Come in for a drink and a bite, and wait for the performance to entertain you for a memorable Sunday Funday.

Leslie Jordan returns for Legacy benefit show
Anyone who has ever seen Leslie Jordan perform in person knows that the impish actor — best known for his Emmy Award-winning performance on Will & Grace and appearances on American Horror Story, and of course his movie roles in Sordid Lives and The Help— is even more of a hoot than his screen persona. He’s a regular fixture on Dallas stages, especially his benefit shows for Legacy Counseling Center and Founders Cottage. He appears this Saturday at the Majestic Theatre for his solo show Leslie Jordan Uncensored. All proceeds from tickets benefit Legacy.
DEETS: Majestic Theatre,
1925 Elm St. 630 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. curtain.
