RVA 2015: Travel

We love Dallas, but let’s admit it: If you had to live in another Texas city, you’d pick Austin, wouldn’t you? The seat of state government is one of the funkiest towns in America, known for its live music scene (Austin City Limits, SXSW), its alternative air (unofficial motto: Keep Austin Weird) and, best of all [...]

It’s one of the most famous celebrations of queer culture that mainstream society has ever embraced — especially the 1976 cult film — so it was no surprise our readers really took a step up (and to the rii-ii-ii-gg-hh-t) voicing their support for the Dallas Theater Center’s production of The Rocky Horror Show last fall. [...]

Because, like all civilized people, Dallas Voice readers consider their pets members of their families, they like the idea that their children are as welcome at a dining establishment as human toddlers in high-chairs are. In Dallas, where patio dining is a way of life, there are countless options, but what could be better than [...]

What makes a gourmet burger? Nowadays, fancy-pants burgers are the rule more than the exception — from bone-marrow butter to artisinal brioche buns to the omnipresent applewood smoked bacon, the burger is no longer a fast-food sandwich but a bit of culinary artistry. The readers’ selection of Hopdoddy as their favorite burger joint shows they [...]

A trip to the dentist sounds about as fun taking Pat Robertson as your plus-one to a gay wedding, but Dr. Kevin Terrell’s chairside manner makes getting your grill fixed as pleasant an experience as possible. A visit to Terrell’s office — complete with chilled eye masks and massaging chairs — can almost feel like [...]

Locals spent so many years watching the building of the deck park that crossed over Woodall Rodgers and connected Uptown with Downtown, it was easy to overlook what a masterful engineering achievement it was … until it actually opened. The park quickly became a bustling gathering place for everyone. From a dog park to on-site [...]

Some Realtors are known as buyers’ agents, some as sellers’; some do only high-end condos in urban centers, others single-family detached in exclusive  neighborhoods. But Phillip Murrell’s specialty is something different: Serving all the needs of his clients. From 4,000-square-foot mansions in Lake Highlands to quaint Cape Cods in the M Streets to Uptown duplexes, [...]

The first thing anyone who stops into Out of the Closet probably notices — aside from the flamingo-colored ceiling and abundance of name-brand clothing — is how modern and attractive the displays are. It doesn’t feel like you’re rifling through boxes of hand-me-downs at a garage sale, but enjoying a leisure shopping adventure at an [...]

A  lot of people can pour you a drink, but the one with a killer smile, a flirtatious wink or a hot body he doesn’t mind showing off a bit somehow makes a dirty martini taste … dirtier. Well, Dillon Meek, who jerks suds and mixes liquor at Woody’s, has all three of those traits [...]
