That’s right, fellas. Raising money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the fourth annual Gay Bachelor Auction raffles off some of Dallas’ hottest studs on Sunday. One item on the block is DallasVoice.com entertainment personality, Gus Klein, pictured. Or as we call him Dallas’ own gay Guy Smiley.
With a set of dimples that practically scream, “I’m mischievous” Klein isn’t just a cute face. He’s also one of the best candle makers in Texas.
But Klein’s highest bidder gets a killer night on the town, too: Dinner for two at the epicenter of “new millennium Southwestern cuisine” that would be Stephan Pyles’ gorgeous namesake restaurant. (Menu suggestion: try the key lime-marinated rockfish with cilantro, the lobster-pumpkin soup with pomegranate seeds and some elegant s’mores).
But that’s not all. There are tickets to Sandra Bernhard’s “Everything Bad & Beautiful” at the Majestic Theatre on March 9. Through song and monologues, the scathing critic will most likely sink her claws into Condoleezza Rice, Laura Bush and Lynn Cheney. And she’ll kick out one of the most soulful, rocking covers of Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful.”
Oh, yeah. For the lucky bidder who scores a night with Gus be nice to him. Hopefully he’ll toss in a few of his aromatic creations.
Gay Bachelor Auction: Feb. 11 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at JR.’s Bar & Grill, 3923 Cedar Springs Road. GayAuction.org
