We just wanna know if we can tip
When six British gents lose their steel mill job and figure stripteasing is the way to make some cash, we applaud their entreneneurial efforts — especially if they have triceps and pecs like these. But most don’t in WaterTower’s The Full Monty. Regular Joes take it off for pound notes in their thongs and present beef in all shapes, sizes and songs.
DEETS: WaterTower Theatre, 15650 Addison Road. Through Aug. 15. $25–$40. WaterTowerTheatre.org.
Vegans like to grill too, you know
Mercy For Animals Dallas is blunt when it points out this sweet face could be a family pet but that Babe the pig could be dinner. Animal-rights activisits and vegans know non-meat food can be just as satisfying. They’ll prove it with the Dallas branch’s launch party and vegan barbecue. MFA also shows off its new office which luckily is close to a pool.
DEETS: CityScape Dallas, 6467 Melody Lane. Noon. RSVP at EddieG@MercyForAnimals.org.
We heart our gay-friendly straight bears
Filmmaker Kevin Smith hits the road with longtime producer Scott Mosier for a night of lewdness and gratutitous sex onstage — only not that way. Their Smodcast Tour is like This American Life but with gay jokes and crass tales — and we love it.
DEETS: Granada Theater, 3524 Greenville Ave. 8 p.m. $40–$60. GranadaTheater.com.
