Final bets at the finale of Team DV’s P-P-P-Poker Tourney

Ante up to the table

Team Dallas Voice and Pocket Rockets Dallas are raising money for the Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS by holding a P-P-P-Poker Tournament at clubs across town. After three weeks, the event has come to the grand prize final.

Because this is Dallas, not Vegas, the game play is free, so if you want to contribute to the LSR cause, bring cash to enter the raffle. Among the prizes available or that have been won are tickets to see Dolly Parton (we’ll resist the urge to call this one a “booby prize”), Ke$ha and Chelsea Handler,  tickets to the Texas Rangers and Lone Star Park horse races, Starbucks coffee, a set of poker chips, books, grooming supplies and much more … and the final grand prize: Two tickets on American Airlines anywhere in the contiguous U.S.

DEETS: Check out the Facebook event page here for details.

Ex-Dallas Star Sean Avery comes out for marriage equality — but Big D doesn’t make his gay list

While he was with the Dallas Stars in 2008-09, Sean Avery was quick to make gay friends in Big D and even took his teammates to a Nieman Marcus fashion show.

Now that Avery is with the New York Rangers, he’s gone a step further — speaking out in favor of marriage equality in the video above.

In an interview about the video with The New York Times, Avery doesn’t reference his brief, controversial stint in Dallas:

“The places I’ve played and lived the longest have been in West Hollywood, Calif., when I played for the L.A. Kings, and when I moved to New York, I lived in Chelsea for the first four years,” Avery said in a phone interview. “I certainly have been surrounded by the gay community. And living in New York and when you live in L.A., you certainly have a lot of gay friends.”

Another kind of Chelsea wedding: Secty. Clinton retains cold feet

President Bill Clinton may now be with us on everything including the word “marriage.” But Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has yet to complete her own evolution process:

Clointon-Advocate

Well, I share his experience because we obviously share a lot of the same friends, but I have not changed my position.”

-Secretary Clinton, speaking to The Advocate

So it’s pretty much official: Hillary Clinton wants to run for President in 2016.
