We’re not sure what culinary masters would think of this pairing, but Weenies & Martinis sounds just fine to us.

The best part is that 100 percent of the proceeds go to LSR Fighting AIDS.
DEETS: Jack’s Backyard, 2303 Pittman St. 7:30 p.m. $20. Search the event on Facebook.com
Next comes the senior discount
Likely your funny bone has been tickled by Paul J. Williams at one point or another. So pay him back with birthday greetings at his 50 and Fabulous gathering in the upstairs bar. He’ll appreciate your presence far more than the subscription to AARP that will be in his mailbox soon.
DEETS: JR.’s Bar & Grill, 3923 Cedar Springs Road. 9 p.m. PaulJWilliams.com

DEETS: Music Hall at Fair Park, 909 First Ave. 8 p.m. Through June 26. $15–$70. DallasSummerMusicals.org
