Dillon Meek by Kat Haygood

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 … and a little something extra that made him a popular selection by our readers as sexiest bartender. We won’t argue — in fact, we’ll have another round.

CHER

Wayne Smith by Kat Haygood

Wayne Smith spent 18 years entertaining Dallas audiences with his drag performances, especially his piece-de-la-resistance: a flawless impersonation of Cher that even earned accolades from Cher herself. So when he relocated to Columbus, Ohio, in 2011 with husband Ben Wilson, it was a sad departure. But we believe in life after the Midwest. Wayne and Ben couldn’t resist the pull of Texas: Last year, they moved back to Dallas, and Smith has once again set down roots along The Strip, proving himself strong enough to be named our readers’ favorite karaoke host. (He performs every night except Sundays at clubs around town.) Although he can’t turn back time, it’s as if he never left here.
