Leather and lace
Women of leather head to Dallas for the Women’s International Leatherfest 2012 (or lovingly acronymed WILF) this weekend for a series of panel discussions, parties and a healthy dose of leather culture. This year’s keynote speaker is Slave Jody wherein we hope she is given permission to speak.

A night of Pound-ing
Funny lady Paula Poundstone brings her comedic recounts of life as a single mom, NPR contributor and more for this one night only show. She had such a good run the last time she stopped in the parts, that she was kind enough to give Dallas another chance to partake in the punchlines. Saturday night’s all right for laughing.
