Summer Chill marks anniversary with fundraiser for RCD

It was one year ago this month that the Honey Pot bear mixer came on the scene with its Summer Chill party, and to mark the anniversary it’s back at the Dallas Eagle with this fundraising tea dance. Proceeds from the $5 cover (you can give more) go to Resource Center Dallas, as do 10 percent of vendor proceeds. And the Dallas Diablos will even be selling Jell-O shots to raise money for their team.

Dallas Eagle,
5740 Maple Ave.
2–6 p.m.

Fruit Bowl rolls into Richardson

Gays love to play with their balls — bowling balls, of course. (Oh, and their testes, too.) The annual Fruit Bowl gives you a chance to fab-u-lize the only sport that actually encourages the consumption of alcoholic beverages while you’re playing. A fundraiser for the Human Rights Campaign’s National Coming Out Day project, it’s open to teams of four or five, but you can always show up solo and they’ll place you with others. And don’t forget to dress up like it’s Halloween.

AMF Bowling Lanes
2101 N. Central Expressway, Richardson.
Registration at 2 p.m.,

games start at 3 p.m.

‘Book of Mormon’ arrives at Winspear

It has become the most acclaimed musical of the last decade, this foul-mouthed, politically (and religiously) incorrect musical about Mormon missionaires (some closeted gays) teaching unofficial doctrine to African natives. Suffice it to say, you have to see it to believe it. And you should.

Winspear Opera House
2403 Flora St.
Aug. 21­–Sept. 1.
