Where the Girls Go/ATX: Heat Wave

It's Friday! And have no fear, Where The Girls Go is here

It’s that time of the week again that makes getting out of bed every Friday morning worth it. And if you’re not as excited for it as I am, then these three suggestions should get you there. Well, that and the forecasted 80+ degree weather. It’s a homo heat wave – or maybe it’s just Texas, and summer’s starting nowish.

FRIDAY: Two words: Butch County. How could you not want to check out a band with that name? And, like Dan Savage always says, it gets better. Hot as Shits opens, and the Swingles headline. Follow that up with two hours of booty-shakin' with DJ Foiiine from DJs Fine & Dandy (with Kate & Andy ), and you’ve got yourself a gay ol’time.

Suggestion: It’s free, it’s queer, and it’s at Cheer Up’s. My suggestion is to go. And I’m not just saying that because Kate’s my editor.

SATURDAY: Make it to the theatre for Add Women and Stir presented by the Dramazons. Why? Honestly, the full name: the, ahem, C-U-Next-Tuesday Chronicles, was good enough for me. But anything described as a satirical “V-Monologues on 'roids” should not only bring out the ladies but also get them laughing.

Suggestion: These Dramazons are putting on a triple-header. So you can juggle it into your busy schedule – or go twice.

SUNDAY: Learn the ropes – literally. Q Toys hosts a rope suspension with rope-making master, Giotto. Sit back in awe with a complimentary cocktail, or take some notes because the toy store promises this will be "part performance, part educational, all gorgeously sexy."

Suggestions: Stretch first.
