    Good place for lunch when doing the museums
    Good quality and inexpensive place to stop for lunch when out to the Modern, Amon Carter, Kimble museums in Fort Worth. Friendly staff is good but par for Fort Worth, what I really like other than their food is the quietness of the place. If you hate noisy restaurants and like good but inexpensive food then this is an easy walk across the street from 3 major museums which make for an excellent date stop on a cold winter weekend day. Nice place to sit and talk.

    The Most Gay Friendly Church in Dallas
    There are several genuinely gay friendly churches in the Dallas area. COH is as gay oriented in its parishioners as a church could get and it has a mix of older to younger, male and female, singles, couples, and even gay families with children in an ecumenical setting. I find Jo Hudson to be as inspiring of a minister as I have ever experienced and never fail to connect to a genuine sense of peace and love when I attend services she delivers. They will often feature a guest speaker and the services are diverse in that way with guests being of some significant religious or socio-political context and always with an interesting story or theme to share that is easily identified with by gay people. For me this was similar to my experiences in Unitarian churches in the summer season and I felt quite at home for it. COH is an ecumenical church with a Christian basis and has iconoclastic elements of a range of Christian churches. In that, I personally know members that range from ex-Mormons to Protestant to Catholic backgrounds who feel at home in that setting for its inclusiveness of gay people. There is a coffee/snack session between the services so make sure to come early for the 2nd service, or stay late after the first service and mingle. It is Dallas though and be aware that one needs to actively make conversation with people as they will not come up to you and try to "recruit" to join the church. If you are new then make sure you come a bit early and stop by the hospitality center at the end of the book/gift store on the right of the entry hall, grab a cup of Java and be officially greeted by the welcome committee there (their clue that you are new is your stopping by and looking at the printed information sets about aspects and events of the church, and you can sign in for an email list to get the sermon topic and speaker for the Sunday AM services. There are many aspects and activities of this church and there are age-range specific groups. So there is much connection that can be developed beyond the Sunday AM service, so if you are new ask the welcoming person at the hospitality area anything you are interested in or a run down in general and you should get most of it, but its a big place with lots going on so you really need to come a couple times, and talk with people, and you will find out more and eventually may feel at home for it. It is a big and diverse group though so it really does take a little time to make your connections with the people I think, just as in any big church that does not have a proselytizing aspect. COH is a bit different than other large churches in that people come from far away and do not necessarily come ever Sunday, so it takes some time to meet people. COH is warm, and loving, but they won't tell you what to think or do, it is merely a place to connect with God and love in a Christian sense, without judgement for your gay identity and in a maximally inclusive sense, be it race, socioeconomic, gay, or political aspects. So come and hear Jo and decide for yourself if it has what you are looking for in a church, and make sure to participate in the non-service related events as well.

    Fun stop
    The MAC is free with a 5 buck contribution and it makes for a great gathering spot for meeting friends in uptown before dinner or a play at Kitchen Dog Theater. They rotate their stuff aver 5 or 6 weeks or so there is usually something new there that is different with a flare. Not a classical art place, more avaunt guard. Combine this and a quick bite to eat at Cafe Express down the block and a play at Kitchen Dog Theater and you have a pretty decent evening or date for as inexpensive as it gets for dinner and theater in Dallas with lots of time to talk with your friends or special bud.

    Fun trip
    This place is great for visitors, small groups, or even a date. Plan on being there 4 hrs though because you can walk through their open jungle space and really take a lot of moments to see things going on in the brush around you. Its not an inexpensive outing but it offers up mucho photo ops and is quite fun. They have doubled the size of the place and it now takes up several stories of an entire city block, and is quite extensive and encompassing. Makes for a great date event because it is a adventure and you can talk as well.

    Baseball
    Nice place to go to catch a baseball game mid afternoon when Rangers are playing on the west coast and have a 2PM game time. The back bar is not crowded and you can get the game on the bigscreen and actually hear it as well.

    The place where Ft Lauderdale began
    Are you into swimming, or were you ever into swimming? Then you HAVE to check the schedule and see if you can get some lane time here while visiting Ft Lauderdale. This place rocks for swimming and has mucho mambo space with different water temps even. Come work out with Olympic aspirants and swim in the lanes formerly occupied by HUGE swimmers in the sport. Even the locker rooms and showers are fun. Plenty of space everywhere. Make sure to check the schedule though and plan your time on days when this place is open and not leased to college and AAU events because it is a popular facility. Hands down this place is 5 stars. Formerly Swimming Hall of Fame training center, the museum is still next door and if you are an jock or ex jock and hold your mouth right the nice lady there will not even charge you the seven bucks to get in to see all the multitudinous memorabilia exhibits. Ride an ATB bike here or take a bus if you can and you can save on the parking as its a block from the beach and beach parking rates do apply here.

    Good happy hour
    Went there with the ex when I was visiting for happy hours many times. Good crowd with a neighborhood bar element and regulars. Watch out for the cops that park in the lot across 6th Ave if you are walking out that way, it looked like they were waiting for their next DUI opportunity.
