QUEERLY FESTIVE DINNER & SHOW
December 19, 2018

An ALL AGES winter celebration!!

As winter settles itself in, and the holiday season comes into full swing, we understand that it can become an incredibly difficult time for some. Many members of our community find themselves displaced and without family, which is further exacerbated during Christmas.

To combat this, local non profit and charitable organizations have come together to curate a holiday dinner and show hosted by the Palomino Smokehouse, which is BY DONATION. We want to ensure that each and every person within our community has an opportunity to take part, connect with friends, meet new ones and celebrate our diversity!

THE DUDES ANNUAL CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
December 21, 2018

Presented by The Palace Theatre & X92.9

This celebration happens once a year. It’s festive, amazing and fills the holiday with joy. Family and friends ’tis the season…

The Dudes are legit. They make rock songs that come from the most closely guarded vaults of the emotional banks. They sing about the triumph of good over no good. They trumpet the march of the working class lady. They tell stories of love gained and lost, knife fights, cops and kindness. The dudes want you to see them play live. They would like you to laugh and dance. After the show, they want to give you a high five.
