"Decadance"

Halloween comes early and often for the outlandish, outrageous “patients” in the care of Shawn Benét’s MadHouse — an out-of-the-box series billed as “San Antonio’s newest monthly alternative drag show.” Having recently served up a sinister smorgasbord of drag antics headlined by controversial queen James Majesty (runner-up on season two of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Search for the World’s Next Drag Supermonster), host Shawn Benét and partner in crime DJ Mr. Grim have assembled a stacked roster for “Decadance” — an “over-the-top, flamboyant-as-fuck, loud and proud night of alternative drag honoring the gayest things about our community!” Benefiting the tradition-bucking Austin International Drag Festival (November 15-18), the evening promises “gay anthems blasting,” food and drink specials and unpredictable interpretations from nearly 20 performers — including MadHouse mother Shawn Benét, mainstays Miss Taint and Paradox Rei and newbies Giomara Bazaldua, Queen Squirtbox and the drag king troupe Los Mentirosos.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
