Tap That Ass
A Gay for a Day Lifestyle Service
They’re snappy dressers, throw dazzling parties, and make a mean souffle.
Which is why you need Jason Napolitan. The founder of A Gay for a Day will clean your closets (that sequin sheath has got. to. go.), host a neighborhood soiree, and choose gifts for all 25 of your closest friends — or he’ll find someone who will.
Working with a team of fabulous friends, the 27-year-old homo will do everything from plan a kick-ass anniversary outing to get your grass mowed (girl, they have lesbians for that) — and he does it with style and precision.
Hire him for an hour, a day (as the name implies), or a month. He’s at your service, whether you need someone to out your ex or pick out your lingerie.
Just don’t ask him to be your boyfriend.

Spring cleaning season came and went without you lifting a pretty little finger.

Though you will have to use that finger.

Graveyard Drawer Treatment
Like a good horror flick, your cosmetic drawer consists of putrid fluids, menacing blobs, and a few scream-inducing sights.
Sounds like you need the Graveyard Drawer treatment. Good thing Sandra Witten of Park Cities Cosmetic Dermatology is offering the fifteen-minute private consultation for free with an appointment through August 31.
It’s painless, we promise. Just bring your facial supplies (yes, even the scary ones) — moisturizers, acne creams, cleansers, loofahs, scrubs — for Witten to dissect. Then, depending on your skin type, the former model will determine which products are keepers and which need a good burial.
For things that need replacing or are altogether absent, she’ll give some good recommendations.
So those bad habits won’t come back to haunt you.
Park Cities Cosmetic Dermatology, 8226 Douglas Avenue, suite 540 (214-692-7447 or dallascosmeticcenter.com). One session per customer, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
