MB, my office is in Oak Lawn section of Dallas, the epicenter of the Dallas gay community (although Dallas' gay community is largely mainstreamed, these days....).
One of the dominant grocery chains here is "Tom Thumb," and the Tom Thumb store in this 'hood is locally known as the "Mary Thumb."
Many interesting things to see, the gamut, including leathers and leashes, etc. Good fun.
...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...
