Trashy Tuesday (Tuesday night gay bar-hopping in Dallas)

“Trashy Tuesday” is the name that some have applied to Tuesday night bar-hopping at gay bars on Fitzhugh Avenue in Dallas. In July 2008, the Crews Inn on Fitzhugh Avenue banned transgender women and drag queens on Tuesdays (its busiest night) because of “Trashy Tuesday” disorder.

Dallas gay bar to ban drag queens on “Trashy Tuesday”
By Ben Briscoe of Dallas Voice
Fueled by cheap drink prices and nearly naked, toned men dancing for tips, Tuesday night bar-hopping on Fitzhugh Avenue is becoming a staple in the Dallas LGBT community. So much so that locals have even given the event a nickname — “Trashy Tuesday.”
But Crews Inn co-owner David Moore says he plans to remove the “T” — for transgender, that is — from the clientele at his Fitzhugh Avenue bar on Tuesday nights.
“Drag queens act like they are divas and think they can’t do no wrong,” Moore said. “They have stolen money straight off the bar, hassled costumers for drinks and locked themselves in the bathroom with a bunch of guys. And with Tuesday being our busiest night, there is just no way for me to keep the draq queens under control then. I don’t want draq queens in here that are going to misbehave.”
That’s why starting Tuesday, July 15 Moore and his employees began asking transgender women and draq queens to leave.
