Winners Can Take a Joke
For nearly a decade now, Democrats have had the upper hand at the polls in Dallas County with family lawyer Darlene Ewing at the helm as county party chairwoman. And if changing a historically red county to blue seemingly overnight wasn’t impressive enough, Ewing and the party have had to overcome a wave of missteps and alleged criminal actions by some of its most high-profile politicos. Luckily for the Dems, he who laughs at the polls laughs best, so Ewing and the party are up for a few jokes as local comedians Tony Stone and Dave Little, musicians Lucky Pierres and food from Dream Café highlight a party fund-raiser honoring Ewing at Pocket Sandwich Theater, 5400 E. Mockingbird Lane, from 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday. Tickets for the uncomfortably named “The Dallas Donkey Show” vary in cost, with single tickets available for $50.
