This isn’t just monkey business | Dallas Voice | Monkey & The Bee

We’re famous (kinda)!

In the news … We were humbled by the request by the Dallas Voice to do an article about our company for this years’ Pride edition.

Instfamous … or at least we felt that way when the article came out. Want to know more about Monkey & The Bee … this is a great article that tells you more about what we are about and how we are involved with the lgbtq community in Dallas.

Monkey & The Bee hit the road and set up shop at RMC in Longview, Texas.

EAST TEXAS STYLE … 

Most recently, The Bee and Tommy & Glenn, hit the road to set up shop in Longview, Texas at RMC. This was our first venture outside the Big D and boy was it a great trip. We left Dallas on a Friday night a couple weeks ago, drove out to Longview, set up shop, and mingled with the crowd at RMC, then headed back home. It was a long night but well worth it! We had a great time meeting new people and of course selling some tees and tanks!

Everyone at RMC, from the owners, staff, and patrons of the bar were so very welcoming and supportive of Monkey & The Bee. We can’t wait to go back with new designs and styles!

Out and about! Of course, we have been setting up shop all over Dallas for the past couple of months. Some of the great businesses that have allowed us to set up shop include: The Round-Up Saloon & Dance Hall, S4 – The Rose Room @S4, and Cedar Springs Tap House.
