"Whether we're highlighting the talents of local artists, celebrating the city's vibrant and expanding food scene or directing readers to the best of North Texas' culture, bars, nightlife and shops, if it's important to Dallas, we've been there to cover it, good and bad.

Through it all, our writers have been true "observers," wandering with eyes open and notebooks ready to bring Dallas' hidden gems to surface, making the weekly newspaper a priceless resource for people who love Dallas as much as we do.

Love? Yeah, that's right. If we've raked up some muck searching for those gems, that's because we love what Dallas is and what it can become. Just don't tell anyone, though. We have a reputation to maintain."
