With the city on red alert due to the epidemic of chronic latenightous, most of us wake up feeling like the living dead … so why not exploit it? Every Zombie Stumblin’ is Saturday’s call to the undead. It combines the beloved zombie walk with a bar crawl, dancing and a flash mob. While that might normally require too much “brain” activity for real zombies, we can all revel in the fact that we’re actually human, aren’t infected and can take off layers of make-up at the end of the day. Stumbling begins at 4 p.m. Saturday and continues on until the bars close. Dress as your favorite zombie, your favorite thing turned zombie, a zombie hunter or, what the hell, Mayor Mike and a mosquito. The location is hush-hush until closer to the event (dang flash mobs) but it will be in the downtown/Deep Ellum areas — just keep a carefully peeled eyeball on the EZS Facebook page, facebook.com/events/213953365386383/, and be sure to register (it’s free!) on the Eventbrite page, everyzombiestumblin.eventbrite.com.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
