Sometimes we wish it were possible to infuse class and sophistication through an IV drip, but until then, we'll keep reaching for the stars, unrequited. The next best thing, however, comes this fall when a host of local restaurants have made it possible to imbibe erudition with special "Artini" cocktails through October 31.
Each restaurant will offer a distinct (TBA) recipe, and you can find them at Jorges Tex Mex, Salum, Komali, Dragonfly, Charlie Palmer, Arcodoro & Pomodoro and The Pyramid Restaurant. $1 of every drink ordered goes to the Dallas Area Cultural Advocacy Coalition (DACAC), which bolsters arts funding on the "local, state and national level" and "provides a voice and representation for the arts community in the public forum."
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.
