People are sick of big. Big business, big government and, yes, even big sports and the ticket prices that go with them. But fear not, cheapskate baseball fans. Independent league teams, like our own Grand Prairie Airhogs, don’t just put the hometown back in the hometown team, they also make it affordable. And this Labor Day, that affordability extends to tequila on Margarita Night. Not as wacky as some of their promo nights, but who complains about a discount margarita? Grand Prairie’s Airhogs face off against the Amarillo Sox 7:05 p.m. Monday at QuikTrip Park, located at 1600 Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie. Tickets start at $12.

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.
