Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

In much colder parts of the country cold water dips are stern dares, scheduled on New Year's Day. Designed to baptize the NYE debauchery out of you, the shiver swims prove that you're still alive, despite all of this calendar flipping business.

In Dallas, the timetable is less pressing. (We like sleeping in and brunch.) And so the Hypnotic Donuts Second Annual Polar Plunge happened on Sunday, January 5, at 4 p.m. in the F.O.E.'s unheated, outdoor pool. The swim was a funds generator for the North Texas Food Bank, and we're told $747.00 was raised. We salute you, brave, crazy fools.

Here are some photos of the questionable decision making in action, from completely dry, sensible and clothed photographer, Danny Hurley.

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.
