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

Look on TV, DIRK; look on Twitter, DIRK; Look on your neighbor's T-shirt, DIRK...and we're not even close to sick of him! His likeness pops up in the most unexpected places, almost the way Jesus appears on a burnt grilled cheese or in pizza sauce.

Perhaps the most unexpected place we've spotted him since the championship is on a dumpster behind Meridian Room on Parry Avenue in Exposition Park. The parking lot, accessible from First Avenue is nothing to look at -- pretty run-of-the-mill, perhaps even a little dark and creepy at times.

But someone -- tagger, nay, graffiti artist, it would appear -- chose to lighten up the space with a rather royal image of Dallas's most highly visible victor.


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.
