And now for some shameless self-promotion.
Our peeps over in marketing gave us the go-ahead to announce our plans for St. Patrick's Day. You know we love the green day so much that we go and have a parade and then partake in drunken debauchery the rest of the day. Er, wait, we know you partake in such. Yeah. Totally.
Of course, the best part of the parade is the official after party. And headlining the 29th Annual Greenville Avenue St. Patrick's Day Parade Official After-Party will be Ghostland Observatory. The concert will be held in Energy Square (corner of Greenville and University avenues) on Saturday, March 15, immediately following the parade. Gates open at noon. Just know this is a 21 and up show.
Tickets are available to Dallas Observer readers (hey, that's you!) through an exclusive pre-sale beginning this today at 10 a.m. for $12.

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.
