So, you say you wanna meet Drew Barrymore -- have ever since E.T. or maybe since she gave Dave Letterman a birthday surprise? Well, this week you get your chance: She's doing a meet-and-greet at Urban Outfitters in Mockingbird Station on Wednesday. But, of course, it's first come, first served, so how to get served. Well ... wristbands for the how-do will be handed out beginning at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday; Barrymore will stroll the, um, red carpet 'round 7ish. At that time, the folks behind the visit have wrangled quite the perfect li'l stunt: Barrymore, who's in town to promote her directorial debut, the shot-in-Austin roller-grrrl Whip It, will be made an "official" Dallas Derby Devil. Then, at 7:15, the autograph free-for-all will ensure. You've been warned: Bring your own helmet.

Incidentally, one of the best things about Whip It is Andrew Wilson -- right, Bottle Rocket's Future Man. Turns out, he may be the most talented of the Wilson brothers after all.

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.
