The least Stephanie Lucero could have done last night, while busting wide open this swingers joint in McKinney, was toss off an obligatory Swingtown reference. C'mon, CBS' hit series about swinging in the '70s airs tonight at 9:03. (Sounds interesting: "Laurie and Doug interrupt her parents' 'after party' with Brad and Sylvia.") Because, look, Stephanie, it's all about synergy. And thinking outside the Kleenex box sitting next to a bare white mattress and ... say, what in the hell is that blue thing at 2:02 into the video posted after the jump? Is that a bong? Um, I don't think so. --Robert Wilonsky

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.
