We of the rather casual bent here at Unfair Park have some hoity-toity contacts in the world of seeing and being seen. And don’t even try, because these sources will remain nameless so as to protect their scandalously aloof (yet observing) roll in the scene ... for our sake, naturally.
As in, the swanky sushi spot Kenichi saw its share of superstars last weekend. Chris Rock made an appearance. Ja Rule rubbed elbows with Dallas’ beautiful peeps. Three Dallas Cowboys were hulking, but relatively cool cucumbers. Even the diminutive Michael Johnson, Skyline grad and multiple Olympic gold medalist, was a patron of the Victory Park sushi-tery.
Now, of all those names and all those sizes, take a gander at who gave one of the most good-natured (yet firm) bouncers the most attitude when it came time to leave come 2 a.m.? Let’s just say if you guess correctly, we’ll give you a gold medal. --Merritt Martin
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.
