Notes the good Friend of Unfair Park who shot us this suitable-for-framing poster, today Mayor Tom's meeting with folks from the Deep Ellum Association, ReelFX and historian Alan Govenar in advance of the June 27 meet-and-greet. There will be plenty more forthcoming in this spot over the next two weeks, as all sides prep their respective presentations concerning the state and fate of Deep Ellum. So clear your schedules now. 'Course, this also seems .. very familiar. --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.
