We didn't have time to attend the DowntownDallas annual luncheon at the Sheraton -- though, from the sound of it, we didn't miss all that much. (Update: Rudy recorded it -- then, for some strange reason, turned it into a video.) Besides, we got all we needed out of the thousand-strong shindig: Courtesy DD's senior veep of marketing, Kourtny Garrett, I now present to you the organization's new logo. At least, I think that's what this is. That, or someone rubbed my D Spot the wrong way.
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.
