Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

In case you missed the news posted yesterday to our rockin' sister site DC9 at Night, Sue Ellen's ain't closing, contrary to word on the street. The 19-year-old Cedar Springs landmark is merely moving -- when, dunno just yet. But yesterday our upstairs neighbors, Caven Enterprises, announced that "Dallas’ most successful lesbian nightclub will be getting a new look in a new location," sometime in "the 2nd quarter of 2008."

Also: Caven's shuttering Throckmorton Mining Company, which has been around since 1979. Only, it may be a short-lived closure, as Caven president Gregg Kilhoffer suggests they might be moving TMC into Sue Ellen's current location upon its relocation. Got that? For more on how this reshuffling of the deck will affect a Cedar Springs currently in flux, check out DC9. --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.
