A couple of items to get you through a gloomy Sunday morning ...

While we're on the subject of rebuilding the block of Lower Greenville destroyed by an electrical fire at Terilli's Tuesday morning, a good Friend of Unfair Park regifts the above photo he received this week: "Luke Zaby and son Vincent with Budweiser Clydesdales in front of his Greenville Grill, known today as the Greenville Bar & Grill."

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.
