Early last week in The New York Times, Mimi Swartz described her love-hate relationship with Dallas. Today in The Times, Richard Woodward describes his love-love relationship with Fort Worth -- specifically, its myriad art museums. But, as Woodward writes, the food in Cowtown ain't so hot: "If the art in Fort Worth is top-notch, the eating was not, at least on this trip." Nice pics too, from none other than Dallas Observer photographer Mark Graham. --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.
