A Friend of Unfair Park with an eye for a deal points our direction to this item up for grabs in a Dallas Independent School District surplus-item auction: three pallets of band uniforms and hats. Hell of a deal: Two bids have raised the asking price to a lousy 15 bucks, and all you'll have to do is pick 'em up at the DISD warehouse on 3616 Kiest Street. But you'd best hurry, as the auction closes at 10:39 this morning. Perfect for the drumline flash mob.
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.
