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

Us, we're eating lunch at our desks today, like always. But you can dine (for the odd, odd price of $12.76) with mayoral runoff candidates Tom Leppert and Ed Oakley at the Belo Mansion, where the Dallas Bar Association is hosting a forum at which the two gentlemen will try to win yer vote and, of course, your hearts. The forum, scheduled from noon till 1:15 p.m., is free and open to the public; the buffet's strictly optional. If you want to attend, just shoot an e-mail here. Just don't ask Tom Leppert, "Who the heck are you?" Because that's just stupid. --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.
