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

Exactly one month ago, Dallas-based 7-Eleven announced its plans to drop a shop on every corner in North Texas -- except the ones it's abandoned, eh, Knox and Travis? Well, today comes news of further expansion: The former Southland Ice Company plans on broadening its menu by serving up chicken wings, cinnamon churros and Jamaican beef patties, which sounds ... delicious, right. Turns out 7-Eleven's now using stores around Virginia and North Carolina to try out some new foodstuffs, including whole pepperoni pizzas, which you can cash and carry for $9.99 -- and, dang, I haven't even tried the Turkey and Zesty Havarti on Wheat Nut Bread yet. --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.
