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

In a subscriber-only story from Daily Deal, looks like Northwest Dallas-based Dave & Buster's is for sale to the highest bidder -- or, barring that, whoever wants it. Says the piece, Wellspring Capital Management LLC's decision to offload D&B's comes as a surprise to bankers and execs who don't think the market's strong enough for such a big-dollar purchase. Wellington paid nearly $400 mil two years ago to take the chain private and first tried to sell the chain last August for about $600 mil, then pulled it from auction when it could find no takers. I'd like to buy the chain, but using only Skee-Ball tickets. --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.
