Like I wrote last week, Kidrobot's opening in Mockingbird Station this evening ... though it would appear the former Erica Wright has already paid a visit to the joint. The grand-opening fete kicks off at 6 p.m., and it's first come first served with one of those limited-edition golden art-toys, courtesy Huck Gee. From the looks of the Kidrobot blog, folks are already lining up for theirs -- seriously, that's quite the queue. A few of us are heading over shortly; slide show tomorrow, but of course. Till this evening, then, the shoppe's provided a video sneak preview of what appears to be a relatively tiny space; it's after the jump.
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.
