There's not much you can get for a buck, and when it comes to food there's not much you can get that qualifies as actual food. Skip the McDonald's drive through tomorrow and head to Pokey O's (3034 Mockingbird Lane) tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. for a treat that only costs $1, including tax. The dessert shop is celebrating its fifth anniversary by offering ice cream cookie sandwiches for just a buck. There are 15 varieties of homemade cookies and 16 flavors of Blue Bell ice cream to choose from to create your treat. If you're stuck doing carpool duty, make a few kids happy with an after-school treat, then return them to their parents for the sugar crash.
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.
