If you've got a special someone to wine and dine on Valentine's Day, chances are you're going to be spending quite a bit of cash on flowers, chocolates or whatever you think it takes to get laid. But you don't necessarily have to spend a lot to show your love--not when Urban Taco's Uptown location (3411 McKinney Ave.) is slashing the price of all desserts this month. Get your cake fix for half-price through the end of February, and while you're there, sample the "I Heart Rita," a pink prickly pear margarita. For $10, you get two margaritas for you and your date, or two for yourself if you're unattached. Being single has its benefits.
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.
