Consider this new feature an extended scavenger hunt.
You know how they work. Here's how we muck it up a bit: Each week we will select an item--something in a local restaurant or pub (or maybe in several restaurants and pubs). Locate it and write in with the correct details, you earn a point. Send photo evidence and you rake in four additional points.
We found a stash of gift certificates and other valuable stuff when the Marketing Department left their door unlocked one afternoon, so every three months we will reward those with the most points. Simple, if you go out a lot.
Two scavenger items this week:
1. The name of a restaurant/bar with a blue Dirk Nowitzki jersey framed and displayed on the wall. It must be a blue jersey, not a white one.
And because that's so easy, 5 bonus points for...
2. The name of a restaurant/bar where Tom Hicks Jr. might say "blow me fuck face" to one of the staff. (We know of two. If you have a third, you'll need to explain your proof).
As with any contest, COA writers are not allowed to win prizes or give hints.
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.
