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

You know the moment. The sun's pouring in on your Rockwellian dinner table, already made up for Father's Day, and Dad's smoking a pipe with the Morning Herald Sun New Times. You lean over to him in your warm sweater and say "Dad, you want a cold beer?" He says yes, and you saddle up to Facebook and electronically "like" him a beer. Ah, the old story. Like the old days.

So, Thank God It's Friday's has a Father's Day gift suggestion for you. A recent announcement from the Texas-based chain launched the new "buy your friend a beer" app on Facebook, which allows you to electronically purchase a loved one's brew.

Not sure what kind of Dad you have (The Mixmaster broke down the many Dad classes), but a recent study from Planet Earth shows that 99.9 percent of people love beer. T.G.I. Friday's totally hip way of cashing in on beer-loving is available now through the Facebook page.

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.
