So, you like to eat out a lot, eh? Got a signed Rachael Ray poster in your living room, do you? You say your cooking skills involve more than a microwave and HotPockets? You're the sort who spends your weekend hours sniffing produce at Central Market?
Are you -- God, we hate the word -- a foodie?
If you're all that, and you can write and are not certifiably, medically insane or a resident of a Texas penal institution, then you might be just what we're looking for. (Even then, some exception might apply. Who are we kidding, right?)
City of Ate needs bloggers who know Dallas, love to eat and drink and can share that love with our readers. (It also helps to have a really thick skin.)
So come on, you City of Ate commenters, regular readers and Dallas...ugh...foodies. Send an e-mail with your qualifications, contact information and samples of your writing to this address.
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.
