Today is the last day that Dude Fooder Noah W. Bailey will actually work here in our Dallas Observer offices. He's leaving us, moving on, spreading his bearded wings. (Don't get too upset -- we think we've gotten him to say he'll still contribute to our fine publication on occasion.) Sad to see him go, I picked up the one breakfast I could think of that would make my "work spouse" of six years sigh, lean back in his shitty, busted office chair, and smile.
Barbec's beer biscuits. We've lauded them before by way of Best of Dallas awards, but there's just no way to truly give them their due. They're high as the heavens, soft on the inside, crusty on top, sweet from beer, perfect with some gravy (or grape jelly, if you prefer), and that's still not saying it all...but there's still one left, and I really don't like to talk with my mouth full.
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.
