If the dreary weather's got you down, we have a remedy for you that's cheap and involves alcohol. Come party with us tonight at our monthly Tweet Up Party at The Crown & Harp (1914 Greenville Ave.), but leave those wads of hundreds at home. We know the way to your heart is through cheap drinks and free food, so the bar's serving 25 cent well drinks and draft beer, plus free food, from 6 to 8 p.m. We'll also have live entertainment and complimentary valet parking, so there's no excuse for you not to come, unless you have VIP access at Babydolls. We might want to come to your party then. Since 8 p.m. is too early to call it a night, head over to the Jack Daniel's Saloon inside Palladium Ballroom (1135 S. Lamar St.) after the Tweet Up Party for the first installment of DC9 At Night Presents: Locals Only. The free concert series kicks off tonight with music from the Whiskey Folk Ramblers and Kirby Brown. Pete's got the details on DC9 At Night, but we hear there will be drink specials courtesy of Jack Daniel's. You can RSVP here for our Tweet Up Party and here for DC9 At Night Presents: Locals Only.
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.
