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

I'd say that Saturday's Dine Around Uptown was a success. And of course, I define success as a solid buzz peppered with bites of delightful food and a celebrity sighting (Paula Deen popped out of a limo at ZaZa), all while being whisked from place to place by paid DDs.

The North Texas Food Bank defines success in meals, as in meals provided by the donations made by people like you and me. Last year, that number was more than 47 million.

Saturday's event was hosted by the North Texas Food Bank's Roundtable group, which helps bring young, professional, would-be philanthropists into the food bank's fold. Here's a bit of what was poured and served at Dine Around Uptown.

The progressive event began at Private Social, went next to Dee Lincoln's Bubble Bar, and finally to Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa.

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.
