Last night, lovable Oak Lawn dive the Grapevine Bar posted an ad to Craigslist announcing that some of its furniture is up for grabs. Two chairs are being sold for what we're assuming is $1 a piece, but they come with a disclaimer: "May contain vomit."

Yes. Now you can take a little bit of Grapevine Bar history (and smell) home with you!!! Offered are two chairs. One is a winged back brown number featuring pheasants! The other is a pink velour number guaranteed to satisfy! Both have had more ass than Wilt Chamberlain and Madonna combined and imbued with the "essence" * of the bar.

The Grapevine, of course, is only a good projectile-puke away from Dallas Observer HQ, so the chairs may, in fact, contain, our vomit. You'll have to buy one to find out.

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.
