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

If you've been watching Top Chef you've probably noticed John Tesar's quirky habit of perching is thick-rimmed glasses on his inquisitively wrinkled forehead. What you might not have noticed is the look may quickly become what is the dorkiest Internet meme I've seen in some time.

Local chefs (and editors) are getting in on the fun too.


You know this guy. He's opening up a seafood restaurant next to Goodfriend

You knew #TopGinger supporter Brian Luscher was going to get in on the fun.

And you pretty much knew this was coming next.

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.
