Sports bars and any restaurant with a giant-ass television will be packed tonight with football fans watching the Cotton Bowl, so head on over to Nana (2201 Stemmons Freeway) for Friday Night Flights. The popular monthly wine series is back with an evening dedicated to Syrah wines. Sample wines from three vineyards along with dishes like cavatelli with lamb Bolognaise and grilled flank steak. For $20, you'll get all this, plus a spectacular view of the city. Guys, if you are going to sport your LSU or Texas A&M gear, just remember to throw on a blazer.
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.
