The Street : Reportage

The Dallas Observer, a free newspaper, which is neither wholly a gig guide, a classifeds paper, or a gossip rag, ran an article about our favourite Street.

On thinking back to Saturday night, i distinctly remember having three or four comversations with who i suspect was the writer and her entourage, who had mentioned to me that they were some sort of writer/research team.

The article slams the area, and is a fair representation of the feel of the area although some of the allegations about the individual bars are not accurate i do not know the last time i saw "the gyrating rumps at the Old Crow".

That's a pretty cool article... one of those "This place is evil and full of scumbags, morons and criminals. You should check it out." type deals.

I think I like that magazine.

Something like that. You should have a look at the articles by Jim Schutze. He is the resident critic of local govt. Some scathing and accurate reporting.

GLADIATORS!
Upon reading the first couple paragraphs i was a bit enraged at the trash talk about our surrogate home, as we're there more than most people would consider normal. However, after continuing my reading, ive decided that this is actually a very well written article with most of the bad points aimed not towards the bars themselves, (other than shitty parking and loud music and potholes, but honestly, thats more than half of dallas anyways) but towards the yuppies and gangsters that frequent them. You can't blame myspace bands and cheap booze for all the madness that goes on there.. where else is a broke (or even dare i say the 'money concious' [and i dont mean frugal]) college student supposed to go to get cocked? How about a street full of bars where the competition on both sides of the street affords for somewhat decent alcohol prices, a guarenteed throw down or stabbing and a meal? It reminds me of the Coliseum.

Right on. It's a circus, and if you want to go it'll be waiting for you :)
