THE DEN10: JULY29th

THE DEN10: JULY29th

This week’s top 10 list is brought to you by sitting in a cold, dark room with headphones listening to the Interstellar soundtrack while convincing ourselves it’s not a hundred million degrees outside. How / why is it patios are so dang popular in Denton? What are you people thinking? We have the technology, people. Go find some AC and sip on a freezing tasty beverage while waiting out the end of this incredibly boring and eventless Denton summer. Nothing EVER happens around here. Except in the basement of J&J’s this week which is where just about everything is happening.

WHAT WE DID: JULY 27TH

Its been a lazy summer in Denton and it hasn't been any different at We Denton Do It. Glen had to take a Rip Van Winkle-esque nap from Tuesday to Friday after the craziness that was last Monday so the Den10 took a break. Looks like y'all still found plenty of stuff to do, though! 

What We Did is our weekly roundup of photos that WDDI staff and readers have taken over the past seven days. We've got nineteen of our favorite images from the week below.

If you'd like to be included in What We Did, tag your images with #WDDI on Instagram, and check back here next Monday.

CONFEDERATE SOLDIER STATUE VANDALIZED

CONFEDERATE SOLDIER STATUE VANDALIZED

As of early this morning, it has the words, "THIS IS RACIST" written in red spray painted capital letters across the top of the arch. The statue has been the subject of much debate recently, with many calling to have it torn down or at the very least relocated to a less prominent location. Many others, thought the statue should stay (you can read comments on our Facebook page). A group who call themselves Dentonites Against Racist Traditions, had a few meetings to discuss how to get the statue, which is a Texas Historical Marker, removed. The group, which sought to work to remove the statue within the confines of the law, recently took a break from their meetings to look into removing the historical marker
