BACK IN THE DAY: THE GREAT BLUE NORTHER OF 1911

BACK IN THE DAY: THE GREAT BLUE NORTHER OF 1911

Great jumpin’ Jack Frost it’s cold! Since Texans take to driving on ice about as well as a drunken elephant to water-skiing, most have wisely hunkered down as our last few days of sleet, snow, and ice have caught up with us. It got me to thinking about the Great Blue Norther of 1911, which makes our whining about cold sound plain silly compared to this freeze back in the day.

THE DEN10: MARCH 4

THE DEN10: MARCH 4

There’s not a severe winter storm warning powerful enough to ice our hearts after seeing yesterday’s Dr. Who and TARDIS on the Square comic book cover. It’s on sale March 18th at More Fun Comics & Games so until then, you’ve got a real responsibility to survive winter weather smack-down round three that’s about to hit our quaint village. We recommend indoor activities that include libations, hot soups and a Friends / Netflix marathon in between the top ten events we’re listing here.

Questions comments and soup recipes may be directed towards glen@wedentondoit.com.

WHAT WE DID: MARCH 2ND 2015

WHAT WE DID: MARCH 2ND 2015

Blah, blah, blah...Texas weather is fickle or something - ice then sunshine then snow then ice. We get it. Y'all get it. We still love ya, though, Texas - weather mood swings withstanding. Either way, last week had a lot to offer. There was some spot-on cuddle weather, lots of rain, and plenty of snowfights. Anybody get a bloody nose from a snowball?

What We Did is our weekly roundup of our favorite photos that were tagged #WDDI on Instagram from the past seven days. You can click the images themselves, to be linked back to that photographer's Instagram page. We normally try to keep these posts below 20 photos, but y'all had so many great images this past week (over 500 images were tagged #WDDI), we had to bend our little rule. Let's get on to the photos, then!

NOW OPEN: HICKORY AND FRY

NOW OPEN: HICKORY AND FRY

Hickory and Fry serves kangaroo nachos, y'all. And they aren't just some sort of gimmick. These are legitimate, tasty as hell fried wontons with kangaroo and habañero jam on top. We, having never tasted kangaroo before (the closest we came was watching Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome), had our minds blown upon taking a bite of these. The meat is extremely tender - almost creamy and the homemade habañero jam cuts right through it to create one of our new favorite dishes in Denton. And that's just one thing Hickory and Fry has to offer.
