Spring Break is wrapping-up and students will be returning, but the tulips are in bloom in Pilot Point as our spring fever (and allergies) kicks into high gear. Since there is never any shortage of happenings, here is a look at our top #DEN10 events to check out as y’all are out and about #DENTONING this coming St. Patrick’s Day weekend.
When someone brings up classic horror films like Rosemary’s Baby or The Exorcist, do you point out that those films started out as novels? If so, Recycled Books has the event for you! Saturday, March 17, at 6:00 PM, Recycled Books will be hosting celebrated author Grady Hendrix. Hendrix has recently published Paperbacks from Hell, a history of the evolution of mid-20th-century horror novels, including a discussion of some of those novels’ most notorious covers and the artists who created them.
“Sustainability” is a common word heard about business practices these days, but what if a business could move beyond sustainability and actually be a regenerative force for the community? Newly-founded local B Corp Regenrus aims to do just that and will be hosting a soft launch celebration on February 23 to kick off the company and connect with the community.
What image pops into your head when someone uses the word “maker”?
The images that tend to appear in the mind—not to mention Google’s image search—involve wires and circuit boards. As important as those skills and the people who enjoy them are, they only represent one type of maker. Many skills can fall under the maker umbrella, whether it’s programming robots to make pancakes or turning a bicycle wheel into a musical instrument. Artists, scientists, crafters, and engineers can all be considered makers. If you can take a set of materials and transform them into something cool, you are welcome in the maker community!
Whether you’re into Valentines or Galentines, we’ve added a lil’ something extra for y’all in this week’s events round-up. Everyone could use a little Vday love, so here’s a look at our top #DEN10 events to check out as you’re out and about #DENTONING this next week.
February is for lovers, maybe because the cold snap necessitates cuddling after the Groundhog spotted his shadow, but mid-month also coincides with Mardi Gras and lots of events around town! Here’s our top WDDI #DEN10 events you can’t miss with #Dentoning a’plenty.
February has snuck up on us as 2018 hits its stride, which means lots of happenings and #Dentoning a’plenty around town. You can check out our picks for the best Denton-area events in our weekly Den10 post. This week's list is below!
One of the many things that gives Denton its independent character is our thriving arts scene. The Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) is one of the organizations that supports that scene, and on February 7th, they’re giving the community the chance to hear from local award-winning watercolor painter Jo Williams.
