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.Read More

A little over 5 years ago Tim Love re-opened the Love Shack Denton to become a premier steak house - Queenie’s. Over time their dishes got more flavorful, more interesting, and we figured out that their bar was one of the best kept secrets in town. Now, they have an all new chef, Christopher Alford, who is serving up expertly executed dishes throughout the menu. We’re not only impressed - we’re a little blown away by the quality of craft-fare that is coming out of his kitchen. If you’re starting your year with a vegan-raw diet - look away now.Read More
The upside to all the freezing cold weather is that the dang mosquitoes are deader’n Dillinger, but still doesn’t mean we Dentonites like it too much. Luckily, the weekend is bringing warmer temps so here’s a look at our top #DEN10 events to check out as you’re out and about.Read More
Temperatures have been up and down during the winter season in Denton, but we’re likely to see several more days and nights of below-freezing temperatures before spring arrives.
The bad news is that not everyone in Denton has a coat to protect themselves adequately from the cold weather. According to the most recent available data from the Denton County Homeless Coalition, Denton County has over 200 homeless people, and about 15% of them are children. Nearly 20% of our local homeless population are considered chronically homeless according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s definition. According to the latest US Census Bureau data, a further 60,000+ Denton County residents live below the federal poverty line and therefore might not be able to afford appropriate winter clothing.
The good news is that the people at Friends With Benefits are trying to change that. For those who might not be familiar with FWB, it’s a local nonprofit organization that works to raise awareness and funds for local charities. One campaign that FWB has been running for the last few years is Keep Denton Warm where they collect coats, socks, hats, scarves, and other warm clothing items for Dentonites who can’t afford to buy them. This season’s campaign started in September with a movie night on the square.Read More
