Inspire Yoga, will soon open a location in Denton. The vinyasa yoga facility's first, and only other location, is in Highland Village. Their Denton location will join Pizza Snob in the retail section of the H Squared apartments on Hickory St.
Local music festival, 35 Denton (ex NX35, North by 35, 35 Conferette, etc...) is back with a vengeance after taking a year off. Amidst some shuffling behind the scenes, they decided it was the time of the season to put out their first (yup, that was the first of many) announcement about next March's festival earlier this week. Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, The Zombies, will take the stage in Denton along with a bunch of other great bands. Check out the full list here. More on that soon enough...
It was recently announced that the employee-owned Winco Foods will be the much-anticipated grocery anchor at Rayzor Ranch Town Center. The announcement was met with some dismay which you already know if you follow us on Facebook.
The delicious gringo taco food truck you've no doubt tried out, Flatlanders Taco Company, will open their first brick and mortar store behind Andaman and across from Oak St. Drafthouse early next year. We hope to scope the place out and somehow work out way into getting a free margarita or something... and maybe take a picture or two of the place.
We'll go out with a couple of quick ones:
Salata, a "next-generation salad bar" will open soon at the U Centre on Fry.
Fera's became El Gato Loco a while back somehow, but you don't really need to go there.
The DRC had a great piece on Harvest House, the bar/venue/community space that was once an automotive shop on Hickory (where else?) hope to open March 13th of next year.
We've heard rumors of a artisanal olive oil and balsamic vinegar place going in on South Locust (ugh SoLo).
While this isn't in the realm of new businesses, we figured we'd end this month's Business Update with an urge for y'all to go eat at some of those restaurants stuck in the middle of the construction on Hickory St. Yes, they're open. Andaman, Weinberger's Deli and Mellow Mushroom are in the worst of it and are completely delicious. Personally, the red skin potato pie at Mellow Mushroom is one of our favorite pizzas in town (not to mention their awesome happy hour), and the poached banana over at Andaman is our favorite fall dessert. Go treat yoself and help out some businesses (plus you get to walk across a temporary pedestrian bridge).
