DEN10: MAY 4, 2016

The weather is perfectly springy, the sun is out, the trees are in full bloom, and the crawfish boils have been abounding. This weekend is the mama jama of all local boils though - the 20th Annual Mudbug Boil on Hickory and Fry. This boil has been a great fundraiser for local non-profits and organizations in the community for years. Last year they raised over $35,000 for community initiatives.

FLATLANDER'S TACOS

FLATLANDER'S TACOS

Down the street, around the corner, and up a tiny alleyway lies a little taco shop that we seriously dig. Flatlander's Tacos moved in just around a year ago as they made the leap from food truck to brick and mortar. Now that we don't have to track them down on twitter, we've been working our way through the menu, trying everything out just for you. (Okay, also because tacos.) Read on to find out what our favorite thing between two slices of bread is right now and why your life sucks if you aren't eating their churros on the regular.

COMIC: UNICORN LAKE

COMIC: UNICORN LAKE

We've all experienced it when you first move to Denton. Exclaiming something along the lines of, "Unicorn Lake? That place sounds awesome!" only to be met with disappointment when you end up dining at a Chuy's or working out at Curves. While there are a few respites from chain stores that we do enjoy, there certainly aren't any unicorn statues or anything mythical/mythical. Resident Denton artist, Anna Ryan, explored these sentiments in comic form in the two-panel strip below.

DEN10: APRIL 27

DEN10: APRIL 27

It's getting hotter outside and we're nearing one of Denton's biggest and best fests of the year. We'll be hanging in a beer booth and slinging baked goods at Arts and Jazz Fest this year, after we make sure to catch the Calhoun Middle School Jazz Band on Friday night. We're hopping that this year will be less muddy (fingers crossed) and that the bridge doesn't give out with the ever increasing crowds.

THE WDDI CITY COUNCIL FORUM AT DAN'S SILVERLEAF

THE WDDI CITY COUNCIL FORUM AT DAN'S SILVERLEAF

It feels like we've been spending an awful time sitting at the back of big rooms tweeting what the candidates are putting out there. Okay, it doesn't just feel that way, we actually have been. This has been a lively race, and we've been committed to following it as closely as our schedules allowed.

WHAT WE DID: APRIL 25TH

WHAT WE DID: APRIL 25TH

What a lovely, rain-free spring weekend that was. Denton's Redbud Festival seems to be the only festival that seems to be rainproof. We're wondering if the proximity to Arts and Jazz Fest will help to share some water-proofing, but out weather apps are saying otherwise...

This week not only sees storms and Arts & Jazz Fest, but also early voting starts today so go have fun with that. If you're still undecided (or you just enjoy Dan's or local politics), we're hosting a candidate debate tonight at Dan's Silverleaf. 

What We Did is our weekly roundup of a few of the best photos that have been tagged with #WDDI in the past week on Instagram. 

Below are 20 photos from the past seven days of life in Denton, TX. This week we've got scenes from Friday's Kuzuthon at Harvest House, Keep Denton Beautiful's annual Redbud Festival, Bell and Oak's Gathering Day and much more. 

If you'd like to be included in What We Did, tag your images with #WDDI on Instagram, and check back here next Monday. Search the hashtag #WDDI and check out all of the other awesome photos that we were unable to include this week. Click the images below to be led back to the photographer's Instagram page where you can follow them and like all of their images like the creep that you are.
