Canned Fest is going down this weekend so if you like beer and / or music I'd make sure and secure some tickets for it because it's shaping up to be quite an event. This week is really going to be out of control as far as things to do, so it was actually a bit of a challenge to pair it all down to the top 10 things we think you should be doing. Why just ten? Well because it's physically impossible to do every single thing that Denton has to offer and any discerning young adult has to make decisions about what is worth their time or not. The all inclusive lists become overwhelming so we try and help ease the stress of staring into the abyss of lists of everything and chop it down to something manageable for the average creative citizen. Think we missed something super important? Write us an email or a comment because we love hearing from folks and we are always on the lookout for the next interesting, fun, weird thing happening in our humble town. Feel something should get featured in a post? Instagram with a #WDDI and we'll feature what you've got in our Monday What We Did post. Be creative and think outside the box.
