WHAT WE DID: OCTOBER 21ST

Even the most hardcore Dentonite has those days in which they ask themselves, "Why is it again that I live here?" Maybe it's after a trip to a larger city with more to do. Maybe it's after seeing three of their exes in at a show at Dan's. Maybe it's after trying to find a new place to eat and finding out that not only have you tried all the new places already, but that you've been to most of them twice. Whatever the reason - weekends like this past one are the reason that they stick around. There was so much going on this weekend, that you could basically throw a rock in and direction and hit a bassist in the head while he was in the middle of a set (depending on the band, it might not even be noticeable). We checked out lots of what was going on and you guys checked out the rest. Collectively, we got most of it covered. Check out photos from the week that was below and, as always, remember to tag your photos with #WDDI for inclusion in next week's "What We Did." 

Signage is always a popular subject around these parts. Lone Star Attitude got their bright, new sign up a while back. What do y'all think?

Air Review at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. It's always fun to check out live music in some of the beautiful buildings in which we don't normally get to enjoy live music.

Another week, another festival. This weekend found Geezerpalooza taking over Industrial St. Several WDDI readers checked it out. Here's a shot from Hutcher.

It was even Jessica Chavolla's first Denton festival. The weather held out much better than it did for Canned last weekend.

We stopped by Kaleo for our last cold boba tea before it gets cold (that's when we switch to warm boba tea).

We like it when Hannah's embraces hyper-local produce. We probably personally know the names of the people who picked the lion's share of the ingredients in this dish.

Kathleen Black apparently hit up Hannah's, too. We're kinda surprised there was anything left over.

There were plenty of reasons to get outta dodge this weekend. Dallas was full of art. Even Denton's Good/Bad Art Collective came out of partial hibernation to put together potentially their biggest project yet. Dave Koen went and took this dadaist shot.

Reader Deborah Nepal posited that Strickland Middle School's Fall Choir Concert had better music than many Denton bars. We wondered what bars, exactly, she had been frequenting.

Reader, Tara Manzo, tried the "We Denton Do It" pizza at Last Drop Tavern. It's ricotta, garlic, spinach and prosciutto (IIRC) on a white pizza and it's tasty as heck, as she verified for us. Have you tried it yet?
