WHAT WE DID: NOVEMBER 11TH

We went back to being our normal fat ass selves this weekend. We hope you like food photos, because there's a bunch of it below. Burgers, chicken fried steak, smoked meats, etc... It's all included in this week's What We Did. Also, we were in a parade and hung out at The DIME Store for a while. Y'all took some great photos, too. Ya know what? Now that we're thinking about it, this is a pretty gosh darn great post. Have fun perusing them! And remember to tag your photos with #WDDI on your social network of choice to get included in What We Did every Monday morning.  

Lone Star Attitude had a soft opening over the weekend. They officially launch to the public starting today, November 11th. Above is the "Georgie Boy," their burger with bacon and cheddar. Our expectations for the place were all over the place, but now that we've finally been there, we're happy to say that LSA is a welcome addition to the Denton square. While the sign or overall feel might be a bit more "in your face" than many are happy with, they are able to pull it off. The food is good and cheap and the atmosphere is fun. It's definitely a wonderful spot to take out-of-towners and/or family visiting you in town. We'll have more of our thoughts on LSA in a separate post tomorrow.

Most places with vibes like LSA have overly sweet drinks, but we found the drinks - most of which are tequila or vodka based - to be very well thought out, and believe us when we say we tried a lot of the drinks.

There's even a nod to the former occupant of the space inside. You can catch it if you keep looking up.

The dudes over at Pan Ector were awesome enough to get us a limited edition run of some "Mean Green" UNT shirts for  the Homecoming Parade this past Saturday. Maybe you caught some of us on top of a float yelling at you about your haircut or that sweater we liked. Where did you get that sweater anyway? Thanks Pan Ector!

Reader Sarah Adams (and a bunch of other WDDI friends) went to UNT's Homecoming game, too.

We checked out Loop 288's pedestrian bridge at night. Still a fun walk, but could definitely use some additional lighting up there. The current ambiance is very "mugging friendly."

Watch out Denton, we're all over meetings and committees near you.

If you really want to make some change that can be noticed in town, we encourage you to do the same - join a committee or group and start giving your opinion. We know you have them. The breakfast taco committee is full, though.

We had a Christmas-themed photobooth at The DIME Store's Holiday Open House this past Saturday. Here's a few of the shots from the participants. We had a fun time and can't wait to lose our paycheck buying Christmas presents for our friends and family at DIME. The new guy's section is fun, too. 

We also made it over to the newly-opened Horny Toad Cafe over in the old Good Eats spot on the loop. - another family-friendly (and more upscale than we had originally imagined) eatery that's popped up on the scene in the past week.

This enormous chicken fried wagyu steak may give Cartwright's a run for its money as far Denton's best CFS goes.

Horny Toad Cafe features lots of "Farm to table" ingredients on their menu. The restaurant is owned by the same people behind The Abbey Inn, too. It's a much better use of the space than Good Eats ever was and we actually will probably go back again sometime. Above is the smoked meatloaf and organic "mash."

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra has an 'On the Go' preformance at UNT's Murchison Performing Arts Center last week. We especially enjoyed a particular flutist with a gold flute who played with plenty of flair.

Made a quick trip out to Lake Ray Roberts to get a glimpse of Texas fall at it's finest. The trees were turning, the air was crisp and a few campfires made us feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
