WHAT WE DID: JULY 29

Summer in Denton is normally when the college kids leave and the town gets a little sleepy. That hasn't really proved true this summer, as we're still exhausted from all of the activity the last weekend of July had for us. We kicked off the weekend with the Creatives Mixer at the DIME Store organized by Maker Space. We chowed down on The Pickled Carrot, sipped on some new local beer, and chatted about creative commerce in our city. After that we hit up a few shows. You might have caught us peeking into the Ladies of Spiderweb Salon showcase at J&J's, checking out The Tissue Issue at Banter, or standing in line at the bar at Dan's. We got some great reader submissions this week, too. Keep it up, y'all.

 Zero96 Brewing Co. kept us adequately hydrated with plentiful samples of their local ales. We really liked their Red Ale and are pumped to see what's next from these guys.

 The Ladies of Spiderweb Salon had an incredible show at J&J's on Friday evening. They shared stories through a myriad of mediums, and a portion of the proceeds went to the Denton Animal Shelter.  P  hoto by Courtney Marie

 Have you peeked into the construction going on at Lone Star Attitude on the square. The rooftop patio they're building seems to be coming along nicely.

 Seryn played a sold-out show at Dan's. The line to get in was long, but worth it.
