WHAT WE DID: AUGUST 26th

We spent our weekend cramming in as much fun as possible and avoiding 288 as we got ready for the burgeoning new school year. New students made their way into town and we saw plenty of them biking/walking around exploring Denton (read: there was a line at the grocery store again). We did more than just eat tasty treats, though. We caught a few shows, took a ride down to the 'burbs on the A-Train and enjoyed the last few hours of summer freedom. 

Share your weekend pics with us by tagging them with #WDDI on your tweets and 'grams and you may see a few of your photos posted here next week. 

 

We hopped on the A Train this weekend to meet friends down in Carrollton - we loved the stress free ride as we skipped out on the traffic. When was the last time you took the A Train?

The house show scene in Denton is still going strong as was evident by the three day long Blotto Fest this past weekend. Here's a shot of Brooks Willhoite from Mountain of Smoke playing the small room from this past Saturday.

We attended the Better Block: Denton meeting and were proponents of using this nice, little stretch of McKinney across the street from the post office as the area to improve. We think it has potential. What do you think?

Apparently, we eat a lot for you guys. Maybe it's because we love food. Maybe because we think you should know where the good food is. Either way, we tried out Bagheri's for the first time in a long time - and we weren't disappointed one bit. We recommend the lobster ravioli. Really, trust us.

As part of an upcoming feature on restaurants right outside of the Denton city limits, we ate at Mom's on Main in Aubrey, TX and were pretty full after a couple of gut bombs like what you see in the picture above.

For an entirely different upcoming feature, we purchased a few bags of beans from Seven Mile and their new coffee roaster and had ourselves a couple of tastings. Oh, the things we do for you people.

Falafel, dolmas, hummus and tabouli graced our table at the Green Zatar as we managed to make our way down Sunset for a bite to eat after the Better Block meeting to discuss neighborhoods with potential.

Breakfast of champions - Joey's cinnamon rolls at Royal's Bagels. Perfect for kicking off a Saturday morning.

We admired the new signage at East Side Social Club. We're ready to try out the whiskey selection when they open next month.

Irish Boozer (on S. Elm next to Last Drop Tavern) is open, y'all. We went over to see what they've got on tap and were pretty happy with what we found.

Don't worry guys. We went ahead and tried out Irish Boozer's signature dish - a pair of their Rusty Nuts. They didn't disappoint, either. We highly recommend that you head over and check 'em out.
