WHAT WE DID: SEPTEMBER 3RD

This weekend was a strange one. While for many college freshman, they had their first full weekend of hanging out in Denton. They had their choice to hit up the UNT football game (which people were tailgating for hours beforehand) or to hit up one of the many businesses that opened up during the month of August. Those that read the paper, however, were were met with an onslaught of horrible news stories around Denton County that just didn't seem to stop pouring in.

We got around quite a bit, ourselves, hitting up the newly opened Shift Coffee and More Fun Games, in addition to some tried and true activities. Look below to check out photos from us and our readers and to get some in depth commentary on what we got to check out.

 The location and exterior of Shift Coffee leave a little to be desired, but we've tried to have an open attitude in regards to location ever since the Better Block meeting and were very pleasantly surprised by what we found inside.

 Reader Sarah Adams (@SarahAnneAdams) shared her Mean Green Pride with us. Did any of y'all go out there early to enjoy some tailgating?

 We had heard rumors that the hiring of a new sushi chef at Denton-institution, Mr. Chopsticks, had revitalized the cold fish scene. We checked it out for the first time in a long time and weren't disappointed.
