WHAT WE DID: SEPTEMBER 9TH

First Friday is starting to become a Denton favorite around these parts. It ranks up there with Twilight Tunes as far as consistent fun goes. We hit up several different places in and around the square that were participating in First Friday - there were more things to check out than we had time to see! We hope to see a few more businesses taking part in this monthly celebration. Aside from that, we also had the pleasure of seeing some live music and enjoyed being our normal, fat selves, cramming food into our gullets. Check out some photos from our aforementioned exploits below and make sure to throw #WDDI on your pics for inclusion in our weekly photo roundup!

The last of us finally tried Goldmine BBQ and were sadly left with the same impression others have had. Above is the "burnt ends" appetizer. Not only did they have the visual appeal of dog food (covered in a syrupy sweet sauce, even), but they weren't even actually burnt ends. The rest of the meal followed suit. Maybe things will turn around soon. We hope so.

First Friday seems to be building up some steam. Scrap and The DIME Store both had free beer, UNT had a wonderful display of Denton photos (look below), and lots of folks were out, milling about. Above you can see the crew behind Denton's Ugly Rugger brewing Company set up sharing their suds at DIME.

We caught Chambers at St. David's on a busy Friday evening. We're hopeful that we'll be seeing more shows at this beautiful building soon.

DIME also had free crafts for First Friday attendees. We tried our hand at embroidery.

Paschall bar hosted a listening party for Midlake's upcoming album. We checked it out and were pleased with what we heard.

We found out that our breakfast taco dealers, La Estrella, serve some delicious menudo on Saturdays and Sundays. We suggest grabbing a bowl next weekend.

The "Photographs of Denton" exhibit at UNT on the Square features the work of many photographers and their viewpoints of Denton. We highly suggest checking it out. Heck, it is free, afterall.

While we haven't been inside in a while (sorry, Mike). The exterior of El Guapo's caught one reader's eye on their way down to DIME for First Friday last week. It's a great walk from the square, if you haven't tried it yet.

We had reason to head south on the train this weekend to check out Delta Spirit as part of Untapped. It made us all the more anticipated for Canned, which will be here before you know it.
