WHAT WE DID: MAY 27th

...aaaaand the long (much needed) weekend is done. We hope y'all had an awesome Memorial Day. We sure did. It seems as if we all needed a relaxing weekend. We think that Denton truly does the three-day weekend justice. Y'all know how to party and play like pros whether it be catching some live music, being outdoors or eating way way too much chili. 

Keep on taggin' those pics and 'grams with #wddi to make it to next week's round up of snapshots.

  @orangerageous  enjoyed a local ale and skinny dip on his three-day weekend. This looks like a public pool, though, so maybe make that dip a bit less skinny.

CHILI COOKOFF

Local brews, hand crafted cocktails, Hares on the Mountain and loads of sunscreen were all a part of the annual Golden Jesus: Chili Cook Off, which has been a Denton mainstay since 2004. Dozens of people gathered to hang out, eat some fine chili and day drink. The photos above were taken by local photographer extraordinaire (and friend of the blog), Shaina Sheaff, whom we interviewed last December

 @besely spotted (or created - we're not sure) a little beer-ful artwork at East Side. While we're on the subject, who has the best table graffitti in town?

  @pattythedoxie  caught a snap of that double rainbow from Sunday evening that had Instagram all a-twitter. No one asked, "What does it mean?" though, so that was nice.

 Taco porn courtsey of  @shainasheaffphoto  has us drooling. Maybe we should do an "all taco" What We Did. Maybe Cinco De Mayo was the week to do that. Oh well.
