It’s Better Block Weekend, y'all! There are three days of workshops and build days, and then the main event will be held on Saturday from 9AM until 1PM. During which, you’ll see a community come together and build a block of Denton in their own vision. We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this event because it exactly what Denton is, a community coming together and doing something awesome. We predict that it will be a huge success and open up the area for more development and revitalization. Keep in mind, this is a one day only thing, so don't think that you can bike over to Sherman on Monday to check things out. By then, it will be gone. To everyone involved, keep up the good work - your city is behind you, and we can’t wait to see your handy work this Saturday. Want to sign up to help out? GO HERE. Let's get some tasty pics tagged with #WDDI this weekend also. GO GET 'EM, DENTON!

There’s no such thing as a free lunch but there is such a thing as free sandwich samples when the deli gets a menu make-over. There’s rumor of a new sandwich named after a certain “top ten” weeekly local event listing. Hmmm we wonder…
