WHAT WE DID: JULY 14th

The "Polar Vortex" is supposed to be back this week and cool things down a bit. We couldn't be happier. Once those 100+ degree temps reared their ugly heads, it almost had us melting. We forget how hot Denton summers are until they actually show up. Oh, well. At least sno-cones exist, right? 

Below are a bunch of photos that have been tagged with #WDDI on Instagram and the like. Some are from y'all and some are from us. They all show what life has been like in Denton over the past seven days. Click on the photos, themselves, to be linked back to the respective accounts of the original posters. Don't forget to tag your Denton-related photos with #WDDI over the course of this week to be included in next Monday's What We Did

West Oak Coffee Bar got some sweet art added to the front and side. The work was done by local artist Dan Black. We actually got a chance to go behind the wood and scope out the space. We'll have more info on that later. Until then, check out this cool pic from @brefkast.

The hand-drawn phalluses (that's the plural - we checked) at Eastside and Oak St. Drafthouse are better than any placemat you may have at home. We wonder which table has the most... Photo by Sara Button.
