WHAT WE DID: SEPTEMBER 7TH

Okay, the weather folks are whispering about rain and cold fronts later this week. We're hoping that writing about it won't jinx it 'cause we could sure go for some sub-90 temps right about now. Grilling steaks on Labor Day weekend when the thermometer is buzzing around 100 ain't too fun. Anyway, here's a day late What We Did (it isn't a dollar short, though). We took Labor Day off to eat some baked dough with cheese at Pizza Snob. 

What We Did is our weekly roundup of photos that WDDI staff and readers have taken over the past seven days. We've got 21 of our favorite images from the past week in Denton, TX below. In this group, we've got plenty of scenes from our pool party at the Civic Center Pool, new restaurants, live music, and some beautiful pizza shots. 

If you'd like to be included in What We Did, tag your images with #WDDI on Instagram, and check back here next Monday. As always, we're limited in the photos we can post, but we encourage you to search the hashtag #WDDI and check out all of the other awesome photos that we were unable to include this week. Click the images below to be led back to the photographer's Instagram page. Have a great week!

We held a pool party at Denton's Civic Center Pool on Friday evening to raise money for the Denton Parks Foundation. This was the last year for the pool's diving board (the place is getting renovated), so we decided to give it a massive blow out with a cannonball competition. If we're being honest, we weren't paying that much attention to the scores (sorry Kevin and Jessica), but we're pretty sure Owen Nichelson won.

Keiichi got a new sign, y'all. @veeveemarie even shot it with some sunshine. The marquee is still the same, though, so they won't stop being your favorite "_p_anese" restaurant for the time being.

@940skc has the current most-Instagramed spot in Denton and it is right beside their restrooms, which also happen to be beautiful. We stopped by this weekend at their Late Night Launch to try a few cocktails and some shared plates and were very impressed. @andyo7 seemed to be, as well.

Hypnotic Donuts and Cultivar Coffee (Denton) turned 1 last week. They celebrated with complimentary mimosas because that's the best way to celebrate most things. Now if we could just extend their hours again... @monimonmon28

@taylorbunch_ and crew hitched a ride from Jason Upshaw and his Wandervan last week. Did you get a chance to read our interview with him in which he compares his job to an HBO show. Betcha can't guess which one (hint: it isn't The Wire).

We packed our tummies full of pizza at Pizza Snob on Labor Day. We'll have some more pics and thoughts up from our visit later this week, but in the meantime, dig on this baked potato pizza.
