Summertime shenanigans are afoot, Denton, and these top picks for your weekly events calendar have something for everyone: Art, music, or watching people madly shove hot dogs down their throats. If’n you’re looking for other ways to spend these dog days before the July 4th fun, you can revisit our top picks for “Denton Summertime Fun” or “Kid Camps” and maybe these “Denton Podcasts” to pass time in your air-conditioned cubicle or during that dang long I-35 drive. Don't forget to hashtag your hashtags with the hashtag #WDDI and you might just be part of our Monday's post: WHAT WE DID.
