The upside to all the freezing cold weather is that the dang mosquitoes are deader’n Dillinger, but still doesn’t mean we Dentonites like it too much. Luckily, the weekend is bringing warmer temps so here’s a look at our top #DEN10 events to check out as you’re out and about.
THURSDAY, January 18
Richard Gilbert “Daybreak” Release | GDAC | 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
This Denton bard is a regular on the local music circuit, and the debut of his new EP will be showcased with a 45 minute live set! Thursdays are always poppin’ with Glitterbomb at Andy’s, a bicycle ride at Eastside, or jazz at Steve’s Wine Bar, so keep moving to stay warm.
LGBTQ+ Social Hour | Harvest House | 9:00 PM - 11:59 PM
OUTreach Denton hosts their first adult social hour of 2018 as university students return, so start the new year off with good company and good drinks.

SATURDAY, January 20
Women’s March Reunion | Denton County Courthouse Lawn | 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
We love us some Saturday Jazz Brunch at The Chestnut Tree after some Yoga On The Square, but it’s also the Women’s March Reunion on the Downtown Square so expect crowds! Afterwards in the afternoon, there’s a Classic Chevy meet-n-greet down the strip at Mr. Frosty’s ‘til 3pm!
Building Bridges Community Event | Patterson-Appleton Arts Center | 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Fuzzy’s Taco 10th Anniversary Party | Dan’s SilverLeaf | 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
El Nuevo Mi Son is rockin’ the house for this anniversary blowout, where the Fuzzys folks are raffling a Big Green Egg while salsa dancing.
Spiderweb Salon’s 2018 Winter Formal | Dan’s SilverLeaf | 7:00 PM - 1:00 AM
Promising a magical night of performance, poetry, music, art, film, friendship, dancing, and so much more, this 80s throwback thowdown will be serving up a prom night theme. We’re betting there will be a LOT of big hair.

Bluegrass Brunch | Dan’s Silver Leaf | 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Get your funnybone tickled by Joey Johnson, Brad McKenzie, Taylor Higginbotham, Tony Cassillas, and Kenny Severson at this Thin Line Film Fest fundraiser, with a prize raffle thrown in as a bonus. Get there early for some with Pamfood and the Boxcar Bandits!
Eastside vs Jupiter House Tug-of-War | East Side | 4:00 PM – 12:00 AM
What better way to support our favorite Jupiter House baristas during this unfortunate time after the fire, than to cheer them on during a good old-fashioned game of Tug of War! Outrageous outfits, smacktalk, and a live DJ to MC the epic contest!
TUESDAY, January 23
Nerd Nite 22 | Bearded Monk | 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
