Rock Lottery 12 was another well-attended event this past weekend. AV the Great (pictured above), a local rapper, fronted a rather eclectic group of musicians (the best kind of Rock Lottery group) that called themselves The Trill.
"The" Moist was the band that we most hoped would create some sort of an ongoing collaboration, however, we're not sure how keen the Dallas Cowboys drumline was on it.

We all voted early. Did you? If not, Tuesday's the day. The Denton ISD bond proposal makes up the crux of it. If you aren't sure what that entails, they have a good rundown here. There's also a Facebook group that is encouraging folks to know that is okay to vote no on the election.
The very first dial tone phone call in Denton was made on this phone from Mayor Mark Hannah to his wife. No joke. We used it to prank call our friend Tommy.
Michelle Bradley likes the fact that Viet Bites is BYOB. What wine goes best with banh mi and shrimp chips?
Royal Grub had a launch party for their salsas. Sara Button dug it.
Alphonso might be our new favorite bartender at Paschall's. This "Older Fashioned" he elegantly prepared for us was so beautiful it was hard to bring ourselves to drink it.
We tried the new gourmet grilled cheeses at Shiitake Swerve. The order may have taken a little while to arrive, but it was delivered to us inside of Oak St. Drafthouse and worth the wait. We tried both "The Swerve" and "The Decadent." Both were perfectly crunchy on the outside and the cheeses on the inside were a great mix of salty and sweet - no soup needed for dipping.
