Sweaters, beards, pipes, and movies on the lawn. Yes indeed, Fall is in full swing and we're making the most of it. As always, below is a small, curated list of ways to get out there and enjoy yourself. The highlight of the week is obviously the movie on the courthouse lawn we’re hosting, but we also love self-promotion so don't ignore all the other awesome stuff that's going on.

We live in a great city for jazz. We should probably all take better advantage of that fact.

MOVIE ON THE LAWN: Moonrise Kingdom | Downtown Courthouse Lawn | 8PM | FREE
Bring a blanket, grab a picnic setup from Chestnut Tree, a bottle of wine from Wine Squared and settle in for this classic Wes Anderson film courtesy of Cross Timbers Church, Collage and We Denton Do It. Get there early, meet your neighbors, grab a good spot, and have a great time. These are your instructions. This time we’ll be on the east side of the lawn due to the trees being weighed down with pecans and in the sight line.
We’re Back: Music & Art Showcase | Innovation Greenhouse UNT | 4PM - 9PM
Another series of music, food, art and fun and a pretty impressive local lineup of Space Goose, Biographies and Diamond Kings among others.

Mooney Manor IX: Cotterpalooza w/ Dome Dwellers / Biographies / The Orcanaut / The Hymens / Trai Bo | Mooney Manor / 425 Robertson St | 9PM
It’s Chris Cotter’s 21st birthday so we’re guessing this one is going to be wheels off. Kiss him on the lips, this guy has been fighting the good fight for the DIY music scene and deserves a great partay.
