THE DEN10: MAY 21st

Glen Farris

Memorial Day is the official kick-off to the best Summer of your life. It’s wrought with possibility, new friends, new adventures, trips to the beach, sailboats, and “mussel Mondays.” It’s the perfect time to get out there, judge a chili cook off, play some baseball, and meet your new BFF’s. There's plenty of stuff going on. Go do something before it's 110 outside. Make sure to #WDDI the good ones.

Have y'all made it out to Twilight Tunes yet? We're a month in to this year's season and it's been a blast every time.

The weather is perfect for this right now and the glaring sun tucks behind the Texas Building a little after seven.
