If you're into fake injuries and not knowing exactly when the game ends, then the next month of World Cup Soccer is going to be your cup of tea. Several of our favorite spots are hosting "Watch Parties," so maybe this every-four-year tradition of trying to like a sport will be bearable with the right mix of mixed drinks and company. I guess you could say that about anything. Other highlights of this week are the DMSA Mixer this evening and the Denton County Fruit, Vegetable, Herb and Flower Show. Be sure to let us know how you feel about how we feel about soccer in the comments section and remember to tag your photos of your friends pretending to enjoy themselves watching the matches with #WDDI.
