Happy Holidays, folks. It’s about that time of year where people are scrambling for last minute gifts, reflecting upon their thankfulness throughout the year, and drinking lots of beer (we hear). There’s lots to do in Denton, including shopping events, beer events, and tuba events. With this kind of an action-packed schedule, why would you ever want to meander to Dallas? We’ve got what you want. We’ve got what you need. Oh baby, oh baby.
Do you know about cool things happening in town? You ought to share those with firstname.lastname@example.org.
