Glen is in California for "work" and is apparently "too busy having fun" to care about the rest of us back here in Denton and the events that we should be checking out. Did you know that Glen has a bidet in his home? I wonder if he misses it while he's away on the west coast. Anyway, we've got plenty of events for ya this week. Ten of 'em, in fact. There are a few art-y events, some live music, and plenty of opportunities for you to be well-prepared for Valentine's Day next Tuesday. Heck, you can even stop by Backyard on Bell for some pre-Valentine's slow dancing this weekend.
Read on to find out our ten favorite events happening in Denton, TX over the next seven days.
