The Denton Community Market has seriously got something for everyone because literally everyone in town shows up at this thing. It’s ridiculous and this Saturday is shaping up to be ridiculous with a dash of “fling” if you know what we’re saying. Kiddos gone wild.

We Denton Do It Presents: Candidate Debate 2017 | Dan’s Silver Leaf | 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
There is a campaign raging across the city as candidates battle for 3 open seats on our city council. This debate comes the week before early voting and is arguably the most important, in depth look at how the candidates will operate under the extreme stress and scrutiny of the office they are competing for. Our favorite attorney, Jill Jester will mercilessly grill the candidates collectively for over an hour until one of them cracks on stage at our favorite public house, Dan’s Silver Leaf. OK, it’s not going to be that intense, but a great discussion over the future direction and vision for Denton will be the the topic and you don’t want to miss the possible fireworks.
