A light lit Night


May your Christmas be merry & bright! Take the time to look at lights in your neighborhood. Gather the roommates, kids, or other pajamas clad individuals (that you know) & drive through some colorful & sparkly streets. Take cocoa, popcorn, something & jam to your holiday music. Its a good, good, thing.

Great Outdoors: Parking It in The Grass


In most places Spring is still sprung. Sadly in Texas we’ve already crossed into dangerous territory called summer. So here in the South West (because Texans don’t call themselves Southerners) we folks are migrating either indoors for expensively cool activities, towards large bodies of water,  or towards hours of the day most call dawn & dusk.

So here’s a question for y’all who have 4 seasons each year:
What is your favorite activity/game you play in the grass during warmer months?

Free! Free! Free! (Concerts all weekend long!)

If you’re curious as to what I’m talking about then you might not be from the Dallas area. The largest free music festival I know of (Part of 35 Denton costs) hosted in a large city park with multiple venues at once is once again this weekend!
Starting Friday the Denton Arts & Jazz Festival unravels a slewof activities, booths, games, food, artists, sculptures, & of course musicians! The only thing not allowed sadly is Fido, so please leave Fido, Fluffy, & Mr. Tiddlywinks in your a/c’d house. Their festival is around the corner in June at the Dog Days of Denton.


Live near Dart trains? Buy a regional pass & sail on up here, get off on the last DCTA stop & walk 3 blocks (or hop a bus if they’re running). Located in Quakertown Park, it’s snuggled up behind the City Hall, Senior Citizen Center, City Pool & Community City on Bell/McKinney intersection. Parking is limited so get there early or prepare for neighborhood parking options! If you need a new rug, a garden doodad, unique coffee coasters or just a finishing piece for your art collection you’ll find it here. It is a Mecca to the musically inclined & artsy alike. Kids can bang on real drums & not your good pots & pans at a kid’s magic booth (the magic being that it wears your kids out!) Or stop by a sizzling food booth spouting local cuisine. You’ll find something for everyone because two buildings filled with woodwork, grandma’s quilts, charcoal sketches done on site, framed pictures of velvet Elvis, fairy fantasies, natural nature or microwaveable potato socks meets even the pickiest gift shopper. Bring your cash & card & prepare to complete your Christmas shopping in advance!

Headliners are as follows:

Lee Ritenour Friday 9:00 Jazz Stage

Los Lonely Boys Saturday 9:00 Jazz Stage

Brave Combo Sunday 7:00 Jazz Stage

Honorable Mention: Denton Hand bell Choir Preforms Sunday at 1. This group of adults are a joy to hear & they use their talents to make many others happy in nursing homes & more. Please look them up while you’re there!

Getting down to the nitty gritty


This weekend Denton will be hosting a city wide clean up in partnership with the Great American Cleanup.
Sign ups are Saturday at 0800 at the Denton Civic Center (321 E McKinney St). After a morning of scrubbing everyone will reconvene at the Civic Center for fun & free lunch. Last year 4 tons of waste was collected from Denton alone.

The Bulb eater: recycles fluorescent bulbs of all sizes, eyeglasses & cellphones.

The city landfill is offering free dumping for residents from 0700-1200 but freon appliances will be 50$ & monitors/televisions are 15$.

If you’re not in Denton please check in your local area for doing your part in keeping America beautiful.
