First Friday Denton Edition

image

One of my favorite small towns ever (& the best in America) we host a first Friday art-tastic event each month. Pictured above is the shops participating on W Oak. If you stop by SCRAP they’ll have samples of Armadillo Ale works, Denton’s own micro brews. Get free sangria & nibble sized square delectables at Denton Square Donuts upstairs & peruse art while listening to live must at Creative Art Studio. Walk the square, open late, for all Christmas goodies & cheer! Don’t forget to Shop Small this season!

Food Truckin’ Lovin’s

So apparently food trucks are a big deal. They even have their own version of a Food Network War show. I even blogged my first visit here:
But as my screenshot shows, Denton too loves their food trucks, so much so that they’re having a party!

Then Dallas News decides to help in the promotion. http://www.nbcdfw.com/video/#!/the-scene/events/Denton-Throws-Food-Truck-Festival/175878041 So, obviously you too should come eat it too. Oh, and did I mention you could ride in on the DCTA A Train & that is where the party’s at? Yup. Hop to it!

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!

D-A-N-C-I-N-G

But if you feel your skills don’t match the couple above, you can always use the internet to get some special training. Ever wondered what is a shim-sham? The lesson not long enough for practicing your lindy hop? Want to snuggle up with a beau for the balboa? You can visit youtube sites for Dallas/Ft. Worth/Denton swing clubs or www.freeswingdancelessons.com
