Fam Friendly #Dentoning Activities 

I have the reputation as that one guy who gives unwanted (yet ingenious) dating advice. But as someone who has spent an inordinate amount of time trying to impress my soon-to-be wife’s parents, I also know a thing or two about planning fun for the whole family. Whether I’m showing my extended family around the […]

Denton Dates: Spend Saturday at the Denton Bridal Show  

I know what you’re thinking: Tyler, as wise and all-knowing as he may be, has gone off the rails this time. However, let’s be clear: I went off the rails a long time ago, because yes, you guessed it, I’m in love. I fell in love in Denton, proposed to my soon-to-be-wife in Denton and, […]

Fantastic Bands and Where to Find Them 

Since my soon-to-be wife and I met and fell in love in Denton, I tried (unsuccessfully) to convince her that our wedding soundtrack should be comprised entirely of Denton bands. Imagine it: an entire wedding soundtrack of Midlake, Brave Combo and Deep Blue Something, taking us all back to the early 2000s. But, for reasons […]

Lights Up, Noises Off: Denton Community Theatre and Music Theatre of Denton Are Merging 

I’ve always been a fan of mergers. Exxon and Mobil. America Online and Time Warner. And who could forget Vodafone and Mannesmann? Inspired by my love of a good merger — and an exciting local merger, as well — I have crafted a compelling play sure to thrill all lovers of mergers. We now interrupt […]

Denton Dates: Keep it Classic

It’s me again: Denton’s Love Guru. Self-appointed titles aside, I’d like to think I’ve become something of a Denton dating expert. I know the ins and outs of all the romantic locales, and thanks to your feedback, I know what your better halves have loved and, well, loved a little less. Sometimes it’s best to […]

Beat the Heat: Cool Dentoning Activities for Your Summer “To Do” List

I’m a terrible Texan. My family jokes that I was separated from a Coloradan family at birth, and it’s not hard to see why: I don’t own any boots, I won’t be caught dead at the State Fair of Texas (but you can bring me some funnel cake) and I shy away from the heat […]

Off the Eaten Path: Caffeinated Denton

You didn’t think we were done, did you? Sure, I covered Asian cuisine and bountiful breakfasts, but no series on food and drink would be complete without the nectar of the gods: coffee. As an avid coffee drinker, I’m familiar with the ins and outs of coffee creation. You get your pod, your Keurig, some […]

Denton Dates: Make Memories This Memorial Day

I love holidays. My favorites, in no particular order, are Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Administrative Assistants’ Day and National Turkey Lovers’ Day (not Thanksgiving; it’s a day for just turkey, and it’s coming up!). I love the pageantry, the festivities, and best of all, I love the paid holiday off. While I’m still working on making […]

THIN LINE: Picture Perfect

My first time in Denton, I was enraptured by something magisterial, epic and downright artful: The garlic parm fries at LSA. But shortly after that, I took a jaunt down to the Square. Once there, I explored the ins, outs, nooks and crannies of downtown Denton, a place I would soon call home. I took […]

Celebrate the Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum as it Turns 40

The Square means a lot to me. It’s the first place I visited in Denton. It’s the place where I got engaged. And, most importantly, it’s the place where I go for my mandatory, doctor-recommended mountain of garlic parmesan fries at LSA Burger. But the Square is home to much more than health food. It’s […]
