Video Features in the Works For First Friday Denton

Video Features in the Works For First Friday Denton

First Friday Denton is going to feature one business with a video interview, with the first one to be published for First Friday October (the next First Friday). If you would like your business and special First Friday events to be featured, please contact us and let us know what you will be doing for October First Friday Denton, and we will respond.

These will be “news-like” interviews, video, microphones – the works, so be prepared to be on camera for the whole First Friday Denton world to see. If there’s an “overwhelming” response, we could see if we can fit in more than one “Feature.” That shouldn’t be too difficult.

First Friday Denton will be out and about with video and still photography this First Friday, so send in those blurbs if there are any still out there.

The next First Friday Denton is (at the very least) a “double-whammy” – a First Friday that is part of an official holiday weekend. It is a special opportunity for people who may not ordinarily think of Denton as a destination to get away from wherever they are and head to Denton for a three day weekend.

If you are a First Friday Denton participant, and are making special plans for the next First Friday Denton, or are planning your own vacation for that time – please let us know so that we can send the masses of fresh fall faces to those locations that will be open for the next First Friday on September 3rd.

We are constantly collecting photography from locations involved with First Friday Denton, and if you want your photographs included be sure to send them in .jpg format and tell us who took the photograph and who / what the photograph is of (a cutline).

Below are two recent images sent in from the cellar 22.

The Cellar 22

Be sure to check out The Cellar 22 at their hip new location 219 E. Hickory in Denton, Texas! We just received a note from Amanda, and here’s what she had to say:

We have a wine by the glass menu and a food menu. The glasses of wine vary in price from $5.00 – $12.00. The food on the menu now consists of sandwiches, cheese plates, chips and dips, and salads. We are adding to the menu on a regular basis, so keep looking for new items coming soon. If you would like to drink wine that is not on our menu, you are more than welcome to purchase the bottle and drink it here. If you choose to drink the bottle in our wonderful cellar, we will add $5.00 to the cost of the bottle. As always, if you don’t finish the bottle, you can put the cork in it and take it home.

We are so very excited about our new location and we know you will be too once you come check it out! Please follow me on facebook under “cellar twentytwo” so I can keep everyone informed on what is going on at the store!

I can’t wait to see all of you at the cellar!!!!
Thank you so much for all of your patience,

Reminder to Remind US!

Reminder to Remind US!

We are pretty sure a couple of businesses and / or special interests have not yet made it onto the blogroll (links) and map yet. As things start getting more important for you and the First Friday Denton Fall 2010 events edge nearer, we would ask that anyone who has submitted their business or interest – and does not see it showing up on the site – please take the time during August to bring it to our attention (once again).

I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but once the ball gets rolling for the holiday season, we will all be concentrating on other things, so now is the time.

Amyx Fine Jewelry & A Creative Art STUDIO

Amyx Fine Jewelry, located just off the Square at 222 W. Hickory Street, Suite 101 would like to announce their Second Annual Sterling Silver Catalog Auction Event.

For more information, including an online catalog and a detailed explanation of this unique event, please visit our website: AmyxFineJewelry.com.


A Creative Art STUDIO

Come enjoy Art and Music at First Friday Denton at A Creative Art STUDIO. Last week we finished hanging our new art show and have added over eight artists to our gallery so we hope there is something for everyone. We are excited to have Gregory Conlin, courtroom sketch artist, doing portraits from 5:00-9:00. At our recent art show Gregory was such a success we are asking him back. The 16×20 portrait sketch requires a sitting of about 30 minutes and if you rather, you can call the studio and set up an appointment. If you don’t get your portrait done, you can watch him create his masterpieces. From 7 – 9 pm we are very pleased to announce that Simone Nicole will be performing in the studio. Simone is a singer-songwriter and guitar player from the DFW area who you don’t want to miss. Her music genre can be described as a combination of pop, blues and a little alternative. Join us for a wonderful evening of music, art and friends.
