Denton Staycation

Hey friends!

I'm back from my blogging hiatus just in time to tell you about the fantastic staycation I had in Denton a few weekends ago.

First, let me just tell you about the Airbnb we got to stay in.

Y'all, this place was beautiful. With huge entertaining spaces, including an upstairs loft featuring a pool table and arcade game, it's an ideal place to bring the gang for a weekend getaway. Not to forget, the neighbors own some goats that like to spend time in the front yard. The house sleeps about 7 people, and if you count the detached house you can fit 2 more!

With all this space to entertain, don't forget to bring some fun along with you.
Our choice? We pulled out Cards Against Humanity and had our in-house bartender hook us up with some cocktails. Huge shout-out to Southwest Spirits & Wine for providing the liquor that got our staycation off on the right foot!

After spending some quality time at the house, 
it was time to make our way to the heart of Denton, the square

Paschall's Bar may be one of the coolest places I've seen in Denton. A speakeasy - you likely will miss the door the first time you make a visit. Located up a steep staircase on the east side of the square, this bar offers a plethora of creative cocktails that will cater to any taste. 
If you followed my instastory from this night, you'd have seen the vast array of drinks their bartenders can create. I wish I could have photos to show you here, but the lighting was just so dim the photos did not do it justice. Guess that means you'll have to check it out for yourself!

After Paschall's I spent my first night on Fry Street. This strip of bars is where you'll find all the local students who attend UNT which means one thing - it's a mad house! If you're looking to get some cheap drinks and dance all night, you oughta head out there.
I, on the other hand, got tired quick and was ready to spend some time at Echo House and go to bed. 
Before you judge, it's best I got some quality sleep considering I spent the entire next day eating.

To ease our hangover, we were treated to brunch at Barley & Board.

Mimosa Flight
I've been known to rant and rave about Barley & Board, but truly I'm never disappointed (or hungry) when I leave. On this morning, we started with their Mimosa Flight. I like to say it's a healthy choice since all the syrups/juices are fresh - ha!
Of the flavors available, strawberry mint and hibiscus were my favorites.

Blue Cheese Potato Chips
Truffled Portobello Fries

This is one kick-ass burger, y'all.
A hearty serving of meat and cheese, it's sure to revive you after a long night out on the town. 

Not pictured is Aunt Mary Ellen's Sweet Potato Bread that I'm truly confident should be considered dessert. Promise, that's a compliment. Get it to share for the table or keep it for yourself, this bread is one of a kind and will cure that sweet tooth.

Brazen Two-Faced Quail & Hangtown Frittata
Fresh Cookies & Milk
After our visit at Barley & Board, it was time to pack our things and head home.

Oh, but just you wait, there's more!
On the way home from our Denton takeover, we were treated to some cool local restaurants just outside of Denton, in a town called Argyle.

First stop, Bumbershoot!

No indoor seating here. This is some real deal Texas barbecue. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Bumbershoot is phenomenal and here's why - when they sell out for the day, that's it, no more. And honestly, I believe that's how it should be. It let's me know that they wont skimp on quality just to serve the masses. They give a hoot about the meat they serve and that's evident in how flavorful and tender every dish was. And when I say every dish...
I think we tried just about every dang thing on the menu.
Plus, what are friends for if not to pick off of each other's plates?

Loaded Tots & Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

 Hello spaghetti-o! 
After stuffing our faces with BBQ we strolled across the street to Earls 377. Founded by Isabella and Earl, this pizza joint features authentic family recipes in what was once an old fire station.
If you know me, these are two of my favorite things (because carbs, duh) and simply - if I like your pizza without cheese, it must be damn good. And just look at that pasta to sauce ratio. Hit their patio and enjoy an afternoon of great food.

Moral of this story?
Head outside the Dallas zip code and you will not be disappointed. 

We had a blast exploring Denton, and I can't wait to make a trip back out to see even more!
