Things to Do! 9/8/16 – 9/15/16

Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day weekend. There’s a lot of good stuff coming up this week and in the next several, lower temps and autumn means some of my favorite things to do all year.

I wanted to let you all know that Kwest, the city exploration app that brought us Kwestival, is about to launch on Android. So far there are Kwests for Denton, Grapevine, Bishop Arts, Uptown, and the Zoo. For a limited time, the Kwests are free to celebrate the Android launch. I’m not sure of the exact date on that, but keep an eye out for it.

As always, if you know about an event I’ve missed please feel free to comment below with the details. If its for this week, that’s the best way to make sure people see it. You are always welcome to PM me info about upcoming events, but I don’t want to miss something and see it the next day when its too late.

Don’t forget to check The Kid List for Kid Friendly events, or the Ongoing Events page for long term things like plays and museum exhibits.

You can also watch me chat on Fridays at 12.30pm with Rich & Co on The Mid Day Show about my favorites for the week.
