DBC: What's open, what's closed

We've got more barbecue, y'all. Bumbershoot Barbecue is now open in Argyle, behind Earl's 377 Pizza. The little trailer opens at 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and stays open until sellout. There are  plenty of picnic tables right outside the trailer to get your grub on food truck park-style.

There's only a few more days Denton residents can get their homemade candy fix from The Candy Store on West Oak Street. The store owners are retiring, effective April 29, and have leased out the shop space to a vape shop.

Through some testy moments between developers and City Council, we've confirmed that Rooms to Go and Alamo Drafthouse are coming to Denton soon. Both projects are in process with city planning and should be open by July 2018. 

After years in Argyle, Veracity Research Company Investigations moved to the Woodhill Square complex located at 1100 Dallas Drive in Denton.

More breakfast, please. The Egg House Cafe is now open at 1622 W. University Drive. The spot is run by the family behind Luigi's, and open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The opening of the Monroe-Pearson building might be a year away, but the wedding and events venue can be booked now for any date after April 1, 2018. The 21,000-square-foot space on East Oak  was once a grocery warehouse, and most recently was left totally vacant. Once it opens, it will be the only private events venue downtown.

Yes, Carol's Custom Draperies moved from the Square, but it's right down the road. They are now up and running at 535 S. Locust St. The company's former space, 112 W. Oak St., is under renovation by Scott Brown Properties and up for lease now.
