    Hello everybody,

    I currently reside in Texarkana Texas, and I'm debating on moving out to DENTON to attend UNT. Any advice on jobs, best places to hang, and a good lodge?

    I am not sure about the work and other stuff but I do know that Denton has a fairly active Lodge.

    I should prob. give them a call or drop in during a stated meeting. I'm curious to find out about Masons on the UNT campus.

    Thanks Bro. Stewart

    You should definitely swing by Rudy's BBQ while you are there. My wife and I ate at Rudy's all the time when we were at Texas Tech in Lubbock. Now we drive 30 minutes to eat at the one in Denton.

    Brother I haven't been in Denton since the days of Mike Washington (late '70s.)

    Still, seeing that you meet the age requirements I am very much more than certain you will find your footing shortly upon arrival. It's just something folks your age are good about. Something folks my age can only reminis about; if they are lucky.:sneaky2:

    +1! One thing I miss from Austin, easy access to Rudy's. I too drive up to Denton from Ft. Worth just for it.

    Gentlemen, I am a man who loves good barbeque. While in Denton, ensure you stop in at The Smokehouse over on Ft Worth Drive. Its real good.

    I am moving to Denton in the next week or so and also will be attending UNT. I don't know too much about the job situation as I have been working as a Federal employee out in El Paso since about the time I got out of the Army in December 2009, and have pretty much only been looking for Federal jobs in the area (really hard to find and get). I wanted to move to Denton cause it was close to a family member I wanted to be near and also the school, so I gave up on only looking for Federal work and started looking in the private sector. I got a job at a hospital in Grapevine and only got it because my ex GF works there and told me about the position.

    But I can tell you that the Texas Workforce Center there in Denton was really great. I don't know if it was just because I am a veteran or not, but the service and help that I got there was great and would be a useful resource for finding work around there.

    As for where to hang, I think that Fry Street (I think that is how to spell it) is like the main drag of college bars. I went there a couple of weeks ago and it was pretty fun. I am out of the whole bar scene now, so I don't think that I will be spending most of the weeknights there..lol

    While there, I also did go sit with the lodge there in Denton. The Brothers there were more than welcoming and it was quite an experience. It does seem to be a pretty active lodge and there were several younger Masons. Both young in age and length of time involved with Masonry. I do look forward to becoming a member there when I get my move officially done.

    If you got any questions, shoot me a PM.

    Oh, yea. And Rudy's is awesome...lol The first time I ate at a Rudy's was in El Paso and it was really good. As soon as I found out Denton had one, I bought some for my whole family and let them in on that little secret....lol Good luck on your decision!
