Happy Friday! 

Though temperatures in the 70s made it feel like summer in Denver this week, we're in full holiday season mode over here at Flea HQ! Our days were filled with planning pow-wows and cooking up fun surprises for the Holiday Flea (mark your calendar, it's happening December 1-3!) - but we still managed to venture out for a few of the incredible Harvest Week dinners, a drink or two at Bar Fausto's happy hour, and a stop at ATC DEN Gallery's newest exhibit opening. This weekend, we're excited to soak up a bit more of that Colorado sun, while also celebrating a cousin's wedding and visiting some friends in Colorado Springs. What are your plans? 

Sending you off to the weekend with a few links and things we're loving this week: 

If you ate up 5280's 2017 list of the 25 Best Restaurants like we did, you're in luck - all of the featured eateries will gather at 5280 Dines, offering small bites alongside craft cocktails and live music, this Sunday from 6-9 p.m. at Backyard on Blake. Grab your tickets while you still can! 

The Orionoid Meteor Shower is peakin' this weekend, giving you a great excuse to cancel your weekend plans, pack up and head up to the mountains. 

Whether you're into astrology or not, you'll find something sweet about these October horoscopes paired with Halloween candies.

Two new night-on-the-town ideas courtesy of Cook Street, one of Denver's top cooking schools: Bites n' Brews = cook dishes made with beer AND enjoy beer tastings, or Culinary Date Night = prepare seasonal dishes AND sip on specialty wine pairings. 

We're stoked to have Great Divide as our Denver Flea beer sponsor and this week, we tried (and loved) their latest, the Chai Yeti. Do yourself a favor and visit one of their two Mile High locations to grab a pint ASAP. 

Jo took a quick trip to NYC last week, where she snagged this awesome jacket

Celebrate girl power this weekend at TARRA 2017, a two-day event happening this weekend in Denver all about women, ideas, and innovation. 

We're big fans of LOW Country Kitchen in LoHi, where Amy's fave order is the bucket of the fried chicken and a side of hush puppies.

Devon's planning to join the charge to #bakeamericacakeagain with this pumpkin cake

Battling lingering colds like a few of us are? Try this "cold elixir" from the fantastic Small Victories cookbook to drink those sniffles away.
