Happy FridaY! 

It's been an exciting week here at Flea HQ, as we "officially" launched into Summer Flea mode - and shared that #newnew news of our "Talking Heads & Tacos" party that will kick off the Fleakin' weekend. Head here to get more details on all the fun Summer Flea is bringing to Rock Drill July 13-15, and be sure to buy your tix ASAP cause #FleaMustBeThePlace. 

And though we've been riding that Summer Flea high, it's also been a sad week with the passings of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, two notable people whom our team greatly admired. Our thoughts are with their respective family and friends. We'll be raising a glass to each of their memories and loving just a little bit harder this weekend. If you or loved one needs to talk to someone, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (TALK). 

And with that, here's a list of some things we've been likin', lovin' and celebratin' as of late: 

In MORE exciting news from the Flea crew - Blake's going to be a dad this winter! His first baby purchase? Nike Little Max '95s, obviously. 

If one of your 2018 resolutions was to "be more cultural," you can join the MCA Denver’s Broke Heart Club for $1.95 a month and get membership pricing for all events AND get into the museum free whenever. 

It's farmers market season here in Colorado (finally!) and it's safe to say we're pretty stoked about it. Devon checked out the Union Station Farmers Market last weekend and highly suggests stopping at the booths of Flea faves The PB Love Co, The Long I Pie Shop and Hinman's Bakery; trying the A+ salad dressings from new-to-Summer-Flea vendor Bloombox Foods; and picking up a bagel with lox from Stoic and Genuine's tent.

Itching to learn a new language? Megan clued us into Duolingo, a free app that can help you do just this - which makes for perfect listening for Sloans Lake walks this summer.

The Way Back on Tennyson introduced brunch last week and it's pretty awesome. Fried chicken and biscuits, a stellar okonomiyaki with pork belly, great cocktails and - funnel cake. Make your rezzies stat. 

Club Vinyl rooftop parties have begun and the first TAXI pool party is tonight, if you’re into those sort of things (aka, get into them). 

Devon made this grain-free tahini and maple granola and not only is it a not-too-sweet addition to yogurt and fruit for breakast, it makes for a great afternoon snack. 

While driving in the ever-worsening Denver traffic, Blake's been into relaxing to the SirusXM Chill station. 

Fleeing to the mountains this weekend? The GoPro Mountain Games are going down in Vail.

"If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food. It's a plus for everybody." - Anthony Bourdain
