It's Thursday afternoon, meaning the weekend is just a day away - or even less if your company s all about Summer Fridays. We've rounded together a few fun things our team is stoked on attending this weekend (no suprise that they all involved a lot of good food and drinks). 


 Happy for a good cause on Friday.

FRIDAY: HIKING FOR WISHES - LUCY's fundraiser for Make a wish colorado @ low country kitchen

There's nothing we like more than heading to a summertime happy hour on one of the city's stellar rooftop patios - and bonus when it's for a great cause. As such, you'll find us at Low Country Kitchen on Friday to support local photographer, writer and friend-of-the-Flea Lucy Beaugard as she gears up for a 23.7 hike on the Colorado Trail for the children of Make a Wish Colorado and in memory of a dear friend. Enjoy Low Country's happy hour offerings like Southern bites (we're all about those chicken biscuits) and cocktails, try your luck at winning one of the raffle prizes from local restaurants and help Lucy raise some funds. Learn more about the event Lucy's hike and the happy hour on the Facebook event page

SUNDAY: Yelp rocks out! @ FoX STREET COMPOUND

Round out your weekend with Yelp Colorado's rockin' party benefitting Youth on Record's FEMpowered program, a music club for young women who have an interest in learning about and making music, and celebrate the ladies of music here in Denver.
