I <3 CO: The Weekend Guide, Memorial Day Edition
Memorial Day weekend is (almost) a day away and it looks like the weather here in Denver is committing to staying sunny and warm! Whatever you've got going on for the holiday weekend, we've rounded together a couple of fun things to check out here in Mile High.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: "Finding hygge" premiere with HYGGE LIfe, INFINITE MONKEY THEOREM & THE REGIONAL
Denver Flea vendors and faves Hygge Life are hosting the Colorado premiere of a documentary called "Finding Hygge" tonight and tomorrow at Infinite Monkey Theorem in RiNo. The film is all about "hygge" ( pronounced "hoo-gah," for those of you who've been wondering), the Danish art of creating joy & coziness in life's every day moments, and Hygge Life is featured in it - how cool is that? Each night will include a showing of the documentary, IMT wines, bites provided by Flea friend Kevin Grossi of The Regional, and a Q&A session with the film crew. More details + tickets can be found on the Facebook event page and the Hygge Life website.
sATURDAY: Bake sale x plant pop-up with Lula Rose @ Dio Mio
Dio Mio is teaming up with Lula Rose General Store/Little Lula Rose for a bake sale and plant pop-up on Saturday, because why not have a few pastries while you stock up on some new succulents? They'll be setting up shop from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., with plenty of flower arrangements, home goods, and other plants from the Lula Rose team, as well as pastries, freshly-baked bread, pasta by the ounce, and coffee from the crew of Dio Mio.

Monday: senor bear one-year anniversary party
Spend Memorial Day celebrating with the Senor Bear crew!
