We have a mantra for life: sun’s out, pup’s out. From live music to a 5K and an adoption event, we sniffed out some recs for you and puppo. When all your hard bork is done for the week, grab your woof, a leash, and some treatos, and check out these fun things to do this weekend in Denver.
Park Hill Treasures, Denver
Saturday, June 11, 4–6 p.m.
Rockstar rovers, listen up! Park Hill Treasures is hosting a free outdoor concert this Saturday off Colfax. The band is TBD, but they’ll be playing classic rock, so this is your official notice to get your lighters and devil horns ready! Puppers, be sure to BYOW (water) and BYOLC (lawn chairs).
2. Sidecar Saturday Live Music
This Saturday, both Bruz Beers locations are hosting FREE live music as part of their Sidecar Saturday series. Bruz (Off Fax) will be hosting the local acoustic rock duo Hawk and Longbottom while Bruz Beers in Midtown will be hosting folk singer-songwriter Jesh Yancey, so you and pup’ll have your pick of genres! Bonus points: it’s just a buck for a 4 oz pour with purchase of a full draft.
Get your morning run in while having a legit excuse for sippin’ a morning beer? Count us in, pawlease! This Saturday, Call to Arms Brewing Company is hosting a 5K at their pub in the Berkeley neighborhood. Registration starts at $35 and includes a free craft brew at the finish line, your choice of swag or collector’s pint glass from the Brewery Running Series, and entry for door prizes.
