• Sip a complimentary Signature Negroni with any food purchase over $25 at Bar Helix in RiNo, which is one of two Negroni bars in the U.S.

COST: $55 for 55 cards representing different restaurant locations, plus 1 bonus card for a free Let’s Roam scavenger hunt.


A Nostalgia-Filled “Friends”-Themed Brunch Is Coming to Denver in February

Although it’s been 15 years since Americans’ hearts were warmed by the final episode of Friends, everyone’s favorite television sitcom will be front and center at a brunch event coming to Denver next year.

An organization called the Brunch Club that produces pop culture-inspired brunch events in major U.S. cities announced Thursday that it will bring a Friends-themed brunch to Denver on February 23.

A press release promises a quiz game with prizes, Friends-themed charades, and projectors showing Friends episodes. There will also, of course, be a costume competition with prizes that will presumably be awarded to whoever walks in still rocking a Rachel haircut.

A location for the event was not included with the announcement and tickets do not yet appear to be on sale. However, those wanting to spend an afternoon with like-minded Friends fanatics can register their interest (and presumably receive more information) by entering their email on the Brunch Club website.
