first Friday Micro Markets * 5-8pm

If you've ever been to an Ink Lounge event, you know we like to  combine many creative things wrapped around a whimsical theme. So our First Fridays are a series of micro-markets with local artists/makers, super tasty libations – and often have an all ages  screenprinting activity. Free and kid friendly!

* PLEASE NOTE: We don't do every month as we also like to get out on First Fridays to see what the Denver creative community is up to.


July 7 * summer Dog BArket

Friday July 7 * 5-8pm
Our July First Friday is art and vendors all inspired by our furry friends, and we're calling it a Micro Barket! We're excited to be partnering with MaxFund and they will be bringing their mobile adoption so you can meet some new friends. All the drinks sales this night will also benefit MaxFund to help support the great work they do. Many thanks to The Denver Dog Magazine for helping promote too!

The event as always is kid and family friendly – and if your pooch is well behaved and on a leash – they are more than welcome to attend since there will be many things for them to sniff out.

Shenanigans we're working on:
* Doggie Bags: for the first 20 attendees filled with goodies for both pets & owners
* Koozie Screenprinting: 6-7pm - $5 donation with proceeds benefiting MaxFund
* Tasty Beverages: including Greyhounds made with Bear Creek vodka
* MaxFund Mobile Adoption Unit: come meet some furry friends in need of a home
* In the Works: dogsicles for the pups, hot dog vendor, grooming station and more...

Meet all the fine folks helping out! More being added too.
