From 5 - 10 p.m., Friday, July 3, the Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery, 931 West Fifth Avenue, is participating in the Golden Triangle's First Friday Art Walk by hosting "Art Under the Influence," a grape stomp in the courtyard that includes wines by the glass, great grub from Masterpiece Deli and a DJ.
Hang out, get lubed, dance your butt off and then head over to the Whole Foods Market at 870 South Colorado Boulevard to watch the City of Glendale's fireworks display from the market's parking lot, where there will also be live music (including several Westword Best of Denver bands) games and face painting for the kids and a grilling party with brats, veggie burgers, cheeseburgers, plus salads, desserts and drinks. Reservations aren't necessary, but getting there early wouldn't be a bad idea.
On Sunday, July 5, the Warwick Hotel and Randolph's Restaurant, 1776 Grant Street, is hosting a rooftop poolside barbecue from noon to 3 p.m. There's an $8 cover charge for pool access and you can order from an a la carte menu, which includes your usual suspect barbecue fare -- burgers, hot dogs, chicken, sides and salads -- plus firecracker Bloody Marys. For more info, call 303-318-7272.
