Lavender’s Summer in the Cities Issue wouldn’t be complete without mentioning all the events we’ve got coming up that we’re throwing for you, our readers. Lavender’s two monthly events are amped up with more prizes and fun to be had, just for the summertime. First Thursday is for anyone who wants to come out and spend happy hour enjoying drink specials and appetizers with other people in our local rainbow community. Score Thursday has drink specials and appetizers while being geared toward sports, putting an emphasis on teams, friends, and fans who are out there and want to win money for equipment, travel, practices, competitions, and celebrations.

Put the events on your calendar and find us on Facebook and Eventbrite to register to win any of the prizes we’ll be giving away! So far, the list includes the following dates, places, and goodies. We’ll see you out there!

With Pride,
Andy
