Perfectly healthy people from coast to coast are already calling in sick for Thrillist’s Best Day of Your Life, the nation’s greatest new national holiday, and we want YOU to join their ranks. Spend all day Friday, June 21st hitting up the best restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and more that your city has to offer — as chosen by local Thrillist readers and editors.

Be on the lookout for Thrillist editors, who will be giving away complimentary high fives (and maybe some extra goodies too), and use Foursquare to check in at our #BDOYL locations for the chance to score freebies, discounts, and more!

Coffee Stop: Happy Coffee
1 S Broadway:
Denver, CO 80223
(720) 328-8214

Because you can’t have the Best Day of Your Life if you’re still recovering from the Best Yesterday of Your Life. Hit up the S Broadway java shop for a shot of espresso, or the Humble Pie Store a few blocks over on Elati for chocolate chess pie. Or if you’re by the Golden Triangle, a can’t miss is Readers’ Choice fave Rooster and Moon

Lunch: The Cherry Cricket
2641 E 2nd Ave
Denver, CO 80206
(303) 322-7666

Get a beer and pair it with a legendary Cricket burger with green chile. If it’s mobbed, Machete pours tequila and plates street tacos nearby.

Happy Hour: Jax
1539 17th St
Denver, CO 80202
(303) 292-5767

Come for the awesome happy hour, stay… for the awesome happy hour. Mosy back to LoDo and enjoy our Readers’ Choice happy hour with $3 oyster shooters/ $5 chorizo gravy fries. A few doors down on 17th St are Southern Hospitality’s rare-ass whiskies.

Party Time: Linger
2030 W 30th Ave
Denver, CO 80211
(303) 993-3120

Send off the #BDOYL at one of Denver’s top outdoor bars with a cold one. Walk down Tejon, watch the sun go down high above Highland, and drink ‘tails from the rooftop-based ’75 GMC RV at our Readers’ Choice outdoor bar. You just had the Best Day of Your Life.
