First Fridays

Babes Around Denver Presents the largest monthly women's party in the US

BAD began in the fall of 2002 when a group of women were discussing their desire to get together for happy hour on a regular basis. Given the lack of women’s venues, Dede Frain, consummate networker and tireless organizer, sent a single email invitation for a “December Happy Hour”. After the second happy hour, Dede realized that the network was growing fast and she officially started First Friday. Her dear friend Ellen Keating coined the “Babes Around Denver” name and “BAD” was formed! First Friday has grown dramatically over the last six years with attendance now exceeding 1,500 women, ranging in age from 21-75 EVERY month.
