All weekend: The Flatirons Food Film Festival is in its 6th year, kicking off Friday night with a film about Cuban foodways. The food-focused festival includes a tribute to Anthony Bourdain, a tour of Boulder’s Cure Organic Farm, and a screening of Carbondale filmmaker Tomas Zuccareno’s film, “How We Grow,” about young farmers blazing an agricultural trail in the Roaring Fork Valley.

For lunch: Fans of Post Oak Hall have a new reason to visit the Wheat Ridge eatery. Pepperbelly Barbecue will have a Saturday and Sunday pop-up beginning with breakfast tacos and kolaches from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and then Ryan Smith’s mouth-watering, Texas-style barbecue from 11 a.m. until it sells out. The weekends-only pop-up will continue through the end of the month.

For Drinks: Cap Hill institution Govnr’s Park Tavern is slated to close by the end of 2018, so fans can stop in from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for the weekend happy hour, where two-for-one draft beers, house margaritas, well drinks, wine, and Long Island iced teas are on special.

Late Night: Residents of the D.U. area know that the place to go after last call is Jerusalem, where shawarma, baba ghanoush, and falafel are served until 5 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Brunch: Dwellers of LoHi likely already know about weekend brunch at Marcella’s. But late-morning diners from around the city should check out dishes here from eggs Benedict to shrimp polenta. There are also plenty of Italian standards to choose from, like spaghetti alla carbonara and chicken parmesan.
