And we’re sending you guys on a scavenger hunt to get excited for the party and to win free beanies. We’re hiding beanies all over Fort Collins. Some we are leaving for you without leaving clues behind and others will have clues supplied on our Facebook page.

    If you find a mini beanie, you will win either a $5 off coupon, $10 off coupon, free t-shirt, free t-shirt with beanie purchase, or free custom beanie. If you take a picture with your mini beanie and send it to us at suzanne@akinz.com then you’ll also be entered to win a free hoodie. Keep an eye out around town and on our Facebook Page for hints to nab one.

  • 2nd Annual Sunglasses at Night Party

    Well, the long-awaited 2nd annual Sunglasses at Night Party has come and gone and it was amazing! I brought more than double the number of glasses as we had people last year and we ran out of glasses at 10:45! For those of you that didn’t get sunnies, I’m sorry! At least you got free cover. The place was packed, drinks were flowing, people were dancing.

    Party started at 9pm, right after the Steamboat Park Challenge’s Akinz Fly By Night Big Air and went hard until closing time. Thanks to the Sweetwater Grill for hosting and to DJ Theory for jamming dance-worthy tunes.


  • 2nd Annual Sunglasses at Night Party

    After the ‘Fly by Night’ Big Air comp at Howelsen Hill, head over to Sweetwater Grill for the 2nd Annual Sunglasses at Night Party.

    $5 cover gets you a pair of our new colors of the Shenanakinz sunglasses (your choice of teal, white, or plum — retail value $15), drink specials, and a chance to win free Akinz schwag.

    Music by DJ Theory

    Last year was killer at Amante, but since we ran them out of liquor 3x in one night, we figured we would find a larger venue.. so come out to Sweetwater Grill.
