Fridays in Lionshead mean fun for all ages.  For the over 21 crowd, FAC or Friday Afternoon Club is a short gondola ride away at Eagle's Nest atop Vail Mountain.  A different band performs each Friday and there is plenty of room to sit on the expansive patio if you get there early.  On a nice night, it totally fills up!  Food and drink are readily available and the views of Mount of the Holy Cross and the Gore Range are breathtaking!  You'll probably see deer and maybe even a bear down below in the meadows on the gondola ride. 

Family Friday Afternoon Club takes place in Lionshead plaza at the base of the Eagle Bahn gondola.  There is a plethera of kids activities and entertainment as well as food and drink to keep the adults happy.
