AVON — Maya will kick off the summer season with the return of its popular Friday Afternoon Club Friday at The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain. Denver group The Radio Band will perform classic rock and current hits.

The Maya terrace opens at 5 p.m., with the live music starting at 6 p.m. Enjoy $3 tacos, $4 beers, $6 margaritas and $7 premium spirits all while watching another gorgeous Vail Valley sunset.

New this summer, Maya is launching a Maya Instagram contest.

The contest winner will be announced by Maya Chef Richard Sandoval on July 24th in celebration of National Tequila Day. The Maya management team will randomly select the Instagram contest winner; no purchase necessary to participate.
