Power Picks: How We Spend Our Summer Fridays

From Memorial Day to Labor Day The Power Group hosts what we call “Summer Fridays”. Each Friday between the two holidays our team gets off at 2 p.m. to start the weekend early! With the end of Summer Fridays right around the corner, we thought it was only fitting to pull together a list of some of our favorite ways to spend these special Fridays.



Summer travel is the best. I love to kick off my weekend getaways early during the summer months, and it is super convenient to have these days when trying to fly out of town. This summer I have traveled to Miami, Playa del Carmen, Nashville and New York City. I also have plans to visit Scottsdale, AZ before the end of September. If I’m staying in Dallas, I enjoy hitting up Katy Trail Ice House as close to 2 p.m. as possible – gotta hurry before the line gets long! I also frequent my pool on Summer Fridays.



I love having Summer Fridays at The Power Group. There is no better way to start the weekend than with some beaming sunshine and a refreshing drink; poolside. I also spend the afternoons beating the Friday rush at popular stores, or running my “to-do” errands. I am looking forward to spending my last summer Friday in Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend. It is never too early to start the weekend fun! 



Summer Fridays are the best! I love getting an early start to my weekend whether it is making it to happy hour, running errands before stores get busy, getting some last minute sun in at the pool or heading to my friends’ lake houses before rush hour traffic. These activities wouldn’t be possible without Summer Fridays, so I really appreciate the extra time we are given!



On Friday afternoons during the summer I typically get in a few hours by the pool, make a beauty appointment (nails, hair, massage) or meet up with friends for an early happy hour! Those three extra hours at the end of a busy week provide our team with a great way to wind down for the weekend. I’ll miss them when fall rolls around!



I live for Summer Fridays! They make the weekend that much better. I typically spend my Fridays laying by the pool and relaxing, last minute shopping before the weekend or going to my favorite happy hour. I’ve really been enjoying trying different happy hours and restaurants since I’m new to Dallas. Some of my favorite spots are Beverly’s, Happiest Hour or Cru Wine Bar. 



Summer Fridays are the best way to kick-start your weekend. I love having the time to relax after a busy week to read, catch up on TV, run errands or lay out by the pool. Summer Fridays are also great for traveling since you can hit the road before rush hour or schedule your flight earlier. I’m planning to spend my last Summer Friday in Florida to visit my parents for Labor Day Weekend!



Can Summer Friday’s never go away? This summer I have been traveling a lot, which has been made very convenient with those extra hours on Fridays. So far, I have traveled to Rosemary Beach, Cabo San Lucas, Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, Scottsdale, Jackson Hole and next on my list is Aspen! When I am in town for the weekend, I use the early kick-start to fit in a workout, grab lunch and drinks with a friend or run some last minute errands.
