Dropping into the Weekend

Good energy is swirling around the Teton Valley.  How do I know this?  Because I’m a bit of a wizard…and also because the weather forecast is beyond stellar.  It’s going to snow A LOT, so start visualizing your fluffy turns and practice high-fiving your friends so that you don’t miss hands at the chairlift (so embarrassing).

Let’s plan what you’re going to do when your feet aren’t strapped into skis or a board.  It’s the last weekend of the Golden Ticket Promotion, which means you still have time to take advantage of 50% off lift tickets with a season pass from any ski resort.  This also means that you should call all of your friends and have a rowdy (yet safe) weekend.  Just a friendly suggestion.

A-Mac DZ at The Mangy Moose
Location: The Mangy Moose in Teton Village
Time: Friday and Saturday at 9 pm
Information: $5 at the door. Straight out of Denver, Colorado, A-Mac DZ has defined the art of fusing acoustic rock with reggae and hip-hop.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: Reggae infused acoustic rock.  Watermelon infused Spicy Marg.  Fun infused Friday. Plans made in Mangy Moose infusion heaven.

Moose Hockey vs Chicago
Location: Snow King Ice Arena
Time: Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm
Information: $10 at the door
THE INSIDE SCOOP: Contrary to popular belief, the hockey players are humans, not moose (meese?) on ice skates. Disappointing, but the honest truth.  If you regularly read my blog, you know that I get FIRED UP about Moose Games, so I will be there sporting 50-100 shades of team spirit.


Pica’s Margarita Cup
Location: Snow King Resort
Time: Friday Night under the Lights
Information: The Margarita Cup features snow, speed, and fun! The adult ski racing series is held on Friday nights under the lights at Snow King Mountain.
THE INSIDE SCOOP:  I don’t ski race, but it’s super fun to watch.  Prepare yourself a thermos full of something delicious and check out the speedsters gracefully rocketing down Snow King.

Richiebeats at The Pink Garter
Location: The Pink Garter Theater in Downtown Jackson
Time: Friday at 10 pm
Information: This is a free event for 21+.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: I’ve never seen Richiebeats perform, but I really enjoy saying “Richiebeats.”  There’s nothing better than a free event at The Pink Garter, especially when there are so many fun things that you could do leading up to the concert (eating dinner counts as a fun thing to do, especially if you’re eating pizza).

Ice Skating on the Town Square
Location: Downtown Jackson
Time: Saturday 12pm-9 pm
Information: Friends and families are invited to gather in Jackson Hole’s picturesque Town Square to enjoy the outdoor skating rink.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: Ice skating on the square? Helllooooo romance.  If you don’t have anyone to go with, consider treating yourself to a romantic skate night for one.  Maybe you’ll make friends!


Jameson Music Series presents John Wayne’s World
Location: The Pink Garter Theater in Downtown Jackson
Time: Saturday at 10:30 pm
Information: This is a free event for 21+.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: I know that there are a lot of whiskey enthusiasts in Jackson, so this is a great fit.  Drink specials. Good music.  Responsible decision making.  Alright Saturday night!
