We’re a week into the New Year and I have to be honest–2016 feels RIGHT.  We’ve all had a week to recover from our various parties and celebrations, and it’s inevitably time to think about what’s going to happen tomorrow when the clock strikes 5ish.

Well, just like 2015, I’ll be your faithful 2016 events coordinator, giving you the facts and special inside scoop so that you never feel like you have nothing to do when you’re wrapping up a day of shredding.  Here’s the weekend scoop:

Moose Hockey vs Boston
Location: Snow King Arena
Time: Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 pm
Information: Cheer on the Jackson Hole Moose as they take on the Boston Beans
THE INSIDE SCOOP: You may have noticed that the Moose are playing the “Boston Beans.”  I made up this team name but I really think I’m onto something. I’m a big ol’ Moose Hockey fan, so I will definitely be there with 200 of my closest friends.  And yes, you can be a part of that friend group.


Teka Brock Band at The Mangy Moose
Location: The Mangy Moose in Teton Village
Time: Friday at 8 pm, $5 at the door
Information: Always extremely popular at the Mangy Moose – Teka Brock and her band deliver great music with influences from the likes of: The Judds, Allison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Kasey Chambers, Dolly Parton, Robert Earl Keen, Coles Whalen, Jewel, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: The influences listed above lead me to believe that this band will ROCK.  And how often can you see an awesome band for just $5?!  Here’s how you should/could handle the day.  Meander into The Moose around 5, have some nachos and a beverage, and just relax until it’s time to boogie.


Mustache Militia at The Silver Dollar Bar
Location: The Silver Dollar Bar in The Wort Hotel
Time: Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 pm
Information: Men in Mustaches who serenade.
THE INSIDE SCOOP:  These guys make me want to grow a mustache (side note: I’ve tried and I can’t).  I’ve seen The Mustache Militia play before and they deliver a very nice vibe that aims to please.  Get there early and grab a table so that you can relax, dance, eat, drink or whatever else strikes your fancy.

Mr. Whipple at The Rose
Location: The Rose in Downtown Jackson
Time: Friday at 10 pm, Free admission
Information:  Smooth beats by DJ Mr. Whipple will add that extra something to your evening.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: See below.  Do you see that kitten tee?  If that’s not an indicator of good DJ skills, I don’t know what is. Mr Whipple’s show is free, so head over with a big group and be the start to the dance party.  There’s no prize for starting the party, but I’m sure there are plenty of bragging rights.

One Leaf Clover at The Tavern
Location: The Tavern in Downtown Jackson
Time: Saturday at 10:30 pm
Information: What is Mountain Boogie Rock? It is equal parts country and funk, rock and reggae, music and mountains. It is original songs inspired by life in the Rockies. Known for their high energy shows and playing until the cows come home, O.L.C. is both a testament to and a celebration of mountain life and culture. One Leaf Clover has opened for Rusted Root, Langhorne Slim, Adam Lambert, and Chuck Mead.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: These guys wrote in their bio that they’re known for playing until the cows come home…and I’ve heard rumors that cows RARELY go home.  So, eat a high protein dinner, caffeinate, put on your dance pants and head over to the show.

TGR Premiere: The Sammy C Project
Location: Pink Garter Theater in Downtown Jackson
Time: Saturday night, Early showing at 6:30 pm, 21+ showing at 8:30 pm
Information: Tickets are $10, available at the door and online.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: You down with Sammy C? YEAH YOU KNOW ME. I’m going to this premiere because it includes several things that I like.  Good movies.  Good friends.  Good shredding.  And a dance party immediately following.  Tickets are only $10, so head to the show.  Maybe I’ll save you a seat!


Have a great weekend everyone!
