If you've considered attending a "paint party/paint & sip event" or have already "been there, done that," then more power to you. Such gatherings are a great way to socialize with friends and meet new ones while enjoying your favorite beverages and appetizers. Drinking or being an artist is not required, but simply putting your paintbrush to the canvas and enjoying yourself is. Acrylic paints are the usual choice at paint parties. Plus, other materials used to paint are ceramics, wood panels, wine glasses, and mugs.
rivia Night gets underway on Wednesday, December 28th. It's a chance to test your "suave savvy" against family members and friends. One problem, though; your friends and family might not talk to you for a while after you kick their "you know what" in a game of Trivia! This event is a benefit for the Butte Public Library to help with library materials and programs. While the library is also set to provide questions during Trivia Night, the Butte Elks Lodge will be on board with plenty of refreshments. Hmmm, an ice-cold one could make for better trivia answers! Remember, that's Trivia Night on December 28th at the Butte Elks Lodge beginning at 6:30 p.m. All participants for Singo must be 18 years of age or older. So, there you have it! Two fun ways to unwind and enjoy friends and family in the process. That's Trivia Night and Singo at the Butte Elks Lodge (206 W. Galena) next Wednesday and Thursday!

Throughout the Mining City, every resident has their own set of traditions and period of time when they "plan" to start celebrating the holiday season. Many customarily start decorating and buying gifts for Christmas at the onset of Thanksgiving. Some have been ready since last summer, while others wait a few days before December 25th to get into the spirit. Then, there are those who have key events that help gear them up for the holiday. One popular and inspiring event in the community that has done just that for so many is the Uptown Butte Christmas Stroll! Like clockwork, it all happens tomorrow night (December 2nd) for everyone in the community and the surrounding area to enjoy! Butte's Stroll has been the leading festive gathering in the area to full-heartedly welcome the December month for decades! Its nostalgic and festive appeal is what keeps people coming back for more.
