“We do our Thirsty Thursday happy hour, and we wanted to do something around Halloween time to be a special Thirsty Thursday,” says museum director Shelby Arnold. “And the yeti is a mythical character of the mountains, which goes along with the holiday.” Basically, it’s a social hour with a bunch of yeti-related goodies and gear: Great Divide will provide some Yeti Imperial Stout for attendees to sip on, and there will be giveaways from Yeti Cycles, a yeti costume contest, access to the museum’s temporary photography exhibit, and raffle drawings with First Descent.
Yeti Night runs from 6 to 9 p.m. and is free and open to both kids and adults; the American Mountaineering Museum is at 710 10th Street in Golden. Call 303-996-2755 or visit www.mountaineeringmuseum.org for more information.
