Just yesterday, I posted an article about the fate of the World Museum of Mining's Opening Day. The original plan was for organizers to unveil another awe-inspiring season of Butte's nostalgia to the public beginning April 1st! Well, just announced this afternoon some of that plan remains in place, but with a few twists and turns. While the museum gift shop and some underground tours will still open on the FIRST of next month, the museum grounds will NOT open until April 20th. Well, that's as long as winter doesn't overstay its welcome as much as it already has. Unprecedented amounts of snow on the premise led to the decision not to open the outside area of the museum as initially planned.
Who's got the best hot dog anywhere? No matter the region of America, that's a tough question to answer. What is simply a sausage on a bun, can evolve into a local culinary legend. Guess what? Butte, Montana is home to the 'Best Hot Dog in Montana'.
St. Patrick's Day 2023 in Butte, America, the Richest Can-Do Hill of Champions. The long winter is almost over, and this year St. Patrick's Day is on a Friday. Friday St. Patrick's Days, let's just say, can get a little crazy. Should you find yourself in Uptown Butte, as many of you will, here are a couple watering holes you need to visit.
Another event to check out if you're feeling mighty green is the Ceilidh in Anaconda this Sunday (March 12th) at the Anaconda AOH Hall (321-323 E Commercial) beginning at 3 pm.

Described as the shortest, loudest, and coldest parade in Montana, the annual Chinese New Year Parade is set to make its mark in Butte on Saturday, January 28th! The Mai Wah Society has been hosting this event for many years and is excited to continue the tradition with the Year of the Rabbit as the focus. The parade route begins at 3 pm in front of the Butte-Silverbow Courthouse (155 W. Granite) and will head east on Granite. The Butte High History Club has their work cut out for them as they will once again serve as dragon dancers during the Chinese New Year Parade in Uptown Butte. This is a hands-on event, so bystanders are encouraged to follow the dragon throughout the parade. If you'd rather sit back and observe the parade, that is highly encouraged, too. The Mai Wah Society (17 W. Mercury) will also host a reception following the parade.
