Ever wanted to see Honest Abe sport tie-dye, or the Beatles croon to an old-timey banjos? Get ready to scratch that weird desire off your bucket list; the opportunity to combine the 1860s and the 1960s is upon us.
The Idaho State Historical Museum presents one hell of a psychedelic crossover as it celebrates bygone eras. On Friday, July 26, the 60/60 event combines the sharp shootin' of the 1860s with the free love of the 1960s.
Celebrate your favorite era in Wild West saloon- and Mod-themed bars while period music from the Vinyl Preservation Society wafts through the museum. It will also be a night of vintage costumes, groovy games, contests and prizes. At the same time, check out the Essential Idaho exhibit, where guests can explore the lives of Idahoans from each decade. Admission costs $20 in advance or $25 at the door and includes one drink and appetizers to sweeten the deal. Museum members save $5 off the advanced ticket price. Come to party, but leave the kids at home—60/60 is limited to guests ages 18 or older.
Whether you're a cowboy or a hippie, crave a dry martini or rot-gut whiskey, it's time to pick a side or do the Time Warp to mix-and-match.
