Sharlot Hall Museum is one of the historic gems of Prescott. Unfortunately, the Arizona legislature continues to reduce its funding. Fortunately, our Prescott Area Independents (independent restaurant and bar owners) are stepping up to help fill part of the gap. Their war cry is “Let’s party!” To ensure we do it right, they are having two parties, not just one.Party 1 is at Sharlot Hall Museum, 415 W. Gurley Street from 5-7PM on Thursday April 1st with food, music, beer, wine, and maybe some engaging conversation, but certainly lots of fun!Party 2 is at the Old Firehouse Plaza, 220 W. Goodwin Street where you will “party on” with more music, more fun, music, wine and food and maybe an engaging conversation or two. Do not miss this inaugural event, tickets for both parties are $15 in advance of $20 for walk-ins.Tickets available in advance at Sharlot Hall Museum, Firehouse Kitchen Restaurant, Larry and Hy’s Bare Bones BBQ on Whiskey Row, Scores Sports Bar and Grill on Commerce Drive and at Leff’T’ Steakhouse in Dewey. Walk-in tickets for $20 at entrances to both parties. The only thing left to do is to heed the war cry “Let’s party!
