Tuesday nights at Gallatin Riverhouse Grill, starting at 6 p.m.

Grab your favorite dauber and your lucky rabbit foot and head down to the Gallatin Riverhouse Grill for an evening of good old-fashioned bingo.

This event draws locals both young and old, creating a diverse and lively bunch. This affordable affair allows for a chance to win big while also knowing your funds are benefitting a great cause, Big Sky’s American Legion Post 99.

Drink specials and great food—I’m a sucker for their Moscow Mules and famous grilled chicken wings—not to mention a chance to win cash and prizes from local Big Sky businesses, make for a festive time at this popular, Western-themed saloon on the Gallatin River.



Trivia night

Friday nights at Lone Peak Cinema, starting at 8 p.m.

You may think you’re pretty sharp, but the crew at Lone Peak Cinema never fails to bust out a category that has even the most seasoned Trivial Pursuit player scratching their head.

Grab three friends to create a team of four, and put your heads together during four rounds consisting of 10 questions each at the Big Sky Town Center cinema. The movie theater has a full bar, so you can indulge in an adult beverage or two while digging through the back of your brain for the right answers.

Each round has a prize, often a pitcher of beer or bottle of wine from behind the bar, and the winning team after four rounds takes home the grand prize, which varies from week to week.
