What to do???

I have been trying to think of something to do tomorrow for my birthday.  I do have to work a couple of hours in the afternoon which should be fun.  It is Brothel Days in Virginia City.  Ellen Baumler is doing a presentation on brothels in Montana, Dave Calendine will be playing historic piano and bed races.  So I should be entertained all day. :D

In the evening I think I may do a lantern tour in Nevada City.

This is what I found online:

In the summer of 1864 a feud between two men Murphy and Brady, led to a shooting and hanging. Museum visitors witness the incident firsthand as this historic performance unfolds by the light of a lantern.

Tours meet at the Nevada City Living History Museum Music Hall at 9:30 pm.Follow a 19th Century Costumed tour Guide by Lantern Light through the streets of Nevada City, watching history unfold before your eyes. Our Nevada City Living History Tours have been called "The closest thing to stepping into a time machine in Montana." You will be in the middle of the action, watching as townspeople recreate "historic events that happened in Montana's early history. Immersed in the sights, sounds, of the past. Unlike many 'ghost tours,' you will be the ghosts, Nevada City residents will not be aware that you are there, and they will carry on with their daily lives. You will have the opportunity to observe history as it happens. This one of a kind tour is not for the faint of heart, expect occasional gun fire, hangings, cowhiding, as the Vigilantes control the night. At the end of the tour you will be taken back to the Music Hall and have the chance to ask questions about what you witnessed, and how it relates to the historic events of Alder Gulch

I will let you know on Monday what I do... and pictures.
