                HALLECK BAR PARTY

MAY 4, 2018 Known as the best cocktail party in Elko for the past 40+ years, members and friends with a glass of Beefeater gin, drink a toast to the acquisition of the antique bar and back bar from a saloon in the once wild and woolly nearby town of Halleck.  With an abundance of good company, good food, and of course, good gin, it is the best way to celebrate local history and culture.  The public is invited to join in celebrating a part of our local history.  The date for the next Halleck Bar Party is May 4, 2018 (6:00 – 9:00 pm).  We will celebrate with an “Old West” theme, live entertainment, and a silent auction!  Don’t forget to dress in costume for a chance to win the evening’s grand prize.
