Telluride Museum: Pub Crawl, 2/8

Slip – rather sip – into history with the Telluride Historical Museum on Thursday, February 8. The Museum’s historic Pub Crawl, “We Built This City,” will explain the Telluride region’s development. All proceeds from the pub crawl benefit the Telluride Historical Museum. The price of a ticket – $35 for Museum members;$40 for non-members – includes a drink at each stop along with bites at The Phoenix Bean. Tickets can be purchased online here, over the phone at 970-728-3344, or in person at the museum.

On Thursday, February 8, the Telluride Historical Museum hosts its first Pub Crawl of the winter 2018 season, during which patrons get to soak in Telluride history and culture while enjoying drinks at three local bars. Each stop features one round on the museum and a unique speaker telling the history of how Telluride and the region evolved. Themed “We Built This City” stops include The Liberty, The Phoenix Bean, and The Last Dollar Saloon.

The crawl begins at The Liberty on S. Fir Street with Warner Catsman.

Born and raised in Telluride, now President of Finbro Construction, Warner will offer a builders perspective on the town’s development.

Next the group moves to the Phoenix Bean to enjoy small bites and information from architect and longtime resident George Greenbank.

Ending at The Last Dollar Saloon, patrons get to enjoy one last round and insights from the Town of Telluride’s Historic Preservation Planner, Jonna Wensel.

The Telluride Historical Museum works to bring the history of the region to life through a variety of programs, offering hikes into history, red light district tours, and regular historic walking tours of town in the summer. The historic pub crawls are a way for the museum to engage people during the colder months of the year.
