Golden History Museums will throw their annual “Black and White Night” shindig this Saturday.  This is always a fun event, with really good appetizers and desserts provided by the Golden Hotel.  MillerCoors is providing an interesting selection of classic and specialty beers, and Golden Moon Distillery will be mixing specialty cocktails.  This will be opening night for their new exhibit, Calendar Girls to Cowboys:  the Art of Advertising Coors.  They’ll also be trotting out a number of rarely-seen artifacts from their collection, just for the party.  There will be a silent auction, and all proceeds benefit the programs, collections conservation and exhibits GHM provides year round. Tickets can be purchased in person, online, or at the door.

City Council meets tonight at 6:30 in City Council Chambers.  They will discuss a proposed change to the traffic calming decision process.  The number of road-users considered to be “affected” would be reduced, and the process of petitioning for traffic calming would be eliminated, leaving the city with more latitude to install calming devices as they see fit.  They will also vote on whether to extend permit parking in the 8th and 9th Street area.  The study session will include a report on the future of the Armory building and reviewing the results of the downtown parking study.  The meeting will be broadcast on cable channel 8 and on the City website.
