From Dusk 'Til Dawn
When the day closes with a magnificent sunset on the western horizon, the night is just beginning at Casper's clubs, bars, and restaurants! What's your poison? A night of comedy? A live band? A DJ at the turntables with a mixologist behind the bar? A film followed by a discussion at a late-night cyber-café? A romantic dinner for two? Whatever your idea of night-time fun, Casper has it!
Casper dearly believes the idiom "the night is still young." Whether we are enjoying a great jazz improv on the lawn of the Nicolaysen Art Museum for Wednesday Night Live with a tap beer in hand and our dog at our side, or we are amongst the more formal surroundings of the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra (307.266.1478), Casperites take music appreciation seriously (in fact, so do some of our dogs). Discuss your favorite riffs with the after-concert dessert bar and tapas at Gegi's at the Atrium Plaza. Or if you're lucky, you'll catch our Nightlife Adventure Guide Chad Lore at one of our finest local pubs. Don't miss any opportunity to see Lore-Casper's own tap-dancing, guitar-playing, harmonica-blowing, request-singing, one-man party machine in a well-worn hat.
Did that new movie you've been dying to see open the weekend you went out of town? No worries! Casper has seventeen movie screens, and many auditoriums feature stadium seating, giant screens, and the best in digital sound quality. One of the oldest playhouses, The Rialto, is the best place to catch an art house release, and--in the old-time tradition--the original balcony is open for more romantic seating. Fellow old-timer, The America Stadium Theatre is completely revamped with the biggest screen in Wyoming for wrap-around blockbuster enjoyment. Just a few steps from both are the three-screen Fox and the new, state-of-the-art eight-screen Iris Stadium 8.
Crucial to any night of serious movie going is a stop at the Metro Coffee Company. Tradition dictates that film buffs trade critiques over foaming latte. Metro is also a cyber-café with original art, the New York Times, and comfy sofas galore.
If you'd prefer to start the evening with light refreshments and heavy thinking, then head to Moody Brews for a quiet pub table, homemade gelato and a game of chess with the local champ. After that cool-down, Stage III Community Theatre offers a full season of quality entertainment.
Got an itch for the witching hour? Then make certain you book a reservation for the popular Ghost Tour by candlelight, offered by Painted Past. Their professional actors bring the theatre to our historic streets, and you'll have a ghoulishly good time scaring up Casper's friendly ghosts.
So if the night is still young-just like your spirit--let Casper see you through 'til the break of dawn!
