This is best followed up with a craft cocktail from a local distillery. Because, you know, a little liquid inspo never hurt either!
Dancing at Townshend’s
Express yourself in a new way when you head to a swing dancing, salsa, or tango night at Townshend’s Bozeman Teahouse. Shake it on the dance floor while you meet new people, and enjoy the creativity that comes from moving your body while snow flies outside.
Tour Yellowstone In Winter
