Most of our events are open to the public and are BYOB as long you are all responsible adults—and act like responsible adults. Bracelets will be affixed to the wrists of humans of legal age to consume alcohol. We care about your safety. You will be asked to stay overnight here in our comfy sleeping bags if we determine you are either 1) intending to drive while inebriated, or 2) too hot for you own good. The Main Street Museum—making the neighborhood safe and fun and since 1992. Where else can you have real fun in the Upper Valley? Nowhere. Only here! Cya soon!
