Talented musicians from well-known orchestras participate in the Grand Teton Music Festival (tel. 307/733-3050 or 733-1128 for the box office; www.gtmf.org) held in summer in the amphitheater next to the tram lift. Tickets, typically $50 or less, are usually available on short notice, especially for the weeknight chamber music performances, which are often terrific.

Wyoming's only year-round professional theatrical group, the Off Square Theatre Company, performs classic and contemporary comedies and dramas at the Center for the Arts, 265 S. Cache St. (tel. 307/733-3021; www.offsquare.org). Tickets (typically $15-$25) for all shows should be reserved.

Those less impressed with dramaturgy should head down to the Silver Dollar Bar, at 50 N. Glenwood St. in the Wort Hotel (tel. 307/733-2190), for a drink with one of the real or wannabe cowpokes at the bar. And, yes, those 2,032 silver dollars are authentic. At the very famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar on the Town Square, at 25 N. Cache St. (tel. 307/733-2207; www.milliondollarcowboybar.com), you can dance the two-step to live bands or just mill around and check out the unique details: knobby pine, saddle bar stools, and plenty of taxidermy. For live music and DJs, the young, restless, and intoxicated congregate at 43° North, 645 S. Cache St. (tel. 307/733-0043), near the base of Snow King. If you want some high-octane dancing fun led by some talented local hoofers, head west to Wilson and the Stagecoach Bar (tel. 307/733-4407) on Wyo. 22 on a Sunday night. It's the only night there's live music in this classic Western joint, and the place is jammed wall-to-wall.
