Over the Rainbow: Last Days of Nye's

Daily from July 21-Aug. 6
Time Varies
Art, Barhopping, Food and Drink, Galleries

Who wouldn’t want one last chance to drink in an eyeful of Nye’s shenanigans? Photographers Mike Madison and Steven Cohen clearly did. The result is a lively show of Nye’s Polonaise Room’s last days as one of the last authentic drinking, community, and polka experiences in town. If you blinked during Art-A-Whirl this year, you might have missed this exhibition’s opening, so a special closing reception is being held this weekend. The World’s Most Dangerous Polka Band (the house band at Nye’s for decades) will be on hand to enliven the activities. Take a look, reminisce, maybe even weep as you dance your partner round and round. 5 to 10 p.m.
