…hope I haven’t spoke too soon… but, YEAH, spring is here! The weather hit the 70s last week, and weather in the 50s this week – it’s downright balmy! Snow is disappearing fast, and while we do love winter activities, winter can stay during its designated months.

So, yes, the meteorologists are predicting some wintery weather today through Friday – a little more snow, but the temps are going to be nice. And it’s really no surprise that a winter storm in the spring will hit us… but we’d like to see just one!

At any rate, weather is something we can’t control – but Deadwood is really hopping this spring. Lots of great things happening, and we are planning for another first-class summer. Get on out here!

Oh, and if you haven’t heard, Blood, Sweat & Tears will play the Deadwood Jam on Sept. 17. They join Collective Soul, John Eddie, John McEuen and many others on the stage this year, the 20th anniversary of the Deadwood Jam.

Add those great bands into our others lined up – Ryan Shupe and the RubberBand and John Michael Montgomery for Wild Bill Days; and The Platters and Sha Na Na for Kool Deadwood Nites; and music interests of all types will be in for a real treat this year in Deadwood! Visit for more information.

Until next time,

The weather was perfect, and the celebration drew thousands to Deadwood to participate in the annual St. Paddy’s weekend celebration. A poker run, pub crawl and parade highlighted the day, but live entertainment all over town throughout the day was not overshadowed!

And it’s not over yet!

Tomorrow (Wed., March 17, ST. PATRICK’S DAY) will be another, the official parade, starting at 5 p.m. The weather will again be gorgeous (60s!) so we can’t complain – come one, come all! It’s going to be a great day – and too Mother Nature – spring, you are very much welcomed!

Have a great week,

An odd combination, but both things are happening this week! St. Paddy’s Day celebrations kick-off on Saturday at noon, with the parade at 7 p.m. On St. Patrick’s Day proper, March 17, the parade will proceed on Deadwood’s Main Street beginning at 5 p.m. And if you want to be in either parade, we got room!

And Blackjack you say? We have got just the game for you — it’s all through text messaging (it’s free, but your carrier will charge you for the text messages you send/receive, unless you have unlimited texting – the game if free to play though!) .
Text the word PLAY to 88188. Follow the prompts and get to playing! At the end of the month, whoever has the highest amount of money in the bank (don’t worry, it’s not real money), will win great Deadwood prizes! The highest bank in March will win a free season ski pass to Mystic Miner!

Good luck and hope to see many of you this weekend!
