Dancing Through the Decades Polar Bear Days Costume Party

The first of Polar Bear Days parties at Jim’s is Dancing Through the Decades which will be on February 18th at 9PM. Dress to the 9’s in your favorite historical era (whether or not that is strictly 20th Century is up to your interpretation & imagination) and party with flap dancers, hippies, 80’s metal rock bands, and mobsters in a time-warp winter wrap-up celebration of the times party that is sure to be an amazing time!

12th Annual Polar Bear Days Luau Party

The 12th Annual Luau Party at Jim’s will take place on February 25th and marks the end of Polar Bear Days. There will be LIVE music from Merchants of Swill starting at 8PM and lots of tropical themed fun to be had throughout the evening, so make sure to break out your grass skirts! 

Precluding the Luau will be the Chisholm Lions Kids Pajama Party with games, bingo & snacks so the kids can have a party this February too!
