Discounted drinks. $77 million in ballot measures. People dressed up as sewer infrastructure.

The Jackson Hole News&Guide has partnered with Young Professionals of the Tetons to put on a different kind of forum ahead of the Nov. 5 specific purpose excise tax election. Join us for the Halloween-themed “Hot Seat Happy Hour: Spooky SPET Edition” starting at 5:30 p.m. today in The Wort Hotel’s Silver Dollar Showroom.

Hear local experts step into the “Hot Seat” to discuss projects like $22 million for improvements to the Jackson/Teton County Recreation Center and $5.5 million for affordable housing.

Bring your questions — and wear your costumes for a chance to win prizes like gift certificates to Teton Mountaineering and Jackson Hole Cinema free movie passes.

Well drinks, house wine and beers are $1 off until 7 p.m., as well as 50% off featured whiskeys. Young Professionals of the Tetons is also providing some snacks.
