Underage is understatement at popular Missoula bar


MISSOULA, Mont. - On various Friday nights, kids and toddlers overrun the Top Hat in downtown Missoula.

Tonight, Amy Martin and Missoula's environmentally conscious Coyote Choir performed for the crowd of all ages.

Onesies are well within dress code parameters.   

Top Hat owner Nick Checota tells NBC Montana social events including all members of the family are needed in Missoula, where parents can have a drink and still include their children.  "It's Family Friendly Friday.  Amy Martin and her choir is here performing.  It's just an all-around kid-oriented good time," says Checota.

The entertainment offered is appropriate for all ages on Family Friendly Friday and a full menu is available.

In other upcoming events at the Top Hat, Missoula opera singer and University of Montana senior Neila Getz is performing on Sunday night.  Neila has qualified for a prestigious opera competition in Italy, but doesn't have enough funds yet to travel to the competition. 

Getz will perform opera and cabaret at the Top Hat 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Sunday, May 5.  Any donations received will go toward her travel expenses.  Getz still needs to earn $3,000.
