Finally! I made it to the world-famous Sip-n-Dip lounge last Saturday evening! Krista and I enjoyed a good time at one of Great Falls’ most famous places as we helped Kelly and her husband Jason celebrate Kelly’s birthday. I sipped on cola and water while they all dove into a “fishbowl,” and we munched on some chips and salsa and cheese-sticks from Clark & Lewie’s eatery (downstairs). The decor was – as promised – delightfully whimsical, but unfortunately Piano Pat was not playing; she was a bit under the weather, so we had to suffer through some recorded “adult contemporary” music. Seems to me that in the absence of Pat, the Sip-n-Dip should play some Martin Denny or other such lounge/tiki music!
And speaking of the Sip-n-Dip, check out what some true tiki-lovers had to say about it (scroll way down) as they capped their “It’s A Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki World” adventure with a trip to the Sip-n-Dip!
On Sunday, Krista and I enjoyed a lazy drive down Hwy 89, passing through Monarch and stopping at a cool antique (collectible) shop in Neihart. On the way back, we enjoyed some delicious burgers at The Lazy Doe. A very good day.

Tomorrow’s “sidewalk sale” will be downtown, too – not just at the mall. I will be lending a hand at Homestead Treasures, a really cool collectibles and antiques store, located at 320 Central Avenue, from about 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. Stop by and say hi (I’ll be wearing my GreaterFalls.com t-shirt)!
It’s time! The 2007 Montana State Fair is upon us – definitely will be heading down there. I enjoy sampling the delectable foodstuffs and seeing the many vendors hawking their wares…but you all know that my favorite part of the Fair is the animals! So how many of you will be heading over to the Fair, and what do you think your favorite part will be?
