Hello SBX, Bye Salad Creations

Double-dose of restaurant-y news:

Trib is reporting that “Starbucks will build a second location in Great Falls this spring…3053 10th Ave. S., the site of a former gas station where most recently Montana Marble & Granite has displayed merchandise.”

Hmm.. I really, really, really expected that if SBX ever opened a second full-service store in Great Falls, it would be on the NW side of town. Not complaining — just surprised at the location. And it’s about time that GF had at least as many SBX as Helena, dammit!

Salad Creations is closing — sad. Obviously I never ate there, but every now and then I’d pick up a fancy salad for my wife.

And the staff was always super-friendly and energetic. Wonder what might go in that location now…
