SBX Opens!

After a little more than 9 years, Great Falls is now home to its SECOND free-standing Starbucks store! It’s on the NW corner of the intersection at 10th Avenue South and 32nd Street (across from Van’s).

I peeked in on Saturday afternoon as the crew was prepping and sampling and tasting — they are all so excited!

AND…they don’t *officially* open until 6 a.m. on Sunday (Sep 28), but they WILL be having a “soft opening” from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. TONIGHT (Saturday) and will be serving up FREE drinks.

So if you’re out and about this evening, you should stop by and check it out and grab a free cuppa! Tell ’em “10-shot Dave” sent ya!

New Starbucks in Great Falls!

“The Love I Lost”

One of the greatest songs, and one of the greatest vocalists ever — and I’m not usually a fan of remixes, but this one is utterly amazing, and actually elevates the song.

It’s Teddy Pendergrass fronting for Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, and the remix is by Dimitri From Paris.

Teddy’s been gone for more than four years, but his music will live forever.

Listen:

And damn, but I sure wish we had a soul/R&B radio station in Great Falls. We’ve got Sirius XM at home, and I alternate between channel 33 (First Wave) and channel 49 (Soul Town), but it’s just not quite the same as having a “terrestrial” station right here.
