The “Bone” Squirrel

We enjoy heading down to Ulm periodically to enjoy a dinner at the Beef N Bone Steakhouse – arguably the best steak in Cascade County. My choice is almost always the TOMAHAWK — a 36 to 48-ounce ribeye (bone-in) that is basically perfect. Once I have devoured most (or sometimes all!) of the meat, the huge bone then comes home where it becomes a chew-toy for Ziggy. He gnaws on it in the living room,…


Angus Bar in Cascade

It’s been far too long since my lovely bride and I made the beautiful drive down to Cascade, so today we did. We waved to all of the animals we saw along the way — many cows, half-dozen deer, a few sheep — and a small gathering of antelope on the way home 🙂 We also saw what initially appeared to be a small fox roaming in the parking lot of the Cascade school, but…


Coming Soon: Eden Market

The Eden Market south of Great Falls is opening…soon. They had originally planned to open this month, but apparently there is a problem regarding zoning. I stopped by a few days ago, and remodeling is well underway: The Eden Market is what used to be known as the Outback Market; it’s about 4 miles south of Overlook (Flag Hill) Drive on Lower River Road.

Bison Day!

I recently had one of the most wonderful experiences of my life – I got to visit some bison! Roy and Shellie have a small bison ranch near Great Falls, and they were kind enough to let us visit a few weeks ago. The young bison are out front; they are about a year old. They absolutely *love* eating loaves of bread (from JJs bakery!). The smallest one is named Goliath, and he was a…


Please, Please

Hand-written sign posted above the urinals in an eatery – any guesses which one? NOTE: do not let the sign discourage you – trust me, this place has the BEST BURGERS in Cascade County. Also kick-ass French fries, and an internet-connected jukebox that lets me groove to my heart’s content. PLUS super-friendly service. Seriously. Yes, the sign is admittedly pretty yucky, but I ain’t picking places to eat based on the restrooms.
