I honestly don’t understand this level of hatred.
It’s cool to see a new website promoting Great Falls has launched — ChooseGreatFalls.com, aimed at promoting jobs in Great Falls — but a little disappointing to see that the GFDA used a Helena-based company to create the site.
Not to take away from Edge Marketing or our capital city – they look pretty legit and their work looks good…and going with a Helena company is better than an out-of-state one, right?
Pretty much the most awesome birthday a guy could ever hope for!
As much as I have loved Great Falls radio, it has fallen too far in the last couple of years, and I *needed* to have more options. To the rescue — my wife, with the AWESOME gift of a Sirius-XM radio for my car! Check out this action:
I will still listen to Great Falls radio occasionally, but holy cow — having satellite radio in the car is just…beyond happy.
Then some amazing, thoughtful, loving, and kind well-wishes from family and friends, primarily via Facebook. All VERY much appreciated — especially this one from my amazing friend Kelly (owner of Treat Animal Wellness down in Boz!) — this has got to be the MOST AMAZING BIRTHDAY CARD / GRAPHIC / IMAGE EVER CREATED IN ALL OF HISTORY. Thank you Kelly!
(Remember, kids — there is never NOT a good time for DOGE.)
Then I got asked to do a voice-over for a TV commercial — pretty much one of my dreams in life — woohoo! No word yet on when it will air, will let you know.
Then off to a tasty lobster dinner at Dante’s with my wife — excellent service from Ryan, a former co-worker and all-around great guy — and who surprised me with this sinfully delicious chocolate-lava slice of cake!
Now THIS is a nifty “sponsored post” on Facebook that got my attention — “We dare you to find a better burger in great falls.”
It was actually brought to my attention by my wife when she was cruising Facebook last night — she asked me where the Bighorn Bar & Grill is at, and I thought for a minute, and said I didn’t know. She said, “Well, you liked it on Facebook…”
Uh…I did? Turns out that I did indeed — back when it was called Mary’s Midway! It’s the place along Vaughn Frontage Road kind of across the street from Cattlemen’s Cut.
We’d been to Mary’s a few times — good stuff, nice relaxed atmosphere — but not in the last few years. But now apparently it’s got a new owner and a new name — very cool.
So – the Bighorn has issued a challenge! Can’t wait to head out there this weekend and try a burger!
We enjoyed lunch on Friday at the Family Affair restaurant — our first time there!
It’s tucked along the east side of the Snyder’s/Van’s building along 7th Avenue North between 25th and 26th Street. It’s small inside — only 11 tables, very cozy. Nothing fancy — just home-cooked meals. The waitress said that they have been there for 40 years, but based on talking with some friends and co-workers, it’s pretty much a hidden gem — not a lot of people know about it.
