ELMO’S Highwood Bar

The Highwood Bar (previously) has a new owner, a new name, and even a new menu! The sale just happened a few days ago — Dave and his wife (both retired Air Force) bought it, and are doing some mild renovation and updating.

And best of all — in addition to the regular and legendary Friday Steak Night, they are now serving a few other items ALL THE TIME!

So on Sunday, my wife and I took the gorgeous, relaxing 30-minute drive out to Highwood and for the first time ever, ate something OTHER than steak at what is now called Elmo’s Highwood Bar. Dave said that Elmo was the name of the original owner decades ago, and he thought it would be neat to add that to the name.

Krista enjoyed a delicious tri-tip sandwich (which I sampled – mmmmm), and I had a bacon-double-cheeseburger. Folks, trust me: it was the best damn burger I’ve had in several years — juicy, flavorful, just the right size (heh), and the bacon was amazing. Think it was the best burger I’ve had since our last visit to Square Butte.

And Krista said the hot slaw was – as always – beyond delicious.

Dave talked a bit about some of the changes he’s making, and getting the bar involved in some community events, and it sounds pretty awesome. Can’t wait to head back.

SO: like ‘em on Facebook, call ahead for a Friday night steak dinner, and definitely stop by for a burger on your next day-trip!

BEHOLD: the bacon-double-cheeseburger!

Gilt Edge

Two things: first, until today, I had never heard of Gilt Edge — apparently it is now a ghost town, east/NE of Lewistown, but once held promise as a gold town. Any of you ever visited?

Second — holy shit, Angelfire is still around?

“Be Happy & Buy Polish”

Did you know that there’s a blogger in (or near) Billings who focuses on nail polish? It’s true.

Seriously – if you have a passion for something, you can blog about it.

A pretty simple statement of purpose: “Nail polish and other beauty products make me happy, buying them does too. If you’re here with me, I hope nail polish makes you happy too.”

Well, I don’t wear nail polish, but seeing interesting designs is pretty cool :-)

Rerun: Montana Barbies

Saw some similar stuff the last few days on Facebook, and a spike in traffic to this entry from 2008, so here it is again for your enjoyment

Oh dear. Looks like Great Falls is taking it on the chin again, this time in Barbie form. Some Montana blogger – not sure where – has posted a series of Montana Barbies, complete with pictures, which are pretty darn funny…even if our beloved community of Great Falls is portrayed in an unflattering light.

GREAT FALLS BARBIE: This recently paroled Barbie comes with a 9mm handgun, a Ray Lewis knife, a Chevy truck with dark tinted windows, and a meth Lab Kit. This model is only available after dark and must be paid for in cash (preferably small, untraceable bills) unless you are a cop, then we don’t know what you are talking about.

Can you spot the Great Falls Barbie in this collection? Or the Whitefish, or Billings, or Missoula (ha!), or Wolf Point?
