Yep – we have winners! The winner of the new iPod Shuffle is Lindey Sellers, and the winner of the “Movie Stars and Rattlesnakes” book is ReAnn Rothwell! Thanks to everyone who entered!
Lindey’s reason for loving Great Falls is that we get to experience all four seasons – to which I will add, sometimes in the same day! And ReAnn’s reasons for loving Great Falls can be seen on her very own blog – that’s right, ReAnn is the newest member of the Great Falls blogosphere! It’s a combination business/personal blog, and she’s already got some good tips on getting your financial documents in order. Head on over there and welcome her – leave a comment and tell her that Dave sent ya!
In other news: we ate at Monty’s (A Taste Of The West) last week…and it was…um…interesting. I’ll get a full review up later this weekend.
Thought it would be fun to try Boston’s The Gourmet Pizza this evening…but after I found a place to park and walked in, I saw that it was packed and realized it might take a while to get seated. So I asked the hostess for a ballpark estimate on the wait time, and she winced and said it could be up to two hours. Two hours.
Whoa. So it was off to Ryan’s Station for dinner. We’ll try again once things settle down a bit, or maybe during a “slow” time of day. If there is one, yet. So…any of you folks had a chance to try Boston’s yet? How was it?
Yes, I heard about the allegations of abuse and/or cruelty at the animal shelter. No, I don’t know if the allegations are true. I do know two of the people involved, however, and I would be very surprised if they (a) were directly responsible for any abuse, or (b) allowed others to abuse the animals. I will say this, however – it sure is frustrating to have so many controversies in our community about the animal shelter. Is this unique to Great Falls, or do other towns have similar problems?
UPDATE, Thursday morning: Susan Overfield has plenty to say about the allegations.
It’s official: K tipped us off in the comments yesterday, and now the Trib has announced that Boston’s The Gourmet Pizza is open for business! The name of this place still confounds me, but that won’t stop me from giving it a try sometime this week. Do any of you “early adopters” have a first-blush review after eating there? Food, service, atmosphere – tell us what you thought.
It’s located on 7th Street just behind Mountain West Bank (south side of 10th Ave South).
*expletive deleted* Sorry, gang – while performing my routine “housecleaning” of my blogs this morning (deleting spam comments and trackbacks), I accidentally deleted several legitimate comments. Serves me right for trying to do anything constructive before the coffee had finished brewing.
If you can’t make the CMR concert/art exhibit tonight, you should consider what is likely going to be an amazing vocal/jazz concert featuring the Jeni Fleming Trio will be held at the Great Falls High auditorium. This is good stuff – the trio is recognized nationally – listen for yourself. Call 455-8514 for tickets, or you might still be able to purchase them online.
