The Hangout

Well, this certainly looks promising: The Hangout. I’m not sure when it opened, but it’s fairly recent, I believe. Plenty of activities for everyone: billiards, air-hockey, internet access, foosball, snacks & beverages, darts, videogames, and more. No drugs, no alcohol, no smoking, no gambling. The Hangout is located at 5501 9th Avenue South, and you can call them at 453.1099 for more information. Definitely plan to check this out! UPDATE: sadly, The Hangout didn’t last…it…

Open For Business

Atlanta Locksmith Finally! The northeast section of River Drive, also known as the Northeast Bypass, is scheduled to open at noon on Thursday, June 30, after nearly a year of detours, gravel, and dust for Great Falls drivers. This will make it much easier to get to the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, as well as local businesses that have been dramatically affected by the road closure, such as Best Resting Motel, Big Sky Animal…


Trib Feature on Blogging

Just finished up an interview with Rich Ecke, a features writer for the Great Falls Tribune. Basic stuff: how did I get into blogging, why do I enjoy it, etc. Also discussed what makes Montana bloggers so special, how many Montana bloggers are there, and such. I mentioned Miss Bonkrood, who was the very first Montana blogger that I read, back in 2002 before I moved here, and Rich mentioned AJ Tooley, who was also…
