Sheep Pic from Eddie’s Supper Club

This treasure from Eddie’s Supper Club is now hanging over our bed. Yay! It was always my favorite at Eddie’s.

A few weeks after Eddie’s closed, my wife noticed that it and several others were being sold on one of the Great Falls classified pages on Facebook — she jumped on it, and the next day we zipped over to Eddie’s to pick it up.

The very nice lady that sold it to us – a daughter of one of the founders, I believe – also said that a gentleman had come by to buy the booth that he and his wife had dined at for decades. Awwww.

My tribute to Eddie’s:

Farewell, Eddie’s

Eddie’s Supper Club

Eddie’s Supper Club will soon be no more, sadly. It’s been sold, and it appears that it will become a “sports bar.”

I know a lot of people who absolutely love Eddie’s food — campfire steak, trout, burgers — and while I enjoyed the food, it wasn’t my favorite.

Don’t get me wrong – the food was certainly tasty, but what made Eddie’s so special to me was the atmosphere.

Walking in to that rectangle, white building was like walking through a time portal: the carpet, the decor, the lighting, and most of all, the piano bar.

Thanks for the wonderful memories, Eddie’s! You will be missed.

Friday Linkage!

As always, Jack The Blogger has some interesting insights and analysis of stuff both local and beyond.

Jablag visited Eddie’s Supper Club in 2008 (one of our favorites!); his review includes a mouth-watering picture.

George & Geri are visiting our fair town and asked the question: how many falls in Great Falls?

James Waddell is a singer/songwriter here in Great Falls, and he penned a tune called “Wearing White.”

And my favorite news story of the week (not just because it’s my byline!) takes place not in Great Falls, but down near Roundup, where two baby goats were rescued from a 60-foot high bridge!
