Bluegrass On The Bay

If you want to attend the Bluegrass On The Bay festival on Friday (July 11th), you might be able to get in for free in exchange for an hour or two of work:

As many of you know, Friday is Bluegrass on the Bay, and their organizing committee is looking for volunteers be gate counters, ticket sellers, and beer sellers. The shifts are approximately an hour and provide you with a free pass into the event, which would otherwise cost $25. If you are interested, contact Tom Figarelle @ 788-1756 or at

Not a bad deal!

Tuesday Stuff

Some sad news: I heard that Monty’s A Taste Of The West, the restaurant on Fox Farm & 10th Avenue South that used to be Elmer’s, will be closing soon. No word on whether it will become another restaurant. With so much new competition just around the corner, I think that location is doomed, unless Denny’s or IHOP takes over.

On a more positive note, Rob notes that Cold Stone Creamery will be opening in the Marketplace soon. Never heard of it, but it sure sounds cool (pun – get it?).

How about a free violin concert from an internationally-known musician? Lior Kaminetsky will be performing in Great Falls tomorrow (Wednesday) at the YWCA. GF Girl has the details.

GF Scanner is selling a ’97 Dodge Neon; good on mileage.

This is one of the cool things about having a community blog. We now understand who Joshua was, and are able to appreciate how much he meant to some folks.

Looking for someone to mow a couple of yards and possibly remove some downed tree limbs. Do you know a cash-hungry teen interested in earning a few bucks? Let me know.
