Hello SBX, Bye Salad Creations

Double-dose of restaurant-y news:

- Trib is reporting that “Starbucks will build a second location in Great Falls this spring…3053 10th Ave. S., the site of a former gas station where most recently Montana Marble & Granite has displayed merchandise.”

Hmm.. I really, really, really expected that if SBX ever opened a second full-service store in Great Falls, it would be on the NW side of town. Not complaining — just surprised at the location. And it’s about time that GF had at least as many SBX as Helena, dammit!

- Salad Creations is closing — sad. Obviously I never ate there, but every now and then I’d pick up a fancy salad for my wife.

And the staff was always super-friendly and energetic. Wonder what might go in that location now…


SBX in Albertsons

Stopped by the Albertsons on 10th Avenue South for the first time since the new Starbucks location opened up – looks way fancier than I thought it would be.

But dang it…why won’t SBX open up on the NW side of town? I have no doubt that the NW side of town could support a free-standing SBX, but even the Albertsons over there would be a great location for one of these mini-stores.

Verismo = Want

Gave the new Verismo machine a test run at Starbucks this morning…the verdict: YES.

I do appreciate the Keurig machine that sits on our counter, but the strongest version of a Keurig cuppa just doesn’t have the same kick that a real espresso shot delivers.

This Verismo, however…based on the single shot that I sampled…did indeed appear to do the trick. A few shots from this baby every morning could save me a lot of gas (and time) in the long run.

And the little Verismo pods are adorable!

Dream Bar

Speaking of Starbucks…whatever you do, do NOT refer to this tasty delight as a “Rice Krispies Treat.” Because it clearly is not. It is a “Marshmallow Dream Bar.”
