It would be genuinely difficult to find a Montana State alum who hasn't spent some celebratory time in this historic Bozeman home. Many a keg has passed through it's doors and it might actually be the most common denominator among generations of Bobcats.
It's never pleasant to see a local business close it's doors, but some hit closer to home than others. Recently, one in particular on east Main Street is actually making me emotional - something I wouldn't expect from a business like this.
It's incredibly easy. Parts of Montana are already a tinderbox for so many topics - housing, urban camping, politics, cost of living, etc. Throw in a chain restaurant with a significant political, religious, and social slant and you've got yourself an old fashioned screaming match.
Well, that experiment (for the most part) didn't go over very well. At least the post 'Silent Saturday' comments would indicate that the vast majority of folks were NOT PLEASED about the request for silence during rec soccer games this past Saturday.
