Around this time last year one of my favorite places to go shopping for books, films, games and other goodies closed up shop, and it's been a mystery of what could go in the space next. I figured that because this is Bozeman that it would probably happen pretty quick. With the great location and huge space, who wouldn't want to take over that spot?

Well, it's been almost a year and there has been no rumor of anything going in at that space. It's weird, you would think a business would want to take advantage of that huge area for something Bozeman needs. Here are a few options I would love to see go in:

    Bowling Alley

    I love the Bozeman Bowl but they are always slammed with people, and if you just want to walk in and bowl, it's hit and miss. If a new bowling alley opened up at the old Hastings location not only is there tons of room for a bunch of lanes but it has great parking and can fit quite a few people in there as well.

    Dave and Busters

    This is my personal choice and I think it would fit pretty well in Bozeman. With our growing population, especially young adults, I think this would be a huge hit. It's essentially an adult Chuck E Cheese but they also have fantastic food.

    Concert House

    Could this turn into a new venue in Bozeman? Possibly. Whoever has the money and time could honestly make that a great mid-size venue that can hold a lot of people and the acoustics in there aren't too bad.
