Great Find At Billings Thrift Store!
Part of my Saturday routine is to walk from my loft apartment on Montana Avenue to my favorite local coffee roasting company downtown to get my iced mocha. On the way though I always make a couple of pit stops at St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Store at the corner of Montana and 27th st...
Daily Poker Tournaments In Montana Are Coming Soon!
If you're a fan of live poker tournaments like I am then you owe a debt of gratitude to Rep. Pat Noonan, D-Ramsay, who introduced House Bill 141 on behalf of the Gaming Advisory Council on January 15th. That bill was recently passed. Part of the bill, aimed at increasing pot-limits in cash poke…
