I had to post about other businesses that I'm grateful we have, just because
Main St. Grind, because of the atmosphere, treats, ciabatta bread and Thai soup
Kafe Utza, because of the cinnamon twists
Cattail Junction, and I'm thankful for lay-away!
Rib and Chop House (Ahi tuna - yum, and that sinful caramel apple dessert - to die for!)
McDonald's, because of the $1 drinks and because there are enough great people to make up for the rude and/or slow ones
Albertson's, because they special order all the Indian and Asian foods we need, and because I can buy nori and sushi rice right off the shelf
New Hunan, if for no other reason than the walnut shrimp. It's heavenly! No, it's not the best Chinese restaurant ever, but I like the overhauled buffet.
Pizza Hut, because of the salad bar
Pedal Power, because of (or in spite of?
) the iconic Miles and all his kindness to our family
7th St. Mercantile, because of the costume rentals, music and antiques
ROCKS, because the teens who work there are awesome with the kids
Iron Horse, because of the parmesan-crusted cod and appetizers
Crazy Apron Cake Studio, because of the amazing cake and cupcake creations. Makes me want to renew my vows just so I can have another wedding cake!
Studio M, because the people are great, they fill a need, and because they weren't afraid to open up and "do it right" from the get-go.
Dairy Queen - French Silk Pie Blizzards make me weak in the knees...
Blank Canvas, because one day I will actually take a class
Montana Theater, because of all the awesome art deco-ness and the cheap treats and ticket prices, and because they let me bring in my own drink because Pepsi is nasty.
DEAP, because they provide great services to our community.
Creative Corner - good prices, nice people
The library - I know it's not a business, but I'm so glad it's there.
I really miss Taco Bell, K-Mart, Good Things, Cherry Pickins', Copper Thimble, NZ Shoes, the dollar store, Geri's Cakewalk and Donut Run, and JC Penney.
