    Speaking of sustainability ………….

    N. 1st. St. is one of the best streets in Missoula for playing chicken.
    The game is at it’s best during the a.m. and p.m. rush, but you can play any time of the day or night. All you need is a vehicle coming at you in the other direction.
    Some folk’s pull to the side, others just punch it.
    The game got good when the gold-dust got its cluster development- parking space waiver from the city.
    The game will be even better when the K-hole is up and running.
    Can’t wait to see the game when a few pints of cold smoke are added.
    Cheers!

  2. Excellent plug… nothing shameless about free food, free drink and sustainable practices. Bravo.
    Don’t forget to tell folks that we are hiring a new Executive Director for the Sustainable Business Council too.
    Application deadline is May 17th!
    Rock on, Mr. Talbot.
