Sorry, this message isn't about dinosaurs, but for the listers who are
attending the conference.
I've gotten several requests for info on places to eat in Bozeman, so I
thought I'd post to the list to help everyone out. Bear in mind that these
are just my opinion and I invite anyone to add to the list. Here goes:
Santa Fe Reds - within walking distance of the Holiday Inn with Polla
Wontons to die for!
Applebee's - also within walking distance of the Holiday Inn, but across a
very busy road. Great drink specials though! ;)
McKenzie River Pizza - downtown, so not within walking distance to the
hotel, but a 20 minute walk from campus. The Bobcat pizza is great.
O'Brien's - also downtown, but further away than McKenzie River, so I
wouldn't suggest walking there. They have wonderful breakfast specials, but
can be slightly pricy.
International Cafe - in the Emerson Art Building, not too far from campus.
Truly excellent food and atmosphere. The prices are good too.
Burger Bob's - downtown not far from McKenzie River. Gotta love a place
with a sign in the window saying "Sorry, We're Open"! The chicken
sandwiches, onion rings and vanilla shakes are marvelous!
The Corral - in Big Sky (40 miles from Bozeman). I've never been there, but
my friend says they have the best steak and seafood in Montana. She said
that the price is right also.
Bobcat Grille, Lounge, Cafe (something like that) - in the lower level of
the SUB. I always enjoyed their sandwiches, but they are usually extremely
busy over lunch, so don't count of eating there.
There is also a chinese restaurant out by the mall that I liked. I'm not
sure but it may have been called The Great Wall.
The Pickle Barrel - located right behind Johnstone Hall (the dorm where I
lived), it has the biggest sandwiches for around $5 that you can get
anywhere. Or if you'd rather have ice cream, for under $2 you can get a
waffle cone so full that you can barely eat it.
The Bistro - way too expensive for what you get. Never been there myself
since I was a poor college student while living there.
The Wok - my friend had an internship as a health inspector last semester
and was appalled by the kitchen there. Go at your own risk.
Pizza Hut - (the one by campus) same as above.
Of course, if you're in the mood to drink, there is the Bar-muda triangle by
campus. Three lively bars all within walking distance. The Molly Brown has
a ton of pool tables, dart boards and lottery machines.
I'm sure there are more, but I can't seem to think of any at this moment.
I'd also like to mention that the museum is only technically on campus -
it's actually a 10 or 15 minute walk from the SUB (where the talks are being
held). I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up on that so on the first
day they don't get there right before the talks start and then have to beat
feet to make it on time.
I hope this helps. And I'd love to hear from other MSU alumni of where they
When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride,
He shouts to scare the monster, who will often turn aside.
But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail,
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.
