One man’s reasons for loving Billings

Rich man

Poking around Montana Mint, which we are also featuring as our Website of the Week (see left rail on our home page), we came across “Big on Billings: 7 Reasons Billings Does it Better.” It’s hard to argue with the list of reasons (though we might dispute the assertion that the Bighorn River is only “30 minutes away”). And here’s our favorite:

“Lilac made the list of the top 100 American-cuisine restaurants in the nation by Open Table. “And to everyone in Great Falls whose idea of fine dining is unlimited breadsticks, yes we have an Olive Garden (and you won’t find us there).” Continue Reading →
