A beautiful Sunday in the Bozeangeles area, After a morning walk with wife and kid and the second lawn mowing of the year I escaped downtown for an exploration of life on main street. It was quiet, the college kids have fled after exams and the locals are up in the mountains, on the river or in church . A couple years ago the downtown was rocked by a gas main explosion that flattened a block and killed one young lady.
In my bar of choice there was a quite vocal group discussing the hunt for post ski season and off season jobs. I know how hard it is to find retail work in this town but it was interesting to hear the Anthony Bourdain crowd talk about the job hunt .
the upshot of the story was, what places to stay the heck away from and who was checking into rehab so their old employer might be looking for a new bartender or line cook. There are a lot of stories in the city. Some of the real ones are crazier than the imagined ones.
