Missoula did not disappoint the second time around….like one of those wilder western college towns, the city comes alive at night with plenty of live music which is listed weekly in the local Independents well as the Entertainment section of Friday’s Missoulian.

Rare to find a town on the trip that offers so many live music and dining options, Missoula had it all. We made our way over to a funky café that offered numerous vegetarian choices and their local Moose Drool Beer. From here, we hit just about every pub, bar, nightclub and dive in the town we could find, starting with the Iron Horse Brewpub which housed a fairly young student crowd.

We explored the cozy wood-walled Old Post on Spruce Street, Jays Bar which is a smokey venue that plays punk music and ended up at the Top Hat on Front Street, which, a fun place with a large crowd game to dance to its bluegrass, bluesy, rock live bands.


Aside from the music, and the eclectic college student crowd, I was most amused by the graffiti on the walls in the “girls room.” Paul wondered what took me so long but hell, I could have spent another hour in there just reading women’s thoughts, feelings, expressions – all rites of passage worth observing and recording.
