Billings Best Spots Photo Contest

BILLINGS BEST SPOTS PHOTO CONTEST- Submit a Photo of yourself out and about in Billings and you could win a $100 Rimrock Mall Give Style American Express Gift Card for you and a second $100 Rimrock Mall Gift Card for a friend!
Your photo can be at a Billings restaurant or bar, at the park, at an event, anywhere in Billings except at home! Post your pic and then get your friends to vote for it. The contest runs through July 23rd. The sooner you enter, the more time you have to get votes.

Right now, Big J (from Hot 101.9's Big J Show) is winning with a Graffiti pic (apparently some jokesters spray painted this not so nice saying across town). Now, I'm not against Big J winning (and the person he is giving the second card to is certainly deserving) but the title of the contest is "Billings Best Spots". Can we really let graffiti on a fence win? Enter your photo and give Big J some competition.

The night starts off with a women only pre-party at 7pm. Great food, drinks and cabanas for rent. Then at 9pm the guys are welcome to join for the entertainment. There will be a full bar and a chance for prizes. Tickets are $35 for the entire evening and just $10 for the 9pm portion.

I would totally go to this event. It sounds like such a fun time. Funny enough, Dustin and I will be in Las Vegas the very same weekend and the New York New York Dueling Pianos are on our entertainment list! Would have loved to see them in Billings too!

The Hangover


There are chick flicks and there are guy movies; and this is definitely a guy movie. This is the type of show where you start the night with a few drinks with your boys and then go see. It's got a ton of laughs; mostly male humor, so you might want to leave your wife or girlfriend at home. And believe me this is an R rated movie, so you definitely don't want to take the kiddies. It all starts when some friends decide to throw a bachelor party for their buddy in Las Vegas; they wake up with the worst hangover and don’t remember their whatever-happens-in-Vegas-stays-in-Vegas night. They spend the entire show back tracking and attempting to find their lost friend the bachelor to be.

There really isn’t a star studded cast, but that doesn’t stop anything from being absolutely HILARIOUS;Ed Helms (Andy Bernard on "The Office"); Bradley Cooper; and the man that steals the show – Zach Galifianakis.

I have nothing bad to say about this movie.

I will probably go see it again. GO SEE IT NOW!!
