❓ Trivia

After the NFL's 2023 season wrapped up last Sunday, culminating in the Chiefs' consecutive Super Bowl victories, how many NFL teams have achieved back-to-back Super Bowl wins throughout the league's history? Bonus if you can you list each of these teams along with the years they won.

Everything Bagels

The thought of Bozeman doesn't usually conjure images of delicious New York-style bagels. Yet, Zoe Fotinos' mission to create the best artisan New York-style bagel is surprisingly located right here in town, 2,175.5 miles away from NYC.

Boiling the best New York-style bagel wasn't something Fotinos had anticipated. After briefly pursuing biomedical engineering at MSU and deciding that lab work wasn't her calling, Fotinos' role as a local pastry chef, combined with her love of skiing, inspired her to try something out of the box.

Bridger Bagels was born out of a simple need to bypass the morning queue at local bakeries and to make first chair at Bridger Bowl with friends. What began as a generous gesture of making hot sandwiches for friends and neighbors quickly transformed, with those same individuals offering to pay Fotinos for her bagels. A hobby quickly became a thriving business endeavor.

Fotinos says the business exploded in 2023. She was splitting time between four farmers' markets a week, plus offering a delivery service on Saturday mornings.

2024 could knead into shape as a breakout year for Bridger Bagels. Fotinos tells us she is officially in the market for a food truck and a semi-permanent location where she can serve the Bozeman crowds daily.

You can find all the ordering and delivery options, in addition to the ingredients used and toppings available, by heading over to their website at bridgerbagels.com.

It's the time again.... the weekend. If you're looking for something other than running 4 different movies at once on your Apple Vision Pro we've got some ideas for you:

  • If you've read every newsletter of ours, congrats this first event comes as no surprise. We all need to laugh more. Get your tickets to see Friday night's stand up with Eddie Ifft at Last Best Comedy. Show starts @ 7pm.
  • Your fridge is running low on fresh produce. Head on over to the Winter Farmers' Market between 9am-12pm on Saturday.
  • After eating that mid afternoon salad make your way over to the Rialto for a FREE concert with local legend Jenn + Juice. Doors open @ 7pm.
  • If the free beats at the Rialto isn't your scene, it would be a mistake to miss out seeing the iconic comedian Paula Poundstone (regular panelist on NPR’s comedy news quiz, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!) at the Ellen Theatre. Show starts @ 8pm.
