Bozemans Daily Deals
by Lindsey Keeley
It's no secret that Bozeman has a plethora of things to do. Because of that, the challenge is affording to do it all! After a few years in this entertaining little town, I've found a few budget-friendly deals for every day of the week. Let's get started!
Bicycle Maintenance Class- Bozeman Bike Kitchen is hosting a series of hands-on bicycle maintenance classes each Monday through June. Classes are FREE and open to all from 7 pm - 8 pm. Each week covers a different topic, including introductions to the drivetrain and brakes, chain replacement and repair, and wheel truing. Visit www.bozemanbikekitchen.org for a full schedule and to learn about the nonprofit located at 2104 Industrial Drive (at the corner of Griffin Drive).
Burger and Beer Night- You can't cook a deal like this at home! Get any of the large Spectators burgers (complete with the hefty helping of fries or tater tots) and a pint of beer for $8.95. This is a particular bonus if you're trying to catch a big game as they have TVs throughout the restaurant. And it's conveniently located next to the university. See the address, menu and sports news on their website, www.spectatorsmt.com.
Trivia at Rocking R- Everyone likes to show off their smarts and trivia night at the Rocking R Bar has the best prizes and deals in town. Simply show up and you're entered to play! First place wins $50, second a $25 bar tab and third a pitcher of beer. And don't forget the $2.50 draughts throughout! That means you can have your Map Brewery Midas Crush, Neptune's River Nymph or Madison River's Copper John for less than a Bud Light. Trivia begins at 8 pm at Rocking R, located downtown.
Books & Babies and Baby Bistro at the Public Library- Bring your infant for story time during Books & Babies at 10 am and 1 pm or attend Baby Bistro for breastfeeding support at 11 am. Both are free and a great opportunity to bond with your child. The Public Library is located on the East end of Main Street. For all events, see their website www.bozemanlibrary.org.
Music on Main- This major Bozeman tradition can't be missed! Though it only runs from late June to mid-August, Music on Main is the hot place to be Thursday summer evenings. Music from bands in and out of Montana play free to the public from 7pm-8:30 pm, but food trucks and other vendors are out from 6:30pm-8:30 pm. Check Downtown Bozeman's site for upcoming details!
Free Entrance at the Children's Museum- Every second Friday (the 12th for May) is a free entrance into the wonderful world that is the Children's Museum, located on East Babcock St. Tarantino's also offering $1 pizza slices at the museum. Check out the SteamLab, explore Bug Hotel or uncover the hidden world of nature's circles with your little one.
Free Family Movie at The Ellen Theatre- Yep, you just show up and watch! The Ellen is playing Bambi on May 19. The Theatre also has a "Pony Pass" on sale for the next two weeks. $50 for entrance to all 13 of their summer westerns! That's less than $4 a movie!
Tour the National Parks- Saturday is a wonderful time for a road trip, particularly when your destination is Yellowstone National Park. If you're just looking for a 1-7 day pass, each car is $30. An annual pass is $60. Take a full car of folks for a hike or simply enjoy the beauty through the windows and you're down to $10 or less each! Get the most bang for your buck by pitching in on an interagency pass so you can also tour Grand Teton, National Park. 1-7 day pass for both is $40 and a full year is $80. If you're in the military, entrance to both is free. Check out the full range of pricing options here.
Live Music at Bozeman Hot Springs- Does it get more relaxing than soaking in a warm pool while listening to live music? I doubt it. Refresh your body, mind, and ears at Bozeman Hot Springs in Four Corners. Music start at 7 pm.
The single-day price for music nights are the same as the rest of the week, ranging from $4 for an infant, $7 for MSU students and $8.50 for 14 and older. There are a number of passes and punch cards available here. And see who's playing here.
It's impossible to name all of the great options this town has to offer, but this list is sure to get you started in enjoying Bozeman's variety.
