Darts and Writers at Crush Wine Bar in Whitefish, Montana, A Bistro A Day, March 23

I put it in my head that for this edition of A Bistro A Day, I had to find a Bistro, a Wine Bar with a Literary Bent.

I was about to give up when I found Crush Wine Bar in small town Whitefish, Montana.

No combination bookstore-wine bar here though I know there are some places that fit that profile.

No website that I know of either but a Crush Wine Bar Facebook page.

Here's what they stand for (in their own words):

"An innovative new bar on Central Avenue in Whitefish, Montana, specializing in an eclectic selection of fun affordable wines, handcrafted and specialty beers with a lounge like atmosphere featuring great music, desserts and appetizers."

Where's the book connection?

In collaboration with the Whitefish Review, a local literary magazine, Crush Wine Bar hosts readings and other events.

The latest was with a book release 'party' with Jon Turk for "The Raven's Gift: A Scientist, a Shaman and Their Remarkable Journey Through the Siberian Wilderness" (St. Martin's Press) on January 19.

On March 25 (6 to 8 PM) they have a "Great night of darts!! Wine Tasting: $15 for apps, desserts and wines from Washington state!"

Not a bad way to spend the evening.

Moving to Montana Soon?! Darts, Wine and Writers for A Bistro A Day on March 23.

Some companies are trying to solve both the...

What is a old white guy like me doing writing about women, technology, even more so women of color in tech waters? Blame it on Stephanie Booth for putting Ada Lovelace Day (started by Suw Charman-Anderson) on my map in 2009. Ada Lovelace Day is "an international day of blogging to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science" and March 24 is the date when it all takes place. In 2009, I chose...
