End of 2005 in Missoula, winter and winter-time parties and events.
Red's Bar, Missoula, MT.

2005 Steve Saroff

Michelle and i were walking around downtown, in the beginning of January, and the night was cold and and there were almost no people on the street. We had eaten Duck at a Thai restaurant, and thought that the year would be a good one. We were using a camera with a fixed 50mm lens, and seeing what the neon signs and flash-less photos would look like. We were happy, and as all happy people, thought it would last.

No one but Michelle and me on the street.
It was a nice evening.


The Missoula Club use to be half its present size. It was just one narrow, long room with a bar. Big sign in the window that said, Mixed Drinks, though no bartender there would ever do anything more complex than a vodka tonic. The place never had music. It was ugly, fluorescent lit,

Missoula Club Missoula, MT 2005 Steve Saroff No one but Michelle and me on the street. It was a nice evening. The Missoula Club use to be half its present size. It was just one narrow, long room with a bar. Big sign in the window that said, "Mixed Drinks," though no bartender there would ever do anything more complex than a vodka tonic. The place never had music. It was ugly, fluorescent lit, grimy and bright: a perfect place for telling stories. A True Irish bar, a place to talk. Here is a photo I took in the Missoula club of my great friend Phil Maloney, who died in 1998. This place has ghosts for me, in the bar, on the sidewalk, on the street... Missoula is a lonely town now...

12 Hot Springs Montana, Symes Hotel
This place was like the Bates Hotel.

Crazy room with a door that led to a long hallway of old bathtubs, which at night were used by loud, odd people. Nothing was quite right here.

13 Symes Hotel in the morning.
Stray dogs roamed amid the mud puddles, and fetid steam filled the air. Quite the resort, more like an abandoned rest home. Stench of sulfur and sounds of howling dogs...
