This guide is for my hometown of Ventura, California. I’ve organized it around how a good writing day would go, which also makes for a good day of eating and drinking. Use this Ventura guide to find my favorite coffee and beer and tacos. And if you see me writing away in one of these places, stop to say hello. It will most likely be time for the next drink.
Philipsburg, Montana is one of my favorite small towns in the country. It’s a combination of things. Great fishing. Fantastic brewery. Outstanding BBQ. Exceptional beauty. I could go on. But the best thing would be for you to go to the town and check it out for yourself. The second best thing would be to download this guide and read about all my favorites. We go to Philipsburg every summer, so hopefully we will see you there!
