About a month ago, we announced that Nick Offerman would be coming to Missoula for a show at the Adams Center. His Montana fans rejoiced, others were left wondering "who the hell is Nick Offerman?" Whenever anybody asks us, we answer "you know, Ron Swanson from Parks & Rec," and they join in with the rejoicing.

Some things you may not know about the hilarious man known as Nick Offerman.
