Eclectic and enticing, Spokane has one of the best foodie scenes in the PNW. Our city has so much more to offer than just good food, particularly in the art sphere.

SPOKANE INTERSTATE FAIR

Get your kicks, it’s year 66! When the Spokane Interstate Fair comes to town, there are no rules. You show up and you indulge. It’s once a year and my motto is: Go big or go home!

SPOKANE RESTAURANT WARS 2017

Guys… I have a confession. Last week I had dinner with Kris, the founder of Restaurant Wars, and it’s possible that he left behind a very important envelope with the full list of restaurants participating in Restaurant Wars this year. This list was top secret. Key word: WAS. I’m LEAKING IT right here, right now. […]

CAFE CARAMBOLA

Cafe Carambola is where you should go to lunch next time you are in Coeur d’Alene. But… you can only go if it is Monday-Friday from 11am-3pm. Their hours are literally the only negative thing to be said about this wonderful, flavorful cafe. But, can we really blame them for being open for limited times because […]

SUSHI ZUSHI
