Notes from all over, some Kickstarting and new opening edition

in #SpoCOOL  · 

We mentioned this on Twitter a few days back, but for your benefit: Flora, a small batch, local yoghurt company, is running a Kickstarter to spread their goods to the world. Or Spokane. Same thing, right?

They will share kitchen with the soon-to-open BATCH space, and have collected $5,606 of their $13,000 goal. Go support them if you so wish!

Spiceologist has launched yet another Kickstarter, for spice blends and rubs. It's definitely well worth a look, and it has already collected $3,823 of $20,000.

(Neither here nor there—or, possibly, completely here and there: Much as we love the ingenuity of all this crowdfunding, we can't help but wonder how long it'll take before the market is saturated.)

Liquor License Stalker tells us Ivory Table will open on June 3rd at 1822 E Sprague. That's the former Flying Pig Location. It looks like it could be a good, and atypical, addition to that neighborhood, at least if Instagram/S-R has it right.

(Does anyone still call it the «International District» or whatever? Because it never was particularly international.)
