Shameless self-promotion: A while back, we launched a weekly newsletter, The Awesomeness Digest. Focused on food, restaurants, and culture, we have covered topics like eating Belizean rat; working as a cook in a Viking-themed park; the baffling concepts of Lørdagspizzaen and Fredagstacoen; other oddities. Feel free to read and/or subscribe over at Substack.

Notes from all over


If you’re a Twitter user, you might want to check out our new list called “spoeats.” In it we track any Inland Northwest restaurant Twitter account we can find. Give us a shout if you see anything missing; we are, of course, SpoCOOL!

Speaking of Twitter, Dancing @Andrewzahler gave us a heads up about Yes, it is what you would expect it to be—kind of an Only Eat Here for dive bars, with reviews and everything. Gentlemen, we salute you.

Speaking of links and guides, if you’re looking for a replacement to fill the void in your heart where Taste Everything Once used to be, you can always check out a local restaurant guide, Experience Spokane.

Speaking of empty holes in our hearts, David Blaine is reporting that Lazy Bones is closing. Too bad. We liked the place.
