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.

Notes from all over, breweries and stuff edition


Black Label Brewing Company -- you remember them from their successful Kickstarter -- has a liquor license submitted for their 19 W Main Ave location. This, as you may recall, is the Saranac Building.

The brewery labels itself «Spokane's first green nano-brewery», which, hey, sounds enticing. Hopefully their brews will hit the market soon.

Speaking of breweries, Waddell's second spot -- which doubles as a brewery -- has opened its doors. Its address is 6501 N Cedar Rd, in the Five Mile neighborhood.

And right next door the Boiler Room is also in business.

Dawn of the Donut's truck is in business, which... Well, it is what it is, I suppose.
