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, The Hoods edition


Friday is, of course, First Friday, and if you're looking for something cool and a bit different, you probably can't go wrong with The Hoods project. Hosted by Bon Bon, the art show will consist of artwork featuring Spokane's neighborhood themes. That's pretty cool, right? There'll be all kinds of contemporary graphic designs, photography, illustrations, etc. from five local artists. In other words, go check this out tomorrow, or any other day this month -- the show will be running through September. Their website has some more information.

EJ's Garden Bistro has had a soft opening of sorts. Stop by an see if you can get in; they're at 1928 W Pacific in Browne's Addition.

Apparently we'll be getting a winery specializing in ciders. Cider Architects is set to open on 1719 S Adams.
