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, things to do tonight edition


Bored? Don't fret, here are a few things for you to do this evening:

‎#TNTINW is going down at Coeur at 7pm. This is the Thursday Night Throwdown, where baristi from the Inland Northwest (TNT and INW -- get it?) participate in various coffee-based challenges, be it brewing or latte art or whatever. More importantly, you get to taste the results, so there is little reason why you wouldn't want to check this out. You can follow the throwdowns on Facebook too.

Jones Radiator is having their Firkin Fest at 6pm. Here there will be four cask aged beers -- aka firkins -- available for tasting, from New Belgium, Iron Goat, Odin, and Two Beers.

And as a follow up, Iron Goat's trivia night takes place at 7:30pm. Address is 2204 E Mallon.

(Oh, and you've probably already heard, but West Wing has closed. So don't go there tonight.)
