Waddell's Pub & Grille

Waddell's Pub & Grille
4318 S Regal St
Spokane, WA 99256
(509) 443-6500

Reminiscent of an Irish Pub with warm wood paneling and hunter green booths, Waddell's Neighborhood Pub & Grille feels like a well-established watering hole, despite being less than two years old.

The Sunday Ticket and DirecTV Sports Package ensures your game will be shown on one of the seven conveniently scattered TVs. There are two more in the restrooms so you won't miss a play.

There are 20 draft beers on tap, over 50 chilled bottled beers and grab your passport because Waddell's can take you around the world with the Beer Sampler: for $20 you get 20 taster-size International selections.

Gameday specials include $8.50 Hefeweizen pitchers and $6 Coors Light pitchers during all NFL games.

As the weather turns colder, the Guinness Stew orders pick up. This stout chunky beef stew slow cooked with carrots, potatoes, onions, and celery can be ordered with mashed potatoes to make it into shepherd's pie. Waddell's is also known for their certified angus burgers with endless seasoned fries, baby back ribs and traditional fish 'n' chips. Breakfast is offered on weekends and there's a kids menu for the littlest sports fans.

As for the pub's namesake; an alligator-wrestling, bartending American League pitcher named "Rube" Waddell, who was a distant cousin to co-owner Josh Unser.

He was born on Friday the 13th. Waddell was known for coming to games late and changing on-field (without underwear), traveled with a circus in the offseason and still holds the American League single-season strikeout record by a left-handed pitcher.

He died on April Fools Day, 1914.

Waddell's Neighborhood Pub & Grille proves a place doesn't have to be old to be a classic.

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Urban Living - Spokane Style 

This was fun! Our story and loft was featured in the Inlander Health & Home magazine. Thank you to Blythe Thimsen, writer and Young Kwak, photographer. We are also very grateful to Heather Hanley of the Tin Roof for helping us design our space. Our ensuite coffee lounge even made the cover. Additionally, the other featured urban space was one of my downtown listings. ♥️

Laurie and James Allen’s new home in Kendall Yards offers lots of light and quick access to all that downtown Spokane has to offer.

A Vibrant Downtown Lifestyle is Luring Residents Back to Spokane's City Center.
"A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage!" Used in the 1928 presidential campaign, and attributed to President Herbert Hoover, the idea of a car in every garage planted a seed that took root. Over the years, along with it came the idea of the spacious house with a yard, the white picket fence and the happy, quiet life in suburban America.
Fast forward to 2018, and nowadays trading in th…

Art Matters...

Collecting ART is addictive but never regrettable. With ART, the regret I do have is from the pieces I talked myself out of. I have a few sad stories of inexpensive ART I passed on and now the artist's work is spendy. Buying ART is not extravagant or reserved for the wealthy. For me, it's just I have my priorities straight. Think about how much ART you could own if you didn't have cable, that unused landline and you limited the times a barista made your coffee.

When embarking on collecting art - start small. Buying student art is an inexpensive way to get original art. Its like listening to a talented yet unsigned musician in a dive bar prior to making it it big. You very well could be investing in and therefore encouraging the ART world's next big thing. Buying local art enriches your community and supports the local ART scene. Incorporating original ART in your home adds an unmatched warmth, texture and depth to your space.

ART MATTERS. I know my life is richer bec…
