The Flying Goat....about last night.

The Flying Goat is a new neighborhood pub in the Audubon Park area. It's located right across the street from  the oh-so-good Downriver Grill. I had heard nothing but great things and every time I drove by it was calling me to join in on its patio, chock-full of happy people. I hate to be left out.

It was a perfect night to sit out on the patio and split a artisan pizza. Our choice was a chicken pesto ZA with grilled veggies after a lightly dressed Caesar salad. We both raved while we indulged in this flavorful precisely baked pizza. If you go, expect gourmet bar food - special appetizers, wood fire pizzas, artistic salads and creative sandwiches.

The Flying Goat boasts quite the beer menu and I should have had our laid back waiter help me select a adventuresome beer choice, but I didn't and opted for a boring choice of an Alaskan Amber which turned out to be a good, yet safe choice. They did have a smaller but thoughtful selection of wine. Next time...There will so be a next time, as I kept watching orders go to tables that I wanted a little bite of.  Yeah Spokane! Another great locally owned dining establishment with staying power.

The Flying Goat has only been opened since June 2010 and the building design intrigued me. Come to find out the neighborhood restaurant used a hand picked selections of recycled wood to put together the floor, the bar window frames and some of the outside slats. The re-purposed wood came from a circa 1910 grain elevator erected in Ritzville. Remarkable.

Looking forward to stopping here. In the 1960s, it was a public library branch!

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…
