PIZZA and WINE (David's Pizza to re-open)

YES, wine goes with Pizza.

I really like David's Pizza which was a mainstay on the edge of the GU campus until it abruptly closed. You can still get David's Pizza at Famous Ed's atop the South Hill. But we were promised David's Pizza would reopen in a new location. Well the wait is over. David's Pizza is set to reopen at 803 Post. Basically that's
South of the Spokane Arena and West of the Flour Mill. Pretty excited about this.

David's DaVinci (pesto and feta) is a edible masterpiece that goes so well with the Lone Canary Barbera, Wahluke Slope. But you can also pair this pizza with a Chaniti or Zin. I suggest you try Latah Creek Wine Cellars nearly sold out limited edition Zin. I usually request fresh tomatoes added.

Luna makes a pretty wonderful Margarita Pizza with fresh tomatoes and basil from their patio. This pairs well with a Cabernet Savingnon. May I suggest either Barili, Overbluff's Duality, Liberty Lake Wine Cellars, or Robert Karl. Spokane has many Fab Cabs to choose from.

Another noteworthy Za is Rock City Grill's Thai Chicken Pizza. If you like peanut sauce, this is the Pizza for you. Try this with a Riesling like Barrister's remarkable Riesling. or Nodland's Bebop. I like anything Thai with a Viognier. I suggest Caterina's award winning Viognier or Vixen from Overbluff Cellars.

What about if you're as adventurous as a Pepperoni Pizza? That's okay, your can pair it with a Barbera or a 2003 Grande Ronde Merlot Seven Hills Vineyard, Walla Walla Valley and all of a sudden it's a gourmet delight.

If you are looking to experiment in regards to Pizza and Wine pairings, I suggest you go to Left bank Wine Bar who is baking up pizza nightly and has over 60 wines by the glass. Be sure to report back with your perfect pairings.

Did you know ZA is now an official word in the dictionary? The only two-letter word containing the letter Z; invented by Scrabble players in order to capitalize on that letter's high point-value. Or short for Pizza.

Order in or pick up some gourmet to-go because Pizza and Vino are a marvelous match.

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…
