Hurray for Happy Hour! - Zola

I've never been one for going out directly after work, especially during the week when I know I have to work again the next day, but this was the kind of day where I could really use some "happy." So a coworker and I headed out to Zola as soon as I was done at 5pm to sample their version of happy hour. I had been to Zola once before with a birthday party, and while the drink I had that night was excellent (Long Island Ice Tea for the win) the place was loud and packed and I had an unpleasant experience in the restroom with another patron, so I had not been back. But I was willing to give the bar another try, especially because my coworker said the happy hour was such a deal. She ordered bottled beers and I ordered margaritas, which were wonderfully yummy. I'm also fairly certain they were included in the happy hour deal, but I can't be sure because I never got around to asking. The bar was full when we arrived at 5:30pm but cleared out quite a bit by 6pm. We sat at the bar, drank our drinks, and chatted for a couple of hours. And I had a really good time. I'd definitely try them again for happy hour or even just regular hours, but next time I might actually take the time to find out what drinks are included in the specials.

A Laid Back Evening at Capone's - Capone's Pub and Grill - Post Falls

I love that Capone's in Post Falls feels the same and yet different from its CDA compatriot. The deco is similar, the menu is similar, but the tone isn't quite the same. The Post Falls location seems so much more laid back, or at least it has been the times I've been there (both during the week and on weekends). I love Capone's because it has such a "neighborhood bar/meeting place" type feel to it. Plus they carry Mike's Hard varieties on their menu, which is awesome because I'm not fond of regular beer but will drink Mike's Hard like soda.

Where Great Food Meets Awesome Service - China Cafe

I've been going to China Cafe for years. Once upon a time it was my grandmother's favorite lunch spot and so we visited at least twice a month. Over time that has changed and she's lost interest in Chinese food, but as I haven't I will still frequent this place as often as I can. Their food is yummy, especially the sweet and sour chicken and egg fu yung. But it is their service that I appreciate the most. Normally the restaurant is pretty quiet on Sunday evenings, when I normally come in for dinner with my dad. But last night, though there was only two other tables of people when we arrived, at least half a dozen more groups came in while we were eating. This isn't a restaurant with a large wait staff either. Just one very friendly waitress who always remembers my drink order and the family that owns the place. So things started running a little more slowly than what I'm used to. But no one complained. No one got impatient. The waitress kept a smile on her face and a joke in her voice as she greeted everyone that walked in and took their orders. It is so nice to have a good meal surrounded by great people with awesome attitudes. China Cafe may not be the fanciest or greatest restaurant ever, but it will remain one of my favorites because I always feel welcome there.

Come for the Fish, Stay for the Service - The Chalet Restaurant

The Chalet has been around forever, serving up some of the best comfort-style food Spokane has to offer. The decor is simple and somewhat old school European, the menu is full of sandwiches and soups and the never-ending seafood "special," and lunch is busy every day of the week. I love the food (even though my Cobb and Chef salads are usually so full of toppings that I'm not sure they have any lettuce) but I love the service more. The waitstaff remembers you (if you go in often enough like I tend to do) and they are happy to build combo plates for you, over pile whip cream on your pie, and help you find that lettuce on your overstuff salad if you need it. In a time where things change more than they stay the same, it is nice to take a time out at The Chalet and get the same old food and the same old service they've always had.

What the Pho

I cannot believe how many Pho restaurants there are in the Northwest. If you add in all the Teriyaki places then you are guaranteed to find one in pretty much any strip mall. The reason of the success. Cause chicken teriyaki is amazing.

Three Margaritas, No Waiting - Outback Steakhouse (CdA)

It has been probably 10 years since I ate at an Outback Steakhouse. But I have memories of having pretty good meals there, so I was nothing but happy to tag along with TheBoyfriend and his family on his sister's birthday (happy 25th!). We went early in the evening as we had other plans, so arrived a little before 5pm and got a table immediately. Drinks were up first and I was having trouble picking a margarita flavor (my new fave drink) when I lucked upon - what I now consider - the BEST IDEA EVER. The menu offered a 'Rita Trio: three 4oz margaritas in pomegranate, mango, and lime. When that drink "sampler" arrived I was in heaven. I started with the mango and loved it. I had the lime second and was ecstatic. I finished up with the pomegranate and it was delightful. Sure it made me feel a bit like a lush to have so many glasses set in front of me, but it was worth it. The food was pretty awesome as well. We shared a Blooming Onion to start, and I had Parmesan pasta with shrimp for dinner. I was so full by the end but I enjoyed every single bite. It was nearly 6pm when we were leaving the restaurant was filled up, so if you are heading out to Outback on a Friday or Saturday night, I would recommend getting there plenty early (they open at 4pm on those nights) to make sure you don't have to wait for a table.

Friday is Fun Day with Extra Teriyaki - Capone's Pub and Grill

It has obviously been a while since I was in a bar on a Friday night, because I was not entirely prepared for how busy it was going to be when I walked in. Every table was full, servers were having to contort themselves into impressive dance moves to get between chairs, and the noise level was basically a dull roar. But busy can be fun, especially when you are with friends and family and eating awesome food and drinking tasty beverages. To eat I had the Hawaiian burger, dripping with ham, pineapple, Teriyaki sauce, and Swiss cheese. It was a giant mess to eat but finger-licking good so no big deal. I paired my burger up with a couple of Mike's Hard Limeades in the bottle. I'm not super fond of beer but I love the malt stuff, especially when it is like Mike's and tastes like soda. I was only at the pub for a couple of hours, and it was a chaotic mess the whole time, but sometimes it is a lot of fun to brave the crowds and experience things a little on the wild side.

Best Burgers Ever! - Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (Downtown)

Red Robin has the best burgers in town. You always leave full and you can count on the burger being delicious. My favorite thing besides the burger is dipping their delicious fries in ranch. Service is always great and food always comes out fast.

So Much Shrimp! - Red Lobster (Spokane)

It was a day that will live in gastronomical infamy for the rest of my days. A day that started out innocently enough with a happy family reunion (my sister arrived in town from Houston, Texas on a visit) and the promise of a tasty lunch at the national seafood chain. Little did I know going in to the restaurant with my sister, father, aunt, and grandma, that within only a few hours I would be more full of shrimp than I had ever been in my life! We arrived amidst their never-ending shrimp special, and each proceeded to order heaping plates of crustaceans. I had the shrimp alfredo (amazing sauce), shrimp scampi, garlic shrimp, and parmesan crusted shrimp, as well as bread and a stuffed mushroom and way too many glasses of soda. The rest of the family ate their own varieties of shrimp (there were several choices and each new order could be something different) and even when we were all really, REALLY stuffed, my sister kept insisting we keep eating. By the time we rolled out of there we had eaten enough shrimp to last several lifetimes but I think it was worth it. Red Lobster really knows what they are doing as far as shrimp is concerned, but I don't think I can handle that particular special more then once a year.

Finally a Beer I Really Like! - MacKenzie River Pizza Co.

It was bound to happen eventually. With the almost infinite seeming number of beers existing in the world (especially in this region where micro brews are so popular) I was bound to eventually find one that I really liked. I'm almost fond of Asahi Black (from Sushi.com) and I took several sips of the Vanilla Bourbon Stout at Steamplant Grill without gagging (I think that was the name of that beer) but I've never really tried a beer that I would have ordered my own glass of. That is, until I tried the oatmeal stout from MacKenzie River Pizza Co. in Coeur d'Alene. It was so smooth, so surprisingly sweet, so very tasty. It wasn't my drink, it was TheBoyfriend's, but I would have been happy if I had been the one to order it. I had a fruity mixed drink instead, that though tasty, was not quite as awesome as that beer. Luckily I had this amazing pizza to make up for it. The Thai Pie, with peanut sauce, chicken, little mandarin oranges, red peppers, and peanuts, is so tasty that I could eat it every day and probably die a happy woman. TheBoyfriend had the Hot Hawaiian with BBQ sauce, chicken, bacon, pineapple, and jalapeno peppers, that was just as good. I've never been fond of jalapenos or super spicy stuff (just like my non-existent enjoyment of beer) but this pizza was super good. I didn't even mind losing sensation in my tongue for several minutes. Between the beer and the pizza, I have to say MacKenzie River is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in CDA. I'm excited there are locations to check out in Spokane now as well.

Steak Fries - Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (Downtown)

If you like burgers but love fries the always go to Red Robin. You get bottomless fries with every burger. But you have to watch out...the burger will fill you up so you can't eat all your delicious fries. Try them with ranch and/or blue cheese next time.

Vietnamese Food Makes Me Happy - Pho Thanh and Cafe

There is something about cool shrimp spring rolls wrapped in see-through wrappers, hot pho soup with large chunks of chicken, and soft rice piled high beside spicy beef, that makes a meal better than average. And not only is the food tasty at Pho Thanh, but there is tons of it. Each plate is heaping with meat and veggis and spices. There are also a variety of dipping sauces offered, and sodas and beer available to drink. I don't know when the busy time of day is for this restaurant, as they've never been overwhelmed with customers when I've gone in, but even if they are standing room only the food is worth it.

Post Street Ale House - Post Street Ale House

I have a new fascination with Post Street Ale House. To be honest, it hasn't always been one of my favorite places to go. It always felt a little like a glorified Applebee's to me. But, I walk by there on my way to work every day and more out of convenience, decided to meet a friend for happy hour. I was delightfully surprised by my experience there. For one, their happy hour is truly happy. With half off all beverages from 3 pm to 6 pm, you can get a smokin' deal for a Kilt Lifter at $2 on draft. Second, we sat down and immediately were served regardless of how busy it was in there. I had a water and highlight of menu before I could even get my ID out to show her. The deals continue at their late night menu. Had we showed up after 10 pm all meals would have only been $5. If it's anything like the nachos we shared, it would be more than enough food and delicious. We each had dinner and still had leftovers and they had all the goodies at no extra charge. Overall, I was impressed and glad to disprove prior thoughts. Happy Hour 3 -6 - Half off all beverages 10 to close - Late night menu all $5 and under Open 11 am to close 808 W Sprague Avenue Spokane WA 99201 509-789-6900

Irish Death on tap? Let's live here! - Waddell's Neighborhood Pub and Grill

Apparently I'm the last to know how awesome Waddell's is. Even cable television is in the know, as Waddell's was featured on an episode of "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives." And after just one visit to this pub, I can understand why. The food is amazing. I had a chicken Caesar wrap with pasta salad. The portions were huge, the chicken tender, the dressing flavorful, and the tortilla soft and chewy. It was one of the best chicken Caesar wraps I've had, and I'm an amateur expert on the dish as I've eaten them all over town. The Boyfriend had fish and chips (though he substituted chips for a salad) and seemed to be in pub food heaven. He loves his fish and chips almost as much as I love my chicken Caesar wraps. The fish servings were enormous, I was surprised he managed to eat it all. But though the food was awesome and the service was quick and friendly, the very best part of dinner was the fact that Irish Death was on tap. When The Boyfriend saw that on the beer list his eyes lit up like a kid at Xmas and I knew that we would be frequenting this pub again, and again, and again, in the future.
