very year when our annual SUMMER GUIDE (page 22) rolls around, it’s incredible to view everything that’s going on in the Inland Northwest the next few months. At the Inlander, this view comes together piece by piece, as nearly a dozen writers track down all the fun to be had listening to live music, or riding your bike, or dining on the seasonal treats that spring up throughout the summer. Now you get to check it all out in one place in this week’s issue. We’re pretty sure you’ll like what you see, especially after a rough couple of years. Also this week, spring intern Summer Sandstrom digs into the longrunning discussion of breaching the Lower Snake River dams to help salmon, particularly what such a move would mean to tribal communities (page 8). Carrie Scozzaro checks out a cool new spot in Coeur d’Alene, Stylus Food & Wine Bar (page 20), while Music Editor Seth Sommerfeld revels in the music/ comedy stylings of perhaps the greatest band in the world, Tenacious D, before they play Northern Quest Resort & Casino (page 14). Lots of great ways to get your summer going! — DAN NAILEN, editor

Let’s Not Stop Talking About It

We share a lot in common, and if we start there, maybe we can start to make some progress on keeping kids safe in their classrooms BY DENA OGDEN
f you’re reading this, I’m going to make a few assumptions about you. I’m going to assume: You are horrified by the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 kids and two teachers dead; you would like there to be fewer (or zero!) school shootings; you’re aware that there’s a heated debate around gun safety and gun violence prevention in the United States. And I don’t mean you follow specifics of certain state laws or legislation… just the idea that, you know, people fight about this a lot. If those points accurately describe you, we have a few things in common. In fact, given that the Inlander’s a regional publication, this is probably just the tip of the iceberg of what we have in common. Maybe your family is excited about the Riverfront Park remodel, too. Maybe you also wish Rockwood Bakery had longer hours. Maybe one of your favorite ways to spend a Saturday morning is browsing Auntie’s. We’ve probably shopped in the same stores, eaten in the same restaurants, waited at the same light on Division. You can probably tell where I’m going with

this. In addition to agreeing that school shootings are horrific and tragic, we’re members of the same community. So why don’t we start there? Let’s come at this with an angle of what we agree on, what we have in common, instead of defining it by red versus blue, liberal versus conservative, Republican versus Democrat. My goal here isn’t to change your mind about anything, to convince you to “switch sides” or to shame you for not agreeing with me on other topics that go hand in hand with this one. And it’s definitely not to take your guns or make it OK for someone else to. It’s to identify that there actually is a common goal here that’s not so much political, as it is human. It’s this: Kids don’t have to die in their classrooms. It’s not a given. It doesn’t have to happen. Are you still with me? Great. I’m going to take a second and acknowledge that it may feel like
I’m ramping up to add a sneaky argument, or slip in a dig against previous actions by a politician or political party, or like I’m going to pull the rug out with some aggressive zinger… but I’m not. “OK, lady,” you might be saying. “Just what are you getting at then?”

arlier this month, an essay in the Washington Post cited a 2017 Gallup study that found that, on average, Americans move on from school shootings in four days’ time. That is bleak. Funerals for Uvalde did not even start until more than a week passed. The news cycle barely covered it. So, let’s not move on this time. The Inland Northwest is home to folks across the political spectrum. I know there are people reading who do not and will not vote the way I do, and who I probably have very little in common with beyond those few things I outlined earlier. But if we agree that kids should not be dying from mass shootings, we’re already off to a great start. Wherever you are on the specifics of gun legislation, whether you follow it closely or keep an intentional distance — whether you vote red or blue, whether you live in Washington or Idaho — if you feel strongly about this, please just keep talking about it. Tell someone. A friend. A family member. A co-worker. A neighbor. But please, stay with the issue. Especially if you are a gun owner, because your insight is crucial right now.
A 2017 Gallup study found that Americans move on from school shootings in four days’ time. That is bleak. So, let’s not move on this time. I don’t want to assume that wading into an issue like this one comes naturally or easily for everyone. It doesn’t for me, but it does get easier with practice. If you’re not sure how to start, allow me to make a few suggestions. If you’re saddened by school shootings and you: Don’t mind a few more rules or hoops to jump through when it comes to buying or maintaining your guns, let elected officials know. Call them during business hours to speak to someone, call them after hours to leave a message or email them (there are lots of templates online for this that you can copy and paste in seconds if that’s your preference). On the flip side, if you’re saddened by the idea of school shootings and do mind more hoops to jump through, let them know that, too. Give lawmakers something to work with. Have money to burn: Consider supporting a nonprofit or advocacy group that represents your interests. Have time to spare, and feel like leaving your house: Show up somewhere. There are marches, there are groups, there are meetings. Have time to spare, and don’t feel like leaving your house: Do some research and get more detail about the current state of this issue and potential legislation in the works. Use social media: Don’t wait until the next school shooting to discuss. Figure out which friends or family members are also thinking about this. Are overwhelmed by the magnitude of the issue: Start small. Take one tiny step. And then another. They will add up. Maybe it’s risky to encourage people I don’t know, who might disagree with me, to get involved with a cause that I’m passionate about. Even if it is, it doesn’t feel like as much of a risk as letting the conversation dwindle. Or as much of a risk as what kids face in their classrooms every day. n Spokane writer Dena Ogden’s work has appeared in The Atlantic, Bustle, Romper, Refinery29 and more.

SALMON AND JUSTICE Salmon are at the forefront of calls to remove the four Lower Snake River dams, but the conversation is beginning to also focus on tribal justice BY SUMMER SANDSTROM
Ice Harbor Dam east of Pasco is one of the four Lower Snake River dams.
8 INLANDER JUNE 16, 2022
n the spring, rivers used to be filled to the brim with salmon racing to the ocean, but now on some parts of the Snake River, salmon are a scarce sight. For decades, local leaders and advocates have been calling for the federal government to study the removal of the four Lower Snake River dams and the obstacles they’ve created for salmon. Recently, the conversation is becoming more urgent as tribes and environmental groups warn of the looming threat of extinction that could become a reality if action isn’t taken soon. At the Salmon Orca Project’s third summit, Life After the Dams, held in Spokane May 20, speakers from local tribes not only spoke about why removing the dams is important, but about the impacts that they’ve had on their ways of life. “At this point, we are done arguing on whether or not the dams need to be breached. We know they do,” Kayeloni Scott, communications manager for the Nez Perce Tribe, said in her opening remarks. “We’re ready to talk about what that’s going to look like and how we can move forward and prosper in the future.” ...continued on page 10

NEWS | ENVIRONMENT “SALMON AND JUSTICE,” CONTINUED... This has been a topic of discussion for decades, retired journalist Rocky Barker told the crowd. Barker said that even in the ’90s when he started reporting on the issue for the Idaho Statesman, it was clear that it was scientifically and economically possible to remove the dams. “When I first covered this issue, [it was] about dams and salmon; but in 2020, thanks in part to all of you, it became about tribal justice,” he said during a panel discussion. “And the fact is, all the things we said 25 years ago are still true, but now we have another imperative to drive us.”

n addition to problems for wildlife, the dams have created equity issues along the river systems in the Northwest. Areas around and below the four Lower Snake River dams receive a majority of mitigation dollars used to resolve some impacts of the dams, said Carol Evans, chairwoman of the Spokane Tribal Council, in her remarks at the May 20 summit. However, areas above the dams on the Columbia and Spokane rivers are the most negatively affected by this issue, and they remain unaddressed.

MURRAY-INSLEE DRAFT REPORT SHOWS POTENTIAL COSTS OF REPLACING RESOURCES PROVIDED BY LOWER SNAKE RIVER DAMS
he removal of four Lower Snake River dams and full or partial replacement of the total resources they provide (energy, rebuilding Lewiston’s port, irrigation, etc.) could cost between $10.3 billion and $27.2 billion in current dollars. There’s some uncertainty depending on the energy replacement options, according to a draft report released June 9, commissioned by Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. Dam removal has been debated for decades, but in recent years, tribes and environmental groups have amplified the message that imminent dam removal is necessary to save threatened and endangered salmon and steelhead from extinction. Already, 42 percent of the spring/summer Chinook populations in the Snake are seeing so few spawning adults return that they are at the “quasi-extinction threshold,” the report states. The document acknowledges how integral salmon are to the culture and sustenance of Northwest tribes, and the negative impact dams had. “[Dam removal] would allow tribal peoples to renew their close religious and spiritual connection with approximately 34,000 acres of land where their ancestors lived and are buried and allow them to properly care for their grave sites,” the report states. “They could return to more than 700 locations where they were accustomed to live, fish, and hunt, harvest plants, roots and berries, conduct cultural and religious ceremonies, and pursue other aspects of their normal traditional lives.” The four dams, including Ice Harbor, Lower Monumental, Little Goose and Lower Granite, were built between 1955 and 1975, with fish ladders. They and other dams on the Columbia-Snake River system reduced fish runs by more than 90 percent of historic levels. The report notes that dam removal could provide an additional 140 miles of spawning habitat and increase tribal harvest by 29 percent each year. The dams provide a significant amount of power each year (at least enough to power Seattle), and they are part of a system of reservoirs that allow for barging from Lewiston, Idaho, to the Pacific Ocean. Kurt Miller, executive director of Northwest RiverPartners, an organization representing dozens of community-owned utilities and public utility districts in the Northwest, says the report doesn’t go far enough in LETTERS addressing the tension dam removal Send comments to creates at the same time the region email@example.com. is, by law, moving toward 100 percent clean energy. Dam removal may impact grid reliability, energy prices, and lead to more greenhouse gas emissions, he says. “I think they recognize we’re trying to decarbonize the grid,” Miller tells the Inlander. “I don’t think they recognize how far back getting rid of the dams sets us in trying to decarbonize. That’s the part that’s really important and missing from this report.” The draft, which does not offer formal recommendations, states that any replacements for irrigation, energy production, and transportation of grain and other materials would need to be in place before the dams are breached in order to mitigate impacts. The draft also states that climate change and drought are going to impact the reliability of dam services in coming years, and details some of the complex steps it would take to replace their energy production. “We sympathize with the concerns of our neighbors in the power and agricultural industries,” says Phil Rigdon, Yakama Nation superintendent of natural resources, in a news release after the report’s release. “The Yakama Nation also feels these concerns, since we operate both power and agricultural enterprises to serve our people. The draft Murray-Inslee report shows that the lower Snake River dams can be removed with benefits to the entire region, and that industries who currently depend on the dams can thrive and get business done in new ways if properly supported, but we must move with urgency if we are to avoid salmon extinction.” Public comment is being accepted on the draft report through 5 pm on July 11, and can be submitted at lsrdoptions.org (where the draft can be viewed) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and including “Draft LSRD Benefit Replacement Study” in the subject line. — SAMANTHA WOHLFEIL

Jack Kestell wants to bring more homes to this Airway Heights parcel — just what Spokane County needs. But it sits empty, as he’s struggled with growth management restrictions.
Are Washington state’s anti-sprawl rules suffocating Spokane’s ability to build housing? BY DANIEL WALTERS
f all the proposed solutions to Spokane County’s emergency shortage of houses, one is glaringly obvious: build more houses. That’s exactly what Realtor Jack Kestell says he’s been trying to do. He’s representing the owners of an undeveloped piece of property in western Spokane County. Either by selling the land or developing it themselves, he says, the general hope is to build 325 single-family homes and 180 units of multifamily housing, along with a lot of dedicated retail and office space. Part of the property would be dedicated to the Cheney School District, Kestell says. Right now, however, it’s just 180 acres of empty fields behind the Shamrock Paving Company building near the Northern Quest Resort & Casino. But it’s also near Airway Heights, where Fairchild Air Force Base personnel and Amazon warehouse workers have been in desperate need of housing. “That would take a huge weight off of the supply issue,” Kestell says. “We’re in the middle of the worst
12 INLANDER JUNE 16, 2022
housing crisis we’ve ever had in Spokane County.” Not only has the development not been built, construction hasn’t begun, and the zoning hasn’t changed to make such a proposed development possible. In fact, it’s been 3½ years, Kestell says, and he hasn’t even been able to get approval to change the underlying regional planning borders required to legally change the zoning to build a housing development on that land. “We’ve just been blocked by government,” Kestell says. “We’re trying to figure out how to satisfy them.” Unless that change happens, the most housing anyone could build on the 180-acre property is 18 houses. It all goes back to the state-level restrictions put in place decades ago to try to limit sprawl and plan for development in a way that wouldn’t destroy the budgets of local governments. Dave Andersen, director of the growth management program for the Washington state Department of Commerce, says one goal of these “urban growth area” restrictions is ultimately to save communities money through regionwide planning. “If your infrastructure is too expensive, then, you know, the community you’re building on top of that is ultimately going to be unaffordable,” Andersen says. But Kestell and other critics see those restrictions as yet more hurdles preventing development from happening — and blame that for making a community unaffordable, too. “It used to be... if you had a piece of property, and you could provide utilities and streets, you could develop it,” Kestell says. “That’s why we had plenty of housing through the years. But then that just all kind of died about 20 years ago.”
ay back in 1990, Washington state passed the Growth Management Act, intending to push denser development inward and limit suburban sprawl. Cities and counties were required to establish

urban growth areas — zones in and around each city that were already near a lot of urban infrastructure, like roads, sewer pipes and electric lines. Want to build an apartment, or even a suburban housing development? It has to be inside the urban growth area. “The Growth Management Act is the dumbest thing,” Kestell says. “It was basically inverse condemnation. They just changed the rules and took away people’s property rights.” County Commissioner Al French similarly argues that urban growth area regulations have backfired, suffocating local construction of housing while driving sprawl anyway — the sprawl happened, but just across the border in Kootenai County. Spokane County’s plan for the Airway Heights parcel was simple: Remove roughly 180 acres of the urban growth area map covering the county’s off-road vehicle park — which was never going to be used for development — and carve out 180 additional acres on the map to add the property Kestell wants developed. “It’s a net-zero increase in the UGA,” French says. But it’s not that simple. Back in 2016, Spokane County settled more than a decade of lawsuits over various county decisions to expand its urban growth area. Part of the deal limited the county’s ability to add to the UGA for another decade. Even swaps that didn’t increase the area of the UGA came with a catch — the county would have to provide an extensive analysis of the impacts on transportation and capital facilities such as water service, schools and local utilities, identifying funding sources to bring those online. Both the Department of Commerce and Futurewise — the statewide anti-sprawl group that was part of the county settlement — have insisted that that kind of extensive analysis be conducted, in detail, and they concluded that the limited analysis Kestell did provide was inadequate.
“We’re concerned about sewer, we’re concerned about stormwater, we’re concerned about fire protection and police protection,” says Tim Trohimovich, attorney for Futurewise. The property is not even inside the water service area for the city of Spokane, he says — and even after Kestell modified the plans, he’s concerned it’s too close to Fairchild Air Force Base. But Kestell says all the analysis requirements put the land’s owners in a bind — there’s no guarantee that, if they spend a ton of money preparing reports with all the analysis, that Futurewise and the Department of Commerce will be willing to sign off on it. “The owners aren’t willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to do something speculative,” Kestell says. Wrap development in too much red tape, and you make housing expensive. And since housing is one of the best ways to build wealth — the more expensive housing is, the harder it is for anyone to escape poverty. “When you restrict the amount of housing, who suffers?” French says. “Low-income communities of color.” Back when the county’s urban growth area was assessed in 2001, French says, Spokane city officials believed the city’s population would grow by 54,000 people in the two decades after 2001 — but in reality, it grew significantly slower. “The Department of Commerce is supposed to be the watchdog over compliance with the Growth Management Act, and they have let the city slide for the last 20 years,” French says. Trohimovich argues that the problem was that the county created too much land in the unincorporated county to be able to be developed. “The county has an oversized urban growth area,” Trohimovich says. “People are going there because it’s cheaper, instead of building in the city of Spokane.” Trohimovich says Futurewise has pushed for reforms to the Growth Management Act, requiring cities to also consider the consequences of not having enough housing built in a region.

eanwhile, in his attempt to get the UGA boundary changed, Kestell has had to work with Futurewise, the Cheney School District, Fairchild Air Force Base, Spokane County, the cities of Spokane and Airway Heights, and the Washington state departments of Commerce and Transportation. But while that takes a lot of time up front, the Department of Commerce’s Andersen says it ultimately makes things easier rather than needing to fight about each individual development. “I don’t think the statute necessarily is broken, but it’s still difficult,” Andersen says about the Growth Management Act. “You’re still talking about getting a lot of people to work together. It makes it look harder, because you can’t ignore each other.” Poor infrastructure planning can sabotage whole swaths of developable land in the county — French, in fact, points out that the city of Spokane’s failure to build a road for local traffic next to U.S. 195 has paralyzed whole swaths of developable land in the region. But no matter where homes are built, French argues, Spokane hasn’t built nearly enough housing — we’re 32,000 homes short. You’d have to have to build a development like Kestell wants to build 64 times to catch up. n

Tenacious D’s Kyle Gass and Jack Black are still more than capable of rocking your socks off.
The CULT of the D This is not the greatest story about Tenacious D, this is just a tribute BY SETH SOMMERFELD
enacious D is the greatest band in the world. You know how I know? Because Tenacious D has told us all that. Repeatedly. With supreme confidence. The most immediate evidence also backs up this claim — Tenacious D’s upcoming show at Northern Quest Resort & Casino on June 20 is the only major summer concert in Spokane to sell out. Tickets are still available for everyone from Brad Paisley to Machine Gun Kelly to Phoebe Bridgers to Greta Van Fleet. The D? Gonzo, baby. The comedic acoustic-rock duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass started as a cult club act in 1990s Los Angeles, before eventually landing a Mr. Show-adjacent eponymous HBO series of comedic shorts which lasted a mere six episodes. But the band’s true legacy was forged by the duo’s classic 2001 debut album, Tenacious D. Not only does the album hold up as one of the funniest records of the 2000s while also rocking the socks off, it might be the best album of self-contained lore about a band ever crafted. The fundamental core of Tenacious D is simple — no one can touch Jack Black’s comedic bravado. His insistence on being confident even when he’s the fool made him a Hollywood star and makes every boastful claim he makes as the lead singer of the D ring true. Really, rock and roll is inherently hilarious — all these singers prancing around like they’re sex gods — but it takes Tenacious D doing it with acoustic guitars and pudgy bodies to magnify the silliness of the genre. Gass offers Black the ideal musical and comedic counterpart. Musically, he can deliver everything from metal shredding to classical picking, while his persona comes across as the more subdued dunce who often gets steamrolled by Black’s idiotic enthusiasm. Together, they’re a merry band of fools who gleefully compose soaring rock about their own greatness.
he self-titled debut album puts this dynamic on full blissful display. From the opening moments on “Kielbasa,” the pair are bickering about having to write a new song and Gass not playing a pretty enough opening chord. But that soon gives way to a Tenacious D staple — wildly oversexualized lyrics backed by funky riffs. There’s no room or reason for hiding behind metaphor as Black belts lines regarding his kielbasa

sausage, warm buttcheeks and, of course, it being “Tenacious D time.” Always a pillar of rock masculine cocksureness, the D takes boasts about sexual prowess to the extreme. The most lauded of these efforts must be “F— Her Gently,” a tender ballad about sweet loving being sometimes preferable to rough trade, featuring orchestral swells and diversions into Zanzibarian food. But the naughty times don’t end there, with additional slow jams about group intercourse (“Double Team”) and nonmusical interstitial bits about the logistics of lifting one’s body weight with only their privates (“C— Pushups”). These spoken bits are essential to the makeup of the album, allowing for both guys’ characters to come to the forefront. Sometimes they offer contextualization for the song that follows — like how Black makes an Edisonian innovation called “Inward Singing” that leads to an argument where Kyle leaves the band — but other times they’re just simple comedy sketches that fully work (the extreme ordering of “Drive-Thru” or the minimalist bendy brilliance of “One Note Song”). When they’re not talking, it’s time for rocking, which leads us to a secret sauce that helps make Tenacious D a classic — there is so much talent on this album beyond just Black and Gass. For starters, the record is produced by the Dust Brothers, the genius team behind the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique, Odelay by Beck, Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory, among others. The record also features lead electric guitar from Warren Fitzgerald of the Vandals and percussion from the Beastie Boys’ Alfredo Ortiz. Oh, and some guy named… (checks notes)… Dave Grohl… plays the drums (and some guitar).
TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR!
or all the big names involved, the album really comes down to Black building up the band’s internal legend. The obvious starting point for the conversation is that they once played the greatest and best song in the world — that song is not on Tenacious D because they can’t remember it. Instead “Tribute” folk-ily tells the tale of their “Devil Went Down to Georgia”-esque journey of defeating a demon with the power of rock. The duo further extends their mythology on “Wonderboy,” which plays around in the realm of Medieval magic that ’70s rock like Led Zeppelin reveled in. The Tolkien-like tale about Wonderboy and Young Nasty Man, which features powers like mind bullets, turns out to be a story about — you guessed it — the band Tenacious D! On a less grandiose scale, so many of the songs (“Explosivo,” “Rock Your Socks,” “The Road”) essentially become sonic distillations of “we rock harder than you!” Black is even so brash as to demand that metal legend Ronnie James Dio must pass his legacy on to the D (“Dio”). But even when you strip away the layers and layers of delightful self-ego stroking, you still have Gass and Black’s relationship, which rings true throughout the record. Sure, they might fight with “Karate” at times, but when “Kyle Quit the Band” — only to reunite — the duo’s unbreakable bond of rock comes shining through. And the unbridled glee of “Friendship,” even in the face of fighting a bear together, is genuinely sweet (even if they couch it in that they’ll only be friends as long as the record deal holds). The album alone makes a case for the D’s spot in the rock pantheon, and set such a high bar that projects that followed couldn’t measure up. The band’s 2006 feature film, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny is an alright stoner comedy, but the first record and even the TV show offer a more fun origin story of the group. The accompanying sophomore album The Pick of Destiny suffers from many songs describing things happening on screen, so it doesn’t translate super well. Black’s Hollywood demands meant the the group’s third album, Rize of the Fenix, didn’t arrive until 2012 (and it isn’t anything special), while 2018’s Post-Apocalypto serves as the best Tenacious D output since 2001, with its selfcontained tale of the D adventuring in post-apocalyptic times. Still, nothing will ever touch the cocksure majesty of Tenacious D. And that’s perfectly fine. When you conquer the realm of music on your first try, there’s nothing wrong with reigning supreme as two best pal kings on the throne of rock. n Tenacious D, Puddles Pity Party • Mon, June 20 at 7:30 pm • Sold out • Northern Quest Casino & Resort • 100 N.

BY E.J. IANNELLI
he modern romantic comedy — with its uncertainty of mixed signals, the fine line between irritation and infatuation, the casual scheming to force a particular outcome, the blissful moment in which unrequited love becomes requited — has a long lineage, and Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing has undoubtedly shaped the template. Set in Messina, Italy, during a time of military conflict, Much Ado is the story of two pairs of would-be lovers: Benedick and Beatrice, and Claudio and Hero. A series of misunderstandings, both deliberate and accidental, keeps them apart right up until the point where it brings them together. Because that circuitous path to love is filled with wry one-liners and clever conversational jousting, Much Ado remains a perennial favorite of audiences and actors alike. Spokane Ensemble Theatre is gearing up for a new staging of Much Ado co-directed by Rio Alberto and Juan Mas, who jointly stepped in after the show’s original director was called away
by other professional commitments. At that time, Mas was on the other side of the state directing Hamlet for the Seattle Shakespeare Company, but he saw this as an “opportune moment” to keep the production’s momentum going while also working with Alberto to up the creative ante. “I hadn’t done Much Ado before,” Mas says, “and Rio and I would talk on the phone every day on my way to rehearsal. He was telling me his ideas and some of the things he wanted to do, which I really liked. We started collaborating over the phone about how to take this piece and make it a new experience for our local theater audience.” The simplest and most obvious change involved turning Messina into “a make-believe lake somewhere between Spokane and Priest River,” Idaho. “It’s supposed to be 2021. The soldiers are coming back from Afghanistan. And everything we’re doing theme-wise, set-design-wise has got a
n a bid to involve and reflect more parts of the local community, Mas and Alberto have also made conscious choices about casting and script. That’s meant cutting and rearranging scenes to make characters like Borachio and Margaret more prominent. Dogberry is being played by a female actor (Bridget Pretz) who’s chosen to play the role as a man. Borachio is now Borachia (Maeve Griffith). Likewise, Claudio is now Claudia (Erin Sellers). Changes like these aren’t at all unusual. In recent decades, many directors have approached all of Shakespeare’s work, Much Ado included, in a way that subverts convention or teases out new themes. A 1982 Royal Shakespeare Company production directed by Terry Hands used a mirrored set to underscore the characters’ narcissism. Director Iqbal Khan transferred a 2012 staging to India in order to highlight what he described as “the parallels between early modern England and modern-day Delhi.” In 2019, New York Public Theater’s Free Shakespeare in the Park staged an all-Black performance set amid the tense political climate of contemporary Georgia. Playing opposite Sellers’ Claudia is Kiki White as her lover, Hero, daughter to Messina’s governor. On the advice of an assistant stage director, White toyed with the idea of an astrological basis for her character — a Virgo, maybe: “intelligent,” “straightforward” but sometimes “cranky.” Then someone suggested using an animal as inspiration. White settled on a flamingo. “Then I thought that each scenario is completely different. Maybe she’s not always a flamingo — this pretty, gorgeous animal. Maybe she could be a tiger. Maybe she’s a bunny,” White says with a laugh. “Now that I have more experience with acting, I feel that the best way to tell the story is through nonverbal communication.” White’s first major participation YOUNG KWAK PHOTOS in live Shakespeare came last summer with Twelfth Night in Spokane Ensemble Theatre’s first-ever production, also hosted at the MAC. In retrospect, she would have liked to have spent more time diving into the text. That’s one of the reasons she’s approaching this play — which reminds her of a matchmaking reality TV show — with such gusto. “For some reason, this feels different. I have a different relationship with Hero. I’m just like, ‘Oh, I’m TOP: Kiki White (center) draws on flamingos, reality TV and more to play Hero. learning this about her or discovering this.’ And I’m very excited to be able ABOVE: Co-director Rio Alberto set the Italian love story in the Inland Northwest. to do this.

THE BUZZ BIN
LET LATE NIGHT’S FREAK FLAG FLY
Who will replace James Cordon?
GUSSIED UP GARLAND SPACE Spokane’s Garland District just got a new mural from local artist Aaron Smith that he’s calling HAVEN OF THE GREAT NORTHWEST. Located on the west-facing exterior of the Clock House (822 W. Garland Ave.), the mural was commissioned by Jim Orcutt, the building’s owner, and includes little references to nearby businesses. The surreal image of a ghostlike white stag in front of a Greco-Roman ruin is based on artist Gilbert Williams’ original design, which Smith says he got permission to use. Smith says he’ll be adding subtle details to the image, between regular visits to Rocket Bakery across the street. That, he adds, “is why I was so excited to do this, because I’ll get to see it while I’m doing the ordinary things that I do anyway.” (CARRIE SCOZZARO)
It’s time to get creative now that James Cordon is opening up a late night timeslot BY SETH SOMMERFELD
here’s an argument to be made that nothing has been more comedically influential the last 40 years than the night owl talk show time slot. Late Night with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O’Brien both tore up the comedy rule book with a constant stream of irreverent, absurdist humor for decades. It’s not coincidental that seemingly most modern comedians cite at least one of them as a major influence — the people who were those shows’ target audiences were the comedy nerd weirdos with little better to do than stay up till the wee hours, faces illuminated by the glowing TV screens. But talk shows have shifted dramatically since Dave and Conan’s heydays. TiVo made appointment viewing less essential, and then streaming made it virtually anachronistic. Going viral on YouTube with a late night comedy bit or interview now seems valued above all else in an era of Carpool Karaoke and Jimmy Fallon’s dumb games with celebrities. Podcasts have shown how much more interesting long-form interviews are compared to most in-and-out celebrity chats crammed between commercial breaks. With that in mind, it’s time to think outside the late night box. Thankfully, CBS has that chance, after it was announced that James Cordon would leave The Late Late Show in 2023. While there will be a host of funny people thrown out to fill the opening — be it ones with their own shows (Trevor Noah, Amber Ruffin) or general comedic talents (Amy Sedaris, Mindy Kaling) — retreading the same fading formula seems like a losing, or at least diminishing, proposition. Here’s my pitch: Break up the time slot into five separate lower-budget talk shows, each responsible for only one night per week. As we’ve seen with shows like Last Week Tonight, focusing on one episode per week
18 INLANDER JUNE 16, 2022
can lead to a much higher quality than the grind of something like the modern The Daily Show. And don’t try for mass appeal with each, go niche. In an era of fragmented pop culture, finding a devoted audience can have more value than weak engagement with a broader base. So target audiences that haven’t gotten network representation. In perhaps the easiest move on the board, have Desus & Mero (already in the CBS family on Showtime) bring their free-wheeling sensibilities to network TV once a week. If you’re really looking for that pre-made viral content above all else, why not give Sean Evans’ online chicken wing-devouring talk show Hot Ones a network slot to quite literally spice things up? But even those would be relatively standard time fillers. Here’s a question: Since pop culture is largely driven by teen culture, why not have a teen-centric talk show? If you could find the 2022 equivalent of Tavi Gevinson when she was a teen phenom starting Rookie, that could be an ideal space to cover things that olderfocused talk shows ignore. One comedy format that’s never had great late night representation? Improv. It’s risky in its hit-or-miss nature, but having a Comedy Bang Bang-style show that mixes celebrity interviews and improv insanity would be a breath of fresh air. There are so many possibilities: A standup-centric night, a music-focused show (essential in the era when MTV ignores music), a video games/nerd culture program. So much ground hasn’t been covered! In all likelihood, CBS will probably just fill the slot with another run-of-the-mill talk show with an uninspired host. And if they do, it might be the final death knell in the late night talk show format. Get creative. Get varied. Get the weird back in late night TV. n
FINAL DINO-BITE? In theory, the Jurassic Park franchise is now extinct. JURASSIC WORLD DOMINION is said to be the sixth and final entry in the dinosaur blockbuster series, though I tend to believe it won’t be mined for more profit the same way I believe the greedy businessmen in the films will learn their lesson and stop exploiting dinoDNA for profit. That said, Dominion serves as a capable send-off. It’s certainly a massive upgrade over the previous Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The film plays it relatively safe, hitting all the dinosaur horror beats like clockwork and looping back in the original Jurassic Park protagonist trio (Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum) for a much-needed charisma boost. It might be kinda dumb and predictable, but that sort of mindless fun — atrociraptor chases through Malta, forest escapes from apex predators — works well enough in the summer blockbuster realm.

A Coeur d’Alene couple hits all the right sensory notes at Stylus Wine and Vinyl Bar
Stylus has a midcentury modern vibe. ERICK DOXEY PHOTO
BY CARRIE SCOZZARO
rista and Robby French have put equal emphasis on the tasting and listening experience to create a welcoming vibe in their new Stylus Wine and Vinyl Bar. “We’ve been talking about this probably for the past five years because we wanted to start working for ourselves instead of working for other people,” says Krista, who’s a sommelier and oversaw the wine program at Syringa Japanese Cafe & Sushi Bar and its sister business, Midtown Bluebird, as well as for Vicino Pizza, Tony’s on the Lake and Beverly’s at the Coeur d’Alene Resort. Robby is a vinyl collector and musician, so the couple asked themselves, Krista says, “What can we do that we can bring both of what we love together?” In late 2019 and into early 2020, the Frenchs traveled to Europe looking for inspiration, backpacking their way through 14 countries. In an Amsterdam vinyl bar called BR020, for example, they picked up an idea for what would become a featured plant wall at Stylus incorporating Robby’s drum cymbals. Other inspirations for Stylus originated closer to home. “I love green,” says Krista, whose family had a green couch when she was growing up, much like the tufted green velvet three-seater at Stylus. The piece matches avocado green velour curtains framing large windows in the newly constructed building on Fourth Street, just above Appleway Avenue.
20 INLANDER JUNE 16, 2022
Overall, Stylus’ vibe is midcentury modern, with pale wood floors, black acrylic shell seating and a black ceiling, plus brass accents in funky chandeliers, the barstools, and potted plants. It’s similar to how their home looks, Krista explains. “On our days off we would play records, and make dinner and drink wine, and that was kind of our date night,” says Krista, who wanted to re-create that feel, “like people are coming to our house to hang out,” with Stylus.
ll ages are welcome at Stylus. “There are people who are 21, and there are people who are 80 coming in here,” Krista says. On a recent Sunday, for example, a family of six is sampling Stylus’ brunch menu, which features lighter bites such as a ham and brie croissant ($10) and Caesar salad with bacon ($12), plus mimosas ($11) with choice of orange, grapefruit or mango juice. Krista says the parents had been to Stylus previously and returned with their kids. One of their sons was jazzed about sharing his Billy Joel record, which Robby plays, perhaps recognizing something of himself in the young music fan. “It’s nice for people to bring in their records,” says Robby, who started “Wax Wednesday,” using a corresponding social media hashtag. Bring in an album on Wednesdays and if it’s played (he won’t play records that
might damage the turntable, says Krista), patrons get $1 off their first draft beer or $2 off their first glass of wine. Otherwise, all music comes from Robby’s collection of more than 3,000 albums, neatly organized by genre on shelves behind the bar and flanking equally full shelves of wine bottles. “We usually start off the day with jazz, maybe a little classical, and folk, country and just kind of grow from there,” says Robby, who’s been collecting records since he was 4. His first album? The original cast of Sesame Street. The musician later earned a bachelor’s from New York City’s American Musical and Dramatic Academy and has appeared locally on stage at Spokane Civic Theatre, in addition to performing music. “I used to listen to my dad’s copy of Louis Armstrong and His All Stars from 1956,” Robby adds, noting how that and Glenn Miller Orchestra’s big band sound inspired his early interest in music. Robby also designed the sound system at Stylus, pairing two large, wall-mounted Klipsch Forte III speakers with two Technics turntables and a McIntosh receiver. “We get a lot of audiophiles coming in and as soon as they see that [receiver] they kind of geek out,” says Robby, who’s also started a record club at the bar. For $25 per month, participants get a surprise album like Jeff Buckley’s Grace or David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust. ...continued on page 22

How to use “SENSE OF HOME,” CONTINUED... Robby also hopes to add a singer-songwriter series later this year, emulating Japanese listening bars where the audience is encouraged to engage with the music… versus each other. “Being a musician and playing all over town [for] 16 years — that was my other job; still is my other job — I really wanted to give a place for single or duo acts to play their songs and have a roomful of people listen,” he says.
he couple wants to create community through music, says Krista, who’s also doing that through Stylus’ food and wine offerings. Local products include DOMA coffee in the affogato ($6). MAK Bread baguettes are served with butter and salt ($10; add $1.50 for Nutella or jam), with butter and ham and called jambon buerre ($12), or as an accompaniment to any number of cheese plates ($6-$8) or charcuterie, like the brown sugar and garlic smoked duck breast ($8). Some of the menu items playfully reference music, like the Grateful Dead Sundae ($8) with French vanilla ice cream, caramel, strawberry sauce, fresh fruit and Cap’n Crunch’s berry cereal. Mixed nuts with rosemary called Deez Nuts ($8) reference both an Australian punk band and a Dr. Dre song.

She now makes her own crème fraiche for the Boujee Chips ($8), for example, adding chive oil and tobiko caviar to the chip dip. Her real passion, however, is wine. “I was working at the [now closed] Wine Cellar when I realized that wine was more than going to Safeway and buying a cheap bottle of wine,” she says. Now, she’s obsessed with wine, “not just because it’s delicious to drink and gives you a buzz, but it’s geology, geography, history [and], when you read about it, it’s about the world.” Stylus’ wine list of between 120 and 140 bottles focuses on Pacific Northwest and European wines by the glass and bottle at a range of price points and catering to any palate and experience level of wine drinker, including the absolute novice. “So for me that’s the most fun is to introduce people to things,” Krista says, adding, “This is going to sound so cheesy, but I believe in hospitality.” Her job as a sommelier, after all, is to make people feel at home. n Stylus Wine and Vinyl Bar • 2605 N.

Summertime is play time in the Inland Northwest BY WILL MAUPIN
t is summer and things are happening outside. Sports, activities and recreational opportunities have people up, active and moving around. The best part is, you can join in on the fun, too.
DON’T MISS RIBBY
A night at the ballpark is hard to beat, especially with Avista Stadium’s scenic mountain backdrop. Though, it’s made even better when the home team is scoring runs and winning games, and as of this writing that’s what the Spokane Indians have been doing over the first two months of this season. They’re near the top of the Northwest League in wins and are far and away its highest scoring team, averaging over five runs per game. You’ve got 35 chances left to catch the team in action from June 16 onward before the final home game of the season on Sept. 4. Check the schedule at spokaneindians.com.
The South Hill Bluff is a natural treasure in the middle of the city and a popular spot for outdoor recreation. Hikers and mountain bikers enjoy the trails that run along, and zig-zag up and down, the steep slope. Walkers and road bikers take in the views from the parkway atop the crest. There’s a lot more to the bluff than just the recreational opportunities and sweeping vistas, though. Friends of the Bluff, a nonprofit group that cares for the area, puts on organized, educational walks along the bluff. Jerry White from Spokane Riverkeeper will be leading two walks this month on the topic of the fish and health of Hangman Creek, the first on June 16 and the second on June 21. Video versions of previous walks are available on the Friends of the Bluff website, allowing people to learn about the geology, plants, history, wildlife and creek on their own time. Bluff walks are free to attend, but limited to 15 participants, so make sure to register with Friends of the Bluff at friendsofthebluff.org.

The world’s largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament is set to take over downtown Spokane the weekend of June 25-26, after an absence of more than 1,000 days (2019 was the last time it happened). Kids, grandparents, recreational players and accomplished pros alike will take to the streets to hoop across more than 40 blocks in the city center. Between the basketball, the people-watching and the community spirit, Hoopfest 2022 is set to be the biggest celebration in, and of, Spokane since the start of the pandemic. Visit spokanehoopfest.org for all the details.
If you’ve ever wanted to watch a throng of humans swim for 1.2 miles, then bike for 56 miles before capping the whole thing off with a 13.1-mile run, IRONMAN CDA is for you. Triathletes from around the world will converge on the silver waters of Lake Coeur d’Alene and the forested slopes that surround it on June 26 for the annual race. Spectators can cheer on participants from along the 70.3-mile course, which the most elite competitors can complete in under nine hours. Visit ironman.com/im703coeur-dalene for details.

The long-awaited return of Hoopfest is finally here in 2022.
Are you yearning, for once, to taste sweet victory with your next backyard burger? Cornhole victory, of course. Consider Spokane Parks and Recreation’s five-week summer cornhole league, where you’ll get a chance to hone your skills playing up to six matches per week. Those who are already masters of the bags can sign up for the competitive league and compete against our region’s lawn game greats. Registration is $60 for a two-to-three person team, and is open through July 8 at spokanecity.org.
Imagine golf, but not snooty, not expensive, and with real nature instead of exceedingly manicured greens. Oh yeah, and a disc instead of a ball. That’s disc golf, and it fits perfectly into the ethos, and environment, of the Inland Northwest. Eastern Washington and North Idaho are home to 16 public, full-length courses, plus a number of private ones as well. Some are walking distance from downtown while others are deep in the woods, meaning your next disc golf excursion could be a quick hour on a weekday or an entire trip over a weekend.
Not particularly interested in hanging on for dear life to a giant rock that’s been baking in 100-degree sun all day long, but still looking to climb to the top of something just for fun? Wild Walls in downtown Spokane offers classes for beginners and is a popular spot for experienced climbers as well. Bloc Yard Bouldering Gym on the north side, as the name suggests, caters to boulderers, those who prefer to climb without a rope. Find them at wildwalls.com and blocyardgym.com.

A LOVE GAME
Summer is filled with tons of satisfying little moments. Among the most satisfying of all is the sound of a fresh can of tennis balls being opened and the smell of the pressurized air as it whizzes out. If you’ve never experienced that, it alone is reason enough to grab some gear and head to a local tennis court. Another reason is that tennis is an ideal summer activity for our climate. The fuzzy balls don’t like the rain, which is rarely a problem around here this time of year. A gentle rally might break a light sweat under the pounding midday sun, while an uptempo match in the morning can serve as a phenomenal workout before the oppressive heat rolls in.
There are many games that one can step in and start playing without much, if any, experience — for example, every activity listed above. Golf, however, is different. Hitting a bucket of balls at the driving range is one thing, but making it 18 holes takes skill, and practice. Fortunately, there are lessons. Spokane Parks and Recreation offers lessons from golf professionals at each of the city’s four public courses. Take a few lessons, then spend your summer on the links.
No, it’s not thought of as a summer sport, but the first three college football Saturdays of the season come before the official start of autumn. So, summer sport it is. Our region’s four teams will play six home games before summer’s end, including a big regional battle when Washington State hosts Idaho on Sept. 3. EWU’s home opener is also Sept. 3, while Whitworth waits a week to get going on Sept. 10. n

anito Park is the place to be across all four seasons. I love it in autumn, winter, spring and summer. Growing up on the South Hill, I’ve enjoyed the colorful foliage of autumn, the phenomenal sledding of winter and the beautiful blooms of the gardens in spring. All year long the entire park is perfect. But nothing surpasses a late evening in midsummer at the Loop Drive bridge. For a few weeks around the summer solstice, the sun sets not just in the west but

almost in the north. During those weeks you can stand to the south and watch the sun pass behind the iconic basalt arch of the bridge. As it passes behind the bridge you can see the light it shines without being blinded by the sun itself. Its rays pass through the towering ponderosa pines and leaves of the Lilac Garden, filtering through the greenery into a diffuse golden glow that coats all that can be seen. There is a warmth that emanates from under the bridge, but not for long, because

soon the sun will pass under the arch itself and return to its blinding ways before ultimately setting into darkness. It can only happen for those few weeks when days are this long, but also only during those late hours in which the sun remains above the horizon. By mid-July, the window is closed. The view is still beautiful, but the shadows cast differently. There is only that fleeting window each year, with a similarly fleeting moment in those few evenings, when the park is illuminated like that from the north. You have to be in the right place, at the right time, on the right day, to see it. — WILL MAUPIN

f you’re crawling out of the Inland Northwest’s seemingly perpetual spring weather and craving some creative inspiration, you’re in the right place. Living where we do, we’re lucky to have a plethora of local art galleries and museums right in our backyard that celebrate Native art, traditional art, sculpture and even offer hands-on courses for the artist in all of us. So, if you’re ready to jam-pack your days with all of the art you can get your hands on, take a look at these events that will have you exploring and creating all summer long.
WHAT’S BUZZIN’ AT THE HIVE?
The Hive, Spokane’s relatively new nontraditional public library space, is a building solely dedicated to arts education — not a book or computer in sight. From the studio spaces that the artists-in-residence occupy to the classrooms and workshops, the Hive is filled with creative energy and fosters the desire to learn. If you’re interested in dipping your toes into the world of the Hive and seeing what kind of community they’ve built, you’ll want to drop by for an open studio tour or two this summer. With the artists-in-residence always on rotation, you’ll be poised for new learning opportunities from experienced artists, makers and creators each time you visit and take a gander at what they’re working

on. The tours happen every Wednesday from 4-7 pm and are free to attend. Listening to people talk about their passions can motivate and inspire the next generation of empowered creatives, so the Hive also ensures the community has the opportunity to learn from innovative artists via its artist talk series. An upcoming series highlight is Grace Athena Flott’s presentation about her collaborative portrait project that features members of the burn survivor community, including Flott. Through painting and storytelling, her project celebrates the lived experiences of people with visible scarring. Flott’s talk is June 22 at 6:30 pm.

TAKE A STROLL
Summer is for being outside, getting those steps in and taking in the world around you. Thankfully, art walks exist and are the perfect opportunity to walk around and get a taste of the art your community has to offer. DOWNTOWN COEUR D’ALENE’S SECOND FRIDAY ARTWALK encourages community members to peruse local business, listen to live music and support local businesses on the second Friday of each month from 5-8 pm. MOSCOW’S THIRD THURSDAY ARTWALK features not only visual artists, but culinary, performing and literary artists in host locations throughout its downtown area every third Thursday from 4-8 pm. The rich local art scene in Sandpoint is showcased during the PEND OREILLE ARTS COUNCIL ARTWALK from June 17-Sept. 2, happening daily from 5-8 pm at participating venues. Spokane’s FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK happens each first Friday from 5-8 pm, and June’s version, dubbed the Spokane Queer Artwalk, celebrates Pride Month with art by local queer artists on display at select galleries through June 30.
Art doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg to create. No canvases or acrylic paints needed for an at-home arty party. Creating a nature collage is a great way to get kids and adults alike out of the house and exploring the world around them. Step outside and gather up your supplies: leaves, flowers, pine needles, grass, etc. Next, grab your makeshift canvas — a piece of cardboard from a shoebox or even an old postcard will do — get to arranging your items on your canvas and then glue them down with good ol’ Elmer’s, or ModPodge for a sleeker finish.

Though much smaller than Paris’ most visited museum, the Jundt Art Museum is kind of like Spokane’s version of the Louvre. One big difference between the Jundt and the Louvre: Admission to the Jundt will cost you absolutely nothing. If you find yourself in the area, the Jundt on Gonzaga University’s campus is a treasure trove of art and culture just waiting to be admired. Throughout the summer, the Jundt is hosting exhibitions featuring prints and paintings from its permanent collections, both in the main gallery and the Arcade Gallery. Prints in the showcase include pieces by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Francisco Goya. In addition to this best-of prints showcase, the Jundt also has a show featuring objects from its permanent collection that haven’t ever been shown before. The upcoming New To You Exhibition opens Aug. 27 with over 60 works that haven’t been on display since the Jundt opened in 1995. Visiting this exhibition is a great way to get to know your local art museum. Visit the Jundt Monday through Saturday, from 10 am-4 pm, all summer long.

If you’re serious about this whole art thing and want to get in the middle of the action, Spokane Art School offers myriad classes for artists of various skill levels and areas of interest. Maybe start with an art history course to brush up on your knowledge and then attend a basic drawing class with local artist Tom Quinn to gain some foundational drawing skills. After that you can attempt a stop-motion animation class or even portrait drawing. Maybe you’ll paint the next Mona Lisa? You’ll never know unless you try.

am mostly an indoor phenomenon. Beach days don’t often make it into my personal calendar and the thought of being outside on an 80-plus degree day makes my pale skin crawl. A semblance of relief is found only in an air-conditioned room or by floating in a pool all day long. Otherwise, the heat renders me unmovable. In an attempt to graduate from inside to outside, one summer I took things into my own hands and tried to find outdoor activities I would wholeheartedly enjoy and look forward to doing rather than making a permanent indent in my living room couch once again. Gardening was all right, but keeping everything alive was a different story. Hiking seemed better in my mind, and kayaking will never be my thing. I finally found my solace in John A. Finch Arboretum. I’m not sure if there’s a place on Earth that

I love more than the bench under the cluster of ginkgo trees or the bridge that skates over the small creek running the length of the park. I’ve read over 20 books under the trees at the arboretum, and I’ve taken many a nap while being shaded by one of the giant, looming oak trees. More and more, I found myself hanging out with the trees in relative silence instead of complaining about the heat to whoever would listen. The trees not only gave me shade and company, but they also provided comfort and a reason to come back. Once fall comes around, I slowly make my way around to the trees I’ve spent the entirety of my summer with and say goodbye. The ginkgos’ leaves are turning yellow and the oaks’ red, but next year they’ll be back in vibrant hues of green. I no longer dread summer days. It’s quite the opposite, actually. —MADISON PEARSON

K, we can all agree that gas prices aren’t necessarily making the good ol’ summer road trip nearly as enticing this year. That said, it’s hard to match the feeling of getting out to explore the many beautiful events and places within just a few hours’ drive in the Northwest. Roll down those windows, take your most fuel-efficient vehicle, and plan to get out and see some of the spectacular places your regional “backyard” has to offer.
LIGHTING UP GRAND COULEE
Grand Coulee Dam (about an hour and 40 minutes from downtown Spokane) is the largest hydropower facility in the country and quite the feat of human engineering to behold in person. Each summer, people flock to the area not just to tour the dam, but for the return of the nighttime laser light show depicting the history of the region and dam’s construction right on the side of the dam itself. You can catch the light show every night at 10 through July 31. Starting Aug. 1 the show starts at 9:30 pm, then on Sept. 1 it begins at 8:30 pm, continuing through Sept. 30. You don’t need a ticket to watch, as the show can be viewed from parking sites across from the dam. Daily public tours are also offered at the John W. Keys III Pump-Generating Plant, on a first-come, first-served basis, at 10 am, noon, 2 pm and 3:30 pm. The tours run about an hour, and while you can bring cameras, no bags are allowed. For a fun trip and a shorter drive to bed after the light show, consider camping at nearby Steamboat Rock State Park, about 20 minutes away.
ESCAPE TO PRIEST LAKE
If you want a peaceful camping trip tucked in among the trees and near (or on) the beaches of Priest Lake, the Lionhead unit at the north end of the lake offers small campsites that get you out into nature to enjoy the beautiful waters of North Idaho. Need help keeping your family’s focus on the trip and not on their phones? There’s limited to no cell reception within this park (roughly 2.5 hours from Spokane), which can make it easier to put down the technology and embrace the natural experience. From here, you can swim, boat, relax on the beach, and access nearby hiking trails. Make sure to get a reservation for your campsite before heading out at reserveamerica.com.

WHEN IN WALLA WALLA
Wine lovers are likely already aware of the bounty of wineries throughout Washington, but it never hurts to mention again that Walla Walla abounds with wine tasting and entertainment opportunities. For those who want more than just some fermented grapes, Tranche Estate (about three hours from Spokane) offers a live music series throughout the summer, so you can sit back and enjoy some food, wine, and good tunes. Bring chairs and blankets (but not outside alcohol) to enjoy the music series on Fridays and Saturdays. There’s no cover charge, and the events are kid-friendly. Learn about who’s playing each week at tranche.wine, and learn about other Walla Walla wine events at wallawallawine.com.
Walla Walla has more to offer than wine — but we really love the wine.
OUT IN THE ORCHARD
If you’re looking to get an up-close experience picking your own cherries, peaches, nectarines and other summer fruits, head toward Wenatchee and check out Stutzman Ranch (about 3 hours from Spokane), where U-pick options adjust throughout the season starting in late June. It’s a good idea to bring your own bucket or box, as well as a wagon to cart your picked fruit in. The orchard has a $5 per person minimum for the fruit you buy, which should be easy to reach as you
load up on fresh fruit to take home and enjoy right away, or to use for pies, jams, and other recipes. Pets aren’t allowed, but the orchard is kid-friendly, and you’re allowed to snack while out picking. Just be sure to thoroughly wash any fruit before you eat it so you remove any of the pesticides, dust, animal poop, or other germs that may be on the skin. Find more information at thestutzmanranch.com.
Huckleberry lovers should head to Wallace, Idaho, (about an hour and 15 minutes from Spokane) the weekend of Aug. 19-20 to participate in a 5k fun run and enjoy huckleberry treats from lots of local vendors. In addition to the fun run, there also will be a kids’ play area, pancake breakfast, live music, food booths, art vendors and more during the weekend event. Find out more at wallacehuckfest.com. While there, if the run isn’t enough of an adventure, consider heading to Lookout Pass (about 20 minutes east of Wallace) to rent some bikes and then go a few more miles east to start at the upper trailhead of the Route of the Hiawatha trail. Converted from an old railroad route and traversing chilly, pitch-black tunnels once used by trains, the trail is a popular trip for summertime visitors. The Wallace District Mining Museum (check ahead for hours at 208-556-1592) is also a great stop to learn about the Silver Valley’s long history of mining. n

READY FOR A NEW WAY TO GAME?
THE ROADSIDE DINER
ew things taste as delicious or rewarding as a hot meal in a place you’ve never been before after a long day of travel. Whether you just finished a 10-mile hike or sat in the car for a few hours and need a breather, it feels special to pop into a roadside diner, local pub or hole-in-the-wall restaurant on a whim. Sure, the spoons may be greasy, your doctor might shudder at the calorie counts on that burger so loaded up you can’t put it down the whole time you eat it, and the regulars may give you a sideways look when you pop a squat at their usual haunt. But, man, do those meals have a way of making a special mark on your heart. Probably a decade ago, I took a solo backpacking trip on the Olympic Peninsula, and I still remember the delicious, juicy burger I got at Fat Smitty’s that was so big I felt like I had to unhinge my jaw to take a bite. After leaving shows at the Gorge Amphitheatre, my friends and I have been known to stop by Bob’s Cafe in Moses Lake for some tasty pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and eggs. Moose Knuckle Burgers and Brew in Coolin, Idaho, helped a hungry stomach on the way back from camping at Lionhead on Priest Lake a couple summers ago, as did Giorgi’s in Rathdrum on our way back from another trip. Lastly, I’m reminded of a summer love lost. Each summer my friends and I go camping out at Lake Pend Oreille, and after discovering (with the help of a friend in the know) how freaking delicious the cornbread was at Panhandler Pies Restaurant and Bakery in Sandpoint, I would regularly pop in to get several orders to go to bring back to our campsite. Sadly, the owners closed shop earlier this year, and as they’re hoping to sell the business and the super special sweets recipes along with it, they’re holding off on sharing any of the magic for now. So, dear readers, if someone could please, please buy this business so we can have this decadent, cake-like cornbread back in our lives, you’d be taking up the helm of yet another memory-making roadside treasure! — SAMANTHA WOHLFEIL

Pullman’s National Lentil Festival really lets you get into the local agricultural staple. ANDREW LANG PHOTO
Dig in and celebrate all things delicious this summer BY CARRIE SCOZZARO
ood is love. It is fuel for our bodies. It is our culture, our history, and an important part of our everyday lives. It is also an industry and a powerful economic driver that impacts us all. This summer, explore the many faces of food, from fun events and DIY projects to unusual classes and opportunities to participate in the local food system.
THE NORTHWEST’S BEST CELEBRITY GOLF TOURNAMENT & CHARITY EVENT
CELEBRITY GOLF FOOD TRUCKS ENTERTAINMENT BEER GARDEN FIGHTING CANCER
OK, so this cooking class is actually centered on Erika Kubick’s book, Cheese, Sex, Death: A Bible for the Cheese Obsessed, but events that connect sex and food are definitely intriguing. For $85, Wanderlust Delicato will guide participants through two hours of cheese-forward recipes like gool ol’ mac n’ cheese and a fancier dish called clafoutis with apples and rich Camembert cheese. Reserve your spot for the June 29 class at Spokane’s quintessential cheese purveyor via wanderlustdelicato.com/spokane-cooking-classes.
GARDEN TEA PARTY
Can you think of a more delightful place to have a tea party than amid fields of flowers? Grumpy Chicken Farm in Sandpoint is hosting four such events this summer: July 24 and 30, and Aug. 13 and 21. Tickets are $45 for adults, $30 for children. You’re encouraged to dress to impress for this light meal with all manner of hot and cold teas, scratch-made shortbreads, scones, cookies, tea sandwiches and more. Price includes a beautiful bouquet to bring home. Visit grumpychickenfarm.com or call 208-274-3358.
Lentils are members of the collection of superfoods called pulses, whose cousins include peas and beans. They’re also the focus of the National Lentil Festival, Aug. 19-20 in Pullman. As it has done nearly every year since 1989, the free event features a citywide celebration of lentils, the primary food export of the Palouse. Not sure how to cook lentils? Check out the cooking demos. Get to the event on Friday to sample the huge lentil chili cookoff, while Saturday means lentil pancakes from the Lions Club. Non-lentil foods and assorted beverages will also be featured, like beer from Pullman’s Paradise Creek Brewery and wine from Merry Cellars. Other festivities include a parade, live music, and assorted sporting events to watch and participate in. Visit lentilfest.com.

Is it a music festival with food? Or a food festival with live music? It’s both at Pig Out in the Park, the Riverfront Park extravaganza from Aug. 31-Sept. 5 that also marks the end of summer. The event is free, but you’ll want to bring moolah to sample some of the 245 menu items spread out over 50 food booths. This year’s event includes three beer gardens and a big public market to waddle through as you give the ol’ tummy a rest from eating and drinking. Visit pigoutinthepark.com.
One of the coolest things about living or working near downtown Spokane during summer is taking a walk to grab a lunch for eating outdoors. Find several food options in one place every Friday at Wall Street and Main Avenue through Aug. 26. The area is closed to vehicular traffic on Food Truck Fridays from 11 am-2 pm. Participating trucks include Tacos Camargo, Toby’s BBQ, Mixed Plate and Jerusalem, which serves Middle Eastern cuisine like crispy falafel and tender chicken shawarma. Visit greaterspokanefoodtrucks.com.
What’s family-friendly, food-oriented and bound to make you feel good, too? Volunteering with the Spokane Edible Tree Project, which needs your help gleaning food that would otherwise go to waste from such places as Green Bluff Growers and select farmers markets. Gleaned food gets redistributed to area food banks and others in need throughout the Inland Northwest. “As the fruit season gets going, there will be more opportunities for commercial and residential fruit gleaning that will be updated throughout the season on our social media as well as newsletters,” says the group’s gleaning coordinator, Drew Clarkson. Find out more June 25 at Big Barn Brewing (16004 N. Applewood Ln., Mead) during a free informational event from 2-4 pm. There will be food trucks on-site and beverages available from Big Barn’s Bodacious Berries, Fruits & Brews. Visit spokaneedibletreeproject.org or call 509-609-6833.

BEAT THE HEAT
Necessity is the mother of invention, as the saying goes, and last summer necessity forced many to rethink food in light of the extreme heat. Eating cold foods and grilling are two obvious options, and while ice cream for every meal sounds tempting, there are other solutions. How about roasted meats, moist cakes and perfectly cooked bread? If that sounds good, consider solar cooking. You can buy a cooker — REI sells them for $249 — or make your own with materials you’re likely to have around the house, such as a box, aluminum foil, tape and a thermometer. Solar-cooking kits have gained traction throughout the world, including through Solar Cookers International. Find out more at solarcooking.fandom.com.
A local outdoor event with amazing food and beverages for adults only? Sign us up. Of all the summer foodie festivals, Crave! NW at CenterPlace in Spokane Valley is geared toward the culinarily committed and curious alike, providing they’re 21 or older. Even better, the open-air event is back to its original format of three days, from July 14-16. Instead of driving all over town to try food from your favorite places like Arbor Crest, Baba Spokane, Kismet, Madeleine’s, Tavolàta and Zona Blanca, Crave! NW lets you eat as much as you’d like in one place, plus you get to try food from regional and national chefs, like Felipe Hernandez, whose tamales have people traveling to Central Washington from all over the country. Each day has a different theme. Thursday is the burger “smackdown,” with chefs vying for your votes and live wrestling providing the entertainment. On Friday, sample dishes from around the world as you enjoy live music and a carnival-like atmosphere. And on Saturday, chefs are bringin’ the heat following a “fire & smoke” theme as tribal dancers and drummers entertain guests. Advance tickets start at $49, depending on the event, and slightly higher to get in an hour before the 6-9 pm general admission, because there’s so much to see — and taste — at this popular event. Also ask about package deals and group rates. Visit cravenw.com. n

SENSE OF PLACE
hen I moved to North Idaho in 1995, I never expected to fall in love. The company for which I worked was one of many lured from California in the ’90s, and my job involved helping hire and train new employees. During one marathon screening session, I was distracted by the most spectacular sunset. It was just after rainfall in the gloaming hour, with trees and buildings silhouetted against a neon sky with gold, orange, blue, purple and pink. Stunning. “Would you mind if I ran outside and snapped a photo?” I asked the fellow I was interviewing. He smiled and I knew he knew — the same way I hope everyone gets to experience — the magic of the moment. I was not yet 30, on a grand adventure, and I fell hard for the Pacific Northwest that summer. This was different from the sultry South of my preteens or the reassuring rhythm of the North-
east’s four-season cycle during an otherwise tumultuous young adulthood. Nor was it the exciting romance I had with New York City’s urban energy or powerful oceans I’d known on both coasts. This was open prairie, incessant winds and the mournful song of distant trains. The lotion-y scent of mint fields at night. Footfalls on forest paths muffled by dense cedar duff. Canfield Mountain turned lavender at dusk like “America the Beautiful’s” purple mountain majesties. The lake, everchanging, everpresent. Although at the time I lacked words for what I experienced, I know now that it’s a sense of place, a visceral connectedness like falling in love. That sunset photo is long gone. Places I remember have changed, as have I. But my love for this land — this place — and its people has not. This is home. — CARRIE SCOZZARO

Five summer events to keep your thirst quenched
ummer and drinking go hand in hand. There’s no denying it. A cold beverage just tastes better on a beach, in the middle of a lake or in the woods surrounded by green trees and blue skies. While we wait for the hot weather to finally arrive, here are five intoxicating events we’re already preparing for.
30 INLANDER SUMMER GUIDE 2022
BY DEREK HARRISON
Hogwash Whiskey Den has been crushing the craft cocktail game in Spokane since it opened in 2016. Now, Hogwash’s Simon Francis Moorby is partnering with Renée Cebula of Raising the Bar — a vintage barware shop and cocktail culture expert — to host Camp Cocktail. The three interactive classes are spread across summer at the Den and explore the drinks of three iconic American cities. The summer series starts on Sunday, June 26 with New York City night. Master mixologist Moorby walks “campers” through the step-by-step process
of three drinks while cocktail historian Cebula explains how each relates to the Empire City. Camp Cocktail then heads to San Francisco (July 31) and New Orleans (Aug. 21). Classes start at 5 pm and include bartending stations equipped with tools, fresh ingredients and vintage glassware, as well as appetizers and a recipe booklet that guests can take home. Tickets ($65) are available at raisingthebarnw.com/event or by searching “Camp Cocktail” on Eventbrite.
Don’t let the name fool you. The Labor Day weekend festival up at Schweitzer is one of the biggest drinking events of the summer. Over the course of four days (Sept. 2-5), 80 beers, ciders, seltzers and wines are available for sampling with live music and sightseeing via the Great Escape Quad chairlift. Whether you’re planning on bringing a designated driver or your kids, or you just want to enjoy the views, there’s also a fancy soda station for nonalcoholic imbibement. Add some lodging to the festivities, and you won’t even have to worry about the drive home. Head to schweitzer.com to find out more information.
AMONG THE PINES
BARONESSE BARLEY HARVEST DAY
If you’re looking for a road trip, hop in your car on Saturday, Aug. 20 and head to Colfax for the Baronesse Barley Harvest Day — trust us. Joseph’s Grainery kicked off this one-of-a-kind experience in 2018. Since then it’s only gotten better. LINC Malt joins the farmer with regional brewers and distillers for a day of sampling beer and spirits in the Palouse. Listen to the music of local band Tone Sober while the Joseph’s Grainery crew harvests the 2022 crop. Where else can you sip on brews and booze while standing in the very field where the barley in your glass was grown? They call it a “full circle moment,” and we have to agree. Sure, gas is expensive, but it’s free to register, and it’s definitely worth the commute. Secure your pint glass and directions to the party at josephsgrainery.com.
32 INLANDER SUMMER GUIDE 2022
When two quality Spokane breweries team up, you know nothing but greatness will follow. That’s what happened when YaYa Brewing Company partnered with Precious Things Fermentation Project to launch the inaugural Among the Pines beer festival last year. The event, nestled in the woods adjacent to the Precious Things taproom, featured 13 local breweries, unlimited pours and a collaboration wild ale bottle for each attendee. It’s returning Sunday, Sept. 4, from 12-4 pm, and already has more than 20 breweries committed to participating. Among those serving beer under the trees this year are Whistle Punk, Brick West, Golden Handle Project and Garland Brew Werks. The festival also serves as a charity event benefiting the LiveLikeLara Foundation. The nonprofit, named in honor of YaYa owners Chris and Jason Gass’ late sister Lara, raises money for various charities and its scholarship fund. More details to come at livelikelara.org. Space is limited (last year’s event sold out quick) so follow along and make sure to snag your tickets when they’re available. n
P L AY. D R I N K . This annual event to raise funds for the North Idaho portion of the Centennial Trail returns to Coeur d’Alene’s City Park on Saturday, Aug. 20. Local craft beer, wine and cider will be flowing while Kyle Richard (2-5 pm) and the Jam Shack Band (5-8 pm) provide live tunes. The best part? All proceeds go to the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation, meaning every cent from each ticket sold supports the preservation and development of the trail. Ride your bike to the park and take advantage of a free bike corral. Tickets start at $35 with a VIP option available for $55. Get details at nictf.org/ales.

38 INLANDER SUMMER GUIDE 2022
ater is a hot topic right now. The bad news is that the days of frolicking in your front yard while the sprinkler runs wild may be numbered. As water grows scarce, a new ordinance from Spokane City Council will limit yard watering to four days a week at certain times of the day. Mayor Nadine Woodward — wary of turning neighbors into sprinkler snitches — tried to veto the measure, but was overridden. It’s probably a good time to cool it on the lawn-watering. But here’s the good news: If you’re hot, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the water that won’t get you in trouble with the hydro cops. Read on for some fun, sustainable ways to cool off.
PADDLE THE LITTLE SPOKANE
Don’t let the name fool you. The Little Spokane River offers as much fun as the main Spokane River it feeds into. The gentler size and flow make it perfect for kayaking. You can rent kayaks through the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Department for $49. The rental includes a kayak, paddle, whistle, self-guided tour map, life jacket and shuttle service to the put-in spot at St. George’s. From there, you’ll enjoy a 6-mile, self-guided paddle through a breathtaking wildland area home to deer, moose, osprey, waterfowl, fish and other wild creatures. The rental season runs from July 2 through Sept. 4. Kayaks can be picked up starting at 11 am and are due back by 4 pm. More at spokanerec.org.
There’s nothing quite like whitewater to get the adrenaline flowing. WILEY E. WATERS PHOTO
RIDE SOME RIVER WAVES
The Spokane River is iconic. And what better way to get to know the river than to spend an afternoon being tossed around by its whitewater? Pangaea River Rafting offers guided rafting trips down the Spokane River at $79 for adults and $69 for kids. Wiley E. Waters has a similar guided trip at $69 for adults and $64 for kids. Each trip lasts a couple of hours and climaxes with the Spokane River’s most famous rapids: Bowl and Pitcher and Devil’s Toenail. The rapids both score a class three on the international scale of river difficulty (six is the highest). Class three rapids generally come with moderate, irregular waves; they’re manageable for beginners but still exciting enough to get your adrenaline pumping. The Bowl and Pitcher rapid is located under the wooden bridge by Riverside State Park. It’s fast-paced and heart-pounding. Devil’s Toenail comes shortly after, with a series of twists and turns guaranteed to get you at least a little bit wet. Visit pangaeariverrafting.com. If you’re looking for adventure on the other side of the border, try the ROW Adventure Center in Coeur d’Alene. The organization runs an all-day rafting trip on the Moyie River, a little-known gem with class two and three rapids that cut through the rugged pine and cedar forests of North Idaho. Trips are available June 4 through July 5 at $135. More info at rowadventurecenter.com and riverrafting.net.

CATCH SOME FISH
If rafting down whitewater sounds too fast-paced, you can slow things down with the gentlest of aquatic sports — fishing. When you’re ready to cast a reel, Liberty Lake is a fantastic place to start. The lake is open for fishing from March 1 through Oct. 31. During the warmer summer months, you can find large and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and other prized warm water species. The lake is known for having one of the best brown bullhead fisheries in the area. If fly-fishing is more your speed, the Spokane River and Grande Ronde River are great places to start. For Idaho, try the St. Joe River or the North Fork of Coeur d’Alene.
HEAR SOME TUNES ON THE LAKE
There’s something about boats that just makes everything a bit more fun. Sure, you can catch one of the hundreds of concerts on land in the Inland Northwest this summer, but if you’re looking to spice it up, why not catch a show on a boat? Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises has six concerts scheduled for its Bands on Boats Summer Concert Series. Tickets start at $36.50. Spokane-based artist Jerry Lee Raines is headlining on Aug. 25. Visit cdacruises.com/bands-onboats for details.
SOAK UP A SPLASH PAD
Kids and families looking to stay cool can check out one of Spokane’s 19 splash pads. The pads are open from 9 am-8 pm daily between May 27 and Sept. 6. They’re located at: • Audubon Park • Carlson Park • Chief Garry Park • Coeur d’Alene Park • Franklin Park • Friendship Park • Glass Park • Grandview Park • Manito Park • Pacific Park • Thornton Murphy Park • Riverfront Park: Ice Age Floods Playground • Riverfront Park: Rotary Fountain • Shadle Park • Underhill Park Splash pads sporadically close for maintenance. You can call 509625-6960 to check for hours and closures.
SWIM NEXT TO A LONG BRIDGE
The annual Long Bridge Swim in Lake Pend Oreille is a great way to get in the water and test your swimming chops. The event was started in 1995 by local swimming enthusiast Eric Ridgway. The 1.76mile swim across Lake Pend Oreille draws hundreds of swimmers every year. Because the swim runs parallel to the Long Bridge into Sandpoint, family and friends can run alongside to cheer (or heckle!) the swimmers as they paddle their way to the finish line. This year, the Long Bridge Swim is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 6. Register at longbridgeswim.org. Money raised by the event goes to swimming lessons for local youth.
CHECK OUT A WATERFALL
The 198-foot Palouse Falls is Washington’s official state waterfall. They are stunningly gorgeous — and massive. Go in early summer to experience the full force of the snow runoff. The falls are just off the Snake River, about a two-hour drive from Spokane. If that’s too far, try checking out the Spokane Falls in the heart of the city. Huntington Park is a great place for an up-close view. For an aerial view, try the gondola. Tickets are free for children under 2, $5.75 for children 2-12 and $7.75 for adults. The ride lasts about 15 minutes. Tickets can be purchased at riverfrontspokane.com or on-site. n

WHEN THE VIRUS FORCED US OUTSIDE
love playing guitar, but pre-pandemic, I would never have considered doing it outdoors. The acoustics are weird, there’s no electricity, and I was worried about irritating fellow park-goers. But then the virus hit, and the sweaty, cramped basement where I used to practice with my friends suddenly felt like a COVID petri dish. Taking the tunes outside felt like the only option. On a sunny day sometime in summer 2020, my friends and I hauled a stripped-down drum kit, an guitar and a battery-powered keyboard to a Macoustic eth ow nearby park to play music together for the first time R since. the pandemic started. It didn’t sound great. The drums crashed and echoed across the field, and the tiny . piano was barely audible. Still, it felt liberatelectric Twisp R ing. I couldn’t help but wonder why we hadn’t done this before. As we launched into a sketchy cover of Chicago’s “Saturday in the Park,” a neighbor I’d never met came up to us, and we chatted for Lake Chela n what felt like hours. En tia Other parts of my life were also t R. Litt le W forced outdoors. In the fall of 2020, I met weekly with ena tch college classmates to study together in chilly grass ee R . fields. When cases spiked in January, I sat in a socially Nason R. distanced circle in a friend’s backyard for the rainiest, coldest New Year’s Eve party of my life. Icicle R Times have changed. Gathering in a poorly W . en atchee ventilated basement is no longer a public health faux R pas. But. still, a part of me misses the days when going outside was the only real way to socialize in groups. Trying to adapt an indoor activity to the outside is often inconvenient and challenging, but it offers a new perspective, and a fresh look at what it means to be Ya ki together. m Even if we don’t have to anymore, I hope we’ll a R. remember how fun it is to take the party outside. — NATE SANFORD

hether you’re into contemporary outdoor spins on Shakespeare, massive Broadway hits, regional one-act play festivals or just quirky musicals about nuns, this summer’s theater will leave you spoiled for choice.
If you’ve taken your time reading this issue, you’re at risk of missing three noteworthy shows. PASS OVER (until June 19), Antoinette Nwandu’s acclaimed play about two Black men seeking the promised land, is in the final weekend of its three-week run at Spokane’s Stage Left Theater. Likewise, time’s running out to catch Spokane Civic Theatre’s 32ND PLAYWRIGHTS’ FORUM FESTIVAL, a showcase of one-acts by regional playwrights. The festival runs in two rotations of roughly five plays each until June 19. Fortunately, you still have just over a week to catch Spokane Ensemble Theatre’s contemporary take on the Shakespearean rom-com MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING (until June 26) in the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture’s amphitheater.

SPOKANE VALLEY SUMMER THEATRE
“There seems to be something special about each show” in Spokane Valley Summer Theatre’s 2022 season, says Managing Director Marnie Rorholm. For THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY (June 17-26), that special something is the hiring of an Equity union actor, J. Clayton Winters, to play the lead opposite local talent Andrea Olsen as Francesca. “This is the first time we’ve done that. Most of the time we want to search locally and hire locally, but in this case, we cast a wider net. He’s amazing and is going to be really dazzling in the role of Robert Kincaid,” she says. On top of that, this run marks the regional premiere of this musical adaptation of Robert James Waller’s enduring heartland romance story. What makes NEWSIES (July 8-24) unique is that the theater’s rented a former Broadway set designed exclusively for this Disney film turned hit musical about young news sellers leading a charge against the unfair practices of publishing magnates. Rorholm describes it as a “phenomenal” three-story scaffold structure that can be dynamically reconfigured for different numbers and scenes. Along with lending the show some extra glitz, it’s giving the theater’s camp and theater education students the opportunity to work with a Broadway-quality set. The remarkable thing about SISTER ACT (Aug. 5-21) might be less visible but is no less important. For this gospel-infused comedy musical about a lounge singer who joins a convent as part of the witness protection program, a large portion of the cast has stuck with it throughout the pandemic downtime. “It was cast back in February of 2020, and now in 2022 we’re finally able to perform it with all the original ‘nuns’ who committed to this project,” Rorholm says. “We’re calling this the blockbuster season because, coincidentally, all of these shows have been a movie at one time or another. And this is our first full season after two years. We’re thrilled about it, and we think that audiences will be just as excited as we are.” Get tickets at svsummertheatre.com.
PLAYTIME IN THE PARK
Geared for midteens to young twenty-somethings with at least a smidgen of experience on the stage, Spokane Civic Theatre’s Summer in the Park (June 28-Aug. 20) is a program of eight different performing arts classes to hone your acting chops. There are dedicated workshops on improv, comedy, drama, playwriting and even tried-and-tested Shakespearean techniques, not to mention weekly “Play in a Week” camps throughout the summer. Groups meet at the Civic before heading down to the Forestry Shelter in Riverfront Park. Find more info at spokanecivictheatre.com.

Did you feel that? The temperature just went up. It must be because the STCU Best of Broadway series is bringing the hottest musicals in the theater world to the First Interstate Center for the Performing Arts this summer, starting with HADESTOWN (July 5-10), an award-winning modern retelling of the ancient Orphic myth. That’s followed by COME FROM AWAY (Aug. 9-14), which recounts how a small town showed its big heart during the 9/11 attacks. And a scorching new production of the ’60s-inspired HAIRSPRAY (Sept. 20-25) keeps the dance party going after the solstice. Find tickets at broadwayspokane.com.

PERFORM LIKE THE PROS
Kids and teens who want to return to school in the autumn as triple threats — that is, actors, singers and dancers — might be inclined to sign up for THE MAGIC OF BROADWAY day camps offered by Christian Youth Theater (CYT) Spokane. These two one-week sessions July 11-29 will give 8- to 18-year-olds the chance to perform songs, choreography and scripts from famous Broadway Musicals. CYT North Idaho, meanwhile, will offer a full slate of weeklong camps: SURF’S UP! (July 11-15), LITTLE RASCALS (July 18-22), BROADWAY: NEXT GENERATION (July 25-29) and Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL JR. (Aug. 1-7). Aimed at newcomers and seasoned performers alike, each camp has a different age-appropriate grouping.

COEUR D’ALENE SUMMER THEATRE
After six seasons at the Kroc Center, followed by two years of COVID hiatus, Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre is back on the stage of the Schuler Performing Arts Center (SPAC) at North Idaho College. “The [Schuler] is a big part of the excitement of coming back,” says Executive Artistic Director Chuck Etheridge. “It has 1,160 seats versus the just under 400 seating capacity of the Kroc Center. It’s just a much bigger venue with more seats and a big orchestra pit. We love the Kroc, but the SPAC has always felt like home.” The theater is capitalizing on that extra space by going big, big, big — starting with the more than 50-person combined cast and orchestra of MAMMA MIA! (July 1-10). This jukebox musical about the topsy-turviness of love and marriage is built around a playlist of ABBA’s pop hits, including “Dancing Queen,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” “Take a Chance on Me,” “Super Trouper” and, of course, “Mamma Mia.” Next up is LITTLE WOMEN (July 22-31), a musical based on the hugely successful 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott. It chronicles the

YOUNG KWAK PHOTO
formative years of the March sisters, with focus often falling on Jo, the headstrong aspiring writer of the bunch. Incidentally, this musical also features a song called “Take a Chance on Me,” but it’s set a good 100 years before ABBA’s heyday. Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre rounds out its 2022 season with NUNSENSE (Aug. 12-21), which turned a clever line of greeting cards into a global phenomenon and a long-running entertainment franchise. It’s a delightfully ridiculous tale of the surviving members of a convent staging a chaotic variety show in an attempt to offload a few frozen corpses. Etheridge says the summer lineup includes “some of the best pop music ever written,” “one of the best stories and best American novels ever written,” and “one of the funniest musicals ever written.” “These might sound like superlative descriptors, but they’re true,” he adds. “It really is just an amazing season.” Tickets for the 2022 season are at cdasummertheatre.com.
This year, the Pend Oreille Players received 78 one-act play scripts from around the world and whittled them down to just eight. Now it’s time to perform those winning entries as part of their annual One-Act Play Festival at the Pend Oreille Playhouse in Newport. You can catch all eight of them daily Aug. 12-14. Better yet, conquer your stage fright and audition for a role July 11-12. There’s a total of 22 roles for actors ages 18 to 80; get the inside scoop at pendoreilleplayers.com.
Join the Spokane Shakespeare Society (aka S3) as they reimagine the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet. Directed by Jeffrey Phillips Christiansen, this production reframes things from the point of view of the two titular star-crossed lovers. Spoiler alert: Things still don’t go so well. Live performances take place under the Pavilion in Riverfront Park from July 21-31, Thursday through Sunday. Learn more at spokaneshakespearesociety.org.
Jointly co-directed by Josephine Keefe of Spokane Ensemble Theatre and Jeremy Whittington of Stage Left Theater, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is about a rock singer whose sex-change operation goes wrong, leaving her disfigured, tormented and challenged to find happiness in love and music. Told through a musical language that draws deeply on glam rock and proto punk, this fiery show, running July 29-31 at the Bing Crosby Theater, has been an award magnet and popular hit since it debuted in 1998. n

Where to find solace and fun when wildfire smoke or high heat hits the Inland Northwest this summer
BY CHEY SCOTT
f recent summers are any preview, it’s best to be prepared for the chance your outdoor summer plans could go awry. You know, when a blanket of lung-damaging wildfire smoke descends on the region for weeks, or another 100-degree-plus heat wave makes stepping outside feel like a tormenting blast of hellfire. Maybe it’s even a rainy day, considering we’ve had such a wet spring. Heading to the mall or a movie is an easy option, but we dug a little deeper for these alternatives.
GO TO THE MUSEUM

54 INLANDER SUMMER GUIDE 2022
With the bliss of air conditioning and enough to see and do that you’ll be occupied for at least an hour or more, museums are the perfect reprieve when it’s hot, smoky, rainy or otherwise unpleasant. Among the region’s museums that range from smaller, community-run venues to the region’s go-to, the MAC, here are some exhibit highlights to put on your summer to-do list. Families and film buffs alike can enjoy the NORTHWEST MUSEUM OF ARTS & CULTURE’S marquee summer exhibit, Dreamworks Animation: The Exhibition — From Sketch to Screen, on display through Sept. 1. Learn all about the art and technology that brought films like Kung Fu Panda to life. Other exhibits you’ll want to see at the MAC include a look back on the region’s wheat industry in Golden Harvest: Flour Sacks from the Permanent Collection (through Oct. 30), plus the Native culture- and history-focused Awakenings: Traditional Canoes and Calling the Salmon Home (through Aug. 21). Find hours, admission and more at northwestmuseum.org. Take a drive to Washington State University’s JORDAN SCHNITZER MUSEUM OF ART, which has two main showcases: Our Stories, Our Lives: Irwin Nash Photographs of Yakima Valley Migrant Labor and Keiko Hara: Four Decades of Paintings and Prints. The Irwin Nash collection features photos of migrant farm laborers from 1967-1976 amid a period of rising labor and protest movements. The spotlight on Keiko Hara is a retrospective of the Walla Wallabased artist’s career as a Japanese woodblock printmaker. Admission is free; find info at museum.wsu.edu. History lovers and railroad aficionados can head east or west to get their fill of rail-centric museums in Wallace, Idaho, or Reardan, Washington. Go east on I-90 to get to the NORTHERN PACIFIC DEPOT MUSEUM, where visitors learn about the essential role railroads had in developing the Silver Valley’s legendary mining industry, and how the historic depot was physically moved and preserved at its current site. The depot remains mostly unchanged since its days as a regional hub, from 1901 to 1978. Learn more at npdepot.org. Go west on Highway 2 and just past Reardan, you’ll see an unusually placed collection of train cars off in a field. That’s the INLAND NW RAIL MUSEUM, which resided at the Spokane Interstate Fairgrounds for 30 years before reopening at its current location in 2016. From model train displays to restored train cars and equipment, plus its mini train ride, “The Reardan Rocket,” there’s tons to see and explore. Hours, admission prices and a special event schedule are at inlandrailnwmuseum.com. Even more regional museums are waiting to be explored, including the SPOKANE VALLEY HERITAGE MUSEUM (spokanevalleymuseum.com), Coeur d’Alene’s MUSEUM OF NORTH IDAHO (museumni.org) and the HISTORIC FLIGHT FOUNDATION (historicflight.org) at Felts Field.

CLEAN OUT YOUR BASEMENT
No, really. An ideal time to retreat to the cool confines of underground concrete walls is when it’s hottest or smokiest outdoors. If you’re like me, your basement has at least a few piles of “stuff” that needs dealing with, whether stashing it in more organized fashion, selling it online or donating it to a local nonprofit. For the latter, consider places like the Arc of Spokane, YWCA Spokane’s women’s clothing bank, World Relief Spokane, Teen & Kid Closet and other locally run groups. When you’ve finished, you’ll feel so good. Crack a cold one — you deserve it!

TAKE A LOCAL LIBRARY TOUR
Several Spokane Public Library branches have recently been rethought and revamped as public spaces for learning, gathering and idea sharing. While checking out some good summer reads is a must, there’s lots more to see and do at those reopened branches, which also offer a welcoming, cool and smoke-free environment when being outside (or at home) is unbearable. When the SHADLE PARK branch reopened last fall, it debuted several new amenities, including the “Moose’s Market” children’s play area, a quiet room for studying and reading, a discovery garden, demonstration kitchen and more. On the east end of town, the LIBERTY PARK branch also reopened with similar amenities, such as the “Sasquatch Shack” kids’ space, plus a curated local art collection. Meanwhile, the downtown branch, renamed the CENTRAL LIBRARY, is set to reopen July 11, debuting a reworked floor plan that also features a kids’ space called “River Rumpus.” Other new amenities include a music and media recording studio, cafe and retail space, and the new home of local radio station KYRS. A grand reopening celebration for the Central Library is set for Monday, July 11, from 9 am to 3 pm. For more info on all the branches, visit spokanelibrary.org.
GOTTA CATCH ’EM ALL
Thanks to the time folks spent in isolation these last few years, collectible trading card games, aka “TCGs,” saw a big resurgence. Whether you’re brand new or picking up where you left off as a kid with games like Pokémon and Magic: The Gathering, the Comic Book Shop’s NorthTown Mall location offers weekly opportunities to brush up on or learn a new card game. If you’re immediately hooked, the shop has all the booster packs, deck boxes, dice and other supplies. Then, check out game tournament schedules at its three locations so you can, as they say, “ pwn the noobs.”

Feeling pissed off, brokenhearted or just want to smash some stuff without feeling bad about it? Spokane’s newest “rage room,” Rage Xscape, opened last year and offers an outlet for all that and more, and in a climate-controlled, windowless setting. Located downtown, at 122 S. Division, ragers ages 12 and up can reserve a time to become “masters of destruction.” For package details and to book, head to ragexscape.com.
Here in the Inland Northwest, a lot of the things we like to do outside in summer are also accessible inside, and year-round, including a relaxing swim. You can still beat the heat, and (safely) skip the sunscreen! At the SILVER RAPIDS indoor water park at Silver Mountain Resort in Kellogg, Idaho, overnight guests (a limited number of day passes are also available) can enjoy the park’s lazy river, an indoor surf wave, kids water area and much more. While it’s not the same as going to the lake, when that’s off the table, it’s perhaps the next best thing. North Idaho is also home to Triple Play’s RAPTOR REEF water park, which boasts a wave pool and loads of prehistoricthemed indoor water features.

uckleberry culture is, without question, huge in the Pacific Northwest. Come summer, restaurants and gift shops from the San Juan Islands to Western Montana go all in on the craze, with tourist-aimed products like huckleberry-flavored kettle corn, barbecue sauce, seasonal cocktails and more. While I’ve lived in the region for 30plus years, it wasn’t until a few years ago I could confidently identify a huckleberry bush in its wild, subalpine habitat, and I hadn’t once partaken in the Northwest rite of summertime picking. Then fate stepped in, and quickly turned me into a diehard huckleberry hound who now won’t miss an annual picking pilgrimage ever again. My love of the tart ruby- to purplehued berry began during a family hike at Mount Spokane. It’s rare we’re all together these days, as my sister lives in Austin, Texas, but during one of her summer visits, we went on a day hike to the Vista House. As it happens, earlier that same summer a friend pointed out to me yet-to-fruit huckleberry bushes along a trail near Priest Lake. Weeks later, when I spotted them everywhere on Mount Spokane, I was astounded to discover the bushes were also totally loaded with ripe
fruit. Our hike that day was waylaid by numerous picking pit stops. Huckleberry acolytes may laugh, but until that day, I’d always believed the berry was so rare you had to be in on a big secret to know where to pick them. While I understand the need to protect one’s favorite patch (I’m not going to tell you our exact go-to picking spot, either), I now realize there are plenty of huckleberries to go around. The real payoff comes with lots of patience and persistence. Four hours of picking at Mount Spokane, where the berries are small compared to, say, North Idaho’s penny-sized prizes, usually nets our group of four pickers between 2 and 3 pounds total; some eaten right away, the rest frozen for later. If you’ve never been huckleberry picking — or it’s been awhile — there are few activities in my view that reap such a delightful reward. One that’s made even better by fresh mountain air, sunshine and good company, or a simple and quiet escape into nature. — CHEY SCOTT

Head to the park, local library, Green Bluff and the county fair this summer, with the whole family in tow BY SUMMER SANDSTROM 66 INLANDER SUMMER GUIDE 2022
ummer is a time of seemingly infinite freedom: School is out of session, the weather is vibrant and warm, and the mundane structure of day-to-day life is relaxed thanks to all the events and fun the season brings with it. Even with all of this free time and new opportunities, it’s sometimes challenging to find things to do that meet the needs of a family with kids. Luckily, there are plenty of fun and exciting things to do in the Inland Northwest to keep the entire family busy all summer long.
I know I’m not the only kid who’d watch a movie set in the Middle Ages or a fairytale world and enviously watch the main characters galavant around in a horse-drawn carriage. Since carriages aren’t common anymore, the awe and wonder surrounding such a concept is more pronounced, even in the minds of teens and adults. This summer, however, you may finally be able to experience the seemingly fantastical mode of transport. Free carriage rides, sponsored by Wheatland Bank, happen every Friday evening, from 5-9 pm, throughout the summer. The eight- to 10-minute journey begins in Riverfront Park near the SkyRide, and each carriage seats up to eight, making it the perfect thing to do while waiting for an event downtown, or just looking for something fun on a Friday evening.

YOUNG KWAK PHOTO
Green Bluff is an Inland Northwest staple, and summer is one of the prime times to visit its farms and get your hands on some locally grown fresh fruit, like apricots, cherries, peaches, blueberries, blackberries and more. For strawberry lovers, Siemers Farm’s strawberry festival, happening June 17-July 9, is an ideal time to get outside and pick some fresh, juicy berries, taking a free tractor ride to get there, of course. Starting in July, head to Fleur de Provence Lavender Farm on the weekends, Friday-Sunday from 10 am-4 pm, to pick a bundle of lavender and enjoy views of the fields of purple flowers and buzzing bees. To find out what else is happening at Green Bluff this summer, visit greenbluffgrowers.com.

ESCAPE INTO READING
Our local libraries always have lots of events and summer reading contests that make learning in a non-school environment fun for kids of all ages. The SPOKANE COUNTY LIBRARY DISTRICT is hosting a summer reading contest, for which readers earn badges for every hour read, and for completing challenges like writing a book review or attending a library event. Each badge earns an entry into a prize drawing, with winners announced Sept. 1. With all the events at its branches across Spokane County, such as family storytimes, camping challenges, solar system labs and tie-dye parties, earning badges is an easy task. More info at scld.org. For North Idaho readers, the COEUR D’ALENE PUBLIC LIBRARY has lots for all ages. Storytime events in the park and at the library are perfect for toddlers and younger kids, and a range of science and craft classes cater to the whole family. Other events include board game nights for teens, and a variety of musical events. More info at cdalibrary.org.
Camping is a classic summertime activity, especially in the Pacific Northwest with the tall pine trees, starry night sky, and numerous lakes, rivers and hiking trails. But with wildfires and unhealthy air quality from smoke becoming an annual occurrence, it can be tricky timing a camping trip. Sometimes smoke blows in unexpectedly, and driving hours back into town after finally setting up the tent is an experience to avoid. Luckily, the backyard is a great camping location during random bursts of good summer weather, and it’s an affordable alternative to expenses for gas and campsite fees. And in the event that smoke wafts in from nearby fires, an indoor refuge is just feet away. While stargazers in the house may not be able to see as many dazzling lights, a small telescope can reveal some of the hidden secrets in the night sky. Plus, the oven and barbecue are within arms reach, so burgers, corn-on-the-cob, and s’mores can be enjoyed with ease.

Spokane County Interstate Fair’s thrills don’t stop with the rides.

From Sept. 9-18, head out to enjoy the petting zoo, fair food, roller coasters, ferris wheel, and exhibits showcasing the skills of local bakers, cooks, flower and plant enthusiasts, farmers, and artists. This year’s fair also has concerts every night, including headlining performances from Cole Swindell (Sept. 12), Elle King (Sept. 14) and Nelly (Sept. 15).

PEDAL KART THE PARK
Riverfront Park is a great place to go on a sunny day, and with the recent addition of rentable pedal karts, exploring the park becomes exponentially more fun. These karts are perfect for kids age 5 and up, but even adults can take them out for a spin. Riverfront currently has four singleseat and two double-seat carts that can be rented at the Numerica Skate Ribbon and SkyRide building. Kids can ride these karts to one of the many playgrounds in the park, stop by the Looff Carrousel or Red Wagon, or take a trip over to Mobius for a break from the heat to learn some science facts. Don’t forget about the Rotary Riverfront Fountain, right next to the Skate Ribbon, and a great way to cool down and make a splash after returning the kart for the day. More info at riverfrontspokane.com. n
SUNSHINE AND CDS
rowing up, road trips were a common occurrence for my family. Whether we were venturing a couple of hours north to visit my grandparents, or driving down the coast to California, being in the car for long periods and listening to music became a staple of my summertime experience. Generally the soundtrack of these trips consisted of songs from Jack Johnson, Neil Young and Ray LaMontagne, along with ’90s rock classics from Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Sublime. As I got older and started to request to hear some of my favorite songs and musicians, Taylor Swift joined the ranks as one of the artists who’d always receive a Grammy-level, sing-along performance from me. While I might not always listen to these songs on road trips I take now, if I need a healthy dose of nostalgia and serotonin on a warm, summer day, I’ll start playing an old road trip CD my parents burned over a decade ago and cruise down the highway, just like old times. And sorry in advance to anyone who happens to pass me on the road this summer; I never said my Grammy-level singing actually won. — SUMMER SANDSTROM

How to have a blockbuster summer at home, on the lawn, in your car or even at the movie house BY DAN NAILEN
ven with all the outdoor activities available thanks to warmer weather and long, sunny days, and even with annual family reunions and road trips in the mix, summer remains prime time for movie lovers. There’s something about the freedom of the season that loosens our schedules and lets us find ways to spend a couple hours in darkness, exploring fantastic worlds, intimate storytelling and, sometimes, simple excuses to laugh our asses off. Here are a few ways to help make the movies part of your best summer.

GET TO THE GARLAND
I’d recommend a trip to the Garland Theater any time of year, really, because I love the place. Discounted movie prices ($5, and just $2.50 on Wednesdays), a nice little bar in the lobby (Bon Bon), top-notch grub to enjoy while you watch (get yourself a Porky’s Revenge sandwich and thank me later) all make it a sweet spot for catching a flick. In the summer, in addition to their regular programming, the Garland adds in free shows for kiddos every Monday through Friday at 9:30 am during summer break. And the Garland’s Summer Camp series of classics — of both the cult and traditional varieties — has some great ones on tap this summer, including The Goonies (June 19), They Live (June 26), Stand By Me (July 10) and The Outsiders (Aug. 7). Keep up at garlandtheater.com.
Many of us know the feeling of trying to create a romantic movie date night at home, only to realize that no matter how tasty the takeout, how pretty the flowers, how expensive the wine or how good the movie, you’re still basically just camping out on your couch like most nights. And that’s OK! But if you really want to make a special evening, maybe leave it to the pros, like the folks at Spokane’s Moonlit Movies Co., who will set up an intimate bubble tent in the outdoor locale of your choosing, and fill it with a table, rugs, cozy pillows, cushions and blankets, as well as a screen and projector, for you to watch Casablanca, When Harry Met Sally, Blue Is the Warmest Colour — whatever your romantic jam is. Check out the available packages at moonlitmoviesco.com.
DIY FILM FESTIVAL
Your summer might be go-go-go, a relentless barrage of visiting relatives, car trips to shuttle the kids to camps or swimming pools, and, oh yeah, your job still exists! Why not take a little time to create your dream film festival lineup, then make it happen in your TV room or on a screen in your backyard? You could dedicate a day to watching as many Quentin Tarentino or Wes Anderson flicks as possible, or make your way through every version of Little Women you can find. If a full day watching movies isn’t feasible, try dedicating one night a week to your dream lineup. Every Sunday night, get the popcorn ready, order a pizza, and sit down to lose yourself for a bit. I’m considering building a summer festival of blockbusters from my ’80s summers growing up. You can do a lot worse than spending an evening revisiting Raiders of the Lost Ark, Tim Burton’s Batman, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Gremlins or E.T.

So simple, yet so magical: A night at Colville’s Auto-Vue drive-in.
A couple spots in the area add movie screenings to their diverse array of activities each year, and this summer is no different. The HUB Sports Center is a place that on normal days is full of pickleballers, volleyballers, martial artists and more. On July 30, though, they’ll screen one of the all-time summer classics, Jaws, on their outdoor screen at 8:30 pm, and you can bring a car full of fans for $25. The Pavilion in Riverfront Park hosts free movies in July and early August at 8:30 pm, and the lineup includes Cruella (July 6), Encanto (July 20), Ghostbusters Afterlife (July 27) and The Princess Bride (Aug. 3). So pack a blanket or a chair and settle in for a beautiful night outside. More information at hubsportscenter.org and riverfrontspokane.org.
While the pandemic led to the creation of pop-up outdoor movie screens both in parks and backyards, there’s no beating the experience of going to a real old-timey drive-in. And the Inland Northwest actually has one in Colville’s Auto-Vue Drive-In Theatre, which has been screening flicks in the summer since the 1950s. It’s 70 miles or so north of Spokane, so you can enjoy a mini road trip, some smalltown ambience, and then a double-feature at dusk. The Auto-Vue’s season typically runs until just after Labor Day, and you can scope out the schedule on the theater’s Facebook page. It’s only $7 for an adult ticket, $3 for kids 11 and under, and on Sunday nights you can cram a car full of friends and family in for just $15 total. The box office opens Fri-Sun at 8 pm. For details, Facebook: Auto-Vue Drive-In Theatre.

CAUGHT IN A (TOURIST) TRAP
rowing up, summer’s arrival naturally meant it was time for a family vacation. With three kids of varying ages in our household, it was the one time of year our parents could wrangle us all into the family station wagon and take a trip. The drives were often hellishly hot, with a soundtrack built around my mom’s Neil Diamond collection, but we got to see the country on those annual trips, from the Grand Canyon in Arizona to the Corn Palace of Mitchell and from South Dakota to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Totally recommend all three, thumbs up! Those early days packed in a car could have put me off tourist traps for life, but like so many unpleasant childhood experiences, I ended up embracing them when I grew up and started planning my own summer excursions. Some seek out summer seclusion by a mountain lake or remote beach — give me the boardwalk at Venice Beach or Coney Island, the long lines for roller coasters at Cedar Point in Ohio, the crush of humanity on induction weekend at Cooperstown, New York’s Baseball Hall of Fame. If I don’t experience something a little too crowded, too hot and after navigating too much traffic, it just doesn’t feel like I’ve done anything with my summer. What that will be this year remains to be seen. Perhaps a music fest in California, an amusement park in North Idaho, or Prairie Dog Town in western Kansas. What? It closed down? Maybe I’ll just keep rolling to the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Missouri. Wherever I go, you can bet the soundtrack will be better than Neil Diamond. — DAN NAILEN

ure, there are plenty of music happenings in the Pacific Northwest all year long, but summer sounds just hit differently. It’s a time when we want to be taking in our concerts under the stars, blaring new tunes on the car stereo with the windows rolled down, or enjoying some time away from the parents with our sonic compadres at a musical camp. It’s time to get loud.
Nobody is stoked about how sparse the Spokane Pavilion concert offerings are in its second year as an active venue. Only three shows announced so far? C’mon, AEG Presents. All we can do is take what we get, I guess. At least one of those shows is PHOEBE BRIDGERS (Aug. 18). The singersongwriter queen of bummed-out millennial poetry went from under-theradar favorite to festival headlining star with the release of 2020’s Punisher, and her live shows now serve as a beautiful collective angst valve for our pent up anxieties. ZACH BRYAN kicks off the Pavilion season on July 13, after recently making history when his latest album, American Heartbreak, debuted at No. 1 on the Country and Rock and Folk/Americana charts in early June. Rounding out the current slate is a co-headlining date from reggae rockers IRATION and rapper ATMOSPHERE (Aug 13). Get tickets at spokanepavilion.com.

GORGING ON MUSIC
Having the best outdoor music venue on the planet a mere two-hour drive from Spokane is a blessing not to be overlooked. Attending a show at the Gorge Amphitheater should be a bucket list item for any Inland Northwesterner even if you don’t care for the musical acts on stage. Thankfully, there’s plenty of variety when it comes to the Gorge’s offerings. To be frank, the Gorge has largely morphed into an electronic dance music oasis over the past decade. This summer features not one, not two, but three EDM fests: BEYOND WONDERLAND (June 18-19), ABOVE AND BEYOND GROUP THERAPY WEEKENDER (July 22-24), and BASS CANYON (Aug. 18-21). The only thing more of a Gorge staple than ravers is DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, which returns for its annual Labor Day residency (Sept. 2-4). The country music party that is WATERSHED FESTIVAL rounds out the venue’s multiday gatherings (July 29-31). If you’re looking for a one-night outing, the Gorge is hosting the stompfolk of the LUMINEERS (July 16), the pop country of the CHICKS (Aug. 13), and Mexican music legends LOS BUKIS (Aug. 26).

LEARNING FOR A MUSICAL LIFE
Few things can enrich children’s lives like music, and setting them on the path to play and create music on their own is one of the best uses of summer downtime. With that in mind, here are some summer music camp options in the area. In Spokane, HOLY NAMES MUSIC CENTER offers an array of camps: jazz camp (Aug. 4-6), an introduction to choral singing camp (Aug. 22-25), the more casual Music Explorer’s Summer Camp (July 25-29), and more. For kids looking to start a new instrument, ABLE TO PLAY’S immersive beginners camps for piano (July 8-12, July 22-26, Aug. 12-16) and drums (July 15-19, Aug. 5-9) might do the trick. For more advanced teens, WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY’S Cougar Summer Music Camp and Summer Keyboard Explorations camp (both July 19-25) offer students a chance to hone their musical craft among their peers with top-level instruction. For more dramatically inclined crooning kids, the HESPERUSARTS Musical Theatre Day Camp (July 5-8 and Aug. 22-25) and ST. GEORGE’S SCHOOL’S Musical Stars on Stage program (July 18-22) offer young ones and teens an expressive outlet for their summertime melodrama.
While the Festival at Sandpoint might be somewhat of a misnomer (“A Little Over a Week-long Concert Series at Sandpoint” doesn’t have quite the same ring), there’s little to argue with when it comes to the actual experience of the yearly outdoor music gathering on
the banks of Lake Pend Oreille. Over the course of 10 days, War Memorial Field hosts nine concerts which cater to many different musical interests. The biggest name on the bill is certainly the BEACH BOYS (even if it is the neutered Mike Love version) who visit Idaho on Aug. 4. There are plenty of other headliner varieties of white-dude-with-aguitar music, whether it be folk (GREGORY ALAN ISAKOV, Aug. 5), indie (Mt. Joy, July 30), country (CHRIS JANSON, July 29), or rock (THE REVIVALISTS, July 28; Kaleo, Aug. 3). LINDSEY STERLING brings her blend of violin virtuosity and electronic music to the fest (Aug. 6), while PINK MARTINI (July 31) also brings some notes of orchestral flair to their traditional pop arrangements. The festival wraps up with a visit from SPOKANE SYMPHONY on Aug. 7. Get tickets at festivalatsandpoint.com.
SONGS OF THE SUMMER?
Finding a perfect new album to be the soundtrack to your summer is always a winning proposition, and there are plenty of notable releases in the coming months that could be just the tuneage you’re seeking. On the pop spectrum, Lizzo looks to follow up her smash breakout album, Cuz I Love You, with Special (July 15). The emotive songwriter end of the pop dial is also well-represented via Maggie Rogers’ Surrender (July 29) and Conan Gray’s Superache (June 24). There’s also more than enough upcoming indie rock goodness to make it Indie Girl Summer, be it queer indie pop earworms on Muna’s self-titled LP (June 24), the sunny buzzy rock of Beach Bunny’s Emotional Creature (July 22) or the more melancholy songwriting
on Soccer Mommy’s Sometimes Forever (June 24). For the dads who enjoy rocking out while flipping burgers on the grill, the summer isn’t lacking big guitar attacks either; whether it’s the radio-ready rock of Imagine Dragons’ Mercury - Act 1 (July 21), the bluesy riffs on Jack White’s Entering Heaven Alive (July 22) or the arena rock grandeur of Muse’s Will of the People (Aug. 26). Those looking to vibe out to some EDM will be happy that Western Washington’s own ODESZA finally returns with a new album The Last Goodbye (July 22). And while hip-hop artists tend to be less album-focused these days, the next couple weeks see new releases from Lupe Fiasco (Drill Music in Zion, June 24), Kevin Gates (Khaza, June 17), Joey Bada$$ (2000, June 17) and The Game (Drillmatic, June 17).
GOING ALL IN
A casino might not be your first choice when it comes to concert going, but you can’t deny the talent that Northern Quest Casino is bringing to its outdoor stage once the weather heats up. Northern Quest kicks off the season this week with a barrage of classic rock from JOHN FOGERTY (June 17), ’90s rock from BARENAKED LADIES, GIN BLOSSOMS, and TOAD THE WET SPROCKET (June 18), and comedy rock via TENACIOUS D (June 20). But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. The summer slate — which is over a dozen shows deep — ranges from country superstars BRAD PAISLEY (June 26) and DWIGHT YOAKAM (Aug. 5) to hip-hop acts like FLO RIDA and T.I. (June 23) to rockers ranging from GOO GOO DOLLS (July 22) to PAPA ROACH (Aug. 20). n

CLING TO ME LIKE A PLASTIC WRISTBAND
hile I may lack captivating tales of storybook summer romances, that doesn’t mean I haven’t experienced crushing summer heartbreak. Loving is easy, losing that love is hard. I, of course, am talking about dead summer music festivals. While it’s easy to be jaded about many aspects of modern summer music fests — be it their crowded natures, corporate sponsorships, bros behaving badly, etc. — they largely remain blissful experiences for me. I still adore wandering between stages hoping to find a new favorite band, camping out at the front of a stage to hear a beloved fave, and all the messiness in between. But a lot of my best fest times are now relics relegated to the past tense, as the festi-
vals themselves have become defunct. My first summer love was the Vans Warped Tour. As a teen whose primary musical wheelhouse was pop punk and its offshoots, the traveling one-day punk fest was a musical mecca. In Billings, Montana, where I grew up, bands like Alkaline Trio, New Found Glory, Against Me!, The Used, Bowling for Soup, Saves the Day, The Living End, and Motion City Soundtrack almost never swung through town. So my favorite day of the year wasn’t my birthday or Christmas or any of that nonsense, it was Warped Tour day. Starting in 2002, even when the fest wouldn’t stop in the Big Sky State, I’d drive 10 hours to Boise or Denver to catch it. As is the natural way, I lost touch with newer pop punk
music post-high school, and going to Warped Tour stopped being an essential day on the calendar. But when it ceased touring in 2018, I can’t say the childish part of my psyche wasn’t feeling a bit emo. In the years since, I’ve lost other loves in the form of the fabulous Sasquatch! Festival at the Gorge (which had filled the Warped-sized hole in my heart) and even Seattle’s Bumbershoot (at least temporarily MIA). I get bummed out every spring realizing they’re not on the horizon. They all hurt my sonic soul, but that first heartbreak will always cut the deepest. — SETH SOMMERFELD

Have you ever wondered how healthy your liver was?
Spinning your way to an excellent summer
Why not check?
BY DANIEL WALTERS
hen it comes to finding entertaining things to do this summer, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. The good news is they already invented that, either in 3,500 B.C. in Mesopotamia or by the 4th century B.C. in Greece, depending on whether you include pottery wheels in that definition. We’re feeling generous, so we’ll award it to the Mesopotamians. Celebrate wheels this summer — from the ones on the bus that go ’round and round, to the one in the sky that keeps on turning — by taking part in all of sorts of wheeled activities, from bikes to cars to electric scooters.
DRIVE YOUR NON-CLASSIC CAR TO CAR D’ALENE
While I’m not a big car fan, I am a big fan of city-name-based wordplay. And “Car d’Alene” deserves to be elevated to the pantheon with “SpoCannibas” and “Spokandy” of local wordplay examples. Come to downtown Coeur d’Alene on Friday, June 17, 6-9 pm, to watch a bunch of cool cars cruise in a loop along Lakeside from Eighth Street, then Fourth to Wallace to Second Street, and finally east along Sherman. The show itself is Saturday, June 18, from 8-4 pm at the Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association parking lot at 105 N. First St. If you’re lucky, you’ll even be able to listen to one of those car horns that go “ahooga ahooga!” You know the ones I mean. Visit cdadowntown.com for more info.

DEFY THE OBSOLETE COVID SIGNS ON YOUR LIME SCOOTER
Two years later, our community is still filled with the detritus of the early days of COVID, when the virus was still a scary mystery. So you’ll still see signs warning that riders of Lime scooters should stay 6 feet apart, “wipe shared surfaces,” “use a mask and gloves,” “wash hands before and after riding,” and “use only for essential travel.” Now, of course, we know that COVID doesn’t spread on surfaces and that riding a scooter or bike outdoors in the open air is one of the safest ways to get anywhere (when it comes to COVID, at least). But if you want the rebellious anti-government thrill of being a COVID-science denier, without actually denying any of the (current) COVID science, this is your best opportunity to do so. You probably should still wash your hands after using the bathroom, but we’re not going to be a narc or anything. We can keep your dirty little secret.

PEDAL WITHOUT BEING SQUISHED AT SUMMER PARKWAYS
Anyone who bikes to work like me has noticed that, in the last few years, the roads have been dominated by giant pickup trucks, the kind that look like giant earthmovers built to destroy Ferngully’s rainforest. Keep your eye glued to the obituary page in the coming months to see if the remnants of my body have made a cameo on one of the truck’s grilles. In the meantime, you and I can feel safe hanging out at Summer Parkways on June 21, from 6-9 pm, where a whole 4-mile route is closed off to cars, allowing cyclists, rollerbladers, roller skaters and unicyclists free rein to rule the streets of the Manito and Comstock neighborhoods on the South Hill before the predators return. Visit summerparkways.com for more.
SPIN THE WHEEL OF ACTIVITIES
The downtown spinner wheel was a bit depressing during COVID, what with so many proposed activities shut down. But such COVID lockdowns seem far in our past — at least at the time of publication. Solve your indecision by grabbing hold of the spinner on the wall at Wall Street near Riverfront Park and giving it a whirl. Maybe you’ll land on “Ride the Skyride in Riverfront Park” or “Feed the Garbage Goat at Riverfront Park” or “Explore Mobius Discovery Center.” Fortunately, no matter how lucky you get spinning this wheel, there’s no “bankrupt” wedge. Nobody wants a repeat of the 2008 Wall Street debacle.
PETTING ZOO ON WHEELS
Everybody loves roller skates. Everybody loves cute animals. On Sunday, July 24, from 1-5 pm, Spokane Valley’s Roller Valley roller rink — owned by Ukrainian refugee Zhanna Oberemok — is combining both phenomena, holding a petting zoo at the roller rink to help local animal nonprofits. Tickets are $8 — bring donations like dog food, cat food, bird cages and reptile beddings and you’ll get a free cup of petting zoo food. Here we’re imagining a llama wearing roller skates, which, if that isn’t already in the plan, they should definitely make happen.
ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR WHEEL
So you have an electric unicycle, but nowhere to ride it? Meet up with the “E-Skate Group,” a roguish gang of eclectic longboarders, one-wheelers and electric scooter riders who go out for a group ride from the Riverfront Park fountain on Fridays at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 12:30 pm. “Our rides are usually less than 15 mph, and we do frequent stops to collect stragglers. We usually ride about 7-8 miles, then go out for something to eat, and a charge up. We frequently meet at Gerardo’s Authentic Mexican or David’s Pizza,” group member Christopher McNeal says. “Helmets are encouraged!” Like I said: rogues. n

BALCONY SEATS TO AN EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE
aybe the happiest I ever am during summer is not an isolated event. It’s more a genre of moment: The location can vary. Maybe it’s a bed and breakfast, maybe on the balcony at our family’s Lake Coeur d’Alene cabin. Maybe it’s while camping. I’m always on some form of vacation. It’s always morning. The air always has a slight crispness to it. Sometimes there’s fog rolling over the lake or hummingbirds chirping at the feeders. I always have a cup of coffee in my hand — it doesn’t have to be good coffee; any brew will do. And the final ingredient is a laptop or a book. It doesn’t even have to be a bad book. In fact, this sort of environment is the one place I can actually immerse myself in literature. I love reading, of course. But as an adult, reading is like seeing the Milky Way. I can’t do it if I’m too connected to civilization. There are too many other options: Video games, movies, TV, Twitter feeds all beckon constantly, pulling me away from the pleasure of books. Boredom — the kind of boredom that drives discovery, that drives creation, has been chased away by the infinite stream of entertainment at our fingertips.
So that’s the last ingredient: no internet. Either the setting doesn’t have it, or the setting is so serene I choose not to use it. I woke up early at a Mount Rainier campground last year, lugged my Inlanderbranded camping chair to the nearby riverbank, plopped open my laptop and wrote for two hours. For once, it wasn’t a piece related to work. It was a personal essay, the kind of piece that can take months, even years, to finish because I can only make progress in perfect settings like these. It’s the same way with my even more absurd personal project, 2020: The Musical, my Hamilton-but-with-Pence-and-Fauci fan-fiction of a musical-theater epic. To be clear, there is no music or talent involved, in any sense of either word. No, it won’t be performed, even in a semi-amateur fashion — because, like the coffee, it’s not really any good. Being good isn’t the point. It’s the ritual. The joy of absorbing creation and the joy of creating creation. — DANIEL WALTERS

We’d rather be blasting off to a theater screening Toy Story.
Too Indistinctly and Be-Yawned Pixar explores generic sci-fi blockbuster territory in Lightyear BY JOSH BELL
ixar’s Lightyear opens with a title card attempting to concisely explain its convoluted premise, which both constrains and minimizes the movie that follows. Theoretically, Lightyear is meant to represent the never-seen movie-within-the-movie from the original Toy Story, which inspires young Andy to ask his parents for a toy of the character Buzz Lightyear. So while the Toy Story movies are fun comedies about toys that come to life, Lightyear is a mostly serious sci-fi adventure about space exploration, a movie that a young boy might watch on repeat on VHS in 1995. Except that Lightyear doesn’t at all resemble a sci-fi blockbuster from 1995. Instead, it’s a very 2022 kind of movie, a carefully calculated brand extension whose main reason for existing is the exploitation of familiar intellectual property. It’s especially disappointing coming after a string of Pixar movies (Soul, Luca, Turning Red) that represented original, heartfelt stories from their creators. Lightyear isn’t Pixar’s worst effort — that honor still probably goes to one of the Cars movies — but it’s the one with the least personality. All of that personality is concentrated not in the title character, but in his quirky robot cat sidekick Sox (voiced by longtime Pixar animator Peter Sohn).

The remote majesty of the American West still exists, and it’s on full display in Bitterbrush, a low-key yet sweeping documentary which embeds itself with two female cattle herders in Idaho. Not rated At the Magic Lantern

Buzz himself is voiced here by Chris Evans, rather a fictional version of something like Star Wars or than Toy Story’s Tim Allen. Allen’s Buzz is a bit of Star Trek, it fails to capture the scope and grandeur a lovable buffoon, but Evans plays him as more of of those enduring franchises, despite Pixar’s typically a stolid, square-jawed hero, which is reflected in the gorgeous animation. Instead, it comes off as the kind more boxy character design.

THE CASE FOR
GREATNESS A quarter-century of work has proven that Neko Case belongs among music’s great songwriters BY DAN NAILEN
he voice hits first. Neko Case possesses one of those voices that refuses to be buried by, say, a shitty sound mix, by the noise drifting over from a distant festival stage, by the joyful racket created, purposefully, next to her on stage by her bandmates. Her fiery red mane might draw your attention, but it’s the clarion call emanating from Case’s throat that draws a listener in and holds them. Especially in the rock and country realms, there aren’t a huge number of voices that can stop you dead in your tracks. Emmylou Harris, Patsy Cline, maybe Annie Lennox. Case has one of those kinds of voices. Timeless. She’d likely quickly dismiss such comparisons. When she released her 2018 album HellOn, she talked about her songwriting in confident terms (“They are my best self,” she said of the tunes). In the very next breath — and this was in her own press release to promote the album — she dissected and derided her vocal chops. “I don’t have a pretty voice or a trained voice,” Case said, “and I am constantly disappointed that I don’t have a ‘tough’ voice, no matter how hard I practice, but it’s mine, and for all its loud, heavy-handed, nasal, vibrato-less qualities, I accept it.” Yes, the lady doth protest too much. But certainly her artistry goes far beyond simply her vocal instrument. That’s evident on Wild Creatures, the new digital-only 23-song compilation spanning Case’s 25 years as a recording artist, and will be evident as well when she headlines the Bing Crosby Theater Saturday, June 18. Masks will be required for attendees by Case’s request, a result of her catching COVID on tour last fall.
he first time I saw Case perform in concert, she was singing as part of the New Pornographers as the then-unknown power-pop crew played an industry showcase at the South by Southwest music conference. The band made a great first impression that March night in Texas in 2001, and Case’s
distinct vocals certainly stood out, whether harmonizing alongside fellow Pornographers Dan Bejar and Carl Newman or taking lead vocals on songs from the band’s debut album, Mass Romantic. When the group came through my town a few months later and played a sports bar for some inexplicable reason, I planted myself right in front of Case’s spot on stage. That night I became a fan for life — and that was before I’d experienced Case’s own songwriting and work as a solo artist. To that point she’d only released two albums, The Virginian and Furnace Room Lullaby, and both were attributed to Neko Case and Her Boyfriends. Those “boyfriends” were a rotating cast of musician friends, but both those albums are clearly Case projects, mixing her original songwriting with a few well-chosen covers (Queen’s “Misfire” on The Virginian is an unexpected delight) and creating a distinct sonic mood, one some started calling “country noir.” No one loves being labeled, but that one fit pretty well early in Case’s career. With 2002’s Blacklisted, Case ditched the boyfriends and started putting out records in her own name. At the same time, her sonic palette expanded slowly and steadily over the four albums she’s released since, to the point where some songs on 2018’s Hell-On incorporate horns, loops, harpsichords and drum machines. The Wild Creatures compilation puts a new spotlight on Case’s lyrics, as well as her constant sonic exploration. Through the years, some songs have evolved into expansive short stories about nature and mythical beasts, while she can still deliver an intimate song of heartbreak and woe. Occasionally, hope even creeps in! She has a poet’s way with words, and Bob Dylan’s caginess in never wanting to be too straightforward. Much is left to the listener’s interpretation in Case’s songs, and isn’t that what we want from our great artists? n

ure, the late afternoon sets start to bring the energy up when you’re at the Gorge for the electronic dance music festival Beyond Wonderland, but everyone knows that sunset is the special time that ushers in the largest acts that are sure to have you dancing late into the night and spending time with some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Go down the PLUR (peace, love, understanding, respect) rabbithole and you’re likely to meet plenty of new friends, from a random rave mom who happens to have that piece of gum you need, to some tall dude with balloons and baby wipes who’s about to amplify that bass-heavy experience for you even more. With sets from incredible EDM names such as Apashe, BTSM, Dr. Fresch, Elderbrook, Troyboi, Zeds Dead and more, you’re sure to have a great time. And don’t worry, whether you’re a mellow, house lover or a dubby bass-lovin’ headbanger, there’s something for everyone. — SAMANTHA WOHLFEIL Beyond Wonderland • Sat & Sun, June 18 & 19 at 3 pm • $139-$330 • Gorge Amphitheatre • 754 Silica Road - Quincy, Wash. • pnw.beyondwonderland.com
alling to mind albums like Mitski’s Bury Me at Makeout Creek and Steady Holiday’s Take the Corners Gently, MAITA’s excellent new album I Just Want to Be Wild For You teeters on the line between lyrical apprehension and urgency while wrestling with a longing for intense connection amid a world that fosters isolation. Portland-based singer/songwriter Maria Maita-Keppeler displays razor-sharp word choice as she shifts from sly indie rockers about the overwhelming feelings of reading bad news on your phone, wanting to be touched, and being artistic fodder for another (“You Sure Can Kill A Sunday, Part I”) or the cyclical grind of tour (“Road Song”) to coy tongue-incheek folky “love” songs about smartphone attachment (“Light Of My Life (Cell Phone Song)”) without missing a beat. MAITA’s stop at Lucky You offers the perfect chance to radiate in the refracted light shining from this Northwest gem. — SETH SOMMERFELD

CLASSIC ROCK JOHN FOGERTY
f it’s possible for an artist to be incredibly commercially successful, critically adored, still touring to packed venues and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame yet still be underrated, John Fogerty is that guy. The songs he made with Creedence Clearwater Revival remain omnipresent on classic-rock radio, and with good reason: Tunes like “Down On The Corner,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “Green River” still rule some 50 years after they arrived during CCR’s incredible run of seven albums released between 1968 and 1972. His second, solo act was just as impressive in its quality if not as prolific in its quantity. Since 1985, he’s released eight more albums and delivered hits like “Centerfield” and “The Old Man Is Down The Road.” More importantly, the guy still delivers live, his 77-year-old voice capably tackling both the hits of his youth and newer fare in fine style. — DAN NAILEN John Fogerty with Hearty Har • Fri, June 17 at 7:30 pm • $49-$99 • BECU Live at Northern Quest Resort & Casino • 100 N.

MUSEUMS A LIGHT ON MOONSHINERS
From 1920 to 1933, the Lake City was “dry,” devoid of alcohol like the rest of the country during the Prohibition years. And also like the rest of the country, there was plenty of alcohol to be found in Coeur d’Alene and surrounding regions by those who knew where to look. The Museum of North Idaho’s new exhibition brings to life the boozy narrative of these thirsty residents — enterprising bootleggers and even local law enforcement with their own stills — via whiskey bottles and other artifacts, as well as newspaper articles from the period. Look for related events throughout the exhibition, including when the museum hosts its ’20s-themed Gatsby Gala fundraiser on July 7 that promises to be the “bee’s knees.” — CARRIE SCOZZARO The Rum Rebellion: Prohibition in North Idaho • Opens Fri, June 17 from 11 am-5 pm; continues daily through Oct. 29 • $2-$6 • Museum of North Idaho • 115 Northwest Blvd., Coeur d’Alene • museumni.org • 208-664-3448
Juneteenth is a day that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans, and in 2021 it officially became a federal holiday. Oftentimes, Juneteenth is observed by celebrating African-American culture with public events that invite communities to become informed about the date’s significance. In the Inland Northwest there are a slew of events residents can attend to learn more about Juneteenth. Spark Central is hosting a Juneteenth Family Night on June 17 at 4:30 pm that encourages families to learn about the holiday. The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture is also observing Juneteenth by showing various films and video clips at its Juneteenth: A Celebration of Resistance event on June 19, from 10 am-5 pm. The festivities don’t end there! Join the folks at the MLK Center for an entire afternoon (details below) learning from and supporting local Black-owned businesses. — MADISON PEARSON Juneteenth Celebration & Vendor Fair • Sat, June 18 from 11 am-3 pm • Free • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center • 500 S.

INLANDER A DAY EARLY
June 22ND Indians vs.
Everett Aquasox AVAILABLE AFTER THE GAME AT BALLPARK EXITS
SPORTS PLAY BALL!
We don’t need much of an excuse to head to a Spokane Indians game. When it comes to spending lazy days in the sun (or evenings in the sunset), it’s hard to go wrong with beer in one hand, hot dog in the other, and some aspiring major leaguers making one of their first steps toward the big leagues on the field. This year’s team has been streaky, but remains in contention for first place as of this writing, so what better time for the Inlander’s annual Baseball Hat Giveaway Night. If that name isn’t clear enough, the first 1,000 folks through the gates get a free Indians’ lid courtesy of the Inlander and Pepsi, and one way to assure you’re one of those first 1,000 people is to get there early for the Inlander-sponsored happy hour. Every game, all season long, you get $1 off all beverages (except beer bats) in the hour before first pitch. — DAN NAILEN Spokane Indians vs. Everett AquaSox • Tue, June 21 at 6:35 pm • $8-$22 • Avista Stadium • 602 N.

JUNE 16, 2022 INLANDER 29
I SAW YOU THANKS FOR THE LADDER You, dark gray Dodge pickup, cutting people off, changing lanes with no blinker. Me, cut off by you, watched your brand-new ladder fall out of your truck and almost hit the car you had just cut off. You didn’t even slow down! So I picked up your brand new ladder to get it out of the road; it looks good in my garage. Karma at its finest. I just wish I could have seen your face when you noticed. Thanks for the ladder. RAINIER LAUNCH PARTY You, beautiful, tan, blonde. Me, light brown hair, wearing light blue three-quarter zip. On at least one occasion we locked eyes. When the heavy rain started, I retreated to my car. After it passed I re-entered, but didn’t see you. Would like to meet you for a Rainier or beverage of your choice.
I SAW YOU
YOU SAY HI FIRST It does suck that we choose not to say hello… I tried to communicate with you many times. You kept me at arm’s length and gave me reasons I still cannot understand to this day. It breaks my heart every time our paths cross and nothing is said, but so much is communicated in a simple glance. Maybe we can learn to say hello again… Meet at “our park” 6/22 @ 11:00 am?
BETTER WITHOUT HIM Please be grateful you are not with him anymore. He is trouble and a taker. He is shady and scary. Don’t doubt the doubts you had when you were with him all those years. You were not wrong to wonder what, who, where and when. Many more than were “confessed” is likely the case. It doesn’t matter to have the truthful answers to those questions. Your intuition is keen for a reason; it matters! Continue moving forward with the life you are creating for yourself post-disastrous days. You’ve got this!! You are bright, shining and capable as you’ve ever and always been. Don’t doubt anymore!! He wasn’t worthy of your trust then. Don’t wonder now what could have been. Be grateful it is not. GREAT SERVICE Thank you, Valjean, V.P. Manager, US Bank, Main branch, W. 428 Riverside, for being professional and personable in giving excellent customer service. MINNEHAHA NEIGHBORHOOD YARD SALE Thanks to all the homes participating in the Minnehaha Neighborhood / Community Yard Sale. June 24th-26th. 9 am-6 pm. Please come out to support the neighborhood and have fun going to all the yard sales. GOOD DEEDS Not once but twice within a month I have been thought of by two extremely honest people. The first time was when I left my purse on a bench & it was found & taken into the Rite Aid on 29th street & last Saturday when I laid my pink frozen food bag down on the cement by the Shadle Safeway. I haven’t an explanation for why all of “this” took place, good luck or divine intervention? What I do know is not only was I saved heartache twice, but the two thoughtful & honest souls must have felt proud for their kind actions. Thanks & best wishes go out to both of them. HELPED ME BACK OUT To the kind young lady who was wearing an MUV fitness jacket who helped me back out of my tight parking spot at Riverfront Square parking garage. Thank you!!!! I couldn’t have gotten out without hitting something without you! Appreciate you!
PARTY ON, NEIGHBOR WOMEN! Cheers to the neighborhood women down the street belting out Whitney, Aerosmith and Lizzo songs in their backyard on a Wednesday evening. Rock on.
GAS GUZZLERS To all of you owners of gas hog cars. QUIT COMPLAINING! If you didn’t see these gas prices coming years ago, you deserve to pay so much for gas. Dump your gas hog and get a high-mileage vehicle.
geese of about 10 or so were out of the water resting over near to the base of the tower but out in the sun. Good for them. Responsible pet owners were trying to give them a wide berth, so we stayed as far as possible toward the fountain
It breaks my heart every time our paths cross and nothing is said, but so much is communicated in a simple glance.
KIND CAMPERS A few years ago I took my grandkids to Round Lake to camp. One late evening my little dog got out of the trailer and took off. I thought I could catch her so left the trailer in my long (but not long enough) T-shirt, no shoes and my phone. I was unable to catch the dog, and my phone died, and it was really dark out. I was very disoriented, and even though I was still in the campground, I was hopelessly lost. Note this was 63-year-old grandma who was unsteady on her feet and worried about her dog. After stumbling around I came across a group of campers around their campfire. I must have been quite a sight. I was in tears and totally distraught. I asked if they had a map I could use, and they immediately led me to a chair to sit down. The women offered to drive me to the campsite, and the guys set off to look for my dog. When we got to the campsite there was that silly dog. I know I thanked them then, but I want them to know I will always remember their kindness.
JEERS RE: HANDICAPPED FRAUDS Invisible disabilities exist. You’re assuming the person you saw doesn’t need accessible parking based on her clothes and how many children she had with her. Perhaps she is recovering from open-heart surgery. Perhaps she, like you, gets extremely exhausted when she walks. Or perhaps someone else’s reasons for needing an accessible parking placard are none of your business.
1. Visit Inlander.com/isawyou by 3 pm Monday. 2. Pick a category (I Saw You, You Saw Me, Cheers or Jeers). 3. Provide basic info: your name and email (so we know you’re real). 4. To connect via I Saw You, provide a non-identifying email to be included with your submission — like “email@example.com,” not “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
SUNDAY DRIVERS I’ve lived in multiple states and cities over the last two decades. I’ve driven on Spokane roads and highways for the last three years. While no one place I’ve lived owns the title of “”worst drivers”” (Including California), there is a term that I heard years ago from my father and grandfather I believe applies to Spokane more so than anywhere else: Sun·day driv·er [səndē 'drīvər] NOUN Sunday drivers (plural noun) A person perceived as driving in an inexperienced or unskillful way, especially one who drives slowly. Example: Spokane is full of Sunday Drivers. Especially those who drive crossovers or have Idaho license plates. I HAUL, YOU HAUL, WE ALL HAUL FOR SOMETHING OR OTHER Guinness is considering awarding the Coeur d’ Alene 31 a World Record in a subcategory of “Number of Clowns Packed in a VW Bug.” NOT YOURS, NOT MINE So, most of us pay for it, but really who owns the Riverfront Park? It’s ended up being a major asset of the City of Spokane. It’s been a cool spring so any day that warms up and the sun comes out brings lot of people, marmots, birds, and people walking their dogs. Ideal. Walking my dog down to the area around the clock tower lawn area to chase the ball on a long lead we saw that the Canadian
end. They seemed content, so why bother fellow creatures. So along came a woman with four children I’m guessing between 5 and 8. They immediately started stalking on hands and knees the birds who are somewhat used to having people around. When they got fairly close a couple of them threw their wadded up coats at them. Of course they flew off to the water for relative safety. Really? Two women walking their large dogs commented to the woman that that was completely needless. The woman spins around and tells them to go f--k themselves! Mountain out of a mole hill to bring this up? Probably, but when you look closely at the park there is all kinds of damage being done by people who have the entitled attitude that they can put skid marks on the concrete, throw trash wherever they want, etc. Park ranger should be handing out fines for this as there are NO excuses. It takes ALL the donating spirt out of people when they see their investment being treated like this! n

Thailand Goes Green The southeast Asian nation of 70 million is (sort of) joining the legal cannabis club BY WILL MAUPIN
hailand recently became the first Asian country to legalize cannabis, though the country is going about the process in a unique way. From some perspectives, Thailand’s approach is more of a decriminalization effort than flat-out legalization. Medical marijuana will be completely legal, but recreational use is technically still against the law. That means that, unlike here in Washington, there will be no recreational market. However, the new law doesn’t provide much of an enforcement structure to keep people from using medical marijuana recreationally. Under the new law it is now legal to cultivate, possess and consume cannabis in Thailand, provided you register with the government — think of it as getting a green card for medical marijuana back in the day. Unlike the green card, though, there isn’t much of a regulatory framework, like being required to receive a prescription from a doctor. It appears for now that anyone can simply register with the government and that’s that. Though the government has stated that “nuisance” use of cannabis, such as lighting up a joint on the street, is still a crime.
Thailand might try to pump the brakes on nonmedical use of cannabis, but they’re going full steam ahead on the medical side. Last month, the government announced that as part of the rollout of the new law, they would distribute 1 million cannabis plants to citizens at no cost. They’re literally giving away free weed. Thailand’s new law is simultaneously leaning into establishing legal cannabis in the country while also not coming out and saying it is fully, explicitly legal. It’s created a massive gray area for recreational use that will be hard to enforce, at least for those who use only in their own homes. Thailand is joining a small but growing group of countries in the legal cannabis club. No, it won’t be codified into law as fully legal for recreational use like it is in many U.S. states as well as in Canada and Uruguay. Instead, Thailand is more aligned with Georgia, Malta, Mexico and South Africa, where recreational use is effectively legal, though there are caveats relating to for-profit sales and use outside the home. It’s also a major symbolic step for pro-legalization efforts worldwide. Asia was the last continent, Antarctica aside, without a single country where recreational cannabis had been legalized. That’s no longer the case, thanks to Thailand. n
Thailand adds Asia to the list of cannabis-friendly continents.

NOTE TO READERS
Inlander readers that have BOUGHT OR USED CANNABIS in the past year and live in Eastern WA.
Be aware of the differences in the law between Idaho and Washington. It is illegal to possess, sell or transport cannabis in the State of Idaho. Possessing up to an ounce is a misdemeanor and can get you a year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine; more than three ounces is a felony that can carry a fiveyear sentence and fine of up to $10,000. Transporting marijuana across state lines, like from Washington into Idaho, is a felony under federal law.
