Spotlight Spokane: Throwback Thursday

This week, we dove into the Spokane Public Library's 'Northwest Digital Archive' — a collection of photos documenting Spokane's history, from the first mills on the Spokane River, to the historic downtown buildings, and Expo '74! It can be easy to forget that Spokane is an old city, rich with history!

Spotlight Spokane: Meeting House

This week we stopped by the newly-opened 'Meeting House' cafe. It's the newest addition to the South Perry District, which has undergone a huge transformation in recent years. Meeting House's philosophy is to become a 'third place' – where folks go outside of home and work to relax!

We visited Fairchild Air Force Base and got an inside look at the refueling process for F-22 Raptors! We climbed aboard a Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker and flew way above the clouds.

Spotlight Spokane: Sacred Heart Superheroes

The 4 News Now team visited the Providence Sacred Heart Children's Hospital – or rather, their superhero alter-egos did! They spread smiles and happiness to the kids undergoing treatment, and to be truthful, the children are the real superheroes!

Spotlight Spokane: Winter in Spokane

This week we traipsed through a very snowy, very cold Spokane – visiting Riverfront Park, Manito and Comstock! It was downright frigid out, but that didn't stop people from enjoying the Skate Ribbon or going for a winter run.

Spotlight Spokane: Brick West Brewing Co.

This week we visited Brick West Brewing Company, Spokane's newest bar and the latest addition to the growing and evolving West End neighborhood. Their brewer studied in Germany, learning the traditional German-style brewing – that means pilsners, hefeweisens and dunkels! Brick West looks to be the hub of a new, revitalized downtown Spokane culture.

Spotlight Spokane: Bijou

This week, we squeaked into Bijou, a tiny craft libations bar that just moved in near Browne's Addition. Owners Tyson and Shelayna have been making bitters for years, and finally have a brick-and-mortar to show off their bartending skills!

Spotlight Spokane: Timber Creek Coffee Co.

This week, we visited Timber Creek Coffee Company, which just moved in to the South Hill. The place is cozy and eclectic, with coffee shop fare, but also with an organic oatmeal bar, and all kinds of knick knacks for sale, made by the owners themselves!

Spotlight Spokane: Autumn in Spokane

This week, we visited three iconic parks around Spokane, soaking in the autumn scenery just hours before a record-breaking snowstorm swept through! Enjoy a little snapshot of fall in Spokane.

Spotlight Spokane: Old Spangle School

This week, we visited the old West Liberty school down in Spangle. The place has been relatively closed off for decades. Now, it's a quaint, cozy short-term rental, replete with all the amenities you'd expect from an apartment!

Spotlight Spokane: Bottle Bay Brewing Co.

This week, we stopped by Bottle Bay Brewing Company, who are in the middle of building a tap house on the South Hill. They have been brewing for years, but have graduated to a new building near Manito Park! Stop by and enjoy some beers when they open in late September!

Spotlight Spokane: Manito Gardens

This week, we visited Manito Park for one last traipse as summer winds to a close. Coming up on Saturday, the Friends of Manito is hosting a plant sale, right next to the Gaiser Conservatory. Stop by, buy some plants, pet some animals, enjoy live music, and support this beautiful park!
