It’s finally Friday, and it’s March and it's the warmest weather of the year so far – if this isn't the perfect night to go out for Spokane Restaurant Week, you're just too hard to please.
First Friday Every month, galleries across the city open their doors to the public for a few hours to share the newest artwork hanging on the walls, with some offering the additional lures of live music and refreshments. Make dinner reservations and check out a few of the venues before you eat. 5-9pm • Free • See our map for locations
