Opening day for Riverfront Park's Fountain Cafe

A chilly wind showed up to knock around the balloons set out for the Fountain Cafe’s opening day in Riverfront Park. But the sun also made an appearance, as if reminding us that there’s plenty of summer ahead for lunches and after-work drinks in the park.

Construction began last fall for the cafe, which has all-outdoor patio seating right next to the Rotary Fountain. Earlier this year we wrote about the plans and extensive menu, which includes salads and healthy wraps along with traditional concession stand favorites like chili dogs and ice cream.

Take note of the beverage list, too — there’s wine and beer, including No-Li on tap.

VIDEO: Behind the scenes with No-Li Brewmaster Mark Irvin

Posted By on Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 4:21 PM

If you don’t already want a beer after work, this will change your mind. A couple of weeks ago — it was actually the day No-Li got federal approval for “Spokane Style” beerThe Inlander stopped by the brewhouse on Trent Avenue to talk with No-Li Brewmaster and Owner Mark Irvin.

That lucky beer-holding hand to the right of the frame during the interview belongs to Arts & Culture Editor Mike Bookey, who also wrote this companion feature about No-Li for this week’s beer issue. Videographer Nathan Brand filmed and edited these videos from their visit.

First, here’s a short feature on how the brewery got started and how it’s grown. “Nothing makes you happier than watching somebody you don’t know walk up to the bar and order a pint of your beer,” Irvin says.

And here, for the beer nerds, Irvin tastes and describes five of No-Li’s flagship beers. This is what you should memorize for the next time someone from out of town sees a No-Li tap handle and asks you about it. (Or you can just tell them to try it and see.)

To The Girl

Posted on Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 8:24 AM



whose name is close to Mad Lion, who always has a smile, I see you
sometimes at The Falls and we sit, chat for a while. You always say to
me, "I look to see who saw me but nobody ever does." But cheer up cheer up
because now you are seen, even if you weren't told in AP style. Happy
birthday!

Paying It Forward

Posted on Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 8:24 AM



To the person in front of me in the red car at the drive-thru at Shadle
Starbucks, thank you for paying for my coffee this morning (Thursday, April
18th). This week has been such a downer for everyone, the Boston Marathon
tragedy, the explosion in Texas, but there are people out there, like you,
who care by performing random acts of kindness. My week has been filled
with highs and lows, extremely busy schedules and you totally made my day
start off amazingly well. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
Spokane is so lucky to have thoughtful people like you!
