After a round of poker, relax among brass and dark wood columns in the casino’s adjacent lounge and family restaurant, where they serve up good burgers, sandwiches and build your own pizzas. While the poker room is brightly lit and bustling, the lounge is dimly lit and laid back, just the right ambiance to chill out and order a Long Island Iced Tea or a Mack and Jacks to soothe a poker loss or gear up for a win.

Go ahead and slurp. No one will judge you at this bustling little noodle shop located inside Northern Quest Resort and Casino. Fai’s menu goes beyond noodles, with specialty stir fries, Japanese mochi and tempura battered chicken, but we urge you to order a steaming bowl of Vietnamese pho or Fai’s popular won ton soup and slurp away.

Start or end your night at the Quest at this decidedly swanky lounge on the hotel side of Northern Quest. The modern fireplace, intimate seating groups and attentive yet unobtrusive service create a romantic ambiance. Order a nibble — a nice selection of small plates and desserts are available — and a cocktail and know that if you don’t want to go home, you don’t have to. Luxurious hotel suites await upstairs.

Go to a bowling alley, just to eat? If that alley is Hugo’s, then the answer is yes. This South Hill boutique bowling alley is decked out in classy leather furniture and glitzy lighting, creating a top-shelf ambiance more in tune with a Las Vegas boutique bowling lounge than the dingy lanes of old. Entrées here range from pot roast to halibut fish tacos to sliders. And just like in Vegas, a full bar is on hand so you’ll never go thirsty. (July 2013)
Beware slot machine addicts: your friends and family may have to stage an intervention to get you out of Koonteai River Inn Casino.

Non-gamblers and those who are burnt-out can visit the Inn's spa.
This is the only true cigar bar in the region and Northern Quest has taken advantage of that fact with this throwback lounge. Low lights, low chairs, a swank bar with deep reserves of whiskey, scotch, and cognac. And, oh, that smell. Cigarettes aren’t allowed, but the warm, earthy aroma of fine cigars is everywhere.

Masselow’s is the only Eastern Washington restaurant to have ever received AAA’s Four Diamond Award, an honor earned by stringent attention to detail. Every detail. The decor is beautiful, without being stuffy or pretentious. The food is carefully (and locally) sourced. The service is unparalled. And the complimentary fry bread is a lovely nod to the rich Native American history in our region. (July 2013)
