by Inlander Staff & lt;BR & Go West, Young Ribs -- After years of Starbucks and Tully's and Nordstrom and everything else emigrating from Seattle to here, it's nice to see one of our own making a name for itself over there. Namely, the Longhorn. Yes, that's right. While we were chowing down on their succulent ribby goodness, they were quietly opening up new outlets in Auburn, Kent, Renton and finally, a "UDV" (Urban Delivery Vehicle"), which operates oh-so-conveniently out of Pioneer Square. Now even Seattle's most chic downtown denizens can get down with their rib-gnawing selves. In other words, Seattle, we'll see that coffee and raise you a bucket o' ribs. To read more, check out Roger Downey's article in the June 30 issue of the Seattle Weekly.





Adventurers Still Wandering -- The second show of Interplayers' 2005-06 season, Lewis and Clark: Manifest Destiny -- previously announced as a collaboration with Gonzaga University's Department of Theater -- is now scheduled as a Gonzaga-only production. Interplayers will fill its October-November slot with a still-to-be-determined show.





VROOOOM! -- Just for kicks, we're thinking about entering our own rig into the upcoming River City Rod Run, taking place in Post Falls on July 8-10 at Greyhound Park. We're pretty sure our Team Inlander's sweet vintage 2001 Hyundai Accent can hold its own against '54 Chevys emblazoned with flames and custom motorcycles with more chrome than a faucet convention; in fact, we think her battered front license plate will put the fear of God into more than one quivering engine come Sunday ("Demolition Derby Day"). At the very least, we're hoping to win a prize for "Best Rear View Mirror Accessories" - a cluster of fake plastic grapes and a cowgirl air freshener, courtesy of Boo Radley's. OK, so maybe you won't even notice Team Inlander's bitchin' ride, what with all the cool paint jobs, high-revving engines and entertainment from Joan Jett, Poison and Willie and the Weiners, but wish us luck anyway, 'kay?

Captain Underpants -- We love our occasional updates from the UK, including this tidbit from The Guardian about a gentleman who -- hoping for a big lawsuit settlement -- wired his own underpants in order to fake heart attack symptoms. Marcus Danquah, 41, of Lincolnshire, was seeking & pound;300,000 in damages from the makers of the "Morphy Richards Comfi Grip Iron" and found a novel way to fake the symptoms of electric shock. Why Mr. Danquah chose to concentrate the effects of the Comfi Grip's purportedly shocking qualities around his "underpants area" remains to be explained.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
