Buzz Bin 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & New Charity-Filled Crusts! & r & During Valentine's season, young lovers' thoughts turn to ... pepperoni? In the run-up to the big day (Feb. 10-14), buy your little snookums a heart-shaped pie at Boston Pizza, 14004 E. Indiana Ave., and the Bostonians will donate a buck to the Shriners Hospital. You eat, you kiss, some kid gets healed -- it's enough to melt the mozzarella and your heart. Call 927-4284 or 455-7844.





Go Goth & r & This Sunday, you can have a Gothic experience while dispensing with all that cumbersome black clothing and makeup. On Feb. 12 at St. John's Cathedral, there'll be an open house from 1-4 pm, followed by a Choral Evensong Candlelight Service at 4 pm with choir and organ and the entire meditative atmosphere. The Cathedral Choir will sing medieval texts associated with York Minster Cathedral, and then organist Janet Satre Ahrend will play a toccata based on a 17th-century chant. Donations requested. Call 838-4277.





Logorrhea & r & The GSL needs a new logo. The present one has an outline of Washington state superimposed on the giant letters G-S-L, with "Greater Spokane League" arching above and 11 stars arching below. The word "Activities" stretches across the state map from Centralia to Pullman. A star with the number 8 on it, located roughly where Spokane would be, adds to the insignia's numerological mysteries. (Eleven schools? Star 8? Southern part of the North Division?)


Anyway, they need a new one, and you're just the person to design it. E-mail your escutcheon -- we're thinking a marmot en couchant, gules, quartered on a field, azure, with lots of fleur-de-lis thingies thrown in -- to [email protected] by March 1, and you just might win $250 in athletic apparel. With special logos. Which you can point out and say, "Yeah, I designed that."





Romance and Roses & r & Allegro Baroque and Beyond offers a Viennese Ball experience for Valentine's Day. In the elegant atmosphere of the Kirtland Cutter-designed Spokane Club, 1002 W. Riverside Ave., not only will there will be champagne and Viennese desserts, but you can even get a quick lesson in how to do the Viennese waltz. Dress for this Viennese Ball is black tie/white tie and gown, so we're pretty sure that jeans, Hawaiian shirts and Beach Boys music will be met with dour Viennese frowns. Festivities commence on Saturday, Feb. 11, at 8 pm and continue until you turn into a pumpkin. Tickets: $100; $50 additional for a Spokane Club dinner. Visit www.allegrobaroque.com or call 455-6865.

    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.
