The Way

For pilgrims of the Camino de Santiago trail, the journey never ends
He's not sure when he first heard about the Way, as it's known, or exactly why he decided to take that first journey at age 50. But after walking 1,500 miles of the Camino de Santiago trail — a feat that required three trips (2003, '07, '12) snaking through parts of Belgium, France and Spain — Fr.

GAME | POKE-MANIA

A new game of old characters transfixes the nation, and Spokane
In 45 minutes, we caught a Psyduck, Diglett, Growlithe, Drowzee, Spearow, Pidgey, Krabby and even more of their fellow Pokémon denizen. The Pokémon are plentiful in downtown Spokane's Riverfront Park — so much so that the park's Canada Island has been nicknamed "Pokémon Island" by locals camping out there for hours to catch the elusive creatures.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

A welcome return, monstrous comic and disastrous novel
MUSIC | Fans have been aching for a follow-up for years now, but the long wait is almost over. Later this summer, LOCAL NATIVES is releasing its third studio album, following up on the success of 2013's Hummingbird.

Digging for History

On the job at an archaeological survey of Riverfront Park
The first thing that lets you know that the Indiana Jones franchise lied to you is the hats. Ashley Morton and James Burr Harrison do not have cool hats.

Time is of the Essence

The works on display in the Jundt Museum's newest exhibition won't be around forever
Every third year since 2001, Gonzaga University's Jundt Art Museum has invited several local artists to decorate a selection of its walls by drawing directly on them. After a matter of weeks, the walls are painted over, the artists' works never to be seen again.

Let the Wanderlust Win

Why you shouldn't let anything hold you back from traveling
Many evenings I paced the floor of my tiny Spokane apartment, trying to work up the courage to call up friends and go out. Too nervous, I would often surrender to the comfort of my bed, a bowl of ice cream and a slew of Netflix shows.

Television | UnREAL

Deliciously self-aware hypocrisy that you'll want to watch
When you create a TV show, you have choices. You can create the sort of sexist show that leers at hot women in tiny bikinis.

For Your Consideration

Tech-centric TV, a wholly original game and classic Kills
MUSIC | Since their 2003 debut, indie/garage rock band the Kills have been refining their distinctive style and winning fans over with their plentiful personality. The band, comprised of singer Alison Mosshart and guitarist Jamie Hince, went on hiatus in 2013 when Hince suffered a hand injury that necessitated numerous surgeries and forced him to relearn to play his instrument from scratch.

Ever wonder what it's like to become a princess for a living? These Spokane women can tell you

SCIENCE | BODIES HUMAN

Mobius Science Center opens its new location with a revealing exhibit
It's taken years for Mobius Science Center to find the right spot. When it opened in 2012, it was right in the middle of a retail sector downtown, which is not an ideal location for a museum, says CEO Phil Lindsey.

For Your Consideration

A stirring debut, surreal sitcom and reading the G.O.A.T.
ALBUM | "I've got to get out of this tree, off of this limb. I'm a woman acting like a kid," Margaret Glaspy sings on the title track of her new album EMOTIONS AND MATH, but the 12 songs filling this excellent debut mark the 27-year-old singer/guitarist as mature beyond her years.

Setting Sail

Vessel Coffee Roasters thinks a lot about each cup
Some people think turning something you're passionate about into a job will make you hate it. Ike Bubna and Sean Tobin disagree.

On a Roll

New shop brings Thai-inspired ice cream rolls to Post Falls; plus, Steam Plant parties
At 15 degrees below zero, things freeze really fast. Milk, for example, turns icy as it solidifies, which is the premise for Freezia, a new ice cream shop in Post Falls.

Nature's Enigma

Huckleberries have yet to be successfully domesticated, but one North Idaho farmer may be on his way to unlocking the berries' secret
Joe Culbreth admits he's been out "huckleberryin'" only once in the past decade. Back in the day, he'd set lofty goals to harvest at least 10 gallons each summer, scouring the North Idaho mountainsides near Fourth of July Pass for the tiny purple gems.

Specialty Slices

Slice Pints & Pies brings a family feel to the Gonzaga area
When you're near Gonzaga's campus, a new spot with blue walls, bright-red stools and a signed basketball above the bar can only mean one thing — a new place to watch Zags games. Revolver Bar & Lounge owners Romeo Villaro and Amanda Haines are accustomed to heading into work when the bar opens at 5 pm, but having four kids, the couple wanted to open a place they could bring the kids in to visit.

Short Order

A new food truck on the scene serves up specialty burgers and fries in the Shadle Park area
The converted school bus just showed up one day in early June, and it hasn't left its parking spot near the corner of Rowan and Maple since, catching the eyes and tempting the hungry stomachs of northbound commuters with its mustard-yellow paint and a wooden sign along the top emblazoned with its name — Short Bus Bistro. The newly debuted burgers-and-fries food truck — or, rather, food bus — is the result of an ongoing project by four Spokane friends who spent more than two-and-a-half years retrofitting the bus they bought from a Tri-Cities church.

New Flavors, New Ideas

The Steel Barrel is home to Chad White's ceviche spot and a brewery incubator
There might come a time when people look back at the experiment happening at the Steel Barrel and consider its arrival an important moment for the Spokane food scene. In the meantime, the combination of brewing incubator, taproom and ceviche restaurant is already offering things the Inland Northwest has never seen.

Invisible Man I saw you, having a great time with our old friends, bbqs and parties, replacing me with your new husband. I see our old friends but they don't see me. Holidays, Birthdays, the birth of our first grandchild went unnoticed in my home by all except for me. They say one should be happy for other people and their fortunes and happiness.
