MORNING BRIEFING: Stabby weekend makes Monday not seem so bad

Posted By on Mon, Feb 4, 2013 at 9:11 AM


The Inland Northwest continued its recent trend of stabby behavior this weekend: 

- One man stabbed another man four times this weekend at the Spokane Valley Hooters. Buzzkill, man — don't we all just go to Hooters for a good time? 

- A fight down in Pullman resulted in two men being stabbed: one in the chest and one in the butt. Yes, you read that right. (KXLY)

Whoops: the Spokane County Jail accidentally released this guy — then promptly deployed US Marshalls to haul him back in. (Bloglander)

High fives all around: A Spokane Valley woman takes two medals in the Special Olympics World Games in South Korea — gold in alpine downhill and bronze in the giant slalom. (KREM)

Loyal Bulldog fans are probably still up in arms about the closure of the Bulldog Tavern (most recently called the University Bar & Grill). But an awesome local coffee shop announced this weekend that they'll be taking over the space for a new GU District hangout. (KXLY) 


Alaska Brewing Company announces plans to power its operations with beer energy — not wind, not solar, but beer. This signals them becoming the most awesome place in the universe at this very moment. (SR)

The body of Richard III — a British King you might remember hearing about in your high school Shakespeare class — has been found … under a parking lot. (BBC)

Super Bowl is over.
