Buzz Bin 

by MICHAEL BOWEN & r & & r & Buzzed for the Bike & r & & r & It's a beautiful weekend morning and you'd love to go for a long bike ride. But you've got a flat, your rear brakes need some adjustment, and you're kinda hung-over. Before the ride, you could sure use a double latte.

What you could use is Spoke 'n' Joe. That's the new bike-repair-and-espresso-bar joint that opens this Saturday (15 hours a day!) at 2718 E. 57th Ave. (at Palouse Hwy.).

Owner Joe de Godoi -- he used to be a mechanic on the Tour de France, and he has years of elite amateur cycling experience -- will fix just about anything on a bike. "If you have a 40 mph crash into a curb, we can straighten out your forks, fix the derailleur hangers, whatever you need," he says.

Spoke 'n' Joe features a repair shop, an information kiosk, TV-viewing areas, and lots and lots of energy bars and coffee. Call 370-7004.

After that 40 mph crash, de Godoi can fix the bike, but can he do anything for the cyclist? "I've got a number you can call," he says, laughing.

Christian In-Fighting

Instead of finding common ground in Scripture and reading it with compassion, conservatives and liberals are always bickering over the Bible. Donn Morgan is here to put a stop to that. Morgan, who is president of an Episcopal graduate seminary in Berkeley, will lead a workshop at St. John's Cathedral on Saturday from 10 am-3 pm. For just $20 (including lunch), you'll get an opportunity to examine the ideas in Morgan's most recent book, Fighting With the Bible: Why Scripture Divides Us and How It Can Bring Us Together. Visit or call 624-3191.

The Art of Topography

Northwest native Matt Sellars is an artist who has shown throughout the region. Educated at Cornish School of the Arts and now represented by Seattle's Platform Gallery, he's bringing his solo exhibition, "Scablands -- Evidence Laid Bare," to the SFCC Gallery this week, with a slide show (full of off-kilter barns) on Wednesday, April 9, to open the show and a workshop (May 9-10) at its conclusion. Visit or call 533-3710.

    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.
