Local food lovers can get an early taste of the upcoming, sixth annual Inlander Restaurant Week (February 22 to March 3) during a special preview of the 10-day culinary celebration. Benefiting Restaurant Week’s designated charity, Second Harvest Inland Northwest, the second annual First Bite event features samplings of menu items from seven of this year’s participating restaurants, along with artisan cheeses from select Dairy Farmers of Washington creameries. Perhaps the best part, though, is that guests will be first to see the official list of all restaurants participating in this year’s Restaurant Week, and can browse the more than 100 three-course menus for all of those restaurants across the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene area.
Thu, Feb. 1 from 6-8 pm • $31/person • 21+ • Barrister Winery • 1213 W. Railroad Ave. • bit.ly/2DJnhQk
