Sandpoint-based Evans Brothers Coffee has landed in Spokane. Founded in 2009 by brothers Rick and Randy Evans, the coffee roasting biz now has three Inland Northwest locations: Sandpoint, Coeur d’Alene and a new Spokane cafe inside the recently rejuvenated Wonder Building just north of the downtown core. To celebrate, the Evans Bros. are throwing a grand opening shindig, complete with a latte art throwdown (6:30 pm), blind coffee tastings, live DJs, a coffee cocktail bar and breakdancing performances by local group SOL Tribe (8:30 pm). Since most of us can’t subsist just on coffee through hours of revelry, neighboring High Tide Lobster Bar is serving a special chicken tinga roll ($7) and other bites, and there’ll be a Bean & Pie pop-up shop. Wear your 1970s-’90s winter best to fit the party’s theme.
