Personally, I've never really had a nickname that stuck with me. When I was just a wee moppet, my mother would occasionally refer to me fondly as her little “Stinky McGooberkins”, but if anyone called me that now, they'd most likely get shanked in the spleen with the business end of a broken bottle of Jägermeister. On the other hand, Tim Mitchell, owner of downtown Coeur d'Alene's newly opened Jonesy's restaurant had a childhood nickname that he thinks still rocks. According to the Jonesy's Facebook info, the name on the sunny yellow sign out front is what has always made Mitchell's head turn and say “huh?” every time someone says it/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here.
Question: What was your childhood/teen nickname?
Tourist season must be about here. We know about five new food places opening in downtown Coeur d'Alene. We'll try to outline them as they get close to opening. The first is Jonesy's Breakfast & Lunch, opening Wednesday at 819 Sherman Ave. The 4,000-square-foot place this past winter was the Sherman Junction Restaurant, and it previously housed several eateries, starting with Sambo's in the 1950s and most notably as Rustler's Roost/Nils Rosdahl, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: How often do you dine out in downtown Coeur d'Alene?
We just received the press release below in our inbox today. Looks like someone is coming in to (hopefully) clear away the bad juju in the building that was most recently the ill-fated Sherman Junction. Hopefully, they can survive the curse that seems to have hovered over the place since Rustlers Roost evacuated all those years ago. We wish them luck and look forward to having some deep breakfasts at Jonesy's. There is a bare bones Facebook page for Jonesy's here, if you want to stay fully updated/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho.

Question: Why have restaurants tried and failed at the location that was once the successful home for Wood McEvers' Rustler's Roost?
