Viking Tavern trivia challenge: where was its earlier location and who ran it?

View Larger Map

Spokane's Viking Tavern closed its doors Tuesday, and owner Barbie Randazzo hasn't said what her long-term plans are.

The popular hangout has been a North Spokane establishment since 1994. But as some readers of our daily news story noted, the Viking also had an earlier life on the city's South Hill.

We'll hand out a prize — free registrations for the pretty cool web browser plugin Boomerang for Gmail — for those who correctly answer both of these Viking Trivia Questions:

A. Where was the previous incarnation of the Viking, before being reborn at 1221 N. Stevens?

B. Who was the person who ran it?  If you get either the first or last name right, you'll get credit for a right answer.

Just stick your answers in comments below. Check back to see who's won the prizes. Winners will be announced on this blog and winners will be contacted via email.

Boomerang for Gmail works with the Chrome and Firefox browsers. It's a plugin that lets you take control of when you send and receive email messages.

Please keep it civil. Don't post comments that are obscene, defamatory, threatening, off-topic, an infringement of copyright or an invasion of privacy. Read our forum standards and community guidelines.
