Hoopfest again, already.
The first few years of Hoopfest were accompanied by complaints from businesses downtown who found the flood of basketball crowds too disruptive.
There are still some who feel that way.
The Davenport is not among those who don't like Hoopfest. It's a Spokane business who's fully embraced the games and the fun of watching games.
Here's something I hadn't seen before: a lineup of chairs along the Davenport sidewalk facing Sprague Avenue. Those seats are for spectators, we assume.
Trouble is, once crowds roll in, those seats will be blocked off as mobs of people move up and down the sidewalk. Even so, it's a nice idea.
