Applebee’s on hiatus for a few days

You may remember that the Spokane Valley Applebee's restaurant at Mission and Pines held an auction last week to sell off the sports memorabilia lining the walls. They're apparently doing a little more than redecorating. I drove by this morning and the restaurant was closed, but workers were busy all over. A sign next to Pines promises the grand re-opening of a better than ever restaurant on Thursday. So I guess that's the day to trek on over and see the results.

Cool auction coming on Thursday

I'm sure many people in the Spokane Valley area have eaten at the Applebee's Restaurant at Mission and Pines at least once or twice. Part of the dining experience is gazing up at the walls at all the cool stuff hanging there - vintage signs, sports memorabilia, uniforms and more. And probably you've seen something you really liked and muttered about how you would like that hanging on your own wall. Well, now's your chance.

Columnist Doug Clark has a great story today about an auction coming up at Applebee's Thursday night that will see all that good stuff sold to raise money for a local charity that helps families in crisis. The bidding starts at 7 p.m. Thursday and is expected to go on for hours. There's no word on whether the bar will be open or not, but maybe if you've got the family checkbook it would be a good idea if it's not. Check out Doug's full story here.

Breakfast is served

If there's a better way to start off a relaxing holiday weekend than with a yummy breakfast that helps local students, I'm not sure what that would be. On Saturday morning the Applebees restaurant at Pines and Mission will be serving up breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. to benefit choir students at East Valley High School. Tickets are $7 at the door. The only downside that I can think of is having to get out of bed at a reasonable hour instead of sleeping in. But certain sacrifices sometimes have to be made.
