Alright - so here’s the first official ‘Adventure of Chloe Rambo’…yet I still don’t have the right name for it…it’s gotta be something dynamic (!), something catchy (!), something memorable (!). I’m lovin’ all of your ideas! So I’m going for something like Anthony Bourdain’s ‘No Reservations’…that’s the absolute perfect title for his show. It’s hardcore like Tony, memorable like Tony, and has a neat-o double meaning…(cause we all know that Mr. Bourdain is wayyy to cool to make standard resturant reservations AND the fact that he’s pretty fearless in what he does…) I’ll keep thinking on the whole ‘title’ thing…
Anyways - I thought it would be pretty cool for the first un-named post to give all you Spokane-teens a taste…(or at least a description of the taste), of where I’m from. So I hit up The Green Frog, an amazing little coffee-shop/cafe with mega-personality.
Complete with it’s own grocery, library, and post office, the town of Palouse, WA is one of the ‘more civilized’ places in Whitman County. (And only about an hour and fifteen minutes from Spokane…) Now throw The Green Frog into the town’s mix and we’ve got a town that’s quickly becoming a musical and cultural hot-spot, all thanks to this little addition in the business community.
Not only do owners Tiana and Paula feature Thomas Hammer coffee, espresso, (*ahhh!) and gourmet teas - they’re also servin’ up warm soups, sandwiches, wraps, even homemade (and crazy-delicious!) baked goods.
But what makes this place so unique, so slammin’, so popular in a small-town area? 3 words baby: Open Mic Nite. The Green Frog puts on a live-music fiesta every first Friday of the month, while also featuring a smaller “Live Music and Pita Pizzas” every Thursday. (These nights are super-popular…come early or stand.)
My Official-and-Total Favorite!: Warming up with a 12 oz. double Americano and an amazing ‘Cherry White Chocolate’ scone. (That’s what I enjoyed the day I took these shots!…yummm.) But if you’re hitting up for lunch, I always reccomend the mini-pita pizza. Perfect with melted cheese and fresh olives. Check out their page on Palouse’s website: http://www.visitpalouse.com/greenfrog.html. Over and out!
You got any skills to show off at an ‘Open Mic Nite?’ Where do YOU guys find the most scrumptious scones??
