BRAND SPANKIN’-NEW! - …something!

The culture of Spokane is ours for the taking.....and blogging.

Alllrighty - so here's a...(like I previously exclaimed..) BRAND SPANKIN'-NEW section that's going to be hitting the blog weekly. I'd like to call it the 'Venue of the Week', or 'The Hot Spot'...or 'Cool Places for Cool People Like Us'...(hmmm. Perhaps shorten that to 'CPFCPLU'??)  Anyways - I'm looking for a good title and want all of YOU to help me out.

Here's the lowdown: Every week I'm gonna check out a new place in the Spokane-area.  It could be a coffee shop, resturant, neat-o grocery store, boutique, - maybe even some little kid's lemonade stand.  But here at the Vox Box, you're going to get all of the details and insight.

Any concerts coming to town?  Cool festivals? Slammin' shows? New businesses? You'll hear about it. Feel free to comment up and give me some ideas. Tell me where to go next! (I'm allllways up for a new coffee house - anywhere, anytime...:)...) Love it.

Over and out!

What should the name be? That's my main question; every good adventure had a name....

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
