The problem with being a Spokanite is that we just don’t have a good excuse to enjoy our own city. A tourist who’s in town for a single day is probably more likely than a lifelong Spokanite to do the SkyRide in Riverfront Park — and more likely to appreciate our river view and fine restaurants, too. Spokane Parks’ Wine, Ride & Dine event makes it easy to be a tourist in our own downtown for an evening, with a wine tasting with regional wineries, a glass of wine for the SkyRide and a multicourse dinner at either Anthony’s or Clinkerdagger, depending on the night. Mother’s Day treat? Special date night? Think ahead, because reservations are required.
