It’s the most delicious time of the year! February means one thing in Spokane – Inlander Restaurant Week. From February 23 – March 4, over 100 restaurants team up for amazing food at even more amazing prices. It’s a great chance to get out and discover all the culinary creations hiding and thriving in the Spokane region. We want you to make the most of this yearly tradition, so we’re taking a look at everything you need to know for Inlander Restaurant Week.
What is it?
Inlander Restaurant Week is 10 days of prix fixe meal options at participating restaurants in Spokane, Liberty Lake, Airway Heights and North Idaho. Participating locations offer special three-course menus created just for IRW for either $19 or $29. Each course comes with three options to choose from so you can create a truly unique dining experience.
Why we love it
We love IRW because it not only supports our area restaurants in a huge way, but it gives folks an opportunity to discover new places they may not have visited before. It also gives our amazing chefs and restaurateurs a chance to shine even more than they already do! Food brings people together, and IRW brings the entire Spokane community together.
Plan your culinary adventure
There are over 100 restaurants participating in IRW, so there are tons of options to check out. Lucky for you, you can view all the menus ahead of time! Every menu is available online at inlanderrestaurantweek.com and they’re all broken down by region, as well as by type of food.
Online not your style? The folks at The Inlander have you covered. Pick up the official IRW Guide at The Inlander offices, at the Visit Spokane kiosk in River Park Square (or at our offices), as well as any Numerica Credit Union branch. The guide has more than just menus, it looks at this year’s trends, introduces us to newcomers, and gives a rundown of all the Drink Local partners serving up locally made brews, wines and spirits to pair with your amazing meals.
Make a night of it
What goes perfectly with fantastic food? Amazing live entertainment! And IRW is jam packed with great events and shows throughout Spokane. If you love theater you can check out Kinky Boots at the INB Preforming Arts Center. If you’re looking for live music there’s the Northwest Bach Festival, which is hosting many of its events at Barrister Winery. Or you can grab your cowboy boots and hit the Blake Shelton concert at the Spokane Arena. Or if comedy is more your thing, you can go see Comedy Central and Pitch Perfect star Adam Devine at The Bing Theater.
Connect on social
IRW is about more than having a great night out. It’s a chance for you to give back to the community. When you venture out, make sure to use #IRWRaveReviews and hop on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and post about where you ate and what you loved. For every post with the hashtag, Sysco will donate five meals to Second Harvest. It’s an easy way for us all to give back and help those in need right here in our own community!
