The gloves are off for this one ladies and gentlemen.  Place your bets and choose your sides. The heavy weight, battle royale for Spokane nightlife supremacy is on!  Will the Pub Crawl prevail?  Or will the Martini March march on?

In the red corner, weighing in at a pint and a pitcher; a top-choice for guys' weekends, bachelor parties and beer connoisseurs  . . . the Pub Crawl!  This legendary tradition has reached new heights in Spokane. A virtual pitcher full of unique breweries, pubs, bars and dives combine to form the promised land of Pub Crawls.  Think Garden of Eden, but with beer instead of fruit.  Heavy hitting hot spots include:  Steam Plant Grill, Northern Lights Brewery, O'Doherty's Irish Grille, The Elk, and The Viking.  And to think, that's just round one.  Good luck not getting knocked out!

Knockout Punch:  Stand on the bar, sing a song of your choice and put a dollar bill with your signature up on the wall.  You're now an official O'Doherty's family member.  You're first drink is always half price.  It's the gift that keeps on giving. 

In the blue corner, weighing in at a petite martini glass; a top-choice for girls' nights out, ladies' weekends and guys looking to score points . . . the Martini March!  Once unheard of in Spokane's nightlife scene, the Martini March has ridden the wave of new bistros, lounges and restaurants throughout Spokane to popularity and prominence.  Lethal combination options include:  Bistango Martini Lounge, Scratch Restaurant & Rain Lounge, Wild Sage, The Peacock Lounge, Cavallino . . . the list could go on.  It just goes to show the Martini March packs a punch.

Knockout Punch:  Make your way to Bistango and order the Fireworks Martini.  This coffee based concoction with add a spark to your night . . . literally!

I'm not asking you to choose one or the other and stick to that one forever.  That would be nearly impossible.  It'd be like giving a little kid two pieces of candy and telling him to only eat one.  I'm just asking you to pick your favorite.  Oh, and do you have any places to add?
