    The best BBQ in the world is probably made on some guy's back porch that doesn't know he could make a restaurant out of it.

    On the other hand if you like a range of BBQ, particularly hawaiin, Aloha Island Grill on Francis is my favorite in Spokane. Don't make it a date night though, it only seats about 10 and feels like the old Papa Johns lobby on Hamilton.

    I love Aloha Island Grill. It might be the one thing I miss the most about Spokane.

    The saltiest popcorn on the planet & the coolest party booths around.

    Possibly the smallest bathrooms too...

    That is what I remember of the Bulldog.

    I was always under the impression that the Zag men were the targets for the Kinman coed population. Hunt and peck, if you will.

    Three words that have served me well over the years ...... "I don't remember".

    Then there are the four words that have the same effect .... "I'll take the 5th".

    Steve. If you have to ask who Steve is, you don't know Steve. Does he still work there?

    Why is it in some of these posts and the PM's that are flying around that the most prevalent words/phrases are "Kinman" and "5th Amendment?"

    It was that way, until my dormmates stripped me and locked me on the balcony of 2nd floor DeSmet as a birthday present.

    From that point on, the "hunting and pecking" of Kinman coeds vanished much like the dinosaurs after the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event.

    Not even close.

    Try Chicken-n-More downtown. My best friend was born and raised in Alabama and complained about the lack of southern bbq in Spokane. I took him to Chicken-n-More and he ordered the pulled pork, greens, hushpuppies and red beans & rice. After we were through, he bought two bottles of their bbq sauce to take home saying. "That is southern bbq."

    Now it's on our monthly lunch spot rotation.

    Default Some quick thoughts

    JohnO: My daughter moved to Austin a year ago and we had BBQ at Salt Lick there and Pappas in Houston. We loved both; what do you think?

    Everybody else: Didn't you used to be able to walk from the Bulldog into Pete's without going outside? And does anybody else here remember Van Gorp Place, the one-block long street near Colonial Bowl? And Pagan Pink? 77 cents. Enough said.

    The "Student Stuffer" at Paki's was a culinary treat...especially when you had a big case of the munchies caused by inhaling the acrid smoke emanating from neighboring rooms.

    Second hand smoke was just a fact of life in those days.

    (1) Trick question, perhaps ? Pete's started out as a pizza shell business (selling frozen, rolled out, dough, to other pizza parlors) inside the sw corner of the Bulldog. There was an outside and an inside entrance from the BD.

    Pete's later on moved next door, the BD expanded the old Pete's space in to a hamburger joint, and Pete's kept making shells but expanded to serving calzone's and pizza.

    If you want to go back even further, & you are not too confused, the original bulldog Tavern was in what is now the Pete's Pizza building. The present Bulldog is made up of old WW II surplus sections of barracks or buildings of that vintage and shape, that once stood behind Webster grade school, across the street from der Bingle's house. Webster later became the GU Law School & is now a full block of student housing in the 600 block between sharp and sinto.

    (2) Yes, I remember Van Gorp.

    (3) Pagan Pink ? Nope. I'm guessing it was a drink in one of those holes in the wall pubs along the west side of division somewhere, or else at Mary Glass' Bubble Inn. But just guessing. Further it would probably involve wine and a soft drink, since hard drinks were not in the pubs. Close ?

    Default I am confused!

    Man, I hope I wasn't peeing in the freezer on my trip to Pete's. I just thought it was a bit drafty in the hallway. And Pagan Pink was a particularly fruity flavor of Ripple. Even tried finding a vintage bottle on Ebay last year, to no avail. There's no accounting for taste, or lack of it! And I'm happy to hear that I didn't make Van Gorp up in my head. Like an imaginary friend.
