Summer is all but gone, but your Neighborhood Council is still hard at work.

At this month's General Meeting Jonathan Mallahan will tell us about changes in the way that our neighborhood receives and allocates CDBG funding. Dallas Hawkins will talk about Street Maintenance. We will have a status report on this year's Concert series, and we will have some information and vote on ideas from the Friends of Coeur d'Alene Park.

Sounds like a full agenda, but we'll have you outa there by 8pm - guaranteed!

We start at 6:30 this Wednesday evening at the NW Museum of Arts and Culture, downstairs in the Gilkey Community Room.

Join us tomorrow evening for the 9th and final installment of our Free Summer Concert Series in the Park.

You wont be disappointed until they start packing up their equipment to go home.

And, as always, we are Family and Pet friendly.
See you there!

We have a new restaurant in the neighborhood!

Due to open sometime next week, the Hacienda Las Flores plans to open at the location of the long closed Sunset Junction.
I spoke to the owner Jorge this evening, and though he has a bunch of work to be done before he can open the doors, he's confidant that he'll get it done by Wednesday.

Featuring family recipes from Mexico City, Jorge and Adriana are excited to share their menu with you.

You may have already sampled their food, as they have offered the same menu at their 5th and Freya location for several years.
Moving to our neighborhood is a big plus for Jorge and the Browne's Addition Neighborhood.


Hacienda Las Flores
1801 W Sunset Blvd, Spokane, WA, 99201

We're running out of summer here in Spokane, and that means that we have only two concerts left of the nine weeks of our FREE Summer Concert Series.
This Thursday evening we have a group that has been a staple in the Spokane Music Scene for years.
The Hot Club of Spokane will take you back to the days of 30's era Jazz, and swing. If you have never had the chance to catch this gutsy group, put it on your punch list for Thursday evening!
They take the stage at 6pm, Thursday, August 21.
Bring your swing dance partner, your cousin, or your best friend's girl.
And as always, we are Family and Pet friendly.

Contact STA for the temporary bus schedules for Sunday morning through Sunday afternoon. (7:30am-2:30pm ) For more information on the Color Run....
