Linnie's Thai Cuisine re-opens on Sunset Hwy.

Linnie's Thai Cuisine is back! Linnie's has operated in Downtown Spokane since 2004, and other local locations since as far back as 1990. But, last year it was announced that Volunteers of America would be purchasing the site Linnie's stood on Downtown for a new homeless housing project. Linnie's owners wasted no time in finding a new location to provide their delicious Thai dishes to the masses.

The restaurant's owners have recently re-opened in the former Asian Restaurant building at 5306 W. Sunset Hwy. about 2 miles west of Government Way. The owner and chef E Muongkhoth says he is still serving up authentic, quality Thai food that customers have come to love over the years, and " everyone is happy ".

And, he must have made a few people happy as this month marks the beginning of Linnie's Thai Cuisine's 29 year in business. Muongkhoth came to the United States as political refugee from Laos in 1979, finding his way to Spokane in 1984. Working for others at first until he opened the first location of this restaurant with just $6,000.

Linnie's Thai Cuisine is open M-F 11-9 and Sat. 4-9pm. They can be reached anytime at 509-747-5760 and a menu can be found on

A look at Spokane's first indoor aquarium, Blue Zoo, with photos!

In case you haven't already heard, Spokane is about to get a brand new indoor aquarium!

The new business is under construction now and will be called Blue Zoo. Blue Zoo is expected to open sometime this Summer, next door to Buffalo Wild Wings in Northtown Mall. Recently, Blue Zoo was nice enough to allow us a tour of their progress, and from what we saw I can safely say it will be unlike anything Spokane has ever seen.

While not as large as the established aquariums in bigger cities, Blue Zoo will pack their 11,000 square feet full of dozens of species of animals. Even more unique, Blue Zoo will have a couple of rooms included to see birds and lizards as well. There will even be scheduled mermaid and a pirate shows!

Among the attractions will be 30,000 gallon shark tank with kids crawl, Giant Pacific Octopus Tank and designated tanks for everything from fresh water fish to predator's! A full list of their attractions is on their website listed below. I can safely say Blue Zoo will be a must do for anyone who is even remotely interested in fish and marine life.

Blue Zoo is still at least a couple months away from opening to the public. But, annual passes are already up for sale and with early bird pricing they are cheaper now then they may ever be again. Passes are for sale from an individual economy pass for $39 up to the Ultimate Family Annual Pass which allows 2 adults and unlimited children access to Blue Zoo anytime during open hours for just $199. Also after opening, guests will be able to check out Blue Zoo via daily passes but the annual pass provides a more budget friendly approach. A full rundown of all pricing is available on their website at

In addition to the main attraction, Blue Zoo will also have a gift shop at the entrance and a birthday party room available for anyone to rent from $249+ or $199+ if you have an annual pass! Themed birthday parties will also be available as will mermaid and pirate meet and greets. More info on birthday parties are also available on their web site.

Watch for hopefully many more updates as Blue Zoo develops and opens this Summer. And, for business owners Blue Zoo is excited to offer sponsorship opportunities, contact them directly for more on those incredible opportunities.
