Update Sept. 26th, 2011
Found this in today's paper,Glad to hear Second Ave is back open thru the SoDo district.it's a great up and coming area that has been hit hard by the construction of Second.Seems like all construction projects on the Washington side of our area take longer then most(i.e. this project,Havana St. Bridge and the State Line bridge) but that's another topic altogether.....
For the past two years, traffic on Second Avenue has been hampered by reconstruction work – as has business for merchants along the street.
Last week, the work on Second from Division to Howard streets was finished. The new blacktop is smooth, and the white and yellow lines are fresh and easy to see.
Now business owners are waiting for customers to return.
“I think people are still kind of wary of downtown,” said Melody Padrta, who co-owns the Marketplace Wine Bar at Second and Browne.
“There are a lot of people who don’t know we are here,” she said.
The business shares space in a 21,000-square-foot building with the fledgling Spokane Public Market and Sun People Dry Goods Co., which sells sustainable and organic products.
Mayor Mary Verner was scheduled to attend the market’s grand opening Saturday, partly to mark the completion of $4 million in work on Second Avenue that started in spring of 2010.
Verner said in a news release last week she understood the hardship on Second Avenue businesses.
“We are pleased to join with the businesses along Second Avenue in welcoming citizens to a renovated street that will serve our community well into the future,” the mayor said.
Funding for the street reconstruction came from a bond issue approved by voters in 2004.
Other bond projects completed this year include Hatch Road from 57th Avenue and Perry Street to 43rd Avenue; Grand Boulevard from 29th Avenue to High Drive; Post Street from Maxwell to Cleveland avenues; and Mission Avenue from Hamilton to Greene streets.
Finally more growth in Riverstone...

2 Spokane landmark businesses burn in large fire
Something to watch for?
Demographic research, brand recognition within the state and other factors make Post Falls an ideal market for further expansion of the franchised restaurant concept. While the demand for family-friendly eateries continues to grow throughout Post Falls, providers are limited.
"While there's definitely a market for Beef 'O' Brady's in the Post Falls area, we're taking a careful approach to finding a franchise partner with business savvy, tenacity and a readiness to reinvest in the communities they serve," said James Walker, Chief Development Officer of Beef 'O' Brady's. "To ensure a long, happy partnership, we ensure that our franchise partners meet stringent criteria and share our values."
Beef 'O' Brady's is well-received in the markets it enters because of the food, atmosphere and dedication to community outreach. Since the company's inception, each Beef 'O' Brady's has committed itself to strengthening local ties through philanthropic partnerships and volunteerism. Expansion in Post Falls will also benefit the local economy through job creation and development agreements with area contractors.
The Idaho expansion comes just after the launch of several new innovations for Beef 'O' Brady's, including a lively new franchising website that features interactive, user-friendly tools to guide prospective franchise partners through its proven business model and fun, community-oriented brand culture.
Also new at Beef 'O' Brady's are fresh Angus Burgers that pack huge flavor and tenderness. Wing lovers have two new dry rubs to cheer about including lemon pepper and Paul Prudhomme's Blackened Seasoning. The new lunch menu, which features a renowned emphasis on variety, quality, speed and value, is increasing lunchtime traffic and loyalty amongst customers on the go.
Ironically, despite what its name implies, Beef 'O' Brady's is best known for its Buffalo chicken wings. Originally, the chain's menu featured a variety of items that featured beef and a variety of sandwiches. Later, founder Jim Mellody added his own recipe for Buffalo chicken wings, making the restaurant an even "hotter" place to eat.
