New business openings & closings - Facebook edition- Oct. 18th

For those that don't know what these posts are. Basically, I post and share a lot of posts about new businesses on our Facebook page ( ) but many of those don't get mentioned on the main site. Why? usually it's because I don't have enough info to do a write up on it so I wait till these posts to do a kind of re-cap.

But, first before getting into the Facebook shares there are couple of new businesses I'm watching and waiting to learn more about. Those are-

- Something called Tacos El Charrito is coming to the former Laguna Café space on the South Hill

- Looks like something might finally be coming to the former Hooters in Spokane Valley. I don't know for what yet but the graffiti on the back is gone and it's all been painted and cleaned up.

-The same people behind Celebrations cupcake bakery in the Garland District are planning a new place called Lilac City Bakery in the former White Box Pies space at E. Sharp and Ruby near Gonzaga.

-A place called Chef Lu's Asian Bistro is coming to a storefront in the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center. Also, there Mathnisium is taking over the former RadioShack store space.

- Pho Vietnamese Restaurant is coming soon to Liberty Lake in the space that was last Twisp Café coffee shop.
