We enter the stunning atrium through the large roll-up door on a sunny spring day. Immediately, I run into an old friend—a professor who works in the U-district, entertaining a visiting author with some local flavor. After a quick hello, we let them get back to their espresso-laden local ice cream. We cruise toward the back to have our current needs met: sandwiches, gyros, ales. We gawk at a giant chandelier made of century-old glass bottles, and our imaginations are captured by its story: a local man found each bottle over a lifetime of paddling on the Spokane River.
