Discount Auto's compact, understated building brims with sleek blue siding but little hint of the mechanical prowess waiting inside. A cache of shimmering chrome auto parts greets clients when they walk through the door. Dexterous mechanics grab these parts to fix jalopies or fine-tune squeaking engines until they hum three-part arias with fan belts and carburetors and the engine belt that most resembles Pavarotti’s beard.
Located within the antiques district of Spokane, Outlaw Café fits right into the neighborhood by embracing the free-spirited history of the American West. In addition to a frontier-themed décor that includes works by local artists and regular stampedes, the menu helps to create a trailblazing feel with its selection of homespun comfort fare. Hearty breakfast platters brim with eggs, chicken-fried steak, or biscuits and gravy, and the menu's lunch items occasionally draw their names from iconic Western figures, as evidenced by the Wild Bill burger and the Hardin patty melt.
Craig Fruchter and Stephanie Schreiber team up with an impassioned troupe of instructors to lead students toward mental and physical health through a lineup of Bikram and power-yoga classes. Their dual locations swirl with balmy temperatures to loosen tight ligaments and help students ease deeper into the tension-relieving stretches. The warm air pricks beads of sweat on shoulders and brows while flushing out toxins and the spleen's discarded Funyun bags. With an eye on preserving the environment, both studios are scrubbed with nontoxic cleaning products each day and feature textured rubber floors and fresh-air ventilation systems. Marin Magazine in 2010 named Red Dragon one of the best yoga studios in Marin, and Pacific Sun named the business the best Marin yoga studio in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
The pizzas at Station House all start with the same careful attention to detail, beginning with cracker crusts made from fresh dough daily. But from there, the specialty pies venture into unique territory. There's the Conductor, a pie topped with ham, linguica, and mushrooms; the Great Northern, with pepperoni, green pepper, and italian sausage; and the Hobo, with mustard sauce, smoked polish sausage, onions, sauerkraut, and cheeses. Other specialty creations are designed for everyone from veggie lovers to pepperoni lovers, and all are available as a 13- or 16-inch pie. At lunch, pizza is available by the slice and can be paired with a small salad and soda, while chicken wings and build-your-own pizzas also make for hearty midday fare.
