$10 for $20 worth of Pub Fare and Drinks at the Checkerboard Tavern - Spokane

$10 for $20 Worth of Pub Fare and Drinks at The Checkerboard Tavern

I have never been to this tavern but it sounds like a lot of fun! Anyplace that serves Vegan Hot Dogs and PB&J dogs served in a He-Man lunch box has to be fantastic!

Slinging spirits for nearly 80 years, the historic Checkerboard Tavern tackles appetites with a menu of gourmet hot dogs and slays thirsts with local brews. Toting the oldest liquor license in the state above its well-stocked bar, the Check sports a wide selection of domestics ($2.25), microbrews ($3.50), and regional suds ($3.50) from Golden Hills, Laughing Dog, and Iron Horse, as well as an old-timey jukebox that coughs up five spins for each greenback fed into its golden gullet. Get cozy in a fire-engine-red booth and anchor incisors into an assembly of encased meats, such as the Sonnenberg Dog, which tops a classic italian sausage with onions, ketchup, mustard, and relish, or the old-fashioned PB&J Dog, which arrives with crusts cut off in a He-Man lunchbox ($4). All dogs can be substituted for vegan tofurkey sausage, and assorted snacks and house fries are available for noshing ($5–$6).

Bask in the glow of the Check's big-screen televisions, or admire owner Keith's vintage motorcycles as live music on weekends soundtracks his epic tales of stunt jumps over shark-filled fermentation tanks.
