This photo taken April 14, 2015, shows a restored six cylinder Wolseley 1936 vintage car in Islamabad, Pakistan. Restoring vintage cars is like traveling back in history for Pakistani collectors, sometimes over a century. For an elite but passionate group of vintage car collectors in Pakistan, restoring antique rides is like traveling back in time and money seems to be no obstacle when the prize is a Lincoln convertible that belonged to an Afghan king or a... Bangash) Mohsin Ikraam, president of the Vintage and Classic Car Club of Pakistan, says the collectors help preserve a portion of the region’s history of the past century. Among rich Pakistanis, he says, the desire to own classic automobiles has been growing and the club’s membership has now topped 10,000.

Rather than simply painting slogans on tagboard or printing them on fliers, their message was blown up across the entire wall of the Spokane Convention Center. As the Department of Ecology held their hearings regarding oil trains at the DoubleTree hotel across the street, they could see, in giant, stenciled letters lighting up the dark, "No Bomb Trains" and "Stop Dangerous, Deadly, Explosive Oil and Coal... Employees at the Spokane Public Facilities District, which owns the Convention Center, asked Siegfried and Waley to turn off their spotlight.

Of course, there are more than a handful of all-night fast food offerings that any adult over 21 has likely given an obligatory shot at sating their after-hours hankerings. McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Jack in the Box (which offers up breakfast fare all day long), and even select Subway sandwich shops are open all night. If that can’t assuage the palate, night owls might consider one of the several Shari’s or Denny’s locations around the South Sound. The great thing about choosing any of the aforementioned drive-thru or diner fare is how affordable and speedy the service, as well as how diverse the options can be. For those who have had it up to here with the same old Munchie Meals and Grand... For example, open 24-hours and on opposite ends of the palate are Memo’s all-night taqueria and Dockside Donuts bakery in Tacoma. For diners who find themselves in the Puyallup area, Cattin’s Family Diner is also open all night.
