The Boise Weekly office is pretty much what you'd expect: whiskey bottles stacked to the ceiling and a staff pegasus that shuttles us all home. On Tuesdays, we have to enter the office via a fireman's pole (because that's the day the front door is blocked by our porcupine-fighting ring), and every other Friday is clothing-optional.
But we recognize that not everyone desires such a swinging lifestyle. Some people just like to kick back with some knitting needles and chat about a good book, potentially as an escape from just the sort of yahoos that work at Boise Weekly. And today, if you're one of those kind of people, you're in luck because once a month, the library at Cole and Ustick provides just such a refuge with the Purls and Pages Book Group.
The group is a hybrid knitting and book club in which you can share patterns, knotting techniques and your thoughts on the use of Osama bin Laden as a literary character.
Meetings are held the the second Thursday of every month. They start at 7 p.m. and are free.
