Sure, sure, the weather outside may be "frightful," but brave it anyhow. With so many awesome events this weekend, there are no excuses whatsoever to be bored this weekend.
Tonight you can go stage or screen, with Welsh/Garcia's production of Wieners and Boobs, a play about the Sheriff of Teaneck New Jersey trying to kick out all the hookers at VAC, or the big premiere of Greg Baynes new documentary, Jens Pulver: Driven, about the first-ever three-time world MMA champ.
There will also be a Driven after-party at Cazba where you can hobnob like a genuine bigwig. Faaan-see.
The big game is on Saturday, but if that ain't your thing, you can always cruise up to Brundage for demo-day, your chance to try out all sorts of new gear you can't afford.
And for the young 'uns, there will be Santa-a-plenty. He can make it to every house in one night, so he can also be in multiple spots across the city during a weekend. He'll be hearing Christmas wishes at The Berryhill Ballroom all weekend and at The Linen Building on Sunday.
But hey, you're probably grown up. That's why you can read and use the internet. And you, in the immortal words of Dee Snider, "wanna rock." Well, fresh off winning two Portland Music Awards, Keegen Smith and the Fam will be playing some killer acoustic soul and reggae at Reef on both Friday and Saturday nights for only $5. But if that ain't your thang, then hit up Neurolux, for Built to Spin, a DJ set from Built to Spill frontman, Doug Martsch at 11 p.m. on Saturday.
Or, if none of that suits you, you can risk life and limb to go hunting for feral pigs south of Mountain Home with chef and BW blogger Randy King because your boss says "it will make for good video." Hunting accidents always do. Sigh.
So no excuses, Boise. Go forth and be awesome this weekend.
