You love happy hour, and you love reading. Why, you ask, do those two worlds never meet? You're either sitting in a noisy bar listening to forgettable conversations or home alone reading and drinking, which, let's face it, after awhile is a little sad.
The Cabin welcomes you to its literature-centric happy hour focusing on Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief
. Drink wine and have intelligent conversation with your fellow readers regarding the book, and pat yourself on the back for nailing two birds with one stone.
5:30 p.m. FREE. The Cabin, 801 S. Capitol Blvd., Boise, 208-331-8000, thecabinidaho.org.
