When people in the City of Trees feel like having breakfast for dinner on a Saturday night but don't want to go through the hassle of preparing it, they don't have to settle for a substitute. They can go to Goldy's Corner for late-night blueberry pancakes and coffee. The Corner is also great for after-hours checkers and where Cheers-style familiarity is the "Norm." Outside of a gallery or museum, it's also a primo spot to see work by local artist Julia Green.
Green, a Boise native, is a member of Swell Arts Collective, lead designer for Hella Cool Kids and artist for Beardface Supply Co. Green's style is at once familiar and unique, combining the sensibilities of Adventure Time, Hanna-Barbera and mid-century American national park propaganda. Her work has been displayed and sold at Flying M Coffee, the Visual Arts Collective and a number of other locations where you would expect to see dynamic, illustrative art—you can even find mugs, cell phone cases, throw pillows and shower curtains with Green's designs (society6.com). Check out her work at Goldy's on First Thursday, 5-9 p.m.
