Bricolage, the little shop at the end of Sixth Street, specializes in indie, Idaho-made goods and knows how to do First Thursday right.
This month, the store features the cartoonishly surreal but emotional work of artist Tony Rios, as well as local author Christian Winn's new volume of short stories, Naked Me, which examines adulthood and childhood, friendship and love as experienced by promising friends, lost souls, fathers and gamblers.
Around the corner on Broad Street, Boise Brewing has beer, of course. BB will also have grub from Phil & Lou's BBQ and is hosting a silent auction for figurines of Boise's own Treasure Valley Rollergirls made by local artist Peter Langenbach (peterlangenbach.com). Pull up a stool, order a Hip Check IPA and support Boise's shreddingest ladies of the rink.
