Five Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

When you aren’t freezing off your patriotic tail at Veteran’s Day events Saturday and Sunday.

1. CHECK OUT THE DUNWELLS
British folk-rockers The Dunwells will perform at 8 p.m. tonight at The Drink in Boise. It’s a cool opportunity to hear gorgeous vocal harmonies for $5. Get a taste of The Dunwells on the radio during a live in-studio performance at noon today on 94.9 FM The River.

2. GET JACKED FOR SKIING
The Winter Wildlands Alliance is throwing the first celluloid punch this year with the 8th annual Backcountry Film Festival at 7 p.m. tonight at the Egyptian Theatre. (Warren Miller’s big-screen extravanganza shows up later this month.) Tickets are $10.

3. DROP THE PUCK
Would you rather watch Boise State stomp Hawaii on TV Saturday or go to an actual sporting event? Actually, you can do both this weekend. The Idaho Steelheads will smack puck tonight and Saturday against Bakersfield at CenturyLink Arena.

4. SEE THE ASIAN INFUSION
Arts reporter Dana Oland wrote an interesting piece in Scene about the Trey McIntyre Project’s new collaboration with Korean dancers. The performances are at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Morrison Center.

5. EAT TO STAY WARM
There’s a Food Truck Rally with nine local eateries (that I know of) showing up from 5 to 9 p.m. today at 401 S. Broadway St. Let’s hope they have burning barrels blazing.

Also kiss the Statesman goodbye!

You have other employment so I wish the rest luck.

If you still print the same stuff everybody else gets from AP, Reuters and Yahoo! without subtantive local content beyond this, you are doomed to fail wanting money from me.
