Five Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

After you’ve entered the contest to win free Carrie Underwood tickets:

1. PUT THE X IN XMAS
If ”Hairspray” is your favorite movie, you already have tickets for John Waters’ trashy, one-man holiday debacle tonight at the Knitting Factory. Looking for a cheaper bawdy holiday? “Tree Toppers — a show tonight and Saturday by Idaho female impersonation troupe LipsInc! — is the ticket. (Come on, be brave.)

2. HOOP IT UP
Forget the 0-4 start. Those games were on the road. The Idaho Stampede will reload for home opening weekend tonight and Saturday at CenturyLink Arena. Welcome back, Coby Karl.

3. HEAR EVERY HOLIDAY STORY EVER
Boise Little Theater is presenting the zany “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some)” which, be warned, might warp your view of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” forever. It runs tonight, Saturday and next weekend. You can get 2-for-1 admission at Dealsaver.com

4. CHECK OUT FIRST FRIDAY
With the whole town falling all over itself because of the new Whole Foods store, the Boise Co-op is doing its best to keep excitement high on the North End. Hence the new First Friday, a fresh event featuring live music, wine, beer and cheese tastings, and storewide specials.

5. SEE A DECENT FLICK
The lone movie opening in Boise this weekend is NOT what I’m talking about. Instead, grab Grandpa and go see the documentary ”Age of Champions.” It focuses on five competitors at the National Senior Olympics. It’s free. So is the popcorn. The film is at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Egyptian Theatre. Producer Keith Ochwat will be at the screening for a Q&A afterward.

Apple users, run the Gig of RAM your PC needs to have and read the dumb tech white papers, wrinkle your forehead and buy more food and toilet paper with the difference. The internet is a piece of junk anyway and your cats know this.

Wondering if KBOIs new morning news will work.

We know Bob Anthony is fine, it's his fourth network station in this market and I've known him since he worked for KSRV.

If they get rid of the agonizing pointless Twitter/facebook trivia question and report the news...

AND "Hello, Podunk etc". We don't care if the weatherman says hi, just report if we'll be flooded or under 15' of snow.

PS The frozen precip means women will stop wearing short pants...crazy.

Now I see they are trying the 4pm 'ain't home' news again...

What a maroon!
