Julian Sands in Celebration of Harold Pinter at the Morrison Center


Looking for something fun and FREE to do this weekend? Friday night the Morrison Center is hosting an evening with Julian Sands in a Celebration of Harold Pinter (seen in features such as Arachnophobia, Oceans 13, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). In 2005 Julian Sands worked closely with playwright and poet Harold Pinter to prepare a selection of his poems for a presentation in London. Twelve years later, experience this same brilliant, rich, and humorous show in our nick of the woods. Pick your FREE ticket up at the Morrison Center box office (seating is limited, so act quick to reserve yours)!

Grab a cup of hot tea and enjoy 2 free half-hour dance lessons and plenty of time to practice your new moves!

For the Nightowl:


Payette Gelande Quaffing at Silly Birch


This Sunday be sure you make your way over to Silly Birch for Payette Brewing’s Gelande Quaffing Tournament! In case you’re not familiar with this drinking game, it supposedly began “when skiers, bending an elbow, watched as a mug of beer sent sliding down the bar fell off the edge - where it was plucked out of mid-air and chugged by a drinking game pioneer.” Sound like your kind of sport? Round up a group of friends and come participate or just watch this beer drinking competition Sunday from 1:30-6 PM. Get more deets here!


Minus the Bear at the Knitting Factory


Just last week, Minus the Bear released their 6th studio album, “VOIDS”, and this week Boise gets to be one of the first locations to see them perform their new songs live! Catch this show Friday night at 8 PM at the Knitting Factory. Save on your tickets and buy them in advance here, or purchase them the day-of at the Knitting Factory for $20!


Jeff Dunham at the Taco Bell Arena


Comedian and ventriloquist, Jeff Dunham, will be performing at the Taco Bell Arena this Saturday evening. Seen on The Tonight Show, Comedy Central, and stages across the world- Dunham and his characters are bound to have you laughing! Ticket prices range from $33-$58, reserve yours here!
