COWGIRLS PARTY BUS

353 Ave. E, Kuna, 208-922-9522, cowgirlsaloon.com

We here at BW are quick to encourage drinking. It’s good for the economy, and it makes you more attractive. The only exception is when you pair it with driving. That combo is just a bad idea. A DD is fine, but let’s be honest, everyone thinks they can have just one and be OK. And they’re wrong. But when you want to get out of downtown to do your boozing, what other choice is there? The Cowgirls Express. Make a reservation Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights and they’ll pick up you and your pals and then drop you back off at the end of the night. They’ll also be glad to scoop you up from all major concerts to schlep you back to Kuna where you can keep the party rocking. This way, everyone stays employed and alive.

BEST ’70S THROWBACK

DINO’S

4802 Emerald St., Boise Back in the day, guys put on their tightest bell-bottoms, combed their mustaches, jumped in their Camaros and headed to Dino’s, where the girls, who had spent the evening making sure their bangs were feathered perfectly (and liberally doused with Aquanet) were waiting, sharing a Derailer and tapping their feet to the band. Honestly, other than the fashions and an interior facelift, not much has changed. It’s still a destination for those who want to drink, dance and possibly make a love connection.

BEST REASON FOR A NEW ROCK SUB-GENRE

VAGERFLY

Rock duo Vagerfly is local living proof that a band that sings about the cooter can rock. Vagerfly’s Michelle Fast and Sara Mclean don’t get on stage and worr y whether the crowd is going to feel all safe and comfor table. With a keyboard set to sound like a 17th centur y harpsichord, they sing about the girls who spend hours getting dressed up just to go “shake their genitals” all up on some guy. Vagerfly doesn’t take anything too seriously, and they hope audiences respond in kind. Sometimes Fast and Mclean look like they’ve just left a crime scene—where one was the victim and the other was the perpetrator. Other times you might catch them per forming in what look like animal masks on their jumblies (nope, it’s paint). But no matter what they are—or aren’t wearing—they are always making great music. Vag rock anyone?
