NOTE BIG THINGS ARE HAPPENING AT BW IN OCTOBER First things ﬁrst: If you’re trying to reach nearly anyone in the Boise Weekly editorial department other than myself this week, you’re out of luck. A good chunk of the department is out on vacation, so if you need to reach someone urgently and aren’t getting an answer: dial me up. In the next edition of Boise Weekly, on stands Wednesday, Oct. 10, you’ll ﬁnd a four-page center insert for Boise Weekly’s 11th annual Cover Auction, detailing every cover we’ve published over the last year, all of which will be on the auction block come Wednesday, Oct. 17. Don’t forget: Doors open at 5 p.m., auction starts promptly at 6 p.m. at the Idaho State Historical Museum. If you want to get an early look at the work, it will all be on display starting First Thursday, Oct. 4. After First Thursday, you can stop by anytime to see the art, but remember, until 5 p.m. the day of the auction, regular admission fees apply. Hitting stands the same day as the Cover Auction, Wednesday, Oct. 17, is a ﬁrst-ever publication, The Blue Review, which you’ll also ﬁnd right smack in the middle of Boise Weekly. The Blue Review is a partnership between Boise State’s College of Social Sciences and Public Affairs and Boise Weekly, with contributions from academics, journalists and community leaders in public affairs covering a variety of topics from politics to the environment. This ﬁrst edition of The Blue Review focuses on the race for the White House, examining the election from media, environmental and religious angles. More on that in the weeks to come. Two other things we’re working on behind-the-scenes include our annual Gift Guide, for which we’ve already scoured the city collecting a pile of holiday gifts in every price range, and the annual Christmas in the City guide, compiled by Downtown Boise Association as your guide to holiday events and shopping downtown. Yes, it may be barely October, but it is that time of year. In this edition of Boise Weekly, you’ll ﬁnd your monthly, trusty guide to First Thursday, with a map, listings and an indepth look at the economic impact one First Thursday event has had on the city (see Page 17). Further back is an intriguing story about Idaho’s connection to Ethiopian food—which, as foodies know, is lamentably missing from Boise’s culinary landscape despite the valley’s close ties with it nationally. —Rachael Daigle

ARTIST STATEMENT: I find the reason for creating artwork seems to rotate around images with a touch of fun as well as creative interest. The juxtapositions with several objects usually related to the found image is then added to the mix. Finally I use color to tie all together and hopefully end up with a satisfied solution.

DEWSHSHSHSHSHSHSHSH Part 2: Badger Bob reveals the essential Mitt
And another thing, Herr Wagner. Don’t you think a little dance music would have broken up the tension some? Really, there’s nothing like watching Rhine Maidens doing a little underwater polka to lighten the mood, don’t you think? Which brings up another question ... haven’t you ever heard of “comic relief?” “We’re a month out on this election, Cope. One f***ing month! And what the hell are you doing about it?” “Jeez, Bob. I told you? I’m writing a review of Der Ring Des Nibelungen. See, I’ve decided to frame it as an open discussion with the lingering vapors of Wagner’s ethereal presence—which isn’t as easy as it sounds, by the way—and here you are, butting into my concentration like a big old snoopy jackhammer.” “But that silly Wagner crap was last week.” “Well, it’s this week, too, darnit. I have as much reason this week to want to shut out the political cacophony as I did last week. Jeez Louise! ... what more is there to say about either President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Everybody who hasn’t been in a coma for the past year already knows who they’re going to vote for. If somebody doesn’t know by now what these two guys stand for, or how important this election is, or what they want for the future of this country, it can only mean he’s had his brain pickled in pixie dust. Now, Bob, let me get this review done. You know, there are other things in life than politics. So let me ask, Mr. Wagner, was it your intention for Siegfried to come off looking like such a dunce? Or did it just happen organically? And I don’t get how Brunnhilde could have fallen in love with him. What? Was it all about the size of his sword? Or am I missing some ...” “You already know what needs to be said.” “Remind me, Badger? What needs to be said?” “That Mitt Romney is a douche.” “Gosh, Bob! Has it come to this? Have American politics become so superﬁcial and nasty that name-calling is all we have left?” “Don’t be a baby, Cope. Politics have always had plenty of name-calling. Fact is, there is so much name-calling that an important truth gets covered up in the incessant noise, which is that now and then, the person being called a name actually is what he’s being called. And Romney is a douche. You know what I mean—conceptually.” “No, not at all. What do you mean, ‘conceptually?’” “See, Romney’s douchedom is the gooey center that oozes through all the contrived images he tries so hard—and so ineptly—to project. Savvy? There is nothing at his core, other than the pure essence of douche. Every attempt he makes to convince people there’s a substantial, fully actualized, thoughtful and empathetic human being hidden away beneath that forced grin and gelled hair comes off as just more douchiness. WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
His criticism of Obama for sympathizing with the Muslim protesters … douchy. His secret speech about the moocher 47 percent. More douchy. It all ﬁts a pattern, don’t you get it? Whether he’s insisting that corporations are people, insulting the cookies some lady offered him, feigning interest in how tall the trees are ... he’s like an onion. Layer upon layer upon yet another layer of undiluted douche. Remember this, Cope, Romney isn’t a douche because he says the things he says and thinks the things he thinks. No, he says those things and thinks those things because he’s a douche.” “Look Bob, if I absolutely have to call him a name, does it have to be ‘douche?’ That’s so … uh, it makes me think about things I don’t want to think about. So how about ‘weenie?’ I see him as a graceless, charmless, stiff weenie screw-up who takes credit for the accomplishments of his underlings but doesn’t really know hardly anything about anything. Or ‘bully?’ My wife thinks he’s a bully.” “Oh, he’s a bully all right. A born bully, from the time he chopped off another kid’s hair while his prep-school pals held the kid down, to when he was that smarmy Bain CEO, vivisecting wounded companies and chopping off employees. And yeah, he’s a weenie, too. After this campaign’s over, we’ll never again see him in another pair of Levi’s, or shaking another coal miner’s hand. But ‘bully,’ ‘weenie,’ ‘screw-up’ ... those are just separate ﬁngers on the complete Romney. He’s also a horse’s ass, a liar and a phony, all components to a larger presence, get it? Blend those elements together in one personality, and what you have is a great onomatopoetic word that sounds like what he is.” “Onomatopoetic?” “Yeah. Dewshshshsh. It’s the sound he hears in his head every time he ﬂushes a previous conviction to make room for a new version. Dewshshshsh.” “I know what you’re saying, Badge … I think. But the deal is, I have this review to ﬁnish. And by golly, I mean to ﬁnish it. All right, Dick ... I sort of get what you were getting at with Siegfried. He was born to win the ring … ‘preened’ to win the ring, you might say. But when all is said and done, that ring proved to be the end of Siegfried, have I got that right? And I have to think, what a puny mortal old Wotan chose to make his go-to guy. But I will say, I love that one song from Apocalypse Now. You know the one mean. It’s got all the French horns and ... uh, say Bob, you don’t have a name for me, do you? Something that encapsulates the essence of my inner authenticity?” “Sure do, Cope. Got lots of names for you. Goofus ... Mortimer ... Chunkhead ... Twit ... Barney ... Blatherbutt ... Wasted Space ... Wimpy ... Blimpy ... Dippy ... Melvin ... Chump ... Clabbertrap ... Bilge-bottom ... Addle-ass ...

U.S. DECLINE INEVITABLE? This November: The pessimist vs. the cynical pessimist This week, decline is on my brain. Speciﬁcally, the decline of America. “There’s not a country on Earth that wouldn’t gladly trade places with the United States of America,” President Barack Obama said, denying Republican assertions that the country is in decline. Clearly, we believe our country is in decline—polls show that Americans think the next generation will live worse than we do. Pessimism about the future is reﬂected in a 2011 survey in which 57 percent of the public identiﬁed the United States as the world’s most powerful nation but just 19 percent thought we’ll still be No. 1 twenty years from now. Now The New York Times reports that life expectancy for white people without a highschool degree fell between 1990 and 2007. “We’re used to looking at groups and complaining that their mortality rates haven’t improved fast enough, but to actually go backward is deeply troubling,” the newspaper quoted John G. Haaga, head of the Population and Social Processes Branch of the National Institute on Aging. Even the two major presidential candidates seem to think that the United States doesn’t have much of a future. During his 60 Minutes interview, Obama was asked what his big idea was for his next term. Interviewer Steve Kroft mentioned the Marshall Plan and sending a man to the moon as examples of big ideas. “I think there’s no bigger purpose right now than making sure that if people work hard in this country, they can get ahead,” replied Obama. “That’s the central American idea. That’s how we sent a man to the moon.

Because there was an economy that worked for everybody and that allowed us to do that. I think what Americans properly are focused on right now are just the bread-and-butter basics of making sure our economy works for working people.” A nonsensical answer. Though depressing, Obama’s pessimism is dwarfed by Mitt Romney’s. Romney’s 2011 tax returns reveal that not only did he bet against the value of the American dollar, he received a quarter of his income from investments in other countries. Romney is literally betting millions that the U.S. economy will head south. That foreign equities will outperform U.S. stocks. He even bought shares in the Chinese state oil company, which has contracts with Iran. He’s worse than a hypocrite. He’s an economic traitor. But the United States has a future. Who will lead us into that future? Obama has the edge in the polls, partly because he presents a less somber vision. The United States is rich. The problem is that our wealth has become so unevenly distributed that there is no longer enough consumer demand to support the population. If we began focusing on the problems of poverty, unemployment and underemployment, as well as rising income and wealth inequality and then ﬁx them, we’ll be OK. I don’t think we’ll be OK. We don’t have to be in decline. Some liberal elites, like Fed chairman Ben Bernanke and investor Warren Buffett, understand the need to redistribute wealth. They’re one side of a split in the ruling classes. Unfortunately for the system and for many Americans, they’re losing the argument to greedpigs like Romney.

annual music fest Saturday, Oct. 6. While organizers remain tight-lipped about the location, they are expecting neo-Nazis and Klan sympathizers from across the globe to descend on the Boise area to attend Ham-
merfest 2012. And that’s enough to get the attention of Boise Police.
One year ago, when Greg Morris, director of CATCH, an acronym for Charitable Assistance for Community’s Homeless, was asked to resign from the highly successful City of Boise program, no one would say anything on the record. “I really can’t talk about it,” said Adam Park, Mayor Dave Bieter’s communications director in November 2011. “It’s related to a personnel action,” said Bruce Chatterton, then-planning and development director for the city. But for the ﬁve years prior, the city couldn’t say enough about CATCH. The program established its own ofﬁce on River Street, produced radio and television public service announcements, and trumpeted regional and national awards for the innovative program, which provides long-term housing to homeless families, boasting an 85 percent to 90 percent success rate. But now, an organization calling itself CATCH Inc. is about to swing open the doors of a new headquarters on Americana Boulevard, promising to serve as many as 20 homeless families in Ada and Canyon counties at any given time. However both programs—the City of Boise’s CATCH and the nonproﬁt CATCH Inc.—are both serving the same population with only nuanced differences. “I don’t know if there is a difference. Come to think of it, there isn’t a difference,” said CATCH Inc. board member Ross Mason. “CATCH Inc. does what CATCH always did. It helps the homeless. The fact that we have an ‘Inc.’ at the end of our name is for a nonproﬁt designation and nothing more.” City ofﬁcials said Mason was right, to a point. “Yes, the services are very similar, but to say they’re the same program isn’t correct,” said Park. “We have different staff, and we’re serving different families. But we’re both doing similar work.” Mason was quick to add that much of last year’s drama,which played out behind closed doors between CATCH and CATCH WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M

Inc., was what he called “behind-the-scenes minutia.” In addition to being a board member for CATCH Inc., Mason is also regional director of Southwest Idaho’s 10 counties for the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. And when Morris was ready to help create CATCH Inc. to include services to the homeless beyond Boise’s borders, Mason said his department couldn’t have been happier. “Dick Armstrong”—director of Idaho Department of Health and Welfare—“loves this program,” said Mason. “When I asked his administrative assistant if he would speak at our grand opening”—on Thursday, Oct. 4—“she said ‘yes’ without even looking at his schedule.” And as for plans for expansion, CATCH Inc. has already opened the doors for a Canyon County ofﬁce with additional satellite locations in the pipeline. “We would love to have CATCH Inc. statewide,” said Mason. “Twin Falls is the next logical place, and now it’s on the horizon.” But ﬁrst, Morris said it was important to make CATCH Inc. a nonproﬁt. “Let’s be honest, donors prefer to give to a 501(c)3,” said Morris. “We needed to augment, and we needed to be able to write grants. We tried being a nonproﬁt while still operating as a city program for a year, but we got to a place ….” Morris paused. “We got to a place where it became uncomfortable.” But Morris quickly smiled. “And here we are,” he said pointing to a 4,000-square-foot warehouse recently refurbished into ofﬁce space for counseling adults while children have fun in a nearby play room. The building also includes ample storage space for furniture and supplies, which families will be able to access when they’re ready for a fresh start. But the City of Boise is far from clos-
ing the doors of its own CATCH program. In fact, city ofﬁcials told Boise Weekly that $165,000 in general funds are earmarked for Fiscal Year 2013 to fund the city’s CATCH, with plans to continue accepting homeless families into the program for the foreseeable future. “We’re continuing to accept applications. As a matter of fact, we’re placing a seventh family into our program this coming week,” said Beth Geagan, who was brought on board by the city in April to run its CATCH program. “We’re going to manage this as effectively and efﬁciently as possible and serve as many families as we can.” Long before Geagan took over Boise’s CATCH program, Beck Fenton worked as a case manager for CATCH, assisting more than 80 homeless families. But she has since been recruited by Morris to leave the city and join his new team at CATCH Inc. “I have the best job in the world,” said Fenton, who is fond of handing out business cards that entitle the receiver to a free hug. “When I meet the families, they’re already in a shelter. I help them ﬁnd housing and help them get a job or, quite often, a better job.” Fenton said it is a common misconception that all homeless adults are unemployed. “Many of them have jobs, but they still have countless obstacles keeping them from getting housing,” she said. “When they’re in a survival situation, they don’t want to acknowledge any of the pressures. So I teach them to take the blinders off.” Morris said the program’s success rate is tangible. “We consider any family that can pay its own rent after six months in our program a success,” said Morris. “We consistently experience an 85 to 90 percent success rate.” 9 In the shadow of what Morris called “the great recession,” he said
messages,” said Sgt. Jeff Basterrechea of Boise Police Depar tment’s Gang Intelligence Unit. “A lot of times, you already have violence in the concer ts and then you have people come on board with alcohol or drugs.” Hammerfest, which has seen previous incarnations in Australia, Italy and Wales, is promoted by Dallas-based Hammerskin Nation. According to the Anti-Defamation League, Hammerskin Nation “is the most violent and best organized neo-Nazi skinhead group in the United States.” “I don’t even know how many people to expect,” Basterrechea told Citydesk. “I don’t know why they’re having it here, to be honest.” Hammerskin members often congregate via a website called Crew38, with details about the concert location and lodging accommodations available only to vetted members. On that site, one member wrote that people who were interested in attending the show should message “one of the Idaho brothers,” saying, “There’s no way anyone we don’t already know is gettin in.” Law enforcement can’t stop the concert unless there’s violence, disturbing the peace or other violations. “I would have parents be very aware. This is not going to be your typical heavy metal concert,” said Basterrechea. “It’s going to have a message and it’s probably a message about trying to recruit you into the skinhead movement.” —Andrew Crisp

the need has never been greater. “We’ve seen a lot of ﬁrst-time 7 homeless families that have never been on any support system before,” he said. Bruce MacMahon, director of accounting for Idaho Power and board president of CATCH Inc., said the new program, operating separate ofﬁces in Ada and Canyon counties, has secured solid donations and grants to grow the program further. “The annual size of our organization for 2013 will be close to $600,000,” he said. “That should be enough for us to serve as many as 20 families in Ada and Canyon counties at any given time.” But Teresa McLeod, assistant to Mayor Dave Bieter who works extensively on the city’s homeless initiatives, was more cautious about CATCH Inc.’s potential growth. “If they can scale up to that degree, that’s wonderful. But that’s doesn’t prove ﬁnancial sustainability,” said McLeod. “For instance, we know that CATCH Inc. has a mortgage now that they didn’t have previously.” McLeod said the City of Boise had no plans to scale back CATCH, simply because there is a CATCH Inc. “Until we’re conﬁdent that there is one or more nonproﬁts with the self-sufﬁciency to operate this program, we’ll continue to steward it under the city banner,” said McLeod. “Our biggest concern would be to pass this off to an organization that maybe has the heart to serve these families but doesn’t have the ﬁnancial track record to sustain the program in the long run.” But CATCH Inc.’s immediate ﬁnancial outlook looks pretty strong, according to Mason, who told BW that state and federal dollars, through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, will soon begin a direct pipeline of cash into the nonproﬁt. “I can’t stress enough how important CATCH Inc. is to the Department of Health and Welfare,” said Mason. “And the departWWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
ment reﬂects that by providing the TANF funding. This is money to be used to help families help themselves, and this program ﬁts that idea to a ‘T.’ It supports them temporarily until they get back on their feet.” Boise City Council Member TJ Thomson looks at the city’s version of CATCH as something that won’t be around forever. “I see [the current situation with two programs] as a transition and I think, not too far from now, there will just be CATCH Inc.,” said Thomson. “I think the reason that CATCH needs to stay in the city’s budget is that we’re currently serving [six] families through the program, and we don’t want to put them out in the cold. I really don’t foresee the city keeping CATCH.” In addition to $165,000 in taxpayer dollars for the city’s CATCH, Thomson pointed to more than $1 million inside the city’s FY 2013 budget supporting homeless services, ranging from $225,715 in community block grant programs for organizations such as Terry Reilly Health Services and the Women’s and Children’s Alliance to $240,000 for Allumbaugh House, a detox and mental health provider. “We can’t take the weakest of our population and push them down,” said Thomson. “This isn’t a statutory requirement; addressing homelessness is a moral obligation of city government.” Thomson said the recent incarnation of CATCH Inc. made perfect sense. “They wanted to take it to a nonproﬁt level with all good intentions,” said Thomson. “The mission is exactly the same.” And while the city’s CATCH may indeed share a similar mission with CATCH Inc. more than a few city hall ofﬁcials will be keeping a close eye on the new entity with a familiar name. “We’re always thrilled to see a nonproﬁt rise in the community to provide a housingﬁrst model that we’ve been using for some time,” said Park. “We wish them the best and hope that they’re successful. We know the need is out there.”

reels MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL For those who have the attention span of a ﬁrst-grader and think that 140 characters is still too much per tweet, a feature-length ﬁlm is probably pure torture. To combat your cinematic attention deﬁcit, check out the Manhattan Short Film Festival (emphasis on the short). The Flicks will once again host the festival Thursday, Oct. 4. While Boise has welcomed this event for more than ﬁve years, the festival has been taking place since 1998. What began as a sort of guerilla-style festival, with televisions attached to a truck projecting 16 short ﬁlms in the middle of New York City, has grown into a worldwide event. Each year, a collection of 10 short ﬁlms submitted from around the world are shown across the globe, uniting hundreds of thousands of people in the name of art and ﬁlm. Each Flicks attendee will be given a ballot to vote for which ﬁlm he/she loves the most (or in the case of pseudo ﬁlm critics, hate the least), and votes will be tallied worldwide. The victor will be announced Sunday, Oct. 7. If the allure of independent ﬁlms isn’t enough to get you there, remember that The Flicks has a full range of beer and wine, and everything is better with a drink in your hand. Visit manhattanshort.com for more info about the ﬁlms and a trailer of the 2012 festival. 7 p.m; $9, $7 students and ages 65 and older. The Flicks, 646 Fulton St., 208-342-4222, theﬂicksboise.com.
THURSDAY OCT. 4 talk DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES A mind may be a terrible thing to waste, but trying to understand the way it works can cause you to waste a ton of time. Unless you’re Steven Pinker. The experimental psychologist, Harvard professor
and contributor to The New York Times, Time and The New Republic has published a slew of books that investigate language, the mind and human nature. Pinker will speak about his research and latest book, The Better Angles of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined, at the Morrison Center Thursday, Oct. 4, at 7 p.m. Pinker’s visit is part of the Distinguished Lecture Series, hosted by Boise State. The series occurs twice each year and aims to be

intellectually stimulating and invite discussion. “Dr. Pinker offers a provocative thesis about the decline of violence in modern history,” said Boise State Honors College director Andrew Finstuen. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and talk with Pinker after his lecture. 7 p.m., FREE. Morrison Center, 2201 W. Cesar Chavez Lane, 208-426-1609, go.boisestate.edu/distinguishedlectures.
Zombies and ghouls will haunt Crooked Fence Brewing Company when the Artist Sweatshop returns Friday, Oct. 5, for the ghastly Halloween edition. “It should be a lot of blood and guts,” said artist and event organizer Kelly Knopp. Crooked Fence plans to kidnap 11 local artists, chain them to desks at its Garden City location and force them to churn out sketches. With sweaty brows and ﬁngers stained with ink, a group of artists poured over paper at Crooked Fence Brewing in April during the inaugural Artist Sweatshop, while art fans jockeyed to snap up their prints. OK, so they aren’t exactly kidnapped, but the Artist Sweatshop does put artists in a tough situation—they’re asked to pen sketches on the factory ﬂoor while an eager audience watches. April’s attendees sipped beer, ogled fast-moving pens and pencils, and waited to nab original work from artists such as Noble Hardesty and Julia Green. As soon as the artists ﬁnish their sketches, they hang them from a clothesline running above their heads. The ﬁrst person to fork over cash is ruled the victor of that artistic spoil. Prices range from $5-$10, cash only, with 100 percent of the proﬁts given to the hard-working artists. The sweatshop’s second iteration will feature Hardesty, Knopp, Cale Cathey, Conrad Garner, Cody Rutty, Steve Willhite, Pickle, Grant Olsen, Jason Large, Danielle Demaray and James McKain. The event is only for the legal-to-drink set. P. Ditty’s Wrap Wagon will serve wraps out front of the brewery while Crooked Fence pours the new Grim Reaper Imperial Black IPA inside. 6:30-10 p.m., FREE admission. Crooked Fence Brewing Co., 5242 Chinden Blvd., Garden City, crookedfencebrewing.com.

Oh, Rocky, you’re back at Stage Coach Theater.
FRIDAY-SATURDAY OCT. 5-6 fun theater THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW A night at the theater would typically rule out water guns, ﬂashlights and strange interactive dances. But the Rocky Horror Show is anything but typical. Perhaps it’s that atypicality that has allowed it to retain a cult following for more than 40 years. Or maybe it’s just that people really like aliens, sweet transvestites and song titles that rhyme with Janet. But whatever the cause of Rocky Horror’s success, it’s evident that Boise loves it just as much as the rest of the world. Stage Coach Theater will once again stage the fantastically absurd work of Richard O’Brien beginning Friday, Oct. 5. The 15-performance run will continue through Wednesday, Oct. 31, with midnight performances on Saturdays, Oct. 20, and Oct. 27. Dan Allen, Carly Wasserstein, Todd Ryan King, Shannon E. Gans, Jordan Danger Peterson, Joseph Wright, Russell Smith Jr., Eugenia Horne, Kierra Hansen, Coralee Sharp, Melanie Falls, Hailey Jorday and Erin Fahey will bring the story of a newlywed couple’s strange adventure to the Boise stage alongside Minerva Jayne, who will once again play mad genius Dr. Frankenfurter. Rocky Horror virgins can expect an exceptionally interactive theater experience, with veterans singing along and shouting often-outlandish phrases. Purchase a kit of Rocky Horror accessories for $5, and enjoy doing the sorts of things you were never allowed to do during childhood—like throwing toilet paper, shooting water guns indoors and making lots of noise. Reservations can be made up to one hour before show time by calling Stage Coach’s reservation line. A discount is available for students and military personnel with a valid ID for Thursday performances. Fridays-Saturdays, Oct. 5-Oct. 27, 8:15 p.m.; Thursdays, Oct. 11-25, and Wednesday, Oct. 31, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Oct. 20, and Oct. 27, midnight; $20. Stage Coach Theatre, 4802 W.

Stretch your legs, along with your dog’s legs, in support of Idaho Humane Society at See Spot Walk.
SATURDAY OCT. 6 bark SEE SPOT WALK Most individuals can be divided into two categories—dog people and cat people. Not to choose sides, but we’re pretty sure there’s a reason that nobody refers to cats as man’s best friend, unless of course, that man happens to enjoy passive-aggressive felines who occasionally claw your face in the middle of the night for no damn reason. So, for everyone aside from that man, be sure to bring your four-legged friend to the 20th annual celebration of See Spot Walk Saturday, Oct. 6. This one-mile stroll through Julia Davis Park begins promptly at 10 a.m., when children, adults, family, friends, co-workers and teams are encouraged to bring their pups to walk in support of Idaho Humane Society’s homeless pet shelter. Part of each registration fee directly beneﬁts the Idaho Humane Society, but if that isn’t enough puppy love for you, participants can make extra donations online as well, and invite friends and family to make pledges in their name. Basic registration is $20 for adults, $15 for children and FREE for four-legged friends. Participants will receive one T-shirt and a dog bandana. Even if you’re missing the most important part of the walk (your dog), you can still participate, and Idaho Humane Society has a ﬁnite number of shelter dogs that you can register to walk with. After the walk, dogs and their people can enjoy games and contests, cruise by microchip and vaccination booths, and meet some adorable canines up for adoption. 9 a.m., walk begins at 10 a.m. $20 adults, $15 children. Julia Davis Park Bandshell, 700 S. Capitol Blvd., 208-3872760, idahohumanesociety.org.
Those blasting down Chinden Boulevard may have found themselves rubbernecking at a marquee board so wacky, so preposterous, that they concluded they didn’t read it properly. But it’s no mirage: All the Buzz Coffee does, in fact, serve piping hot bacon mochas. $2.95 for 12 oz.-$5.45 for 32 oz. Mary Lynn Dehner ALL THE BUZZ didn’t set out to merge 2941 Chinden Blvd., meat and mocha. People Garden City kept coming through the 208-342-7596 drive-thru of her family owned kiosk (formerly Hotties Mochas and More) and requesting bacon in their morning Joe. But it wasn’t until she and her son saw a piece on the Food Channel about a bacon milkshake that she took the request seriously, realizing that it must be some sort of ﬂavoring syrup. The bacon syrup, unavailable locally, had to be specially ordered from Torani. It isn’t like drinking from a cup of drippings, though. It’s far closer to a traditional mocha than one would believe. Instead of a strong meaty ﬂavor, it has a rich mapley sweetness, with hints of cured bacon mixed in with the existing richness of a chocolatey mocha. It’s certainly not for the diabetic set, but if there’s a better meat-themed coffee beverage available on the side of the road in Garden City, we don’t know about it. —Josh Gross

NOISE/CD REVIEW THE WELL SUITED, THE STORY OF JAMES DOUGLAS In an age of easy access to digital recording and instant Internet distribution to a single-driven market, spending two years writing and recording six songs and releasing them as a hard-copy album seems old-fashioned. But that’s what Boise band The Well Suited did for its debut EP, The Story of James Douglas. But it isn’t just the band’s recording style that is wistfully retro. The EP’s sound tosses out the simple verse-chorus structure to employ a more complex lyrical and auditory story that owes largely to ’70s prog-rock. The album uses big rock riffs, layers of analog synthesizers, sprawling arrangements and fantastical lyrics to explore the concept of love in the time of a robot apocalypse. The third track, “I’m Your Machine,” is the closest thing the album has to a single, with a catchy singalong section and a driving beat. The rest of the EP moves like a single rolling composition with elements of classic rock stalwarts like Rick Wakeman and Pink Floyd. And while it lacks some of the masterful recording ﬁdelity of an album like Dark Side of the Moon, The Story of James Douglas is still well composed, complex, unpredictable, moody, poppy and occasionally frustrating. The Story of James Douglas isn’t the sort of thing you’ll belt out while driving down the freeway, but there’s a decent chance that if you hit play right as the lion roars in The Wizard of Oz, you might ﬁnd it sheds a very different light on the Tin Man. —Josh Gross WWW.

NOISE/CD REVIEW WALKING PAPERS, WALKING PAPERS The seductive neo-blues of Seattle’s The Missionary Position is already one the most compelling sounds in the Northwest. But a dose of star power rarely hurts, and that’s just what the band’s sound gets with Walking Papers, a new collaboration between The Missionary Position’s singer and guitarist Jefferson Angell, Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees and Guns ’n’ Roses alum Duff McKagan. The band’s debut self-titled album, released Oct. 2, also features Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready. Because of the distinctiveness of Angell’s richly toned blues moan and guitar work, much of the album follows in the vein of the two existing Missionary Position albums, especially on early tracks like “Your Secret’s Safe with Me” and “Red Envelopes.” Walking Papers really sets itself apart when it puts aside the fuzz guitar and explores blues territory more in the vein of Tom Waits than the proto-grunge of John Lee Hooker. “A Place Like This” has a lagging Latin beat with sparse tremolo guitar and ﬂourishes of trumpet. It apes the seduction Angell’s work is known for but with a restrained, evil jazz sound like a smooth “Jockey Full of Bourbon”-era Tom Waits. It is followed by “Independence Day,” a driving tune with watery guitar textures layered over driving, come-hither fuzz riffs. On the whole, Walking Papers’ debut album is cleanly split between two sounds: big blues rock riffs and spooky vocals, and more experimental tracks. Both are solid work, but listeners may ﬁnd themselves skipping back and forth between the sound they prefer. —Josh Gross WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M

RESIDENT GOOD Examining the economic impact of the 8th Street Marketplace AIR Program TARA MORGAN The idea was just crazy enough to work: Take two revamped BODO buildings struggling to ﬁnd tenants in the recession, ﬁll the empty ofﬁce spaces with a rotating lineup of artists, then watch as the buildings attract the attention of other, paying creative types. “When the program started, the 8th Street Marketplace had just been renovated but there was an incredible amount of empty spaces,” explained Karen Bubb, public arts manager at the Boise City Department of Arts and History. “And over the three years that we’ve been doing this program, that has really changed; they have been renting more and more spaces.” Some creative tenants who have moved into the 8th Street Marketplace buildings since the start of the AIR program in 2009 include architecture ﬁrms like HZ Studio and Think Architecture, Red Sky Public Relations, Renee Vaughn Design Group and NﬁniT Gallery. “Every time I mention it when I’m showing spaces, ‘Oh, the landlord is very benevolent to the arts, he loves the arts and we have this program,’ everyone’s like, ‘Oh, that’s so cool,’” said Debbie Smith, 8th Street Marketplace property manager. But in addition to drawing potential tenants to wander through the BODO buildings every month during First Thursday, the AIR program also provides a launching pad for new artists. The residencies—which take place in spaces sprinkled throughout the Mercantile and Northrup buildings and in Renewal Underground—used to be three months long, but have since been extended to six. “It continues to be a space where artists can gain visibility,” said Bubb. “We’ve had some artists who have applied repeatedly until they’ve been selected and others who are brand new to the program—brand new to the area—so I feel like it’s a place that continues to be a welcoming beacon as an opportunity for artists.” One of those new-to-Boise artists is Abby Christensen, a mixed-media conceptual visual artist who recently graduated from Trinity Christian College in Chicago. Christensen will occupy a room in the Northrup Building WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
starting First Thursday, Oct. 4, and running through March 2013. “Her work samples were really varied from what looked like a stack of books on a shelf to something that looked like an outline of a layer to library indexes,” explained Bubb. “So she does small installations that make you think about human presence.” Christensen plans to continue exploring the idea of the index in her AIR space. “I’m excited to just dive in and have a space to work. … Coming from Chicago, I didn’t have a studio there so I was working out of my home so that’s going to be very exciting and it will allow me to expand my project, which I think will be nice in a new area to be able to work bigger and work more,” she said. Mixed media sculptor and performance artist Tyler James Bush (Northrup Building) is also amped to have more room. “The biggest pain in the butt as an artist is always having to re-put everything away and then drag it out the next day,” said Bush. “So the cool thing about this is, all I have to do is lock the door, and then when I come back the next day, I can pick up right where I left off.” On First Thursday, Oct. 4, Bush will set up a retrospective of his Home on the Strange series, which included a live performance art installation of poker playing deer ladies at Modern Art in 2011 and an exhibit at the Eagle Performing Arts Center. From there, he will move on to new projects, which will include screen-printing, stop motion animation and 3D video projection mapping. “I’m going to be doing some celebrity silk screening, like Andy Warhol inspired; that will be kind of the next phase,” said Bush. Other new AIR artists include mixed media visual artist Mary Lantz (Mercantile), who creates woven collages from her cut up watercolor paintings; Pam Demo, also a collage artist, who dyes her own paper and assembles it into layered landscapes (Northrup); and ﬁne arts digital printmaker Tuong Anh Ens (Renewal). But artists and business owners aren’t the only ones invested in the AIR program. Boise State’s recently created Department of Com-
munity and Regional Planning is using the program as a lens through which to examine arts economic development in Boise. “What we’re basically asking with the project that my students are doing is, has it been an effective downtown economic development tool? And if it can be strengthened or improved, then how do we go about doing that in an efﬁcient and sustainable manner?” explained Amanda Johnson, Boise State assistant professor. The class, State, Regional and Community Economic Development, has three masters students seeking to quantify the impact the program has had on the community as part of a larger arts ecology within Boise and the region. “It’s really this quest to ﬁgure out how the AIR program has shaped creative placemaking and development in the core while also trying to ﬁgure out how local artists make a living as creative professionals, particularly in a time when innovative economies are such a high priority,” said Johnson. “They’ll also be analyzing commercial and nonproﬁt arts industries and occupation in the city as a whole,” she added. “We’ll also be interviewing the developers that were really visionary in participating and leading this program to get a sense of what their experiences were. And all of this is in partnership with the city.” At this point, the Arts and History department only provides help with administrative support and artist selection for the 8th Street AIR program, but department ofﬁcials eventually hope to launch a similar program of their own. “We don’t provide any funding for this program, but we’re looking in the future—are there opportunities for us to have spaces that the city invests in as an artists in residence space?” Bubb said. “But to make those kinds of policy and ﬁnancial shifts, we have to have more data, more information about the economic impact of this program.” And that’s exactly what they’ll have as Boise State’s fall semester draws to a close.

PAWS AND AN ELEPHANT SCHNOZ As the warmth of summer wanes, the political arena is heating up. And on First Thursday, Oct. 4, sculptor Jim Budde will get metaphorically steamed when he reveals his new political teapot series, Underground Politics, which features busts of politicos like Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and President Barack Obama. “I always fall back on these teapots that are based on that Mesoamerican or Pre-Columbian pottery that combine human and animal forms,” said Budde. However, his pottery bears the faces of wild political animals. One teapot features Gingrich with a protruding elephant’s snout and a dunce cap, another depicts Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter noseto-nose with fellow cowboy Ronald Reagan and a pair of horses. With newer pieces focusing on the 2012 election, Budde said it’s exciting to add commentary to history. “A few years from now, I want people to be able to look at the Obama or Romney pieces and see the reﬂection of what was happening at a political time,” said Budde. Underground Politics will also include a series of painted cardboard signs with phrases like “Will Work for Friends” and quotes from the candidates. The show will be the last in the former Basement Gallery space. Owners Mike and Jane Brumﬁeld have since relocated to the former Hyde Park Gallery space, which reopened Sept. 22. Some of Budde’s other work is on display there. For more First Thursday politics, the Fettucine Forum returns at 5 p.m. at the Rose Room, led by Idaho Public Television’s Greg Hahn. He’ll present audio, video and images on the topic The Left, The Right: Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party. Over at Mr. Peabody’s Optical Shoppe, artist Alexa Rose Howell, formerly of Gallery Alexa Rose, will debut a series starring a less political animal: a French bulldog named Maurice. “French bulldogs were bred to be the dogs of royalty,” said Howell. “They have no purpose other than to be cute and charming. And they’re stubborn and very self-aware that they’re cute.” Her daughter’s puppy hammed it up for Howell for the series, Spectacular Dogs. She painted him and other pooches in black-and-white watercolor and colored pencil, including mixed media and other watercolor studies. Proceeds beneﬁt the Idaho Humane Society. And while we’re at it, Boise Weekly has its own cause to support this First Thursday. Each week, BW features the work of a local artist on the cover. The originals are then auctioned off to beneﬁt our Cover Auction Grant, which supports local artists and organizations. During First Thursday, the Idaho State Historical Museum will boast a gallery of the pieces that have graced our cover from Oct. 2011-Sept. 2012.

PERPETUAL BLOOM A fall breeze blows Beach House back to Boise CHRIS PARKER
For someone who makes such minimalist and ethereal music, Beach House singerkeyboardist Victoria Legrand sure can be voluminous. Legrand and Alex Scally craft dreamy, slow-moving songs with emotional resonance that outstrips the spare details. It can be as simple as Legrand murmuring, “Other people want to keep in touch / Something happens and it’s not enough” over crashing waves of keyboard melancholia. Legrand’s sultry coo and the slowly undulating textures conspire for a Rorschach effect, accommodating whatever you might project onto it. “It can be a speciﬁc feeling and a speciﬁc story, but it’s all in the way you do it,” said Legrand. “The way that you arrange it can Dream pop duo Beach House will take your ears on a vacation at the Egyptian Theatre. be abstract or minimalistic.

Shake your ﬁbulas this week in Boise.
BONE DANCES AND BURIAL GROUNDS What’s that you say, Boise? You like it heavy. Well you’re in luck, ’cause Boise’s Bone Dance is dropping a new album approximately as heavy as the collective balls of Seal Team Six this week. The self-titled LP on Melotov Records has been garnering killer advance reviews across the Internet and advance tracks have been featured on Alternative Press and CVLT Nation, which called it “sonic bricks coated in aggression.” All you non-advance-copy-holding netizens can get your hot little hands on a copy of Bone Dance’s album this weekend, at the album release show at Red Room Saturday, Oct. 6. Trite, Black Bolt Gernika, and Blackcloud—no strangers to the loud stuff—will open. The show starts at 9 p.m. and costs $5. After that, the lads will head out on a 24-date East Coast tour that will include a gig at the CMJ festival in New York and The Fest in Gainesville, Fla. Or, you can let the rest of your body dance along with your bones at all kinds of shows this week. The surf-tinged psych rock of Wooden Indian Burial Ground at The Crux might be a good place to start, provided you have the proper footwear. Without a solid set of polished white go-go boots, it is entirely possible you could pull a whatzit from your watusi and miss all the fuzzy, reverby, caterwauling goodness. That show starts at 10 p.m. and costs $5, unless you have a ticket from the Beach House show earlier that night at The Egyptian (see Noise, this page) and then it’s FREE. Lionsweb and Hot Lava will open. Another good place to get your dance on is Maus Haus at Neurolux Wednesday, Oct. 3, which will be rocking all the dreamy lo-ﬁ synthesizers you can shake a stick at, unless you dislike shaking sticks at dreamy lo-ﬁ synthesizers. The Dirty Moogs will open, and the show starts at 7 p.m. for $5. And ﬁnally, you can get your ’90s nostalgia on at The Knitting Factory this week with one of only a handful of special reunion shows from reunited roots-rockers Calobo. The Portland, Ore., band hasn’t played since the dawn of the millennium, while its members were busy doing things like being in The Decemberists, but it will be hitting Boise as part of a three-show reunion tour. That show goes down Thursday, Oct. 4, at 8:30 p.m. and costs $16-$35. —Josh Gross

STEVE VAI, OCT. 3, KNITTING FACTORY There are guitar gods and then there are people so convincing in the role that they are cast to play guitar gods on ﬁlm. Steve Vai is both. He has backed Frank Zappa and David Lee Roth, has his own custom model electric and acoustic guitars and pedals, and is an alumnus of the guitar virtuoso G3 tour organized by his old teacher, Joe Satriani. But if instrumental shred metal doesn’t mean much to you, you still probably know Vai’s work from ﬁlm. In the 1986 ﬁlm Crossroads, Vai was cast as Jack Butler, the supernaturally talented devil who is challenged in a guitar showdown to win back an old bluesman’s soul. The back-andforth between Vai and The Karate Kid’s Ralph Macchio one of the greatest climaxes in music-themed cinema. And if you haven’t seen that—a thousand pities on you—Vai is also the man behind the wicked air guitar licks in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. —Josh Gross With Beverly McClellan. 8 p.m. $28-$65.

HOSPITALITY, OCT. 7, RED ROOM Life in New York City serves as inspiration for songwriter Amber Papini, vocalist and guitar-wielding frontwoman of Brooklyn, N.Y., indie-pop quartet Hospitality. Her lyrics tell the story of various NYC characters, like a former co-worker in “Betty Wang,” to whom Papini sings: “If you leave New York / I don’t care / I’ll follow you back to Tokyo.” Papini’s whispered odes unfold like a poem for a tender lover. But Hospitality’s tracks also meander down punky back alleys, most memorably on the catchy “Friends of Friends,” where Papini sing-shouts the song’s refrain with spunk. However, Hospitality’s slower songs, like the mid-album “Sleepover,” show more soul as Papini sings “Beige chiffon, silk and roses / Lock the door, I’ll take your coat.” Hospitality released its ﬁrst self-titled LP earlier this year. The band will spread out the silk sheets for Boise Sunday, Oct. 7. —Andrew Crisp

Argo recounts the most incredible rescue you’ve never heard of GEORGE PRENTICE
MISS REPRESENTATION IS A BLISTERING, BIPARTISAN LOOK AT MEDIA PORTRAYALS OF WOMEN IN POWER Ask toddlers if they would like to be president and most say, “Yes.” Ask them again 10 years later and researchers say a larger group of boys continue to say, “Yes” while more girls say, “No.” Dozens of studies routinely point to a gender gap in positions of power and inﬂuence in America. While women represent 51 percent of the U.S. population, a mere 17 percent of the U.S. Congress is female. Simply put, you can’t be what you can’t see.

DANGERS OF THE SEASON
The best video games of 2012 may be yet to come: (left to right) Assasin’s Creed, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Starcraft II and Halo 4.
WORTH THE WAIT In video games, the best may be yet to come MICHAEL LAFFERTY So far 2012 has had some pretty impressive video game releases. We have great sequels and new franchises. Among the games topping the sales lists have been Diablo III, Mass Effect 3, UFC Undisputed 3, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Street Fighter X Tekken and SSX. There’s deﬁnitely a little something for every taste, from the ﬁghter fanatic to the sports fan and role-playing fantasy enthusiasts. And don’t forget Borderlands 2, which has been ﬂying off the shelves, and Guild Wars 2, which brings back the lands of Tyria but with new races and updated graphics. All in all, it’s been a pretty solid year, but the best video game releases may be yet to come. Let’s run down some of the more anticipated games left to release in 2012. HALO 4: Set for a Tuesday, Nov. 6, release, this 360-degree ﬁrst-person shooter game takes place almost ﬁve years after the events of Halo 3. Master Chief is back, and this has been touted as the beginning of a new sci-ﬁ franchise. The developers have also added to the multiplayer element, introducing the Halo Inﬁnity Multiplayer, named for the starship that acts as a hub for the multiplayer careers of created characters. ASSASSIN’S CREED III: This multiplatform release is slated to hit retailers Tuesday, Oct. 30. The timeline progression for the ﬂashbacks to the master assassin character, and the conﬂict between the assassins and templars, hits the American Revolution and introduces an assassin of mixed heritage. RESIDENT EVIL 6: Coming very soon to a 360, PC or PS3 near you, this Oct. 2 release visits Raccoon City 10 years after the last release. The president of the United States is hit with a bioterrorist attack and transformed into … well, if you know the series, you get an inkling of what is to follow. For the ﬁrst time in the series, Leon Kennedy and Chris Redﬁeld come face-to-face to confront the terror in what is certain to be yet another survival horror classic. CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS II: You gotta love November because that usually means a CoD release. Black Ops II, on the Wii U, 360, PC and PS3, will hit store shelves Tuesday, Nov. 13. The game’s setting is 2025, and WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
for multiplayers, that means newly imagined weapons for multiplayer action. And yes, there will be zombies in multiplayer, according to the latest press releases. The developer this time is Treyarch. DISHONORED: For the PC, PS3 and 360, this is a new title from Arkane Studios with Bethesda set as the publisher. The setting is steampunk with arcane forces ﬂittering about and is a ﬁrst-person action game in which the central character, once a personal guard for the empress, is framed for murder and becomes an infamous assassin. The release date is Tuesday, Oct. 9. NEW SUPER MARIO BROTHERS: Nintendo has a new system, the Wii U, and what would a new system be without a Mario Brothers game to play on it? This is a side-scrolling adventure and this game allows your Mii character to step into the world and adventure alongside Mario and Luigi. Expect this title to launch around mid-November. MEDAL OF HONOR WARFIGHTER: There are a lot of MOH fans out there, and they are all likely eager to get their mitts on Warfighter. The game follows Tier 1 Operators on missions inspired by real life in real-world settings. Beta testing for the 360 version begins in early October and the game is slated for release Tuesday, Oct. 23, and will be available on the 360, PC and PS3 platforms.
FAR CRY 3: The nice thing about Far Cry 3 is that it gives players the freedom to pick their battles, choose their allies and decide whom to ﬁght and how to ﬁght those enemies. This is not a true sandbox, because there are objectives, but it is pretty close within the structure of the game. The game is from Ubisoft, has a release date of Tuesday, Dec. 4, and is slated for the 360, PC and PS3 platforms. STARCRAFT II: HEART OF THE SWARM: Currently in beta testing, this expansion has one of those “to be determined” release dates that drives fans buggy. According to the Blizzard press release: “Each chapter of Starcraft II focuses on a speciﬁc faction of the Starcraft war. By splitting the game, players will access more story content, more characters, and more customization as they explore each side of the conﬂict.” This game will release on PC and Mac.
There are also a wide variety of add-ons and games for every platform and taste, from titles geared for the young to the young at heart. WWE has a release coming out and Pro Evolution Soccer is already in release. That said, though, the end of 2012 has some tasty video game treats that should sit well with gamers transitioning from the warmer days of fall to the chilling, “let’s-just-stay-indoors” weather of winter. Keep an eye out for FireFall, from Red 5. The story has been penned by sci-ﬁ writer Orson Scott Card and the dev team includes four World of Warcraft guys. The game is an online title, inviting players to team up and protect the remnants of Earth against an enemy called The Melding.
Ah fall, when the mornings are crisp, the leaves are tinged with color and the lingering wildﬁres send up billowing clouds of smoke making us gasp for air and pray for a little rain. As much as we’d like it, the change of seasons doesn’t signal an end to wildﬁres burning across the region, and while ﬁre crews are getting a handle on most of the blazes, ofﬁcials are reminding the public to pay attention to area closures and restrictions. Some roads around the Trinity Ridge Fire near Pine and Featherville have been reopened, but ofﬁcials are warning that they may be forced to close them again if people don’t follow the rules. The roads are open to through trafﬁc only, which means no stopping, no passing Go and no collecting ﬁrewood. Fire ofﬁcials have seen people not only getting out of their cars, but riding ATVs, going off road and cutting ﬁrewood. All those activities are prohibited along with hiking, hunting and ﬁshing. Basically, just keep on driving if you’re in one of the closure areas. This is more than just a request—violating the closure order can carry a ﬁne of up to $5,000 for an individual or $10,000 for an organization. Get more info on the exact closure areas online at inciweb.org. And it’s important to be careful even in areas that aren’t on ﬁre this fall. This is the time of year when bears are bulking up for hibernation, and the drought and ﬁres have made it even harder for them to ﬁnd food. That means your food may be even more tempting. Wildlife managers are reminding people to be aware of their actions in bear county, including securing all food and garbage when camping. Never store food or personal hygiene products in your tent—keep them in bearresistant containers or hang them at least 10 feet off the ground and four feet from the nearest tree trunk. Also be sure to secure pet food, don’t leave food bowls outside, and avoid ﬁlling bird feeders. Bears that become habituated to humans are often deemed nuisance bears and relocating them doesn’t work, so they must be put down. It’s best to avoid the problem altogether. If you do have a problem with an aggressive bear, contact the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. —Deanna Darr

NEWS/FOOD FOOD GU Y HAND
Suds-lovers will be on Cloud 9.
ICE BOUQUET WILL OPEN SOON First came news of Kilted Dragon, then Bogus Brewing, and now another nano brewery is bubbling its way onto the scene: Cloud 9 Brewery. Homebrewers Jake and Maggie Lake plan to open a small brewpub downtown that will operate on a four-barrel system. The couple is currently in negotiations with potential spaces but haven’t ﬁnalized anything yet. “We are going to be just selling local pints,” said Lake. Some beers listed on the brewery’s website include a blood-orange witbeer, a salted caramel stout and a honey basil ale. The Lakes plan to crank out food, too: housemade pretzels, salads and burgers. “We’re going to be as locally focused and sustainable and focus on organic as much as possible,” said Lake. For more info, visit cloud9brewery.com. And in other booze news, The Ice Bouquet ofﬁcially announced Sept. 24 that the beleaguered former Blues Bouquet space at 1010 Main St. will soon transform into a high-end nightclub and music venue. “Everything you can think of that Boise doesn’t have, this is what it’s going to have,” said Tazz Weatherly, director of marketing and promotions. Nathan Gorringe, manager of Rockies Diner, is behind the new venture, which plans to open Saturday, Oct. 27, with a Halloween shindig. The revamped space will lean toward upscale but won’t be exclusive. “We don’t wanna just shun away from other audiences, it’s more of a welcoming environment for all,” said Weatherly. The Ice Bouquet will feature an array of different bar options—a $2 drink bar space, a “wining-and-dining” private area and a VIP lounge—to appeal to different crowds. “As soon as you walk in, you feel like you’re in Boise, and then by the time you walk through the back, you think you’re in Vegas,” said Weatherly. Moving from fancy to sloppy, Archie’s Place food truck will host its second annual Sloppy Joe Eating Contest at Payette Brewing Saturday, Oct. 6, from 4-10 p.m. The contest will be split up into two meaty heats: The Mere Mortal category, in which regular joes compete against each other, and the Big Hungry Challenge, in which serious sloppy slurpers face off against last year’s winner, The Big Hungry. Competitors must be 21 or older and must consume two, one-pound sloppy joes. Those who don’t want the bellyache can pay $5 to enter, or $15 for buffet access. For more info, visit archies-place.com.
Idaho is one of the leading growers of teff outside of Ethiopia.
WHAT THE TEFF? An ancient grain takes hold in Southern Idaho JAMES PATRICK KELLY
Wayne Carlson became enamored with the tiny teff grain while living in Ethiopia and working on a project to prevent waterborne diseases in the 1970s. He said that everyone he met in the country ate injera—a spongy, crepe-like bread made from teff ﬂour—with almost every meal. “That’s about the only way they eat it over there, this delicious and nutritious ﬂatbread,” he said. Carlson was the ﬁrst person to introduce the idea of growing teff in the United States, around 1981, and now his Nampa-based Teff Company works with about 30 diversiﬁed farmers in Idaho who sell their grain to the domestic market for human consumption and livestock forage. “I’ve spent a lot of time evangelizing it in the last 30 years. Teff is a fairly unknown crop in this part of the world, but it’s starting to catch on,” said Carlson, whose company sells wholegrain and ﬂour products. In recent years, farmers around the Inland Northwest have become hip to growing ancient grains like teff. Eastern Washington has ﬁelds of swaying emmer farro and spelt. Sorghum has replaced many alfalfa crops in eastern Oregon, and Idaho is one of the leading producers of teff outside of
Canyon and Washington counties. Ethiopia, where grain has Carlson said the Snake River Plain looks been a staple in the eastern similar to the areas in Ethiopia where teff is part of the African contigrown, and both places have nutrient-rich nent since prehistoric times. volcanic soil. One of the biggest challenges Teff, also known as loveghe faced, though, was choosing suitable rass, was ﬁrst planted in Idaho varieties to grow in Idaho’s high desert. in 1986, yet it took a few years for “There are more than 1,600 types of teff. farmers to see the potential of growI wanted to ﬁnd a distinctively different ing the grain along the western swath line that would ﬁt into the shorter growing of the Snake River Plain. “The most essential reason for grow- season here,” Carlson said.

FOOD WINE SIPPER/FOOD
CRU BEAUJOLAIS Cru beaujolais is not beaujolais nouveau—that light and fruity red that’s released the third Thursday of November, just weeks after the harvest. With some 35 million bottles sold, beaujolais nouveau is something of a marketing marvel, accounting for more than one-third of the region’s total production. But nouveau’s very success helps make it one of beaujolais’s worst enemies. Many dismiss nouveau as “barely wine,” and equate it with the region as a whole, making real beaujolais a tougher sell. Made from the same gamay grape, the other beaujolais is still a very fruit-forward wine but deﬁnitely a more serious one. The 10 designated crus located in the foothills of the Beaujolais mountains—typically named for nearby villages—are a step up in quality. The top three wines this week are each from different cru, but each of the three typically produces fuller-bodied wines. 2011 DANIEL BOULAND MORGON, $23 This wine opens with lightly dusty, black cherry and cranberry aromas. The bright berry ﬂavors are full and rich, colored by food-friendly acidity and a hint of leather. Smooth tannins come through on the velvety ﬁnish. 2009 HENRY FESSY JULIENAS, $16.99 The aromas in this wine are ﬁlled with a juicy core of sweet berry, backed by anise and dark chocolate. This pick is surprisingly big and bold for a beaujolais, but at the same time, it maintains an exceptional balance. Ripe blackberry and raspberry ﬂavors play against tart cherry, while touches of thyme and mineral come through on the ﬁnish. 2009 POTEL AVIRON MOULIN A VENT, $20 The deep, dark blackberry aromas in this wine are enticingly supple and blend nicely with an earthy spice component. Tangy cherry up front gives way to silky berry, ﬁnishing with racy acidity. This is a well-structured wine that is drinking beautifully now, but with its core of ripe tannins, it will deﬁnitely improve with age. —David Kirkpatrick WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
world. The conditioned seeds typically get milled into ﬂour because there’s no way to separate the minuscule grain into different parts. “I think it’s a great product, a great crop for Idaho. It’s real healthy for everyone,” said Vince Holtz, a diversiﬁed farmer who grows teff for seed and ﬂour in Sunnyslope. Because it’s glutenfree, teff has been gaining popularity in the United States as people with wheat-based allergies and aversions seek out other grains. Teff is also high in ﬁber and calcium, making it a good choice for anyone hoping to eat healthier. Carlson sells a lot of his products to ethnic markets in American cities that boast large East African populations. But home cooks and professional chefs with an interest in food archeology are also ﬁnding creative uses for the grain. “It can be used in all kinds of dishes. It adds a delicious, slightly sour taste to your recipes,” Carlson said. “Wafﬂes and pie crusts made from the ﬂour taste great.” Chef Jered Couch, executive chef at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Nampa and former owner of SixOneSix in Eagle, uses teff on his seasonal menus and occasionally teaches classes about cooking with ancient grains. Couch also touts teff’s culinary versatility. “I like to reduce the grains with veggie stock until it becomes creamy like polenta,” he said. “Teff also works well for making savory little cakes to go with grilled ﬁsh and as crepe batter.” He added: “The story of teff is great. You’re actually eating a food that people ate way back when, prepared almost the same way.” 28

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): “In a full heart there is room for everything,” said poet Antonio Porchia, “and in an empty heart there is room for nothing.” That’s an important idea for you to meditate on, Aries. The universe is conspiring for you to be visited by a tide of revelations about intimacy. And yet you won’t be available to get the full benefit of that tide unless your heart is as full as possible. Wouldn’t you love to be taught more about love and togetherness and collaboration? TAURUS (April 20-May 20): As I turn inward and call forth psychic impressions of what’s ahead for you, I’m seeing mythic symbols like whoopie cushions, rubber chickens and pools of fake plastic vomit. I’m seeing popcorn shells that are stuck in your teeth, a dog that’s eating your homework and an alarm clock that doesn’t go off when it’s supposed to. But as I push further into the nottoo-distant future, exploring the deeper archetypal levels, I’m also tuning into a vision of fireflies in an underground cavern. They’re lighting your way and leading you to a stash of treasure.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” That’s the opening sentence of Charles Dickens’ bestselling novel A Tale of Two Cities. The author was describing the period of the French Revolution in the late 18th century, but he could just as well have been talking about our time—or any other time, for that matter. Of course, many modern cynics reject the idea that our era is the best of times. They obsess on the idea that ours is the worst of all the worst times that have ever been. When your worried mind is in control of you, you may even think that thought yourself, Gemini. But in accordance with the current astrological omens, I challenge you to be a fiery rebel: Come up with at least five reasons why this is the best of times for you personally. CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life,” said Pablo Picasso. That’s certainly true for me. I can purify my system either by creating art myself or being in the presence of great art. How about you, Cancerian? What kinds of experiences cleanse you of the congested emotions that naturally build up in all of us? What influences can you draw on to purge the repetitive thoughts that sometimes torment you? How do you go about making your imagination as fresh and free as a warm breeze on a sunny day? I urge you to make a study of all the things that work for you, and then use them to the max in the coming week.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Our culture peculiarly honors the act of blaming, which it takes as the sign of virtue and intellect.” So said literary critic Lionel Trilling. Now I’m passing his idea on to you, Leo, just in time for the No-Blaming Season. Would you like to conjure up a surge of good karma for yourself? Then for the next 10 days or so, refrain from the urge to find fault. And do your best to politely neutralize that reflex in other people who are sharing your space, even if they love to hate the same political party or idiot fringe that you do. P.S.: For extra credit, engage in speech and activity that are antidotes to the blaming epidemic. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): One reason platinum is a precious metal is that it is so infrequently found in the Earth’s crust. A second reason is that there are difficulties in extracting it from the other metals it’s embedded in. You typically need 10 tons of ore to obtain 1 ounce of platinum. That’s a good metaphor for the work you have ahead of you, Virgo. The valuable resource you’re dreaming of is definitely worth your hard work, persistence and attention to detail. But to procure it, you’ll probably need the equivalent of several tons of those fine qualities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): While doing research in South America four decades ago, anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss found an indigenous tribe whose people claimed they could see the planet Venus in the daytime. This seemed impossible to him. But he later consulted astronomers, who told him that in fact, Venus does emit enough light to be visible by day to a highly trained human eye. My prediction for you, Libra, is that in the coming months you will make a metaphorically equivalent leap: You will become aware of and develop a relationship with some major presence that has been virtually undetectable. And I bet the first glimpse will come this week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Whether anyone has ever called you an “old soul” before, that term will suit you well in the coming months. A whole lot of wisdom will be ripening in you all at once. Past events that never quite made sense before will more clearly reveal the role they have played in your life’s master plan. Relatively unimportant desires you’ve harbored for a long time will fade away, while others that have been in the background—and more crucial to your ultimate happiness—will rise to prominence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In most of my horoscopes, I tell you what you can do to make yourself feel good. I advise you
on how you can act with the highest integrity and get in touch with what you need to learn about. Now and then, though, I like to focus on how you can help other people feel good. I direct your attention to how you can inspire them to align with their highest integrity and get in touch with what they need to learn about. This is one of those times, Sagittarius. I’m hoping you have your own ideas about how to perform these services. Here are a few of my suggestions: Listen with compassionate receptivity to the people you care for. Describe to them what they’re like when they are at their best. Give them gifts they can use to activate their dormant potential. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you’ve ever watched tennis matches, you know that some players grunt when they smack the ball. Does that help them summon greater power? Maybe. But the more important issue is that it can mask the sound of the ball striking the racket, thereby making it harder for their opponents to guess the force and spin of the ball that will be headed toward them. The coming week would be an excellent time for you to hunt down a competitive advantage that’s comparable to this in your own endeavors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Many people seem to believe that all of America’s Christians are, and have always been, fundamentalists. But the truth is that, at most 35 percent of the total are fundies, and their movement has only gotten cultural traction in the last 30 years. So, why do their bizarre interpretations of the nature of reality get so much play? One reason is that they shout so loud and act so mean. Your upcoming assignment, Aquarius, is to do what you can to shift the focus from smallminded bullies to big-hearted visionaries, whether that applies to the Christians in your sphere or any other influences. It’s time to shrink any tendency you might have to get involved with energy vampires. Instead, give your full attention and lend your vigorous clout to life-affirming intelligence. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): [WARNING: The following contains more than the usual dose of poetry.] Mirthful agitation. Surprising deliverance. I predict you will expose the effects of the smoke and mirrors, then find your way out of the labyrinth. Lucid irrationality. Deathless visions. I predict you will discover a secret you’d been hiding from yourself, then escape a dilemma you no longer need to struggle with. Mysterious blessings arriving from the frontiers. Refreshed fertility roused by a reborn dream. I predict you will begin to prepare a new power spot for your future use.
