Mountain Home Country Music Festival to improve fan experience

BY MICHAEL DEEDS

mdeeds@idahostatesman.com

If you were one of the 14,000 people at last year’s inaugural Mountain Home Country Music Festival, you probably emerged grinning, exhausted and caked in a fine layer of sweat and grime. The music lineup was on a scale unlike anything Southern Idaho country fans had experienced before. But the site itself? “Duuusty,” festival president Anne Hankins admitted afterward. (She’s a straight shooter.) Good news, cowboy: Elmore County will be a more appealing party spot July 29-31 at the second annual country bash, which happens 35 miles east of Mountain Home. Whether your gripe involved the dirt in your mouth or the

sloth-like traffic, Hankins is confident that you will be happier in year No. 2. “I think people are going to be shocked at the changes out there,” Hankins says. Some of the festival’s improvements are a result of state and local government easing up rules. Others come from firstyear trial and error. Last summer, cattle grazed the location until a few weeks before the festival. “They had chummed it down to nothing,” Hankins says. The cows got chased out this year. Also, grass was replanted, including in the camping area. Just as crucial, 648 semi-truck loads of decomposed granite were spread on the roads last month. Dust-suppressing magnesium chloride will be laid on top of that when festival time rolls around. No more dust in the wind. “It will literally be like after a rain has hit out on the road, and you really can’t kick anything up,” Hankins promises. What about water? Despite triple-digit temperatures, concerns about a state-granted

water right meant festivalgoers weren’t allowed to fill wading pools in 2015. Not. Cool. This year? “No restrictions on water,” Hankins says. “People can have swimming pools. We will have a water company that will come around and fill up pools.” There’s also a new road that will make it more efficient to drive into the camping area. One thing that has not changed? The size of the acts. Some of Nashville’s biggest stars — Brantley Gilbert, Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean — will headline. The Mountain Home Country Music Festival brings about $3 million of economic revenue into the area, Hankins says, and will continue to serve as a place for local schools and nonprofits to raise money — to the tune of about $90,000 in 2015. But the future of the event is not guaranteed. If attendance doesn’t start to grow, the Mountain Home Country Music Festival might not exist past 2017. “Our sweet spot number is right around that 20,000 mark,” Hankins says. “Unfortunately,” she explains with a chuckle, “Kenny and Jason don’t play for free.” Online: mountainhomefestival.com. COOL CHANGES AT HUCKLEBERRY JAM, TOO The Huckleberry Jam — Aug. 11-13 at Tamarack Resort — is another festival tweaking its infrastructure in year two. Featuring acts such as Michael Franti, Brandi Carlile and Lake Street Dive, it’s going to be

a summer highlight for Idaho rock fans who appreciate fresh mountain air. Workers installed sod this year, meaning festivalgoers will spread their blankets on lush, green grass in the amphitheater. Plus, the camping area has been moved from the distant Donnelly Airport to a grassy spot off the side of the golf course. It will be easy to walk or bike to the main stage, although a shuttle also will provide transportation. The Huckleberry Jam’s laidback atmosphere and old-school pricing impressed me last year. (Beers will cost $5 again this year, by the way, and Goose Island and 10 Barrel craft brews will be among the offerings. Make sure to bring Joe IPA, 10 Barrel!) To ensure its future health, Huckleberry is another festival that needs its attendance to rock a little harder. Last year, only about 1,000 fans attended the

first night, and 2,000 the second. This is a modest-sized event, but it sure would be inspiring to see more like 4,000 fans make the two-hour drive to Donnelly. Advance ticket sales are solid so far, says Kevin Godwin, regional vice president of organizer Townsquare Media. He adds: “I’m bullish.” Online: thehuckleberryjam.com.

Much of the conversation around the genderswapped remake of “Ghostbusters” has been protests from (mostly) male fans of the original, who don’t want to see women in the roles popularized by Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson in the 1984 original. But what’s the fun in re-creating a direct facsimile of a piece of art or entertainment? This version, directed by

Paul Feig, written with Katie Dippold, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, proves to be a fun and fresh way to reboot the franchise. The beloved original was a cultural phenomenon. But the “Ghostbusters” that 2016 demands is not the one from 1984. All the predatory leering, sensual dream ghosts and weirdly sexy ghost possession would go over about as well as a Bill Cosby joke this year, and the genderflip is the exact right way to reboot “Ghostbusters.”

Happily, Feig and team easily pull it off. The film is legitimately hilarious, spooky and manages to capture the irreverent fun of the original. The characters aren’t direct translations from the 1984 film, and they don’t share a universe, but they do have the same DNA. Erin (Wiig) is the skeptic, Abby (McCarthy) is the enthusiastic go-getter behind the operation, Holtzmann (McKinnon) is the brains and Patty (Jones) brings the knowledge of New York City. The performances are

loose and relaxed, and Wiig and McCarthy, who can both push the boundaries of weirdness to an extreme, are mostly reined in. The humor is built out of character moments, funny asides, casual ribbing and ongoing bits that build to a fever pitch over the course of the film (and it doesn’t necessarily translate to ideal trailer moments). The standout is a magnificently unhinged Kate McKinnon, the nimble, rubber-faced comedian best known for “Saturday Night Live,” making her breakout film turn here. As the begoggled genius Holtzmann, she licks her chops and spouts streams of quasi-scientific gibberish — and also gets the best goosebump-raising moment of heroics. The film prioritizes mood, tone and laughs over plotting, with a third act that feels a bit rushed.

But the climactic effects are eye-popping, scary and hokey in an intentional way, evoking a sense of cheesy vintage fun among all the gooey-green slime. There are some references to “never read the comments,” a direct jab at online trolls, and the main villain espouses rhetoric that sounds awfully similar to that of men’s rights activists. Chris Hemsworth is wonderful as the ditzy secretary, whom Erin drools over. There’s fun in the gender flip itself, but it’s based in character and story. The feminism of “Ghostbusters” doesn’t have to be announced. All we need to see are women who are confident scientists, leaders and heroes, who don’t have to defend themselves based on their gender, because in this world, it’s not a factor. It shouldn’t be a factor in the film’s reception either. Somehow, this “Ghostbusters” remake is going to push us all to reckon with what a more equal world might look like, whether we like it or not. Fortunately, the movie is tremendously easy to like.

“Breaking Bad” was the turning point of Bryan Cranston’s career. He went from goofy “Malcolm in the Middle” sitcom dad to masculine antihero. It’s the midlife crisis of suburban sitcom dads who find out that they really like being bad. “The Infiltrator” is the tale of two Bobs: Mazur and Musella. It’s a true story, based on the book by Robert Mazur, a U.S. customs special agent who went undercover in the 1980s to expose big banks working in collu-

sion with Colombian drug cartels to launder money. Cranston plays both Bobs — Mazur is a modest Miami dad with a wife (Juliet Aubrey) and two kids, and Musella is a flashy mob-money launderer with a young, glamorous blonde fiancee (Diane Kruger) draped in fur and jewels. The line between crime and justice is constantly blurred in “The Infiltrator. It’s “one last job” for Bob, whose real-life wife begins to wonder why he decided to take on this high-risk mission when he was eligible for retirement. Even his partner, Emir Abreu (John

Leguizamo), questions his motivations. It’s Cranston’s performance and Leguizamo’s that propel the film, as well as a sleek, silvery Benjamin Bratt, as a cartel operator with whom Bob forms a deep friendship he ultimately must betray. But there are times when “The Infiltrator” feels like a cut-rate “Blow,” a degraded Xerox copy of every ‘80s Miami drug movie. Directed by Brad Furman, and shot by Joshua Reis, the film’s style is a bit overwrought: the image itself layered with grain and saturated color to evoke a vintage aesthetic, but which at times abruptly shifts in color palette, to a drastically desaturated look for example, with no discernible storytelling motivation. “The Infiltrator” rides on Cranston’s abilities to ably and sensitively portray the average American

man torn between his double life — the man who wants both lives. The story itself often seems outlandish, and if it weren’t based on a true one, would feel unrealistic and overly contrived. That unbelievable aspect is a large part of the appeal of “The Infiltrator,” which would otherwise seem like just another generic drug world fable.

Documentary follows Yo-Yo Ma’s new ensemble BY DAVID PATRICK STEARNS

The Philadelphia Inquirer

Typical of so much video associated with the beloved, charismatic cellist Yo-Yo Ma, “The Music of Strangers” is full of humanitarian philosophy and picturesque shots of artist and cello in exotic locales. But pre-emptive skepticism is best placed on hold. Morgan Neville’s high-budget HBO documentary about Ma and the musicians in his crosscultural Silk Road En-

semble captures all manner of real-life moments — especially as the initial kumbaya purpose behind the group’s formation in 2000 becomes complicated and heightened with the geopolitics of our time. Backing up for a sec, the documentary spells out how Ma, now 60 and raised in America by Chinese parents, came so early and easily to classical music success that much of the rest of his career has been, “Now what?” Ma also admits that the touring life was such that

leaving home made him physically ill — his son Nicholas says he once thought his dad worked at Boston’s Logan Airport — and left him looking for greater social purpose amid the rigors of fame. What makes “The Music of Strangers” a thoroughly worthwhile film is the stories of the individuals. Chinese pipa player Wu Man, seen with an electrified version of her instrument, has created a niche where none previously existed. Galician bagpiper Cristina Pato is a

magnetic screen presence, starting with archival footage of her early years translating her folk tradition into rock ’n’roll and then in later performances with Silk Road Ensemble. Unlike some music

documentaries, there’s plenty of music, though the choice of high-energy excerpts might suggest that Silk Road Ensemble is mainly about ecstatic jam sessions. It’s not. I do wonder whether the group will have lasting impact. (The new album

has an adaptation of Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony that’s puzzlingly awful). But the symbolic value of diverse musicians finding musically rich common ground is a crucial statement that can’t be made often enough.

s ’60s icons go, James Taylor is massive. His gentle singer-

songwriter melodies continue to roll out and help him draw stadium-size audiences whenever he tours. His latest studio album, “Before This World,” released last year, was his first to go No. 1 since his 1970 breakthrough, “Sweet Baby James.” But Taylor says the very notion that he is alive at the age of 68, let alone

enjoying a still-thriving career, didn’t seem probable or even possible when he was a teenager struggling with drugs, mental illness and the cruel whimsy of the music business. “I didn’t really have any options” besides trying to make it in music, says Taylor, who spent his childhood between Massachusetts and North Carolina while his father, an educator and naval officer, was often away from home. Taylor tells his story in a calm, measured voice, without histrionics or self-pity. He sounds like a guy with all the time in the world, in no particular rush to end the conversation, much like the guy who turned “You’ve Got a Friend,” a song by his friend Carole King, into an anthem of assurance. “I dropped out of high school and spent my college education money staying at a psychiatric hospital,” he says of a time when he tumbled into depression and eventually drug addiction. “ ‘I’m only living for the end of the week,’ as (his 1991 song) ‘Copperline’ says. I didn’t think beyond that. My folks were educated people, and they had expectations. I assumed it meant finishing school, finding a career, probably an academic one. But my family fell apart (through divorce), and I fell apart. It was mysterious to me why. I had no expectations of what would happen to me.” Taylor grew up on a steady diet of show tunes, jazz, folk, blues and light classical music in his parents’ home, but his tastes were most profoundly shaped by a book of

church hymns and Ray Charles. “Hymns and carols, they are just basically a foundational education, they are what a lot of Western music is based on,” he says. “I grew up in a very nonreligious household, and it wasn’t till I went away to school and got exposed to this stuff that I learned all of these hymns.” His brother introduced him to soul music in the late ‘50s. “I remembered the first time he played me Ray Charles’ ‘Yes Indeed!’ and it was like someone altered the world,” he says. “It turned on the light.” The teenaged Taylor developed his chops in bands such as the Flying Machine, with future guitar mainstay Danny Kortchmar, but all his early musical ventures imploded. The breakup of the latter band was referenced in one of his most famous songs, “Fire and Rain”: “Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground.” With his career going nowhere in America, Taylor flew to England to start over, even though he was virtually penniless and had no realistic prospects for gigs or recordings.

mixed feelings about his brief run at Apple. “The Beatles had this great idea for a record label and an organization that would be by and for artists. I’m sure it was hemorrhaging money. (Beatles manager) Brian Epstein had died, and into the vacuum stepped Allen Klein, who was just a pirate. Peter (Asher) said he wanted to do an audit (of Taylor’s record sales) and Allen Klein said, ‘Oh, no, you’re not. No one looks at my books.’ He basically was daring us to take him to court. He said, ‘Get lost,’ and we did. He wasn’t interested in anyone on the label — Mary Hopkin, Jackie Lomax, Billy Preston — he was only interested in the Beatles and making money.” Taylor’s next album, “Sweet Baby James,” ushered in a decade that included a dozen top-40 hits and a 12 million-selling anthology. But the singer’s commercial success and

marriage to Carly Simon were complicated by drug abuse, which he describes now as an ultimately doomed attempt to selfmedicate. He finally overcame his addiction to methadone by adopting an intense exercise regimen in the ’80s. Drug use by rock and pop artists is often associated with hedonism rather than an addiction or medical condition. Media coverage of Prince’s fatal overdose on painkillers is a recent example of how such nuances get quashed in sensationalism and stereotyping. Taylor points to recent studies that show the death rate from drug overdoses jumped to an average of 15 per 100,000 in 2014 from 9 per 100,000 in 2003. The deaths are driven largely by addiction to prescription painkillers and heroin. “It was never a social thing, a party thing, with me,” Taylor says. “It was a little bit more depressing,

There’s a noble side to this four-song collection from veteran Boise indie act a.k.a. Belle, fronted by married couple Catherine and Sam Merrick. The first single, “Mustangs,”

and it becomes the center of a very narrow life. It’s not only rock stars. Take a look at the figures for ODs in the last 10 years — look at the trend, these are not illegal drugs manufactured by the French Connection. Corporations are making billions of bucks off this. It’s not just partying rock stars. This kind of desperation, this affliction, it’s an epidemic. The idea that it’s all about rock stars who have no moral fiber and party themselves to death couldn’t be farther from the truth.” That Taylor survived and carried on is a story that continues to mystify and humble him. “Somehow I haven’t died,” he sings on “Today Today Today,” the first song on his latest album. “I thought I found the answer to a problem” with drugs, he says. “Fortunately, I figured out how wrong I was before it was too late.”

demo tape found its way to Peter Asher, a talent scout at the Beatles’ Apple label, and Asher eventually became his manager and strongest advocate. The Beatles themselves took note, and Paul McCartney and George Harrison played on the autobiographical “Carolina in My Mind” on Taylor’s self-titled debut album. “I had been making music for five years — I wasn’t an overnight success,” Taylor says when asked if he felt fortunate to get the Beatles’ attention. “I had five years of stepping up to the plate before the Beatles picked up on me.” “James Taylor” wasn’t a commercial hit, but “it got me noticed and helped me get another record deal,” says the singer, who has

wider appeal than you might suspect. And that’s despite the fact that Corsentino — a member of indie-rock band Sleepy Seeds — also uses this solo project as an opportunity to satisfy his urges on horns and computers (as well as the expected guitars and vocals). Fans of the Treasure Valley music scene will want to check this out to hear interpretations of songs by bands such as Caustic Resin (“Cable”), Built To Spill (“You Are”) and Finn Riggins (“Pannin’ For Gold.”) Facebook.com/ sleepyseahorse

benefits Wild Love Preserve, a Challis nonprofit that rescues and protects wild Idaho horses. As always, Catherine Merrick’s seductive vocals are the focal point of these songs. Sam Merrick’s shimmering guitars run free like the stallions his wife sings about. But the true sonic stampede comes when guest guitarist Brett Netson adds extra pyro to the smoldering, 7-minute standout “Crooked Path,” which climaxes with the meteorshower power of an oldschool Built To Spill jam. akabelle.org/

Josh Ritter, JJ Grey team up for outdoor double feature

Road trip to fun events

It’s gonna be a fantastic Friday night for fans of singer-songwriter Josh Ritter and Southern jam-rocker JJ Grey (pictured). The two men will co-headline Outlaw Field, each flanked by his respective backing musicians — the Royal City Band, in Ritter’s case, and Mofro in Grey’s. It’s a busy time of year for these performers but just the preface of what’s to come; Ritter heads out on tour in support of Jason Isbell this fall, while Grey goes overseas. At this Boise show, Ritter will close. (Hey, he’s the Idaho native, right?) Expect about 75-minute performances from each. — MICHAEL DEEDS

Azteca Mexican Grill, well-known for its late-night food truck in Downtown Boise, has opened a restaurant at 10386 W. Ustick Road in West Boise. The pambazo sandwich, filled with piquant mashed potato, chorizo, lettuce, cilantro, salsa verde, finely chopped onion and a smear of cream cheese, is a tasty memory from Azteca owner Miguel Hurtado’s childhood in Mexico City.

BY JAMES PATRICK KELLY

Special to the Idaho Statesman

Anyone who has spent any time in the bars Downtown has most likely

indulged in the late-night taco truck food from Azteca, which for 20 years has fed the inebriated crowd that congregates near the corner of 6th and Main streets. Carne asada tacos at midnight? A torta sandwich at 2 a.m.? Been there, done that. Owner Miguel Hurtado is a veteran of the tacotruck game. He started

dishing out tacos, mission-style burritos and torta sandwiches back in 1996. He and his family also formerly owned Chilango’s on State Street, where Kibrom’s Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurant now resides. Hurtado recently jumped back into the brick-and-mortar realm when he debuted Azteca Mexican Grill in May on

Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday Menu price range: appetizers, tacos, burritos and Mexican sandwiches $1.25-$7.50; combination and specialty plates $6-$12 Libation situation: Margaritas and lots of Mexican beers, including Dos Equis Amber, Tecate, Sol, Carta Blanca and Bohemia. Kid friendly? Yes Wheelchair accessible? Yes Opened: May 2016 .................................................................................................................

Ustick Road near the corner of Five Mile Road. (He still operates the food truck at night.) The space has been a revolving door of restaurants over the years, most recently a short-lived Korean eatery. It’s not much to look at in terms of décor, but the Hurtado family is warm and welcoming. Azteca has table service, whereas diners or-

dered at the counter at Chilango’s. The menu is a blown-out version of the taco-truck fare. With a full kitchen, more can be done. I’m talking about appetizers, smothered burritos, chiles rellenos and combination plates — offerings that are logistically challenging for a taco truck. Starters include sopes, flautas and taquitos (five for $6.50), a large platter

Azteca Mexican Grill’s carnitas plate serves up big pieces of seasoned and fried pork.

stewed pork in a brick-red sauce that boasts deep dried chile flavors. A lengua taco fit the bill with its marinated and grilled pieces of tender beef tongue hit with fiery green salsa. A carne asada steak taco gave me flashbacks, in a good way, from when I used to close down Pengilly’s Saloon back in the day. I washed the tacos down with a refreshing glass of cinnamon-spiked horchata on ice ($2.50). The truck serves handheld, mission-style burritos, whereas diners at the restaurant also can order smothered specialty burritos with a gamut of fillings. A mole burrito ($6) is the way to go for those with hearty appetites, thanks to a large flour tortilla that gets wrapped around a heap of toothsome shredded chicken, seasoned rice and chunky red salsa — the whole thing cloaked with a dark and semi-sweet mole sauce. Specialty plates, served with saucy refried beans and orangey Mexi-rice, include the best chile relleno ($8) I’ve had in recent years. A plump poblano pepper gets filled

with queso fresco (squeaky like fresh mozzarella) and dipped in an egg batter before receiving a golden-brown sear on a scorching flattop grill. Just the right amount of spicy red sauce, not too much, comes on top of the delicious stuffed pepper. I was not impressed by the shredded beef enchiladas ($7.50), mostly because they were barely recognizable under the weight of all that greasy, melted orange cheese. Carnitas ($8.50), on the other hand, are surely a noteworthy pick. Big pieces of seasoned and fried pork butt — tender and infused with aromatic spices — come next to shredded lettuce, chopped white onion and cilantro and a stripe of garlicky red salsa, served with steamed corn tortillas. Like at most Mexican restaurants, some dishes are better than others at Azteca. Yet the eatery is incredibly affordable and the plates come with a smile. Statesman reviewers pay for their meals and attempt to dine anonymously. Email James Patrick Kelly: scene@ idahostatesman.com.

lined with crispy, fried flour tortilla tubes filled with seasoned chicken, draped with shredded cheese, thick red salsa and a dollop of sour cream. The most impressive item on the platter, though, was the chunky and citrusy guacamole with a garlic kick. Diners also can get griddle-seared quesadillas ($5/chicken, pork or beef) such as one with chicken and gooey melted cheese, garnished with sour cream, lettuce chiffonade, red salsa and shredded cheese. It really contains the same ingredients as the taquitos, only served in a different form. I’m not a fan of the shredded cheddar and jack cheese mix that comes on many of the dishes. Give me queso fresco, please, and not that gringo cheese. Azteca puts out a damn good pambazo sandwich ($5), a popular street food item in Mexico City where Hurtado grew up. The cooks take a large, crumbly roll and dip it in hot sauce, grill it and and stuff it with a piquant mashed potato and chorizo mixture (I could eat a bowl of this stuff on its own), lettuce, cilantro, salsa verde, finely chopped onion and a smear of cream cheese. The restaurant, like the truck, also dishes up traditional torta sandwiches. Tacos ($1.25 each) are an excellent value for those wanting to try a variety of tastes. All the taco meats (and the list is long) are served on grilled, double corn tortillas with finely chopped onion, cilantro and salsa. I found the adobada taco to be especially tasty, with tender chunks of

FOOD NOTES

North End Pizza debuts in Hyde Park BY JAMES PATRICK KELLY

Special to the Idaho Statesman AND MICHAEL DEEDS

mdeeds@idahostatesman.com

N

orth End Pizza opened June 30 at 1513 N. 13th St. in Hyde Park. T.J. and Missy Sayles, co-owners of German bar Prost in Downtown Boise, spent several months remodeling the former Brumfield’s Gallery space into a stylish pizza and beer emporium with the North End neighborhood in mind. The concept is modeled after the decidedly casual Ridge Pizza in Seattle’s Phinney Ridge neighborhood, albeit with a funky Hyde Park twist. The Sayles have once again teamed up with their business partner Chris Navarra, a Seattle restaurateur who owns Ridge Pizza and Prost German Pubs. Don’t expect to find thin-crusted Neapolitan pies here, instead the crust is somewhere between Chicago and New York in terms of thickness. The hand-tossed specialty pizzas (offered in 12- and 18-inch sizes) are named after businesses in Hyde Park. For example, the Sun Ray ($17/$26) boasts artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted garlic and goat cheese. The Hyde Perk ($17/$26) is a real eye-opener with

bacon, Gorgonzola and freshly sliced pear. Diners also can build their own pies ($13-$17) and get appetizers, salads and sandwiches ($10-$11). Check out the special lunch menu offered from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday. It includes baked penne pasta ($7), calzones ($8) and pizza by the slice ($3-$4). The pizza joint keeps a rotating selection of around 15 local, domestic and imported brews on tap. How does a pitcher of Rainier Lager sound for $13? The wine list predominantly features affordable Italian wines by the glass/bottle and local Split Rail wines on tap. North End Pizza is open 11:30 a.m. to midnight (kitchen closes at 11 p.m.) Sunday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. (kitchen closes at midnight) Friday and Saturday. Online: northendpizzaboise.com. NEW TANGO’S IN NAMPA Tango’s Empanadas recently opened in Nampa at 337 Nampa-Caldwell Boulevard. The flagship restaurant at 701 N. Orchard St. in Boise will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in September. Owners Luis and Monica Bremmer have earned a loyal following over the years for serving flaky empanadas and Argentine-style sub-

marine sandwiches. Tango’s dishes up various savory empanadas ($2.50/meat, cheese and veggie), including the Gaucho, a hand-held pie made with ground beef, eggs, olives, onion and bell pepper. The chicken mole empanada is an excellent choice as well. Sweet empanadas ($2.50-$2.75) include chocolate, dulce de leche (caramel) and cherry, to name a few. Try a sub sandwich ($6-$6.95) built on a crusty, freshly baked roll. The Choripan (house-made sausage with chimichurri sauce, lettuce and tomato) is a tasty pick. Tango’s Empanadas is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The Nampa restaurant has a drive-thru for those in a hurry. Online: tangos-empanadas.com. BOISE FRY CO. COMING TO NAMPA Boise Fry Company is slated to open later this summer in downtown Nampa, at 224 12th Ave. S., across the street from the Nampa Public Library. It will be the fifth Treasure Valley location for the Boise-based fast-casual chain/franchiser, which has restaurants in Boise at 204 N. Capitol Blvd., 3083 S. Bown Way and 6944 W. State St., and in Meridian at 2020 E. Over-

There’s no shortage of pizza options in Hyde Park. North End Pizza opened two weeks ago, adding more pie to the choices already offered by Sun Ray Cafe.

land Road. Boise Fry Co. also has a store on Burnside Street in Portland. The eatery is known for its double-cooked fries (think Belgian-style) and beef, bison and vegan burgers. Diners get to choose their size of fries (small or large), type of spud (russet, gold, yam, sweet potato, purple and more) and the cut, which includes regular, home-style, curly and shoestring. Online: boisefrycompany.com. POPEYE’S OPENS IN MERIDIAN Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen opened its fifth Treasure Valley location on June 28 in Meridian, at 3671 E. Fairview Ave., across from The Village at Meridian. The menu at this fastcasual restaurant includes spicy fried chicken, popcorn shrimp, various po’boy sandwiches and Cajun-style fried fish.

Popeye’s started out with humble roots in the New Orleans area in 1972, and the company has grown to more than 2,000 restaurants worldwide. Popeye’s Chicken and Biscuits was rebranded as Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen in 2014. Other Popeye’s in the area can be found at 8840 W. Fairview Ave., Boise; 1612 S. Broadway Ave., Boise; 1325 N. Happy Valley Road, Nampa; and 5005 Cleveland Blvd., Caldwell. Online: popeyes.com. CHEERLEADERS CLOSES; THE TAILGATE OPENS Sports bar Cheerleaders at 815 W. Ann Morrison Park Drive has reopened under new ownership and a new name — The Tailgate. After purchasing Cheerleaders in April, owner Ted Challenger decided it was time for a change. Patrons will find a re-

vamped menu, new drinks and an atmosphere that’s more inviting to women, Challenger says. The Tailgate will offer some healthier menu choices, a better wine list, a redone patio — oh, and a DJ booth for light dancing some nights, Challenger adds. He also plans to launch a free, 35-passenger shuttle in mid-August that will transport patrons to and from his other bars in Downtown Boise: Amsterdam Lounge, 609 W. Main St., and China Blue/ Dirty Little Roddy’s, 100 S. 6th St. The Tailgate’s hours are 11 a.m. to close seven days a week. Online: facebook.com/ thetailgate boise. MICKEYRAY’S BBQ CLOSES The last day was July 2 for the restaurant at 980 N. Milwaukee St. in Boise. Owner Mickey Shields closed his other MickeyRay’s location at 395 W. State St. in Eagle last year after deciding not to renew the lease. At the time, he said that the MickeyRay’s in Boise was “doing fine.” But Shields recently decided to pursue another career opportunity. With the Boise lease also coming up for renewal, he says, the time seemed right to start this new chapter in his life. MickeyRay’s opened in Eagle in 2010 and in Boise in 2011. The restaurant won third place this year in the “Best Local Barbecue” category of the Idaho Statesman’s Best of Treasure Valley readers choice awards.

Tips on radar detectors BY DON LINDICH

Tribune News Service

Q: I read your website about life with your dog and learned you love cars and road trips as much as you love electronics. Given this, do you know anything about radar detectors? I’ve been thinking about getting one, but there are a lot of choices in a lot of price ranges.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

BLESSINGS, GUARANTEED More and more churches offer hesitant parishioners a “money-back guarantee” if they tithe 10 percent (or more) of their income for 90 days — but then feel that God blesses them insufficiently in return. The South Carolina megachurch NewSpring instituted such a program in the 1990s and claims that, of 7,000 recent pledgers, “fewer than 20” expressed dissatisfaction with the Lord. Advocates cite the Bible’s Book of Malachi, quoting God himself (according to Christianity Today): “Test me in this.” “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse” and “see if I will not pour out so much blessing” that “there will not be room enough to store it.” LITIGIOUS SOCIETIES A Insurance agent John Wright filed a lawsuit in Will County, Ill., in June over teenagers playing “ding dong ditch,” in which kids ring a doorbell but run away before the resident answers. The lawsuit claims that bellringer Brennan Papp, 14, caused Wright “severe emotional distress, anxiety and weight loss,” resulting in at least $30,000 of lost income. A The ex-boyfriend of Nina Zgurskaya filed a lawsuit in Siberia after she broke up with him for his reluctance to “pop the question” after a two-year courtship. The man, not named in a dispatch from Moscow, demanded com-

pensation for his dating expenses. The trial court ruled against him, but he is appealing.

terviewer in April. Eklund is already an expert on feline purring (at Purring.org) — although from a distance, as he admits to being allergic to cats.

THE JOB OF THE RESEARCHER A team of researchers is following about 30 cats, recording their moves and sounds, to somehow learn whether housecats have dialects in their meows and alter other patterns of stress and intonation when they “speak” to other cats or to humans. In explaining the project, linguist Robert Eklund personally sounded out “a pretty wide range of meows to illustrate his points,” wrote a New York magazine in-

WAIT, WHAT? Brigham Young University professor Jason Hansen apologized in May after coaxing a student (for extra credit) to drink a small vial of his urine in class. The physiology session was on kidney function, and Hansen thought the stunt would call attention to urine’s unique properties. He confessed later that the “urine” was just food coloring with vinegar added; that he had used the stunt in previous classes; and that he usually

admits the ruse at the next class session. Nonetheless, Hansen’s department chair suggested he retire the concept. FETISHES ON PARADE Recidivist Jesse Johnson, 20, was charged again in June (for suspicion of disturbing the peace) after he had crawled underneath a woman’s car in Lincoln, Neb., waited for her to return, and then, as she was stepping into the car, reaching out to fondle her ankle. It was Johnson’s third such charge this year, and he initially tried to deny the actual touch, instead claiming that he was underneath the car “simply for the visual.”

A: First, a disclaimer. Some drivers may use a radar detector to try and get around the law and speed dangerously, and answering your question doesn’t mean I condone this. If you think a radar detector will make you ticket-proof you are in for a rude awakening. That said, if you are being watched by someone, I think it’s completely fair to want to know. The best detectors provide better rejection of false alerts and superior detection at long ranges and around curves. False alerts can be created on the highway by blind spot warning systems and roadside traffic flow sensors, and in the city by door openers and security systems. Two enthusiast favorites are the $549 Redline from Escort (escortradar.com) and the $399 Valentine One from Valentine Research (valentine1.com). Last year’s surprise hits

were Uniden’s (uniden.com) LRD850 and LRD950, now called the DFR6 and DFR7. These full-featured units are identical except for GPS memory in the $299 DFR7, which can remember 100 stationary false alert locations and mute them. Both have traffic sensor filters and their detection capabilities are competitive with the Escort and Valentine detectors, as is their rejection of false alarms. The $199 DFR6 is possibly the industry’s best buy, given its high performance without the high price. Up next is Uniden’s $79 DFR3. Formerly called the LRD450, many consider it to be the best detector available for under $100. Overall performance is outstanding, though not in same class as the DFR6/DFR7 and it lacks a traffic sensor filter. Whistler’s XTR-145 (whistlergroup.com) is a very basic detector. Under $35 on Amazon, reviewers there give it 4.1 stars and mostly positive reviews. It works, but don’t expect cutting-edge performance and features. Want to learn more? Enthusiast websites vortexradar.com and rdforum.org have many detector reviews, tips on proper usage and real-world experience reports.
