“Mission: Impossible” The one that started it all features one of the most intense heist scenes committed to film, in which Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is suspended from a wire inside a high tech vault that will alert security if he makes a sound. A well orchestrated film that will have the audience guessing until the end, “Mission: Impossible” is a great caper.

“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” The newest installment takes Hunt to the tallest building in the world, which he must scale with magnetic

And by that I mean … it’s time to hit the gym. Libra 9/23 – 10/22 If you’ve ever seen the musical “Grease”, you might be a bit like Rizzo this week. If not … you should probably watch it, stat.

gloves. Guaranteed to make even the most unflappable person sweat, this film redefines the franchise as well as the genre.

“The Hurt Locker” This Oscar winning film about bomb diffusers in Iraq takes a cold, hard look at what war does to a man. Filled with intense unpredictability and phenomenal performances, “The Hurt Locker” is easily one of the best war films ever.

“A Few Good Men” One of the most acclaimed courtroom dramas in history, “A Few Good Men” takes a simple murder trial and

turns it into a tour de force of excitement, culminating in one of the most quoted lines in film. Even if you don’t like courtroom movies, this one is mandatory viewing.

to be the best, with its gritty action and suspense so thick you could cut it with a knife. A well-done film all around, “The Bourne Ultimatum” is a perfect conclusion to a thrilling trilogy.

“Casino Royale”


The first Daniel Craig James Bond film, “Casino Royale” pits Bond against a terrorist banker in a high stakes poker game that will leave you breathless. Add intense action and clever dialogue and you’ve got a first class film.

One of the most mysterious films out there, “Cloverfield” racks up plenty of scares, thrills and chills. While not much else can be said without ruining it, one can say it is a true nail biter.

“The Bourne Ultimatum” Really any of the Bourne films could be on this list, but “Ultimatum” is widely regarded

“The Fugitive” Framed for the death of his wife, Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) goes on the run, evading cops, friends and a de-

termined U.S. Marshall (Tommy Lee Jones in an Oscar winning role) who is sent to track him down. With suspenseful momentum and riveting performances, “The Fugitive” is a true classic.

“The Town” Before winning an Oscar for “Argo,” Ben Affleck directed and starred in this tale of a bank robber who falls in love with the victim of his latest heist. With an all-star cast and Affleck’s slick direction, “The Town” takes the cake as a top of the line movie. Bradley Burgess can be reached at

Patience is a virtue molly spencer rawr

Have you ever wondered what it is about Mrs. Fields pretzel bites that makes them golden brown on the outside, but light and fluffy on the inside? With the right amount of patience, TLC and boiling baking soda water, you can make pretzel bites that taste as good, if not better than Mrs. Fields. If there is one thing I would change to make these tasty bites even tastier, it would be to aqcuire that hot, melty warm cheese you can buy to go with your mall pretzel. Once you have mastered the pretzels themselves, you can get creative by making different flavors of pretzels. For example, instead of drizzling melted butter over the pretzels when they come out of the oven, I added garlic spread to the melted butter and as a result — garlic pretzel bites.

Steps 1. 2.



Combine flour, brown sugar, yeast, warm water and warm milk together in bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms. Add the remaining flour as needed. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times, forming a smooth ball. Brush the inside of a large clean bowl with olive oil (or veggie oil). Transfer the dough to the bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Allow to rise in a warm, draftfree area for 5 to 10 minutes, or until dough has risen. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 4 equal pieces. Lightly dust your hands and rolling pin with flour. Roll one of the four sections into a 12 x 4-inch rectangle.

1/2 cup finely chopped ham (I just used lunch meat) 1/2 cup shredded cheese of choice 6 cups water 4 teaspoons baking soda 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 1-2 tablespoons coarse salt

press 1/4 of the ham and cheese into the bottom third of the dough, and roll as tightly as possible, starting with the end that has the filling. Cut into 12 1-inch pieces and transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining 3 portions of the dough. Preheat oven to 400. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Add baking soda to water and reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Boil pretzels in batches, cooking about 20 seconds each, turning once. They should be slightly puffed. Use a slotted spoon to transfer them back to the baking sheets. Bake until puffed and golden-brown, about 15 minutes. Brush warm pretzel bites with melted butter and sprinkle with salt. Serve warm or at room temperature. For some extra flavor, I added garlic spread to my butter before drizzling over the pretzel bites.




A perfect team

Moscow Alehouse joins forces with River City Brewery ryan tarinelli rawr In 2010 when the Coeur d’Alene Brewing Co. closed down, the Moscow Alehouse in downtown Moscow found themselves in a bind. The Coeur d’Alene brewery had been the sole supplier to the local bar and eatery for decades, and with no more supply, management was at a loss. “For all of these years we had been running under the ‘mother ship’ that had been the Coeur d’Alene Brewing Co., and when it closed down, we were not sure what to do,” said Wendy “Smiley” Johnson, owner of the Alehouse. “We phased out the Coeur d’Alene beers and then we just started bringing in a rotating tap selection, and we had been doing that for two years … we weren’t sure if people would be receptive to rotating taps, and I think people have really jumped in, seeing some of their favorites (on the menu).” After two years of no beer from the Coeur d’Alene Brewery, CEO Gage Stromberg decided to start brewing again — however, this time in Spokane under a new

name, River City Brewing, and started supplying the Alehouse at the beginning of 2013. “Last year when Gage Stromberg decided to start brewing again he came to me and said ‘I want to be a beer man, I don’t want to be a restaurant man anymore’, and I took the opportunity and bought the Alehouse,” Johnson said. The Alehouse will still continue to rotate taps but will consistently supply two taps from the River City Brewing Co.: the Huckleberry Ale and the Vanilla Bourbon Stout, Johnson said. Variety of beer in a college town is sometimes a hard thing to find, with microbrews and regional beers often not given limelight in college bars, but the Alehouse is different. “I think people are really starting to become appreciative of what’s in front of them, there are so many great microbrews out there, everybody is brewing these neat, thoughtful beers,” she said. “It gives people in this little town an opportunity to try hundreds of different beers.” At the beginning of the year, the Alehouse revamped their image to signal in new ownership

and the return of the River City beer. The Alehouse’s official name was also changed to “Moscow Alehouse,” with a new logo design, Johnson said. “We still rotate our taps, the menu is the same, new logo and a little face lift,” she said. The Alehouse also supplies comment cards so customers can recommend beers they would like to see on tap, which is something not many other bars do, Johnson said. The Alehouse has established itself as one of the premier bars in Moscow, attracting local residents as well as a steady stream of University of Idaho students. With such variety of beers it’s no wonder the Alehouse has so much local support, longtime Alehouse customer Tyler Dixon said. Dixon also said the rotating taps for the past two years were really cool because it was different every few weeks, but it’s really nice to have the Coeur d’Alene beers back on tap and to see what different beers they come out with.

The Empty Bowls Project kaitlyn martin rawr

The Empty Bowls Project is a national project helping individual communities. The idea is that each empty bowl represents an empty belly, and when the bowl is full, so is the belly. At Moscow Wild at Art, people can purchase a bowl and paint it. Moscow Wild at Art will glaze and fire it, and then donate it to the project. Each bowl costs $9, plus tax. “The bowl will be displayed at Moscow Wild at Art leading up to the event. It will then be turned over to the Empty

Bowls event at the 1912 Building in Moscow,” Rodney Wolverton, from Wild at Art said. The Empty Bowls event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 13 in the 1912 center. The Moscow Heart of the Arts is donating the use of the center and the Moscow Food Co-op is donating the soup and bread that will be served. The donated bowls will be sold at the event with the soup and the bread. All proceeds will go to local community organizations helping the hungry. As a souvenir, people get to keep the bowl they bought to remind them of the cause they supported.

“Folks choose a bowl and the cost covers the bowl, soup and bread,” Ryan Law, president of the Palouse Potters Guild, said. Each Empty Bowls project is different across the U.S. Anyone can start one, the creators of the event just ask for the name to stay the same to continue the message. Every project is designed to help each community individually and the proceeds affect a more local area. But together as a nation, the idea is consistent. The Palouse Studio Potters Guild began participating in the Empty Bowls Project 10 years ago. Proceeds from this

project have been used to help support local food banks across the Palouse. Moscow Wild at Art is a small studio on Sixth Street in Moscow. On the first of the year, it opened as “Moscow Wild at Art” due to a change in ownership. Before the studio was known as “Wild at Art” and the new owners wanted to keep the same idea and reach the same audience. They offer a variety of ceramics people can paint and they will glaze and fire them. Right now, Moscow Wild at Art is taking reservations for the University of Idaho Moms Weekend.

hours of operation Wednesday - Thursday 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Friday - Saturday 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Sunday 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Moscow Wild at Art is always open for party reservations and special events. It is possible to open the studio on days they are closed to the public for such events. Kaitlyn Martin can be reached at

Coffee and canvas

aleya ericson rawr Sister’s Brew was once located at 218 S. Main St., but on the first of March, Sister’s Brew relocated and Café Artista opened as Moscow’s newest coffee shop two weeks later. The shop is owned by Bev and Lisa Bafus, a mother and daughter team. “We heard this place was for sale late last summer. And so we had been thinking about the idea both here and other places,” Bev Bafus said. “And so my daughter and I went to the Seattle Barista Academy in Seattle in December and we went through the academy and graduated because we decided to invest in ourselves first and know what we were doing.” Café Artista reorganized and redecorated the café during the two-week period before the store opened. “A lot of the stuff was here so we started out with the bones of the stuff that Sister’s Brew had.” Bev said. “And a lot of the decorating is my daughter — she’s an artist. She’s just got this quirky eye for stuff.” A major feature for Café Artista is local art. There is a space in the café that sells

goods from local artists such as pots and jewelry. The café will eventually have gallery space that rotates between different artists. “Our big future plan is to have gallery space for local artists especially young artists, college students and high school students that need a foot in the door and experience showing somewhere,” Lisa Bafus said. Artists interested in having their art shown at the café should talk to whoever is on duty at the register. The front counter will have applications for artists who should bring sample pieces of art with them. In order to be displayed, artists’ pieces will have to be approved by the owners. Café Artista also incorporates art into their coffee in the form of latté art. Latte art is a method of preparing coffee that results in a design or pattern on the top of the cup. “Right now, we are mostly hearts and rosettes,” Lisa said. Another attraction to Café Artista is Stumptown coffee, which originated in the Portland-Seattle area. “We get our coffee from the Seattle roastery and we get it within a day of roasting, so

café artista Hours Monday - Saturday 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Sunday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Address 218 S. Main Phone 208-882-1324 it’s always really fresh,” Bev said. “And Stumptown has a unique style and flavor, people recognize it and if they know Stumptown they are really excited to hear that Stumptown is in Moscow.” The café also offers three different kinds of drip coffee: a Hairbender, which is Stumptown’s basic blend, decaf and a single-origin coffee. The varietal that is offered changes every week. “Because Stumptown does direct trade with their farmers, they know who their farmers are,” Bev said. “On a lot of their varietals, right on the bag you’ll see the longitude and latitude of where they are.”
