Bosnia Express brings the flavors of Bosnia to Boise through lunches and nightcaps alike. Before the restaurant undergoes its nocturnal transformation into a nightclub and neighborhood bar, cooks layer hearty paninis with thinly sliced meats and vegetables, as well as season gyro meat that’s ready to nestle inside pita pockets. In addition to making fresh sandwiches and pouring drinks, they stock products from overseas, such as Bosnian, Turkish, and Mediterranean snack cookies, pickled vegetables, hair products, and Pavlovic Ointment, whose lid automatically opens whenever a bell rings.
Amid the standard clattering of pins and crunching of nachos found in any bowling alley, Emerald Lanes packs a variety of entertainment to suit the entire family's interests. At the arcade, an assortment of video games churns out tickets that, like America's earliest paper currency, can only be exchanged for prizes such as plush animals and soccer balls. Pool sharks stalk their spherical prey at one of seven billiards tables as they wait for a fresh-made pizza or slake their thirst with a drink from the bar, where three 50-inch flat-screen TVs display live sports games. Of course, bowling remains the main attraction, replete with automatic scoring and optional bumpers to keep balls out of the gutter, much like shoulder angels do for people's minds.
Stage Coach Theatre has entertained audiences for 29 consecutive seasons, shining a flashlight on the human spirit in a variety of genres, including thrillers, comedies, dramedies, and comedramlers. With the 2010–11 season in full bloom, theatergoers can pick its contemporary stage-fruits and slurp up its performance-juices. Darwin in Malibu, a comedy opening October 15, features a living Charles Darwin, 120 years after he died, engaging in a spirited debate with Thomas Huxley and the Bishop of Oxford about science, God, and lesser-known benefits of flossing. For a holiday family outing, A Christmas Twist (opening November 26) stirs the story of A Christmas Carol with a comedic straw, adding a dash of Oliver Twist and Little Orphan Annie. On April 22, Always…Patsy Cline will begin regaling theater-goers with 27 of her tunes, including memorable songs like "Crazy," "Sweet Dreams," and "That Ain't My Medical Chart, Doctor Franklin."
As winner of one of Boise Weekly's 2009 Best of Boise awards, Need to Bead earns local recognition with friendly, knowledgeable staffers who teach a variety of classic and modern jewelry-making techniques. Customers can tote along their own beads or purchase beads ($0.02–$150 each) from the store's glittering selection—which includes vintage beads from the 1930s–1960s, Swarovski crystals, and hand-blown kryptonite—to assemble into lobe adornments under the guidance of experienced instructors. Up to 12 students gather at a long, wooden table to peruse 1,300 available project designs for inspiration and use the studio's tools to craft earrings with a personalized touch. The enclosed kids' room allows children to play, watch movies, or imagine what it's like to fill out tax forms as their parents fashion glimmering accessories.
Das Breakroom welcomes guests to unleash their inner Hulks. They can smash printers to smithereens and rip laptop screens off their hinges or stomp on boom boxes and beat chandeliers to tangled messes using baseball bats. The recreational destruction business provides a safe, contained, and private environment for people to obliterate plates, electronic equipment, and furniture. Although individuals can come in to blow off some steam, Das Breakroom also hosts events for parties of all sizes and offers happy-hour sessions.
