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."
At Flyboard Idaho Water Sport, customers gleefully escape gravity's grip. Certified instructors strap them atop a board equipped with twin jets of water that propel them above the drink or let them jump and dive through the water like dolphins. With practice, fliers can learn to perform tricks as well as hovering in the air.
The folks behind Edge Brewing Company channel their passion for craft beer into a diverse roster of brews, from classic IPAs to a creative habanero-spiced cream ale. These and other hopped concoctions come into their full flavor inside Edge's capacious Boise brewery, which also contains a 120-seat restaurant. Here, guests find out quickly that Edge takes its food just as serious as its beer. The menu features wings slathered in house sauces, hand-cut fries, and 1/3-pound burgers, including one buried beneath bacon and tangy peanut-butter sauce. Live bands play every Wednesday evening and on certain nights throughout the summer, when musicians notoriously sweat fresh lemonade.

There is no typical climb at Urban Ascent. With the help of a belaying partner to safeguard their ropes, visitors can scale up to 43 feet of weathered rockface on endurance climbs, or they can stick closer to the ground in the ropes-free bouldering area. Urban Ascent’s team challenges climbers by regularly revamping the 14,000-square-foot gym’s routes, rearranging footholds and installing pop-out boxing-glove gags to add an element of unpredictability to climbs. During private climbing lessons, instructors fine-tune veteran climbers’ techniques or teach newbies basic fundamentals. The staff also imparts climbing-safety basics to first-time belayers in 20-minute tutorials. Urban Ascent hosts summer camps, afterschool climbing activities for students, and corporate team-building workshops.
