13th Annual Winefest on the Basque Block 

After throwing one of the biggest and best parties in Boise, Jaialdi 2010, you'd think the good people of the Basque block would be ready for a month or two of rest and relaxation, maybe take some time off for their worn-out livers and tired legs. But instead, they've chosen to throw a large wine festival, with a selection of nearly 100 domestic and import labels.

The Basque Museum and Cultural Center's 13th annual WineFest will take place on Friday, Aug. 13. In addition to the variety of reds and whites, restaurants in the area will supply a selection of tapas to pair with the wine. There's also a silent auction with hotel stays, jewelry, artwork, gift certificates, specialty wine and more going to the highest bidders. The Oinkari Basque Dancers will be there, livening up the atmosphere with their traditional Basque folk dancing. The entry fee gets you a commemorative glass and some scrip to purchase the tapas and/or wine. Fifteen different distributors and vendors will showcase their wines, with plenty of free samples. Proceeds benefit the Basque Museum.

Friday, Aug. 13, 5:30-9:30 p.m., $27 adv., $30 door, four for $100, Basque Block, Grove St., basquemuseum.com.
