What to See in 2C 

BW's top entertainment picks


Do it On Eight Wheels

Need some old-school recreation? Bust out the roller/inline skates and head to the Roller Drome Roller Skating Rink (19 10th Ave. S., Nampa, 208-466-9905), which has been turning circles since 1949. This place must have been something to see in the 1970s.

Bingo is the Game-o

It's not just for little old ladies and elementary-school students anymore. The competition is fast and furious at Nampa Bingo (2900 E. Railroad St., Nampa, 208-465-7522), and the bingo sharks take their game seriously. Try your luck at heading home with a little more cash in your pocket and an involuntary reflex to mark off numbers.

Movie and a Brew

Forget overpriced popcorn and fountain drinks, Northern Lights Cinema Grill (1509 Caldwell Blvd., Nampa, 208-475-2999, northernlightscinemagrill.com) knows how to do it right: beer and nachos. With a full menu of burgers, wraps, salads and more, along with beer and wine, adults can catch a $3 second-run flick with a full meal. The theater also shows UFC fights and Boise State football games. Beer and wine service doesn't start until after 6:15 p.m. to keep the early shows family friendly but that guarantees an adults-only night out later.

Higher Learning

Looking for some entertainment that will stretch your intellect? Check out the schedule of events at the College of Idaho (2112 Cleveland Blvd., Caldwell

208-459-5011, collegeofidaho.edu) and Northwest Nazarene University (623 Holly St., Nampa,

208-467-8011, nnu.edu). Both institutions of higher learning offer numerous programs and events throughout the year that welcome the public, from film series and lectures to art shows and concerts. For more information, check each school's full event schedule online.
