Need Something to do Thursday?

Posted By on Thu, Jun 23, 2011 at 7:00 AM

Saturdays are legendary. They're every bit as alright for fighting as they are date nights. No matter your cultural affinities, the word alone carries serious emotional anchors.

But no one thinks much about Thursdays.

Kind of a shame because today, Thursday, is so jam-packed with action, we here at Need Something To Do Today, Inc. couldn't pick a single event worth highlighting. So instead, we're offering a hit list.

First off, you're going to need some fuel. For that, we recommend a pit stop by Deli Days, Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel's annual celebration of all things kosher and delicious. It runs from 11 a.m.- 8 p.m. today and from 11 a.m.-7:30 p.m. tomorrow. Besides delicious deli foods, there will also be tours of the temple and lessons on Israeli dancing. Pastrami ho!

Once you're all full up on kosher corned beef and koogle, hop on your bike and take part in the closing days of Boise Bicycle Project's Pedal for the People. Tonight's big event is Fast Reads for Fast Rides, an evening of bike-related storytelling at Hyde Park Books. That gets going at 6:30 p.m and is free. Wine and beer will be available by donation, with proceeds going to the Idaho Pedestrian and Bicycle Alliance.

And finally, cut f#$%ing loose with punk rock legends T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty) at Red Room. If there was ever a gnarlier/more awesomer song than their homage to necrophilia, "Code Blue," Need Something To Do Today hasn't heard it. That show costs $12 and kicks off at 8 p.m. with Civet, Wilt Chamberlin's Baby and Social Antidote opening.

So look out, Saturday. Thursday may be the new kid in town, but she's a-coming up fast.
