    NPR's StoryCorps broadcasts Boiseans
      Reality TV, talk radio and blogs. These trends in the media haven't really caught my interest. So it was with some skepticism that I ventured online to get the lowdown on StoryCorps, a nonprofit project which, since 2003, has been recording people across America in order "to honor and celebrate one another's lives through listening."

  • A Finer Cut

    "Wood Paper" exhibit from Japan fills beautiful space
      Japanese sculptor Kazuo Kadonaga has quietly taken over Stewart Gallery One, a wide, light, airy front room with a concrete floor painted gray. Kadonaga, who also works in glass, bamboo and paper, provides the first component of Stewart's "Wood Paper" show.

    Idaho Dance Theatre brings friends along for the "Joy Ride"
      Tucked away in a far corner of the already obscure student side of the Morrison Center lies Boise State's diminutive dance studio. This well-worn room, known as B111, holds one of Idaho's artistic treasures. It's not a first-edition Hemingway, or a lost James Castle sketch. This treasure, known as Idaho Dance Theatre, is currently live and in-process. And I was lucky enough to catch an up-close and personal preview of IDT's upcoming performance, "Joy Ride," on the studio's faded marley floors. "Joy Ride" promises cross-media creativity to complement the company's reliable muscular technique and energetic expression.

  • Air: Pocket Symphony

      On first listen, Pocket Symphony seems to offer proof that French popsters Jean-Benoit Dunckel and Nicolas Godin are growing up. But while the musical ideas of the French duo continue to evolve, their lyrical content stays about the same: love, longing and, as always, sex.

  • Tango's Subs and Empanadas

    701 N. Orchard St.
    Mon.-Sat. 11 a.m.-7 p.m., closed Sunday
      From the get-go, I knew I was a long way from corporate cuisine. The cool, clean interior instantly put me at ease. Lush potted plants swayed gently above cream-colored table-and-chair sets, while the hum of the air-conditioning accompanied the strum of something like the Gypsy Kings. Then there was the smell: heavenly and mouth-watering. When I approached the counter, the proprietor kindly explained the menu: Argentinian sandwiches and deep-fried pies.

  • "Flight" Arrives in Boise

    Refugee Art Makes History at Stewart
      What do physicist Albert Einstein, painter Marc Chagall and Boise poet Fidel Nshombo all have in common? Simply calling them refugees isn't a fair way to answer the question. Yet all three have been among the millions displaced by world conflict during the past century, fleeing their homelands to escape persecution, imprisonment, even death. A more thorough (and satisfying) exploration of the plight of displaced persons can be found this week at Stewart Gallery.

  • Franco Latino

    775 S. Rivershore Ln., Eagle
    Hours: Mon.-Sat. 5 p.m.-10 p.m.
      I discovered that Franco and Latino simply describe the restaurant's "fusion of European techniques with Latin flavors" coupled with Chef Mortimer's emphasis on local, seasonal ingredients. D
