We're Racing to the Holiday Break 

If BW were a college experience, this week would be hell week. Without, unfortunately, a dead week preceding this period of furious work. Longtime readers might recall that BWHQ goes dark for a few days at the end of the year. Whether we like it or not, the bosslady kicks us all out of the office and forces us to find other activities to fill the hours we'd usually spend working our fingers diligently to the bone. This year, thanks to some ingenious scheduling on the part of the universe, we get more than a week. Noon on Wednesday, Dec. 22, is the last time you'll likely get a human on our end of the phone until after the New Year. We will update boiseweekly.com, and since news will have the audacity to happen during our week off, we'll have regular updates on our blogs. Exactly how we intend to accomplish that while "not working" on our forced vacation is utterly top secret but let's just say that we know a band of elves with a bunch of extra time on their hands right around Boxing Day.

If you're one of the dozens of readers who submit events and live music listings for inclusion in our calendar sections, this is your last chance to tell us what you have going on through Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011. In fact, the deadline was Dec. 14, but I'll give you stragglers another day to get them in. E-mail calendar@boiseweekly.com before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 15, for any event happening through Jan. 5, 2011. As always, inclusion of any listing in print is on a space-available basis, but thanks to the infinite nature of the web, we always try to get it all online.

As for this next week, we're busy putting out three issues at once. Be patient if you don't hear back from us right away, and if it can wait until we return on Monday, Jan. 3, 2011, even better.

Finally, I'd like to thank Mondo Gaga cartoonist Mike Flinn for his years as BW contributor. After many, many years of making us laugh--and sometimes, making us cringe and then laugh--Flinn's "Mondo Gaga" will no longer appear in the pages of Boise Weekly. We wish him the best of luck in the future.
