1. RAP UP THE WEEK
2. STAMPEDE DOWNTOWN
It puzzles me that more Boise basketball fans don’t check out the Idaho Stampede. Six-foot-10 forward Jeff Ayres has been going off lately. The NBA D-League team takes on the Texas Legends on Saturday and Sunday at CenturyLink Arena. [Tickets]
3. GORGE ON CHOCOLATE
Vote for your favorite chocolate dish at the To Die For Chocolate Festival in Meridian. There will be a no-host beer-and-wine bar, live music and a bounce house for the munchkins, too. It’s from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Forward Movement Training Center, 125 W. Taylor Ave.
4. DON’T INHALE
After releasing their debut album in 2008, San Diego reggae band Tribal Seeds has made a steady ascent into fans’ hearts. Actually, make that their lungs. The group headlines Sunday at the Knitting Factory. [Tickets]
