Michael Deeds: 5 Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

1. CATCH UP ON SHAKESPEARE

What? You missed opening weekend? No sweat. Idaho Shakespeare Festival's next play is "As You Like It," which gets rolling this weekend.

2. GET FURR-IENDLY

Got a leash? Got a pet? Enjoy total chaos? You'd better head for Ann Morrison Park on Saturday.

3. SEE UNCOMMON MUSIC

Ever heard of Common Kings? This is no Boise band, not with lead singer JR King (Hawaii/Samoa), guitarist Taumata Grey (Samoa), bassist Ivan Kirimaua (Fiji/Kiribati), and drummer Jerome Taito (Tonga). The group's pop sound has lots of influences with an unmistakable feel-good island vibe. Check 'em out for $15 Saturday night at the Reef.

4. PIG OUT, GREEK STYLE

Eating is good. The 33rd annual Greek Food Festival happens today and Saturday.

5. CRUISE TO A THEATER

Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but ... OK, just say what you will.
