Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

When you aren’t trying to guess which new “breastaurant” franchise is opening in Boise. (You’ll find out in my Sunday column) …

1. SKI FREE AT BOGUS
Warm weather has arrived, and that means skiing and snowboarding is about to disappear. Bogus Basin wants you to dress wacky and enjoy an end-of-season party Sunday. The theme is “Holiday Mash-Up,” and if you wear something silly, you get to ride the lifts free.

2. HANG WITH TRACY
With “30 Rock” coming to an end and “Saturday Night Live” way back in his rear-view mirror, Tracy Morgan is returning to his original love: stand-up comedy. His “Excuse my French” tour visits the Egyptian Theatre on Saturday night. [Tickets]
Warning: profanity

3. HUNT FOR EGGS
You definitely can’t take the rugrats to Tracy Morgan, so be a good parent and drive them to an Easter Egg hunt earlier in the day. The big one is the annual Mix 106 Easter Egg Scramble in Julia Davis Park, but there are others in Meridian and Nampa. [More]

4. LET OUT THE CLUTCH
When you’ve been around as long as Maryland band Clutch has, you know how to rock with force. The group just released a very solid zillionth album, “Earth Rocker,” and is bringing a wicked veteran opener from England with it Sunday night at the Knitting Factory: Orange Goblin. Snag tickets here.


5. TREAT YOURSELF TO BRUNCH
Sunday is Easter. You don’t need to be doing dishes. We’ve rounded up best bets for places to enjoy a standout Easter brunch right here.
