Evaluate my Boise itinerary

funklight | Oct 13, 2009 08:56 AM

I'm headed to Boise for a couple of days this weekend. Through my own research on this site, yelp, and others i have put together a tentative list of places/restaurants to check out. About me: i'm not into clubs (dance or otherwise) or overly high-end food. I like blue collar local flavor and pass times. I'm interested in history, culture and music. A low-key bar or pub where i can play pool or shuffleboard and interact with friendly locals would be the perfect place to end my night. Live music is a huge bonus.

That said, here is what i have:
Front Door- good pizza, i hear, and a wide beer selection.
Goldy's- good breakfast?
Ha'Penny pub
Bardenay- maybe a little too upscale for me, but also a distillery. worth it?
Leku Ona- good basque?
basque market
bar gernika- better basque?
Boise co-op

Am i totally off base on any of these? Anyone have any insight? Recommendations?
I would greatly appreciate any help.
