This Weekend North Idaho

Hallelujah and happy Friday! What. A. Week.

Tonight is Art Walk from 5-8 p.m. The Arts and Culture Alliance posted a full schedule that includes locations and artists on their Facebook page. Be sure to get out and support our local businesses and artists!

Arsenic and Old Lace
Arsenic and Old Lace is still playing at the Lake City Playhouse through May 18. It’s about two old ladies who “love to serve up a nice glass of wine and arsenic to their guests with just a pinch of cyanide.” Their nephew discovers what his aunts are hiding while dealing with his crazy brothers – one of which is a murderous psychopath and another who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.
