8 Events Taking Place the Weekend Going into Spring Break in the Magic Valley
This weekend is much needed and highly anticipated. The weather has been wacky, many of us are still looking to recover from the time change last weekend, and St Patrick's Day kicks off the weekend, which is a great way to start any weekend. To add to all of this, much of the area will be on spring break next week, meaning this weekend is the beginning of the break. With a holiday and the beginning of spring break, there are many events taking place this weekend, and here are some to attend to get you out of the house.
Thursday, March 16 - Costaki Economopoulos Comedy Show
Start the weekend off with a good laugh and in a good mood by seeing stand-up comedian Costaki Economopoulos this Thursday. Costaki will be performing at the Canyon Crest Event Center at 7:30 PM and tickets are $25. The show will feature sports talk, divorce, family-friendly comedy, and even a little raunchy. If you need a good laugh this is a show you won't want to miss. Costaki is a frequent guest on the Bob and Tom Show on 98.3 The Snake.
