Last Thursday, February 6 was the official beginning to the Basque Block Thursdays initiative.

Every Thursday Boiseans will have a chance to participate in a Basque cultural event free of charge at the historical Basque Block in the 600 block of Grove Street.

Last week, despite the cold weather, many visited the Basque Museum and Cultural Center free of charge and listened to local Basque musicians. Intermediate Basque language students also joined them for some singing.

Afterwards, the local Basque band Amuma Says No entertained the crowd with their lively music at Leku Ona, a nearby Basque restaurant. The activities will continue every Thursday evening.

The Thursday activities are a joint effort of the Basque Center, Basque Museum & Cultural Center and Boise State Basque Studies, as well as community volunteers. The goal is to have people come to the Basque Block on a regular weekly basis for Basque fun and educational events. The Basque Block website fills in with more details.

Boise has celebrated in a grand way on First Thursdays for several years now, and the Basque Block took part in the monthly festivities.

Boise blogger Henar Chico outlines the upcoming Thursday events in greater detail in the following two blog posts:
