A Basque in Boise

Thursday, May 8: Pintxo class, documentary, and txikiteo in Boise’s Basque Block

Pintxo PoteNABO, along with Boise’s Basque Museum & Cultural Center, will host a pintxo class, the “Echevarriatik Etxebarriara” documentary, and a pintxo-pote (snacking and drinks) on May 8th, starting at 5:30 pm. It will be an eventful night filled with Basque music, lots of good food and drinks, and great talks about the Basques. The cost is $5 for the class and documentary, but bring more for drinks and pintxos during the txikiteo!

Mara Davis, the Ikastola director, will give some basic instruction on the ever-popular Basque pintxos, which we will get to taste, of course. The Basque language students will serve the pintxos, and the attendees will have to ask for them in Basque to learn the names of the ingredients.

Then, director Ander Iriarte will show his documentary “Echevarriatik Etxebarriara”, which has been selected for Donosti’s Human Rights Film Festival. The documentary explores the effects of violence on the Basque Nationalist Left, from the perspective of folks in Oiartzun, Gipuzkoa, the director’s hometown. There will be time for Q&A after the showing.

We will round out the evening with a small txikiteo (bar-hopping) to The Basque Market and Bar Gernika for paella, croquetas, and drinks!
