Been wondering what exactly the "Superstars of Country Live in Concert (The Ultimate Tribute)" entails? According to the blog of one of the backup singers, it entails "celebrity impersonators of Reba, Garth, Faith and more." BC Entertainment of Las Vegas also lists Charlie, Wynonna, Toby, Tim, Dolly, Kenny, Shania and Trisha as possibilities; a half-dozen impersonators appear each night. Tickets for the July 6-15 shows at Northern Quest are $30, though kids get in for half-price at the four scheduled weekend matinees. Visit

A Whiff of Clematis

All day this Sunday, get a glimpse of seven gardens "ranging from small and quaint to grand and sweeping" in the Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene areas in the 10th annual CdA Garden Club's Garden Tour. Tickets -- $17 on July 8; $15, before -- are available at Petal Pushers Nursery, 1844 N. Government Way; the DO It Center, 1217 N. Fourth St.; and all CdA-area garden centers. Call (208) 664-0987.

Harold in Da House

Harold Balazs is known all over Spokane. So why is he appearing this Sunday at an art gallery (37 miles north of Priest River, Idaho, 91 miles from Spokane) and literally at the end of a dead-end road? Because the Entree Gallery presents architectural charm and a tradition of bringing the pleasures of fine art to an area that's sprouting more and more art-conscious patrons. If you can't shake one of Harold's big hands at Entr & eacute;e this Sunday from noon-2 pm, then visit or call (208) 443-2001.

Stupid Pseudo-Food Critic

Idiot sets himself up to judge dinner-theater fare ("Heartbreak Express," 6/28/07), and then this. Those "bland" mashed potatoes he ate were actually grits -- and they were meant to be blended with the "too salty" collard greens. Stick to theater, boy.

And a Hoop in Every House

Due to a slight but pointedly significant typo in one of our Hoopfest stories last week ("Bragging Rights"), we overstated the number of public basketball hoops per capita in Indianapolis. There is one hoop for every 2,977 Indy citizens (not 2.977).
