Buzz Bin 

by MICHAEL BOWEN & r & & r & Treasure Hunt & r & & r & From noon to 5 pm, the day after Thanksgiving, help supplement what local food banks do by bringing a can of food to each of 15 arts shops -- from the Gallery of Thum (in its new Steam Plant location) to Namaska and the Artist's Tree downtown and from Destiny Floral, Pretty Things and Tinman Artworks in the Garland District. Look for the orange-ribbon mystery item in each store, get your tally card signed, and you'll be entered into a raffle.





Fireworks of Another Kind


You could get up at 4 am next Wednesday, Nov. 28, to watch all the fireworks when the CdA Holiday Light Show is recreated for the benefit of Good Morning America. Or you could sleep in and watch it from 7-9 am that same morning on ABC. Or you could just watch the real, live activities at the premiere this Friday night, Nov. 23. But for the real fireworks, read the flaming posts at www.cdapress.com: pro-Hagadone civic boosters, anti-development tree-huggers, Californicators, and all the incendiary devices in between.





The Idaho Jazz


In 1930, when he was 21, Lionel Hampton became the first jazz improviser on vibes to make a record; Louis Armstrong himself had asked "Hamp" to play a little extra. Hampton was 58 when he started a jazz festival somewhere out in Idaho; he would have been 100 years old in April. And that's why it's cool that University of Idaho's Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival received the nation's most prestigious arts award, the National Medal of Arts, at a White House ceremony on Nov. 15.





"Phone Song"


Brian Smith played drums at Shadle Park and UI, and now he's the drummer for TelluRide, which is -- omigod! -- one of 16 bands left in Country Music Television's national talent search. And those guys' video is way better than their third-round opponent's -- so give 'em your vote at madness.cmt.com. Help Brian get to Nashville, and help TelluRide's lead singer get his girlfriend back.





For Janet


Janet Wilder may have retired as artistic director of Ballet Spokane, but you can still see her original holiday classic, The Toy Shelf. Watch all the school kids dance their way into Monsieur Marionette's toy shop on Friday-Saturday at 7 pm or on Saturday-Sunday at 2 pm at the Bing. Tickets: $8. Call 325-SEAT.
