November 2, 2018 - KQFC
On the radio today with Steve Shannon from KQFC right here in Boise. Here's what we talked about for this upcoming weekend!
1. If you love chocolate...or know someone who does...and enjoy shopping for unique handmade holiday gifts then be sure to check out the CRAFT AND CHOCOLATE AFFAIRE at the Nampa Civic Center Friday and Saturday.
It runs Friday from 5 to 9 pm and Saturday 10 am to 4 pm. It is FREE to the public and family friendly.
They have a Chocolate Bay where you can take your chosen food and give it a dip in their Chocolate Fountain!! A vast array of homemade gifts from LOCAL entrepreneurs gives you the opportunity to find some very unique Christmas gifts!!
2. Are you a snowmobiler? Or do you enjoy movies that highlight some seriously beautiful backcountry...where cars aren't going to take you? Then you need to head to the BACKCOUNTRY FILM FESTIVAL this Saturday night from 7 to 10 pm at the EGYPTIAN THEATRE in Boise. This festival supports the Winter Wildlands Alliance with some amazing films showing backcountry and the snowsports we love to experience there.
There will be live music and a raffle for some great prizes. Tickets are only $15 and you can bring the whole family.
Now...if you are following my BucketList, the Egyptian Theatre is on it! Inauguarated in 1927, it is the oldest theatre in Boise. It is one of the few surviving theatres from the grand cinema and movie palace era here! And it is a lot of FUN! All the JASON BOURNE movies premiered and were hosted right here! If you can't make it to the Backcountry Film Festival keep in mind that they are showing CLASSIC CHRISTMAS MOVIES from now until Christmas!
3. Now, if you are like me you are disappointed that you missed out on tickets to see the LION KING at the Morrison Center. But I am here to save the day! Just head over to the BOISE LITTLE THEATRE this weekend and catch the production of "The Marvelous Wonderettes." Set in 1958, this play shares the ups and downs of Love and Life while serenading you with 50s classic hits.
Cost is $19-$21 and it is family friendly. They have a great cast and it is a really fun theatre!
If you are working on fulfilling your BucketList and are following this Blog then you can check another item off this FRIDAY by visiting the BOISE OLD PENNITENTARY. This is one of your last opportunities this year to enjoy a night tour!
I think touring the Penn at night is the best way to take in this BucketList Item. You can do a self-guided tour or take a historical tour with the staff.
Tours take place very half hour between 6 and 9 Friday Night. It is only $11.34 a ticket, but kids under the age of 13 are not recommended. It is scary! If you can't take the fright, you can still visit every day from Noon to 5 pm and daylight is much better for taking smaller children.
The Penn was a functional prison from 1872 to 1973. The history within the walls is fascinating!
