1. Boise Art Museum has a unique exhibit on display right now and over the next few weeks. Exploring the global culture of consumerism, South Korean artist Jae Yong Kim showcases his art show DONUT EVER FORGET ME. This features hundreds of handsculpted and painted ceramic donuts.

*** BucketList Adventure for this week **
Looking for a quick afternoon or evening road trip to get out of town and check something off the Idaho BucketList...then head up to Idaho City and visit Diamond Lil's Steakhouse. Only about an hour drive out of Boise, its a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner and emerse yourself in Idaho History.
During the Gold Rush Era in Idaho, Idaho City was the largest town in the territory. The gold rush of the 1800's produced more than 250 million dollars worth of gold that was pulled out of the Boise Basin. Idaho City still thrives after over 100 years. It is full of remnants of Idaho's glorious history.
One such remnant is Diamond Lils Steakhouse where their world famous Money Bar has the largest collection of pre-1928 paper money in the world. The room is literally covered with these bills and other historical memorabilia...plus the food is fantastic! They have fantastic burgers and they cook up one of the best ribeye steaks I have ever had!
After lunch or dinner, take a walk around town on planked boardwalks and check out the historical old jail, school house, and cemetary. Makes for a great day trip!
Have a great week Idaho!
