We're pretty shameless around here about pimping the BW Card. Ask any friend/lover/acquaintance/mailperson of a BW staffer how many times they've heard a spiel about the glorious perks of BW Card ownership, and they'll be quick to roll their eyes. Well, fine. We're officially done telling you about all the great deals you're missing out on. Now we're just going to rub it in your face.
On Tuesday, Dec. 7, from 6-9 p.m., we're throwing an exclusive party for BW Card-owners to congratulate them on being such attractive, awesome, early adopters. Don't have a BW Card and still plan on crashing our party? You're going to have to pony up for full-priced admission to Idaho Botanical Garden. Lame.
Here's what you can expect at our party: live music, free food samples from BW Card restaurants like Mai Thai, El Gallo Giro, Willi B's and Solid, a cozy heated tent, and enough free wine and beer to take the bitter edge off as you wander around the fantastically lit-up botanical garden. To purchase a BW Card of your very own, call Office Manager Shea Sutton at 208-344-2055.
Speaking of the BW Card, we recently had a new member sign on: Great Harvest Bread Company on Fairview Avenue. The franchise bakes its own freshly milled whole-grain breads from scratch each day using local Idaho honey. But that's the yeast of their offerings (no bun intended): Great Harvest also has muffins, cinnamon rolls, cookies, granola, fruit bars and made-to-order sammys.

And finally, in better-late-than-never, used-to-be-on-the-BW-Card-news, Jeffrey's Next Door, which was situated next to the recently shutdown Ves's Broadway Bar, closed its doors at the end of October. But the good news for fans of Jeffrey's downhome cooking is that chef and owner Josh Jeffrey is now taking his talents to Eighth Street wine shop Grape Escape. Jeffrey has big plans to revamp the menu, bringing in his own recipes, specials and soups.
