Look Smart: Boise Weekly SmartCard Party

Wednesday Dec. 5



There aren't many excuses to get dressed up in Boise: the Governor's Ball, a fancy wedding, a court hearing. Boise Weekly is outraged at this clearly discriminatory attitude toward fancy clothes—to be more accurate, we're just looking for another excuse to throw a good party.

That's exactly what we're doing at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, when we celebrate our new BW SmartCard with the Look Smart Party at Idaho Botanical Garden. Why Look Smart? No. 1: We want party-goers to pull out their finest cocktail attire—preferably rocking a 1960s vibe—to party in style. No. 2: You have to be smart to get in to this little soiree. Tickets are limited to just 100, so you'd better be on the ball.

Those lucky 100 who do score one of the $25 tickets will get admission into IBG and its Winter Garden aGlow event, as well as the private party in the garden's heated tent. Inside the tent, party-goers can enjoy a full bar hosted by Willi B's, appetizers from Salt Tears Coffeehouse and Noshery, and paella from The Basque Market, as well as music spun by Stardust Lounge.

In between all that munching and sipping, party guests can slip outside to check out the light display in the garden.

Now, there's one other detail to pay attention to in order to get into the party: Tickets are only available by buying them through the BW SmartCard app. The app is free to download on both iPhones and Androids, and details about how to purchase them are on the site.
