Is it just us, or does "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" seem a bit whiney? Asking to be taken out and bought assorted game-time goodies like Cracker Jacks and peanuts?
Well, today, you can counterbalance the neediness of the classic ballpark song by taking others to witness the all-American sport. The Boise Hawks will take on the Tri-City Dust Devils at 7:15 p.m., and you can bring the whole family without breaking the bank.
The Hawks run Family Funday Sundays throughout the season. Bring in a nonperishable food item and $34 will not only net you better snacks than peanuts and Cracker Jacks (hot dogs and Pepsi products) but four seats, as well. If you break it down, and that's $8.50 per person for food and hours of bat-swinging, base-running, possible-foul-ball-catching fun.
And tonight's family fun can involve the entire gang—including beloved pets. It's also Zamzow's Bark in the Park night, so get there early and enjoy a pre-game dog parade. You can also bring Fido to the park for $10 (human included) and sit in a special pet-friendly section, but take the heat into consideration.
The kids' park at the stadium will transform into a dog zone, with product samples and activities for pets and owners. Prizes will be awarded for pet and owner look-a-likes and pups can play fetch on the field following the game. Call 208-322-5000 for more info.
