In this, the age of 24-hours news coverage, ESPN and constant social media bombardment, it's not enough to turn on the television or walk to the stadium five minutes before the game. All sorts of festivities await the eager fan (or just a casual one who likes complimentary snacks).
If you're planning to party in the park for the Boise Statue University Broncos' home opener on Saturday, Sept. 7, hit up Whole Foods first for the Pre-Game Party, featuring $3 craft beers, wine, grilled grub, yard games and more. You no longer have to be an arm-chair quarterback—you can be one in a parking lot instead.
10 a.m. FREE. Grassy lot on Myrtle next to Whole Foods (401 S. Broadway Ave.), Boise, wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/boise.
