On Wednesday, July 31, Boise Weekly's annual motherlode of information that we like to think of as your guide to life, the Treasure Valley and everything hits stands. The fourth edition of Annual Manual will be inserted into every copy of Boise Weekly. And for you dedicated digital readers, you'll find a digital copy of the mag here.
This year we decided to honor the fact that communities are defined by the people who make their homes there, not the collection of buildings and roads.
In Hoods we profile the people who are working to enrich their communities, whether it's through the arts or by giving a helping hand where it's needed.
In Food, we highlight some of the movers and shakers in the Boise food scene, as well as offer listings of some of our favorite places to grab a bite.
In Nightlife we take a closer look at local bands and musicians you'll want to be able to say you listened to before everybody else liked them.
Flipping through Culture you can learn more about some of the people who are working to broaden Boise's artistic landscape through theater, the visual arts or film.
Shop we honor business owners and entrepreneurs who are not only stoking Boise's economy, but making sure we all have access to the latest and greatest.
Rec is where we profile the folks who are helping to make our lives a little more fun, as well as offering ideas of where to get away from it all.
And finally, we've once again rounded up the best events of the next year not only with our annual list of what's on the horizon but with extended highlights in each section.
