Over the years, Boise has gone from a casual city to a business-casual city. Bed-head hair has been encased in mousse, collared shirts are bought pre-wrinkled and the pub crowd has migrated from the corner bar to hotspots like Bittercreek Brewpub and 10 Barrel. That said, every once in awhile denizens of the City of Trees like to dress to impress. Sometimes, Boise likes to veer in the direction of swank, though chances to don formal attire can be few.
If the grime and soggy sneakers of winter have you yearning for cufflinks or a string of pearls, look no further than A Sense of Art: Boise Art Museum Gala at BAM Saturday, March 1, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Appetizers will become hors d'oeuvres, guys will become gentlemen and women will become ladies. Swing in for food and drink, auctions silent and live, and classy fun for you and your lucky date.
Auction items hail from Bogus Basin Ski Resort, Boise Contemporary Theater, ENSO Artspace, Fork, Alan Heathcock, The Modern Hotel and Bar, Trey McIntyre Project and many, many more. Seriously, there are, like, a hundred organizations and individuals donating wares and services to benefit BAM exhibitions, programming and events.
If your tie clip and favorite heels are itching for some use, BAM--as it does for your fine art cravings--can help.
