The Idaho Food Bank fundraiser event Empty Bowls is a hit with Boiseans every year when it takes over the Grove Plaza on Black Friday. Attendees buy hand-crafted bowls, have them filled with delicious soup by local chefs and then hang out and sip around a giant Christmas tree. If you missed Empty Bowls this year, fear not; you can still snag a bowl (soup not included) for $10 at Idaho Made this First Thursday, and each purchase will provide 50 meals to food-insecure Idahoans. The store is also offering a host of other fun activities, including an outdoor glass blowing demonstration by Sawtooth Glass Project, a You're Weird book signing with Kate Peterson (creator of The Dapper Jackalope), Java drinks and artisan cookies along with its usual selection of handmade local goods. Plus, Santa will visit the Old Boise building from 5-8 p.m.
