Dear Boise City Department of Arts and History and Downtown Boise Association. We'd like to point out a small spelling error. Your upcoming two month-long celebration Fall for Boise should more accurately read Summer for Boise. Because, even though the temps are doing some cool-down, heat-up wacky stuff, there's just no way that it's already fall. We haven't yet had our fill of pool-splashing, patio-relaxing, sundress-wearing, barbecuing summertime action.
But misspellings aside, "Fall" for Boise will host a free kick-off party on the Grove on Friday, Sept. 3, from 5-7:30 p.m. You can rock out with the Boise City Band and emcee Ken Bass from 94.9 The River while chowing down on food and slugging back drinks from local vendors.
If you prefer to do your Grove partying with a touch more class, head down on Saturday, Sept. 4, from 7-10 p.m. for the Harvest Moon Dinner, presented by the Capital City Public Market. This year's six-course dinner of local foods and wine will feature chefs from restaurants like Locavore, Brick 29 and Red Feather Lounge. A wine cocktail hour kicks things off at 7 p.m., and dinner gets going at 8 p.m. with tunes from the Ben Burdick Trio.
