The holidays are nearly upon us. Though the twinkle of tinsel and cheer of Santa-related tchotchkes started to fill store shelves immediately after Halloween, it doesn't really feel like the holiday season until around Thanksgiving, after which the days until Christmas seem to pass by at light speed. For many, those days are full of parties, shopping, projects, travel, family and (at Boise Weekly, anyway) busier work schedules. For us, there is a benefit to the long hours and early deadlines, though: time off.
For Thanksgiving, Boise Weekly will be closed Thursday, Nov. 23 and Friday, Nov. 24, and to celebrate Christmas and New Years, the office will be closed Friday, Dec. 22-Monday, Jan. 1. For the issues of Dec. 20, Dec. 27 and Jan. 3, the deadline to reserve ad space is Monday, Dec. 11, and ads are due Friday, Dec. 15. The deadline for calendar submissions for all three of those issues is Saturday, Dec. 9.
Movies are another thing that often fill people's minds and schedules this time of year. The holiday season is historically packed with some of the greatest flicks, and this season promises to be no exception. To help you sort through the slew of big screen offerings, Boise Weekly News Editor George Prentice put together a helpful list of films coming out in the next several weeks, including opening dates, genres and whether he thinks it's a movie you can't miss.
Last but not in any way least, we need to make a correction. In "Boise Fall Food Roundup, BW, Nov. 15," we incorrectly reported that Wild West Bakery and Espresso in Eagle will be closing in 2017 and reopening in 2018 as Mama Italia's Trattoria. Restaurant Owner Matteo Raymond explained that Wild West will remain open, breakfast and lunch service will continue as usual and new Italian items will join old favorites on the menu during a transition period. We apologize for any inconvenience our error caused.
From all of us here at Boise Weekly, happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Bring on the holidays!
