Dine Out Boise

Ever wanted to sample a different set of restaurants, or join the fun when a familiar favorite tries something new? You belong at Boise Restaurant Week, starting this month. If you’ve ever wanted a reason to come try something new, this is the time for it. Start by looking through the menus posted online. From there you’ll be able to make a game plan. Check to see if reservations are necessary, or if the restaurant is keeping new hours or offering only takeout. When you go, be sure to order off the “Restaurant Week” menu, and help the servers by telling them you’re coming in for Restaurant Week specifically. That helps the restaurant track who’s trying what, and you’ll be eligible for some prizes or some other incentive. And don’t forget: Share a photo of your meal from a participating Dine Out Downtown Boise, restaurant on social media and be sure to tag @DowntownBoise in the photo AND use #DineDowntownBoise in the photo description.

Creature Comforts at Boise Airport

Travelers who visit the Boise Airport will notice two new comfort zones: Just past the security checkpoint is a service animal relief area and a new lactation room. The lactation room is dedicated solely for those who wish to use a private and sanitary environment for nursing and pumping. The room includes a sink for hand washing, changing station and chair. The service animal relief area is a pet restroom within the terminal offering four-legged travelers a space to relieve themselves on artificial grass. This eliminates the need for passengers having to exit the terminal and pass through the security checkpoint a second time. The service animal relief area and lactation room are both required by the FAA for medium hub airports, which the Boise Airport will become later this year.
