Boise is … Fired Up For Spring

Bring on the Hoops, Bring on the Noise

It’s finally here. Starting this week, Boise has become a true hub of college basketball. The Big Sky Conference Championships are in town with teams and fans from eight states all across the West. In fact, Boise is already feeling a little March Madness downtown. The games are set for the absolute center of our lively downtown scene at the Idaho Central Arena. The women’s tournament will be held March 7-9, with the championship game on March 11 while the men’s championship will take place March 9-12. The tournament champions will receive automatic berths to the NCAA Division I Basketball Championship. You can find tickets online here, but also consider that the downtown bars will be hopping with live TV coverage and lively crowds. For information about tickets and timing go to 

Spring Means New Openings

As life begins to resemble normalcy, Boise is picking up its pace of restaurant shuffles. On Boise’s Western edge, the much-loved Lemon Tree gourmet sandwich and lemonade shop has opened a new location in addition to its downtown Boise spot. Now the tasty menu will be available in the very same building as another much-loved Boise treat, The STIL ice cream shop, which is likewise adding a shop in the Harris Ranch neighborhood, just upriver from Downtown. And lest you think we’ve forgotten an important food focus, Boise now has a restaurant that focuses on vegans and their diets, while simultaneously offering non-vegans ample menu space. The Alchemist Plant Pub will open downtown, featuring all-plant-based menus, alongside espresso and other beverages.
