It was 94º in Boise yesterday and there's no doubt that summer has arrived early in the Treasure Valley. Summer wine tastings, road races, outdoor live music, beer festivals, local food and cocktails on downtown patios, floating the river...I can't wait to do it all in this beautiful city I get to call home.
So many of my friends and family back in Ohio don't realize that Boise offers tons of opportunities to play hard. They get off the plane at BOI and instantly ask "Where's the potatoes?" I just shake my head at them.
When I was home for Christmas two years ago, they showed this video during the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl that I was watching at a restaurant with my dad and his girlfriend. People sitting around us probably thought I was losing my mind because I was over joyed and yelled "that's my Boise!" It's a great reminder of why I love this city so much. I just had to re-share it as summer approaches!
