Happy New Year’s Eve, Boise! If you’re looking for a fun way to ring in 2020, there are plenty of local celebrations to choose from.
Here are five events to consider.
Join fellow community members for a favorite local tradition, the annual Idaho Potato Drop at the Idaho State Capitol. This year’s celebration will feature live ice-carving demonstrations, ski and snowboard exhibitions, wrestling matches and live music performances on the main stage. There will be plenty to do for the whole family while you wait for the much-anticipated potato drop at midnight, so be sure to check the schedule for the day’s events.
If you’re looking to bring things down a notch for the new year, Sage Yoga and Wellness is closing out 2019 with intention, meditation and good vibes for yogis and non-yogis alike. Join Sage instructors for a special candle-lit session with an acoustic serenade in the background of your practice.
Ring in the new decade while overlooking downtown Boise from the second floor of the Inn at 500. Partygoers are invited to wear their best 1920s-style costumes and will enjoy appetizers, a buffet dinner and desserts by local Chef Richard Langston. You’ll stay warm in a heated tent while you show off your best dance moves from the roaring 1920s on a lighted dance floor.
Take it back to the 1920s with an authentic, upscale Gatsby-themed evening at The Brickyard restaurant. After you wine and dine, take a seat for a dueling piano show that has been called the “best” piano show in Boise. This event is free to the public, with reservations for dinner encourage, and attendees are encouraged to dress to impress.
The Amsterdam Lounge is inviting you to toast to the new year and enjoy the “last night before prohibition.” Themed costumes are encouraged for a night of live performances, dancing, giveaways and a midnight toast before “giggle water” is outlawed in the new year. Plus, the best-themed costume will win $500.
It was a great year of growth, fun and success for the Boise community and we’re looking forward to another great year ahead. If you’d like to call Boise “home” in 2020, we’d love to talk to you and help make that happen! Contact Team Mandi today.
