Re: “Best Local Dinner

How is guacamole considered local fare? Can't remember the last time I purchased a "local" avocado from the farmers market downtown. I think people misunderstood this category.

Re: “Best of Boise 2012

and I recall voting on Baby Supply, Children's Clothing, Specialty Store and Perfumes & Cosmetics?
why do you offer these categories for voting but not publish the results?

Re: “Best Local Twitterer

Too bad @BoiseWeekly's Twitter feed is fed from a media engine, and not an actual person or voice tweeting - it's not unique content. :(

Re: “Best Way to Validate Comfort Food

I don't find this to be something for the local restaurant scene to hang its hat on. Sure, the quality of it may be good, and it's a safe option to serve during these economic times. But unfortunately highbrow chicken and waffles and mac and cheese has become the trendy thing for what passes as finer dining in the area. I just find it so boring and creatively stagnant. The scene needs a swift kick in the ass creatively, be it from non-established ethnic food or food deconstructionists or just risk takers in general. Some of the food trucks have been a step in the right direction, although I'm wondering if that scene will eventually stagnate as well due to lack of risk-taking.

Re: “Best of Boise 2012

Credibility for results? Established. Readability? Smashingly good.

Nice work B-Dub!

Re: “Best Gamble

I know Jo and Stan well. Their effort started long ago with Boise River 2000 in the 90's. Jo started attending Whitewater Park symposiums around 15 years ago, built a rapport with the industry's top people and kept at it ever since. They took the risk based on everything we know today about Boise. People live here for lots of reasons, chief among them is our unmatched outdoor and urban lifestyle. With the best whitewater in the lower 48, our love of our local river and the year around possibilities Boise provides, the development made good sense. In business for over 25 years and really the only year around paddling shop anywhere nearby, plus their commitment to supporting the success of all community outdoor groups from Idaho Rivers United to the City's Adapted Adventure programs, IRS has always made a positive difference.
