Re: “Best of Boise 2013

A bit frustrating to try to read the full article. Seems one must click in and out of several categories. Uncle.

Re: “Best Local Shoe Store

Thank you for your local store. You have greet idea of blog posting. Our have good comfort nursing shoes for your listing. Volleyball is one of the most popular sports all over the world. Playing volleyball is really fun. Aside from the fact that it is one good way to unwind, it makes up a total body workout.

Re: “Best Local Bike Shop

As a cycling community, Boise is the complete package: Our town and the foothills at its doorstep offer something for literally everyone who rides. And who doesn't here? NOT swinging a leg over a bike at some point during the year and smiling as we pedal down the greenbelt, trail, or road is a rarity for the vast majority of us. While improvements can always be made, Boise isn't far from being the perfect cycling town. Add to the equation a whole bunch of really nice citizens who value a healthy, active lifestyle, and its no wonder that local bike shops like George's have grown and prospered here. All we have had to do at George's is try to facilitate the growth of cycling in Boise with professional service and quality products. Oh, and put on some great events. Its a simple formula. Being able to share our passion for cycling is a bonus, and its our hope that a little bit of that enthusiasm rubs off on everyone who enters the stores.

Re: “Best Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands

Everyone needs to stand up and tell their own legislators why they support adding the words! As it stands today in most Idaho cities an employer can fire you because they suspect your sexual orientation differs from what they are comfortable with - whether you are straight, gay, or whatever. A landlord might hear a rumor that you might be gay and kick you out of your housing - the reality of who you fall in love with doesn't even really matter. Or a hotel clerk might turn you away when you show up at midnight in a small town, exhausted from driving all day - just because you don't look straight enough or gay enough for their own personal preferences. Add the Words, Idaho! -- from a straight ally who understands we all work, live, and play better when equality of opportunity abounds.

Re: “Best Local Bike Shop

I'd suggest that "Best Local Bike Shop" be categorized under "goods and services," rather than "sports and recreation." You are apparently buying into the long-held notion that bikes are toys. And they are. But they're also transportation for some of us - TOTALLY independent of "sports and recreation."

The winners are all very deserving - three GREAT shops!

Re: “Best Way to Say, 'I'm Outdoorsy and Care About the Environment'

Hilarious!!! (But not surprising.) The choice of shirt is how we can tell the true earth-heads? What if it's being worn by somebody driving alone in a Hummer?

Re: “Best Local Yoga Instructor

She's not the best Yoga instructor in Boise. As a matter of fact, the whole Bikram Yoga craze is a bit of a scam if you research the leader (Bikram Choudhury) of the company. They are out for your money and not your health... that's all I'll say.

Re: “Best Local Tattoo Parlor

This is the worst write up I have ever read for plugging a local business! What does Spongebob Square pants and Patrick Starfish have to do with being the best tattoo shop? Pokemon & blah blah blah sleeping with your cousin? Maybe you should've have went into Chalice Tattoo Studio and interviewed or spoke with the tattooers there to get a better sense at what they specialize in. I personally get tattooed at Chalice and I am embarrassed for them for this write up. This isn't journalism at all! It is someone trying to be funny, almost to the point that it makes fun of the tattoo culture all together. And the funny thing is, you DON'T have to wait awhile. They are opening up a second shop in the Idanha Building and have two tattooers that have open schedules. This is fucked and I am very disappointed in you Boise Weekly. Thanks for nothing.

Re: “Best Net Gain

Actually, the Bryan brothers did not win the doubles match on Sat. They lost and the U.S. team was behind 2-1, not tied with Serbia, after losing that doubles match.

Click this link for scores from the U.S. vs. Serbia match:
