Last Tuesday, it hit me. I haven't left the Treasure Valley since our trip to Winter Carnival in February. I haven't left the state of Idaho since December. Don't get me wrong, I love it here but I'm starting to get a little stir crazy.
Over the last few weeks, several Downtown Boise Bars got the thumbs up from the same organization that shut them down in late June. Now 12 more hope to gain "specific permission" from Central District health to welcome back patrons.
My iPhone calendar broke my heart this morning. It reminded me that I'm supposed to be on vacation today. I'm supposed to be getting on a plane to Denver this afternoon. I'm supposed to see my favorite band at the most beautiful venue in the country tomorrow night.
You know that birthday party you were planning? Or that wedding that you've already pushed back SEVERAL times? Get ready to un-invite a great deal of your guests or cancel it all together. Central District Health has voted to clamp down on social gatherings.
Movie theaters in the Treasure Valley were allowed to re-open on May 30 when the state moved into Stage 3 of the Idaho Rebounds plan. Larger chains, like Cinema West, weren't ready to re-open until they had new releases. Those are on the way and so is the re-opening of Village Cinemas!
