The Boise Flower & Garden Show, running March 25–27 at the Boise Centre, hosts myriad lush garden displays, seminars, and shopping opportunities for adventurous green-thumbs. Upon entering, visitors pass through the alpine-lake-themed garden, which sports a meadow, granite boulders, and mountain cabin. The show then lavishes eyes with a buffet of specialty displays—the orchid sale sports a vast variety of delicate stems and expert advice on how to care for them, and a bonsai display teaches adoptive plant parents how to prune shrubs without using a dunce cap.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies, promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use each lady’s body weight and unique fitness level to create resistance that matches her abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions can create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Delia is just as comfortable welding a torch as she is a paintbrush. As an artist, her affinity for metal and enamel media merges to result in a range of whimsical sculptures and fabrications. One of the most impressive is her signature piece Me Deuce, a 14-foot sculpture depicting a bronze snake-haired woman drawing a bow. It's on display at Barbacoa Grill, where it can only be defeated if shown its reflection in a clean plate.
Delia's works are born at FireFusion Studio, where she also passes on her passion for art in social, hands-on classes that encourage creative experimentation. She acquaints beginners with her methods in Introduction to Enameling, in which she details how to fuse glass and metal to create colorful pieces that are organic or geometric in nature. In more advanced classes, she covers how to make enamel pendants by layering foils and blending paint colors, as well as working with liquid enamel and etching designs on copper. She also opens her studio's doors for open-access labs, providing experienced artisans a place to create.
The clubhouse at Les Bois Park serves a roster of classic American noshables to patrons wagering on speedy-steed sprints. Diners can safely bet on snacks such as breaded jalapeño poppers deep-fried and crammed with cream cheese ($7). Or bide time pre-race by devouring a basket of beer-battered onion rings ($8) or by using them to engage in a wager-worthy bout of wrist hula-hooping. Beefeaters will find char-broiled satisfaction with a Back Stretch burger slathered with thousand-island dressing and swiss cheese ($9) or a rib-eye steak ($18) hand-cut, grilled to order, and served with a baked potato and a vegetable medley.
