Bosnia Express brings the flavors of Bosnia to Boise through lunches and nightcaps alike. Before the restaurant undergoes its nocturnal transformation into a nightclub and neighborhood bar, cooks layer hearty paninis with thinly sliced meats and vegetables, as well as season gyro meat that’s ready to nestle inside pita pockets. In addition to making fresh sandwiches and pouring drinks, they stock products from overseas, such as Bosnian, Turkish, and Mediterranean snack cookies, pickled vegetables, hair products, and Pavlovic Ointment, whose lid automatically opens whenever a bell rings.
Sallie, the current owner of Hollywood Market Yoga, found an 112-year-old building and converted it into a yoga studio. She kept the market's mantra, "Happiness is spoken here," for her yoga studio. At Hollywood Market Yoga, muscles stretch a little deeper. Heated studios allow muscles and connective tissue to warm up slowly, which can result in deeper stretches and less risk of injury during signature Vinyasa and Bikyasa flow classes. Hollywood Market Yoga also offers Yin classes, a relaxing style of yoga that focuses on stretching. As muscles breathe sighs of relief, sweat drips from pores, allowing the body to flush toxins out of the system during purifying poses.
The frozen-treat machines that line the walls at U-Swirl Frozen Yogurt's three Idaho locations churn out up to 20 flavors ready to be buried under heaping scoops of self-serve toppings. Patrons can fill their cups to the brim with velvety swirls of strawberry, chocolate, or Irish mint before capping off each chilled peak with toppings that include fresh fruit, candy, kids' cereals, and chocolate sauce. The live cultures nestled within each ounce ($0.39) of frozen yogurt can bolster digestive function and immunity, and its calcium can fortify bones and keep snowmen’s innards chilled long into the spring.
In 1977, Cheryl Wear opened World of Nutrition; her daughter, Kris, joined her full-time after graduating from high school.

Seasoned barkeeps fill glasses with the aromatic pours from a rotating selection of 12 wines, and the cellar stocks a slew of bottled vintages from Idaho wineries to far-flung international locales. Guests can also indulge in sips of 38 domestic and international beers. It's all a part of the new ownership at Corkscrews, who complement their libations with a freshly concocted menu that showcases pizza, salads, a spread of cheeses, and desserts, from cheesecake to ice cream with almonds. On top of filling Corkscrews' cozy environs with daily live entertainment, the owners enjoy renting out the facility and its team of wine handlers for private events such as holiday parties and Flat Earth Society meetings.
Preece Designer Chocolate hand-dips and drizzles its traditional, truffle, and signature-flavored fillings in rich chocolate made from cocoa beans harvested by farmers on the Ivory Coast. Caramel coats triple-chocolate nougat in the Chocopolitan ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8), and the Bordeaux ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8) encases brown sugar buttercream into a chocolaty sarcophagus befitting of sweet-toothed royalty. Whereas the Blue Velvet melds blue cheese and chocolate ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8), the Velvet Hammer piles caramel, coffee, and chocolate atop one another ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8). Additionally, salty and sweet flavors meld in potato chips smothered in chocolate ($6.50/6 oz.) offer a tastier treat than a peanut-butter-and-jellyfish sandwich.
