Now what about those who want to GET UP & GO OUT and try something new?  Or for those who plain and simple cannot or do not want to cook, entertain or go hang out with family?  Well, here’s some local options, and you may not want to wait last minute to decide where to go and what to do![/ultimate_heading][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_single_image image=”12648″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][ultimate_heading sub_heading_font_family=”font_family:Lato|font_call:Lato|variant:300″ sub_heading_style=”font-weight:300;” sub_heading_font_size=”desktop:20px;mobile_landscape:18px;mobile:18px;”]Most popular FINE DINING options for Thanksgiving Day meals in Boise.  Get all dressed up and expect to pay an average of $40 a person at all the usual places offering a variety of unique, fancy, alternative menus along with the traditional turkey meal.  Who you won’t see on the list this year is long time running Berryhill, they’ve decided to give their staff the entire day off to enjoy with their families this year and will be closed.  The trick with these fine dining restaurants, is they require a reservation and some are already sold out, like Emilio’s and The Riverside Hotel.  One would bet that the others would sell out soon, also![/ultimate_heading][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1479423392511{padding-bottom: -50px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”12659″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”12654″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][ultimate_heading sub_heading_font_family=”font_family:Lato|font_call:Lato|variant:300″ sub_heading_style=”font-weight:300;” sub_heading_font_size=”desktop:20px;mobile_landscape:18px;mobile:18px;”]
