Spacebar Taps

Local Arcades From Tokens to VR

Get off the couch and get some game time in at these cool arcades

Spacebar Taps

Console and PC gaming are fun and everything, but sometimes its more fun to game with friends and family away from home. Put down the controller and shut down your computer, go out to see these sweet local arcades.

The Kid’s Places:

● Pojos

A family owned and operated fun center for more than 40 years, Pojos is an old Boise favorite. Their game selecrion is extensive, complete with points to redeem for prizes. They also still offer some nostalgic games like bumper cars and their old school carousel which continue to be popular. Children’s birthday parties are always a big hit at Pojos.

● Wahooz

Don’t be fooled. Just because they have mini golf, laser tag, go-karts, bowling, and a new, giant, indoor jungle gym, doesn’t mean the arcade isn’t worth a go at Wahooz Family Fun Zone. Earn points for killer prizes, or check out their carnival rides.

The Sports Bars:

● Dave & Buster’s

It was a genius move the men from Dallas made when they gambled everything and put a sports bar in the same space as an arcade. Dave & Buster’s have been rethinking the entertainment industry by simply combining some of its best loved elements into something new. Go out to see them on Milwaukee Ave. near the Boise Towne Square Mall.

● Big Al’s

Fully equipped with arcade games with redeemable prizes, a bowling alley, and a sports bar. Don’t miss the best games and fights on the best sports networks where everyone has a great view of the HD projection screen. This monster stretches across the entire 55 feet of the main bar. If video games or satellite sports channels don’t strike your fancy, relax in the huge pool hall where darts, pool, and a full-size shuffleboard await players.

The Throwbacks:

● The Shredder

Earning its name as a favorite venue among the local music scene, The Shredder hosts events and performances of all kinds. Between sets of comedians or bands, grab a beer and take your pick of any of several classic arcade games from the 80’s and 90’s.

● Grinker’s:

Eagle is home to Grinker’s, an arcade that boasts more than 200 classic coin-operated games, including gems like Ms. Pac-Man, Gauntlet, Tapper, and Dig-Dug. Their website has a list their games, but the list falls short of what you will find inside. Grinker’s offers snacks, food, and drinks, including a variety of beers on tap. Grinker’s is also available
for reservation for private events.

● Spacebar:

This underground tavern also has a number of coin slot video games, pinball machines, and some highly coveted Nintendo consoles. Spacebar serves a ton of different wines and beers, including some from local brewers like Sockeye, Woodland Empire, 208, Laughing Dog, and more.

Virtual Reality Arcades:

● VR1

This arcade will get more than just your thumbs moving. It will activate your body
and your mind with more than 100 virtual reality titles. VR1 prides itself on taking the step into the next generation of arcades as it extends beyond entertainment and into education. Partnering with schools and community organizations, VR1 teaches kids
through virtual reality games based on everything from STEM subjects, to anatomy, to history and the humanities. Find VR1 off old State St. in Eagle.

● VR Tech Lounge

The VR Tech Lounge in Meridian has at least 700 rotating titles that change regularly. They offer packages for team building exercises, birthday parties, and group rates. They are also available for some unique services like virtual photography to help sell your home or rental space.

Base Camp Axe Lanes

Try Something New That’s Cool and Unique in Boise

Challenge your friends, host an event, or join an axe throwing league

Base Camp Axe Lanes

There are bowling alleys and pool halls aplenty, and every bar has dart boards.

But how many places are there where you can show off your axe throwing skills?

Check out Base Camp Pong & Axe. Located at 815 Ann Morrison in Boise, Base Camp is Idaho’s premiere axe throwing and ping-pong facility, complete with private event bookings and league nights.

Hefting axes around and owning your friends at ping-pong all night tends to build an appetite. Don’t fret, there’s a hearty menu with a full bar, great wine selection, and plenty of beer on tap at Base Camp.

Everyone eighteen and up is welcome to come chow down and throw on the axe range. Keep it casual, or keep score, there are lots of ways to play.  

If you want to unleash your inner lumberjack or find your primal warrior spirit, you can’t pass up an experience at Section 37 Axe Throwing Room, another unique sporting range in Boise.

Named after lumberjack tales, Section 37’s faq page explains old-timey logging towns usually had only 36 sections, and the extra one is where creepy and supernatural events took place.

Bring a date, host a special event, or even a corporate retreat.

To get a spot on the busy weekends, or to setup a private party, please make reservations. Beer, wine, and food are welcome, but not available for purchase.

The Treasure Valley is growing and continues to offer more and more to visitors and natives alike. There are plenty of cool and unique experiences to be had right here in town. When you want to GO! Out and try something new, you can Go Out Local.

Farner began Boise Music Week in May 1919. As director of St. Michael’s Episcopal Cathedral, and the Boise Civic Festival Chorus, Mr. Farner connected with his community and created what is now a one-hundred-year tradition to showcase the talents of Boise musicians and performers.

Boise Music Week has grown and evolved over the years, but it has always featured local people who have worked hard to develop skills in music, theater, and dance, both modern and traditional. In the words of Roger Lingle, President of Boise Music Week 2017-2018, “Hundreds of hours put in by many people, all volunteering their time and talents make this week very unique in our area and state.”

Cupids Undie Run

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_single_image image=”40474″ img_size=”400×267″ alignment=”center”][ultimate_heading sub_heading_font_family=”font_family:Lato|font_call:Lato|variant:regular” sub_heading_font_size=”desktop:20px;mobile_landscape:18px;mobile:18px;” sub_heading_style=”font-weight:normal;font-style:normal;” margin_design_tab_text=””]On February 9th, 2019 from 12 PM to 4 PM, downtown Boise is going to have the streets filled with people in their undies. “Why & what the hell is Idaho up to this time?” you may be asking yourself. Well, it’s actually for a wonderful cause and hopefully, I can convince you to put on your undies and brace the cold so you can be a part of it too!

Cupid’s Undie Run is a charity event where you run/walk somewhat of a mile (at your own pace) through the streets of downtown Boise & have an epic dance party once you’re finished, all while in your undies! The purpose of this event is to raise money to find a cure for NF or neurofibromatosis which is a genetic tumor disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 births. There’s also an option to donate if you really want to help out the cause but can’t make the event.

If for some reason you don’t have underwear (definitely not judging), you will be given socks, a t-shirt, & undies for the Cupid’s Undie Run when you sign up. Don’t worry, if running around in your undies isn’t your thing, costumes, pajamas, and tutus are also acceptable! For more information about this event and where to sign up, click here and don’t forget to tag us in all of your photos and hashtag #GoOutLocal #OnlyInIdaho. Check back to our website a couple of days after the event to see a photo gallery.[/ultimate_heading][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column offset=”vc_hidden-xs”][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1543619479557{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ css=”.vc_custom_1543852405321{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”39747″ style=”vc_box_circle_2″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″ css=”.vc_custom_1543852421241{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Jesai Moreno” heading_tag=”h4″ alignment=”left”]Just your average bro
