Chandlers: Boise’s Top Fine Dining Establishment

According to Forbes Magazine, the fastest-growing city in the U.S. is Boise, Idaho. The Boise metropolitan area encompasses Ada, Boise, Canyon, Gem and Owyhee counties and, since 2010, has increased by 100,000 inhabitants to over 690,000—an astounding jump of 14.5%.



Anyone unfamiliar with Boise—a name derived from the French word boisé, meaning “wooded”—may wonder what is driving this mass influx of people to Idaho’s capital and most populous city. According to a profile on Livability.com, it cannot be attributed to a single reason—instead, it is a “rich collection of amenities” including natural beauty, great neighborhoods, top schools, public safety, rich outdoor opportunities and much more.


For anyone preparing for a visit or move to the Boise area, TripAdvisor includes these activities atop its “Things To Do” lists:


  • Boise River Greenbelt: The 25-mile, tree-lined pathway meanders along the banks of the Boise River through the heart of the capital city and its suburbs. The lush riparian areas provide scenic views, extraordinary wildlife habitat and breathtaking walking, biking and hiking excursions.


  • Basque Museum and Cultural Center: Idaho is home to one of the largest populations of Basques outside Spain and, in Boise, approximately 10% of the population is of Basque-heritage. The mission of Boise’s Basque Center is to preserve, promote and perpetuate Basque history and culture, both in and beyond Idaho.


  • Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial: This 0.81-acre park is an inspirational and contemplative tribute to Anne Frank’s unwavering faith in humanity. Located adjacent to the Boise River Greenbelt, the Memorial integrates the beauty of natural elements—stone, water and native greenery—with a message of hope.


  • World Center for Birds of Prey: The Center is the headquarters for The Peregrine Fund, an international non-profit known around the world for its conservation and recovery efforts of endangered and rare raptors. It houses breeding facilities for endangered birds, an interactive Interpretive Center, extensive library containing the Archives of Falconry and live demonstrations with falcons, eagles, hawks and owls.


  • Old Idaho Penitentiary: The Old Idaho Penitentiary opened its doors in 1872, nearly two decades before Idaho was granted statehood (1890) and housed some of the Wild West’s most desperate criminals. With tours of the thirty historical buildings, special events and educational exhibitions, visitors can relive the Old Pen’s dynamic past of scandals, daring escapes and executions…and decide for themselves if it is, in fact, haunted!


After a busy day of sightseeing and enjoying all Boise has to offer, make a reservation at Chandlers Steakhouse. TripAdvisor, OpenTable, Wine Spectator and innumerable other publications name Chandlers the top restaurant in Boise. Chandlers is the area’s ultimate fine dining establishment, with prime steaks, fresh seafood and nightly live music Boise residents perennially vote as “Best of Treasure Valley.”


About Chandlers

Located inside Hotel 43, Chandlers brings guests world-class service, ambiance that is second-to-none and, of course, the most delicious steaks and seafood in the state. When asked their favorite steakhouse Boise residents resoundingly name Chandlers.

Social media is weird... I don't have to have a reason [3/19/18]
Social media is just weird sometimes. I'm not sure it is the most healthy... in fact, it probably isn't healthy at all for some people.
*Random person, I've never met or seen or talked to anywhere*
No, I don't want to be your friend (I don't have to have a reason!)
No, I'm not being rude (Again, I don't have to have a reason!)
Yes, I know I'm a big girl, and all your "sweet" and not so sweet words of why I'm your type of person are not a compliment, no matter what you think they are. They are out of line, random, unwanted, and just disgusting. Anyone who does this, please stop! We don't actually like it.
A true compliment is one thing, but please stop the fetish ones. I am not your fetish. I'm not your fatty fetish, I'm not your mental health fetish, I'm not your anything fetish. You're not entitled to me, not entitled to say these thing and you shouldn't be offended when I ignore you or block you, or when I tell you point blank to stop saying stuff. No, I shouldn't feel flattered... honestly? You really think that? I won't fall for it because of low self esteem/self worth or whatever you think.
This does happen more than you think and not just on Facebook. This is why I've stopped looking for penpals.
*Random stranger who might mean well*
You came out of nowhere. I don't know you and I'm sure you are a kind person.
I appreciate your concern. I know I talk about mental health and social anxiety and you want me to know I'm not alone...thank you. I wish you realized that your constant messages, every single day makes me feel more social anxiety, and you keep messaging if I don't answer the first time... There are times I don't answer my bestest friends for days, even months... You mean well, but I don't know you. I can't tell you to stop, either, because that makes me feel worse. (You might even be a kid, I can't tell by your photos.)
*Person/stranger who are not so random*
Yes, I will be your friend if we've talked and got to know each other before adding each other.
Yes, I would love to follow/subscribe back if you are not just a person who follows/subscribes and ditches once I do the same. (People on blogs and subscribing platforms like YouTube.)
*For everybody*
Do not talk to me if I am reading a book (this includes on my Kindle or phone!) or if I have headphones on. These are clear signs that I want to be left alone/need space/need me time. Wait until I put the book down, or at the very least when you see me finish a chapter (If you're hovering over my shoulder that close.)
Retail workers... I'm good. Please don't talk to me as soon as I walk in. I know it is your job... I know it won't stop. I just wish businesses were more friendly to people with sensory issues. This goes double for retail workers who jump in your face regardless if you are blasting music into your ears via big noise canceling headphones. Um... stop.
Thanks for asking, but that is personal. I'm allowed to not have to explain every little thing. I'm allowed to say "it's personal" if you ask me something I don't want to answer.
I don't want to go to your event (I don't have to have a reason)
If I want to go to your event, I'm allowed to leave early, or sit in a corner and be quiet, or play with my sensory tools (I don't have to have a reason)
I don't want to hug you right now (I don't have to have a reason)
I don't want to talk to you right now (I don't have to have a reason)
I'm unfriending you on Facebook/wherever (I don't have to have a reason, and we can still be friends in real life, but perhaps you only post things that cause me harm, like a bunch of animal cruelty posts, or your views are different from mine and you constantly post stuff I don't like to read/see 24/7...etc. But again, I don't have to have a reason, and I don't have to tell you why if I don't want to.)
We have to part ways as friends, in real life or on social media. This rarely happens with people I really know well, just saying. Some people just end up being toxic, no matter how much you might care for them or love them. If you are finding they make you feel worse... you are allowed to part ways. You can tell them why if you want or if they ask you, you can tell them, but you don't have to if you don't want to. Though talking could fix a problem you're having with them, but sometimes it won't help.

Riven - Roan Parrish

Theo is a rockstar with all the fame that it comes with.  Meeting Caleb changes everything.  When he meets someone who he could finally see a future - will the exposure ruin all he has gained?


Caleb has been the guy on tour.  He does not need it again.  Writing music is satisfying on many levels.  Then he meets someone who opens up that closed door.  Is there a future for an old musician?


These two are meant to be.  I loved reading about them finding their way.  Characters so unique, that they have to fall apart to come together.  Really hoping there is more to this story and we will see this couple again.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Life Of Bliss - Erin McLellan

Todd is in a place where he feels like he is both in a rut, and ready for something new.  He needs to decide if he is going to keep his current affair a secret.  Will he be able to meet his new guy halfway to a new future?


Victor is all in if Todd even gives him a hint.  They have been secretly hooking up for a while now.  Then something happens that puts how they feel to the test.  Secrets have a way of getting out......


This was such a fun read.  The characters had such heat!  I loved the banter and angst between them.  I hope to see them again in future stories.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
