On a toasty August evening I watched cyclist after cyclist fly past me as they launched into their Thursday Night Time Trial out in South Boise. These cyclists get together to track their times and training progress by going all out on a 10 mile loop that starts at the corner of Cloverdale and Ten Mile. I don’t know all the details of their efforts, but Sarah does.
Nick and I met for lunch a couple of weeks ago at the Taphouse and ordered a couple of dishes. Since we were on a lunch break we stayed away from the taps (so responsible!). While sitting on the patio getting some quality people watching in, I witnessed one of my most memorable Boise people-watching moments. Around noon a good looking, fit guy (in young twenties?) got off the bus wearing NOTHING but a thong, shoes and a messenger bag. As he strutted down the sidewalk, people tried to sneak cell phone pics of him. It was an amazing moment. As for the food, our review was split.
Thumbs down: the pulled pork sandwich. Just like Josh mentions in his article, it was soggy and fell apart.
Thumbs up: the bacon and pear bruschetta. Fun flavors paired together with nothing being too overpowering. The bread was crisp but not hard, which is always a bruschetta deal breaker for me. I’d order it again.
