Drove to Boise, Idaho Thursday night for our long weekend of fun. Friday we went to the Boise zoo and took a short walk around the surrounding park. I say short walk because it was 100 degrees outside. Literally.
That evening, we went on a Chuck wagon dinner train ride that went along Snake River. They were selling wine bottles for $12 each so, of course, we had to get a few 🙂
And because we didn’t indulge enough on the train, we made a late night run to Black Bear Diner. Love this place!! We had pancakes, chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy. Our bellies were so full but it was worth it.
Saturday we did a wine tasting guided tour. This was a blast! It was just us and the couple who own the tour company, so we got the VIP treatment. We visited 5 wineries and tried over 30 different wines. Got a little tipsy but we weren’t driving so we didn’t care! LOL
Afterwards, the Italian place we tried for dinner was mediocre at best so we headed to Black Bear Diner for dessert. By this time, the owner and some of the workers recognized us and came over to chat. LOL We had shakes, apple cobbler and got a choc cream pie to go then headed to the Shakespeare play “The Secret Garden”. The play was just okay, not my favorite. Good thing the chocolate pie tasted amazing after we got back to the hotel.
And, because we’re kids in a candy store…. we went back to the diner for breakfast on Sunday before heading home. We stuffed ourselves with more pancakes, Bear Claw French toast and hot chocolate. We were so full by the time we left there, I was in a coma driving home.
After splurging in Mexico and again in Boise, I’m surprised I don’t have diabetes now! But, damn, those drinks and food were goooooood! 🙂
