Furthermore, Boise is one of the premier cities to find a job right now, since it was named the second best place for businesses and careers by Forbes Magazine.

First Thursdays

<p>On the first Thursday of every month, dozens of businesses (about 40, to be exact) in downtown Boise offer sweet deals, live music, art and entertainment to throngs of pedestrians from morning 'til late night. This event is so heterogeneous that it's difficult to summarize, but highlights for the upcoming October 3rd event include board game challenges at All About Games, films on the lawn at American Clothing Gallery, and endless hors d'oeuvres and happy hours.</p>

Boise Philharmonic

<p>Few things are more mind-blowing than an orchestral wall of sound, and Boise's own Phil is no exception. To have such accessibility to beautiful music is an enormous privilege to Boise's residents, who snatch up season tickets for unlimited easy listening. In these next few months, Boiseans look forward to Mozart's Symphony No. 40, a poignant tribute to Anne Frank, and an Eastern European Cello Concerto. The Philharmonic also runs a highly competitive Youth Orchestra, drawing prodigies to this unexpected musical nucleus.</p>

Basque Heritage

<p>Boasting one of the largest Basque communities in the United States, Boise offers myriad attractions to educate the city's residents about Basque ethnicity and tradition. The stretch of road on Grove Street between 6th&Ecirc;and Capital has been dubbed "Basque Block" for its collection of sports clubs, museums and eateries highlighting the people and language of the Spanish-French border. After working up an appetite at the Fronton Building's Basque handball court, locals like to munch on chorizo sandwiches and wine at Gernika, a Basque gastropub. Don't miss Gernika's Beef Tongue Saturdays, where $7.25 gets you the traditional Basque dish of tender beef tongue in a garlicky tomato sauce with crusty bread.&Ecirc;</p>
