Looks like the Hoppie Building’s First Friday event is spreading down the avenue with the creation of Vista Bench First Friday! Boise’s Energize Our Neighborhoods has joined forces with Vista merchants who have been meeting to discuss promoting the local businesses to create the monthly event.


Vista Bench First Friday is a great way to explore the neighborhood and check out deals


Utilizing #VistaBenchFirstFriday on social media, the charter members of the new Boise Vista Neighborhood Association are offering specials and activities to the neighborhood while reaching out to other businesses.


What does the Vista Bench have to offer this Friday?


  • Quinn’s Restaurant & Lounge (1005 S. Vista) wants to see your selfies! Visit participating First Friday businesses, post on Facebook or Instagram with #VistaBenchFirstFriday, and show your server or bartender your selfie for 10 percent off your meal or a half-priced appetizer.

  • Canine Design (2621 W. Camas St., just off Vista behind Quinn’s) is giving out doggie bags full of treats at a pup-friendly meet-and-greet. Show that you’ve visited two other participants with social media, business cards or the #VistaBenchFirstFriday passport and you might win a great t-shirt or salon spa services for your four-legged friend. Book an appointment and get 20 percent off.

  • Moxie Java (1122 S. Vista in the Vista Village) is back and ready to party on First Friday! They’re offering 50 cents off a small drip coffee or hot cocoa.
