If you are one of those people that starts celebrating the holidays right after Halloween (you know who you are!), you might want to bundle up and head out to the Idaho Botanical Gardens for their annual Winter Garden Aglow. It is a masterpiece of holiday lights that will definitely get you in the spirit and warm your heart while the hot chocolate warms your hands! Admission is only $8-$10, see more at http://idahobotanicalgarden.org/winter-garden-aglow/
November is also the month to honor our Veterans who fought for our freedom! We here at CORE want to say thank you and applaud you for your selfless service. There are quite a few places offering meals or deals to say "thank you" in the Treasure Valley, including Applebee's, Buffalo Wild Wings, California Pizza Kitchen, Chili's, Chipotle, Denny's, Dickey's, Golden Corral, Menchies, Sizzler, and Yard House!
