Valentine’s Day! It can be a challenge. You love your sweetie madly; but how to show it on a day so loaded with romantic expectation? A bundle of flowers can’t express just how much you appreciate it when she organizes your stuffed animal collection. A box of chocolates won’t thank her enough for all the times she fed your turtle for you. Before you get Valentine’s Day fatigue and go down in a fiery crash, consider a new, stress-free strategy:
Rent a room at a great price at the Modern Hotel. Then join the talented and creative people from Story Story Night to document your love. They’ll spirit you away to their audio love laboratory and record your story. So testify — that’s right, testify! What made you cross the room to meet her? How did you know he was the one? Stand up and tell your tale of love?
This is a story you can call your own and share with pets, children and in-laws, if you wish. It can be passed down through your family, a testament to your hot romance. You can share it with the world or tuck it away in the catch-all drawer of life.
After your testimony, you and your flame can have your photo taken in our Valentine’s Day photobooth—we promise no hearts or stuffed bears, just an image to remember for a lifetime. Your parting gift is a photo and an MP3 of your own love story, starring you and your cupcake. Then retire to your room for frolic, snacks or sleep — your choice. What joy!

Price of the room includes photobooth picture and audio recording.
Again this year we are blessed with the Treefort Music Festival. Great bands migrate north from the warmth of Austin, Texas and will breeze into town to warm up our city March 21-25.
If you didn’t go last year, I’ll offer some words of wisdom–or what I’m proclaiming to be wisdom. Go to Treefort, indulge yourself. Attending Treefort is like being the first one down the mountain after a fresh snowfall. It’s like being the first water skier on a glassy lake, carving beautiful rooster tails. It is primo. The indie music festival South by Southwest is an aging monster, now in its twenty seventh year. Boise’s own Treefort is your chance to catch a festival in its youth. My advice: be at Treefort when it’s young, instead of looking back and wishing you were there at the beginning. The Modern Hotel still has a few rooms in the belly of the beast, the heart of the action, the hub, baby! We have rooms available with or without discounted passes. Call the Modern Hotel for details.

The Modern would like to thank all the Modern Resolutionists who participated in the Modern Resolutions event in December. The fire dancers, personal trainers, Radio Boise, and the Record Exchange all made this an evening to remember And I must say, Edward’s Greenhouse knocked our socks off with their bed of flowers.
The Boise Sesqui-Shop, a shop put together to help celebrate Boise’s 150th birthday, made a fun presentation, too. If you haven’t had the chance, I suggest that you scurry down to have a peek at their shop on 10th and Main Street. http://www.facebook.com/BoiseArtsandHistory/app_100265896690345
