  • Document Your Love – Stay the Night – February 14

    January 21st, 2013 by webAdmin

    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!
    Stories recorded by: http://www.storystorynight.org/
    Price of the room includes photobooth picture and audio recording.

    The Modern would like to thank all the Modern Resolutionists who participated in the Modern Resolutions event in December.

  • Modern Hotel and Bar Events

    December 15th, 2012 by Michal

    Renew, Renovate, Resolve

    Look out, here it comes: Hanukah, Christmas, and the end of 2012, then on to a new beginning in 2013, and a chance for renewal.  To help you cope with the madness, the Modern will host several events, beginning with Modern Resolutions.

     Modern Resolutions – December 28 and 29

    On the nights of December 28 and 29, from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Boise vendors and nonprofits will come together at the Modern, dedicated to creating change – and we’re not talking about nickels and dimes. Instead, organizations like Boise 150, Sustainable Futures, Bricolage, The Record Exchange, Hyde Park Books, and the Cabin Literary Center will be setting up pop-up shops in our rooms. This is your chance to grab a drink and peruse these mini-boutiques, some of which could inspire you to be a better person: more fit, more literary, or maybe – with the help of personal trainer, Renu Medispa and Graeber & Company Salon –  much hotter.

    And yes, you can do this all while balancing a beautiful cocktail created by master mixologists and bow tie-wearing bearded gentlefolk here at the Modern Hotel Bar. Giddy up!
    Modern Resolutions is our way of creating fun, even when we can’t check in guests. (Our rooms will be closed for renovations from December 27-30. We’ll reroof, build valances, paint walls, and install new carpet.)
