The Mend Project’s third donation project, Spectacled will join Modern Art 2009, for a pre show. Spectacled, is a project dedicated to raising an awareness of the some 36 million people living across the globe, who are needlessly blind. The group is accepting used eyeglass donations, which will be a part of a larger installation- September 3rd in the Linen Building. Along with the eye wear drive, artists are being asked to create their own sight altering device. Handmade eyeglasses will be auctioned off and proceeds will benefit Unite For Sight.
Eyeglass donations can be made in room 114- Modern Art 2009. Donations can also be made at the Modern Hotel, Flying M Coffee House and Garage, The VAC and Trey McIntyre Dance Studios up until Sep. 3, 2009.

EAT, DRINK, STAY
(BOISE, Idaho) – 2009 – The Modern Hotel and Bar, located in Downtown Boise’s Linen District, celebrates the Grand Opening of the Modern Kitchen on April 3 at 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Remi Courcenet, food and beverage manager, will present the new Modern fare, offering hotel guests and locals the Treasure Valley’s best in seasonal food. The Modern promises this won’t be your typical bar food. Menu items will range from healthy and fresh to sophisticated – and decadent. There is something for everyone, fig and goat cheese tartines, warm paninis, fresh salads, imported cheeses, and tempting tiramisu or chocolate mousse.
In the spirit of green living, Courcenet will draw from local farmers and vendors, focusing on fresh ingredients that will change with each season. The menu is complemented by an outstanding seasonal wine list and cocktail menu. Modern staff can suggest the best accompaniment to your evening meal, whether it is a shaken martini, a smooth red wine, or great regional beer. With the addition of food, the Modern hopes to make our great bar better.
Menu prices are reasonable, ranging from $4 to $14. We respect the times we live in and want to offer a quality product for a reasonable price. There is no reason food can’t be tasty, inexpensive, sophisticated, and fun.
The Modern menu is frequently updated and available online at http;//blog.themodernhotel.com.
The public is welcome to join us for the Grand Opening, and ribbon cutting with Mayor David Beiter. The ribbon cutting will take place at 5:00 pm. Wine tasting and refreshments will be served.
