BEST REASON TO SUCK DOWN GIMLETS, CHAIN SMOKE AND PRETEND THAT FEMINISM NEVER HAPPENED

BEST IRONIC BAR NAME

JO’S SUNSHINE LOUNGE 1115 N. Curtis Road, 208-376-2700, jossunshinelounge.com

BEST WAY TO DRINK AWAY YOUR POCKET CHANGE

WILLI B’S SANDWICH SALOON

225 N. Fifth St., 208-331-5666, willibs.com When you’re parched, broke and need a stiffy, there’s only one way to go: Willi B’s $4 happy hour martini. (In case you’re not much of a martini drinker, we can assure you, that’s the best deal in town. In fact, it may be the best deal in the country.) ADA M RO SE N LUN D
