Nov. 26-Jan. 3: Winter Garden aGlow Idaho Statesman file

November is only a week away, when holiday and winter activities start to go on the radar — from Boise’s Ski Swap to Alley Repertory Theater’s “The Golden Girls Christmas Extravaganza” (which, yes, is about the cast of that 1980s-90s NBC sitcom). November features a number of fundraiser film festivals, from Warren Miller (benefiting the Bogus Basin Ski Club) to Lunafest (raising money for Girls on the Run). Wine lovers can check out Sippin’ in the City in Boise’s Linen District or sign up for a panel discussion on making wine in Idaho’s unique climate.
