Video: Leku Ona readies for big Basque bash

Staff at Leku Ona on the Basque Block in Downtown Boise were in overdrive Tuesday as they prepared for the kickoff of Jaialdi festivities.

The six-day party starts at 5 p.m. Tuesday – and you’re invited.

Tiffany Kalbfleisch, an employee of Leku Ona, gave us a quick tour of the bar, restaurant and hotel.

Leku Ona has created a special menu for Jaialdi. It has a dozen entrees, including red bean and chorizo soup with bread ($8), chicken croquetas ($13), cod fish and fries ($19), squid ($17) and paella ($11).

The restaurant will be serving meals from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. throughout Jaialdi (on the second floor and in the basement banquet room), and the bar will be open until 2 a.m.
