The Idaho Statesman reports that two locations of Flying Pie in Boise will close starting Jan. 13 so that 54 current and former employees and eight guests can go to Costa Rica. The guests paid for a portion of their costs.

The workers of the State Street and Fairview Avenue locations had been investing 10 percent of their tips toward a trip to Hawaii since the mid-1990s. The pizzeria pulled the money out last year after deciding to go to Costa Rica instead.
