Admittedly, it's not Boise, but I'm feeling a certain kinship for the impact of the fire in Ketchum. Whiskey's is clearly an institution of state-wide stature, and I find it odd that a former sister-club of one of Boise's edgier nightspots (is DLR owned by the same company that owns China Blue?) brought the fire into existence. Who held the insurance on that building, I wonder...
Me? I can't imagine Sun Valley without Whiskey Jaques. Saw Bruce Willis make a total fool of himself with a harmonica one night. Add in years of Boise bands, northwest road warriors like the Clumsy Lovers and mid level touring bands and you get a idea of the culture that may have been wiped out in the fire. Bummer
Whiskey's total lack of BS was rare indeed in "the valley.". Hopefully it will recover from the flames.
