If you haven't visited Whiskey Jacques' since it burned down in 2008, you're in for a surprise. The only thing you might think you recognize from the original is the air-hockey table. (It won't keep score, which sorta makes it even better.) The entire pub and grill was completely rebuilt as a two-story in 2009 — and it is nice.
I took a road trip there earlier this month to see Alabama rockers Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. As I explain in my Scene column, heading to Ketchum for a ski/concert trip at Baldy/Whiskey's is a cool option for Boiseans.
