As the clock strikes midnight and Boiseans welcome in a new year, one local cocktail hotspot will shut its doors for good. The Lobby's owners are said to have sold the bar's lease, and a new restaurant is rumored to be taking its place.
For bartender Ben Hart, it's an unhappy time.
"Yeah, I'm sad and looking for a job," said Hart, who has been with The Lobby since it opened in 2009.
Boiseans can say goodbye to the tricycle race haven with a $20 all-you-can-drink (responsibly) special tonight, beginning at 9 p.m.
