From Bouquet, to Bucket, to Bouquet, to Bye-Bye • Local Legend Reunion


From Bouquet, to Bucket, to Bouquet, to Bye-Bye

Last week, now-former Bouquet owner Erich Walton, sold the bar. In an e-mail to Boise Weekly, he wrote that he "ended four years of a wild ride ... I am grateful I had an opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning my own business."

He stated, "The new owners are going to bring about a lot of new changes and I believe one of them is definitely going to turn some heads." The new owners could not be reached for comment.
