When it was the Giggling goat, had a very destructive fire to the roof, was rebuilt and then open as a bar with a restaurant when it wa first set up as a restaurant with a bar. You could drve by on weeknights and weekends and see that the bar/ restaurant concept fail. we went one ne of the frst nights opend as the Sports Story and you could tell it was mismanaged from the start. Didn't even think to stock tonic water for gin and tonics, staff not trined before hand on new computer menu ordering. food was ok with slow service. Bars are not doing well n Boone these days with no smoking, saw even Adoble closed well before the old limit of 2AM.

Hearing someone else is supposedly going to try and reopen it, hoping is restaurant first and bar second. Something like Jethro's would fit in with the already current bar look of the main room, but featuring food as a restaurant rather than a big bar with limited bar food. Former HyVee manager didn't have any restaurant experience to try and do this and it showed.
