Tailgate Taphouse to shut down Saturday

 

Ted Challenger’s latest venture will come to an end.

The Boise bar owner purchased the former Cheerleaders Bar & Grill in 2016 and converted into The Tailgate. 

Now that business will fold up its rear lift door and pack away the beer and food for good.

In just two years, the concept evolved from Tailgate Sports Bar & Grill to Tailgate Taphouse.  The location near Ann Morrison Park was tucked away, but hoped to draft off the increased customer base from student housing built in the Lusk St. neighborhood.

“We’d like to thank everyone that supported us over the last 2 years,” the business wrote on Facebook. “We had some great successes and lots of fun! This decision did not come easily, but we believe it’s the correct one at this time.

The last day in business will be Saturday, June 30th.
