A historic and interesting decor and choices of beverages are in the Old School Liquor Bar in the southeast corner of the Seltice Way-Huetter intersection. It formerly was The Shanty.

The building evidently was originally a school and maybe library, and owners Spencer and Danielle Howell have done plenty to enhance that atmosphere. They've also added many tables for high and low seating, colorful bar seating, games and TVs. A food truck will join the location.

They plan to open 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 26, with hours 3 p.m. to closing Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to closing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Phone 208-930-1444. Check
