OTV: Sad To See Willies Building Go

Re: Fire destroys Coeur d’Alene bar Willies (formerly Eduardo’s, Peabody’s, etc.)

OrangeTV: Anyway, I never really hung out at Willie’s, but it’s always sad to see a building with a lot of local history go up in flames.I spent many lunchtimes there in earlier times for Eduardo’s all you can eat taco bar. Also, I remember that Peabody’s was the hottest spot in town during the ‘80s before I was old enough to even try sneaking in. I have vague memories of one of my mother’s friends managing the place when I was even younger, but I don’t think it was called Peabody’s at the time. Or maybe it was. Anyone know the building’s history prior to Peabody’s?

Question: Do you have a connection to the building that burned over the weekend on Lake Coeur d’Alene Drive that housed Willie’s (and before that Eduardo’s & Peabody’s)?
