DYN-O-MITE BAR BOMBS FOR WILLIS IN IDAHO TOWN

The Dyn-O-Mite has fizzled.

Actor Bruce Willis' year-old Main Street bar, site of his star-studded 40th birthday party last April, closed last weekend.It will not reopen, said a spokeswoman for the company that manages Willis' Wood River Valley ventures. "We didn't get the local business that we'd hoped for," Mary Chapman said.

Willis will concentrate on his other Wood River Valley commercial holdings, Chapman said.

He opened the remodeled Mint in Hailey last July and the refurbished Liberty Theater in December. He is building Shorty's, a combination diner and delicatessen, in the E.G. Willis Building in Hailey. That is scheduled to open this spring.

The Dyn-O-Mite Lounge, one of three Ketchum bars with live entertainment, booked out-of-town acts.
