If you continue to not know that the Blues Bouquet is now just called the The Bouquet then your stuck and probably still calling Tampa Bay "The Devil Rays." Get your head in the game, son cuz' we got some spring training to cover.
Thursdays are now your night to get ragin' on the dance floor with DJ Revolve. Plenty a brew, many a crew, $1 PBRs, lots of boom-booms and whicky-whicky's. We asked people who where there, "What's up with Hip-Hop Thursdays?"

Hip-hop here? I think it started ... I think about four weeks ago or something like that. It's starting to get a little bit bigger—starting to grow a little bit. We got DJ Revolve down here though—some serious hip-hop always going down for sure.
Is he your favorite DJ?
Oh yeah, by far ever since I've been here, I mean that's my boy up there—always looking forward to seeing him here, and at the Neurolux on Friday nights. I like it here tonight because you get to see DJ Revolve in full form and spinning his own; he doesn't have to take requests from anybody or anything like that. So he's throwing down.
Then tonight should really be called "No Requests Thursday"?
Dude, if you want to request hip-hop, then you can come down and request it.
Occupation: Bartender at The Bouquet
This place is money for anyone who is into hip-hop tonight. These guys are always playing the best stuff anyways and you got the guys going up and free-styling over it.
Any other DJs who come to mind that throw down like this?
No, none that come to mind, not like this. You get to see the break guys come out. I think they are called The B-Boys or something? They get crazy out there on the dance floor. It's just a matter of time before it starts getting bigger. It is starting to form a tradition though.
I think [DJ Revolve] is the best DJ out there. I know him personally and have seen him spin all over town, but this is my first time to see hip-hop here at The Bouquet and I really like it.
Would you rent him if he set up shop at Tates?
Hell yeah I would rent him. We would have a party!

It's just getting under way, we need more support, and what people believe in, actually to embrace what they really care about. A lot of people that don't understand, they don't—but they still like it and they can feel it, but they are scared. They are shy. You got to come out and represent and be a part of it.
You been breaking here since the kickoff?
Definitely, this is what hip-hop is all about you know? The elements—just being a part of it. Not being shy or scared to come out, it's not like it's all G'd out, or ghetto. It is just a bunch of people having a good time.
So there's no ghetto here in Boise we can check out?
There is no ghetto in Boise.
Where are you originally from?
(Laughs) Not really man, it's a cool place.
Just kidding dude. Thanks for your input
You bet. Just trying to blow this place up like it should be.
