Blues Traveler: River Spirit Casino (81st St. and Riverside Drive)
Personal note regarding Blues Traveler: My friend, Scott Lucero, and I worked at a summer camp in Florissant, Colorado in 1991. We would start the second side (back when people still listened to something called “cassettes”) of the Blues Traveler tape and see if we could make it to the Old Chicago restaurant in Colorado Springs, over 30 miles away down Highway 24 before it ended. It was the perfect “blasting-down-a-high-mountain-road-with-the-stereo-turned-up-as-load-as-it-will-go” music. We did not always make it (see: RVs and Oldsmobiles from Texas were the primary culprits), but we always had a great time trying.
I would like to thank them for supplying the soundtrack for that stupid (but funny) behavior.
