The Shady Side of Colorado History

Speaker: 
Randi Samuelson-Brown

 

Known as the "Wickedest Town West of the Mississippi", Denver wasn't shy or for the faint of heart. Prostitution, bad whiskey recipes, illicit drugs and games of chance were rife until 1916.  Join us for an evening of stories, good laughs and a spirited account of just how "bad" things used to be.
