I moved up to Washington about six years ago when I was twelve with my mom, looking to move back down soon. Been super homesick. I grew up in Woodland Park but don't really want to live there again (no offense to anyone who lives there). I was looking at Tawaoc and Cripple Creek but still unsure. I have my bartender's license, does anybody know any good small towns that are new-person friendly? Thanks!

Sounds like you are 18 (moved when 12, about 6 years ago), which makes me wonder: Can a person age 18 legally tend bar in COLO?

Nope, have to be 21. Also, the OP apparently is looking at gambling areas. He needs to study geography. Towoac is on the the Ute Mountain Indian Reservation. He would have to live in Cortez if he could work there (which he can't until he is 21). All of the gambling towns have legions of people already trying to get jobs in this moribund economy--people of legal age plus a lot of years with established work histories. He's pipedreaming.

Wrong Jazz, you only have to be 18. I, and couple coworkers, were tending bar at 18.

You are partially right. From the Colorado liquor regulations (my emphasis added in bold):

Quote:
On-premises Liquor Licenses: Malt, vinous and spirituous liquor may be handled, dispensed, or sold (this includes wait staff and bartenders) by anyone who is at least 18 years of age and under the on-premises supervision of a person who is at least 21 years of age with the following EXCEPTIONS: in Retail Liquor Stores and Taverns which do not regularly serve meals, malt, vinous and spirituous liquor may only be sold by persons who are at least 21 years of age. A person of any age may bus tables or handle empty alcohol beverage containers. A person must be 21 years of age to possess, purchase or consume beer, wine or spirits.
Casino employees are required to be 21. From Sec. 12-47.1-103, Colorado Revised Statutes:

Quote:
(11) "Gaming employee" means any person employed by an operator or retailer hosting gaming to work directly with the gaming portion of such operator's or retailer's business, which person shall be twenty-one years of age or older and hold a support license. Persons deemed to be gaming employees shall include, but shall not be limited to:

(a) Dealers;

(b) Change and counting room personnel;

(c) Cashiers;

(d) Floormen;

(e) Cage personnel;

(f) Slot machine repairmen or mechanics;

(g) Persons who accept or transport gaming revenues;

(h) Security personnel;

(i) Shift or pit bosses;

(j) Floor managers;

(k) Supervisors;

(l) Slot machine and slot booth personnel;

(m) Any person involved in the handling, counting, collecting, or exchanging of money, property, checks, credit, or any representative of value, including, without limitation:

(I) Any coin, token, chip, cash premium, merchandise, redeemable game credits, or any other thing of value; or

(II) The payoff from any game, gaming, or gaming device;

(n) Craps table personnel and roulette table personnel; and

(o) Such other persons as the commission shall by rule determine.

SheridanL - Thank you for your suggestions, I had family in Cripple Creek and that was one of my most outstanding choices.
And yes, I know I would have to live in Cortez to work in Tawaoc. I wasn't looking at working there, I'm looking for some place to live that's a little out of the way. I looked up population and general info about the town, I know it's nearly all Ute tribals there and that it's mostly casinos, I am well aware the legal age all across the US is 21 to work in a casino. I'm not some yuppie teenager who just picked Colorado because it's out of the way, it's my home and I have been doing my research as to the best places for someone late teens- to early-twenties to live. Up here in Washington you have to be 21 to work at any place that serves alcohol or wine, I had been out of state when I got my license/permit, so that crosses out anything up here. I'm not moving back immediately, it'll be within the next couple years, so I was just trying to ask advice on decent small towns to live. Thanks anyways.

jazzlover - I'm a girl, and part Ute; I've been to Tawaoc several times and have no interest in working in a casino.
