So much has changed...and not for the better. Just be prepared to find a lot of things very different, especially including the downtown area. Oh, and of course Aurora. It used to be a sleepy little suburb but is not that any more.

The Crusher and the Bruiser were supposed to be brothers, or cousins, I can't remember now. My dad loved All Star Wrestling and I thought it was ridiculous and fake and I always tried to make him see how stupid it was. He still watched and enjoyed it. I remember how they used to go and pick up a folding chair and toss it into the other guy's head and get lots of blood flowing. What a joke.

Here's a funny one. My youngest son is a freshman this year at the University of Denver. Early in the fall quarter he was talking to his mother and I and mentioned that from his dorm room, he can see a giant cross on the mountain west of the city. Growing up in Lakewood, I could see the Mt. Lindo cross from my bedroom window. I had to laugh, to me, it was just something that has always been there. For my son, it was entirely a new thing.

So sorry about your loss. This pandemic, and now the protests. The protests, I can definitely understand. The destruction and looting is way over the top. (Speaking of bad cops, anyone remember Buster?)

Take care and stay safe out there in the world. Great that there are more responsible people, than spoiled brats, taking advantage of this horrific situation.
Buster Snyder, who can forget?

IIRC there are some postings in this thread, or in the Denver forum, mentioning that character. Use our search tool to find them.

The Scotchman was always on the agenda during the weekends after the races were done at Englewood on Saturday nights and Lakeside on Sunday nights. Also... How many folks out there went to Malibu Grand Prix and took a few laps and played some of the video games??? I spent the better part of week nights getting my speed fix to the tune of over 6000 laps during the time the place existed. Any other race fans out there with some great memories??

Default Restaurant in the past in Denver

Anyone remember a restaurant in Denver that served a glass of tomato juice when you sat down?

I have a dim memory of that but no idea where/the name of the restaurant.

Would you be willing to share any memories of these shows? I'd be particularly interested in hearing your Led Zeppelin memories!

Barry Fey wrote a book called "Backstage Past". Definitely worth a read if you are interested in Denver's concert past.

A lot of people have forgotten that Denver, in general, and Caribou Ranch, in particular, where heavily involved in the music scene of the '70s. Nearly any pop icon of the era had recorded there at one time or another.
