Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat StuffBook - 2006
Let popular travel writer Pam Grout introduce you to Colorado's weirdest, wackiest, and most outrageous people, places, and things. Read about Telluride's New Sheridan Hotel, which promises to pay for a guest's funeral if they die while staying there; the Nothing Festival, where T-shirts are $15 for those who have a sense of humor, $20 if they don't; and the Golden Door doggie spa (packages include guided play time, bathing, haircut and blow dry, "paw-dicure," gourmet lunch, and twenty-minute massage). The author's witty narrative not only entertains but also provides choice material to repeat at cocktail parties before, during, and after exploring the Centennial State. This definitive collection is a great read for Colorado residents and anyone else who enjoys local humor and trivia with a twist.
