Banjo Billy's Bus Tour

While searching online for things to do in Boulder, I came across this random, wacky possibility. It is the type of experience that probably won't happen in any other city, so I tried to talk my traveling partners to do it.

We had a tour of downtown Boulder that was pretty unique--Banjo Billy's Bus Tour.

Along the way we stopped at various houses and were given details about ghost stories, murders, suicides, madam's, wacky laws and why they came to be, etc. All the while on a converted open air school bus with a 6 pack of beer (for Russ) and white wine straight out of the bottle(for Robbye and I). It was great!

We'd almost finished our wine when the tour ended. We started talking about Austin (we were the only out of towners on the bus) and discovered that our narrator had written a comedy skit for Esther's Follies. We asked which one, not thinking we'd know it, but he said Sam I Am--one of our favorites by far. We were shocked at the coincidence of it all and he was thrilled that we knew some of his "best work!" What an event it was. We would all recommend it if you're in the area.

This is so totally the type of thing that me & B like to do. We'll be in that area over the holidays... not sure we'll have time but I will try to keep this in mind!
