And I’m so glad that I happened to wander through Denver People’s Fair because it was overflowing with MUSIC. And to my great delight, a surprisingly good Elvis impersonator was performing “Suspicious Minds”, and he was a lot of fun to watch (short video included.)”
Los Angeles, California, USA Shelly Rivoli presents Cheap and Free Los Angeles: A stroll through the Venice canals posted at Travels with Baby Tips, saying, “When you’re finished with lines at amusement parks, and doing the drive on 5, take a time-out on the quiet corridors of this off-the-track gem in L.A.”
