When I decided to start teaching workshops one of the first things I said to myself was, "I'm gonna go to some really cool places." I'm sick of workshops that are just stuck in hotels or the local park. I wanted to make my workshops epic...this is an example of some of the awesome places we go!
This image was taken during our ghost tour of the Birdcage Theater in Tombstone, Arizona. This theater has been witness to many amazing things and people, including over 120 bullet holes from fights, etc. It's also been frequented by the likes of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, and others.
Another fun fact is the poker game. The basement poker room is said to be the site of the longest-running poker game in history. Played continuously twenty-four hours a day for eight years, five months, and three days, legend has it that as much as $10,000,000 changed hands during the marathon game, with the house retaining 10 percent. Some of the participants were Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, Diamond Jim Brady, and George Hearst. When ground water began seeping into the mines in the late 1880s the town went bust, the Bird Cage Theatre along with it. The poker game ended and the building was sealed up in 1889.
Next Workshop: Las Vegas, Nevada- right after WPPI!!
