No Aliens, but We Be Rockin'

... place. TravelAdvisor said best place is bakery only open for breakfast and lunch. Ate at Cattle Barons. Did I mention you can't find a cocktail anywhere in this State? Food was marginal, but since no booze, tab was cheap, even with a couple of glasses of wine. Decided on advice of friends that we should go to Inn of the Mountain Gods casino.
