Lauren Ripko, the event director of Taste of OCC, says "Old colorado city is kind of a hidden gem in Colorado Springs. We pull a lot of tourists in, but a lot of locals don't realize it's here. It's the first territorial capital in Colorado, so there is a lot of history here. The wild west used to run these streets. Thunder and Buttons is one of the original bars/brothels; they will be [at Taste of OCC].
