Nestled deep in the mountains is a little mining town where the folks drink as hard as they work and the lost souls of ill repute haunt empty mines. There’s nothing like going down to your local watering hole and watching the drama play out in real time. From cheating spouses to drunken arm wrestling, everything is possible!
Brian wrote ‘In My Little Town’ while hanging with his buddies at Bux’s Place. Based on real people, the song pokes fun at some of the goofy things folks do when they’re having a little too much fun.
Bux’s Place was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. From the bullet holes in the bartop to the Deer mounts ranging back to the early 1900s, Bux’s is full of Old West nostalgia. Once a Hotel and Mercantile, Bux’s is the only remaining two-story commercial log building featuring a back bar from the late 1800s. The world-famous neon sign reading “Bux’s Place” dates from the 1930s and has been featured in numerous movies, documentaries, and TV series.
