Denver, CO – Illegal Pete’s restaurants are trying to make the road a little more enjoyable for touring bands with the launch of it’s “Starving Artists” program. The program offers free food to bands on tour in hopes that the bands tell their friend’s and fans worldwide about their experiences at Illegal Pete’s.
The restaurant, which has four locations in the Denver Metro Area and two in Boulder, launched the program as a way to get like minded people into their restaurants and create a community atmosphere for musicians and fans alike.
Spearheading the program is Virgil Dickerson, CEO of Suburban Home Records, and Andy Thomas, a local musician and music journalist.
“Both Virgil and I have toured with bands over the years and we realize how tying it can be sometimes,” Thomas said of the program. “We just want to help out those bands on tour by giving them a good meal, a place to hang out and, if they feel like it, a place to party afterwards.”
People interested in Illegel Pete’s Starving Arists Program are being urged to contact either Virgil or Andy by email at email@example.com. If you know of a band coming through Denver, make sure they get in touch.
Was just about to post this! Best idea ever. Illegal Pete’s makes my favorite burrito outside of San Diego. I always look forward to being in Denver on tour so I can make a stop there.
We’ve been to Illegal Pete’s almost EVERY SINGLE time we’ve EVER been to Denver. There’s a Swellers sticker from our FIRST TOUR EVER inside the Denver location by the silverware/sauce section.
Hands down our favorite burritos in the country AND Virgil/Andy are my buddies! All of this made me very happy. to read. Burritos and good people. Life.
ILLEGAL PETE’S!! Melt people faces and then get some free food. Life on the road.
