Going ‘up the hill’ doesn’t mean you’re going hiking

DENVER -- We're welcoming people who are new to Colorado with bits of local trivia.

When you hear someone say they're "going up the hill," they're not talking about hiking.

What they're probably telling you is they're going to gamble in Black Hawk or Central City.

The slots and card tables are less than an hour's drive west of Denver either on I-70 to the Central City Parkway or by going up U.S. 6 in Clear Creek Canyon from Golden.
