Although those days are a part of history, the Gold Coin (which today also houses the Easy Street Casino) still invites patrons to throw money at the ceiling. The cash that sticks is collected once a year and donated to a local Gilpin County charity. But heres the fun part: The Easy Street Casino management matches the money donated to charity dollar for dollar and throws a free, open-bar karaoke party in honor of the local laborers of Central City and the gold miners who started the tradition. The Bringing Down the Ceiling Karaoke Party starts tonight at 8 p.m.; book a room and stick around tomorrow for the towns Lou Bunch Day. Call 303-582-5914.
