Country superstar Toby Keith says he used to play in Colorado quite a bit, including five-night stints at the Grizzly Rose, and so it made sense to open his ninth and largest Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill in Denver. Keith stopped by his 22,000 square-foot Northfield Stapleton spot on the way to Canada as part of its official grand opening.
He spoke for a few minutes about performing in Colorado and about the fried baloney sandwich, his favorite item on the menu. He also says he'll drop by the spot whenever he's in town. Also check out our I Love This Bar Bingo.
