Vault Dining

This is the dining table in an old bank vault at La Cocina de Luz, where I should say I've had the best tamales ever! I'm not sure what the story is behind this particular vault. It is true that Butch Cassidy's first bank robbery was in Telluride, but I think that vault is in a different shop.

How interesting! I would want to be extra, extra positive that the door wouldn't close while dining in there. (If the door DID close, I would not leave a tip. Harumph! Oh, but would I ever leave in that case?) Thanks, Lisa, for all this "food for thought" :)

Looks like someone would be in a lot of trouble if they forgot to pay.

That makes a very attractive dining area!

Lois said...

I'd been fine eating in there as long as the door stayed open!

Ineke, here is an official definition of a tamale: A Mexican dish made of chopped meat and crushed peppers, highly seasoned, wrapped in cornhusks spread with masa, and steamed.

Very interesting and very cute. I didn't know Telluride was so notorious! Butch Cassidy?

By the by, that is one of my all-time favorite movies.

Very cool, isn't it Jacob? Sundance was with him, too. There is a road in Mt. Village named Butch Cassidy and a few things named Sundance, like one of the ski runs.

Neat! So long as the door stays open!

I think that this is not a dining spot for those with clostraphobia.
