Hotel
“Monday through Saturday at 6pm in the street outside the Irma Hotel there is a free performance by Amateurs of a Gunfight. You can purchase a seat for $2 or stand and watch for free. Afterwards you can go into the main restaurant and see the very large and beautiful Cherry Wood Bar that Queen Victoria sent Buffalo Bill as a gift. They met when he took his Wild West Show to England. Buffalo Bill built this hotel in 1902 and named it after his daughter.”
