Have you ever met the type of person that just gives you a ticket to a sold out show? Whether your answer is “Yes” or “No” ; it can be agreed that people like that are not only awesome they are also rare. Good news though, we know right where to find a person such as this, Jimmy’s Bodega. Our BOTW Kyle McCann happens to be one of these unicorns and it must be said “if this gentleman is the one gifting you a ticket you are in for a treat (and threat of having your face rocked off)” because the dude has some seriously good taste in music.  Kyle made his way to our little party nook of a town after years of slanging drinks in Boulder and Denver and now you can catch him most nights shaking cocktails at Bodega. Its a pretty cool coincidence that both our BOTW and the establishment he works for are bright, fresh, and inviting. So it was our pleasure to chat with Kyle and get a little hint of why he is one of the chillest hombres you can run across on a night out and about in Aspen.
