Re: “Speak Easy Vape Lounge

This place is the skid mark of of Springs in regards to those who partake. It is full of minors who are drinking, sales of marijuana and cocaine. Somebody lost their life recently to a shooting involving the sale of drugs. Stay away unless you are into these types of situations. There will be more crime and more victims. I would bet on it.

Re: “Southern Colorado Medical Marijuana

I love their Bubba Kush and Grape Ape. They also have decent edibles that they ship.

Re: “Ritz Grill

There's a bartender named Laken, she's pretty awesome and liberal w the drinks. But also a tease in a good way

Re: “Center for Aikido and Tang Soo Do Studies

What a crappy, power hungry school! The instructor prefers that his students bow down and worship him. No respect to the students. If you prefer visits to the E.R because the instructor doesn't understand the limitations of his students than by all means go ahead and train with them. What a joke of a school!

Re: “The Organic Seed

Excellent meds with a wide variety at an unbeatable value. If you're in Colorado Springs and fancy yourself an expert, these guys have the meds without the inflated prices.

Re: “Speak Easy Vape Lounge

This is the best place in the springs to relax and network. You never know what kinda goodies you might win, or who you might see. I have been in love with this place since my first visit.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Working class and military trash? Well that covers about everyone. That customer must be independently wealthy or unemployed. I've been a customer since 1999, and be never had any problem with the staff or customers.

Re: “Cafe 225 Coffee Shop and Venue

new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.

Re: “Bourbon Brothers Southern Kitchen

The mac n cheese that I got was absolutely amazing. Its got andouille sausage and red peppers in it and the portion size was definitely healthy. We got our food relatively fast although the place was only about 3/4 full because we were between lunch and dinner. Also the cornbread was just like momma cooked it... if my momma made cornbread that is. It was pretty good regardless.

Re: “Dogtooth Coffee Company

A really neat place, worth the visit. Plenty of free street parking. Excellent food and coffee, low key, quiet, friendly. A hidden gem in the old north end.

Re: “Rawkus

Bad acoustics, over priced drinks, ugly waitresses. Door people over charge and pocket the money and the manager acts like he doesn't know what's going on.

Re: “Maggie's Farm - E. Fillmore

My first visit to one of Maggie's location. I'm really "STOKED" that I have an avenue to leave my "feedback" about the shop, the staff, and my experience. Overall...I'm EXTREMELY impressed. I'm closing in on 60 years old, an old hippie who grew up in Hawaii. "Organic" has been my creed for as long as I can remember, and that is what drew me to Maggie's Farm. Very impressive selection....extremely friendly and knowledgable staff. Good prices to boot. Just take pleasure in knowing you are providing for your needs "organic" products. This will be my one-stop-shopping from here on out!!

Re: “Marisol Therapeutics

Tried to shop at Marisol Theraputics on Jan 1, 2014 (the BIG day) and have never encountered a worse company. Utterly incompetent and callous to their customers, both medical marijuana users and recreational users. I'm never going back. And when they go out of business it'll be a public service.

Got there at 12:50 pm on January 1, the first day retail pot was legal in Colorado. Marisol got their license to sell recreational pot well in advance so they should have been ready for the influx of customers. I got in an outdoor line I estimate to be about 120 feet long, with I'm guessing 200 people. Though I couldn't see how many people were lined up in the store. I waited over 4 miserable hours in the cold and wind in a line that barely moved, until I got close enough to the store to look in the window and see why the line barely moved.

Marisol only had one cash register active. It appeared that they only had one employee waiting on the one person at a time that could be accommodated. A second register at a separate counter went unused until the occasional medical marijuana customer came along (more on that later). There were many more Marisol employees but they were standing around looking bored and doing nothing. If they were at all concerned with the hundreds of people who had been waiting hours and hours in the cold it wasn't apparent. I could see thru the window that there were around 75 people packed into the store looking furious.

From that point I was 15 feet away from the front door. It would have taken another hour to progress to the front door, and--according to the store security guard and a man in front of me who gave up and left once he finally got into the store after 5 hours--another 2 to 3 hours until I could have bought something. Once I realized that the excessive wait was due to the store's incompetence and lack of planning I decided that I was unwilling to give this crummy company a penny of my money so I left. I was exhausted from the 4+ hour wait. Still I left not because of exhaustion or the additional wait, but because I decided to boycott Marisol.

But wait there's more. I just wanted to buy recreational pot. Marisol made their customers for medical marijuana wait outdoors in the same freezing eternal line. I was standing beside a cancer sufferer who had to keep getting out of line to puke. And after 4 hours a man about 15 feet in front of me, almost to the front door, complained to an employee and at that point was finally allowed to get out of line and go to the medical counter to get what he needed. He was clearly pissed, and for good reason.

Marisol's callousness was just appalling. They could have had signs up directing medical patients to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have had employees come outside to announce that medical customers could go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers telling medical customers to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers with their product selection so people could make their choices in line and decide what else to get if the store ran out of some products. They could have done countless things to be more efficient and less callous, but they didn't bother. Hell, some shops even had propane heaters so the people outdoors in line could be less miserable. Not Marisol. Nope. Screw the customers.

A lot of people around me left in disgust without ever getting to buy anything after we got a look into the store and realized that there was only one employee running one cash register. A lot more people vowed never to patronize Marisol again. I'm one of those people.

Re: “The Canna Center

I've been a member here for 2 or 3 months now, and I have been a card holder since Feb '13, so I've been to several dozen dispensaries. Saskia, Mindy and the other staff are so pleasant and attentive, they make it a pleasure to go to the store. I have only shopped at the Powers location since it's only 2 miles from the house. I specifically logged on today to mention three things: Killshot, in-house-edibles, and their concentrates. I didn't realize it until I went back to the store to comment on how kick-ass the Killshot I got was, that it had recently won The Hemp Connosseur Magazine's "Connosseur's Choice" award November '13! I knew it was good, but not that good! My tolerance has been crazy high thanks to the potency of The Canna Center's meds, but this killshot bud felt like I smoked a fatass bowl of bubble hash. They just started making these little peanutbutter/choc balls, they say they are like 88 active mg's, but they felt more like the 200mg Budha bars I've been eating. I had one early morning around 7, then ate the second one around noon, and was giggly and euphoric ALL DAY. Lastly, their Super Lemon Haze (which I also found out won an award at that same event "Patient's Choice") is uber-potent. I use it in my "Higher Altitude" e-pen (I don't think they sell them there, but they probably should look into it) and it works like a champ for ultimate discreetness around my teens, or when it's too cold/windy to smoke outside in this Colorado weather. I love this place! I've watched their glass, t-shirt and other inventory double or triple over the past few months. If you haven't been in a while, you should def. go back.
