Re: “Piramide Boutique

Love the hemp clothing, designed with comfort in mind, and perfect wear for the artist in you. Sometimes it's a bit more hectic than I like, maybe because it is tourist season then, but there is another store in Old Colorado City! That is an alternative to seasonal crowds. They have everything you could want at Pyramide! Hats, jewelry, bags, and scarves included.

Re: “Marika's Coffeehouse

Marika's coffee shop is truly the one place you must stop for coffee and a choice of many rich delectable goodies while you watch the people go by. If you aren't into the folks, you can spend a couple of hours just looking at all the art on display! It is fascinating. A great local hangout, you'll meet artists, writers, belly-dancers, no telling, but it is a fun and colorful place to hang.

Re: “5th and Main Espresso Bar

Fast FUD! Cheap Coffee (Organo Gold). No Dessert! Focaccia on pannini tasted like cardboard. You do get a bag of chips and a pickle probably from Sam's Club or Cosco. Make sure you stop in the restroom first for paper towels...napkins are like tissue paper. Overpriced! Never Again!

Re: “The Healing Canna

This place truly is the premier mmc In Colorado springs. I have been to many others but this place has it all...super friendly helpful staff and incredible meds. No other center I have been to can touch this place in quality or professionalism. I will be going back for more:)

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Good place with usually good music. Open mic Thursdays pretty much sucks. Bartenders are friendly (Hi Jamie Hi Ashley) until 2 AM then you better go! Hey they wanna go home! The smoking area is freezing in the winter. Men's room is small and smells. Deck out back is okay. A better sound system would be nice.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Gringo...I guess it is personal...I am a better beer drinker than anything else I do...but I always feel dissed and abused and robbed at Trinity. Never felt so taken at any place i have bought a beer in Colorado Springs...so I do take it all as you perceive.

Also...every single brew pub in the Springs makes generally better beer...so why be abused and have your evening spoiled when you can drink better beer and your patronage be appreciated somewhere else.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

I have not been there in some time but when I was I really appreciated all the Belgian ales on tap. That is very hard to find. If you appreciate Belgian ales you can do worse.

Tejon- I usually like your reviews but it seems like it's personal with you. You have too many entries on here and it's watering down your comments. Just my thoughts.

Jason is kind of a hippy dude, I met him when he was the brewmaster at Bristol's. He certainly has talent.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Just mentioned this to a friend who immediately regaled me with tales of rude treatment and whacko bad beer...the verdict is in.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Just to make sure my review above registers...I am posting again.

Lots of people who were excited about this place when it opened no longer even consider going...I never hear someone say, Hey I was at Trinity last night. It is an closed crowd of which, unless you are a head case, you would problem not want o be a part.

Re: “A Cut Above - Fillmore

So what am I missing here? When I click on the link for your menu I get a list of hair cut prices.! So where can the MMJ menu be opened?

Re: “Bricks Sports Bar & Grill

Bricks Sports Bar & Grill is a in the old location for Studebakers. If your looking for a place to enjoy a neighborhood feel in central Colorado Springs then this is a great place to do it. They have been doing many improvements and the food is fantastic. Live music is starting every Friday on May 12th. Plenty of free parking. Pool, darts, fooseball and lots of TV's.

Re: “Original Cannabis Growers

I'm researching getting my first MMJ card and various dispensaries in the Springs and I have to say Alan420 that if you wish to come across as knowledgeable, you need to speak English and get away from the "thug" speak. Use punctuation and words not long strings of nonsense to trash someone's opinion. Your post was no help to me at all and sorry to say, you came across as wasted or illiterate and this does not help me want to trust your opinions. I'll stop my rant everyone and continue my search. Keep it real and honest all. Have a great day.

Re: “Maggie's Farm - S. Nevada

They could take better care of their members, but other than that, THIS PLACE IS GREAT. Their meds are super dense and great quality. They have numerous strains to choose from and consistently have inventory. Maggie's business hours are easy to work with and regular. I can't wait to check out the NEW Maggie's location on Fillmore. But the best thing about this place is the patient and friendly staff at the S. Nevada location. Just ask for what Jesse recommends and you can't go wrong! Best meds under the sun baby.

Re: “Ritz Grill

Went for lunch today to try the new menu. It had a lot of interesting food that all sounded sooo good. I had The Bomb sandwich. That is a perfect name it was truly the bomb, it had egg salad and pastrami. My husband had the Peking chicken and asparagus fries which were amazing. My son had fish and chips and he liked those. OH yeah started with the Man Candy, you can't go wrong with spicy/sweet bacon.

Re: “Thunder & Buttons II

"nightowl" is obviously pitching a band which is probably friends with "nightowl" and using this review forum to get them on MTV?! Nah! Nobody could be that lame.

Re: “Rawkus

Very unprofessional staff. No respect for local acts, even though they "want to build the local scene." I've never actually been screamed at by a representative of a venue, and I've played about 90% of the venues in the Springs. I warn any act going in there to expect to be treated poorly, but I hope you have a better experience when/if you play. Timbo, the main sound guy is a pure gentleman, but the rest of the crew is pretty negative.

Sound isn't terrible, but the tin roof and concrete floors really color it. Lights aren't terrible either, they have moving heads, but they project a screen saver on the back of the stage that seems pretty corny. I'm sure you can request that off though. Stage is white, not a fan of that.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend anyone to play a show here. In fact, I would say try to get the show moved to the Black Sheep or Loft or somewhere else.
