The only place that should be open... Colorado is "A CUT ABOVE" and "A CUT ABOVE" is Colorado. Just leave the diesel alone It's mine, my own, my precious! The women working here are top shelf medical marijuana experts. They have the best of the best, in fact I say this is the only spot for real medicine. Thank you Ashley it wouldn't be the same without you.
One of the better places in town. The Super Lemon Haze is real good for migraines. Prices are awesome and the girl helping me was super beautiful. I also got a free gram of kief so thank you very much!
Too bad you have to share your food with all the flies...
Very good pulled pork sandwich with Mom's Corn and Pea Salad (think 3 bean with lots of upgrades). They have a great selection of beers on tap as well bottled brewery beers. Service is always great and it's a good family atmosphere. Yup, there's lots of kids. They are people too & generally better behaved than any most impaired adults.
We saw "Swamp Cabbage perform all original music. They advertise themselves as Blues band but that was less than half of what they performed. Not the best band I have ever seen at Front Range, but decent musicians in the Southern Rock tradition. Their equipment was not sufficient to give them a full sound and it's a small area that you have to fill with sound. They were on their 10th show in 11 days and had to drive from Ogden Utah but hey...that's the job. Bring it or take a day off. They seemed to complete their sound check during the first set despite having set up an hour before they started. Unprofessional at the least.
For whatever reason, Front Range gets lots of touring bands, blue grass, folk & singer-songwriters. Many seem to play at the Telluride Blues and other festivals the week before or after. So you see acts for usually no cover that people just paid $60 to see.
Wow Was I Impressed with this place. They have great Medicine with Awesome prices. I will defiantly be back. I would recommend there Chemdawg X Alien O.G cross or the El Diablo. Jenny
A lot different from the last time I went in there. New owner's, larger dispensing area. Meds are still good. The last time I believe I picked up some Bruce Banner and a concentrate. The cute little bubbly brunette's attitude made my visit even nicer. Felicia, I think her name is ; )
Uh, not so much....
It's been awhile since I started going to Levity, and I have to say, the quality of the meds and the patient care continues to be one of the reasons I continue to visit.
Recently I've picked up some Agent Orange and Wonder Woman, two of my favorite strains, and they are as good as the first time.
Okay, "WiFi" wins some awards in the next year...Super Stellar!
Just got the harvest in and the Whitedawg on the bottom is the bomb for $175 oz. But if you are interested in the top, then search no further. Original Diesel is my favorite but the WiFi is new and I have a gram to try out. I will let you know about it. This is hands down the best medication with the most knowledgeable, beautiful bud tenders in the world. Thank you A CUT ABOVE for always being so great!
SO this place claims to be the only hookah lounge with 2 locations in the Front Range...Hmmmm Well Vibes Hookah Lounge is opening its second location too in Castle Rock, CO.
As far as freaky belly dancers WTF...and to the point of being well kept Vibes is the CLEANEST and CHILLEST Hookah Lounge around, if you have not been there I promise you it will become home to you for smoking hookah after one visit.
We are the best and all your friends are at vibes come see why...
1367 N Academy Blvd
Open 6pm to Late 7 days a week
This Y is in a nice area of town. Don't let this fool you, the place is overrun with gangster kids and skaters from the nearby skate park. I was never concerned about that until my locker was broken into, during a busy time on a Tuesday. No security, nothing done about it. Management was not surprised in the least, and stated so. I guess you are completely on your own here. If you have young children you think are being supervised, you might want to think again. This is an unsafe place pretending to be a safe place for families.
I gave Doctor's Orders a '5' because they have impressed me every time I have been in. Although I am not a member, I visit D.O. when my caregiver isn't open, for example on Sunday's.
The location is also good, and near me. It's not a big place, but it's nice inside and the atmosphere is pleasant. I am in the 'average' age range, as far as an MMJ patient goes, and I take my meds and my money very seriously. I'm also a very a picky and opinionated patient and consumer, as I should be. I decide where my money goes, and if I don't like a spot, I'll shout it out, especially if they have bad meds and even worse customer service.
I have consistently found Doctors Orders to be a very pleasant, patient focused, and affordable place to shop for my meds. Both the owner and manager are so nice. Mercede and Shannon, you make it worth it coming to shop there. Thank you so much for working with me and providing our community with what we need, good dispensary/caregivers, who do it for the patients!
If you get a chance stop by DO's- they don't have a 30 strains on the shelves, but what they do got is GOOD! And they ladies are sweet! ; )
This is the greatest place in the world for medication. Ashley is the bomb and she has the best jars around. All the girls here are killer queens... You wont know what to look at, the girls in the jars or the girls holding the jars. You can't lose here, truly the best in the springs. I love A CUT ABOVE.
Not the best by a long shot. Smelled moldy when I came in. The girls working are cool though.
When it opened, it had potential...a few tweaks here and there...but they tweaked in the wrong direction.
It is now basically a club for some fairly weird people, and if you are not a member of 'the club', you might as well find someplace else because the wait staff will ignore you, find you simply a problem for having woken up in the morning, and a bother for distracting them from the 'club members.'
The beer is interesting if you are smoking dope, but otherwise a good Dales for half the price anywhere else in town should do the trick.
This is the closest sports bar to my house; the wife and I enjoy going here for the occasional beer and lunch/dinner. The only other options around here are large chains; at least for the Cimarron Hills neighborhood. (Rock Bottom and Old Chicago come to mind.)
This is actually a cute sports bar and the food is decent. A 25oz Guinness set me back $6.99 which I felt was a tad bit pricey, but the pours were excellent and the beer fresh. The food prices were good; I had a decent-sized wrap and a cup of some very tasty chicken-tortilla soup for about $10.
So... obviously the profit margin here is made on alcohol, not food. ;) This is true for many restaurants, though.
A few stand-outs - the Buffalo-chicken wrap with fresh carrots and celery as well as the spicy burger (Dynamite burger, or something like that I believe) are very tasty.
The atmosphere is loud and kid friendly, so don't expect this to be a "quiet date night" kinda place. It's a place to bring the kids, have a beer, and watch some sports - with good food and decent if slightly expensive drinks.
Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)
For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.
The posting at the top rings true. The owner has some head issues. Nuf sed.
