Re: “The Liberal Store

I really like this story, and have followed in through several locations. They are now on North Academy north of Union Blvd ( 5744 n Academy) between a church and a liquor store. Best to shop online first, then visit the store. Otherwise there is just TOOO much to see it all..

Re: “The Hemp Center

My first trip to this dispensary SEEMED like a nice experience. My boyfriend and I are both patients and went in together. I purchased the product on sale and after I went to work my boyfriend returned to buy additional product. He was told that we received the deal that they offered to every patient (member or not) as a COUPLE and he could not be sold anything else at a sale price.
This is ILLEGAL. They will not let people in without a red card, but if you go together they only offer one deal per couple. When I went back to try to rectify the problem the "herbalist" in the front SCREAMED at me to get out after she had already checked me in. They lied and made up several excuses before they decided to sell my boyfriend the half-ounce instead of us needing to call the police for being denied treatment after already being checked into the facility and threatened. Ironically, they act like they are compassionate and sell Buddhist t-shirts, but they are truly bad people with machine-trimmed bud that is airy and stemmy. They may seem like they have decent prices but they quickly change them and will not be provided to two patients individually if they are a couple.

Re: “Café Corto Coffee Gallery

What a much needed space for our city! Great home away from home cooked food with a friendly family feel...You will leave feeling fully fed from soles to soul! Cafe Con Leche is bold and sweet, perfectly balanced extremes of flavor, and the Arepas Con Pollo is so good you could eat them for dessert cold, breakfast hot, on the go, take it home...Just take it in slow, savoring each bite and each bit of love that it is seasoned with...

Re: “Tam O'Shanter Pub

This bar has been around for longer than most have even lived here... Although it has had it's "hay day" many years ago... it really is still a fun little place. It is a small and cozy. The CO Natives come and go (not on a regular basis but on and off... to sort of just "check in") old clientele will confess they take for granted it will just always be around... The food is fine... It is by no means fine dining but good grub... it is pub food for goodness sake. The new owner is actually really nice... Students from Colorado Tech University and the Tech corridor used to pack the place but with the quieting down of the Tech Corridor (G o G) things are quieter... Used to get some semi-pro baseball teams who didn't want to stay near Sky Sox... they were loyal to the place actually. If you haven't been in here... you really should try it... It is one of the many lovely old bars in town... kind of like Benny's, The Dublin House, The Old Dutch Mill, Navajo Hogans, and of course The Hill Top Lounge. Each which were once upon a time "THE PLACE TO BE" and folks drove from all around town to squeeze in to these places... The old timers still pop in... curious newbies pop in and of course there are the colorful customers who give you something to look at and laugh at. Go in and say hello.... these old drinking establishments are worth visiting to ensure they don't disappear. If you don't like "old hole in the wall bars"... maybe you should stick to the national chain establishments.... Support your local small businesses and keep an open mind... they aren't FANCY in any way....

Re: “Tam O'Shanter Pub

Greatest bar/ Pub In Colorado springs! I don't know why this guy is giving such bad review for? Maybe he was to drunk to remember what happened. When I was there with some friends we were treated great and served with the best service by the owner lady Denise. I will be going back there again real soon!

Re: “Acme Smoke

Wow. Big buds and the best clones in town. I love this place, the girls are nice and very knowledgeable. They care and it shows in their product.

Re: “JP Wellness - S. Academy

Went there and the cozy feeling set in right away. Todd was very friendly, patient. He explained everything in the shop and he took the time to ask what did I like and why, then made recommendations. Like the first time discount thing and then the raffle is a good idea. I really got hooked up that day and made my home store J P Wellness.

Re: “The Healing Canna

Not only do these guys have some of the nicest product I've ever seen, they have bent over backwards to accommodate my disability. Give them a try.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Trinity is a great place. They have high quality food and the cooks do it right. My favorite is the Griz! and if they've added the Buffalo Mac to the menu then you got to try it. The owner, whose root is in brewing, knows his craft and they make many great beers but he knows other guys brew great beer too. So he also offers the best beers from around the world for his customers to enjoy. I'm living in Germany for the next few years but look forward to returning home and sitting again at that funky counter.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

The beer is warm and too cute for serious beer people...veggi heads with dreadlocks would love this place, but how many of those are in Colorado Springs...most unwelcoming.

Go to Dickie's two doors down, have a good BBQ and a Shinerbock is my recommendation.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Horrible service. Been here twice, and both times I was ignored by the waitstaff for over 15 minutes. Would have left but was meeting people there. Took forever to get food out. The food is good- if you're into local, organic, vegetarian stuff, but the prices are a bit steep and the portions are very small. Was shocked by seitan gyro did not come with fries for the price.

Re: “The Canna Center

Love this center! The staff is super helpful and always so cheerful! I wont shop anywhere else. Blue cheese, headband, and super lemon haze are some of my favorites! The growers of this center are masters of their trade and the manager here is such a sweet girl, a great conversationalist who is always happy to help explain legalities and paperwork. Also TJ and Smiley are awesome! Smiley always knows the est way to discribe the effect of each strain and TJ can tell you about all the edibles in detail.
