Re: “40 Thieves Hookah Lounge

40 Thieves is a solid, spacious, and comfortable hookah lounge. Out of all the hookah joints that I've visited here in Colorado Springs, this one is by far well lit while keeping the smoking ambiance. They card here too, so that is definitely respectable. The prices aren't too bad and neither is the service. In an area where there isn't much to do in the evenings, I'd definitely come back to 40 thieves to kick it with my buddies.

Re: “The Blue Star

How rare...I have been eating at the Blue Star since it opened and have always had a first rate experience on every level.

The Blue Star and Marigold's are the two best places to eat in the City...just considerably better than any similarly priced places.

Importantly, the volume is high enough that the foot is always fresh...I am actually pretty stunned by the bad review. Maybe the hubby is allergic to sea bass.

Re: “The Blue Star

My husband and I had been to blue star a handful of times since moving to the springs about a year ago. Friends of ours had talked it up and we really had seen nothing like it in Colorado Springs.
We were excited to bring my inlaws there when they came to visit for the first time. Everything seemed as usual when we first arrived, we had a table in the lounge area.
Things started going down hill when we got the appetizers. The cheese and meat plate only had one triangle of cheese and was nothing like I remember it being the last time we had ordered it. When one of our several waitresses (sounds nice until they repeat themselves and it becomes unorganized) came to clear our appetizer plates she rubbed the edge of a messy plate against my brother in laws sleeve leaving a sticky mess. We brushed that off pretty quickly though, especially after putting club soda on the spot...
Next thing I know my mother in law is sitting with her main course (salmon) in front of her and she's not touching it, I look at it and there are hairs under the salmon on her plate. When she told the waitress, the waitress offered to get her a new dinner and she comped the meal, but it just wasn't right that after the second mishap from the staff we didn't get a visit from the manager or any kind of sincere apology.
Worst part is next.... My husband woke up with TERRIBLE food poisoning the next day. He had the sea bass and no one else tried his dish. It was a violent case making for a not so great trip for his family. My husband was cooped up in our hotel in Denver all day Saturday and missed an excellent dinner in Boulder.
We are very disappointed in what a scam we fell for, this restaurant poses to be fine dining when really they are unorganized, unsanitary and unprofessional. We will not to recommending this restaurant to anyone in the future and will stay far away from it ourselves!

Re: “Red Rock Lounge

We stopped in here New Years Eve to have a couple beers. The regulars are not at all friendly and are in fact quite hostile to outsiders. We played a game of darts and a loudmouthed regular wanted to fight us over it. When we didn't fall for his threats, he harassed us non stop as we played. Go there only if you want to get into a fight with a regular. There are bars in town with much cooler clientele.

Re: “15C

Well here it is the last day of 2012 and they STILL haven't reopened. Let me say I loved 15c and I would honestly drive from Denver to drink there if they did reopen.

Re: “Yarn Outlet

The Yarn Outlet has graduated from being a discount yarn store to being a top destination for every yarn from I'm-just-learning-acrylics to designer cashmere, silk, alpaca and organic hand-painted special fibers. Their needle and accessory selection is great and it is now even less likely that you can leave without buying something. The owner is helpful and friendly and so are the knitters, of whom I am happy to be a regular one.

Re: “KOAA-TV NBC 5

Channel five and Lisa are so awful, we stopped watching them over a decade ago. Hyped weather and the morning Gazette's news poorly delivered not at all understood is a waste of time to watch.

Re: “Kasey's Bar & Grill

Just a bar at night, but during the day this is BBQ HEAVEN! I have lived all over (Thanks to the military... and I am from Texas where BBQ is a serious matter and not to be taken lightly so trust me when I rave.)

I have been to Kasey's DOZENS of times and every time I drag another geeky coworker with me in there they are forever thankful and in BBQ HEAVEN!

The 3-meat sampler is the best deal... just get that and plan on taking leftovers home. Oh! I saw an e-mail come out today at work saying that we are going to be having Kasey's come in to our office building so people can go and order a plate to take back to their offices.... WOOHOO! Hopefully this is a regular thing for us... AND I hope he has LOTS of food because we have 300 people between our two buildings of DoD contractors:) I love good food and don't care if the place is nothing fancy.

By the way, I have tried alllll the sides and never been disappointed in anything... EVER!

Re: “KRDO NewsRadio

More of a talk station than a news station, but they do have the best radio newscasts in the area. KRDO and ABC News go a lot better together than KVOR and ABC.

Re: “KOAA-TV NBC 5

This is the absolute worst station in the Pikes Peak area. Horrific affiliation with the worst broadcast news organization (NBC)- check. Ignoring the wildfire that threatened a good part of the Springs last summer while showing their Pueblo bias- check. Paying off the Gazette and various community events in order to claim Springs local status- check. Hopefully Springs viewers will wake up and realize that 11, 13, and even 21 are better than this waste of television space.

Re: “KVOR 740

Good conservative lineup, but below average local news coverage (compared to KRCC and KRDO). And does the Springs really need 2 ABC News radio stations?

Would you believe that this station has fans (and strategically placed bumper stickers) in the Soho section of New York City?

Re: “KKTV Channel 11

The best of the Colorado Springs stations as far as news. They blew away the competition on covering last summer's inferno. And their newscasts can be viewed on the internet from anywhere- a big plus when you're on vacation and want to catch up on the news from home.

Re: “KKMG-FM Magic 98.9

Typical top 40 station- but with a fresher playlist than usual for a smaller market like Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

Posted by netscaper113 on 12/10/2012 at 3:46 PM

Re: “96.1 FM The Beat

Best of the local stations as far as contemporary music goes- but a bit too Clear Channel packaged. And for some reason, their signal is weak in the northern sections of the Springs.

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: “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...
