Re: “Voodoo Leatherworks

I love this place! The staff is very friendly, the food is great and the tea is *amazing*! It's certainly a bit off the beaten path, but it's worth it. It's certainly not a conventional tea house and it's still early in it's development - having opened doors in April, but the atmosphere is cozy and relaxed. It's also great to have a new music venue in the Springs on Tuesday nights. Definitely worth checking out!

Re: “Manitou Art Center

Local artists gravitate here. There are art studios for rent, thus working artists who can be observed, or you may choose to be one of them. Community-oriented, as the name suggests, there are meetings, shows, and a bookstore "The Black Cat" making it a friendly place to be.

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: “Sangre de Cristo Arts Center

Out of the hotel control but just an FYI. Check the schedule of the performing arts complex on Santa Fe. During the summer they have outdoor concerts in their stage and you can hear EVERYTHING from the hotel. It started about 6:00 on Friday night and was supposed to end, the music did not stop until 1:00am!!! I was pissed and if it wants so late we would have been asked to be moved. I'm from Denver and if a concert is to end a specific time it ends or the police get involved! Please be considerate to those in the area who are not attending your music events and staying at the hotels, trying to get a nights sleep! My poor son woke up with bags under his eyes! I would expects more from a cultural events center!

Re: “Fare Bella Studio and Gallery

A gallery filled with the unique visions of talented local artists in a variety of media and the recommended Edge framing business; the boutique has beautiful one-of-a-kind jewely and gift items. The owner, Patrice, is a watercolor artist and instructor.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

Way overpriced, and lacks ambiance.

Re: “Paint the Town

I have become addicted! Spending evenings with Paint the Town has become my therapy to break away from the craziness and stress of the week. Open, friendly, peaceful, accepting and fun atmosphere just melts the stress away. The instructor Bev always has a warm smile, encouraging word or crazy dance. I have brought children with me all accepted and encouraged. One child is special needs and Bev was a blessing. I totally APPRECIATE that is an alcohol free zone! I WILL be back.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

Re: “Paint the Town

Our family recently joined a Paint-the-town painting party and had a blast! What a fun way to spend a cold, blustery evening with our kids. The new north-side Colorado Springs location is easy-access with plenty of free parking. The jivey music kept our creativity flowing while painters laughed with one another. Miss Bev, the owner/artist, led the class of all ages with her easy, happy style. By evenings end, we had met new friends and took home our own splashy sunflower canvases. We couldn't of had more fun as a family! And I will return soon with my office co-workers for a private team-building event to inspire some fresh ideas. Paint-the-Town is a new form of entertainment, safe for all ages, with lots of different classes, private parties and "fun"raising too! Go check it out! I bet you'll get hooked like we did and join-in more than once!

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

Thanks KCMike,
Honestly was not my intent at all to bump up my ratings, and now that this possible issue of rating push has been brought to my attention, it will not happen again; appreciate the note.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

I don't think either of Manitou Chef's comments warrant 5 stars. I agree a response was necessary for both, but why rate so highly? I guess it does bump up the overall rating of the restaurant.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

The poster of this review has absolutely no proof whatsoever that his illness is related to his dining at my restaurant. We have served dozens of the same menu items as he had over the last few days, without any other concerns or complaints from any other guests. And during his phone call to me just minutes before this posting, he was saying he was too ill to get out of bed, yet now he can pull himself together enough to quickly fire off revenge posts? He just assumes that I should write him a check without any kind of medical procedures to link his illness to dining at my establishment! I am more than happy to address his concerns if they are valid, but to claim a supposed food illness without this being proven to be a food illness, or a food illness related to my facility is ignorant, irresponsible, intentionally harmful and reckless behavior.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

Nothing against my server because she was great . But took my lady out for dinner to The Warehouse, it was our first time there. Spent over $100 .. Service is nice , food is overpriced in areas , but overall service was nice.. The following day I'm sick like all hell , couldn't eat anything except for throwing up all the food I ate there. I contact them as soon as I can in bed because I'm that sick . I speak to the manager and tell them my concern. Told him service was nice but I got sick off the food.This guy tells me i need to run test and this that and the forth to be certain I got sick from their establishment. Doesn't offer to replace dinner or anything, says I'm out if luck . Remember I just spent over $100 and nothing except and apology but a your out of luck till you have test run..WTF !!! Please advise don't show any love their way especially because their after a profit and their not looking for their customers well being.

Re: “Línea de Vida Gallery

The variety of media I saw used in the various pieces of work on display was quite diverse and interesting. The show was definitely atypical, if compared to the work usually seen in other Old Colorado City art galleries that have been around for a while. There were no works of art on dispaly at this gallery featuring the typically seen Aspen trees, pine trees, or mountain seens, which are usually aimed at tourists visiting the area who do not see these types of sceens on an everyday basis.

The show was a breath of fresh air for the Colorado Springs art enthusiast, such as myself! I saw non-representational three-dimensional sculptural forms made from metal, wood, paint, and/or fiber, hand dyed fiberart pieces, pastel drawings, charcoal drawings, charcoal combined with pastel drawings, colored pencil drawings, pen and ink drawings, paintings, pieces featuring non-traditional, recycled materials, and even a tryptych consisting of framed silk ribbon weavings. There were quite a few portraits, an interior sceen, some intriguing still lifes, and a few photographic pieces, as well.

Every art enthusiast should come see this show before it ends soon. The last show is on Friday, February 4th from 5-8. There will be a reception and the opportunity to speak with each of the 12 artists on display about their artwork, which always makes viewing art more interesting.

Re: “Línea de Vida Gallery

I've seen this variety of work and I highly recommend spending some time with each piece.

Re: “Colachi Arts

Tina, the owner of Colachi Arts, is a faithful supporter of art and artists in general; she really believes in the artists & their work she has on display. She is a very interesting person to talk with. Tina is an artist, too, and really understands the process of creativity. I guess we are all just numbers in a very busy world were it not for the peace and serenity you can derive just from taking a few moments and enjoying some artistic expressions in this wonderful gallery.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

The Warehouse owner's response to the posting by "Blumba"
An indication of the date of this event would have been most helpful, as we did have an experience with multiple vehicle break-ins, but not sure how this correlates the reported mention of my staff member’s referral to "Christmas time" and the posting date of 3-23-10. We did indeed have an evening in January when 6 vehicles, 2 of them belonging to members of my staff, were broken in to.
We always take care of clients when requests are made for assistance in contacting any needed services; police, hotels, taxis, etc., and the Gold Hill Police Station was quickly contacted by me about this matter. We also provided the affected clients with the needed contact information to reach police for patrol response or to file reports, but we can only do so much as this incident happened outside of our premise. If the reviewer is indeed referring the evening I recall, we did contact the police and they did respond, but all clients affected by these break-ins left property before law enforcement arrived.
Once the police were on premise, they let us know that vehicle break-ins had occurred this same evening in other establishments in our area; we were not alone in having this unfortunate incident happen at our place of business. Despite ongoing education and advisement from law enforcement, newspaper articles, and various broadcasts about leaving articles such as computers, cell phones, GPS devices, purses, presents, etc. in plain sight, especially during the holiday season, for some reason certain people continue to leave bait items such as these readily available to those who would steal from them. Please take some personal responsibility for these kinds of incidents!
Glad to hear the food was decent; we try very hard to be the best. As far as the mention of dessert, we serve the items that clients order for their events, and if crème puffs is requested, this is what we put out. Many other dessert options are available if requested; we are more than happy to do whatever clients ask for.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

I will never go back to The Warehouse. They put on a buffet for a work function I went to -- the food was decent, although their idea of desert for 75 people was one tray of cream puffs. However, six of us got our cars broken into while dining there, in their parking lot. When we went back in to get support from the staff in calling the police, the waitresses response was "Wow! I'm surprised that happened tonight. It usually happens around Christmas!" Anyplace that says break-ins "usually" happen at a certain time, then don't bother calling the police....makes me wonder. The best food in the world wouldn't be worth that attitude or expense.
