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.
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.
I've seen this variety of work and I highly recommend spending some time with each piece.
Great coffee, and Great art.... A winning combonation made even better by sweet people behind the counter!!!
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.
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.
The Warehouse Restaurant
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.
Lovley wine list, excellent service, devine food in a unique atmosphere.
The best little gallery in the Springs
Thank goodness for Modbo and Rubbish in Colorado Springs. There are only so many vapid landscapes one can take at the Cottonwood and BOAC. While content is still a little thin in the emerging artist scene in Colorado Springs, there is a definite spark igniting especially at the Modbo and Rubbish Galleries.
Nice wall space, easily accessible to the arts district and the public. Smaller sized shows, but usually innovative content. Worth a look !
I think this is the best frame shop in Colorado Springs. They actively support the local art community, including schools and their students. They have artwork from about 25 local artists on display. They offer a superbly large set of frame choices, easily the largest set of choices in Southern Colorado. They are both professional and small town friendly at the same time. Well worth visiting.
This is definitely worth checking out when you are interested in an upscale dining experience. Interesting menu, very nicely done. The gallery is also available for rent as a party/event room and makes for a great party.
The exhibit looks remarkable. Such a wide array of visual arts, it's incredible and well worth seeing!
