Re: “Hondo's Sports Bar & Grill

Hondo's is the best bar in town, bar none. Great atmosphere, great bartenders, the specials are unbeatable, and Arch Hooks always has an awesome set list.

Re: “Hotel Eleganté Conference and Event Center

Excellent choice! I have attended several conferences at the Crowne Plaza this past year. I have been impressed with the ambience, service, detailed attention of staff. Location is good. Better choice than the Doubletree.

Re: “Agia Sophia Coffee Shop & Bookstore

This place is great at making coffee, food, and a place to contemplate, study, read, etc... Coming from the NW, a place know for many coffee shops, it makes me happy.

Re: “R&R Coffee Café

If you like gourmet food and excellent service, then don't pass up this little gem. They roast their own coffee and sell several fine blends by the pound.
Food is prepared by a chef/baker with a 5star resume. They serve breakfast and lunch Monday-Saturday, and unbelievable dinners on Friday evenings.

Re: “American Classics Marketplace

American Classics Marketplace is part flea market and part museum. A fun place to browse and be reminded of the way things used to be, it also has plenty of opportunities for picking up a bargain-priced item to complete your home's decor. Turnover is quick though, so you'll need to make up your mind on most things right away.

My only complaint? It's a very large and maze-like facility - thus you'll never remember where you saw something unless you take notes.

Re: “The Buzz

The Buzz is better than previous incarnations. The live music has been good plus the staff have been friendly to me, introducing themselves and smiling as well- something most places need to learn to do. Too many places seem like they are too busy too deal with customers! Stay open til 2 okay?. Why places close at 11 or 12 just because business is slow is beyond me, when doors are locked there will be no business at all!
I would give 5 stars but any red decor has to go! Restaurants that have red walls, carpet and such do so because it has been shown diners will eat and then leave. A bar should not want customers to have a beer and go! Hope to see a patio maybe...? Thanks!

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

I haven't been there since last summer, since I've cut back on my shopping while getting rid of my excess inventory, but it's been one of my favorites stores to find unique and different things, so I hate to see bad comments about it. They sell everything from Antiques to handmade to garage sale stuff, which is why it's so fun, you never know what you'll find. The prices also range from overpriced, to great deals. I don't go downtown very often, but make a special trip now and then just for the Treasure Shoppe, and have been going off and on for years, so can't believe they've gone so far downhill in a year. If you just want antiques, stick to the actual antique stores, since just because they sell some antiques, doesn't make them an "antique" store. A lot of places are combining antiques with other things these days, which is great for people like me, and like they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure. I've always found great things there, at decent prices, since I look for items to resell myself. It's in the top of my top 10 stores to shop, so I really don't know what people are complaining about, they're obviously shopping for something specific and are looking in the wrong store. No matter, the Treasure Shoppe definitely gets a thumbs up from me.

Re: “Royal Castle Lounge & Grill

Great show at the Royal Castle Lounge last night. The headliner, Captain Wails and the Harpoons, put on a good show. Also caught the warm up band, The Youthful Nothings. This is a really good up and coming Punk/Grunge band. Royal Castle Lounge is a nice venue! Highly recommend you stop by and listen to some good music!

I've just started going there and I didn't have that experience at all.

Re: “Cafe 225 Coffee Shop and Venue

new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.

Re: “Christal's - Austin Bluffs

I had an awesome experience here!!! If it weren't for the owner I never would have survived my first day stripping. She not only set me up with some great stuff but also gave me inc-readable advice that saved my life that day. TOTAL LIFE SAVER. I would recommend to every one. (Oh and she even let me use the bathroom!!!!) Maybe you were just rude? Eh its standard procedure to see anybody's ID when entering an adult store. (duh)

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Front Range is sadly underrated for their wonderful marriage of very very good food and quality music. No words can describe their delectable meals. And whoever books their bands really know what they're doing because we've seen some great acts come through here, most of them traveling from afar. Not sure why they advertise it as "southern rock" because musicians have come from Philly, Boston, etc., and have a wise variety of soulful sounds. If you want excellent food from a restaurant that has great taste in music, this is the place to be.

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

Lots of improvements both inside and out. The owners and staff work very hard to keep everyone coming back again and again. If you are looking for a place that has something for everyone's taste, you need to check them out!

Re: “Mill Outlet Fabric Shop

I would give 5 stars except for the service is not as reliable or respectful as it could be throughout the staff. Staff is older and assumes you know what you want and where to find it. They don't take kindly to having to walk around the store themselves. I hope I'm not being fair and this was just one person among them who displayed this lackadaisical attitude to a first time customer who plans to be a repeat one if it hounds you to death. lol STILL this is a phenomenal store as far as its content. Unique and well stocked.

Re: “Piramide Boutique

Love the hemp clothing, designed with comfort in mind, and perfect wear for the artist in you. Sometimes it's a bit more hectic than I like, maybe because it is tourist season then, but there is another store in Old Colorado City! That is an alternative to seasonal crowds. They have everything you could want at Pyramide! Hats, jewelry, bags, and scarves included.

Re: “Trinity Brewing

I have not been there in some time but when I was I really appreciated all the Belgian ales on tap. That is very hard to find. If you appreciate Belgian ales you can do worse.

Tejon- I usually like your reviews but it seems like it's personal with you. You have too many entries on here and it's watering down your comments. Just my thoughts.

Jason is kind of a hippy dude, I met him when he was the brewmaster at Bristol's. He certainly has talent.
