My husband and I recently got married at The Briarhurst Manor and all I can say is WOW!!! We are speechless. We found this venue over the internet. The reviews were pretty good and so much was included so we booked it without seeing it. We live in Florida so when we had a chance we came out to do cake tasting and so on and omg this place is beautiful. The food is to die for. We eneded up having our rehearsal dinner here also in the Palmer Room!!! The price is so reasonable... Not even fair actually compaired to the service and food. There were even deer hanging around during the wedding. Our planner Allison.... Im really not sure there are words to describe how amazing she was. I still tear up thinking about her and everytime i turned around, she was always there to make sure my family and our guests were happy. We were so nervous and Allison just made it happen. Our wedding was so intimate, and beautiful. We truly couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding. Allison felt like part of the family. She def. Outdid herself. I would reccommend Allison and the Briarhurst Manor ten times over. The staff was also so attentive and amazing, even patient when dealing with drunkin guests. We cant thank you enough. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you. We cant wait to come back for our anniversary every year. This is the nost beautiful venue with amazing people👍😊
It's too bad this placed closed. It was like Extreme Bargains (also closed). The only discount grocery store in Springs is Cheapies on Fillmore. It's a nice upgrade. They have produce, bulk bins and a lot of private label foods. It's become our families weekly stop before going to the regular grocery store.
Extreme Bargains is closed. Cheapies is the new discount store in Colorado Springs and it's much better.
A fantastic place, always welcoming, inviting, and non-judgemental. Check out their website, they are exactly who they claim to be - an alternative lifestyle community center.
I love this place, Carne Asada is great! I drink the beer. lol
Awesome product and prices! Great employees and member deals!
Benny's is my favorite bar in Colorado Springs. Also, in my opinion, Ashley is the best bartender in Colorado.
My observations are based on daytime visits since I do not go to bars at night (I am 71).
Dana the owner has an exceptional operation...
I am a vendor at ACM with three locations throughout the store. ("Mom & Me, Vintage Linens, Lace and Antiques") ACM gives me the best opportunity to Grow my business because they help. They are interested in our success and we are more than just a number here. Are we filthy rich? No, but we sure do have a lot of fun making a decent profit, doing what we love.
Kim Holdren Kowalski lists her self as currently employed by this business on her LinkedIn page, claims she's been their webmaster since 2011, yet in her glowing review, she does not disclose this.
At best it's highly questionable.
A must try!
A little over a month ago, one of the bartenders named Chris Anerdon assaulted me and attempted to kill me.
He fled the scene of the crime before the police arrived.
I have filed charges with the city, and am in the process of getting a restraining order against him, and several other employees of Bennys who participated in the assault.
Please, especially women, do not go to Bennys. More than one female friend has been Assaulted in the parking lot and the owner Dana, and the incompetent bouncer named Mike have turned a blind eye to drug dealing, violent assaults, sexual crimes, and homelessness on the property.
I have also attempted to reasonably make contact with the owner to discuss the fact that he is essentially endorsing his employees attempted murder of me(worth no provocation).
I am also in the process of going over the incompetent police office Adam Loughtons head and getting a supervisor to expand the list of charges that are to eventually be served to Chris Anderson and several other employees at this criminal blight on our community.
I was driving all day yesterday and didn't have time to prepare food so I was going to settle for a veggie sub at Subway. When I pulled in to the parking lot, I noticed Arabian Nights Cafe in front of me. I went on my phone and looked at the reviews and decided I just had to try the falafel over going to Subway. WOW! So glad I chose to try it. It was the best falafel I have ever eaten! Very friendly service and I was given a cup of tea while I waited for my falafel. The tea was amazing too! Absolute perfection!!! I will be coming back until I have experienced everything this place has to offer. AMAZING!
Great beer served by Hans and his extraordinary staff makes it taste so much better. Combine it with the local food truck serving it's great food makes this place the best place to be in town.
Great beer combined with amazing food from the local food truck here makes it the best hang out spot in town.
Can I please please please get the recipe for the amazing shrimp tacos as I don't live in the area!! They were amazing!
Have shopped there over 10 years and always liked finding unique things. My GO TO place!
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.
Best Shop and Artists
Reminds me of deep-in-the-city eateries I frequented on the east and west coasts - but the food is a lot better. I never saw disorganization, just crowded. One mistake, and they fixed it. Go there. Huevos Rancheros. Go there.
No better breakfast, anywhere.
