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: “KRCC 91.5

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.

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: “Bean Bandit - Circle

Excellent traditional Mexican food! Good prices and good service. I have been going here since the 80's with my family.

Re: “Mountain Shadows Restaurant

Best Breakfast Burritos anywhere. The geen chile to go is a must for those chile snacks at home or for parties! This is the place where good food and good service comes together.

Re: “Tree of Wellness

One of the better places in town. The Super Lemon Haze is real good for migraines. Prices are awesome and the girl helping me was super beautiful. I also got a free gram of kief so thank you very much!

Re: “Egg & I

For the money, probably the best sit-down breakfast place over here on the East side. Only open for breakfast and lunch, though. The Cimarron Hills neighborhood definitely doesn't have a better breakfast place in the area!

Interestingly enough, these chains seemed to exist in AZ as "The Good Egg" - the restaurants were almost identical. So, if you're ever eaten at "The Good Egg" chain, it's basically the same thing.

Expect standard breakfast food, prepared well - omelets, eggs, bacon; corned-beef hash - that type of thing. Decent (if weak) coffee. I see a wide range of people here from families with hordes of small children to seniors enjoying the chance to sip coffee and read the newspaper. The wait staff is very friendly and seem to go out of their way to accommodate everyone; going the extra mile to bring crying children crayons and coloring sheets, etc.

Nice little place!

Re: “Rock Bottom

Really, how can you say much bad about Rock Bottom? This location is a pretty decent example of the chain, with a fairly talented and creative brew master. It's your standard slightly upscale pub, with appetizers ranging from seared Ahi tuna to regular bar staples like nachos and wings.

It gets a little crazy in the bar area some nights simply because it's so darn busy and there aren't that many places to go out here on the East side... if you can get the attention of the bartenders, most of them quickly and competently can make simple drinks. If you ask for anything complex, you'll be explaining how to make it.

Beer prices are great during happy hour for the fresh, brewed-on-site beer. Food quality ranges depending on the night; I've ordered steaks here and received both excellent cuts of meat and some that I sent back after losing my appetite... and that was for their most expensive fillet which came to my table fatty and overcooked.

I'd stick with the burgers and standard bar food (pizza, nachos, etc) over anything too fancy.

Re: “Stadium Bar and Grill

This is the closest sports bar to my house; the wife and I enjoy going here for the occasional beer and lunch/dinner. The only other options around here are large chains; at least for the Cimarron Hills neighborhood. (Rock Bottom and Old Chicago come to mind.)

This is actually a cute sports bar and the food is decent. A 25oz Guinness set me back $6.99 which I felt was a tad bit pricey, but the pours were excellent and the beer fresh. The food prices were good; I had a decent-sized wrap and a cup of some very tasty chicken-tortilla soup for about $10.

So... obviously the profit margin here is made on alcohol, not food. ;) This is true for many restaurants, though.

A few stand-outs - the Buffalo-chicken wrap with fresh carrots and celery as well as the spicy burger (Dynamite burger, or something like that I believe) are very tasty.

The atmosphere is loud and kid friendly, so don't expect this to be a "quiet date night" kinda place. It's a place to bring the kids, have a beer, and watch some sports - with good food and decent if slightly expensive drinks.

Re: “Jasmine Cafe Chinese Restaurant

Very good and affordable. I've had the sweet/sour chicken, schezschuan, lemon chicken, orange chicken, all the soups, the lo mein, and most of the variety items on the menu. Never had a bad xperience. I highly recommend this place.

Re: “Pikes Peak Brewing Co.

The beers are always good, food could use some improvement.

Re: “A Cut Above - Fillmore

A Cut Above has Lovely high end quality magazine picture buds that will just make you druel at the natural smell and taste , Choices are good and nicely cured among strains ranging in the 7- 10 quality range. Price's are reflective however with only a 2 oz break on price.

Staff is friendly and professional

Their product is an enjoyable treat for me but difficult to afford on a continual basis.
worth visiting when you want to pamper yourself a little bit

Meds were okay, not the best, but the did have a great location and a very nice staff. Prices were steep which is the main reason I never returned. Sad they have to shut down though... Seemed to be one of the 'better spots' in town despite the high prices. No pun intended.

Re: “Rasta King Seafood Bar and Grill

HAVING NOT BEEN IN BEFORE WE WERE A LITTLE UNSURE GOING SOMEWHERE WE HAD NEVER BEEN. UPON ARRIVAL WE WERE WELCOMED AND THE STAFF AND CREW WERE MORE THAN ACCOMDATING. WE WENT ON TO HAVE A GREAT TIME. SUCH A FUN ATMOSPHERE. I WOULD SUGGEST ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY GO CHECK IT OUT.

Re: “CC's Glass/Lennox House

A friend of mine had her baby shower at the Lennox House. It was very quaint and private. The snacks that were provided were delicious and the owner did a great job of keeping up with the guest’s appetites. The dining area and living area were small though. I would suggest limiting your party to 10 people.
