Re: “Sparrow Hawk Cookware

They are the most well stocked kitchen shop in Colorado...with all those wonderful little things you never knew you needed and now can't live without.

Not to mention the owners are always there, glad to see people come in, and full of good advice cheerfully offered.

Re: “Movement Arts Community Studio

Some of the freshest air indoors! So much love and good energy under one roof that it can be felt no matter when you spend some time here. Add this space to one of your "homes away from home!"

Re: “A Cut Above - Fillmore

The only place that should be open... Colorado is "A CUT ABOVE" and "A CUT ABOVE" is Colorado. Just leave the diesel alone It's mine, my own, my precious! The women working here are top shelf medical marijuana experts. They have the best of the best, in fact I say this is the only spot for real medicine. Thank you Ashley it wouldn't be the same without you.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Very good pulled pork sandwich with Mom's Corn and Pea Salad (think 3 bean with lots of upgrades). They have a great selection of beers on tap as well bottled brewery beers. Service is always great and it's a good family atmosphere. Yup, there's lots of kids. They are people too & generally better behaved than any most impaired adults.

We saw "Swamp Cabbage perform all original music. They advertise themselves as Blues band but that was less than half of what they performed. Not the best band I have ever seen at Front Range, but decent musicians in the Southern Rock tradition. Their equipment was not sufficient to give them a full sound and it's a small area that you have to fill with sound. They were on their 10th show in 11 days and had to drive from Ogden Utah but hey...that's the job. Bring it or take a day off. They seemed to complete their sound check during the first set despite having set up an hour before they started. Unprofessional at the least.

For whatever reason, Front Range gets lots of touring bands, blue grass, folk & singer-songwriters. Many seem to play at the Telluride Blues and other festivals the week before or after. So you see acts for usually no cover that people just paid $60 to see.

Re: “LIvWell White Mountain Medicine

A lot different from the last time I went in there. New owner's, larger dispensing area. Meds are still good. The last time I believe I picked up some Bruce Banner and a concentrate. The cute little bubbly brunette's attitude made my visit even nicer. Felicia, I think her name is ; )

Re: “Levity Wellness

It's been awhile since I started going to Levity, and I have to say, the quality of the meds and the patient care continues to be one of the reasons I continue to visit.

Recently I've picked up some Agent Orange and Wonder Woman, two of my favorite strains, and they are as good as the first time.

Thanks Levity

Re: “Doctors Orders

I gave Doctor's Orders a '5' because they have impressed me every time I have been in. Although I am not a member, I visit D.O. when my caregiver isn't open, for example on Sunday's.

The location is also good, and near me. It's not a big place, but it's nice inside and the atmosphere is pleasant. I am in the 'average' age range, as far as an MMJ patient goes, and I take my meds and my money very seriously. I'm also a very a picky and opinionated patient and consumer, as I should be. I decide where my money goes, and if I don't like a spot, I'll shout it out, especially if they have bad meds and even worse customer service.

I have consistently found Doctors Orders to be a very pleasant, patient focused, and affordable place to shop for my meds. Both the owner and manager are so nice. Mercede and Shannon, you make it worth it coming to shop there. Thank you so much for working with me and providing our community with what we need, good dispensary/caregivers, who do it for the patients!

If you get a chance stop by DO's- they don't have a 30 strains on the shelves, but what they do got is GOOD! And they ladies are sweet! ; )

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)

For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Kelly O'Brian's is a staple in the community... has been as long as I've lived in CS. Great lunch specials, live music, kareoke... friendly staff. Most of all, they have been consistant for years... low turn-over so you see the same smiling faces!

Re: “Eagle's Nest Wellness Center

AMAZING PEOPLE! I agree with the previous viewers -- caring providers who do not rush, do not push anything on clients and the atmosphere is warm, even homey! Lots of choices and the staff is always concerned about our welfare. Edibles are well made, accurate in the mg. of mmj, and DELICIOUS! Must have been a very disgruntled employee!! Thank you for everything! I hope that you keep the popcorn!! lol

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

My first experience with them my breaks where squeaking on a fairly new Nissan. We took the car to the service center at my dealership; they said it would be a $450 repair. We took it to aspen and they said it was just a little dust and they cleanned them for around $30. That was a year ago and my breaks are still great. When my old Dodge broke down today I knew who to call. I'm sure they saved me thousands today. They have always been up front about what I need to do and what I "should" do and why. The technician even took me back to the shop, showed me why my car died, what needed to be done and what he was doing. Bonus I had just left the gym and stood in the sun for an hour waiting for the tow truck. I was starved and dehydrated. They have a very nice waiting room filled with free snacks and refreshments. What I was sure was gonna turn into a call to the junk yard only cost me a total of $130. Big shout out and THANK YOU to the Aspen Auto team!

Re: “Thunder & Buttons II

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Altitude Organic Medicine

I had recently read a review in the CS Indy that talked about this dispensary and how they had to move due to the new MM laws in Colorado, but other than that, I had never heard of this place .. what a bad on me !!

I happen to be downtown at Southside Johnny's, and saw the dispensary across the street and decided to check them out, being the dispensary whore that I am. It was a few minutes before closing, so I knew I had to be quick.

Everything that the budtender pulled-out was AMAZING ! It all smelled great, it all looked wonderful, and everything was cured exceptionally well. Being under the gun with time, I decided on several 1gm J's of the meds he had in the jars, which would allow me to try a multitude of their product; and I would not be disappointed !! The med. that REALLY grabbed my attention was the Bubble Gum. I only smoked 3 hits and I was stoned and stupid in a blink of an eye, and over the course of the next hour - WOW !! Over the past few days I've tried all of their meds, and can only say that every one of them have been outstanding .. honestly !!

I rarely write reviews or give dispensaries kudos, but these guys have something special going on here, and just thought everyone should know about them. Keep up the great work guys !!
