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.
ACM is great place to shop for a variety of reasons! Not only do they have antiques they also have great gift items for birthdays and holidays! They also have a wide selection of beautiful jewelry from vintage, native American and modern. The prices are great too! Why buy a piece of new furniture when you can get solid wood piece cheaper than pressed wood and the piece will last for generations to come. Looking for a present? don't just go to the mall and pick something everybody else has? You can find something unique like tea cups, jewelry, candles, stocking stuffer items, hostess gifts and new items! Make a gift basket to fit your recipients personality! There are lots of kids items and any collectable you can imagine! So when shopping for those holiday gifts you will find the items on your shopping list all in one place! Hint: Plan an entire day you cant possibly see everything in one day!
Joey's Pizza is NY Pizza? I am from the best place in the world for Italian food period. Brooklyn New York! Nobody can beat Brooklyn Italian food. You can see me at Joey's maybe once or twice a week and I'll tell you where real Brooklyn Pizza is, but it's not in Colorado Springs, The closest thing to Brooklyn Pizza is in Pueblo Colorado, off the river walk. Now I am not going to review Joey's kitchen, the appearance, the people that work there or their ahem IQ. It's about pizza, and this is the closest I've tasted to Long Island NY Pizza. Granted, it's not Brooklyn Pizza, but it is very close to Long Island NY pizza. With all the pizza places in Colorado Springs who claim to be NY Pizza, this is the closest you will find in all of Colorado Springs. I should know, I've been looking for 2 years.
