Re: “The Healing Canna

This is by far the nicest , most professional center I've come across in Colorado Springs. The pricing is outstanding and the quality exceptional. Everyone working seemed generally happy to be there and very willing to help me identify the right medicine for my needs. I have found my caregiver in the Healing Canna and I won't be looking elsewhere. Highly recommended.

Re: “Best Budz

Sorry, but I wasn't impressed at all with this facility. Pricing doesn't reflect the quality and I didn't feel the people working wanted my business, or didn't care if I bought from them or not. I won't be back. Bad 1st impression, lasting impression.

Re: “Kasey's Bar & Grill

Just a bar at night, but during the day this is BBQ HEAVEN! I have lived all over (Thanks to the military... and I am from Texas where BBQ is a serious matter and not to be taken lightly so trust me when I rave.)

I have been to Kasey's DOZENS of times and every time I drag another geeky coworker with me in there they are forever thankful and in BBQ HEAVEN!

The 3-meat sampler is the best deal... just get that and plan on taking leftovers home. Oh! I saw an e-mail come out today at work saying that we are going to be having Kasey's come in to our office building so people can go and order a plate to take back to their offices.... WOOHOO! Hopefully this is a regular thing for us... AND I hope he has LOTS of food because we have 300 people between our two buildings of DoD contractors:) I love good food and don't care if the place is nothing fancy.

By the way, I have tried alllll the sides and never been disappointed in anything... EVER!

Re: “KRDO NewsRadio

More of a talk station than a news station, but they do have the best radio newscasts in the area. KRDO and ABC News go a lot better together than KVOR and ABC.

Re: “KOAA-TV NBC 5

This is the absolute worst station in the Pikes Peak area. Horrific affiliation with the worst broadcast news organization (NBC)- check. Ignoring the wildfire that threatened a good part of the Springs last summer while showing their Pueblo bias- check. Paying off the Gazette and various community events in order to claim Springs local status- check. Hopefully Springs viewers will wake up and realize that 11, 13, and even 21 are better than this waste of television space.

Re: “KVOR 740

Good conservative lineup, but below average local news coverage (compared to KRCC and KRDO). And does the Springs really need 2 ABC News radio stations?

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: “Altitude Organic Medicine

I was with AOM from the beginning of their business when they were located on Colorado Ave. We were like family, and then the owners moved to a larger, more prosperous business, and everything changed. They have secretaries and front to be high-end. I miss the guys so much but you can't do much when people decide to be more big-business than people oriented. Do not shop here folks, you are a $$ in their eyes. The owners, middle-men, secretaries, etc. DO NOT SHOP HERE.
Like I said, I miss the boys dearly, but I would hate to go to them in an emergency. I have shopped with them for three years, and they refuse to recognize my face- (it is up to them to serve to you or not). Very, very sad with this outcome, and will miss Luke, Billy and Aaron dearly. Wish the feeling was mutual, but money changes people.
I used to drop 100-130 dollars every two weeks for a few years in spite of driving 20+ miles/visit, but it certainly wasn't their problem and let me know.

Re: “The Liberal Store

I really like this story, and have followed in through several locations. They are now on North Academy north of Union Blvd ( 5744 n Academy) between a church and a liquor store. Best to shop online first, then visit the store. Otherwise there is just TOOO much to see it all..

Re: “The Hemp Center

My first trip to this dispensary SEEMED like a nice experience. My boyfriend and I are both patients and went in together. I purchased the product on sale and after I went to work my boyfriend returned to buy additional product. He was told that we received the deal that they offered to every patient (member or not) as a COUPLE and he could not be sold anything else at a sale price.
This is ILLEGAL. They will not let people in without a red card, but if you go together they only offer one deal per couple. When I went back to try to rectify the problem the "herbalist" in the front SCREAMED at me to get out after she had already checked me in. They lied and made up several excuses before they decided to sell my boyfriend the half-ounce instead of us needing to call the police for being denied treatment after already being checked into the facility and threatened. Ironically, they act like they are compassionate and sell Buddhist t-shirts, but they are truly bad people with machine-trimmed bud that is airy and stemmy. They may seem like they have decent prices but they quickly change them and will not be provided to two patients individually if they are a couple.

Re: “Café Corto Coffee Gallery

What a much needed space for our city! Great home away from home cooked food with a friendly family feel...You will leave feeling fully fed from soles to soul! Cafe Con Leche is bold and sweet, perfectly balanced extremes of flavor, and the Arepas Con Pollo is so good you could eat them for dessert cold, breakfast hot, on the go, take it home...Just take it in slow, savoring each bite and each bit of love that it is seasoned with...
