Re: “Cafe 225 Coffee Shop and Venue

new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.

Re: “1st & 10 Sports Bar & Grill

Cheap booze, nice staff. Usually close to empty though. This is great for a friendly social time but not a good place to looking for a new spouse.

Re: “Christal's - Austin Bluffs

I had an awesome experience here!!! If it weren't for the owner I never would have survived my first day stripping. She not only set me up with some great stuff but also gave me inc-readable advice that saved my life that day. TOTAL LIFE SAVER. I would recommend to every one. (Oh and she even let me use the bathroom!!!!) Maybe you were just rude? Eh its standard procedure to see anybody's ID when entering an adult store. (duh)

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Front Range is sadly underrated for their wonderful marriage of very very good food and quality music. No words can describe their delectable meals. And whoever books their bands really know what they're doing because we've seen some great acts come through here, most of them traveling from afar. Not sure why they advertise it as "southern rock" because musicians have come from Philly, Boston, etc., and have a wise variety of soulful sounds. If you want excellent food from a restaurant that has great taste in music, this is the place to be.

Re: “Pikes Peak Alternative Health & Wellness

Pikes Peak Alt. Health and Wellness, It is what the Ideal Dispensary is. Plain and Simply the bud is Connoisseur Level! The Staff IS Polite, Friendly and Knowledgeable. They have the PASSION for QUALITY over quantity not that its lacking lol. The Focus and Attention to Detail that is Absolutely necessary to Provide the Level of Smoke that you get from "PPAHW". All of the buds I have tried sampled has something that is wonderful and tasty. P98 has beautiful deep hues of purple in its dense and heavily frosted buds. The Champanel Kush is a rarity to find it's looks are not Deceiving and the smoke is so smooth. The Alien Rock Candy has been my Favorite so far it has Everything I look for in a
'Lime Green Bud" that is also nicely frosted. The flavor it gives on intake is soothing and clean and the exhale is the same with a great lemon or lime taste but on a sweeter side. I reed about what they wrote on weed maps about the description they gave for the buds and was skeptical for sure, when I arrived and it was quiet, clean well put together. I got a few strains took them home and examined them one by one and each was flushed and cured well and showed care taken to Produce High Quality Smoke and Very Heavy Effectiveness.

The bar is under new ownership and it's about to take The Springs by Storm with live entertainment and much more.

Re: “Bricks Sports Bar & Grill

Lots of improvements both inside and out. The owners and staff work very hard to keep everyone coming back again and again. If you are looking for a place that has something for everyone's taste, you need to check them out!

Re: “Mill Outlet Fabric Shop

I would give 5 stars except for the service is not as reliable or respectful as it could be throughout the staff. Staff is older and assumes you know what you want and where to find it. They don't take kindly to having to walk around the store themselves. I hope I'm not being fair and this was just one person among them who displayed this lackadaisical attitude to a first time customer who plans to be a repeat one if it hounds you to death. lol STILL this is a phenomenal store as far as its content. Unique and well stocked.

Re: “Piramide Boutique

Love the hemp clothing, designed with comfort in mind, and perfect wear for the artist in you. Sometimes it's a bit more hectic than I like, maybe because it is tourist season then, but there is another store in Old Colorado City! That is an alternative to seasonal crowds. They have everything you could want at Pyramide! Hats, jewelry, bags, and scarves included.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

I have not been there in some time but when I was I really appreciated all the Belgian ales on tap. That is very hard to find. If you appreciate Belgian ales you can do worse.

Tejon- I usually like your reviews but it seems like it's personal with you. You have too many entries on here and it's watering down your comments. Just my thoughts.

Jason is kind of a hippy dude, I met him when he was the brewmaster at Bristol's. He certainly has talent.

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.

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: “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.
