Re: “Sarges' Grill offers common ground to eat on

Shawn, as much as you wish I acted like an advertising agency, here's the actual deal: The point of my reviews is to help readers find new places, and also to comment on the value of the food I sampled, for those interested in my opinion.

It's fine that you want to spray cash at anybody with a Pikes Peak zip code, but there's a percentage of the populace that wants to know if their money will be wasted or not, and operate on guiding principles that involve more than just the address. Guess which one I'm writing for ...

No business deserves support simply for existing.

Re: “Sarges' Grill offers common ground to eat on

So I've not had the opportunity to eat at sarges grill as of yet but Bryce Crawford always rips places apart especially local establishments now I'm even more inclined to try them because they need to be supported. This type of review is bad for a small business owner. It would be a better idea to let them know the issues and go back after they have corrected them and then review them and report your experience. The Independent is all about independent businesses but I don't think that Bryce Crawford gets that. I would like to see the independent find a writer that cares about this city and it's local establishments as Matthew Schniper does.

Re: “BooDad's becomes better, bolder on its march Westward

My wife and I ate there last week and it was cold and bland. Yet another disappointing cajun restaurant in Colorado Springs.

Re: “New German food truck boils with beer; April brings big culinary tickets

Oh! How sweet! The time is just right for me to attend! Thank goodness for stumbling here. I should sign up now for a reservation on April 19th. Tickets are pretty pricey but I know that the dishes are worthwhile to consume.

Re: “Totally Tasty Sausage Gravy, or 'Sunglasses at Night'

Chicken broth? Butter? Wait a minute...&#$$!!! I am going to have to try this platter out for myself. As a second-generation southerner (Alabama, thank you)...I'm sitting here thinking the aforementioned ingredients are heretical, lol. Blasphemy! I can't imagine my little Alabama grandma working up that roux with those things in a million years. Looking ya up, Breakfast Club! :o)

Re: “The V Bar, Springs Bikini Bar, The Ute and the Yeti

So the food is awful, but there's half naked women to make up for it? Eh... not anywhere I would go by myself, with my girlfriend's, my sister, my mother, or my boyfriend. I might be going out on a limb here, but I suspect there isn't much of a female clientele? Sounds like the bikini bar is a place my ex and his friends would frequent to awkwardly snicker at scantily clad bomb shells and throw out lame pick up lines whilst jabbing each other in the ribs.

Re: “C.B. & Potts slings safe suds, some food duds

Never found any of the 3 eateries mentioned to be very memorable, just watering holes for those who wish to get something to eat with their drinking.

Rye bread would not be gluten free. You can make a rye flavored bread with almond flour and flax seed, but it is not especially moist.

Re: “Seeds Community Cafe, Wild Cider, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

Hey rt mind sharing which pub?

Re: “Seeds Community Cafe, Wild Cider, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

Cider in America is in full Renaissance. IIRC, it's actually the fastest growing segment of alcoholic drinks. It's well worth seeking out non-mass market ciders, although some are quite good. I got hooked on them a few years ago and am fortunate that a local pub carries a very large selection.
