Re: “Blind faith

This is so well-deserved. Jon clearly retains the spirit of snowboarding in Blindside. He is all about the experience, stocking good quality stuff, not the most hyped and sharing unbiased advice. He is also all about sharing the love of the sport and sharing his passion. We got talking about boards one day and he asked how I liked my board -- another Colorado brand. I told him I really liked it. He shared that it was indeed a good brand and then suggested I try a Venture just for grins, so I demo'd one this last winter -- no pressure, just a curiosity. I am buying one this fall. I truly believe it wasn't about the sale, but was about sharing the love of the brand and the sport. Finally, Jon's board and ski tuning is amazing and his customer service is purely about service -- there is no hidden agenda here. If you love to ride (skis or boards) you need to swing by. Great shop, great guy. Good for the sport and the Springs to be sure.

Asking the Indy to fact check is like asking a lion to go vegan. It's just not in their nature.

Re: “Best of 2008: Let's Party

Just a note the kitchen at Will's Sport Bar has closed. Very bad decision as they had some of the best tasting food for a sports bar.

Re: “Best of 2008: In Vogue

This is for the so called "best bust". First of all, this is why I pulled this so called paper from my restraunts. Check your facts- nothing was confinscated from Shrap Metal- I repeat-nothing.Thats why they're still open.Let me know when SOMEONE from the media wants to state the actual truth about ANYTHING then maybe I'll listen. GO JOHN McCAIN!!!!

Re: “Best of 2008: Haute Cuisine Winners Index

I would like to see these "local" papers that tend to take a focus on "local" issues limit these best of awards to business' that remain local. As a community paper the focus of support should be local business. The springs has a wonderful nich for small independent business and they could all use a little help getting the spotlight their way in this society that shops more on brand recognition than quality.

I still think a good category would be Best Local Blog. Wonder why?

Re: “Best of 2007

It is sad that some of the 2007 winners are chain restaurants. It should only be Colorado Springs local business.

Re: “An embarrassment of riches

Congratulations on consecutive Gold wins! It makes me wonder why YOU weren't featured on the cover of Volume Two of the 'Best Of' edition. You've been around for many years and and with all your honors should have received the "glory" of the front page instead of a bunch of tattooed idiots!

Re: “A site to be seen

On any weekend night here in Colorado Springs, the cumulative IQ of all of the denizens roaming Tejon Street still wouldn't equal the collective knowledge of a aquarium full of sea monkeys... In fact, there is always the very real danger of a gigantic, brain-sucking, "anti--IQ" black hole forming out of the massive concentration of sheer stupidity that exists within a two block area. Think about it- We are safer from terrorists than we are from these brain dead hicks....

Re: “Haute Cuisine: First-Place Winners

Im so glad that homogenous chains score well. Shows how the army folks in Co Springs lack imagination.
