Re: “Prime 25 opens in Ivywild; Red Leg announces new brew

I was thinking the same thing about the wage. We are members of the ymca and as soon as the election was over they said they had to raise the rates because of the increase in wages. What a bunch of BS. It's barely going up this next year. When I have checked their jobs online, this last year, I saw they are already paying most people around $9 an hour, so its not gonna hurt them. Cost of living has gone up a lot in the last 10 to 15 years, so should wages but companies just want to keep all the extra themselves.

Re: “Prime 25 opens in Ivywild; Red Leg announces new brew

The minimum wage for cooks and back of the house restaurant staff will be $9.30 this year. I loved Marigold, but if they can't find the means or the heart to pay their staff this much, then good riddance.

I wonder if C. Springs can support Prime 25, The Famous, Cowboy Star and McKenzie's, all of which feature entrees in the $30+ range. I would look for at least one of these to close this year, especially with C. Springs per capita income lower than it was in 2005.

The Famous has one of the best filet mignons I have ever had. Quality meat and they know how to cook it. Can't beat it and the price is fair.

Re: “Tlaquepaque: Heaven by Jalisco

Antonio is THE nicest man and the food is AMAZING. We eat there once or twice a week. Super fresh produce and finally someplace that seasons meat with sauces to die for. FINALLY a Mexican restaurant worth driving to!

Who goes to a steakhouse to review a drink and dessert? Thanks for nothing.

Re: “Bean Pedaler, Old Chicago, Bubba's 33

Why are you reviewing chains? Old Chicago in a new location? The ridiculously busy Bubba's? Really... They all have enough business. Everyone already know about all the chains in town. I want to learn about local places. Please review local places and not chains that have moved or that everyone already knows about. I would expect those reviews from the gazette not the independent...
