Re: “The Flow of Mexico

Best Mex downtown if not citywide. Simple as that.

Re: “City to expand bus service

Also a return of the free Tejon shuttle downtown would be the next logical step as well. Especially if local businesses paid for it via ad space.

Re: “The little bus that couldn't

Once again we are disappointed in our lack on inter-departmental organization. Something the a live article failed to mention is what the FREX was originally created for: A test study to determine the rider traffic across the front range; all in order to build a light rail connecting the hubs along I-25. From pueblo, Csprings, Denver to Boulder. Of course that idea was resisted and failed to materialize due to various reasons.
Long story short this 'city' has failed in its ability to even see potential growth in many venues. No wonder why so many natives have given up and moved away.
Thank you figureheads and our illustrious backward thinking Village Council for falling short my whole life living here. Now to find someplace where I can take my future kids with a selection of parks and a place to teach them how to swim......

Re: “A shrinking feeling

I would have to respectfully disagree with this review on a couple points.

First off, The Rabbit Hole has never, to my knowledge, claimed to
source 100% local ingredients. Rather they, like a couple other
quality restaurants here in town; prepare their menu items with local
produce and meats when POSSIBLE. As any person well versed in the
culinary industry knows, that market price and availability of quality
ingredients is often times is in a constant state of flux. Especially
here in Colorado Springs.
Had the reviewer actually met with the owner and/or the head chef;
this crucial factor among others would've been more apparent and
clearly and fairly represented, rather than just assumed.  After all
we aren't judging the restaurant's internal ordering metrics correct?

Second, everything I personally have had off the menu has been unique
and refreshingly fantastic. Juicy Lucy, Airline Chicken, Rabbit
Meatloaf, Butcher's block, asparagus, Filet, are all on point. The
quality and price cannot be matched.  This fine esstablishment is a
much welcomed addition to downtown Colorado Springs (I recall the
dismal days when all there was on Tejon was Jose Muldoons and Old
Chicago, Walgreens and a Gart Brothers. So yes I do speak with some
experience and authority)

All in all they're hitting the right notes in quality, consistency and
innovation. While at the same time maintaining a classy, relaxed, and
warm atmosphere (big kudos to all the staff! Front and back of the
house) something other nearby establishments could  learn from.
Interesting side point: they're only 60 days old. Kinks are to be
expected (especially when the ones cited in the above article are
quite trivial in the bigger picture)

I do know that fellow patrons worth their salt will judge for
themselves on how excellent this place really is, rather than the
slanted viewpoint of the author of the above review.

Check it out for youself You will not be disappointed.

Cheers

Re: “Memo to mayoral candidates

Spot on. Great story. I was born and raised in this city and could recognize and agree with every single point. It's time this city council got some balls. Let's hope for the best with this new set up.
