Re: “Pikes Peak Alternative Health & Wellness

Hey Colorado Springs wake up and visit the best, cleanest, and lowest prices ever in Colorado Spring dispensary. That's right I'm speaking of this little hidden away place Pikes Peak Alternative Wellness Center. I was driving down Tejon looking for a new dispensary that would at least have people who would smile and not get pushy like Broadmoore Wellness staff does,but that's another review.At Pikes Peak Alternative Health and Wellnes I was greeted by a lady with a smile and her name that was refreshing. After all the checking of i.d.s I was taken into the dispensary and it was explained to me that while the shelves may be low right now (harvest time) they would make sure my needs were met AND THEY WERE. I normally wouldn't eat eadibles however this place has the most delious browines I have ever eaten. The brownie want't dry nor did it have a overwhelming taste of hash in them. The price I paid was only $8.00 (low price for the size you get).I also purchased their homemade candies called Gems which I like for I can use them while I work. I have signed my red card to this lovely place and I am glad I did for now I am earning 5% off my next order and that is a great bonus since times and money are so tight. I did purchase a pre-roll and I can hardly wait until their harvest is in the pre-roll knocked me on my butt.
Glad I stopped here. Thanks one and all at Pikes Peak Health and Wellnes you have made my month. Sincerely: Hot Butter Rum 192.3

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Beer is good but service usually really sucks. I avoid the overpriced food and the owner. I do like the diverse guest tap offerings but they too are overpriced. Have a couple cold Flos and go down the road to more friendly people.

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.

Re: “The Yellow King

This place is terrible. I called Tuesday (8/20/2013) to ask if they were selling FTV:20 and ask if they were taking pre-orders. I was told by the gentleman on the phone that no they were selling them first come first serve and they were going to get 10 of them and they would be for sale for slightly above msrp. I explained I wanted one for my boyfriends birthday and he said that he usually opens a little early and if I got there early when he opened up I could get one if I was the first one there. I came in Thursday night (tonight) and was told that they had five FTV:20's and they were all "spoken for" I told the person behind the counter exactly what I was told Tuesday and he said that person I spoke with was not handling the FTV:20's and he had no idea what he was talking about despite the fact that gentleman I spoke with Tuesday said he also owned the store.

The man I spoke with then changed his story saying they did have ten but that wasnt really a lot (other places also got ten, twenty at the most since Wizards of the Coast made it a limited set) and that FTV:20 was like a "bar of gold" and said he wouldnt be selling them in the store. So were they spoken for? Or is he going to jack the price up and sell them on e-bay later? How would Wizards of the Coast feel if they knew this store was ripping people off instead of spreading their product for the MSRP of $40?

I was informed I could get one online for 250 and the man at the counter asked me questions about all the other places in town. I told him they did pre-orders and they sold them for 40 dollars like they were supposed to. All his customers heard me say that so I hope someone was a pre-order person who can tell if he's scamming people.

In short from the ten minutes I spent in his store it was dirty, the carpet was filthy, it smelled sickly sweet like garbage that had cheap deodorant sprayed over it. The person at the front counter was rude, lied to me, and the merchandise, that I have seen sold all over town, was marked up to twice the price. Do yourself a favor and go to places like Enchanted Realms, Gamer Haven, and Muse. Even Dalez, who has a history of being expensive is a better place than this.

Caveat emptor.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Trinity has great beers! and the guest taps are bar none. However, the owner is not a very great guy, I have seen him stumbling drunk in the bar harassing other patrons and kicking people out that have done no wrong. He will try to pick fights with others who aren't in 100% compliance with his philosophy on beer. I have brought a lot of friends here and have never been so disappointed in an owner and a business. I really LOVED this brewery but the lack of professionalism and poor service from the bar staff has stopped me from coming here.

Re: “Pikes Peak Alternative Health & Wellness

For 3yrs. I have been with Pikes Peak Alternative Health and Wellness. There are 3 main reason I stay with this center:(I do visit other mmj centers monthly and rate them on my legal pad). 1). The ladies who greet you at the door are poliet, always have a smile and check my card and i.d. all the time (other centers need todo this).
2). When I enter the dispensary with one or both of these ladies I see how clean, organized and professional the dispensary is there is no lack of acknowledge from these ladies. They ask questions and are deeply caring when it comes to helping people and me with my pain! 3). Hats of to the growers here!! The buds are not only tastey and do the job that is expected the growers also take took time to talk with me (they are shy but they answer all questions). Take notes other dispensaries this little mom and pop shop is clean, friendly and the best in Colorado Springs (oops their prices are to be appericated). I thank all of you at Pikes Peak Alternatiive and I will continue my purchases from you. Good Job!!.

Re: “Townhouse Lounge

Great bands/music but the bartenders and most of the waitresses have a bad attitude and service is very slow. Especially on Thursday, Eric the Thursday night bartender sucks in so many ways, he's slow (I'm tired from my full time job he complains!), and Eric is a total pig towards women. Bartender Shea on Tuesdays and Waitress Jennifer could use an attitude tune up too. Chad, who claims to be the owner seems disconnected from what's going on.

Wonderful staff members include waitresses Annie & Mary, both JJ's and Zack from the kitchen.

I love this bar! My meet my husband here a year ago. The owner is awesome and make everyone feel welcome. She allowed my husband and I to get married at the bar. We always feel welcome and love the live bands that they have every Friday night.

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

As an Irish American I prefer Quinn's, but am really offended when Italians come in when I am drinking a Harp, and they order a Peroni...it offends my tastes and my heritage, and I demand reparations and casino rights on Monument creek.

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

A Hogan is a traditional home style of the Navajo people pronounced hooghan in Navajo. The Navajo Hogan in the north of Colorado Springs is of this style, and thus named for it. Stop inside and you can see the original “Hogan” plus the additional “Hogan” that was added late. So Real Navajo Dale get over it because there is something Navajo about this place.

Re: “Organica Herb & Tea Co.

Fabulous spices! More importantly, great natural products for optimizing the body's ability to heal itself. I am feeling better, increasingly more active and am off pain meds. So grateful to have found Organica!

Re: “Bricks Sports Bar & Grill

In response to KP Reynolds. I am the owner and operator of Bricks Sports Bar & Grill. I will state absolutely that we DO NOT refill bottles and I resent the implication and the method in which this tripe is being voiced. I am often at Bricks and I will certainly take the time to address your accusations in person should you care to. Simply call 638-2022 to set up a time to meet. I am more then happy.

Re: “Bricks Sports Bar & Grill

Went there with friends in July (2013) and ordered call liquor. What we got was definitely not the liquor we ordered and we're all well enough acquainted with that particular brand to know exactly what it isn't. Double-checked our bill and we still got charged for call so the bartender heard us correctly. One of us was watching the pour and the right bottle was used so they must be refilling call liquor bottles with cheap liquor. We just paid and left. No sense on coming back to a place that cheats us. I wonder if the law knows about this illegal practice?

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

Dale,

We are all Americans at this point. If someone is Irish they might like the drink as much as an Indian, or a Scot or a Kraut. Take responsibility for yourself and don't blame a bunch of folks having a drink and good meal in a place that has such amazing architecture, of which you should be proud.

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

I feel sorry for you and those with the problem mentioned although this has nothing to do with this venue, being a drunk is a choice this is not the 1800"s when the Indians were exploited. Help work with your people to honor themselves, no one is forcing anyone, the word Navajo in these times is used w/o prejudice .
