Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Just to make sure my review above registers...I am posting again.

Lots of people who were excited about this place when it opened no longer even consider going...I never hear someone say, Hey I was at Trinity last night. It is an closed crowd of which, unless you are a head case, you would problem not want o be a part.

Re: “A Cut Above - Fillmore

So what am I missing here? When I click on the link for your menu I get a list of hair cut prices.! So where can the MMJ menu be opened?

Re: “Bricks Sports Bar & Grill

Bricks Sports Bar & Grill is a in the old location for Studebakers. If your looking for a place to enjoy a neighborhood feel in central Colorado Springs then this is a great place to do it. They have been doing many improvements and the food is fantastic. Live music is starting every Friday on May 12th. Plenty of free parking. Pool, darts, fooseball and lots of TV's.

Re: “Original Cannabis Growers

I'm researching getting my first MMJ card and various dispensaries in the Springs and I have to say Alan420 that if you wish to come across as knowledgeable, you need to speak English and get away from the "thug" speak. Use punctuation and words not long strings of nonsense to trash someone's opinion. Your post was no help to me at all and sorry to say, you came across as wasted or illiterate and this does not help me want to trust your opinions. I'll stop my rant everyone and continue my search. Keep it real and honest all. Have a great day.

Re: “Maggie's Farm - S. Nevada

They could take better care of their members, but other than that, THIS PLACE IS GREAT. Their meds are super dense and great quality. They have numerous strains to choose from and consistently have inventory. Maggie's business hours are easy to work with and regular. I can't wait to check out the NEW Maggie's location on Fillmore. But the best thing about this place is the patient and friendly staff at the S. Nevada location. Just ask for what Jesse recommends and you can't go wrong! Best meds under the sun baby.

Re: “Ritz Grill

Went for lunch today to try the new menu. It had a lot of interesting food that all sounded sooo good. I had The Bomb sandwich. That is a perfect name it was truly the bomb, it had egg salad and pastrami. My husband had the Peking chicken and asparagus fries which were amazing. My son had fish and chips and he liked those. OH yeah started with the Man Candy, you can't go wrong with spicy/sweet bacon.

Re: “Thunder & Buttons II

"nightowl" is obviously pitching a band which is probably friends with "nightowl" and using this review forum to get them on MTV?! Nah! Nobody could be that lame.

Re: “Rawkus

Very unprofessional staff. No respect for local acts, even though they "want to build the local scene." I've never actually been screamed at by a representative of a venue, and I've played about 90% of the venues in the Springs. I warn any act going in there to expect to be treated poorly, but I hope you have a better experience when/if you play. Timbo, the main sound guy is a pure gentleman, but the rest of the crew is pretty negative.

Sound isn't terrible, but the tin roof and concrete floors really color it. Lights aren't terrible either, they have moving heads, but they project a screen saver on the back of the stage that seems pretty corny. I'm sure you can request that off though. Stage is white, not a fan of that.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend anyone to play a show here. In fact, I would say try to get the show moved to the Black Sheep or Loft or somewhere else.

Re: “40 Thieves Hookah Lounge

40 Thieves is a solid, spacious, and comfortable hookah lounge. Out of all the hookah joints that I've visited here in Colorado Springs, this one is by far well lit while keeping the smoking ambiance. They card here too, so that is definitely respectable. The prices aren't too bad and neither is the service. In an area where there isn't much to do in the evenings, I'd definitely come back to 40 thieves to kick it with my buddies.

Re: “JP Wellness

JP Wellness is the best! I agree with you 100% santiago211! Besides having the best bud in the Springs and patient attention, they have over 40 strains in stock, plus they recently brought in several new strains. They have a huge selection of 'strain specific' oil plus shatter-wax, bubble hash and great medibles. A good selection of accessories too. You will never be disappointed with JP Wellness.

Re: “JP Wellness

i would love to give my 2 cents on Jp wellness first of all there pot is not normal its better than that they have so many strains to choose from and on top of that you get a free eighth right now if you change care givers also it don't matter how much money you have they will take great care of you in my opinion they are #1 in colorado springs
because the owner and staff really do care for us we are not just customers to theme we are family i always feel very welcome when i go there also there Friday dollar joints are the best and there house is wow but you really got to try there caviar OMG
so in my book Jp Wellness is # 1,

Re: “The Blue Star

How rare...I have been eating at the Blue Star since it opened and have always had a first rate experience on every level.

The Blue Star and Marigold's are the two best places to eat in the City...just considerably better than any similarly priced places.

Importantly, the volume is high enough that the foot is always fresh...I am actually pretty stunned by the bad review. Maybe the hubby is allergic to sea bass.

Re: “The Blue Star

My husband and I had been to blue star a handful of times since moving to the springs about a year ago. Friends of ours had talked it up and we really had seen nothing like it in Colorado Springs.
We were excited to bring my inlaws there when they came to visit for the first time. Everything seemed as usual when we first arrived, we had a table in the lounge area.
Things started going down hill when we got the appetizers. The cheese and meat plate only had one triangle of cheese and was nothing like I remember it being the last time we had ordered it. When one of our several waitresses (sounds nice until they repeat themselves and it becomes unorganized) came to clear our appetizer plates she rubbed the edge of a messy plate against my brother in laws sleeve leaving a sticky mess. We brushed that off pretty quickly though, especially after putting club soda on the spot...
Next thing I know my mother in law is sitting with her main course (salmon) in front of her and she's not touching it, I look at it and there are hairs under the salmon on her plate. When she told the waitress, the waitress offered to get her a new dinner and she comped the meal, but it just wasn't right that after the second mishap from the staff we didn't get a visit from the manager or any kind of sincere apology.
Worst part is next.... My husband woke up with TERRIBLE food poisoning the next day. He had the sea bass and no one else tried his dish. It was a violent case making for a not so great trip for his family. My husband was cooped up in our hotel in Denver all day Saturday and missed an excellent dinner in Boulder.
We are very disappointed in what a scam we fell for, this restaurant poses to be fine dining when really they are unorganized, unsanitary and unprofessional. We will not to recommending this restaurant to anyone in the future and will stay far away from it ourselves!
