The Yarn Outlet has graduated from being a discount yarn store to being a top destination for every yarn from I'm-just-learning-acrylics to designer cashmere, silk, alpaca and organic hand-painted special fibers. Their needle and accessory selection is great and it is now even less likely that you can leave without buying something. The owner is helpful and friendly and so are the knitters, of whom I am happy to be a regular one.
Channel five and Lisa are so awful, we stopped watching them over a decade ago. Hyped weather and the morning Gazette's news poorly delivered not at all understood is a waste of time to watch.
This is not the place to go unless you are a FedEx pilot without a car to go somewhere good to eat...you never hear a local even mention this historically bad place to eat.
I wasn't keen on leaving a comment until I saw the negative ones which QUITE surprised me. Since I have tried so much on the menu I feel compelled to take a moment of my time to share my experiences. I find the food over all quite lovely and take coworkers all the time. Neither the drinks or the food are too pricey at all which makes it nice for lunch, dinner or just drinks after work. Not a lot on that area of town that I want to frequent so thank goodness for this restaurant/bar being here because there are many of us DoD contractors in the area... The wait staff is fine but just like any other place I have had the great and attentive serve us and the aloof bimbo paying all her attention to the military groups or single young men.... Nothing that would make me stay away though. The ambiance is priceless... always shocked it is not packed.... but again who wants to hang out after hours in this less than desirable area when you can go elsewhere in town? I will keep going back... and keep taking coworkers, friends and family. I KNOW it would be horrible to see it ever close... that is for sure.
The Centennial location has always had careless wait staff...but now the sushi preparation is careless too. I think they just run up to Kingsoopers to fill orders these days. I just actually threw up my dinner from tonight...no more chances for this hole.
This is by far the nicest , most professional center I've come across in Colorado Springs. The pricing is outstanding and the quality exceptional. Everyone working seemed generally happy to be there and very willing to help me identify the right medicine for my needs. I have found my caregiver in the Healing Canna and I won't be looking elsewhere. Highly recommended.
Sorry, but I wasn't impressed at all with this facility. Pricing doesn't reflect the quality and I didn't feel the people working wanted my business, or didn't care if I bought from them or not. I won't be back. Bad 1st impression, lasting impression.
Just a bar at night, but during the day this is BBQ HEAVEN! I have lived all over (Thanks to the military... and I am from Texas where BBQ is a serious matter and not to be taken lightly so trust me when I rave.)
I have been to Kasey's DOZENS of times and every time I drag another geeky coworker with me in there they are forever thankful and in BBQ HEAVEN!
The 3-meat sampler is the best deal... just get that and plan on taking leftovers home. Oh! I saw an e-mail come out today at work saying that we are going to be having Kasey's come in to our office building so people can go and order a plate to take back to their offices.... WOOHOO! Hopefully this is a regular thing for us... AND I hope he has LOTS of food because we have 300 people between our two buildings of DoD contractors:) I love good food and don't care if the place is nothing fancy.
By the way, I have tried alllll the sides and never been disappointed in anything... EVER!
More of a talk station than a news station, but they do have the best radio newscasts in the area. KRDO and ABC News go a lot better together than KVOR and ABC.
This is the absolute worst station in the Pikes Peak area. Horrific affiliation with the worst broadcast news organization (NBC)- check. Ignoring the wildfire that threatened a good part of the Springs last summer while showing their Pueblo bias- check. Paying off the Gazette and various community events in order to claim Springs local status- check. Hopefully Springs viewers will wake up and realize that 11, 13, and even 21 are better than this waste of television space.
Good conservative lineup, but below average local news coverage (compared to KRCC and KRDO). And does the Springs really need 2 ABC News radio stations?
Would you believe that this station has fans (and strategically placed bumper stickers) in the Soho section of New York City?
The best of the Colorado Springs stations as far as news. They blew away the competition on covering last summer's inferno. And their newscasts can be viewed on the internet from anywhere- a big plus when you're on vacation and want to catch up on the news from home.
Typical top 40 station- but with a fresher playlist than usual for a smaller market like Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
Best of the local stations as far as contemporary music goes- but a bit too Clear Channel packaged. And for some reason, their signal is weak in the northern sections of the Springs.
If you didn't enjoy the food maybe you should not of gone back 3 times? My family and I have eaten there multiple times and the food has always been just what we expected and more. The service at Freddy's is on par and they are always quick to meet our needs. I'm sorry you have such an awful opinion about Freddy's hopefully it made you feel better to bash them on here.
I was with AOM from the beginning of their business when they were located on Colorado Ave. We were like family, and then the owners moved to a larger, more prosperous business, and everything changed. They have secretaries and front to be high-end. I miss the guys so much but you can't do much when people decide to be more big-business than people oriented. Do not shop here folks, you are a $$ in their eyes. The owners, middle-men, secretaries, etc. DO NOT SHOP HERE.
Like I said, I miss the boys dearly, but I would hate to go to them in an emergency. I have shopped with them for three years, and they refuse to recognize my face- (it is up to them to serve to you or not). Very, very sad with this outcome, and will miss Luke, Billy and Aaron dearly. Wish the feeling was mutual, but money changes people.
I used to drop 100-130 dollars every two weeks for a few years in spite of driving 20+ miles/visit, but it certainly wasn't their problem and let me know.
Sounds yummy to me...the one near Baptist road is really good. Maybe they just don;t have the deep fryer turned up high enough at the Powers store.
Hands down, the crappiest chain restaurant on the Powers corridor. The Chicago dog is NOT a chicago dog. The fries suck. The burgers are visually similar to a Steak and Shake...however, these are NOT good. I actually like Steak and Shake and I legitimately wanted to like this place. This place is the overpriced crap food at at amusement parks and resort's. It just blows me away that people on the east side of town will fill a horrible restaurant on a Monday night with the absolute worst food in town. Hell, the plain hot dog is probably the worst hot dog I've ever had. The fries are also the most tasetless fries I've ever had. From my THREE visits...I'm thinking this may be the worst restaurant I've ever visited. But hey, it's hard to find a parking space....so maybe I'm just some hipster trying to look cool at Fredddy's. Not even a star from me.
finally someone who gets what this town needs, good clean all ages live music without the drama of a bar...cant wait to check this place out
