Re: “Da Mi Korean, Larkburger, Marco's Pizza

I don't believe that much is organic. On their website, click on the "keeping it natural" tab under "about us." (http://larkburger.com/about-us/keeping-it-…) One of our grievances when we reviewed them last may (http://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/high…) was that they served commercial meat, which felt a bit like greenwashing considering the other care for sustainability.

Everything at Lark Burger is organic plus they compost and recycle.

Re: “Da Mi Korean, Larkburger, Marco's Pizza

But is the kale organic? Otherwise it's not so healthy for you.

Re: “Sunny side up

Suzies homemade food is incomparable with Denny's " old crank" it's not Starbucks so no fancy coffee blends but for the average person it's good coffee with darn good food and service for a great price. Worth trying for yourself

Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

Whatever, dude. Just as a New Yorker I find it amazing. Thanks for sharing your awesome experience of NOT eating an authentic Reuben sandwich in the Big Apple. LMAO!

Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

As long as we are on the topic, there are two types of knish: potato and kasha (buckwheat). The kasha knish is baked but the potato knish can be baked, grilled, or deep fried. A potato knish should taste like thick, peppery mashed potatoes. The outside should be flaky if it is baked or chewy if it is fried, but never doughy. I think Mr. Schniper's knish was underdone.

Most New Yorkers, I believe, eat them plain, but I like to dip them in ketchup.

Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

I thought I had made it clear I was talking about kosher delis in NYC. I did not think one could get matzoh ball soup or knishes anywhere else. However, since I left NYC many decades ago, a new category has popped up, called "kosher style" which is not really kosher but features many traditional Jewish dishes. Katz's Delicatessen is listed in Wikipedia as a "kosher style (not a kosher)" restaurant.

Before the emergence of "kosher style" delis, I am guessing, one would have had to go to a German deli to get a reuben sandwich (or a ham and cheese on rye, for that matter). I do not know for sure because I never did see one on any menu when I lived there (which may be only because I was never in the right place).

Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

I think you are confusing a NY Deli with a Kosher NY Deli. I too am from (upstate) NY, and grew up on Rubens at our NY Deli. A Kosher deli is where you get only Kosher Jewish foods. My mom is from Brooklyn and loved their Jewish bakeries along with their deli.

Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

I grew up in New York City, but I never heard of a Reuben Sandwich before I moved to Atlanta. No New York deli serving Matzoh Ball Soup and Knishes would ever serve a Reuben Sandwich, as the mixing of meat and dairy products in the same meal is not kosher.

Re: “Ivywild School as a whole exceeds expectations

Just got back from Ivywild on a Friday. Honestly, what they have here is a gold mine. Great food, great drinks, and an atmosphere that is welcoming, but not fabricated. Being that the school is old, and that the brewery fits in perfectly with the surroundings, the scene doesn't feel pushed on you. It feels very natural. From the bathrooms with the elementary writing on the walls to the brick walls and hardwood floors, to the shuffleboard table, we had one of the best times in years. While the other poster says they've gone away from their original base group, I believe that they've expanded from a small time lounge to a leading contender in the COS nightlife. They may have lost one or two hipsters who only enjoy the original "before it was cool" atmosphere, they have gained 10 other patrons looking for a bar that welcomes dogs on the porch and an amazingly welcoming staff. I feel conflicted in recommending this place as the go to in Colorado Springs, because I don't wanna see it grow into the next unobtainable "Golden Bee" of Colorado, but my experience was flawless, and I wish to see a place that deserves my business flourish.

Re: “Ivywild School as a whole exceeds expectations

Bristol has basically abandoned and shunned a small but loyal portion of his customer base who patronized his business since the very beginning in the early 90's. There are too many quality craft beer establishments popping up in our community, who want our business. That is where my dollars will now go. I used to love to go to the old tasting room on Tejon, because it was more intimate and the relationship between customers and staff made it homey. Since the move to Ivywild, our group feels largely ignored, Bristol and the new staff just want the almighty dollar. Go luck, Mike, it was fun while it lasted. I wont be back, and other longtime loyal customers feel the same way.

Re: “The Pinery at the Hill opens and Woody P's new pizzeria

I'm all for The Pinery being a successful business. However, as a concerned neighbor of the business, I am concerned that each added business proposal will only lead to more infringements on our cozy little neighborhood. Already, though it was indicated at the initial meeting that parking lot lights would be established in such a way as to not infringe on the surrounding neighborhood, we spend the night with very bright lights beaming straight through our bedroom window. I hope the business is community-minded and wants to work with the community as a good neighbor and not just for the purpose of having higher revenues.

Re: “Dogtooth Coffee Co: The great good place

Lui,

So I came in on Saturday and it was wonderful.

We beat th crowd, but your system for keeping things coming and the line moving worked just fine.

The coffee was hands down the best in town...really really just right, flavorful without being acidic.

The food was fresh from the oven...the empanadas were wonderful, especially when topped with your salsa.

I will be back...maybe even tomorrow!

Thanks for your hard work...you deserve to succeed, and we all need to support you so we can have a fun and delicious first class place like this in town..
