I was thinking the same thing about the wage. We are members of the ymca and as soon as the election was over they said they had to raise the rates because of the increase in wages. What a bunch of BS. It's barely going up this next year. When I have checked their jobs online, this last year, I saw they are already paying most people around $9 an hour, so its not gonna hurt them. Cost of living has gone up a lot in the last 10 to 15 years, so should wages but companies just want to keep all the extra themselves.
The minimum wage for cooks and back of the house restaurant staff will be $9.30 this year. I loved Marigold, but if they can't find the means or the heart to pay their staff this much, then good riddance.
I wonder if C. Springs can support Prime 25, The Famous, Cowboy Star and McKenzie's, all of which feature entrees in the $30+ range. I would look for at least one of these to close this year, especially with C. Springs per capita income lower than it was in 2005.

Totally understood. That's one of the challenges of us being a weekly paper — when news comes in on a Wed., Thurs., or Fri. and we're waiting to hit racks again on the following Wednesday. We'll often put up teasers on the blog ahead of time, and in this case, best I can say is I and the INDY had tweeted it late last week. Please follow us both on Twitter and Facebook and hopefully we'll get you the word ahead of time on the next event you're interested in.
Would have loved to know about the meeting on July 13th before the article was published on July 13th.

I was excited about this until I checked out their menu. Just 1 vegetarian option? :(
The local building folks need to get a clue these people require you to over-engineer everything now so costs have skyrocketed and it takes months to get anything accomplished.
Brewer's Republic and Underground are (were?) great places. However, I question their business practices based on changes made in the first few days/weeks of ownership. On day 1 they increased all drink prices by 8.25% by adding tax to the list price of any drinks. Food prices also increased. No more happy hour food specials (used to be half price pizza and appetizers until 6pm). No more buy 10 get 1 free drink cards. The lights in the Underground are like sun lamps turned to their highest levels and instead of music you get to listen to television shows. Good luck.
Fantastic food! Coupled with very reasonable prices and a pleasant atmosphere Ahmed and his family are a pleasure – you must check it out
Bread as it should be! Slowly rising and made of freshly milled grains. I have a feeling many people will try it once and never go back to commercially made bread.
Thanks Adam for letting us know about Lucy I'm Home — wasn't yet on our radar.
Congratulations to the 2nd Cuban Food Truck to come along in Colorado Springs. My family and I are anxious to try the menu. How lucky are we Cubans in Colorado Springs to have not 1, but 2, Cuban food trucks here in town. If Abuelo's is even close to as good as the "Lucy Im Home" food truck, we are all the richer. Viva la Cuba!
Mmmmm... Beer, coffee and bakery. Can't wait to move our office there. Should start dieting now.
Checking in with chef Brenner this morning, he says he wasn't able to hit his goal of opening by today, but currently thinks he may be able to hit a Monday Jan. 11 launch day. We'll update as needed.
Looking forward to flying from Saint Louis to Colorado
To eat the Best Food from Chef Eric Brenner..Always went to his Resturant "Moxy"...Great experience and Great food...
Mathew is a liar! Please view the entire story on their website. He is a small town writer trying to make it big with twisting stories into lies! He should work for the national enquirer.
He pretends to be a food critic while destoying new restaurants with his twisted lies. He has no training to be a food critic but still poses as one.
He is be sued for pretending to be someone he is not.
Good cocktail menu, but poor,slow service, music was way too loud.
Ohana Kava Bar is going to be a great place to hang out and relax!
