Re: “Happy Belly Tacos announces planned opening, pop-up dinner

Piglatin caribbean and pork belly tacos are the bomb. How can you go wrong with either. I enjoy being so close to the restaurant, but also enjoy the atmosphere of a food truck. See ya all soon.

Re: “Vittles for Vests makes it easy — and delicious — to equip cops

Walk a mile in their shoes. Cop work is not fun.

It's safe to say that there are plenty of bad guys with an arsenal that the cops can't match. Mix your average drunk/high and disorderly types who think a handgun solves all problems. It's dangerous work, and I wouldn't do it for the paltry salaries they are paid.

There's some overkill in the "toys" they have, but you don't go into a gun fight with a knife.

Security is 50% preparation. It's better to have the tools you need and not use them than to need tools you don't have in an emergency.

Re: “Vittles for Vests makes it easy — and delicious — to equip cops

Seems to me that police and the military get much, much more than their fair share of tax dollars, so uh no, I dont want to contribute..... Save this kind of stuff for health care and schools, they are perennially shortchanged while police get all the toys the want....,

Re: “Vittles for Vests makes it easy — and delicious — to equip cops

What?

Really? When CS showed up recently at a potential hostage situation (one person - 15 or more cops), I saw armored vehicles (complete with a gun turret on top - for what, a future machine gun?), flash grenades, drones, etc. and cops wearing vests...all of them. What I didn't see were the robot bomb detectors, helicopters, facial recognition software, surveillance cameras, tasers, advanced pepper sprays, and everything else being offered up to the thin blue line that seems to be a mile thick in pursuit of a pseudo-militarized domestic world. What's next, a submarine for the reservoirs?

State legislators, local officials and others approve the expenditures and how it's spent, so I suggest going back to drawing board and determining what is really crucial, and stop acting as if ISIS is about to parachute into the Springs and invade the mountain West.

I'll guess you have to raise taxes again because I'm not doling out shit anymore...

Re: “Vittles for Vests makes it easy — and delicious — to equip cops

What? I bet they don't have a shortage of weapons or ammunition, do they? Tanks (complete with a gun turret on top), drones, flash grenades, tasers, advanced pepper sprays, military grade surveillance equipment. I mean that's what I saw when the CS cops responded to a potential hostage situation near my house. Even if it was given to them by the feds, there is serious maintenance and training involved here.

Why are citizens increasingly asked to give more and more to the police and firefighters (how many not-for-profits are there in America now, 1 million plus?)? The police are always clamoring for more money, telling us that our safety depends on it. Ugg...

Re: “Red Leg Brewing Company announces new, expanded facility near Garden of the Gods

Hopefully they build the new tap room so the noise levels will not drive you out. I enjoy Red Leg's beer, but the noise level at there current location drives me to go somewhere else.

Re: “Maté Factor's Twelve Tribes community called out by Vice

So this article just repeated the Vices comments without actually taking the spokesperson up on his offer to answer any questions? Great journalism

My comment is a bit biased, but genuine nonetheless! The food truck characterizes their personality and the food is unsurpassed. ~ mom

Re: “Aluminum and steel tariffs worry local craft brewers

Trump told us and showed us in EVERY way possible who and what he was, and what he stood for. If you voted for him, then you are getting what you apparently wanted, and now deserve . No right to complain after-the-fact. You need to accept it and move on, and feel the guilt for the horrible mistake you made!

Re: “Sunbird Mountain Grill & Tavern to close

Any word on what will be taking its place in that venue? I heard a ViewHouse from the successful Denver chain. So much potential at that location. The food at the Sunbird was just lousy! I cant understand why it took 5 years for their BBQ idea to fail.

Fond memories of The Sunbird. Sad to see it go.
