Re: “KOAA-TV NBC 5

You made an announcement on your morning show at 6 this morning that there is a hotel opening up I think in Manitou Springs you said that It allows you to legally smoke pot in your room at that motel the first of its kind you announced. just to bring you up to date there is a motel called the Manitou Inn that gives you weed when you check in you get an 1 gram for staying one night you get an eighth if you stay one week they have a special room behind the motel where you can go down and smoke your weed and drink your beer and other words just a great big party kids running in and out of this weed infested place and the police know about it and do nothingInn. I realize that weed is legal but for persons over 21 children should not be allowed in the party room as they call it. just to update you on your false information.

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

I haven't been there since last summer, since I've cut back on my shopping while getting rid of my excess inventory, but it's been one of my favorites stores to find unique and different things, so I hate to see bad comments about it. They sell everything from Antiques to handmade to garage sale stuff, which is why it's so fun, you never know what you'll find. The prices also range from overpriced, to great deals. I don't go downtown very often, but make a special trip now and then just for the Treasure Shoppe, and have been going off and on for years, so can't believe they've gone so far downhill in a year. If you just want antiques, stick to the actual antique stores, since just because they sell some antiques, doesn't make them an "antique" store. A lot of places are combining antiques with other things these days, which is great for people like me, and like they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure. I've always found great things there, at decent prices, since I look for items to resell myself. It's in the top of my top 10 stores to shop, so I really don't know what people are complaining about, they're obviously shopping for something specific and are looking in the wrong store. No matter, the Treasure Shoppe definitely gets a thumbs up from me.

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

Dont waste your time at this places !!!!! Ive rarely EVER seen SO MUCH JUNK AND TRASH packed into one place . Walking through the store i was baffled WHERE ARE THE ANTIQUES ????? All i saw was a bunch of CHEAP OVERPRICED MOSTLY CHINESE IMPORTED CRAP trying to be passed off as collectibles .This is one of the biggest collection of pretty much useless CRAP ive ever seen !!! The word ANTIQUES need be forever stricken from the Shoppes name .Things are grossly overpriced and there is more current imported junk than should be in one place . There are NO mancave items as advertised and the best ANTIQUE i saw in the store was ME you can find much better stuff at the crappiest booth at any flea market than you ll encounter here. TREASURE SHOPPE needs be renamed Mary Ellens Lame Gifts and Chinese Imports. Your time at this stop will be totally wasted .Spend your time ANYWHERE but this cheap knock off of an antique store.Youll be severely disappointed and your parking meter fare will be wasted money.Donate the quarter to the closest homeless person and cut your losses.ZERO STARS MINUS STARS ACTUALLY.What a DUMP.!!!!!!

Re: “Royal Castle Lounge & Grill

Great show at the Royal Castle Lounge last night. The headliner, Captain Wails and the Harpoons, put on a good show. Also caught the warm up band, The Youthful Nothings. This is a really good up and coming Punk/Grunge band. Royal Castle Lounge is a nice venue! Highly recommend you stop by and listen to some good music!

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

This was The WORST experience i have ever witnessed in a biker bar ! I saw a bouncer wearing a Kilt Pick up a 5ft tall woman and carry her and drop her for NO reason I was watching the whole thing ! I own 2 such bars in Texas and I have seen & delt with alot of lawsuits ! This one is a huge liability & i hope the woman goes to authorities & a Attorney ! She should also fear for her safety ! I was a witness to it and called the police to let them know i was a witness and live out of state but will come back if needed to STOP this man !

Re: “Ritz Grill

We just had our wedding reception at Ritz Grill and I can't even begin to find words for the service, food, and the entire amazing experience. From the time we met Amberdawn and began scheduling our reception, to her incredible team that took care of our party on the night of our reception - everything was PERFECT! Riley and Christy (our bartender and server) were loved by everyone in our party! They took great care of everyone (and Christy makes GREAT drinks!), and above all else, all the kids that were in attendance were treated like royalty as they sat up at the bar, ordered their "drinks," and chatted with the bartenders. The food was delicious and loved by everyone, and Riley knew who had food allergies, and what they were before we even had a chance to confirm everything with him. If you are looking for a cool atmosphere, amazing food and service, and to top it off - AFFORDABLE - Ritz Grill is as great as it gets!

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

If there was a way to leave a zero star rating I would. They are extremely over priced, I have seen items in the store in horrible condition and not even cleaned being priced for what you can find it brand new at a store. They always switch locations and change the business name as soon as enough people realize they are being ripped off, the store has been the bargain bin and willies treasures previously. They dont offer refunds or anything but yet they dont check whether their items even work or not and quite frequently they dont work and you are stuck with what you bought not working. If you are considering being a vendor and selling things through their store I encourage you to reconsider. The owners wilma and sandra lynch feel that because they own the building they are entitled to take what they want from you. If you do become a vendor at this location I suggest keeping a constant inventory of your things to make sure everything that should be there is still there.

Re: “The Blue Star

The food quality and the service is just not holding up to history of this place. People mention the wine list, but in this day and age, I can have any bottle of wine I want dropped at my door for 1/3 the price. If I'm going to pay the premium for the food and wine, I expect good service. Unfortunately, I believe the blue star has lost the edge in the service arena.

Re: “West Side Bargain Mart

We recently started going to Cheapies Discount Store located on Fillmore where the old Dollar World was located. They are still in the process of stocking the store, but they have some really high quality products and the food is not expired. The store is clean and the staff is really friendly. Check 'em out.

Re: “Coyote's Coffee Den

Fremont County's best coffee! I love the service and the owners are great! I chose to pay more for a cup of coffee at the Coyote Coffee Den rather than the local gas station! The Breakfast Burritos are the best in the County also!

Re: “Triple Nickel Tavern

soulesslemming How dare you call me a racist when you do not know me. Try reading my review again as obviously you have a short attention span and low comprehension skills. You do not like Nazis? How about you try living in a police state where 2.3 million citizens are in prison, property is seized and without due process. You already do if you live in this country. You also must be about 21, old enough to drink and do not know American history. You also do not realize that you are a bigot but you are. You thump your chest and claim your "ideals" have more clout than money, money for a cancer victim of all things. It is easy to be stupid I have heard, is that true? Ever hear of The Bill of Rights? What is the First Amendment? Go ahead and look it up. Ideals...my ass.
