Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Tony...FIRE JAIME. I know 11 people..plus myself..that no longer come there because of her. She seens to hate her job and ishateful person. Maybe shes going through some stuff. Dunno, but her combination of ignoring customers and viscious UNFOUNDED verbal abuse is running businedd away. The word from people that temain is " yeah, shes like that". My question is..why is that ok?

I would say to anyone readinh this...stay away. SO many other placed...Thunder and Buttons is one and the barstaff thete will joke around AND take your order..make good drinks and are tge epitomy of great servicr. Probably why I tip Lindsey so well...HAPPILY spending $55 last Wednesday and want to go back. Go there or ANYWHERE else besides B's with'the "B"!

Re: “Christal's - Academy

This is a great store. The staff is awesome and super friendly. They are always easy to talk to and definitely helpful with any questions you might have. I have never had a bad experience going in. My husband and I have bought several toys from this store and are always satisfied 😋

Re: “8th St. Lounge

Actually I have been in a few times, the last time being Monday about 4PM when we rode up. My friend and I had Mike's Limeade and the only other customer there my friend knew. Bartenders have always been pleasant and quick.
I was teasing Haley as indicated by a ; and a ) for those who missed it. : )

Re: “8th St. Lounge

Well Robert , I disagree! You have obviously not been in lately. There are changes daily and it is a fun place to be!! Besides how would you even know what it's like when all you did was window shop! Must be very lonely out there!! Next time don't be so scared, we won't bite you!

Re: “The Buzz

The Buzz is better than previous incarnations. The live music has been good plus the staff have been friendly to me, introducing themselves and smiling as well- something most places need to learn to do. Too many places seem like they are too busy too deal with customers! Stay open til 2 okay?. Why places close at 11 or 12 just because business is slow is beyond me, when doors are locked there will be no business at all!
I would give 5 stars but any red decor has to go! Restaurants that have red walls, carpet and such do so because it has been shown diners will eat and then leave. A bar should not want customers to have a beer and go! Hope to see a patio maybe...? Thanks!

Re: “The Buzz

The Buzz is THE place to bee. James and Mia and their staff are always smiling, glad to see you, and doesn't act put out to wait on you. This is a,, big plus in my opinion, The place has a nice welcoming home bar, even if its your first time there. The musicians that come to jam here are top notch or will be in the near future and the Crowd is very supportive of the music. First jam I have every been to that the dance floor was full EVERY song during the night. If you like friendly bar staff, Great Music a

Re: “Woody’s Bar & Grill

Great people, from the owner to the patrons. Always accepting and welcoming, no matter what. This is a place you can play pool, poker, talk shop, family or politics and be respected for your opinion, all while enjoying well priced drinks and food made fresh. Daily specials, too. :) Great place to be and a home away from home.

Re: “Bargain Book Warehouse

This is honestly the best book store I have ever been to! I've always like to go here with my mom and find great reads! No matter how many times I go here, I always feel at home. The employees are always super nice and helpful. Thank you for having such a great store!

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Teri Peaceowl Senior Go in before they start playing and look for Mike T. that runs it, say "Hi" and tell him you wanna play. He will always let good musicians play, It is really not an amateur night so if you have your chops down you would be welcomed. Mike is a great guy!

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

First time in, i don't know how the drinks are because i was never served. The band sounded good, but after taking a seat at the bar, the staff walked past me twice without so much as an acknowledgement, let alone asking what i wanted to drink. The manager in guessing then took a seat out from behind the bar next to I'm assuming a regular / friend, with his back to me, and proeeded to watch the band. I more than likely won't be returning. Went to finish line, and was served within 3 minutes.

Re: “Bernie's Place

They bullied a bartender who been there for over 15 years for filing a complaint with the State of Colorado over employment practices. The owner was to have said the bartender was "too old". The State said the bar did in fact engage in retaliation which is illegal after someone files a complaint. The bartender was bullied then fired after 6 months for a bogus "infraction".
Avoid this place unless you support discrimination in employment. Bernie would never have stood for that behavior but he passed away and his ex-wife took over. She is none too bright obviously.

Re: “Colorado Coffee Merchants

I having bought my espresso beans from Eric and his staff for years. The coffee is extremely fresh, typically roasted with days of purchase. It produce sweet, complex espresso with loads of crema. The staff are consistently welcoming and pleasant.they also make delicious drinks for in-house consumption.
