Re: “Kasey's Bar & Grill

Just a bar at night, but during the day this is BBQ HEAVEN! I have lived all over (Thanks to the military... and I am from Texas where BBQ is a serious matter and not to be taken lightly so trust me when I rave.)

I have been to Kasey's DOZENS of times and every time I drag another geeky coworker with me in there they are forever thankful and in BBQ HEAVEN!

The 3-meat sampler is the best deal... just get that and plan on taking leftovers home. Oh! I saw an e-mail come out today at work saying that we are going to be having Kasey's come in to our office building so people can go and order a plate to take back to their offices.... WOOHOO! Hopefully this is a regular thing for us... AND I hope he has LOTS of food because we have 300 people between our two buildings of DoD contractors:) I love good food and don't care if the place is nothing fancy.

By the way, I have tried alllll the sides and never been disappointed in anything... EVER!

Re: “Tam O'Shanter Pub

This bar has been around for longer than most have even lived here... Although it has had it's "hay day" many years ago... it really is still a fun little place. It is a small and cozy. The CO Natives come and go (not on a regular basis but on and off... to sort of just "check in") old clientele will confess they take for granted it will just always be around... The food is fine... It is by no means fine dining but good grub... it is pub food for goodness sake. The new owner is actually really nice... Students from Colorado Tech University and the Tech corridor used to pack the place but with the quieting down of the Tech Corridor (G o G) things are quieter... Used to get some semi-pro baseball teams who didn't want to stay near Sky Sox... they were loyal to the place actually. If you haven't been in here... you really should try it... It is one of the many lovely old bars in town... kind of like Benny's, The Dublin House, The Old Dutch Mill, Navajo Hogans, and of course The Hill Top Lounge. Each which were once upon a time "THE PLACE TO BE" and folks drove from all around town to squeeze in to these places... The old timers still pop in... curious newbies pop in and of course there are the colorful customers who give you something to look at and laugh at. Go in and say hello.... these old drinking establishments are worth visiting to ensure they don't disappear. If you don't like "old hole in the wall bars"... maybe you should stick to the national chain establishments.... Support your local small businesses and keep an open mind... they aren't FANCY in any way....

Re: “Tam O'Shanter Pub

Greatest bar/ Pub In Colorado springs! I don't know why this guy is giving such bad review for? Maybe he was to drunk to remember what happened. When I was there with some friends we were treated great and served with the best service by the owner lady Denise. I will be going back there again real soon!

Re: “Trinity Brewing

Trinity is a great place. They have high quality food and the cooks do it right. My favorite is the Griz! and if they've added the Buffalo Mac to the menu then you got to try it. The owner, whose root is in brewing, knows his craft and they make many great beers but he knows other guys brew great beer too. So he also offers the best beers from around the world for his customers to enjoy. I'm living in Germany for the next few years but look forward to returning home and sitting again at that funky counter.

Re: “Sparrow Hawk Cookware

They are the most well stocked kitchen shop in Colorado...with all those wonderful little things you never knew you needed and now can't live without.

Not to mention the owners are always there, glad to see people come in, and full of good advice cheerfully offered.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Very good pulled pork sandwich with Mom's Corn and Pea Salad (think 3 bean with lots of upgrades). They have a great selection of beers on tap as well bottled brewery beers. Service is always great and it's a good family atmosphere. Yup, there's lots of kids. They are people too & generally better behaved than any most impaired adults.

We saw "Swamp Cabbage perform all original music. They advertise themselves as Blues band but that was less than half of what they performed. Not the best band I have ever seen at Front Range, but decent musicians in the Southern Rock tradition. Their equipment was not sufficient to give them a full sound and it's a small area that you have to fill with sound. They were on their 10th show in 11 days and had to drive from Ogden Utah but hey...that's the job. Bring it or take a day off. They seemed to complete their sound check during the first set despite having set up an hour before they started. Unprofessional at the least.

For whatever reason, Front Range gets lots of touring bands, blue grass, folk & singer-songwriters. Many seem to play at the Telluride Blues and other festivals the week before or after. So you see acts for usually no cover that people just paid $60 to see.

Re: “Trinity Brewing

Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)

For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Kelly O'Brian's is a staple in the community... has been as long as I've lived in CS. Great lunch specials, live music, kareoke... friendly staff. Most of all, they have been consistant for years... low turn-over so you see the same smiling faces!

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

My first experience with them my breaks where squeaking on a fairly new Nissan. We took the car to the service center at my dealership; they said it would be a $450 repair. We took it to aspen and they said it was just a little dust and they cleanned them for around $30. That was a year ago and my breaks are still great. When my old Dodge broke down today I knew who to call. I'm sure they saved me thousands today. They have always been up front about what I need to do and what I "should" do and why. The technician even took me back to the shop, showed me why my car died, what needed to be done and what he was doing. Bonus I had just left the gym and stood in the sun for an hour waiting for the tow truck. I was starved and dehydrated. They have a very nice waiting room filled with free snacks and refreshments. What I was sure was gonna turn into a call to the junk yard only cost me a total of $130. Big shout out and THANK YOU to the Aspen Auto team!

Re: “Thunder & Buttons

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Movement Arts Community Studio

Beautiful space for a venue, floor to ceiling glass that looks out over Cheyenne Mountain and the city lights. Wooden floors and great sound combined for a nice ambiance and did I mention that the folks who attended were absolutely spectacular. Diversity reigned and whether the poet was young, old, novice or expert, each was lovingly held, encouraged and supported in a way that was so amazing and felt so good, that I wanted channel this to our leaders as a model of co-existing and thriving!
