Re: “Kinfolks

A fun, mellow, locals-driven venue ... come early if you want to sit. Local brews and wine come out about even with this crowd. As an out-of-towner I felt very welcome -- music (Tenderfoot Bluegrass) was local and a fun band -- not as much old-time as I like, but still a nice night out --- town is cute but a bit of a sideshow. After two weeks on N. Academy Drive inally found a place where CO Springs "lets it's hair down".

Re: “Motif Jazz Cafe

This brand new venue has huge potential! We LOVED the food - it is exceptional....the bernaise sauce on the Steak Tapas was among the best I've had. The salmon is a generous portion perfectly cooked in a ponzo sauce over spinach. We also tried the special which was a perfectly cooked Halibut. It is sooo rare to find a restaurant that understands how to prepare fresh fish in Colorado. While this is clearly not "fast food", but rather "made to order real food", we find the service warm and friendly and the atmosphere and music make for a pleasant wait. The perfect dry martini didn't hurt either. The Creme de Brulee was also the best I've and creamy, yet light with a hint of cardemom and ginger! They also cater to the "Gluten Free" diners.... We hope they are so busy that they will expand service to weekdays or lunch as well.

Re: “Bryan & Scott Jewelers

Bryan and Scott Jewelers is by far the best jewelry and fine antique store in Colorado Springs. No othere store in the city can compare. By going to Bryan and Scott, one can see items of exquisite beauty that can usually be found only in large cosmopolitan cities in this country and in Europe. It is truly a connoiseure's treasure.

One of the best bands around! Jake has his own style, plays great music and puts on one hell of a show. Go Jake!

Re: “Music Street Tavern

The service and the music is great. The pool table is a great addition along with the beer pong table. But check out the bartender/owner Mike. Talk about hot! Look out girls here he comes!

Re: “Nosh

Nosh's lunch menu was updated since the last time I had visited and it took me twice as long to order as I wanted to try EVERYTHING. I settled on a cup of squash and apple soup (although their new option for a soup trio was tempting) and their Brussel Sprouts with polenta, candied lemon zest, manchego and a Korean sauce/condiment called Kochujang. I was not disappointed. The soup, especially, was divine... the brussel sprout dish a nice mix of sweet and savory and good textures. Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert so no report there.

On my 'to try next' list: the roasted cauliflower plate with garlic, miso and caramelized onion and the chicken pistou sandwich. GREAT service - especially if you get Aspen.

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

Stopped in to Oscar's for a late lunch last week and a Black and Blue Burger with home fries. It was darn near a 10! One of my favorite places to stop when Im downtown.

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

@ Ishhod -- get the real story about the "physical altercation" before repeating your slander. Granted I'm a fan of Oscar's and I've gotten the full story from Phil (the "OWNER") and I've been at the bar when the "female" in question has called well intoxicated to scream at the employees. Get some facts behind that story. Oscar's rocks -- go for the killer burger!

Re: “Cowboys

Born in Texas and love to dance to country music, if you feel the same way, this is the best place I have found. The karaoke room is awesome fun and there's just so much to do there. Owned and operated by great people, service is awesome, great place!

Re: “Crystola Roadhouse

We spent New Years weekend here and had a really great time. Best New Years eve we had in a long time with the Riders, the cowbelle guy was awesome. Then Nick Moss and finished off the weekend with Jeremy Vasquez on Sat. What a great place for music.

Re: “Mile High Saloon

The Charity event that was held this last friday was unfortunately unsuccessful but only because the hip hop group that threw the event did not even bring ONE DONATION to the event!! The catered food was delicious, and was ended up being given to all the bar patrons that normally go there for them to enjoy. Though the manager was a little ticked, she had reason to be, and the only people that were treated in any manner other than professional and with the utmost best were the doosh bags that tried to throw the event without even providing anything to there charity. The bar donated al their stuff plus has started a food drive since then, and it has always been a pleasant experience. The only bad experience was this hip hop group which they fired halfway through there show because they were bothering so many customers!! Thankyou to the staff working there for noticing that everyone disliked them and providing more likeable talent. We will definatley be back, for the only bad thing that was there is now gone!! I know for a fact that the peons that posted this were just the angry gangster wanna be rappers that were angry the workers asked them to leave!!
