Re: “Good Company Bar and Restaurant

I used to love this bar and frequent it quite often ($$$$) but I seemed to have gotten myself banned for life (a little extreme) when I gave my honest opinion to some new patrons that one of the bartenders wasn't good at mixing drinks and they should get a beer instead. They took it as me trying to "sway" their customers to go somewhere else. Not the case..... they just need to get rid of that bartender. I'm sure her drinks would be much better if she wasn't flirting with all the men so much or showing people pictures of her kid on her phone. It blows that they wouldn't hear my side of it that girl with the blond hair cut in a bob with some sort of accent blatantly lied. So now I'm salty and now I'm going to work really hard to "sway" people from this establishment.

Re: “The Liberal Store

I like them. they do original work, 'speech'; "nothing has ever been broken as proof that anything is true", and
"plunder is groundless" yes, love the store.

Re: “Edgewood Inn

My daughter was married at the Edgewood in May and I cannot speak highly enough about the experience! The staff and accommodations were excellent. Many of our guest's made a point to tell us this was the funnest wedding they had ever attended and I think a large portion of the credit needs to go to the Edgewood owners. They were easy to work with and very helpful through the weekend. The building and setting are so beautiful you have to see it to appreciate it. I recommend them without hesitation and would use their services in the future!

Re: “Old School Tavern

I used to LOVE hanging our here. But recently, the music is HORRIBLE and the crowd is not 30 and over anymore. When you get there early, they play old school, but they play the same 20 or so songs every weekend. Then around 11:30 or midnight, the old school music goes away and the younger crowd starts to come in. WTH? Change your name if you are not going to really play old school music. I can take a flash drive out my car and plug it in to your system and speakers and have that place bumping. There are thousands of old school songs you can choose from to play. Choose more then just 20. Really, we need the old school music back and the 30 and over crowd. And P.S. Your bartender, Karen, is the bomb! :-)

Re: “Mother Muff's Kitchen & Spirits

Couldn't disagree more with the review. The critic must be some elitist arse, who'd be better off reviewing obscure restaurants with square plates or butcher's paper for a plate. Anyway, the three or four times I've eaten at Mother Muffs, the food has been great. Just what you'd expect after reading the menu. I've had BLT, fried raviolis, cheese sticks, and a burger. All were tasty. Service has been great. Prices are decent! Nice atmosphere in the front room. Olde school, pub feel!

Re: “Christal's - Austin Bluffs

I get you have to be 18 to see this stuff but i feel you should only ID if you appear under a certain age. Like 18 or 25.... i am 26 and my bf is 27 had to leave because he forgot his ID. The worker did not have to be rude . I get you are trying make sure underage does not see or enter but you do realize your huge windows displaying shit right.

Re: “West Side Bargain Mart

It's too bad this placed closed. It was like Extreme Bargains (also closed). The only discount grocery store in Springs is Cheapies on Fillmore. It's a nice upgrade. They have produce, bulk bins and a lot of private label foods. It's become our families weekly stop before going to the regular grocery store.

Re: “Extreme Bargains

Extreme Bargains is closed. Cheapies is the new discount store in Colorado Springs and it's much better.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Benny's is my favorite bar in Colorado Springs. Also, in my opinion, Ashley is the best bartender in Colorado.

My observations are based on daytime visits since I do not go to bars at night (I am 71).

Dana the owner has an exceptional operation...

Re: “American Classics Marketplace

I am a vendor at ACM with three locations throughout the store. ("Mom & Me, Vintage Linens, Lace and Antiques") ACM gives me the best opportunity to Grow my business because they help. They are interested in our success and we are more than just a number here. Are we filthy rich? No, but we sure do have a lot of fun making a decent profit, doing what we love.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

A little over a month ago, one of the bartenders named Chris Anerdon assaulted me and attempted to kill me.
He fled the scene of the crime before the police arrived.
I have filed charges with the city, and am in the process of getting a restraining order against him, and several other employees of Bennys who participated in the assault.
Please, especially women, do not go to Bennys. More than one female friend has been Assaulted in the parking lot and the owner Dana, and the incompetent bouncer named Mike have turned a blind eye to drug dealing, violent assaults, sexual crimes, and homelessness on the property.
I have also attempted to reasonably make contact with the owner to discuss the fact that he is essentially endorsing his employees attempted murder of me(worth no provocation).
I am also in the process of going over the incompetent police office Adam Loughtons head and getting a supervisor to expand the list of charges that are to eventually be served to Chris Anderson and several other employees at this criminal blight on our community.

Re: “American Classics Marketplace

Have shopped there over 10 years and always liked finding unique things. My GO TO place!

Re: “American Classics Marketplace

American Classics Marketplace is part flea market and part museum. A fun place to browse and be reminded of the way things used to be, it also has plenty of opportunities for picking up a bargain-priced item to complete your home's decor. Turnover is quick though, so you'll need to make up your mind on most things right away.

My only complaint? It's a very large and maze-like facility - thus you'll never remember where you saw something unless you take notes.
