Re: “Thirty Three cocktail lounge banks on exclusivity

What a joke. Just open a decent bar and stop trying to be cute. If you get as busy as the Cruise room or Death and Co up in Denver (who regularly have a large waiting list just to sit down) then possibly consider a "membership" model. Putting the cart before the horse and trying to generate buzz with exclusivity in Colorado Springs is a recipe for failure. 15C has struggled for years and multiple owners trying this model. Good luck you will need it.

Re: “Porkman’s Pit does good meat, learns the dos and don'ts of cheese

The Pork-ito has changed from the original as described in this article. The nacho cheese was replaced with fresh shredded cheese. However customers do still request the Nacho cheese and sometimes extra. Many orders of the burrito are custom made with returns for more. The coleslaw is advertised as homemade and the potato salad has never been. Return customers still enjoy it and continue to request it

Re: “Streetcar520 forges its own path in McCabe’s shadow

McCabe's Tavern is not and was not "deceased". McCabe's was Outleased when the rent doubled.
Coffee Exchange will be next - first the property owner puts $10k into (unnecessary) renovations; next time the lease is due up they will double it. RIP Coffee Exchange.
Later; when your drink, cup of coffee, bagel or sandwich ($15 falafel burger wtf) doubles, and ... Not the city growth many would choose to see.

Re: “Oka Ramen needs polish but offers good broth and noodles

We eat out often. Are always looking for good experience. And wanting to promote effort. OKA Ramen was none of these. Both entrees... the noodles were undercooked. My wife had a pork soup and had all of two pieces of pork. Dismal. I ordered a seafood ramen entree and it was beyond dismal. Scant portion. Undercooked. And the staff could have cared less. I kept reading going back two years that the place could use some polish. Ok, this is enough time to get it right. They have not. Forget it. I was as disappointed as I have ever been in a meal, ever. I want to give good reviews. I cannot come close in this. It is a low energy, uninspired restaurant. Stay away. And, we vastly overpaid for a dismal experience.. We return to EIM Thai around the corner and have a vastly better dining experience for about 1/2 the price. The staff at EIM Thai is as attentive, focused, pleasant... the polar opposite of OKA Ramen.

Why the amplify on these two establishments? Because they could not have been more polar opposite. I never give a negative dining experience. But in this case, it was so grating... well... you get the point. It is hard to screw up noodles. They did. Along with the rest of the servings. I do not seen how they could rescue their effort hence why I offered no encouragement.
