Re: “Skirted Heifer owners win on Guy's Grocery Games

Skirted Heifer creates my wifes favorite burger in the Springs. Two locations will be a thrill, but as Village Seven residents, I hope we still make it downtown often.

Re: “The Creamed Corn Mother Lode

P.S. I Google earth street viewed 3rd street and it seems the only thing left of Zeke's is the building. Planning on a summer trip to Victor and Cripple Creek to maybe find and visit some folks that remember the Bar and Uncle Ohrt. Any info appreciated. Email, Gyeager56@icloud.com.

Re: “Local food and drink highlights from 2018

Hi, Tom! Thanks for your comment. Thing is, Indus opened in 2016, and we first reviewed it in January of 2017 see link below. So while we enjoy Indus, it didn't qualify as a highlight in 2018 because it didn't open this year. Still, thanks for reading and for reaching out!

Here's our first review of the spot: https://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/ind…

Re: “Phantom Canyon Brewing Company splits with longtime brewers

#boycottphantomcanyonbeer

This is gonna be a new one for me, but here goes.

Yesterday, Phantom Canyon Brewing Company, a subsidiary of AB InBev, suddenly and abruptly terminated the lead brewer (5 years employed)and head brewer (10 years). It was likely that it was done illegally or the very least done in violation of policies. The inept and heartless manager showed them the door two weeks before Christmas. The owners gave no legitimate reason, they have been accused of nothing-no safety violations, no inappropriate conduct, no violations of any kind. And for my HR nerds, no progressive discipline, no verbal or written warnings. They were replaced with relatively younger, less paid and apprentice workers, and traded veterans for rookies

Phantom owners paid a final check, balked at providing severance, cashed out hard-earned vacation and said, don't make a fuss and we will allow you to collect unemployment. The owners cleared their calendars the same day to promptly deliver those meager final checks by hand, instead of what 30 days from today would have been an big annual bonus check, which each worked every day of 2018 to earn.

I have about 300 friends in Colorado and would like to urge each of you to #boycottphantomcanyonbeer for the next 10 weeks. This is about how much a fair severance costs and a small portion of what their bonus would have been.

This particular time, from December 10 to Feb 18th will be a key season to make the extra cash that puts money directly into owner's pockets. There are the holidays and Super Bowl Sunday, not to mention seasonal events to be catered and beer to be sold and consumed across the state.

If you all just drank one less beer per week from the phantom canyon label, we could make a dent just big enough to remind them that employees are people and kicking people to the curb in such an audacious manner at such a sensitive time has economic consequences for that size of a business unit of a large conglomerate. These two were responsible for more than $10M dollars of production- made by their own hands day after day.

And besides, who wants to drink scab beer made by rookies that makes a large industry-ravaging company a few more pennies and a couple of owners more money, anyway?

Re: “Local food and drink highlights from 2018

Where I agree: Monses, the consistency of Fat SullysDBC, Pikes Peak Market (will it survive?), and Blank. Overdue to visit Piglatin, Havana Grill. Overlooked: Indus Modern Kitchen.

Re: “Phantom Canyon Brewing Company splits with longtime brewers

Noah Kaufman is a lying POS they were fired with no warning. This is extreme age discrimination. Neither had plans to "do their own thing". I know both Brewers personally and Kaufman he has never said anything positive about them he is a horrible little man.

Re: “Phantom Canyon Brewing Company splits with longtime brewers

They DID NOT quit!!!
As one of the original employees that helped open Phantom and worked there for 7 years Im disappointed in their decision to fire these folks.
If you dont want bad press dont do things like this!

Re: “Roman Villa Pizza's still popping after 59 years

I eat at Roman Villa pretty regularly, and always order a pizza. They definitely always have a generous helping of toppings, but I have never experienced any soggy crust or leftover boxes. Its definitely true that if you dont get there early then you'll have to wait for a table, and theres a reason for that; the food is awesome.

Re: “Roman Villa Pizza's still popping after 59 years

The pepproni pizza is great, but better than that is the lasagna which is hands down the best in town. I also love the house salad with the homade italian dressing and generous blue cheese crumbles!

Re: “Roman Villa Pizza's still popping after 59 years

As a vegetarian, I love Roman Villas veggie pizza. It always weighs about 10lbs because it is stacked with toppings, unlike most places that sprinkle a few olives and even fewer peppers on a cheese pizza and charge an arm and a leg for it.

Matt 2: That wouldn't surprise me. I only tried the one on this visit, so I can't say for certain.

Is there a better pizza to get here?

Re: “Maté Factor's Twelve Tribes community called out by Vice

If anyone is genuinely thinking about staying with them or anything, send me an e-mail at manfestivity@protonmail.com

I feel that there is little information about what it is actually like in their house, or what they preach. Spoiler: They are a cult, and will have no reservations about taking your stuff and leaving you destitute.

You can e-mail me anonymously if you are struggling with the decision to get involved or not, and I will tell you my own experiences as a young woman.
