Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan celebrates 84 years on North Nevada

The hogan building might be 84 years old.
Johnny's hasn't been in that Hogan that long. The food is standard.

Re: “Booze sponges at Mother Muff’s

All of Griffin's reviews read as if he were a teenager who refuses to let his mom's new boyfriend impress him.

Re: “Phantom Canyon menu stays true amidst staff changes

It's amazing how Phantom Canyon has managed to drive away so much of its kitchen staff over the last few years. Maybe management needs to re-evaluate how it treats people?

Re: “Soil Cycle offers composting services for downtown Springs

As a gardener and composter, I am absolutely loving this. I hope they will consider expanding this city-wide, as well as get Parks and Wildlife to support/spread the word about this service as well due to bears being the ultimate trash can pirates. The bear got into my trash cans exactly zero times last year precisely because we make a point of composting our food waste instead. This is an absolutely fantastic solution and I hope eventually the whole city will get on board. Also, Rocky Mountain Worm Company offers a fantastic deal on African nightcrawlers. They are ravenous and they turn all my kitchen scraps into magic, mythical worm-casting-compost which was brought plants back from the dead.

VERY cool, Indy. VERY cool.

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: “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:…

Re: “Phantom Canyon Brewing Company splits with longtime brewers


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.
