Re: “Whirlyball to bring recreation, craft beer to central Springs

Speak for yourself! I think it's time for LivesLocally to live elsewhere.

Matt, I'm excited for this place too and I was also at the soft opening. Super fun! And it's taking over a space that's been empty way too long. Very cool!

Re: “Whirlyball to bring recreation, craft beer to central Springs

I wish him luck, but this guy apparently didn't do much research. Nobody within 3 miles of Rustic Hills drinks craft beer and Colorado Springs is far from a bowling mecca. The only thing being rolled around here are drunks and joints.

Re: “Story Coffee barista/roaster Eliza Lovett recovering after roasting accident

It's wonderful the community rallied around this barista, and a great example of what our community can do, thanks to the Independent. But how many poor and/or minority workers in our community have had an industrial accident that we never heard about, don't have a support network like this young lady, or work in something less interesting to the Indy crowd than elite coffee, or are not in the downtown area near Indy staffers? If the answer is that they aren't interesting to Indy readers, we have a real problem.

Thank you to all the Baristas who took shifts and showed what real community taking care looks like.

Re: “Juniper Valley Ranch has a strong showing in 66th year

So what if they cannot spell "consume" or "consomme"? the writer called the area "red-dirt scrublands" when it is commonly referred to by us old-timers as the pinion-juniper country or "PJs" for short.
Highway 115 has a large population of deer and turkey so drive carefully especially at dusk. There have been an elk or two in the area as well.

Re: “Whistle Pig heads in the right direction

We went there yesterday evening - a group of us (4-5) regularly visit local brewpubs. It was my 4th trip, and I really don't think any of the brews show much improvement. Would have liked to try the new menu, but there was only one person serving, and we weren't able to get his attention to order food. Sadly, probably the last time we'll give Whistle Pig a try.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

Let the food trucks park in Acacia Park. They would help activate the park.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

Regulations. Red tape. Bureaucrats and politicians stifling food providers. Fridays - Saturdays - 12 hours. Govt busybody BS! And parking meters belong to the City - not to brick & mortar restaurants - so why do food trucks need to "partner" with them? If food trucks are successful, expect the brick & mortars to put their own food trucks out on the streets. This will be a significant way to "revitalize" downtown. Lots of people don't want to eat at sit-down restaurants. They'd rather grab a quick lunch from a food truck and eat it sitting on a bench or planter provided by the City. Take a lesson from Denver's 16th street mall - close Tejon to vehicles and parking meters and open it to the public and food trucks.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

This is awesome. I'm especially looking forward to the food trucks downtown. Austin has a busy downtown street they close down on Friday/Saturday nights and have tons of people, bars, and food trucks gathering. I could see this pushing Tejon in that direction.

Re: “Bison Brothers Food Truck makes Colorado Springs debut

Went to Great Storm Brewing last night and these guys were there. Super friendly, had a nice conversation with them. We shared spinach artichoke dip and sliders between 3 people. Demolished. Amber beer on tap was great too!

Re: “Roll Up egg rolls hit and miss

Hi, Kayla! Thanks for your readership. I'm glad you've had good experiences with this food truck I found the service here to be pleasant and helpful as well.
This review comes from our Dine & Dash section every week, we run three short reviews of old favorites or smaller new players in the Springs food scene. In the past, we've run all three as a single web feature, but with the roll-out of our new website, we've decided to give each Dine & Dash review its own space, for reader convenience. That said, each Dine & Dash review is still only around 150 words, so we have to pack a lot of information into very little space.
Hope that gives you a little more info on why it's written the way it is. Thanks again for reading the Indy!

Re: “Roll Up egg rolls hit and miss

Is that really how you end a review? Lol

MY opinion is this with out the odd quick ending.

It is delicious I have tried almost every roll they have some needing a little more seasoning etc but not too much more.
They are extremely polite, there service is fast & they even bring my food to car when done :) which is a win for me as I am 8 & half months pregnant!
There pizza rolls my daughter loves :) every time we drive by she yells rolls mommy:) lol. for two young men they are doing amazing!
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE EVEN MORE VARIETY IN THE NEXT MONTHS OR SO ON :)
