Re: “Irie Rasta Caribbean Bar and Grill showing a tough start in Manitou Springs

That's too bad. Try Spice Island Grill instead!

Re: “Irie Rasta Caribbean Bar and Grill showing a tough start in Manitou Springs

Thanks for the honest, fair review of this place.

I'm from Florida originally, and I've had too much authentic Caribbean cuisine in south Florida and the Keys, so I won't try places like this unless it's reported to be off the wall good. Maybe they will improve!

Sorry to hear that. I used to enjoy stopping by the Island Grill.

Re: “Red Leg Brewing Company announces new, expanded facility near Garden of the Gods

Hopefully they build the new tap room so the noise levels will not drive you out. I enjoy Red Leg's beer, but the noise level at there current location drives me to go somewhere else.

Re: “Barnwood at Great Wolf Lodge focuses on local food, for a price

This place is a huge rip off!!! First they have you sign up through your email for these special quote on quote promotions and then when they do send you the promotion as they send you promotions for a family-size that is not yours even though they ask you how many is in your family when you sign up for the promotions. So I received a promotion for 139 99 specifically for our family when I went online to book it it said it was only available for 5 people even though our family is a family of 6. So I called guest services and guest services told me that they don't have all the specials and promotions and transferred me to the reservation line where I was on hold for 45 minutes. Then when she got on the phone she told me even though I told her the suite held a family of five. She then placed me on hold for 20 minutes to talk to a supervisor just to give us one person upgrade meaning a pull out couch instead of a fold-out chair came back got on the phone and told me that that promotion was only good for 4 to 5 people and that the emails are random!!! Why have people sign up for promotional emails if you don't intend on honoring them I call that a big fraud!!! My family was really looking forward to going to the Great Wolf Lodge but we will not be going because when I tried to get the room at the 139.99 that they offered me she said it wasn't available for our family size even though the promotional email was for our family and then they tried to offer me a price of $398. Can you believe that!!! And on top of that there's no hot tub there what a waste!!! There is definitely many better places to go then somewhere that doesn't even honor their promotions!!!

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

So this article just repeated the Vices comments without actually taking the spokesperson up on his offer to answer any questions? Great journalism

Re: “The Bench brings sports bar fare to the New South End

ecoolEye09. If The Bench has found a way to keep the hipsters away, then I may have found a new watering hole. Just because the staff and patrons are sporting lumberjack beards, man-buns and feel most comfortable in their girlfriends jeans doesn't make a place either hipper or better; it does make it unoriginal, clich and just plain boring though. Let me guess: the T.V.s interfere with your ability to be heard when talking about how #woke you are and what you're vaping on?

I love Odyssey Gastropub. I work near downtown and I will definitely be trying out the Bench very soon.

Re: “NaO’s Foodbus needs tutoring but shows promise

Generally when people show up during peak business hours in this case 12pm-1pm, with an order for 19 people, it tends to take a little extra time. NaOs Food Bus is NOT fast food and that is why we have such a large following. Everything is hand crafted in house, right down to our sauces. Most other restaurants who make their own corned beef like we do charge upwards of $14, and it is not delivered to your doorstep. However I am sorry you didnt enjoy your meal, everyone else who got a Reuben that day said it was the best Reuben theyve ever had. In addition, I am licensed in El Paso county with the health department and the city to peddle food.

Re: “The Bench brings sports bar fare to the New South End

You lost me at the Coors light part. When will bars stop serving that piss? Sorry...gonna have to skip this place. And another place with TV's all over (well...I guess it is a sports bar). We live just off downtown and frequent the hipper/better places (503, cerberus, Pig Latin) and the one thing those dont have (or have few of) is TV's. Turn off the TV's folks....a place is so much better when there are no TV's and people are talking with each other. Make the vibe good and no TV's are needed. (which reminds me we tried the Colorado Craft Social and it was not good...but they spent lots of money on the large tv's in the bar). Who wants to spend 15-25 bucks on a dish and have a TV with 12 sports around them? yuck....
