Re: “Stir

Cool, hip coffee shop that's a wonderful alternative to you know who.

Coffee is great. My pecan pie was right out of the oven, warm, sweet and gooey.

Order at counter, take your selection to a table. Outside seating too. Not pricey.

Yard sale coffee cups and flatware, funky old metal lawn chairs from the 1940s, in a renovated gas station ... recycling and re-purposing at its best.

Girl at the counter was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Free Wi-Fi and parking.

In the Old North End Neighborhood (ONEN), in the BON Shopping Center, at corner of Jackson and Wahsatch, a few blocks from Penrose Hospital just off N. Nevada Ave.

Closes at 3PM most days. I'll be going back.

Re: “Is burlesque sex work?

Burlesque is a form of entertainment, an art from like dancing. It is not sex work. I've enjoyed the shows put on the local troupe called Peaks and Pasties with gorgeous costumes and tastefully done. Go see for yourself at this link: http://www.peaksandpasties.com

Re: “On Trumpcare, activists couldn't sway Rep. Lamborn. But what about Sen. Gardner?

I switched my party affiliation to GOP so I could vote in the only primary that matters here, and always voted for a real man and not the sniveling little coward Lamborn.

Re: “St. Francis Hospital assigned higher value

To build a new structure of that size would take at least $100M and we only value it at $2M for tax purposes. Just another insider deal and scam. On the other hand maybe Norwood will turn it into a homeless center, or rehab for all the addicts. Wake me up, I'm dreaming.

Re: “Reader: Suthers' quote is a staggering piece of irony

Get rid of the "strong mayor" scheme. If we don't get rid of the 'strong mayor' then the in-crowd only needs to buy one politician to get what they want.

Re: “Coal rolling ban passes legislature

Good. Ban this stupidity. Why do these big strong he-man types in their huge Tonka trucks fear the Prius? Do they have small hands? Small minds? Both? I'm sure they own a lot of guns too. Why are they so afraid? Of who? Of what?

Re: “Lathen resigns from Colorado Springs Forward

How fitting for a political scammer like her to join the biggest scam of all -- religion. It's way past time to tax the church.

Re: “St. Francis Medical Center set to expand

IIRC there are NO burn units in this city, they airlift you to Denver. When will we get one.
