Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

Can't believe the changes, great atmosphere, drinks and food. Plenty of entertainment too. You need to come down and experience this new hotspot in Colorado Springs. Something for everyone.

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

The improvements to the building and the atmosphere since becoming Bricks has been a very welcomed change. The owner and staff are all extremely friendly and eager to make sure that your experience there is a good one. The new menu is phenomenal with my personal favorite being the Reuben Egg Rolls that you can only get at Bricks! Whether you are looking for good food, great drinks, a few games of pool, or just night life entertainment, Bricks is a great place to be.

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

Lots of improvements both inside and out. The owners and staff work very hard to keep everyone coming back again and again. If you are looking for a place that has something for everyone's taste, you need to check them out!

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

I wish I could get out more often so I could enjoy the great food and entertainment provided at Bricks Sports Bar & Grill. The new owner and staff are awsome and making improvements so folks can have a better experience while spending time there. I love to sing Karaoke and usually go on Wednesdays. Rick runs the show on Wednesday and I haven't heard a better sound system that really gives a singer more confidence because it projects the voice so well and Rick knows how to make adjustments that complement each individual singer. I encourage everyone to visit the Bar and find out what the weekly events are, I think you will be happy you did.

Re: “Mill Outlet Fabric Shop

Well it used to be a great store until prices went sky high! Then I applied for a job there and met the arrogant, male shavanist pig that interviewed me and now I have an entirely different perspective of the place. I was asked questions like "are you married" and when he noticed my zip code on the application he said, "oh you live in the ritzy Broadmoor neighborhood!" I was appalled! He told me if I were hired it was my job to make the store money, not save the customers money by teaching them how to do something or sew. I would have to ask his permission on most everything. Maybe that's why the employee moral is so low! I know I sure wouldn't want to work for the man! Everything is so much cheaper at Wal Mart or Hancock Fabrics. And the people smile and help you.

Re: “Mill Outlet Fabric Shop

I would give 5 stars except for the service is not as reliable or respectful as it could be throughout the staff. Staff is older and assumes you know what you want and where to find it. They don't take kindly to having to walk around the store themselves. I hope I'm not being fair and this was just one person among them who displayed this lackadaisical attitude to a first time customer who plans to be a repeat one if it hounds you to death. lol STILL this is a phenomenal store as far as its content. Unique and well stocked.

Re: “Swirl Wine Bar

I've made sure all my dates take me there! Why? Because Max makes me feel like a movie star. No matter how much time goes by, he always greets me by name and makes me feel special and welcome!

The rooms in this old building offer some privacy, while everyone feels free to meander about. Max the sous chef is also fun to talk to: you will find him in the back room behind the bar. That didn't sound right. It's his station.

Follow the little brick path to the door on the side of the building to find the bar and say hello to Max for me, either one.

Re: “Piramide Boutique

Love the hemp clothing, designed with comfort in mind, and perfect wear for the artist in you. Sometimes it's a bit more hectic than I like, maybe because it is tourist season then, but there is another store in Old Colorado City! That is an alternative to seasonal crowds. They have everything you could want at Pyramide! Hats, jewelry, bags, and scarves included.

Re: “5th and Main Espresso Bar

Fast FUD! Cheap Coffee (Organo Gold). No Dessert! Focaccia on pannini tasted like cardboard. You do get a bag of chips and a pickle probably from Sam's Club or Cosco. Make sure you stop in the restroom first for paper towels...napkins are like tissue paper. Overpriced! Never Again!

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Good place with usually good music. Open mic Thursdays pretty much sucks. Bartenders are friendly (Hi Jamie Hi Ashley) until 2 AM then you better go! Hey they wanna go home! The smoking area is freezing in the winter. Men's room is small and smells. Deck out back is okay. A better sound system would be nice.

Re: “Trinity Brewing

Gringo...I guess it is personal...I am a better beer drinker than anything else I do...but I always feel dissed and abused and robbed at Trinity. Never felt so taken at any place i have bought a beer in Colorado Springs...so I do take it all as you perceive.

Also...every single brew pub in the Springs makes generally better beer...so why be abused and have your evening spoiled when you can drink better beer and your patronage be appreciated somewhere else.

Re: “Trinity Brewing

I have not been there in some time but when I was I really appreciated all the Belgian ales on tap. That is very hard to find. If you appreciate Belgian ales you can do worse.

Tejon- I usually like your reviews but it seems like it's personal with you. You have too many entries on here and it's watering down your comments. Just my thoughts.

Jason is kind of a hippy dude, I met him when he was the brewmaster at Bristol's. He certainly has talent.

Just mentioned this to a friend who immediately regaled me with tales of rude treatment and whacko bad beer...the verdict is in.

Re: “Trinity Brewing

Just to make sure my review above registers...I am posting again.

Lots of people who were excited about this place when it opened no longer even consider going...I never hear someone say, Hey I was at Trinity last night. It is an closed crowd of which, unless you are a head case, you would problem not want o be a part.

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

Bricks Sports Bar & Grill is a in the old location for Studebakers. If your looking for a place to enjoy a neighborhood feel in central Colorado Springs then this is a great place to do it. They have been doing many improvements and the food is fantastic. Live music is starting every Friday on May 12th. Plenty of free parking. Pool, darts, fooseball and lots of TV's.

Re: “Ritz Grill

Went for lunch today to try the new menu. It had a lot of interesting food that all sounded sooo good. I had The Bomb sandwich. That is a perfect name it was truly the bomb, it had egg salad and pastrami. My husband had the Peking chicken and asparagus fries which were amazing. My son had fish and chips and he liked those. OH yeah started with the Man Candy, you can't go wrong with spicy/sweet bacon.

Re: “Thunder & Buttons

"nightowl" is obviously pitching a band which is probably friends with "nightowl" and using this review forum to get them on MTV?! Nah! Nobody could be that lame.

Re: “Rawkus

Very unprofessional staff. No respect for local acts, even though they "want to build the local scene." I've never actually been screamed at by a representative of a venue, and I've played about 90% of the venues in the Springs. I warn any act going in there to expect to be treated poorly, but I hope you have a better experience when/if you play. Timbo, the main sound guy is a pure gentleman, but the rest of the crew is pretty negative.

Sound isn't terrible, but the tin roof and concrete floors really color it. Lights aren't terrible either, they have moving heads, but they project a screen saver on the back of the stage that seems pretty corny. I'm sure you can request that off though. Stage is white, not a fan of that.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend anyone to play a show here. In fact, I would say try to get the show moved to the Black Sheep or Loft or somewhere else.
