Seven things to know about the Broadmoor Seven Falls

Seven Falls

After being closed for almost two years, Seven Falls reopened on Thursday renamed the Broadmoor Seven Falls. With a new restaurant and almost $12 million worth of renovations, the local attraction is looking good. I got a sneak peek Wednesday during its grand reopening, and there are a few key things to know before making a trip to the beautiful Colorado Springs spot.

Give it another chance: experiencing Nosh for a second time

Every once in a while my friends find a restaurant that they enjoy and I just don’t care for it. Nosh used to be one of those places, until this past weekend. After a second night of dinner and drinks at the downtown restaurant, I’ve decided I’ll be spending many more happy hours drinking Sangria and munching on salad on their patio.

Odyssey Gastropub begins brunch service and it’s a good thing

Breakfast BLTA and Waffle Fries

I love a good brunch spot but restaurants with a delicious brunch menu as well as a decently priced bottomless mimosa are very limited in Colorado Springs. Odyssey Gastropub started its brunch service just two weeks ago and so far, they’ve done well. It’s a great menu with decent prices and the mimosas are good, but the food is where Odyssey’s creativity shines.

Shaes brings late night eats and drinks to OCC

Shaes beers

Shaes is a new hole-in-the-wall bar in Old Colorado City serving up beer in mason jars and cheap pizzas that will satisfy your late night hunger. With a menu offering pizzas and sandwiches, a liquor shelf filled with everything you can think of and an incredibly welcoming and genuine staff, this place should quickly become a Westside favorite.

Brunch at Capitol Hill Mansion was fit for first class

Denver Style Magazine hosted a blogger get together called Diamonds in the Daytime and the event made me feel like I was first class! We began with a brunch at Capitol Hill Mansion and finished the morning with a tour of the Molly Brown House. Not only was the food delicious and the tour educational, but the bloggers I met were great company, too!

Postino Annex made me a repeat restaurant offender!

Beer and Bruschetta

Postino Annex in Tempe, Ariz. was one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. The bruschetta was insanely good, there were $5 glasses of wine and pitchers of beer almost all day and the service was impeccable. Now here is the best part: Postino is opening a Denver location in LoHi this Spring. Be still, my beating heart.
