Pizza is my life. No, really. I love any kind of pizza – chain, delivery, thin crust, Chicago style, it really doesn’t matter. But if I’m looking for a great authentic Italian pizza, I head to Old Colorado City for a peach bellini and slice of Margherita at Pizzeria Rustica.
The weather in Colorado Springs this fall has been exceptionally warm but the time for patio happy hours without a parka and gloves is coming to an end. It seemed to be one of the final warm days of the season, so mom and I decided to hit Crystal Park Cantina in Manitou Springs for one last outdoor drink.
I went to the Colorado Springs Young Professionals meetup at The Principal’s Office and decided to try something different. The Blackberry Smash was delicious. Made with freshly smashed blackberries, lime, bourbon, mint and something sparkling to give it some bubbles, for something sweeter than I’d normally get, I’d order it again.
When the Colorado Springs Pure Barre team spent a few days training in Denver, we had lots of time to try new restaurants and delis. Lucky for us, we got some great recommendations on places to eat over the weekend. Masterpiece Delicatessen is one of the awesome restaurants in the Highlands area of Denver.
The margaritas at Sonterra Grill’s happy hour are some of the best in Colorado Springs. Sonterra doesn’t just have great drinks, but the discounted food and tapas offered during their happy hour really make it worth the sit at the bar. Plus, their happy hour goes later than most other restaurants in the Springs.
