Many business owners put everything on the line to open, and I want to share their stories: the happy, the heartbreaking, the hopeful. Over the next month, I’ll be using Springs Native to not only help you connect with local restaurants and businesses who need support, but to remind you why it is so important to have these businesses in Colorado Springs.
The Principal’s Office, located inside Ivywild School, has always had stellar bartenders and tasty cocktails, but the food menu was usually a bit hit or miss. Or at least it used to be. I stopped by for their all night Monday happy hour, and of course it turned into a happy four hours because… PO has debuted a new food menu that will make you beg for detention.
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.
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.
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.
