School is in session at The Principal’s Office

Duck Bacon Wontons

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 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.

The final outdoor happy hour of the fall

Mango Missi

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.

Sonterra’s Happy Hour is always my happiest hour


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.
