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.
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.
If I had a love of my life, it would be pizza. With Duca’s Neapolitan Pizza opening a second location on the south side of town, my life is (almost) officially complete. Their crust is chewy, sauce is flavorful and the toppings are fresh. For a pizza lover like myself, the new restaurant off Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard is a dream.
I attended Radiantly Raw’s online ordering launch party in early December at Urban Steam and was impressed with the venue’s great atmosphere, enthusiastic owner and surprisingly delicious cracker crust pizza. Urban Steam is a coffee/whiskey/brunch bar and it doesn’t disappoint. It has a HUGE whiskey list and a small food menu, but the real star, according to owner and customers alike, is the coffee.
