The ultimate appetizer from @beastsandbrews. The loaded pretzel sticks, @markanthonyspretzels pretzels topped with cheese sauce and bacon and lots of yummy stuff, are the best. #coloradosprings #cos #pretzels #my_cosprings #visitcos

CO.A.T.I to Anchor Downtown Entertainment District

To drive collaboration within Colorado Springs’ first ever entertainment district with a common consumption area for adult libations, anchored by established businesses such as Pikes Peak Brewing Company, with hopes that neighboring businesses will allow guests to come and go freely on public right of ways. In addition to established vendors, the space also includes culinary incubator food pods, allowing up-and-coming restaurateurs to test new concepts and bring unique dishes to Colorado Springs. We want to disrupt the current food, beverage and entertainment scene in our city,” said Atlas Restaurant Group owner Aaron Ewton.“Not to polarize the current players, but to give them another opportunity to tear down walls, build room for experimentation and disprove preconceived notions about Colorado Springs. ” Beverage-wise, Pikes Peak Brewing Company will offer local beers, and three bars in the space will offer a mix of craft cocktails, as well as mocktails, to accommodate all customers.

Remember when I used to drink 😭 I miss you @distillery291 ! Only 40(ish) days til I pop open my bottle of “E.” Anyone else regret committing to not drinking during a pandemic? Just me? Cool. #cosprings #whiskey #291family #coloradosprings #cos #drinklocal #coloradowhiskey

Unexpected Eats at The Ute & Yeti

They’re known for having awesome food with a great selection of gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan options, along with a killer beer list. A bed of spinach, loaded with sweet potatoes, cranberries, almonds, quinoa, gorgonzola, and apples, and topped with a sweet onion vinaigrette, it was filling and SO indulgent, but still light. The Ute & Yeti was the perfect casual, healthy (or not healthy if you choose) spot for an easy meal. Whether you’re wanting to fuel up after a climb, or just pop in for a quick bite, I’d definitely fit them into my regular rotation of lunch spots.

If you weren’t sure that 2020 was the worst year ever, let me remind you that @nightingalebread still hasn’t had summer pizza yet 😫I’m cutting them all the slack because they’ve started selling @ellens_flowers and it almost makes up for it. I’m still heartbroken and waiting for some nightingale summer ‘za though. #coloradosprings #cos #visitcos #my_cosprings #pizza #carbs

Phantom Canyon Impresses with Brunch & Beers

Head Brewer Charles McManus took over the beer operations, they’ve changed their menu and hired a new chef, and overall, the staff just has a different, more positive outlook and aura around them. When I tell people about the green chile, they give me a weird look, but I highly suggest going in and smothering whatever you get with half of their vegan green chile and half of their pork green chile. Head Brewer Charles McManus (and honestly, all of their staff) Head Brewer Charles McManus took over the beer operations about a year ago, and I’m impressed. Not just because of the way Charles talks about beer and his future plans for Phantom, but because he takes the time to tell you about it whether you’re a food writer or a random beer geek.
