I love Mac's in Clifton - I worked their briefly when they first opened and it's such a great restaurant for UC.
I'd heard that Mac's had opened a second location (this one) and while at home over Christmas, my husband and I stopped in with friends who live in the Fairfax neighborhood. It was a Friday night, around 11ish p.m. when we went and all 4 of us were surprised at how incredibly DEAD it was! Besides us, there were 4ish people sitting at the bar and a couple who came in after us. Strange for a Friday night, my husband and I thought!
However, our local friends assured us that on game days/nights and pretty much any other weekend, this place is hoppin'. It was likely due to it being just 2 days after Christmas that there was no one there.
Either way, great beer selection. I was able to enjoy an Omission beer (gluten removed) and some local brews (not gluten-removed, just normal beers).
Also, if their pizza is anything like Mac's Clifton, eat it. Seriously.
Unfortunately, I didn't get serious about running until after I moved away from Cincinnati but Bob Roncker's is still my favorite running store. The staff is always so friendly and helpful - they'll explain features of each shoe, watch your gait when you run and suggest the appropriate shoe and are always smiling. And my first pair of 'true' running shoes came from the Running Spot! Wish I could say more but the reviews below me can fill in the gaps.
Bottom line: if you're a runner or trying to get into running, go see Bob's people. You will not regret it.
Meh. I was super excited about this place for our New Year's Eve dinner. I love the sparkly wall out front above it and the menu looked fabulous. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed.
After making our reservation, we learned it was a fixed price menu, $60pp. The menu wasn't posted online to review but, given what we saw of the normal menu, thought we'd give it a shot.
The atmosphere was relaxed and service was excellent. And the food was good, don't get me wrong! It was tasty, well prepared and well presented. However, for $180+ (food, 2 drinks, tax and tip), my husband and I each expected the food to blow us away. The normal menu includes dishes with interesting flavor combinations (as my food enthusiast husband said, tastes I couldn't make at home) but the NYE menu included far fewer of these. We ate short rib and duck - and while both delicious, definitely not OMG$60-worthy in our opinion.
Might come back another time to give the full menu a shot - again, everything else was super! We just didn't feel it was a great value for the money ($$$) we spent.
First time to Copper was in a white out and I STILL loved it! Of course, it was on a Tuesday that I skied so there were no lift lines, tons of powder and an empty parking lot but I'm told Copper is still awesome on a busy day. :) Hope to venture back soon!
Can't be too critical - first any only place I've eaten in Davenport/Quad Cities. Our combo appetizer was delicious...but all fried food. Fried pickles, cheese, zucchini, mushrooms and jalapenos. I ordered the sippi-zippi burger which was super tasty but when I asked for my burger to be cooked 'medium', our server told me that they're all cooked 'well done because they're premade'.
But the beer was tasty (again, server couldn't tell me which beers/breweries were local to the Quad Cities/IA so that was disappointing) and we enjoyed the company. If I had more time in Davenport, I'd try another location before coming back here.
I won't pretend to know anything about musicals or Chicago. But this show was THE BOMB.
I didn't know the storyline, had never seen the movie and had no idea what to expect but knew 'everyone' loves Chicago. So I was tickled to be able to go with Yelp.
First things first, did you know the Denver Center for Performing Arts lets you buy a double cup of wine? And that you can add a lid and straw? We affectionately called this our adult sippy cup.
Back to the show - hilarious, well made and flawless. Even on opening night!
Knowing what I do now, I will definitely shell out the big bucks to see this next time it's in town! Bravo, Chicago!
I'd never heard of Dixie before this Yelp event but am SO glad I was able to attend this show! Holy cow - Dixie was a RIOT!! I wasn't sure how I'd feel about a southern-accented one-woman show but my friend and I were totally blown away.
Cheeky, sweet and full of life mottos I wished I'd written down ('shut up, eat a moon pie and get on with your damn life!' or that a 60-second Honky Tonk break can solve most problems), I can see how Dixie is the #1 seller of Tupperware. How can you not want to be part of her infectious charisma?!
Will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for Dixie shows coming through in the future. Amazing.
SO FUN! Attended last night and this is, quite possibly, the best concept since sliced bread. Each 'Project Social' night offers a multiple project options, all supplies needed and an easy-to-follow instruction sheet.
Decor is so fun. The popcorn (and HOLY AMAZING BUTTER!) is the bomb. The staff is amazing. And projects are the best!
As my friend and I made our string art maps, the sound of hammering and sanding projects by girls in trendy dresses was such an interesting and awesome juxtaposition.
Already plotting our return!
What a hidden, out-of-the-way, totally-worth-the-visit dive bar! Not for the food (standard - well, I'd argue less than standard - bar food quality) but for the quirky atmosphere and genuinely awesome server.
Stopped here after a long, 8+ hour day of navigation/orientation practice in nearby Deckers. As the snow was falling and we kept driving up this tiny, cliffy road covered in snow, I almost asked to turn around. We'd heard that on snowy days, the owner doesn't open the restaurant and after seeing what the (short but possibly treacherous) commute would be like? I wouldn't open either. So if it's snowy, call first (as noted on their website).
This place is super quirky. It use to be Sphinx Park Mercantile 'back in the day'; now, it's the Buck Snort Saloon that serves beer and wine only (no liquor) and mediocre food. The place is adorned with dollar bills from previous patrons and I found it really fun to look at the notes from years past. If I'd had my permanent markers with me, I totally would have made a dollar to hang.
It also should be noted that the server/older lady who took care of us was a delight. I'm not sure how much business this place sees normally but on a Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m., our group of 40 (in total, 4 groups of 10 over the course of 1.5 hours) didn't even throw her for a loop. She was so happy to take our orders, offer us food and take care of us. Truly, she made our experience wonderful.
Would I come back for the food? No. After 9 miles of hiking, the burger I ate was good - but I know that if I wasn't ravenously hungry, I'd be disappointed. They were also out of 4 different sandwiches, potato salad and baked beans. So we could only choose from potato chips or baked potato. I get it - they're a pretty remote location so probably hard to get items refilled - but still a bit disappointing.
But - would I come back for a beer and the atmosphere?! ABSOLUTELY! Will definitely be back after a hike in Deckers, Staunton State Park or Buffalo Creek.
I haven't been to any of the other Sam's #3 locations and this location was was recently renovated. The restaurant was on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and wins 'best of' awards locally.
I probably should have ordered an award winning item but was really in the mood for burger and fries. It was okay. Nothing to write home about. My husband felt the same way about his gyro. Good but nothing special. The rest of the menu was typical diner fare.
I did order a 'handheld' breakfast burrito to go (to reheat for breakfast the next morning) and for $3.50, I got a BIG handheld burrito. I can't even imagine what the 'grande breakfast burrito' on the menu looks like. The handheld burrito - even reheated - was pretty good. Would definitely stop before work and give a fresh one a try but generally, I think I liked it.
I wanted this place to really knock my socks off but I left feeling very, 'meh', about it. Probably won't make a special effort to return for dinner but wouldn't say no if someone asked.
Such a fun event!
I've been to similar painting classes before so I knew what to expect from the evening - while similar, Pinot's Palette offers a cute location in the Highlands with a nice variety of drinks. I was surprised and delighted to learn they serve wine on tap! How neat!
Our instructor was awesome - gave us enough time to finish each step, played fun music and provided enough instruction that anyone could finish the painting she was teaching.
The nachos were tasty and my guest and I loved the Happy Cakes cupcakes! So good!
Will definitely be returning to Pinot's Palette - they offer a 'pet painting' night! I'll be back for that , for sure!
I love the Garner Galleria Theater - it's small, intimate and the folks pick great shows to run.
I'd had my eye on You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up when I saw it on the schedule after attending a show earlier this summer. A comedy about marriage? I'm interested! As a newly married (2 years) gal, I can better relate to the 'marriage humor' things these days.
Unfortunately, this one didn't strike a real chord with me. The show follows a couple as they relive and remember different moments in their 10-year-old marriage. It was light-hearted, entertaining and the actors were fabulous - but the content didn't really hit home for me. Maybe because I'm still in my mid-twenties? Maybe because I haven't been married for 10 years? Maybe because my husband and I don't mirror the (relative) extremes of the character's personalities (one = stoic, less romantic; other = overly romantic and wistful)? Not exactly sure what the reason was.
The rest of the audience was howling with laughter throughout the show so - it's definitely relatable to others!
Well holy moley! These burgers are ENORMOUS! And delicious!!
I enjoyed the burger that Guy Fieri (or whatever his name is) ate on Diners Drive ins and Dives (so says the server) with Halloumi cheese and Burgundy Wine with Mushrooms and Truffles. It was the bomb.
It's a small, neon-ly lit restaurant so if you're going on a weekend, sounds like you should prepare to wait (per our local friends). It's a very casual place, neat atmosphere and decent food. Enjoy!
This place is really a treat to stumble upon on Colfax! Jim, the owner, makes all of the ice cream in the store, by himself. He's also the only person who works there - and he's a friendly, interesting dude! His flavors are a bit wacky and pair nicely with his donut neighbors, VooDoo, but every flavor we tried was amazing.
Will definitely be back to support Jim and Ice Cream Riot many times this summer!
Dropped my car off in the morning, picked it up around 3 p.m. and couldn't believe my eyes. It looked better than when I bought the car!
Interior detailing for my 2010 Subaru Outback was $115 - the whole interrior was scrubbed, vaccumed and wiped down. It also includes an exterior wash and rub down.
I'll definitely be back to this location in the future. My one 'would be nice to have' comment is that I'd love if there were a shuttle option. Because the detailing takes a significant amount of time, I'd love to be able to drop my car off and catch a ride to work (~1 mile away).
Was here for brunch with 6 other friends recently and we could not have been more pleased with our experience here. The cute little coffee cups, the friendly service, the delicious brunch food - all exceptional! Sweet Sunday was a really satisfying brunch option (misnomer - it's not a sweet meal!). We also shared an order of the french toast as a table and DANG. If I liked french toast, I'd definitely order that again. And coming from a non-french-toast liker, I LOVED it.
Also, anywhere that serves grapefruit mimosas has my heart.
In short, git yerself to Duo for brunch.
This was such a fun idea! My friend and I had great time learning about diamonds from the very knowledgable Shane Co staff while mingling with fellow Yelpers and trying on beautifully sparkly jewelry! And the cut out of Tom Shane was the bomb. So fun!
I know next to nothing when it comes to diamonds so learning about how cut, clarity, color and carat are measured/determined was really interesting to me! The staff happily answered all of my pesky questions - even though I'm sure they'd answered the same questions just minutes before. And while they were't selling to us, they did share with us about Shane Company's values - many of which I didn't know. It was really cool, also, to learn that they offer free cleaning to all jewelry purchased with them.
As always, the food (pizza and cupcakes) and drink (wine!) were a welcome addition - who doesn't love a little vino while wearing a $40,000 sapphire ring?
Loved the atmosphere of this place and the service was impeccable.
My husband and I shared the calamari for an appetizer and shared a risotto dish with fig and prosciutto and a dish with noodles and meat sauce (because the menu changes daily, the names are not listed online). Both were good - we like the risotto better - but both felt like they could have had a bit of extra spunk for the price point ($20+ each). The calamari, though, was amazing - highly, highly suggest it! The calamari was soft, not rubbery, lightly breaded and served on top of a cheesy, cold noodle serving with sliced asparagus. It was awesome.
Because the menu changes daily, we'll definitely be back to give the entrees another shot in the future. And, if nothing else, this is a great place to enjoy a romantic glass of wine on that cute little stretch of 17th St.
Beer-garitas. Giant plate of nachos. I'm not sure what else there is to say about this place!
It's on the cute little 'historic downtown Arvada' street and, while the decor isn't that interesting, the food was tasty and portions were ENORMOUS.
The most interesting and fun part about my experience at Fuzzy's was the beergarita menu. I mean, I'd seen Corona-Rita's and Dos-Arita's before but Fuzzy's takes these to a whole new level. They offered like, 12 different beer/margarita mixed drinks. I opted for the Shocker (peach marg with Shock Top) and my friend ordered a crazy one with a strawberry marg + Guinness.
I don't often find myself in Arvada but next time I am, would definitely consider Fuzzy's for a drink stop!
LOVED this cute little place! When I knew I was coming to NYC for a weekend, my first and only request was that we stop at 'the restaurant that only serves meatballs.' This was where my friend took me and it did not disappoint! Loved the meatballs - I got sliders. You can pick the type of meat and type of sauce so the combinations are endless! Well, not really but kind of.
If you like meaty balls, this is a place for you.
HUGE fan of Skirt Sports - products are awesome, their staff is even better.
If you're looking for a fun, girly place to pick up a running skirt or dress, stop by Skirt HQ (this address) and meet the ladies behind the brand. You'll likely find Nicole DeBoom, CEO, there too - she's super friendly, way inspiring and extra supportive.
And their workout apparel is terrific - designed for women, by women so the fit is perfect and quality is great.
