What do you get when you mix homemade Rocky Road ice cream with a waffle cone? Pure bliss! What an awesome way to wrap up the day! Josh & John’s has been the premier spot for ice cream in Colorado Springs since 1986. Try some today!
The Till Kitchen About two hours before our movie was to begin we decided to have a light dinner at The Till. Since my last visit they have completely dismantled the gift shop/store at the north end of the building, and the bee hive is no longer there. The host told us that the store would be returning sometime in March. With a seemingly ever-changing menu, we both settled on splitting a Margarita Pizza and a Caesar salad. I chased mine down with a Mint Limeade. The pizza was fresh and tasty. We were both a bit surprised to discover that the salad was laced with strips of anchovy, something we had both managed to avoid our entire lives! [Like when you and your friends ordered pizza and you always said, "Anything but anchovies!"] We walked out $40 lighter but still had plenty of room for some buttery popcorn at the theater. Mmmm!
Roadrunner Pizza has been serving northern Colorado Springs some of the finest pizza around, offering hand-tossed pizzeria-style pizza and hand-crafted pasta dinners since 1983. Today was my first experience trying them. The owners were welcoming and helpful. I selected the meat-lovers pizza and it was an excellent choice. Everything from the crust up tasted fresh and so delicious. I also tried the wings. They come in mild, medium, and hot. The medium had plenty of kick to them and were pretty tasty, even though I usually prefer my wings deep fried and crispy. I was also pleasantly surprised when I discovered a small bag of candy with my order. They do not have a place to eat inside, it's take-out and delivery only. They're open until 2:00AM Monday-Saturday and until midnight on Sunday for those late night cravings. Enjoy!

Our party of five met at The Public House at 8:30pm Friday evening. As quick as I sat down a server came by and took our drink orders, which we received promptly. They were busy, but still had a few tables available throughout the evening. The loud music made it difficult to carry a conversation, even with the persons sitting right next to you. There were some great looking plates of food passing by us all evening, but two hours later I was surprised that no one had ever came by our table to take our order or even to ask if we wanted anything more to drink, even though they appeared to be adequately staffed. I'm hoping this was just an off night for them and not the norm. Fortunately we had a good time talking amongst ourselves in spite of the noise. They did manage to remember to bring us our checks, with no apparent recollection or mention that they had missed serving our table. Perhaps next time we'll get an opportunity to try some grub.
Tonight I was in the mood for some good Italian food, and ended up stopping in at Paninos downtown. They were very busy, but there were still available seats. I made my way to an open booth and was quickly greeted by my server, Michael, who went over the menu items with me and made some excellent recommendations. I chose the Lasagna, which included a dinner salad and garlic bread. He suggested the house-made ranch dressing and it was indeed a great choice. The lasagna was piping hot and very filling. For dessert I selected the cannoli, placed in a to-go box for later. Saturday nights they have Prime Rib. Tuesday nights from 5:00pm-8:30pm they have all-you-can-eat pizza! I'm already looking forward to my next visit! Who's coming with me?
