The Bench is the newest restrauant from the people who brought you Odyssey Gastropub, and like Odyssey it far from disappoints. Dare I say they really knocked it out of the park with this latest culinary gem. Great food pricing, yet items like the boneless chiclen wings are actually made in house versus a frozen pre-breaded product from a vendor. Simple touches like that are what really stand out at the newest addition to the downtown restaurant scene! The restaurant is owned by young professions who have spent their lives in the service industry, and the little touches in the place show it. Bonus: they have a set of the seats from the old Mile High Stadium.
The Children’s Literacy Center, a not-for-profit organization founded and headquartered in Colorado Springs, began as a Junior League project in 1991. It has since evolved into a state-wide effort that receives support from a broad base of individual donors, businesses, corporations, schools, and foundations. Beginning with one location and 62 children in 1993, there are presently 13 sites statewide serving more than 600 students annually.
