CenturyLink

CenturyLink is changing the way Colorado Springs watches television with the initial launch of CenturyLink Prism TV. The new television service is an alternative to cable and satellite and has the most advanced combination of television features available in Colorado and offers customers a better choice for their entertainment services.

In addition Prism TV offers HBO GO and MAX GO, find it fast navigation, last five feature and extras such as karaoke, games, local gas prices, stock prices, daily recipes and other fun applications at no additional charge.

“Many Colorado Springs residents have been asking for an alternative TV service and we're excited to announce that Prism is here,” said Penny Larson, vice president and general manager for CenturyLink in Southern and Western Colorado. “CenturyLink has made a significant investment in the area to upgrade our core fiber network, data switches and components to support Prism. Our network is stronger than it ever has been and customers will benefit by having a feature-rich alternative to cable and satellite.”

The Parked Pierogi

A new restaurant in Palmer Lake features an eclectic menu and serves up breakfast, lunch and even cocktails. The Parked Pierogi, located at 292 Colo. 105, opened their doors Oct. 27 and offers everything from huevos rancheros, French toast, gyro pitas, barbecue sandwiches, green chili, southwestern eggrolls and their specialty the pierogi sampler. They also offer ms-mosas and man-mosas.

Everything is made fresh. Although they are only open for breakfast and lunch they do have monthly dinners. The dinner for the month of March will take place March 22 and will feature Irish fare and Irish beer. There are plans to hold dinners twice monthly during the summer and the owners will also cook outside and have live music.

The restaurant seats 18 but there is a patio that seats up to 40 and will get a lot of use this summer. The Parked Pierogi is open from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. As they get busier more days will be added. Catering and private parties are also offered.
