When's the last time you got to eat in the middle of a street in the downtown part of a major city? Probably never, but it soon could happen for you in Colorado Springs!
The city is shutting down a block of South Tejon Street this weekend to launch "Dine Out Downtown." It officially starts June 26, and every Friday-Saturday through the rest of the summer will see S. Tejon Street closed between Pikes Peak and Colorado avenues. A soft launch is happening this Saturday.
Restaurants involved so far, include: Colorado Craft Tejon Street Social, Jack Quinn’s Irish Pub, Jimmy John’s (downtown), Marco’s Pizza (downtown), and Red Gravy. Jax Fish House will join on the official launch weekend.
Dining will still be by reservation only, but walk-up reservations will be permitted. There will be no public seating.
