a plate of tacos

Colorado Springs’ neighbor to the north is a hotbed of culinary innovation. Luckily, Denver’s ingenuity and craft has trickled down south. Indulge at Piglatin Cocina, a quaint north side spot that specializes in flavorful tacos and inventive cocktails. Tortillas are topped with options like banana-leaf tequila braised pork, spicy and sweet grilled chicken, and mojo shrooms. The drinks complement the plates exquisitely with libations including spicy and smokey margs, hibiscus and rum mixers, and their signature Piglatin Paloma. Cheers to Taco Tuesday in style at this vibrant local eatery.

Situated at the foot of the Rockies and surrounded by mountainous landscapes, Colorado Springs is a hiker’s paradise. The first trail on your agenda to tackle should be Pikes Peak. Measuring just over 14,100 feet high, this local landmark is the inspiration behind the first draft of America the Beautiful.
