You never know who is going to show up at Kips - it is more like a very avant garde movie than a normal bar and grill. But somehow everyone seems to feel at home here, whether jammed inside or more spaciously seated outside, whether there are musicians doing their magic, or just the roar of the crowd or the witty banter between staff and the "regulars". Families with kids somehow find it entertaining to share the air with bikers and cowboys, beach girls and ranchers. Do not try to impress the bartenders or table staff with either what you wear or what you say: they have seen and heard everything. As a final recommendation - if it is after 10 PM on a week night in Pagosa Springs, this is one of the few places you may be able to get something to eat - fish tacos and a large margarita, for example.
