(COLORADO SPRINGS) — After two years of planning, six months of construction, and a postponement due to weather, AdAmAn Alley is having its grand opening on Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Neighboring restaurants are offering themed specials following the grand opening, details can be found on the Downtown Partnership’s website.
