We're just about half way done with the second round of Best of Tucson
voting. While (technically) every category is still anybody's game (well, any of the finalists), some races really are incredibly close.
These are the most competitive categories in each section:
Best Art Classes
Interestingly, this category was pretty quiet in Round 1. Now that the finals have hit the ASDM Art Institute, Creative Juice Art Bar, the Drawing Studio, Pima Community College and Sonoran Glass School are all pulling in a ton of votes. Each contender is pretty different, but it's up to you to pick the best place to pursue an artistic education.
Tucson is a city of beautiful places, and our local hotels make sure visitors realize that. The Arizona Inn, Downtown Clifton, Hacienda Del Sol, Hotel Congress and Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa are our finalists in this category. Where do you tell your visitors they should stay?
Best Games Store
I've said it before: It seems like Tucson has an abundance of board game stores. Whether you're an Agricola
superstar or the person who always finishes last in Sorry!,
a good local game store is a handy resources come Hanukkah, homebody houseguests or Sunday nights at home. So, you need a board game. Where are you going to go? Amazing Discoveries, Heroes and Villains, Tucson Games and Gadgets, Isle of Games or Yikes Toys, probably.
Best Tattoo Parlor
We know Tucson loves Tattoos—that was pretty much the entire premise around last year's Best of Tucson. But getting an ugly tattoo is a lot worse than getting a bad hair cut. So, where to go? Our readers reccomend Black Rose Tattooers, Enchanted Dragon Tattoos, Haunted Hands, Sacred Art Tattoo Studio and Tattoo Artistry.
