Re: “Rural Metro Fire Department Station No. 71

The guys and gals at Station 71 are top-notch and hardworking. It's postively astounding how hard they work and how committed they remain with very little thanks.

Keep up the good work!!!

Re: “Allegro

My wife and I ate our weight in gelato when we walked our way through Italy. This is the real stuff, held at the right temperature (a critical element in selling gelato) and the flavor profiles are spot on.

Re: “AJ's Fine Foods

Hmmm. Could have been a wonderful experience but too much crammed into too little space. A little too aggressive selling wine and the aisles are a bit narrow. Variety is okay but not everything is of the best quality, i mean c’m if you’re gonna sell truffle oil couldn’t you have chosen a good one?
Meat department shines but all their pork has been brines but if you like spending money on salt water, go for it. BUT, too much of the meat is dry packed disallowing any real butchering or options with regard to fat - the main component of flavor in meat. They try but they just don’t have the goods. Now that there is a REAL Whole Foods in town they will need to pick up their game.
There ARE independent butchers and fishmongers in town that put this place to shame.
Their produce is well waxed and geometrically piled but has very little variety. Where exactly do I find Escarole or Rapini?
Too bad one can not award half stars because it honestly only deserves two and a half from me.

Re: “Wild Birds Unlimited

It gets all five stars because I can’t think of a competitor. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly without over-reaching. Great selection of wild bird food and garden accoutrements for the feathery folk.

Re: “Barnes and Noble

Sad what has happened here. This was an excellent book store at Christmas but since then the chairs and many of the books are gone.

Re: “Wine Depot

Hands down best wine store in Tucson. Best wine tastings, best service and best wines. A little hard to find and doesn't look like much but well worth the effort.

Re: “Spirit's Child

I can relate to the above posting! I've had issues with this woman as well and she is an owner- I dont want to say her full name, but it's very unique and begins with an A. I'd be very careful when working w her and tread lightly. I worked with her on and off w/o problem and she was quite helpful as I'd been struggle with some very serious spiritual issues. I started noticing problems during sessions when I would be sharing about my experiences and things that helped me, and she seemed more interested on touting her own abilities and her own 'huge' role in my spiritual experience. However, the last straw was when she started trying to charge me for a double session with one of her colleagues when I only had one, saying something to the effect of, 'well, your parents can afford it.' (I dont think so!) I was told my session would run b/w 1-1.5 hrs and that's what I was given. When I bucked back, insisting the extra money, I'd been guilted into paying, be refunded, and tried to straighten out the discord b/w us, she informed me that "it isnt all about you!" (um, last time I checked my paid appt session was all about me!) Then later she said her 'angels had informed her that our time working together was complete and that I should find someone closer to where I live.' This woman is the real deal and in the past did great work. However somewhere along the line her huge ego has gotten in the way, and is seriously clouding and adversely affecting the work. I also think she's way overextended working too many hours and cramming too much in which is not good for a psychic energy healer who needs to maintain healthy balance. I'm an energy healer and channeler of divine energy too, and I mean, really? Using your angelic guides as the heavy, bc I wasnt willing to pay twice for services I had once?! Thats really unethical, unprofessional and it's not the hallmark of a high quality, high integrity lightworker, channeler and energy healer. She used to do good work, but somewhere along the line something got really askew. And she does also randomly walk up to people and start telling them stuff that they may not be wanting to hear. She should respect people's boundaries and not just bombard people with that information- it's like peeping in someone's window and private space: you just dont do that! Respect their personal boundaries and ask first. After all this happened, then one of the other owners became very gruff and almost mean with me. I dont feel comfortable or welcome going to SpiritsChild anymore. I would tread very lightly when going there: what used to be a very light place, seems to have some rather dark elements now!

Re: “Spirit's Child

I had a beautiful reading with a sweet guy there. Kind of young looking but very good. After I was done a woman, i think the owner, came out and started giving me in solicited advice and telling me that she can do energy work to clear me. I did not appreciate this bombardement and was wondering why she was doing energy work and giving unsolicited advice when I was not her client. I found her to be quite brazen and would not return . Also I have found items sold here at other places much cheaper. She has a good selection of fairies but you can buy them elsewhere much cheaper .

Re: “Red Hills Visitor Center (Saguaro National Park West)

Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone takes their time explaining the details of the park. They give suggestions for walks, short or long. They remind everyone to drink a lot of water, use sunscreen often and wear a hat & sunglasses. I am handicapped and I was able to go for walks too. It is beautiful.

Re: “Sonoran Ballroom Academy

Good big floor. The instructor who the studio provided only had a few months of dance experience and it showed bad! We later overheard the studio's manager talking rudely about other students and teachers behind their back. Ultimately, we decided not to sign his contract.

Re: “Bookmans

Good used book store. Frequent events. I've seen everything from book signings to reptile displays. Free wifi. For sale are movies, CDs, decorations, video games, musical instruments, board games, puzzles, and I think they have a used book or two there also...

Re: “Magic Tower Games

Best prices for cards. Fun atmosphere. Also, one of the top rated judges presides over the events. Good people. Good times.

Re: “Tamara Spiritual Center

I came to this place of Love & Oneness almost a year ago. Since then I have met the most loving group of friends i could ever imagine. For me it`s like Heaven on Earth. We are family in a way i never could have understood before. The energy we share uplifts, heals, loves & support`s us all as we are spiritual beings. In these human bodies it`s easy to forget about our spiritual energy. Tamara brings the best of this energy out.. you can`t help but feel it when you walk into the door. It has been actively serving the Healing & Spiritual need`s of those seeking it for over 30 years now. Namaste <3Debra Butler

Re: “Wild West Hot Sauce

A truly fun experience with a very knowledgeable store keeper. Carries a variety of local and regional sauces, syrups, honeys and jellies that are not easily found elsewhere.
