Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

My partner and I love to start our weekends off at Cata Vinos for the Thrusday or Friday night wine tasting. Yvonne (owner) always has great wines selected for the tastings and we usually pick up a bottle or six from the tasting to take home and enjoy. It's a warm, friendly place were we can get together at the end of the week and relax or meet friends and catch up over delicious, very reasonably priced wines. Even though we live in Vail, we just have to get our regular Cata Vinos fix...it's definitely worth the trip.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

I HIGHLY recommend Catavinos and its owner Yvonne Foucher. Catavinos is a nice little bodega on the East side of town. It has a wonderful variety of foreign and domestic wines and a ceiling price, in the store, of $15.99. Catavinos offers a fine atomosphere for shopping, tasting, and learning about wines. Yvonne is a VERY knowledgeable and friendly proprietor who always has a smile and a tip on the latest tasty addition to her bodega. We live more than 20 miles from Catavinos, don't get there as often as we'd like, but still stop in to stock up whenever we're in the neighborhood. Despite not seeing us as often as her regulars, Yvonne remembers us, our tastes in wine, and greets us warmly. Don't take my word for it. I urge you to try Catavinos for yourself and note why it is a delightful difference on the landscape of Tucson wine stores!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

At the top of my list for a place to get together with friends and get to meet others. The price is right at under $15 per bottle.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

I regularly get together with friends for wine tasting at Cata Vinos... Our form of happy hour. You can't beat the comfortable setting nor the prices for a great wine selection!

Re: “Lucky Strike Bowling Center

Lucky Strike gave my friends the best time of their lives! We push to go every day of Winter Break! Everyone loved it! I even won 2 stuffed animals on the crane machine.

Re: “Eckankar Center

I love this church. A place where I can get great tools for helping me with the challenges in my life and outside of the box answers for my concerns. Also I love the fact that this is about my direct link with God and the Holy Spirit, and my unique way. So wonderful!

Re: “Eckankar Center

Very friendly atmosphere where people share their Love for God. An extensive library of books to borrow. A place where people don't "push" their beliefs on others and yet are open to share their experiences.

Re: “Bon

This place is a treat to behold. Whether you bring something home or not, both of their locations are sources of inspiration, and it goes without saying that the ladies who run Bon are quite inspiring and beautiful themselves! One of my favorite places to go when I can't seem to get out of a rut. Thank you Bon!

Re: “Cat Mountain Station

Cat Mountain Station is really unusual. If you don’t live in the SW part of town you may think it is out of the way, but once you have been there you will go back again and again. One of the major draws is Coyote Pause Café, which is getting rave reviews from local papers (including The Weekly) and whose loyal following seems to be growing. At any rate, they keep getting busier every time I go there! Fortunately the highly professional staff always stays on top of things, and does it with style and a smile.

The really entertaining place to visit is Cat Mountain Emporium. This is the largest resale/consignment store in this part of town, and you literally never know what you might find there next. Among the things I have seen for sale there: an antique Grandfather clock, Native American turquoise and silver jewelry, John Wayne collectables, a brand-new cowboy hat that fit perfectly for half the price I’d have paid anywhere else, and a great selection of hand woven Mexican blankets and rugs. They carry old kitchen utensils, linens, cowboy boots, furniture, and an amazing selection of jewelry. Just walking around this store is an hour’s entertainment.

There’s also a frame shop and gallery, an art gallery, a hand-made furniture shop, a bead store, and I hear a rumor that there is soon to be a store specializing in Native American arts, crafts, and music.

This place makes a great stop to take visitors if you are headed to the Desert Museum or Old Tucson, because it’s just down the road from those places. But it really makes a destination of its own, because you could spend a whole day there and really enjoy it. They have Art and Craft Fairs during the tourist season as well, and the setting and landscaping is so beautiful that it has recently been chosen to host a wedding. The whole station is open every day but Monday; individual shop hours vary.

Re: “Mescal

It's now going on 15 years since I step foot across the Arizona New Mexico border on my way to the fabled town of ...Tombstone.

You might be wondering what the heck Tombstone has got to do with "Mescal" So if you really asked yourself that you might want to go back. Mescal is the magical place where the Cult Classic "Tombstone" was filmed.

My brother and I own the number one website (www.tombstone.org) in the world for everything TOMBSTONE ! A day doesn't go by that someone from Germany, Japan, or Cincinnati doesn't ask us where the movie was filmed. With respect and child like excitement we say MESCAL. NUFF SAID GO SEE IT !

Re: “Slide The City

Was very fun, parking, registration and organization was well done. Our particular slide had good momentum for about two thirds of the slide. Many smaller children were unable to get any speed at all and had to be pushed by parents. There should have been more advertising of the event because not only did my co-workers not hear about it, I was talking to a mother spectator that just found out about it by driving by.

Re: “Skate Country

Skate Country is a great to place to hang out with friends and family! The staff are polite and helpful, even if you have no clue what you're doing (like me).

Re: “Bookmans

Best thing about this Bookmans is the vast selection and funky staff. Plus you can go next door to get coffee, sandwiches, and/or a chocolate to die for cake. There is also wifi, so why not? Of course you're not going to get many new releases here, but you can always trade them in here. And since I'm an audiobook fan, let me put in a plug for those who have yet to try them. This is a good place to find some classics and full cast audiobooks for car and home. Once you're hooked, you'll be downloading them regularly. --J.L. TowerReview.com

Re: “Buffalo Exchange

There's a hipster feel to all of the Buffalo Exchanges, but this is my favorite location and the staff location have always been really friendly to me. Regardless, there are amazing finds here with even more incredible prices, and everything is in good shape--this is no tatty, frumpy thrift store. It's also nice to be able to make a few bucks by selling them clothes you no longer wear, though they're pretty picky about what they'll buy (which makes sense; if they bought crap they'd sell crap). It's a great place to jazz up the wardrobe without spending much.
