A great place to shop for delicious and affordable wine. Yvonne and her staff search the marketplace for those rare and up-and-coming wines to stock in the store and keep things fresh and interesting. Cata Vinos is out in front of the pack while the big box stores still lag behind the Tucson wine scene. Plus the wines are less than $15.
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.
This is a great place to wine-taste with friends as well as find wonderful wines at affordable prices. Yvonne and her staff are helpful and friendly. There's a large variety of wines, something for everybody's taste and pocketbook. The weekly wine-tastings are a great way to introduce yourself to the shop as well as meet your friends for a little socializing. For $10 you get 6 generous pours and, if you buy a bottle, the tasting is only $8. This is one terrific wine shop!
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!
This is one of those fabulous hidden gems of Tucson; tucked away on a corner just one block south of River on the southwest corner, CataVinos is owned by Yvonne Foucher....she creates a wonderfully intimate, warm, and fun environment, with great art shows changing about every 6 weeks, lots of good value wines, and knows her stuff. Whether you go for a wine tasting, or just drop in to buy a bottle or two, you will get excellent value for your money, and a terrific experience. Yvonne, and her staff, are more than willing to help, assist, guide you in making good decisions, and opening you to try new wines.
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.
Lets Dance club events here are well attended with nicely dressed folks, a good instructor for the first hour and different musical groups providing live music.

Entrance in back of building where there is plenty of Free parking.

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!
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.
I tryed to use an outside granite place to have a marker made ( which is our right) and they were not at all helpful. They did everything to make my life a living hell. Do not use this cemetery unless you want to be alive and go to hell with how they treat you.
This is a great program!
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!
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.
Why pay less when you can pay a lot more? If it weren't for the unique selections this place wouldn't last, even in the snobby part of Tucson. Anyhow, the floral manager, forgot her name, was rude. She may be gone as that was two years ago when I dealt with her.
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!
I give this chain music store 3 stars out of 5 based on selection alone. GC has tried to adopt a retail-like store mentality lately. They are attempting to due away with bargaining which helped to make them a viable choice for the savvy musician. Now they attempt to lock prices on you and try to sell you items at around 20% off retail. By the way, a top Gibson electric is marked up no less than 60%. Hear that? 60 plus percent! Boss effects? Huge markups folks. So what is a good deal on say a Les Paul or an American made Strat? Not 20-25% off! Shoot for close to 40% or walk. CG can more than afford to make such deals when they want because, for one, they buy in huge volume. Moreover, they make their poor sales people work five to six 10 hour days work for peanuts.
Bid deal. The TBG is a great disappointment to me. The one thing we have a lot of in Tucson is dessert and this little patch of botanical garden isn't much. The desert gardens in places as different as Phoenix and Monaco are much more interesting and provide better sights. The book store is miniscule and the members don't get a discount on books.
What a Great Store! It is A Mystery Bookstore with Every Kind of Mystery You Would Ever Need. And if They Dont Have it, They Will Get It... Even Non-Mystery! Thumbs Up To Clues Unlimited!!!
Excellent class! Outstanding instruction! Call CrossFit Works to reserve your spot since class size is limited: 623-6200. June 6th is actually a 3 hour workshop from 10:45am-1:45pm, cost $50.
These guys are the best old time jazz band we have heard in a long time. What fun!!
