Re: “Golf Links Sports Park

Well maintained with a supportive and helpful on site staff, clean bathrooms and nice grass. The Ramadas have electricity and the fields can be lit at night. Sometimes a few to many soccer teams, but overall an excellent and not overly used location

Re: “Sentinel Peak ("A" Mountain)

Been a while since I saw Tucson from A Mountain -- lots of memories there. Glad it's clean up and somewhat gang free... Hope it stays that way. Nice place to remind us why we live here...

Re: “Udall Park

Want a quiet place to get lost? Want to go for a walk? Run an outdoor track? Run and indoor track. Watch some GREAT inspired little leaguers have a blast? Take your dog for a (confined) run? Try great snack bar food at the SCLL Snack bar? I love this park -- it's eastside -- it clean (usually -- I pick up trash when I walk) and the people are nice. Tennis courts are nice -- basketball indoors -- lotsa desert to go pray for a while... See you there!

Re: “Tucson Botanical Gardens

It's easy to forget you're in the desert at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. Also the best place in town to get gardening ideas and inspiration. I especially dig the historic photos of the Porter family that owned the property and built many of the existing buildings in the 1920s and 1930s

Re: “Magic Tower Games

I was there the day Joe Pinkley is referring to in his post. Joe came in signed up for the tournament that was being held, asked about a card price and then sat down at a table probably to construct his deck. The owner then came up and asked if he wanted the card and did throw a fit when Joe said he wasn't going to purchase the card. (which was under $5) The owner must of had a rough day or something because I have been there multiple times and although he was never the most pleasant person he certainly was never like that.

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: “Hacienda del Sol

I was at HDS a month ago, and it was like losing an old friend. The Grill had always been one of my favorites, true unaffected Arizona style, comfortable setting, good food. A place to relax with family and friends. It has changed for the worse. Now there is an amuse bouche, how un-western can you get and little cups of chocolate. The service which used to be quiet and unassuming, now is trying to be like New York. Pretentious and overbearing. I will say the steak was perfection, so all is not lost. However, the other diners reported they were not so lucky and much of the dinner went uneaten.

Re: “Guitar Center

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.

Re: “CrossFit Works

I didn't love the atmosphere at CrossFit Works. Maybe some do, but I found the owners to be stuffy and not very helpful. Perhaps I caught them on a bad day.

Re: “Tucson Botanical Gardens

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.

Re: “Ellie Towne Flowing Wells Community Center

Dont let dr.alvarez steal money from you . Know your access rights. If you have optional access insurance a co payment is optional. This office will not tell you that ..and you may be giving dr.alvarez money you cant afford

Re: “St. Elizabeth of Hungary Clinic

Don't waste your time with this place...
Plz DONT take a chance on this clinic. They're care for they're patience are at a all time low. The doctors don't care about fixing medical problems. These doctors don't give you the time to find out what the medical problem is. This place is not handicap friendly. Its more like a joke to them. This place needs a big clean up or a training program for they're staff. No doctor there cares about fixing they're big problem. They need empathy.

Re: “Centric Photo

BEWARE....POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS , POOR QUALITY....
Centric is NOT place to go if you are looking for quality. You would be better off going to Walgreen! No Joke. They are over priced for the quality you receive.
Their proof strip does not give an adequate representation of the final print. My photo was black and white, they couldn't even get the contrast right. When I asked them to correct it. They got very defensive and Richard said I would have to pay again to have it reprinted and would only give a small discount for a corrected print. I had already paid a pretty penny (because at the time I believed that it would be worth the extra money to support a local business and get a higher quality image printed) Boy was I wrong. I came in to pick up the corrected print and it was double the price Richard had originally quoted me for the corrections. Its sad when a local business that you want to support will not work with you when you are unsatisfied and then lie about the price to squeeze an extra buck out of you... I ended up not getting my final print due to the price increase and will not be going back again. Use Photographic Works or Jones Photo Lab.. Do not trust your work with Centric.
CONSUMERS BEWARE......

Re: “Rancho Vistoso Urgent Care

BEWARE of this place. I was billed from the Oro Valley Hospital for a Rancho Vistoso Urgent Care visit. Issued a wristband and told there would be no copay, I should have known something was up.
Billed as OUTPATIENT SERVICES. Over $500 for 10 mins with a nurse. Dr. bills seperately and then you will have a FACILITY charge.

My suggestion is to go down the road to a new URGENT CARE not associated with the hospital. There is one on Oracle (near McGee) in front of Sprouts. I've compained several time to the CEOs office (Jae Dale) and have yet to even get a reply.
