Re: “Margarita Bay

I have been a regular patron of Margarita Bay for almost 10 years. First and foremost, this is one of the best, if not the best location in Tucson to sign karaoke. Karaoke is available every evening, and each of the KJs (there are 3 spread across each week) knows what they are doing, and is very consistent in maintaining the "rotation" of singers, including judiciously mixing in new arrivals throughout the evening. If you have come to sing, you will get your chance. Depending on the night and the number of karaoke singers before you (and note that if you are a new arrival you do get inserted to the rotation immediately after the most immediately prior arrivals have had their first opportunity) you will get to sing as soon as is possible. Bar offers a wide variety of beverage from a good mix of draft and bottled bear, to other liquors and mixed drinks to a selection of better wines by the glass or bottle. Bartenders are expert at their craft, and without exception know how to maintain a crowd. With all of the above considered, consistently my favorite feature is the the wide mix and background of the crowd. Without exception, when you walk into the "Bay" you leave the outside world behind, and are there to enjoy an evening with a great collection of friends and acquaintences who are there for the same reason you are, to have a great evening, and for many to sing a song or two. I am a great fan of the Bay and expect to be for many years to come.

Re: “Fred's Arena Bar and Steakhouse

Fred's is a long drive from Tucson, off Sierrita Mountain Rd. and not so easy to find, but worth the effort. It's nothing fancy - just an old-school steakhouse with good food and a great, out-in-the-country atmosphere. The beef is the best thing to order on the menu. Fred's has a roping arena and also stores a lot of the rolling stock used in the Rodeo Parade. We have been going to Fred's for over 30 years, even though we no longer live in Tucson. It's a taste of what Tucson was like before the population explosion.

Re: “Alfie's Pub

I miss this place, the last manager and staff that was there was awesome. I think it was a group of 3 or 4 guys that were trying to buy it from the owner, but the owner kept wasting all of the money which was a shame. I lived right near by so when it changed to basically a country bar before it shut down it was a shame...

Re: “Playground Bar and Lounge

Pretty cool place, just started going back. Not so much a party place as it is just a bar atmosphere but its fun and a nice group of people.

Re: “Vail Steak House Cafe and Diner

Great Americana food. Awesome breakfasts, burgers and dinners. Dont let the stakehouse name fool you, this is more of a diner. Great food at a reasonable price. No frills, good service. Owners George and Dina always greet you with a smile.

Re: “Whiskey Tango

Amazing place with the perfect atmosphere to just unwind. The bartenders are fast friendly and work hard to make sure you keep coming back. The regulars are friendly and seem to avoid drama at all cost.

Re: “Salty Dawg II

KJ Sean is by far one of the best KJ's I have ever met. He has the most diverse and comprehensive collection of song choices and provides a fun experience.

The Venue, Salty Dawg, while a bit congested at times, provides friendly and fast service.

TMW is a must see whether its at the Salty Dawg or a street corner!

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

No new reviews so i thought I would post one.

Friday has perennial 80's and G. Cover charge and packed. Saturday night ; no cover smaller crowd and sometimes very good bands (Giant Blue, etc). Definitely the night to go. Mixed crowd with many older people looking for hookups (well it's true). Drinks are very reasonable for Foothills, food good. Bartenders are nice and fast
