Re: “Li'l Abner's Steakhouse

Super basic menu but the food is rather good. A lot of people I know complain that Abner's is too expensive. Compared to a dive like say El Coral for example maybe it is. On the other hand the food is MUCH better here. That's my take.

Re: “November Bar and Cabaret

the bar is under new management/owner - the bar has lots to offer any who stop in! its a friendly bar. i do believe that you have to go to this bar before judging it. their are a few new girls and to make my point clear this bar has changed and for the better.... i was a patron while under the past "owners" and yes i do agree the bar went down hill and FAST! however, the new owner has made the needed change to give the public another great place to kick back with good company and have a few drinks, and maybe even a lap dance in v.i.p.

Re: “Rialto Theatre

Bad Religion brought the house down at the Rialto Theatre last night. Knowing very little of the music and history of the band did note dissuade me from attending what I consider the best Rialto performance in 2010. Not sure if that means I need to get out more often or just listen to punk rock on a regular basis. Regardless, the members of BR have been touring for more than 25 years. Their sound is tight, loud and direct. There were very few mishaps in the performance, although some songs off the new album created a lull in the crowd, creating a well deserved rest for those brave souls in the mosh pit. The crowd was raucous as ever and the band kept it's rhythmic, thumping, swirling grooves at a fist pumping rate. All while diving in and out of double bass drum kicking beats and looping punk rock riffs sprinkled with enough heavy chunks of loud guitar wailing to keep the entire audience awake for a good 2 - 3 hours after the show with the continual ringing in the ears of those Tucsonans that were brave enough to attend a Monday night punk rock show in the historic Rialto theater.

Re: “O'Malley's

80's and Gentlemen are Great! I've been watching them perform for a year, now. And, I will continue being a fan and watch them perform whenever I can. Usually, every week. You guys Rock! One of your biggest fans! Brenda

Re: “Brat's Bar & Grill

We went there last month and checked out the band, Section 8 Trio. The place was sorta laid back but the band was hot. The bartender was great, the place was clean.
I reccomend you should check it out especially if those guys are playing there!!

Re: “November Bar and Cabaret

ZERO dancers , expected music, lousy mixed drink prices, The 'owner' was outside the club....claiming 'they' sold the place a long time ago.....(meaning the asian woman I met at least 2 yrs ago) DARK dank , uninviting.....The 'owner' was NOT friendly , had to answer his cell phone, and acted very defensive when I approached the entrance to the joint. This is just days after the SHOOTING, in which two employees were shot by some freak who , yes, got away. It was a mexican male as the local news reported. This place seems rather hostile because of this.

Re: “O'Malley's

I have been listening to bands in Tucson for 35 yrs, and 80's and Gents is one of the best cover bands I have heard. Yes, they use a little canned background stuff but they have to in order to pull off some of the songs they do for a four piece. gary

Re: “The Bashful Bandit

This is great venue for bands to play. The staff is very respectful of the musicians, it's just nice to be treated like an artist instead of a human jukebox. Always a diverse crowd, great drinks, and a very fun relaxed atmosphere.

Re: “Vaudeville

The forecast for Better Days on Thursday, April 1: Temperatures in the late 70's to early 80's with a chance of the Human League.

3 DJs play nothing but vinyl, no MP3s, no CDs, no lazerdiscs - obscure underground dance classics for the whole family!

Italo, Minimal, Cold Wave, NDW, Synthpunk, Electro, Early Industrial, Darkwave, etc....

Re: “Margarita Bay

quirkfiend seems to have a problem with Margarita Bay. I myself have had to wait to sing songs (even though I am a regular), but that is because they usually have quite a crowd. The reason they have a crowd is because it is a fun place to hang out. I think it's odd that quirkfiend was on her second song (11th in line on the first song) and only half way through a soda. Sorry folks, but if you're 11th (and skipped several times), by the time you get to your second song, you've probably waited well over an hour. Long time for just half a soda....hmmm. Great place. Great people.

Re: “Vaudeville

All 3 DJs play vinyl-only obscurities from the 70's & 80's: Disco, Post-Punk, Coldwave, Synthpop, Electro, Italo, Early Industrial & Goth, 80's Detroit Techno & Chicago House. A veritable smorgasbord of synthetic weirdness to please the kiddies. Dancing is encouraged.

Re: “Famous Sam's E. Golf Links

Re: “November Bar and Cabaret

Flyznest really missed out by not being adventurous enough to go to the VIP room. That’s one of the best things about this bar. I had seen the bikini sign occasionally while driving by, but never had the time to stop in. Then one night I wanted to go out and remembered the bikini sign. I’m glad I stopped in before reading flyznest’s review. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in. It has a relaxed no pressure atmosphere. In the other clubs around town, they kick you out if you don’t buy a drink within the first few minutes. I did buy a few drinks after a while (without any pressure from within) and they were very reasonably priced. The girls are very friendly and came up to chat with me right away. In the other clubs, you could be there for over an hours without getting noticed. When asked if I wanted a dance, I thought, what the heck, give it a try. I’m glad I did. The girls dance way better than anything you’ll get at the big clubs around town. When flyznest said they were generally fairly skilled go-go dancers, he wasn’t kidding. I’ve been back several times now, and plan to go back more. I won’t waist my time at the big clubs anymore, now that I’ve found the November Cabaret. 1-13-2010
