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: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

No very good at all. That's what our party of five ended up saying after eating dinner here. I highly doubt any of us will come back as the food isn't happening here.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

Horrible! Maybe we were expecting to much, but it's not worth $39 a ticket, the show took close to an hour to start after it's scheduled time. The whole show was very amateurish, the "actors" served as the waiters, the food was just disgusting, I too have no idea what that white sauce was nor what the heck that bland rubbery rolls they tried to pass off as chicken. I attended the 11/13/2010 and was one of the people that walked out. Don't do it listen to the reviews, I'm not one to walk out, so I don't waste my money but it was too much to handle.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

In 10 years of living in Tucson, this is the worst idea I have ever suggested to my friends and family. No Mystery here give it up, the acting is pitiful, food beyond explanation and yes what was that white "sauce". Definately NOT for children bordered on pornograhic. No words can describe how I wanted to just get up and walk out like some of the other tables did but having paid $39.00 a person we saw it through to the end. One would think after 40 years you would just get better, not the case with this one, please fellow theater goers pass this one up......

Re: “M&L Airport Inn Bar and Grill

Good atmosphere. DJ Century spun a repertoire of music that kept the party going.
Played my requests and made it a fun time for me and my friends. Tucson's newest cutting edge Dj, check him out the boy has skills!

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

This was the biggest waste of 3 hours of my life and a total rip-off. Lame dialogue, props, talent and definitely not kid-friendly despite what the delusional owner said. The biggest MYSTERY of the night was what the heck what the white stuff that was poured all over the "chicken." Better Business Bureau, it's time to close the longest running Mystery dinner show in Arizona.......Please.

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: “El Charro Café on Oracle

Horrible horrible customer service, the food was cold when it came out and they just recently raised the price of almost everything by $1 - I would pay the price if they had half a clue how to manage and treat their customers. This is my 2nd bad exp. as I gave them a 2nd chance thinking the first time was maybe just a bad day for them. Wrong!!!! I will NEVER eat at this location again - nor will any of our friends or family.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

If there was a ZERO star that's what I would rate this place as. The owner - ROSS HORWICTZ - hung up on me when I called and was inquiring about seating arrangements and he would not honor a certificate to his own establishment! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND HARD EARNED MONEY TO GO TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!! I would reccomend finding something else to spend over a hundred dollars on! Oh, and by the way, gratuity of 18 percent is automatically tacked onto your bill!!! So you're tipping even if you are not satisfied which in my opinion makes me think that there were a lot of unhappy customers and had to start that policy!

Re: “De Anza Drive-In

Gone but not forgotten. Tucson's last surviving drive-in theater closed abruptly on October 3, 2009. The DeAnza Corporation announced it was closing only 3 days before.

It had been offered for sale every year since at least 1999 when a Denver man tried to buy it and run it as a drive-in theater.

The DeAnza folks just abandoned it and did very little maintenance and zero promotion so it had become very shabby. It still had a loyal clientele though, and depending on the movies, business could be brisk on weekends.

Vandals speeded up the demise by covering every inch of the buildings with graffiti. Plans were underway to use the property as a fundraiser for a new drive-in but in response to the neighborhood and police complaints, the development company leveled everything and fenced in the property in March 2010.

Hopefully some day soon, another will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes and Tucson can once again enjoy movies under the stars.

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

I ate at this restaurant Saturday night with my son. We ate in the bar area. It had a great atmosphere. Lot's of big screen TVs. Good selection of beers on tap.

Service was pretty good except I had to track down the server when I wanted my check (I really hate that).

We ordered some wings for an appetizer. They were pretty good by western NY state standards. I ordered an individual sized veggie pizza and my son ordered a small "Chicken Da Vinci" pizza. The pizzas both "looked nice" and had fresh ingredients.

And now for my big beef with this place,... Both pizzas were UNDER BAKED. The middles of the pizzas were lukewarm with the cheese only slightly melted. The cheese was not browned at all. The crusts were not browned at all. None of the ingredients had blended. It just tasted like the individual lukewarm ingredients. Also, the pizza crusts were prefabricated and bland

If they baked the pizzas a few extra minutes they would have a much better product. After all, the words "Gourmet Pizza" are in their name.

Would I go back? I'm on the fence. There wasn't one thing that stood out that would make me want to go back. Since I have to make a recommendation I have to say "No".

Re: “The Drawing Studio

A friendly and supportive environment where artists of all skill levels (and would-be poseurs like yours truly) get together to create art. Despite its name, the Drawing Studio supports all kinds of visual arts, from painting and sculpture to collage and encaustic print making. They have classes on all manner of topics, host regular drop-in figure drawing sessions (currently $10 for three hours), and generally promote artists and exhibits throughout the area.

The best thing about the Studio is the quality of people it's managed to attract. Talented and skilled artists bump elbows with scratchers like me, and you can learn some of the intangibles of technique and composition simply by watching how different people approach, say, the same pose in a live figure drawing.

The physical environment is challenging at time, but that's the only real downside I've found with The Drawing Studio. The figure drawing sessions (especially Sunday mornings) are so popular that you need to arrive early to get the best viewing position, and sometimes things like heat in the winter or AC in the summer aren't exactly industrial strength. But those are minor compared to the benefits.

If you want to ease into art, I can't recommend this place more highly. Low-stress classes (the kind you attend to learn things, not to get a degree or certificate), friendly staff and patrons, and regular opportunities to practice your drawing chops make this a great booster for the arts in and around Tucson.

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: “Beer Belly's Pub

Yeah, we went there a couple weeks ago and saw Section 8 Trio playing there .
We were lucky to catch the show, the band was really tight, the bartender was awsome, the place was clean,great service. We'll have to go back, hopefully the same band will be there.
