Re: “Danny's Baboquivari Lounge

Reasonable pricing, great place to hang out, $1 off drinks with trivia answer. Friendly bartenders..But they need to upgrade on the jukebox (music) and have more variety.

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: “La Cocina Restaurant, Cantina and Coffee Bar

La Cocina has great food whether you want a nibble or a meal. La Cocina is in the courtyard of the beautiful Old Town Artisans of Presidio Barrio. La Cocina has a great assortment of live music. What else could there be?!

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

ZERO STARS!

I got 4 tickets to the Mystery Theater as a gift for my mother. This cost about $200 so I expected quite a lot. When calling into the theater to initially purchase the tickets the man who answered the phone was completely unprofessional and rude. He explained how the evening would go, how wonderful the food would be, how interactive and engaging the how would be etc. but was condescending and impatient with me. He made me feel as if I was wasting his time, but I assumed he was busy, so I went through with the transaction…

When my mother tried to schedule a time to go to the show she was treated very poorly. She called in and booked a Saturday night, but immediately remembered that she had a prior commitment, so called them back within MINUTES. The man almost REFUSED to let her change days! She wanted to change to the Friday and he said she could not and that it was too late to do so! She had literally just spoken to him. He finally agreed to allow her to change days but made her feel bad about it. I was in the room and immediately became really worried about how her evening would play out…

When I next saw my mother I asked how the evening went- she just groaned! Horrible food (NOT what was promised when I made the ticket purchase). NO interaction from the people on stage with the audience (I was told that the staff would drop of clues at the table while the dinner was being served and that the entire evening would be highly interactive). The show was tacky, boring and not funny. My mother said at the end they simply gave the audience a piece of paper and said, “Read this and write your answers down and don’t forget to give us a tip.” Wow! All 3 of her friends were completely appalled by the show and staff.

I am so disappointed that I wasted so much money on this gift and even more disappointed that my mother and her friends had an awful time. PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS! Spend your money at the Gaslight Theater instead- friendly staff and a great show, every time!

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

I had high hopes, based on advertising, but you should become Leary about the quality of the food and venue when they will not mention it anywhere on their advertisement. As soon as a purchased the tickets and they provided information on how to get there, only then did they say it was at the el parador. The food there is absolutely atrocious and the food at the theater was worse, which I didn't think was possible. If you advertise candle lit 3 course meal, I should not be looking forward to a budget banquet frozen TV dinner or taco bell for some type of improvement after the show. The acting was funny, but by no means is the show worth the horrible food (which the actors elude to also). Could not have been more disappointed.

Re: “Sky Bar

Okay- To start off I have been going to Sky Bar since it opened and until recently have always been treated to a friendly and comfortable environment.. The open dj./mic night has always been a good place for Local Artist to be herd. I have spent a lot of money in this establishment.. drinks, pizza, tips, etc.. a place to take friends.. always a good tipper. Always treated with respect. It wasn't until the night of 1-29-13 @ 6:30pm that i felt that i was unwelcome there by The Bartender Raul, and A women bartender that would not give me her name.. though she said she was the manager. . I am a regular customer, Sky bar is on my way home. The pizza, dollar coffee, and fresh ginger-ale make it the spot to stop before a long trip home after a day teaching dance classes and capoeira at Breakout studios near by. So I am there a lot.. never really say much just eat and enjoy my coffee. About a year ago, I decided it was best for me to give up drinking and although hard a first came to terms with the fact that I Am A Alcoholic. So when friends invite me out, I have a cup of coffee or a ginger-ale instead of a drink.. With signs on the door and over the bar stating that they sell dollar coffees and ginger-ale till 2am along with other non alcoholic drinks and food from Brooklyn across the way, have always thought i was as welcome as everyone drinking alcohol with me. When RAUL the bartender batted his eyes after the first time i ordered coffee and a ginger-ale I brushed it off as just a another bartender having a long night, so i tipped him more for the trouble of having to make me a drink that was harder than opening a beer. This was the first occasion that night, when i ordered a second coffee he ask if I was not sure if he could get me something else, assuming he was trying to serve me an alcoholic drink " a beer or something" I declined said I was fine with my coffee, tipped him again for his troubles, and went home after enjoying a slice. The night after my next class me and a couple friends as usual I stop in.. I order my usual drinks, a coffee and a ginger-ale, the bartender at the time a female states to me they raised the price on the ginger-ale to $2.00 from $1.25 telling me that they raised the price but the signs have not been changed. I paid it no mind and ordered a couple times and tipped but noticed an attitude from the bartender when I ordered a couple more drinks, this was on saturday 1-26-13 around 6:00pm. The next night I had classes would be Tuesday evening 1-29-13. around 7:00pm I walk into Sky bar greet friends, go across to Brooklyn's to order myself a slice and return in to get my usual drinks. Raul, the closest bartender near me saw me come in.. But instead of taking my order went to the female bartender working with him "the manager" and talked to her after looking at me. I then waited for him or her to help me at bar, for approximately 30 mins I wait.. I see friends of mine order.. get there drinks, people that walk in the bar after me get there drinks it was obvious they did not want to serve me my coffee and ginger-ale. They made eye contact several times but still no service.. when I saw that my pizza arrived from next door, I knew for sure they were purposely ignoring me. A friend of mine pointed at me to service me.. I take it they were too good of bartenders to stop what they were doing to serve me a simple cup of coffee and make me a non alcoholic drink. Too good to do there Jobs maybe? After seeing my slice of pizza arrived and that I was waiting longer than everyone else at the bar.. I decide I would have to go up in front of the register and ask them to serve me. No one asked for my help, I waited again with my wallet out in front of Raul And "The Manager". Raul acknowledged I was their but was busy doing writing something down and could not help me let alone look me directly in the eyes. "The Manager" walked up to me and gave my friend a drink in which he did not order and placed it on his tab after he left the bar and handed it to me.. I refused it and try to proceed with my order after her confusion. Being that 40 minutes had passed and my pizza was cold when she finally took my order I told her my situation and said I did not want to wait again.. Ordered seven drinks ,two ginger-ales and five coffees, when she herd my order she told me I would have to wait, helped three other patrons with there drinks then got back to me, the coffee in all three containers was out, so she smiled and apologized said I would have to wait a long time.. So I ordered five expressos instead of the coffees. By this time everyone that was with me at Sky bar noticed my treatment. After finally getting my drinks. I tipped the bar tender $11.00 for having to do something it was obvious to everyone around me that Both bartenders had a problem with. After finishing up a couple expressos and my pizza slice, I went up to the female bartender and asked for her name, she told me she did not give her name out.. So I asked her for the name of the other bartender that ignored me. She refused to tell me, Then threatened me saying that if I asked her anymore questions she would have me kicked out. So I asked her for the manager and she replied " I am the manager tonight," still refusing to give her name so I could complain about both of their service and my unequal unfair and unwarranted treatment. By two ungrateful bartenders to good to serve coffee to a regular paying customer that tips well always. You would think in the age of twitter and social media they would have the foresight to know that you can't get away with treating people unfairly so easily. You never know how the voice of one mistreated customer can have on a businesses reputation.. These things permanently reflect the business you represent. I can't really say for sure exactly why I was treated differently. But know i have never been anything but a good patron, customer to both Sky bar and Brooklyn pizza.. drinking alcohol or not. I enjoy the pizza, coffee, ginger-ale, hero's and atmosphere, so along with all the rest of my tips.. my 11.00 tip for tonight, i would like to apologize for RAUL the bartender And his female counter part "Ms. Manager" tonight. They put a bad mark on a really good place. I hope they treat every paying customer with respect.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

Rating: Zero stars

I saw it New Years at the Viscount Hotel. The acting was funny, especially the Gypsy and the girl as the police officer. Otherwise, it felt disorganized, disorderly, unprofressional and was definitely overpriced. The sound equipment was so old and dangerous looking and shut down throughout the whole of act 1, which caused a lot of jokes to be missed, as the actors occasionally go through the crowd with mikes and interacted with us. A lady fell on the stage, and the whole backdrop feel over. The show started late, and the promise of all these after show activities never occurred, such as karaoke and magic. All in all, an ok night, but definitely not worth the price or time.

Re: “International Wildlife Museum

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
