Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Worst food EVER!! Cole slaw was smothered in mayo only! French fries were no longer than an inch and a half----what? The end of the bag? Mashed potatoes stale and cold.
Fried fish was covered in a leathery weirdness that is indescribable. Only thing good was the beer and Cosmo but then again, it took forever to get refills. Place should have been packed given the number of TVs and that it was Final Four weekend but apparently previous guests had tasted the truly awful food and decided never to come back. Lord knows, won't be either!!!

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: “Music Box

This place is crazy fun. Im not too much of a dive bar kinda guy, but my friends convinced me to head out and it was a trip. Everyone was there from college kids, to cowboys, to gangstas to businessmen, it was awesome!

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: “Unity of Tucson

Noreen Renier visits the Tucson - Phoenix area after more than five decades of entertaining millions while tossing out literally thousands of psychic claims. But she has also collected perhaps the largest collection of critics. Indeed Ms. Renier is often cast among her paranormal colleagues as the psychic with the most skeptics. A non-profit (and commercial free) group has posted a series of questions that she has so far refused to answer. Those considering attending one of her public performances may want to take a look at some of those questions posted. See http://www.gpinquirygroup.com/gpinquirygroup/Using%20an%20alias.html

Re: “Century Gateway 12

I love this theatre. I really wasn't expecting it to be so nice. $3 movies - $!.50 on Tuesdays - friendly staff, good snacks and the place is really well maintained and clean.

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: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

This was the worst performance and dinner I have ever experienced. I planned this dinner for an anniversary gift for my wife. The hype on the website explains a nice “candle-lit dinner” and gift of $15 value.

First our arrival. This “dinner theater” is in the rear corner of the Great Wall of China restaurant, near the bathroom and kitchen door. The theater room consists of four small tables, where they seat three couples per table. The stage is nothing more than a tarp with a picture of a moon and castle on it. The show started 45 minutes late.

During the entire performance, workers from the restaurant were exiting the kitchen, and patrons from the restaurant were walking through to use the bathrooms. You see and smell the chinese food and think, “Oh, maybe the food will be good.” Don’t be fooled, you are going to get a budget salad, mediocre at best. The food is a cheap spaghetti noodle dish with white alfredo sauce on it, three steamed baby carrots, three steamed broccoli, and some type of chicken alfredo roll? My thoughts were, “I will probable spend the rest of the night with diarrhea.” To top it off, desert was a small serving of plain cheesecake, nothing more, which had probably been in the back kitchen for over a week.

The talent of a high school play is probably slightly greater than the performance at this theater. The actor who was killed in the play also played the role of the police officer who investigated his murder. The actors chuckled and commented, “What do you expect, this is a low-budget play.” Don’t get me wrong, I did chuckle a few times, but it was largely because I count not believe these people, this experience, was for real, it was really that getto. It was like watching the viral video on YouTube of the “I like turtles” kid, you just can’t believe what just happened.

Our anniversary gift was a dollar-store toy, a plastic ball and chain, gifted for me. How much more romantic can you get, right?

At the end, one actor pulled out a vote ballot from his coat. The ballots appeared to have been in the street for a week, run over and spit on. I was honestly afraid to touch them without having Lysol wipes for my hands afterward. They also give you a tip envelope stapled to a paper advertising 18 and 20 % gratuities. For our two tickets, they wanted $20 on top of the $90 dollars we paid for the show in the first place. On top of it, I had to pay the Great Wall of China restaurant for our two drinks, which also requested a gratuity.

People, if you go to this show, the only thing of actual value you will get is the story you will tell to your great grandchildren about how you and your significant other paid hundreds of dollars to see the worst show of your life in Tucson, Arizona. If that is what you’re looking for, you’ve found it!

Re: “Fuku Sushi

This place is disgusting. I see roaches came out from the kitchen. Where's the inspector?..

Re: “The Screening Room

This may be a wonderful theater when they're open, but last night some friends and I went down looking forward to the 7pm show of The Great Beauty indicated in the Weekly to find the place closed with no indication of anything anywhere except an upcoming "horrorfest." We should have been forewarned when we called ahead and got a recording that was made back in November, with not a word said about current or upcoming shows, but we figured they were just too busy to update their message. This was probably a mistake on the part of the Weekly rather than the Screening Room, but it was frustrating.

Re: “Augustus Paris Antiques

Great shop! True antiques mixed with contemporary and vintage accessories. The shop's owner does a fantastic job of selecting and designing various items that are ready to immediately incorporate in a home. This is one store we never miss visiting when we come to Tucson.

Re: “Stadium Grill

Arrogant owner and a female bartender. If you are a disabled person expect to be harassed. Unacceptable, as well as unlawful behavior.

Re: “The Hut

I rather enjoy the Hut usually. They got giant jenga, corn-hole and huge connect four, make it worth going just alone. Bar service is nice, but the way they conduct themselves when a problem arises is just embarrassing. We were there for about a hour a half playing jenga (Which is awesome because of how huge it is) celebrating a friends birthday, when some little blond girl started some ish with my friend and calling her out to fight outside. The bartender kicks all of us out, just for us being yelled at by this enraged, loud, tatooed blondie. I would understand if we boosted the fight but we sat there and separated ourselves, ended up getting kicked out for no reason and now have a negative experience for the first time there. stars are for the games and that alone.

Re: “Famous Sam's Irvington

Music was played loudly...it interfered with conversations.

I was very surprised that they allowed people to come inside and (try to) sell candy and roses! (It reminded me of being in strip club. And so did some of the food: the chicken wings.)

Re: “Basha's Coffee Shop

I give it a frank 5 Stars as deserved and I now its a bold rating but well deserved. The location is exceptionally nice both inside and out and so are the employees. Rare especially in today's super mega Supermarket atmosphere where everything is on a corporate world wide level. I still consider Basha's a mid-size community oriented market in the purest definition.
Basha's Coffee Shop earns such high marks for a number of reasons situated nicely in a very nice store is one. The freshness that exudes from the beautiful selection of fresh Vegetables to the delectable fruit all within eyesight from the coffee shop. Another nice feature is the seemingly effortless merging of both the store and the Coffee Shop to work together all for the benefit of the customer. As the store has made sufficient room for the Coffee Shop which in turn sends a clear message of Independent Social patronage without the need to affiliate with Basha's the store. I personally have held a few meetings with clients in the Coffee Shop. I have to say the Coffee Shop was very successful in maintaining a professional atmosphere.
Basha's the Supermarket does a great job of remaining detached yet 100% supportive of the Coffee House in every aspect. The amenities are sufficient with more than adequate seating, power outlets and surface space. I have used the WI-FI at the Coffee House on several occasions and I must say they do make it easy by placing the instructions clearly on the wall within the WI-Fi area. Connection is always effortless and glitch-free and only a few feet from the Starbucks counter. The speed is more than sufficient. equivalent to my own DSL based landline back at home. So if you get a chance stop by and have a cup o' joe with us over at the Basha's Coffee House N. Swan Road, Tucson.

Re: “Industria Studios

Fun n Funky location in the old multi-use industrial area of the Old Pueblo. The space itself, fantastic. Roomy, good space, great tools/resources, easy to feel confortable. Those involved on every level I have experienced are truly interested in furthering their art, your art, ART. Art For All. Art Saves Lives. Industria.

Re: “Red Garter Saloon

Word for a long long time was that this establishment catered to the lesbian scene. Is it or is it still? Doesn't matter, I'm just interested in the scene and I'm just asking and saying.....I"m sure just asking is enough to get blasted and labeled.
