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: “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: “The Hog Pit Smokehouse Bar and Grill

Good to see the Hog Pit getting some good reviews, this place has great BBQ. I've had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, the ribs, and also the chicken. The meats are always tender and juicy, the rub they put on the slabs is great, as are the 3 homemade sauces (mild, med, hot). Sides are excellent too - slaw, cornbread, very tasty beans. Owners are very friendly, good selection of beers, plus sweet tea. Nice place, the pit master knows his stuff, check it out!

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: “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: “Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild Gallery

Wow! Can't believe I've been here this long and only just discovered this little gallery. Wonderful paintings and the prices are terriffic! You can fill a whole house with originals and not break the bank. I'm planning on going every month when the show changes.

Re: “Rita Watters Art Gallery and Crafters Gift Shop

Even though I am one of the crafters in Rita's gallery I am amazed at how professional Rita does this job. She is always pleasant even when I know she is in a lot of pain. Her artwork is stunning!! Naturally I am going to tell you that the leatherwork is some of the best you'll find because I'm Dan Cole (Valhalla Leatherwork) & I've got some of my work there. But the other crafters are absolutely some of the best also. Rita has high standards for both her work & the work that she sells for us, the crafters that use her gallery.

If you walk thru the store you will want to make sure that there is enough money in your account so that you can buy at least one of each item that the crafters make & display there. You can also make special orders with both Rita & the crafters in the shop.

If I add any more it is just going to be like patting myself on the back. Go to Trail Dust Town & go into the Rita Watters Art & Crafters Gallery & see for yourself. You'll wonder why you hadn't seen anything or heard anything about this place before. You will truly find some of the best artwork & crafted items in Southeast Arizona. They will stand up against & match any other type of work in both quality & originality. You'll be proud to own either Rita's artwork or the crafters work & will proudly display it in your home or office.

Thanks,
Dan Cole
Owner of Valhalla Leatherwork

Re: “Casa Vicente Restaurante Español

The free tango lessons at Cafe Vincente were the greatest one on one dancing instructions I have ever witnessed. Superb is the only word we can use to describe the combined experience of authentic Tango Argentina lessons taught by Ms. Forde, her attention to individual requests and her professional style. Along with the great food and beverages our evening was nothing short of magnificent.
