Re: “Sanders Galleries

Sanders Galleries is home to Ka've Bowls. If you've not seen these bowls, they are unique wood turnings created by local artist Dave Dosh. The bowls are exquisite works of art, created from natural and dyed woods which are often inspired by Dave's travels around the world.

Re: “Beer Belly's Pub

The Place is great, sometimes a band called The Collectors show up and man, they really rock the place and make it a really fun time! I hope to see them there more often!

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: “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: “Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures

This is a must see for anyone who has ever daydreamed in miniature, had fantasies of what it would be like if they could fit inside a dollhouse, or marveled, "How'd they do that?" Spent a couple of hours there with a visiting friend and was absolutely fascinated by the whimsical, technical details, historical correctness, and just plain charm of the various exhibits of dolls houses, roomboxes and fantasyland miniatures. My only complaint? More seating throughout the building for my weary feet and sore joints from bending and stooping to see all there was to see! Commit yourself to multiple visits!

Re: “The Hut

I'm rarely out for night life, but if I'm shopping on 4th Ave. The Hut is the perfect place to rest my tootsies while I sip a Moose Drool, then beat my husband at pool! Just kidding, Baby...

Re: “Northshore Bar and Grill

North Shore is by far my favorite bar to go to during the week. The friendly atmosphere and always interesting locals make it a great place to relax and have a couple drinks. The food and alcohol are very fairly priced and even more so during happy hour. The only thing I do not like is on Fridays and Saturdays it turns into a hip hop bar and holds a completely different atmosphere. Over all 4 out of 5 stars! Best bar in town!

Re: “Bum Steer

It says karaoke/ Open Mic, which is true, but the Open Mic is predominantly a Stand-up Comedy Open Mic, whereas at most other bars Open Mics are mainly geared toward Live Music/ Jams, so acoustic acts are welcome, but please aim to be funny. The Karaoke after Open Mic is usually pretty awesome too, because some of the comics stick around and sing... drunk, so that's entertaining. Wednesdays are All You Can Eat Wings for $9.99, also $1 Domestic Drafts along with other great drink specials and for anyone who performs atleast 3 times in a row, you get a free burger and soda. So please come down, bring your friends, have a good times. Open Mic starts at 7:30/8:00, Karaoke starts about 9:30/10:00

Re: “Kingfisher Bar and Grill

Love it! My wife and I have eaten there on many occasions and, yes, we're among those people who make special requests. She likes to have the sauces on the side so she can add just the right amount to her fish; I like my lobster shelled. Prior to going to Kingfisher, my wife said she didn't like seafood. Now we eat at Kingfisher and Bluefin more often than other restaurants (and we eat out a lot!). We've known many of the wait staff for years and they know our routine. Tim does great work up front and Jeff and Murph do frequent checks with the diners to make sure the food is tasty and prepared as they like.

Re: “Bluefin Seafood Bistro

The seafood is, of course, great. And, no matter what kind of restaurant scene one likes, they have something for everyone. Upstairs is quiet and reserved (you can take the staircase or the elevator to reach there). The patio opens into the Casas Adobes courtyard and the nearby fountain provides pleasant sounds. The bar has booth seating, table seating with 1/2 bench and 1/2 chairs, and the bar stools are the most comfortable I've sat in. Happy hour is energetic and a variety of oysters are served at all times. The wine list is ample and there's a reserve list if you want to splurge a little more.

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Went a few weeks ago to check out 80's and Gentleman and thought it was pretty damn good! The band was tight and the atmosphere was fun. There seemd to be a mixed crowd of all ages and somewhat of a small cult following with their 80's dress theme going on. The band broke out some songs I really hadn't heard in a long time and it was apparent they have it together. As a bonus, I was able to take my drink outside with me to a burn a smoke. Can't comment on the food but the drinks seemed to come without any noticeable problems so all in all, I had a fun night and will definately go again.

Re: “Meet Rack

Great burgers and wild named drinks. Juke box and pool table. Ping pong on the patio. It's home of the aunt eater and God. A Tucson classic.
