Re: “Tucson Scientifically Proven More "Exciting" Than Scottsdale, Less Than Tempe & Flagstaff

Clean and rich = exciting? Scottsdale is plastic and too full of boring people checking out each other's watches to see who's getting richest.
That nauseating smell on the NW side is your excrement getting turned into recycled water to water the parks and golf courses. Has to happen somewhere. In Scottsdale they probably pay to send it to a poorer city so they don't have to smell it.
Tucson isn't the most organized or rich city, but it's more interesting than anywhere in the Valley.

Re: “This Weekend in Sonoran Strip Club News

So TD's has now spanned the border, apparently. Locations in Tucson, Phoenix, Albuquerque, and now Nogales.

Re: “Evolution of eegee's

Richard, you will be happy to know there are now two places serving Eegees drinks in Phoenix ... we don't have to drive to Casa Grande any more!!! A Blimpie sub shop on Indian Bend and the GreatSteak at Tempe Marketplace both serve the standard trio and FOM Eegees!

Re: “Reefer Research Madness

A modern example of that grand old American tradition "railroading" to get rid of someone who is liable to do a scientific study and come up with the truth. In a Gaussian distribution of people half of the distribution is below average, sadly in Arizona many of them seem to become Republican legislators.
As a veteran, I would like to see the VA do a scientific study on the high incidence of suicide among American military back from the war. Do you think that many of these people have realized and are filled with disgust at the con job that the government did to convince them that they were protecting their nation when that reality is dubious at best.
Just asking.

"Infusing funds"?? So who'd money are you going to spend.? You spend a dime of my money on bars for drunk U of A students or Birkenstock shops or more bead stores and I will be very mad.
Typical Progressive view on the economy!

Re: “When Drinking Liberally Goes Wrong: Tucson Group 86'd by The Shanty

The times they are changing. It's clear that as downtown Tucson evolves, the anchors of tradition will be challenged and challenge each other. I've heard a nasty rumor that 4Th ave will be filled with franchises if some of governing groups have their way. What about infusing funds into the anchors of this area and helping them continue to be relevant.

Thanks for responding. While I objected to the Loft being on the County Bond. I am glad that you use grants etc.

Re: “Tucson Streetcar Facebook Parody “CLITT” Page Has City Fuming

Are there Vegas odds on how long it will take before they start cutting back on the schedule due to low ridership? Or how long the city will pour money into it to save face?

Bill and the Shanty staff are terrific. I have enjoyed going there for nearly 30 years. We have been going there nearly every Friday to meet with friends and coworkers. It's the best patio in town.

Re: “Tacos by Daylight

RobG,

I was just pointed out my issue with the restaurant in the hopes if owner reads these comments he might get a website and hopefully in my case have vegan options. If the owner wants to grow his business and become known city wide, it would be good to have a website. Unless, he is happy with his local area clientele. Tucson has a lot of Mexican orientated restaurants to choose from. I just was giving some suggestions to help them compete with the rest of Tucson.

Re: “Media Watch

I surf in to a lot of local papers around the US (not foreign ones, so far) that stop me cold with $ demands. I always think that they must have a strong paying community that wants to remain exclusive to their area, or they don't just want anyone from outside reading their news. Nevertheless, none are very good. The ADS has changed so much in the last 40 years it is just strange. Corporations may legally be people, but they don't get it.

Well, well. I am not surprised to see the name Jim Hannely associated with assholish behavior. I remember his time as a board member at KXCI.
