CCP wasn't anywhere near capacity, BTW.
Kanye West is truly a douche bag of the first magnitude. Amazing that anyone really considers this man a talented artist...
I checked out WOB last night with a couple of friends who were aware of the facebook/yelp exchange. We had a great experience. I usually can't stand TV filled sports bars (I don't like watching or listening to sports) but last night they had all the tv's muted and there was a really talented musician playing all kinds of good cover songs. Also there was an employee either on break or who had just finished his shift when we walked in and he was really helpful with suggestions when we told him what styles of beer we liked. They have petrus aged sour pale ale and Mead on tap! Mead on tap in Tucson! I couldn't believe it! I don't even think you can get a glass of mead from a bottle in any restaurant/bar in Tucson, much less on Tap! We had a few beers and sat outside for a couple hours and the employees were really attentive and super friendly. Which was really refreshing given the tendency for a certain hipster pretentiousness that is very detectable in a lot of the newer downtown businesses and is a reason I avoid some places downtown. The whole initial yelp/facebook flap is unfortunate but I don't think it's going to have a very big impact on this business in the long run. They have a great location, an amazing product selection-probably the best in Tucson, and the place seemed to be managed really well on the thursday night I was there, so I for one am glad to have yet another great place to enjoy in Tucson.
Embarrassing. The AIA is a laughingstock.
Mark S -- like most of the cowardly dems I've run into here in Baja Arizona, I believe you've got it backwards...
I think the filibuster should be eliminated on ALL legislation in the Senate...
The main result, the increasingly Democratic base will be even more motivated to Get Out and Vote -- 'cause the alternative with a bat-crap crazy republican Congress is unthinkable... The Dems won't have the filibuster to fall back on in extremis and will have to influence policy the old-fashioned way -- vote in better legislators...
and WTF have dems been able to pass (other than a REPUBLICAN 'health care' bill, more money for war and the sequester) thanks to the filibuster's massive overuse by the obstructionist republicans...?
Don't worry bslap, as the water runs out here in the Southwest (thanks to global warming) and Tucson empties (the most affluent bugging out first)...
there will be PLENTY of copper in them, thar' hills -- all of those empty McMansions will be a treasure trove of metals and building materials for the 20 or 30 thousand souls that this region could possibly support without cheap petroleum...
Why are there any alcaldes for this child molester/sexual predator?
From time to time? It is more like he is an Asshat 24/7. He is just another reason to move to Costa Rica.
Man the haters come out in droves when you talk about the creepy old man who doesn't like the brown people.
Marty the pendulum will shift at some point to the right.....in fact it might already be happening based on our presidents 37% approval rating. Republicans will have the senate at some point and elephants have a long memory.
I'm not a big fan of Rosemont, but like everyone else on this board, I use copper in my daily life. If Davidson Canyon and Cienega Creek are waters of "national importance" then is there really anywhere in the United States where the EPA *would* allow a copper mine to be built? Is the plan going forward to just import all of our copper from countries with no environmental regulation?
Actually, the ecological disaster is all the people moving illegally into the country.
I doubt there are too many voters who are going to make their electoral decisions based on this issue. If Democrats are going to pay a price for this action it will only be if voters put them in the minority. Based on the actions of the Republican Party that is most likely not going to happen any time soon.
Man, Come'On...I respect you but you can't be the Water'Boy for Obama and his Obstruction of Jobs in out Great Nation . Look at all the 'Titan II Missile Sites' ... that were there... in Pima County and Pinal....what did they hurt? They protected our Country for years... I know, I worked in them...and then ' Someone decided to De-Commission them ' ...just as Obama is ' De-Commissioning our Generals. What's Up with That Mr. Grijalva?
Sheriff Joe had the balls to expose the presidents fake birth certificate. He should be awarded for this. He risked his life for his country and i'm sure it was not his first time. Show some RESPECT!
WoB needs to invest in some good PR firm. It's another Amy's Baking Company in the making. As pointed out it is not locally owned, locally managed yes. Yes, the poster worked for another bar, but he told people to go to a bar that wasn't the one he worked at. I'd like to know what happened to WoB's mantra about putting through their employees through intensive beer education, yet they hire a 20 year old that can't drink. They need to get a clue on how to make the local community like them instead of look at them as a firken joke.
How flawed is Augusta's science when it outright lies and says that its activities will not affect the water table? Every other major copper mining operation on the planet degrades its environment and yet people are expected to believe this one will be the exception? Your corporate snake oil might be sold more easily to a less-educated populace, assuming Augusta hasn't ruined their land already.
Yes, we need jobs. Yes, if it can't be grown it must be mined. But if those jobs and mines come at the cost of our land and thus our children's future, then the ultimate cost outweighs any temporary economic benefit.
I will never work for Walmart or Target. The uniforms make me look fat(ter).
This guy just creeps me out. Maybe he'll move away.
I have stopped shopping at Walmart and I stopped taken my kids to McDonald's a long time ago
