Re: “Best Musical Instrument Store

'Grounded in the past'? True, if the past means the 40 yr old dust on overpriced by 3 times instruments, abysmal customer service and a generally rundown -going out of business sale- atmosphere. They are voted 'best of' because they are somehow surviving? They sure as hell aren't a real music store and haven't been for the 20 years I have lived here.
Want the real deal? Try Rainbow or Instrumental. Both modern customer oriented business'

Re: “Best Movie Theater

Why does the Loft seem to be hemorrhaging staff? How many new hires have they had in the last year or two and how many have stuck. Seems like some sort of mismanagement is going on.

Re: “Best Live Music Venue

I am a big fan of a terrific group out of Austin, TX------Hot Club of Cowtown. I THINK they have played Tucson in the past.

It's primarily a three piece "hot jazz and western swing" band: guitar, fiddle, bass-----all three unbelievably good.

I just saw their tour dates, and when I asked, via FB comment, if they would ever come to Tucson, they immediately replied they would love a gig there in January.

I figured you would be the best source to ask to spread this news and/or find them a venue.

Can you work on this? Or can you advise me what to do next? (I live primarily in New England where we discovered them at a festival. We come to Tucson for the winter.)

This is an amazing group!

Re: “Best Art Classes

I believe that The Romero House Potters has the best classes for those who wish to work in clay. Wheel work, handbuilding and sculpture are taught there year round. The. Facility is wonderful and the ambiance is friendly. Lots of free time to continue after the class. Great place!

Re: “Best Art Museum

If you collected everything in the TMA and put it in a pile it wouldn't equal the Rothko in the UAMA (and there are probably a half a dozen works there that you could substitute for the Rothko).

Re: “Best Place for a Poetry Reading

And as it says,

"Directors Kristen Nelson and T.C. Tolbert are incredibly inclusive, supporting writers of all ages and backgrounds—and they're some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet!"

Met them. Love them.

They and their compatriots have created something of a magical, yet simple setting on Fourth Ave in this funky building. It's just about the writing, the writers and the readers, and the provision of a space to enjoy being any and all of those. Go and find out...

Re: “Best Public Art

Great waste of money is what it is especially "Flying Books". Oh and what the hell does David Black's Sonora have to do with Sonora in the first place?! Chicano mural art and statues have much more meaning and craftsmanship than the crap these gringos produced. Take it down and stop wasting taxpayer money you idiots!

Re: “Best Art Classes

The Drawing Studio (TDS) is the best place to learn what you really need to pursue your own personal art interests. Fred Sanchez
