I was concerned when it was the Cactus moon as was the administration of the school. When we complained we were told that the bar was grandfathered in. Well now its not. And yeah I am concerned about the New West and gotham clubs were run. Sounds to me like you know the owner and have some vested interest.
The Wildcat's story is from January 10. We must be operating on different calendars.
Adam left to pursue his medical career.
Castalian Spring has been open for a while now. The Daily Wildcat covered the bar's opening over three months ago. Way to be timely.
The person applying for the liquor license has not had one in the State of Arizona for over 10 years. He was only barred for 5 so there is not one town in the whole state of Arizona that would be able to deny him a license, based on his past. Furthermore, the town of Marana has NOT denied him a license. The 'club' you are speaking of was in business for over 20 years. Were you concerned when Cactus Moon was there? Or are you just concerned because of the rumors surrounding the new applicant? A little research on your end could be helpful in this situation. Do you actually believe that a shooting is going to occur just because someone owned a nightclub where one occurred over 12 years ago?
My kids go to the St. Joseph school right next to where this club is going to be and I don't like it at all. I don't know the company going in there, but from what I've heard even Marana won't let him run a bar there. Don't we have enough shootings already???
Kathleen, there's a small article in the Arizona Daily Star about the Rio Cafe closing: http://azstarnet.com/entertainment/blogs/caliente-tuned-in/tucson-s-rio-cafe-closes/article_344526f0-63f5-11e2-bff9-001a4bcf887a.html
Any idea what happened to Rio Cafe? It looks closed and locked up...
Speaking of recent closings, Mad Mario's Italian Deli near the U of A has closed too.
Tucson is very much a restaurant town. It all depends on what you like. For those Midwesterners you might like Amelia Grey's cafe on Campbell Avenue. Pastiche, also on Campbell, seems to attract a Midwestern crowd.
For bigschick, I don't know what to say. Try eating downtown. The choices there are many and varied.
Tucson is not a restaurant town. Selection minimal and the food uninspired at most places I
have been too.
I am bummed about Ric's Cafe. We are Midwesterners, about to head to Tucson for the rest of the winter, and that was one of our favorite spots. We also liked Buddy's and the one close to us is gone too. We were thinking of buying a place this year, but are seriously re-thinking it because we are people who like to eat out and find a nice, happening Central spot for good food and maybe a late night happy hour - but Tucson has fewer and fewer options we like. Seems like you have Mexican (which is good), hamburger joints and then gourmet (as Midwesterners, we aren't into that!) and not much in-between.
We go to Sarasota in the fall, where we have tons of favorite places, but it's too expensive and crowded to buy a condo there. We love Tucson, but are really disappointed in it's restaurants.
Bring back Adam!
Amerenos was pure, unadulterated, over priced, trash on a plate. IMHO
We lost Amerenos also. Maybe an "in tune" writer would know something
We need more frozen yogurt joints in this city.
Chow a bit light this week but yes, give it a go.
Glad someone is continuing this column. Good luck and welcome!
Say it ain't so! Year 2012 has been hell for restaurant news. Several long-standing favorite places closed and now a great food writer is moving on. I'm reflecting harder on Mayan calendar wisdom.
I always enjoyed what you wrote about food in Tucson. You will be missed!
