Waiting in line to see John Densmore (The Doors) at Zia Records gave me a Best of Tucson moment. The crowd was a Tucson mix of young, older and unique...all interesting. There with my 16 year old daughter and 20 year old son, we met a woman who's most memorable quote was, "How do you make music without heroine?" She was with Cheyenne, her dog, and in the span of about 20 minutes, Cheyenne jumped on a woman in front of us, pulled a Christmas card out of another woman's purse, chewed on the buckles on my bag and tried to eat the tassels on my daughter's shoes...but Cheyenne was friendly. Behind her was Michael, the "chillest" dude ever, hipster behind him, etc. When it came to enter Zia, there was some concern from staff about the dog, so Michael suggested saving her place so she could place Cheyenne in the car. The woman's responded the dog could be stolen and there were reassurances all around regarding the unlikelihood of that...Michael almost prevailed until my daughter described a story she'd heard of stolen pugs being used as bait dogs...the dog remained and it was okay. The best of Tucson is not always in its places but its people like Michael and Zia staff who treat others with dignity and respect. It's not the first time I've seen it but every time I do I know I'm witnessing the best of Tucson.
Where is this list?
I never even got an email to vote. Very Unfair practices to not email subscribers-especially when they travel and have no access to paper.
@Tucson Kid: September 26.
Are they going to announce 2013 winners yet??
"Best Beer Selection" should have three categories: draft, bottle and most importantly local.
"Best Local Brew" would also be a good category now that we have so many breweries in town.
I'd like to nominate a category for the times and for the current local economy:
Best Places to recycle, pawn, sell or exchange goods and services.
You would think with 20,000 motorcycle riders in Southern Arizona you would find room for two or three catogories like: best Harey shop, best sport bike shops, best clothing and gear store. KI know of several weeklies in California that have these catagories in their "Best of" polls. Tucson is one of the best places to own a motorcycle in the US and over 15 business serve this community. Perhaps a bit more relevant that catagories like "Best Remodeled Greasy Spoon".
I have been going to Lotus Garden for years an have always reeceived good service and good food.Have gone their with my wife, and with parties of 12 and still received the same good service
Could we get a Best Computer repair shop in TUCSON Category? Thanks :)
I really wish there was a category for personal trainers and small locally-owned gyms. Why should a conglomerate big box even be included as a Best of Tucson category? At the very least, Tucson's best personal trainer or something like that, to recognize the small privately owned facilities that are getting and keeping Tucson healthy!
Why was the Hogpit Smokehouse not even considered in the judging for best BBQ in Tucson? If you haven't eaten there you are missing out on the best BBQ in Tucson
Thanks Tucson Weekly/Jimmy Boegle. Cecil B. DeMille, ole saying:"No Accounting for Taste" pardon my wearing out the ole quote,reminds me of a time when a couple had a place downtown who's moment, although ever so brief, was the "Hot Spot" as a Downtown Tucson Alliance Security guy best described:"Surreal like or something was his description in comparison to other establishments downtown. Nice compliment per his experience.
I was glad to see that Gold's Gym beat out the L A Fitnesses. I don't know what the staff at Gold's is like, but they couldn't possibly be worse than the LAF bunch. Try asking LAF to turn down the awful noise that comes out of their speakers when all you want to do is work out. Talk about surly.
The the Rotthner boy buys the county nursing home for over 1 million dollars less then the next bidder and claimes his daddys company that won the contract is unrealted because he will be creating a new LLC under which Daddy will give it to him. And I almost forgot, he asked us not to judge him on his fathers practices wiht include closed nursing homes, federal invesitgatuons and ties to racketering.
This guy ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When is the BOT being published for 2011? I have been waiting and its not on the shelves.
I love the BOT list every year. Tucson is a seriously fantastic place. Speaking of best outdoor recreation stores I've been trying to get my hands on a Dakota 20 GPS for a decent price for a while now and I'm wondering if you all know where would be the best place to look. Either here in Tucson or online.
Contact our circulation manager, Laura Horvath, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I get a paper copy of the best of tucson 2010?
