He never asked that his donation be kept anonymous. What I should have said is that he donated it to me straight away and without expecting any return whatsoever for his generosity. He said he wanted to help the homeless people he saw walking in front of his shop, and told myself and several other people in attendance that he wanted to help in any way he could. Am I only to report what I see when everybody knows I'm collecting information for my column?
"and Ray's actions were meant to be anonymous." This is what Adam Borowitz reported. If Mr. Ray wanted anonymity then it would seem to be disrespectful and unethical to write about his gracious and charitable act. The issue is simply that Mr. Ray, according to the story, did not want to be publicly acknowledged. No stone throwing here, simply an observation. I believe that the Weekly embarrassed Mr. Ray by publicizing an action that was meant to be private.
Explain yourself, Gurnemanz. Do you know that Mr. Ray has an issue with this being printed? Or are you just throwing stones?
Mr. Ray wanted his donation to be anonymous. You acted unethically by printing this information.
Just got my account setup and can't wait for the next issue ! Ace
OOOOOHHHHH....Le Delice is opening!!! Again. For the 5th or 6th time. I mean what is going on with this musical chairs closing, re-opening game? The place is an unfriendly dive. Over-priced, odd food, weird little strip mall location, pretending to be French, or Swedish or whatever...I'll pass, thanx. We are in a DEPRESSION restauranteurs!! Can you possibly accomodate that big reality?
We had a great time at Amarsi tonight. What a breath of fresh air this place is. First of all..they have a very professional staff here. This is quite uncommon in Tucson. These guys know their stuff and it shows. We had Thomas..again as our server. What a wonderful , caring and true pro he is. He patiently guided us through the menu and made several fantastic wine selections for us..all the while making it seem effortless and always with a smile...not an easy task on such a busy night. The food was VERY well done ..typical of where I grew up and the whole place made me feel at home. The fried calamari is a keeper as are the clams in white wine sauce. The veal was really nice..(Saltimbocca) extremely tender and well cooked.. My only reservation was that the two desserts we had..they were both quite dry...All in all a fantastic dinner again at Amarsi. We will be back at least once a week...
Chile Verde downtown closed this week. Maria Bonita on North Oracle is closed.
rconnelly: You are so right! Mi Nidito is now open for business after a short summer break.
My guess summer vacation
Plenty of places take a few weeks in summer to beat the heat and cuz business is slow
Wondering: I stopped by Mi Nidito this morning in an attempt to figure out what's going on. If anything emerges we'll blog about it on The Range.
anyone know why Mi Nidito has been closed?
I have to disagree with downtowner on Cafe Pacific. While I'm sorry to see another local business close, I can see why. When I ate there the service was great but the food was borderline inedible and there were roaches on the floor slowly crawling around... ugh, bad memory.
Cafe Pacific at Prince and Campbell closed recently. Too bad. Their food was excellent. Last time we went, a month or so ago, there were 2 tables occupied, and one take-out order.
John - It looks like it's being demolished. Bet the city grabbed that property for Grant Road widening project.
Have you guys heard anything about the closure of Hamburger Stand on Grant?
Chopstix closed? No surprise. Always resented paying more in Oro Valley for the same food served at the Chopstix located at Palo Verde and Ajo Way. It's a grind on Campbell joins in the demise of the other two locations closed in the last year. Both of which became Krispe Kremes. Hey wait a minute! Maybe...
I'm glad to hear that the owners of Gandhi are opening up a new place. I wish we could get a good Indian restaurant on the southeast side of town...
As an added bonus to this wonderful column, if you are in the downtown area, Old TEP building there is a cafe inside that serves a variety of lunch items through the day until 3pm. All the menu items are from the UA Student Union and on Thursday they serve tacos. In addition, they also have store items like candy bars, bottled soda & juices, during the holidays they also sell baked goods like pies and special desserts. 220 W. 6th Street - Old TEP building.
Retrorv: The beer was distributed after pledges were made by businesses. I'm not sure there is a crime to report, being that the beer wasn't technically stolen.
