Re: “Best Place to Get Something Framed

Michaels us a National Branded Big Box store. Is this not a local contest. Best of contest has become a big disappointment to all who vote and shop at local small businesses. Looking at winners it makes me sad that some of these people were picked when Gem and Mineral show is not a jeweler, it a event , best framing -Michael's should not be in mix. You should really only pick local shops.

Uh, President Bill Clinton ate at Mi Nidito in 1999, and sworn into his first term in 1993.

Re: “Best Local Actor

Love Joe Cooper and he deserves to be recognized as one of the funniest actors in Tucson. A very funny guy with a great sense of humor. He would probably find this recognition very funny since he hasn't acted at the Gaslight in over a year. That's right, the best actor in Tucson didn't grace any Tucson stage in 2015. It must be a very Tucson thing to get an award for being the best at something you didn't even show up for.

Re: “Best Art Classes

Really? You had to add that snarky comment at the end? All of the employees at Pima have been working so hard for the last couple of years to restore our great institution, and this is the thanks we get? What is it about you hacks that makes you unable to focus on one of our many positives for just a moment? I don't see this kind of poor treatment for any of the other "Best Of" winners.

Re: “Best Jewelry

As someone with quite a bit of insight said, "It's kind of like voting for Tucson Meet Yourself for best restaurant!" And it's true! Everyone who has previously won has been a shop. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is an event. Reality is that someone with a shop works hard to keep that shop open for us year-round.
Not to denigrate the work it takes to organize a huge event like TGMS, but they are only in town for a certain time, then you have to wait for next year. Or go to the next gem show in another locale. Which kinda ignores the purpose of Best of Tucson. The shop-owners of Tucson deserve better!

Re: “Best Day Spa

I would just love to know how many of the readers who voted for mirival... Have actually been... Or know exactly where it is... Not a place you can just walk off the street to enter... We as consumers should be supporting the little local guys... Not CORPORATIONS... Isn't that what the weekly is all about... Highly dissapointed... I voted for greentoes...

Re: “Best Jewelry

I cannot believe that people picked Tucson Gem & Mineral show when they are not local. All the mom and pop stores and this is what they get, What a shame

Re: “Best Place to Dance

For country music it's the Maverick on E. Tanque Verde near Grant. Club Congress is small and sweaty in summer. Lots of different types of music many nights. The occasional shows outside can be fun near winter.

Re: “Best Jewelry

I am a professional teacher, dress casual daily due to teaching Art to middle school students full-time and just have to honestly share:I had the best experiences ever at Silverberg & Sons! In 2009 I visited sereval jewelry stores and Bernie Silverberg was very professional, helpful and friendly in helping me with trustworthy gold weight prices.
Again,I had a need of a jewelry store since my pair of diamond earrings were recently stolen. After I made several visits to a variety of local jewelry stores I made a second visit to Silverberg & Sons due to remembering their honest and trustworthy prices.
I just have to add my last experience with them, they gave such positive family like customer service.
When I priced many jewelry stores for a replacement of my pair of diamond earrings,I quickly learned upon returning to Silverberg and Sons, the jewelry store was the best prices ever!
Edward Silverberg was very professional spent time sharing the prices of various diamond sizes, color, clarity, quality and a 1.71ct. diamond pair of earrings purchase was the result of my visit. I was and still am very pleased with Silverberg customer service and quality of jewelry.
In 08/2015 I recently recommended Silverberg & Sons to my young adult daughter and her fiancee to shop for their engagement ring and they also made a visit to another jewelry store and quickly returned to Silverbergs for their purchase of the engagement setting and diamond ring!

Edward Silverberg shared quality time educating the couple of the diamond GIA and the four C's and the store had awesome prices!
My daughter asked me to please join her as the ring needed to be sized and she picked up her stunning,sparkly ideal engagement ring on 09/19/2015! She is true filled with excitement to have this life time stunning high quality diamond ring, she and her fiancee are truly happy they shopped at Silverberg & Sons!
Thanks Edward Silverberg for being the best family jewelry store and sharing quality customer caring service, this service included educating the young adult couple about the GIA areas.
It has been my personal experiences to conclude Silverberg & Sons offer friendly professional time to all their customers as a standard when shopping for diamond purchases in Az.
