Re: “High Spirits

I'm so happy to hear that somebody is finally going to bring Khortytsa to the United States. I still have a bottle of Khortytsa Platinum I'm milking that I brought with me from the Republic of Georgia. I truly cherrish it and only take a shot of it on very special occasions. If I was able to go to the liquor store and pick up bottles of Khortytsa it would be like walking into heaven. I hope that it takes off and and knocks smirnoff and the other "popular" vodkas down a peg or two. Hands down best vodka I have ever tasted and THE best for straight shots.

Why pay less when you can pay more.

Re: “Before Organic Was Cool

I noticed that many things here are way overpriced. $2.50 for one avocado. And the oddest employees and patrons on the planet. Weird!

Re: “Before Organic Was Cool

I too remember the days of picking up your Co-op orders behind the building.
What a concept. That that co-op still thrives is a testament to the hard work and vision of the founders and to the spirit of the Tucson community.

Adam, the title makes me feel old. Once upon a time I lived on a farm where we were
organic and mostly sustainable. We grew most of our food, traded for other stuff, tapped maple trees for syrup, milked goats, raised chickens for eggs only, I even sewed stuff (not very well mind you.) but now when I hear the terms organic and sustainable I have to laugh, I think it's great but really nothing new. Of course, I don't live that way now. I'm a little lazy these days.

Re: “Sustainable Scoops

Congratulations to Isabella's Ice Cream! Great idea and how empowering to do as much as you can to be sustainable. Much success in your future expansions.

Re: “Before Organic Was Cool

As one of the people who started the Food Conspiracy I am glad to see it is still thriving. It has come a long way from out weekend gathering of grocery lists and purchasing in bulk for distribution.

Re: “Italian Style

I loved Vince's when I lived in Tucson in the 80s. The food was wonderful. I love to read articles like this. It's great to relive the past with great food from places like Vince's and The Big A.

Re: “Italian Style

There is a reason why these restaurants are now closed. Maybe people's expectations for good food are a little higher. I went to some of these restaurants and the food quality was real bad. I am Italian and know the difference. None of these places had decent food and I am glad they are no longer around

Re: “Part of the Herd

Great to know about this farm. I don't usually digest milk well, but years ago I had access to raw milk and not only did it taste much better to me, I had no difficulty digesting it.

Re: “Italian Style

Got a message on my Facebook page from the folks at Michelangelo's, that wonderful Italian place on Magee Road near Oracle Road.

They noted that when Damiano's closed in 1985 (like Da Vinici's someone bought the name) the opened their present restaurant thereby continuing the Damiano Ali family business.

Deadlines and word count prevented mention of this info in my article. It was by no means in any way an intentional omission.

It's nice to know the family tradition continues.

Re: “Italian Style

Baronetta! Honey, you really need that operation to have the stick removed. Loved the article, as I loved many the late restaurants mentioned on the list. Yeah, guess I'm old and been in Tucson too long. Damn right! Baronetta, move to Phoenix!

Re: “Part of the Herd

I am one of the happy members of the herd, and Shelby is the real deal. She is one of those lucky people who gets to pursue her passion for a living and it shows!

I am not so sure about all of the alleged benefits and dangers to raw milk because, frankly, both sides are pushing an agenda (though I would NEVER drink raw milk from a factory dairy farm where the animals live in their own filth and the farmers use pasteurization to hide the lack of sanitation), but the milk from Shelby's farm tastes incredible and the animals are happy and healthy. As a member, I am proud to support local agriculture and I'm thrilled to have a personal relationship with my dairy farmer and the animals.

Re: “Italian Style

This has to be one of THE most lame, not to mention useless, series of articles ever! How about giving us current info we can use rather than dwelling on the past!

Re: “Sorely Missed

RE: El Greco

Bill, it moved to Ft. Lowell just west of Swan and occupied a former Circle K (next to Chad's) and was open there for many years. I ate there a lot (Park) in college and followed them when they moved to better digs. The Mom & Dad retired and the kids were running the show. They decided they would rather lead normal lives then be married to the restaurant and after a couple years made the decision to close to pursue other careers.

Re: “Italian Style

When celebrating a special occasion there was no question that Scordato's was the destination. And DaVinci's was the perfect choice for that first date dinner. I miss them both. Thanks for the memories.
