Re: “The Best of the Best: Prize Minerals From the Vaults of Arizona's Collectors

Oops. Someone ripped off one of the prize pieces of the collection the other day - a hunk of gold nugget. Shameful.

Re: “Mount Lemmon SkyCenter SkyNights Program

Filled out the form that promised to contact me more than two weeks ago. Followed up with several phone calls, not returned. Any suggestions? Are they still in business?

Re: “Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

I couldn't agree more with the recent negative reviews. Our experience at the show was not just disappointing, but was really downright insulting. The food was inedible and the cast was absolutely terrible. Maybe years ago the show was good, but now it's just a bad middle school level improv that even a cast member's parent couldn't enjoy.
When they passed out the envelopes for the cast/servers "tips" (while pleading about how hard they had worked), we got up and walked out with about 3/4's of the audience. The comments on the parking lot were far funnier than anything said "on stage" that night.

Re: “Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

Would not recommend to anyone. It was low budget, amateur, sound system failed, food was cooled and gross. Show was stupid and not funny. Very corny! Actors looked like they did not want to be there. Drinks were over priced. We went on New Year's Eve and paid $75 a ticket for the dinner and show plus additional entertainment for New Year's Eve. Definitely did not get what we paid for. Do not go to this show! 12/31/13

Re: “Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

Please, I beg of you, do NOT go to their show. This production deserved NO stars. We went on 9/28, and I am still angry about losing $90.80 (incl tax). There were four "actors" who wanted to be somewhere else. A group of middle school kids could put on a better show. The acting was mundane without any flair or expertise whatsoever. It seemed to be totally impromptu and unrehearsed. Lousy Halloween costumes. The vampire didn't even bother to wear some convincing make-up. Unprofessional. They (or we) might as well have been reading on stage from a script. Little facial expression. The audience participation was the only good part. The tired old jokes were often crude and just not so funny. (Children were present.) Guppie was better as the inspector. The gypsy brought some enthusiasm to his work and at least dressed for the part. . . . . he had to because he is a man playing a woman. The story was stupid, unimaginative and ridiculous. The venue was the back room of a Chinese restaurant. Smelled. About 45 people stuffed into this small room next to the restrooms. There was NO stage, only a single backdrop, and 2 floodlights in back shown into the faces of half the audience. The meal was also a disappointing joke. Only water was served with the meal, and you had to ask for it. I went to the bar twice to get water for me and Mom. $2 for pop or iced tea. Not-so-fresh salad with same dressing for all. No bread & butter. Lots of noodles in a bland white (alfredo?) sauce. I think the chicken and rice in the breading was real. Half the people at my table of 8 barely touched their meal. Dessert was a TINY piece of cheap cheesecake, definitely not Cheesecake Factory. Please believe me, we were not the only people dissatisfied with the show and the meal. Those who purchased liquor or beer may have been happier. To add insult to injury, the actors said they were unpaid and asked for tips. Can you believe it -- at $42 a head for crappy acting and crappy food. PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS! 10/07/13

Re: “Thai Food Community Buffet Fundraiser

This event is awesome and without peer in Tucson. The food you eat is like what your grandma would make (if you had a Thai grandma). The first time we went, I was a little nervous, as I had never been in a Buddhist temple before; but, it's been smooth sailing ever since. Recommend you wear sandals with no socks, as you must remove your shoes before entering. If you end up eating in the rear garden, you won't want socks on (it's soft sand). If you eat in the temple, you must be shoeless also. Try this once, you will hooked. Best kept 'secret' in Tucson.

Re: “PCAP: Affordable Medical Solutions for Pima County Residents

In my experience (at one time I was enrolled in PCAP). PCAP has nothing to do with paying a premium and then getting access to medical services. PCAP is not medical insurance. PCAP is more of a delayed "pay your bill" program than it is medical insurance.

Re: “Plant Low-Cost Trees for Energy Efficiency

trico is a rip off maybe people would buy more if they were priced like TEP.

Re: “Plant Low-Cost Trees for Energy Efficiency

It seems like not enough people know about this fabulous program. You can also get trees for your street or neighborhood and THEY BRING THE TREES TO YOU! Do yourself, your pets, your neighbors a favor and get yourself some trees.

Re: “Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS! ZERO STARS!!

I got 4 tickets to the Mystery Theater as a gift for my mother. This cost about $200 so I expected quite a lot. When calling into the theater the man who answered the phone was completely unprofessional and rude. He explained how the evening would go, how wonderful the food would be, how interactive and engaging the show would be etc. but was condescending and impatient with me. He made me feel as if I was wasting his time, but I assumed he was busy, so I went through with the transaction…

When my mother tried to schedule a time to go to the show she was treated very poorly. She called in and booked a Saturday night, but immediately remembered that she had a prior commitment, so called them back within MINUTES. The man almost REFUSED to let her change days! She wanted to change to the Friday and he said she could not and that it was too late to do so! She had literally just spoken to him. He finally agreed to allow her to change days but made her feel bad about it. I was in the room and immediately became really worried about how her evening would play out…

When I next saw my mother I asked how the evening went- she just groaned! Horrible food (NOT what was promised when I made the ticket purchase). NO interaction from the people on stage with the audience (I was told that the staff would drop of clues at the table while the dinner was being served and that the entire evening would be highly interactive). The show was tacky, boring and not funny. My mother said at the end they simply gave the audience a piece of paper and said, “Read this and write your answers down and don’t forget to give us a tip.” Wow! All 3 of her friends were completely appalled by the show and staff.

I am so disappointed that I wasted so much money on this gift and even more disappointed that my mother and her friends had an awful time. PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS!

Re: “Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

This place was terrible!!! Although the play itself was fun, it was a rip off! We called to get our money back before the show after we read a review and the person on the phone was so rude! He was yelling at us and saying some very shocking statements, and would not give us our money back! The tickets are $42 each! That is almost as much as a Broadway ticket! The tickets were no way worth what the price was even with a meal. Bringing up the meal, first there was a salad, which one girl at my table was given no dressing, and my husband had to ask the drink waiter multiple times to get his drink. After the salad, they gave us Mexican food?? The plate was not even full! There was one chip, with a little bit of beans, a tiny enchilada, and a little piece of corn bread. I was about ready to ask the waiters (actors) serving, if that was all we were getting! The room and table clothes were dirty, and the little favors of bubbles they gave us were empty. The humor was crude, the list goes on.
