Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Should be Best of Tucson consistent winner for all the special selections hand-picked for her customers. Learn a little about wines at the tastings or ask her questions when you shop - she has all the answers - really knows her wines! AND is super nice too! A pleasure to shop here and the quality of the selections is guaranteed to be a good place to get gift-wines without wondering if you did OK!

Re: “Pima Community College, Downtown Campus, Amethyst/Community Room

Due to construction on Stone Ave., Drachman Street is the easiest way to enter the parking lot.

Re: “Margarita Bay

I have been a regular patron of Margarita Bay for almost 10 years. First and foremost, this is one of the best, if not the best location in Tucson to sign karaoke. Karaoke is available every evening, and each of the KJs (there are 3 spread across each week) knows what they are doing, and is very consistent in maintaining the "rotation" of singers, including judiciously mixing in new arrivals throughout the evening. If you have come to sing, you will get your chance. Depending on the night and the number of karaoke singers before you (and note that if you are a new arrival you do get inserted to the rotation immediately after the most immediately prior arrivals have had their first opportunity) you will get to sing as soon as is possible. Bar offers a wide variety of beverage from a good mix of draft and bottled bear, to other liquors and mixed drinks to a selection of better wines by the glass or bottle. Bartenders are expert at their craft, and without exception know how to maintain a crowd. With all of the above considered, consistently my favorite feature is the the wide mix and background of the crowd. Without exception, when you walk into the "Bay" you leave the outside world behind, and are there to enjoy an evening with a great collection of friends and acquaintences who are there for the same reason you are, to have a great evening, and for many to sing a song or two. I am a great fan of the Bay and expect to be for many years to come.

Re: “Saffron Indian Bistro

My husband and I have been watching Kitchen Nightmares recently and I felt it was our responsibility to let the public know about this place.

He worked there for a few weeks a couple years ago. He quit because he said the place was filthy. He previously worked at Olive Garden for 3 years which has is immaculate I might add. He ended going back to Olive Garden.

When they were showing him around they went inside the walkin in cooler. On the floor was a bin...like a Sterilite bin. Inside this bin was their main sauce that they use. It was not covered at all, just sitting on the floor open to let stuff fly in it. They told him to step over so they could show him stuff. He lost balance while doing so (those things are pretty large) and his foot went in the sauce. He immediately apologized and they were like "Don't worry about it" and continued to use it. His nasty dirty shoe WENT IN THE SAUCE and they STILL USED IT!!!! EW. He also said the kitchen was disgusting. He actually took it upon himself and tried to clean it.

He and the other line cooks would smoke in the walk in cooler. The managers/owners did know about this because he said one time they walked in when they were smoking. The guy was like "Hurry up" He also said they would sometimes join.

Before I even met my husband and knew about this place, many of my friends had gotten food poisoning from this place as well.


I beg of you, please please do not go to this restaurant. I've never eaten there myself and now I never will.

Re: “Two for One

"...he is probably best known for his 1994 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross, which he adapted for film in 1992. "

Unless time has ceased to be linear, I'm going to assume you meant "his 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play."

Re: “Guitar Hero

I go way back with Robby and graduated with him at Sahuaro, he was awesome then as he is now. Everyone of us knew how great he was back then and always enjoyed watching him jam and hanging out with him. The desert parties at 17 poles and at rockafellas was the best. Great job Robby, Tucson is proud of you and so am I

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

"Then Herod sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under." Matthew 2:16

Legal, according to the law of the day.

There is legal, and then there is ethical. There is legal, and then there is humane.

How many cases throughout history have there been where the law has been out of alignment with what is just? It would be impossible to list them all.

What makes anyone think that American law is more immune from error than German law during the 1930s? Than the law in the USSR during Stalin's purges? Every society has to balance respect for the law with trying to discern cases where what is legal in a particular time and place may not be what is right. That's what individual conscience, for those who believe that such a thing exists, is meant to do.

Re: “Guitar Hero

For years after the Rhode Island fire that killed 100 people, Jack Russell was, by all accounts (even his own), trying to kill himself with drink. That's what "suicidal nostalgia act" means

To the writer of this article: What exactly is a "Suicidal Nostalgia Act?"....What does it even mean? I find it a bit offensive mysel.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Thank you, David, for highlighting this constructive statement of a commitment to protect and nurture every student in a diverse student body. From what I've heard, Phoenix Union has constructively applied the desegregation funding allocated to it to support student needs and achieve student benefit. The ATTITUDE of leadership -- evidenced In statements like this, in the quality of relationships developed with representatives of the courts and plaintiffs, and in how funds are actually applied in the schools or in central admin or in litigation -- is so important in an educational community serving the underserved. A constructive attitude rigorously focused on student benefit has been sadly lacking in some other districts applying desegregation funds.

Dare I think that that may be part of your point here? No, that would probably be too much to ask.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Hmmm. Too bad they don't choose America, the Constitution of the United States, the rule of law, not man.

Liberal indoctrination of our children is destroying our country. Americans must take back our public education system. Liberals, 'progressives', are exploiting our children for their own political ideology and to stuff their pockets with taxpayer dollars.
