Due to construction on Stone Ave., Drachman Street is the easiest way to enter the parking lot.
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.
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.
Seriously! It's dead, stop milking it already. Good eye candy, but that was about it. See it on netflix.
Nobody has to gin up reasons not to like Trumputin - the traitor to America - Putin's pocket buddy, rapist, tax evader, narcissist, and business failure. But I see his tiny impotent supporters are here, crying and flinging their own poo, unable as always to provide valid sources or form cogent arguments about anything.
Michael S Ellegood were you using the term "shill" as a noun or a verb?
an accomplice of a hawker, gambler, or swindler who acts as an enthusiastic customer to entice or encourage others.
As a noun you would call her a swindler. Is there any room for a difference of opinion on education?
Grijalva has my respect: he keeps things real. SB1070 was bad law - the boycott was unfortunate, but it spoke to the issue for workers. However, in "post fact" life, I suppose the commenters above have a point.
Ally, I love your insights on our language and how it affects our sexuality. I'm a straight male, and I can tell you how much my sexuality has been inhibited by trying to conform to male dominant expectations. When I was in high school, "cunt sucker" was one of the worst things you could call a boy. Later in life, I would engage in cunt sucking (can I say that instead of the medical word?) only as "foreplay", to get her turned on so she would let me fuck her. Then I met a woman who insisted that I suck her cunt "all the way", then sent me home with nothing but sore balls and a wet face. At first I felt humiliated and abused, but her orgasms had me fascinated, and I kept coming back for more. There is nothing quite like the intimacy of feeling a woman's orgasm so close. It is not just "foreplay". It is the "main dish".
Yes who needs a job?
Hey David -
How about some coverage of wages, entitlements, and labor conditions in the businesses run by Trump and his cabinet picks, including De Vos?
Then, just to be sure you're being even-handed in your reporting -- something I know you care about -- you might include some info on wages, entitlements, and labor conditions in TUSD, making sure to include the outsourced substitute teacher labor force as well as the underpaid full time permanent teacher labor force. Don't forget to include the full amount of public funds going in management fees to ESI per month, as well as what ESI's vetting process is for the adults they recruit and put into classrooms with children enrolled in TUSD schools.
Thanks in advance for your work on this. And do keep shining a light, as Michael S. Ellegood requests, on the various ways -- and there are many of them, coming from several different political / ideological quarters at this point -- that children are getting a raw deal in American education these days.
I have always been offended by the way our culture turns sex into violent and disgusting terms like fuck and eat pussy. Fuck would be OK, if it weren't used 99% of the time to mean something violent or hateful you might say in a moment of road rage. Eat pussy is disgusting. I much prefer sucking cunt. Cunt would also be a perfectly good word, the equivalent of cock, nothing to be ashamed of, maybe even something you would use proudly, provocatively, like men use the word cock. I'll never forget the instant hardon I got at age 20 when my girlfriend asked if I would like to suck her cunt. I confess it was also too much for my virgin mouth, and I didn't take up her offer. It has taken many years, and quite a few bold women, to help me overcome my male programming. I wish more women would take back the word cunt, and not let our misogynistic male culture ruin it.
Interesting commentary David Safier, and with the billionaires our populist president elect has surrounded himself with right on target. Our soon to be Secy of Ed, is not an educator nor has she attended any public schools, nor has she saved on a school board by any measure, her only qualifications for the position is that she has been a shill for private schools.
As a side note, she has already influenced education here in Arizona. our newly elected freshman legislator from LD 1 (Prescott), David Stringer, was funded by DeVos. He greatly outspend his clean elections opponent and won the election. He too is for vouchers for all.
Keep shining a light on this David!!
and into the trash this article goes.
Why are there so many communist sympathizers and wanna-be anarchists here in Tucson? What on God's earth is going on at the University of Arizona????
You have spelled Banh Mi wrong...
We definitely don't have to wait for you to make a complete ass out of yourself Susan.
You've already done that 3 times in this thread.
You are such a classy lady.
The orange hate. You guys fracture me.
Yes, Susan Hirsh, the free market, which created a situation in which affordable housing has been in short supply in the Bay Area (even in Oakland), coupled with lax enforcement of government regulations that should have helped to protect the safety of those who must rent a place to live (as opposed to owning one, which requires capital and/or higher income levels), created a tragedy in Oakland.
Don't tell me, Susan, that you favor government regulation? Rent controlled housing for lower income brackets? Raising the minimum wage, perhaps? Government enforcement of health and safety regulations?
(It seems in their sick quest to turn every current event -- even tragedies like this -- into an indictment of "liberals," some commenters can't even recognize when the arguments they make are incompatible with their standard-issue right wing talking points and corporate-manufactured ideology.)
"Preliminary indications suggest the blaze was not caused by arson, but rather an electrical fire. The power went out inside the building when the fire began and the flames blocked the building's only exit, making it difficult for people inside to escape, an official briefed on the ongoing investigation told ABC News."
And Susan Hirsch is attempting to slander liberals by suggesting they started this. What a disrespectful move to all those involved.
