Re: “Karuna's Thai Plate

If you're entertaining your yachting buddies from the Riviera and are looking for a local showpiece to impress...this is not the place. If you're looking for great Thai food at a great price...Ill see you there!!!!

Re: “The B Line

One of my very favorite places to eat breakfast in Tucson. The carne asada breakfast burrito is Tucson's best. The biscuits, available on the weekend, are superb, and again the best in Tucson. I also like the bagel and lox plate. In terms of lunch/dinner, I enjoy the pasta alla vodka (pay the extra $ and get the sausage on top), as well as the fish tacos. Wait staff are nice and attentive, and it's a great place to have a conversation (meaning, you aren't impeded by too-loud music or bad acoustics as happens too much in Tucson).

Re: “Guiseppe's

We have been going to Gueseppi for the last year or so. I wanted to add a current review here.
The food is really really good. I had the Shrimp Picatta last night. It had plenty of perfectly cooked shrimp, artichoke, spinach and capers in a wine butter garlic sauce and served over linguinni. This is one of the best restaurant dishes I have ever had anywhere. It was a special but they said to just ask for it anytime and they would make it. The eggplant parm here is also the best in town. The prices are very reasonable and service has always been great for us.

Re: “Jim and Vickie Click Boys and Girls Club

This place is a total blessing! My son has been going here since we moved from California a couple months ago, and he loves this place. He attends here after school and truly loves all the great activities, and especially the legit basketball court he can ball at. His goal in life is to become a professional NBA player, and once he saw the court he fell in love with it. Paid $10 for the whole school year, and they even provide dinner for the kids at 5:30pm every day. Staff is great! They really create a relationship with the kids, and get to know them and the parents well.

I wish I could personally thank Jim Click & his wife for this wonderful facility. I drive 22 minutes every day just so he can go. He doesn't even want to leave the place.

Def 5 Stars!

Re: “FortĂ­n de las Flores

This is a nice place to shop for gently used clothes. Every time I go there I find either, shoes, jewelry or clothes that in great condition and can't beat the price. I bought a beautiful black evening dress that I got so many great comments on when I wore it. The staff there is so friendly and helpful and the nice music they play as you are shopping in very inviting and pleasant. They definitely get 5 stars. Check it out!!

Re: “Barbea Williams Performing Company

Barbea is a wonderful teacher and performer. I'm honored to be in her class learning Brazilian African dance. She always has a good attitude, smile on her face, and spunk. I'd love to dance in a class with her every day.

Re: “Pat's Drive-In

Pats is still great but the Pats on 6th. Avenue was the REAL Pats.
You could buy an 8 pack with a box of fries for around $1.25, and the quality of the food was REAL food; NOT turkey or who knows what the corporations now have you eating.

Sure do miss them and Sandy's; THE best burgers in town! 10 for a buck!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Always a joy to stop in at Cata Vinos. Yvonne and the staff are always so helpful in helping find the right wine for my tastes. So many wonderful wine to choose from, and it isn't necessary to bust my budget on pricey wines. Highly recommended.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

This is a wonderful wine shop with a variety of wines that are budget-friendly. Cuvee, the greeting dog, is super friendly as is Vino the cat. What could be better than tasting wine while petting a cat or dog? The personal attention Yvonne Foucher gives to each customer cannot be matched by any of the "big box" stores. Definitely earns every star possible!

Re: “Buffet at the Desert Diamond Casino and Hotel

Food is OK, but I had to wait almost fifteen minutes for a waitress to come over to take my beverage order. The place had three or four tables full.

Re: “Southwest University of Visual Arts Galleries

Southwest University Of Visual Arts, the Woods, staff and students created an atmosphere of acceptance and respect for all thirty-five years ago and now, because it's the right thing to do.

How do I know?

I was affiliated with SUVA for over twenty of SUVA'S thirty-five years. Also, I've worked thirty plus years in most aspects of advertising and marketing; so I've seen a thing or two, maybe even three; diversity and respect for all are key ingredients at SUVA.

Re: “Margarita Bay

I just wanna start off saying, I love the bay. I love going their and singing my heart out when I can... It's my neighborhood bar, and I go there as often as I can. That being said, lemme tell you all about my experience tonight.

First off, I'd like to start by saying that the regular bartenders and karaoke dj are very much biased to sexual orientation. This being a bar, I would normally understand. Except for tonight, when apparently a customer of the male persuasion, happened to see a female customer whom he had a restraining order against. Upon seeing said patron, the male customer did as the restraining order suggested, and called the police. Not my first reaction to an ex, as I would have just left, but nonetheless still his reaction. Anyway, the cops showed up...

Now let me make it clear, I DO NOT KNOW EITHER PARTY INVOLVED. I just happened to be standing at the rear gate when 3 tpd officers arrived. They then had a short conversation with the owner Dennis, whom also, I had never met. They asked him directly if he knew what was going on. To which he replied, no, then he admitted that he did have knowledge of a restraining order issue that was being handled. At that point, one of his waitresses, said that yes, she was hiding in the bathroom, and she was leaving. I, having nothing to do with either party just sat there, enjoying my drink and the night.

Later, when I happened outside again, I saw the bartender ( an older lady with a puffed up hair do and bad makeup) and the karaoke dj argueing with the male patrons friends on why he had to leave, did I mention that I had been there when tpd had said that the girl had to leave. That they wouldn't be charging the male and also letting him go back into the bar. Suddenly, I was an issue too. I told them that I didn't want any trouble, but rather that I was just stating the truth. I truly was just telling the truth, not thinking anything else about it.

I then went back inside to check on my song selection, considering that it had been over 2 hours since my last song, only to be told that because I had the audacity to tell the truth, I was done singing for the rest of the night. When I asked why, I was told that "it was because I couldn't shut my mouth". I then stated that I had only told the truth, and that I didn't wanna start shit, but that IS what the officer said. At that point the karaoke dj told me that I was cut off and was about to get kicked out. At that, I began questioning why. I can admit (mainly because I am NOT a liar, and I had had 2 and a half beers) that I did get upset, and I did raise my voice. I said "why would you kick me out for telling the truth? " and "that IS what the officer said" over and over. Suddenly someone said that I was starting shit with the dj. I told them that they were very wrong, but that I just didn't understand why I was being persecuted for telling the truth. At which point I was grabbed by a customer and started to get escorted out by force. During my forced exit, I saw the dj talk to another patron, who then also got in my face saying that I had tried to hit said dj. He then proceeded to follow me out threatening me that if I ever came back there he would "kick my ass". Now, I can admit, that yes, at this point I went from upset to pissed off, and I also began to talk shit back. Telling the old man that I would love the chance to kick his ass back. Truthfully though the guy was so old that I was almost afraid that he might have had a heart attack in the parking lot... and no, of course, it wasn't Dennis the owner. Just some jackass friend of the dj not really knowing what was going on, but still their to defend his girl.

My point is, after all of that, obviously I wasn't drunk because I am writing this as I walk home. Obviously, the owner, Dennis, should have let the rest of the staff know what tpd said before leaving the premises . Obviously, I should not have been persecuted for telling the truth. And obviously, I will never be back here. Which is a sad statement, because I truly did enjoy the place until now. I will also be letting every single person I know, and come into contact with, know what happened to me here. On every single site, and blog I can find. Plus, because I personally know of many times they have served to people they shouldn't, and over poured to regulars. And because I live directly across the street, I will be calling the police every time I see anything that looks like it could be fucked up until I get them closed down... I promise.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Great wines, great prices, and best of all the staff and shoppe are animal friendly! Cuvee the dog and Vino the cat are wonderful additions to this lovely shoppe. Wines from around the world, fabulous bargains for Wine Club members, with an option to donate a small monthly amount to local charities. Do us all a favor and skip the Big Box Wine stores!

Re: “Cuadro Arte Latino Internacional

The art is so beautiful, the staff is friendly, the gallery is nice and cool, and the art is priced to sell fast. It is smart to buy a painting here now because the paintings value will go up really fast in the near future. I bought several Ben and Johnny Impossible paintings, they are my favorite! I love !
