Re: “Cushing Street Restaurant and Bar

The food was merely adequate, and the service was downright bizarre: we were in the middle of our appetizers when the main course was served. That's lousy kitchen management.

Re: “The Verdict is in and the Show Will Go On

Notable that metro Phoenix, with its 4+ million residents, had substantially fewer donors than Tucson.

Re: “Slice of Life: Sachiko Sushi

The ramen at Sachiko is completely forgettable. Not that there's great ramen in Tucson (Obon is OK) but Sachiko's is not even close. The sushi, however, is terrific.

Re: “Jackson Tavern Closes After a Five Month Run

What's wrong with Little Rhody? I've had excellent clam rolls there. Some serious anti southern New England trash talk

Re: “A Slice of Arizona

With the excellent pizza in Tucson (to name a few: Reilly, Falora, Time Market), it is beyond absurd to wait two hours for the privilege of ordering a pizza.

Re: “CD2 Update: Roughly 200 More Ballots Have Turned Up in Pima County

Looks like McSally territory, so the most likely effect is to take her total above the threshold for a recount.

Re: “The Saga of the Downtown Motor Hotel

Even non-profit developers? With a mission of serving the poorest and most in need? http://compassaffordablehousing.org/. And to repeat, the building pictured in the photo WILL be saved. (By the way, I'm not attempting to be anonymous. My Weekly profile uses my initials. David Wohl)

Re: “The Saga of the Downtown Motor Hotel

Ah, the siren song of the NIMBY, who professes to love affordable housing as long as it's far, far away from him or her.

What is particularly interesting about this feeble attempt at journalism is that there is absolutely no indication of any effort to seek the perspective of the proponents of the project. (Such as, "We tried to reach Compass Affordable Housing but it declined to comment.") Nor does the "article" (perhaps "screed" would be a better description) make any mention of the fact that the historic building fronting the street will be retained and renovated. In other words, the low-slung building will NOT be demolished. But I suppose that actual reporting is expecting too much. Finally, the writer fails to point out that neither of the two neighborhood associations (Armory Park and Barrio Viejo) oppose the project.

For what it's worth, while I know and have worked in the past on other projects with the developers, I have absolutely no involvement or financial interest in this project.
