AZ Kenny Tsak and 56 Deluxe are great to dance to. The Boondock's has a large dance floor too! Great Fun! They do begin at 8:30 pm though. Get there early and enjoy yourself!
I ordered the mole at this restaurant once. It looked and tasted as though they had poured the contents of a spitoon over the chicken breast. It was awful. I have never returned.
I remember when the Dante's Fire building was actually on fire, in January 1996. Is this what they are naming the restaurant after?
I'll use the self check-out lanes when the stores offer a discount for doing so. I don't work for the store, so they should offer something for my helping them out. The only incentive appears to be to save some insufferable ass who's in line behind you from complaining while waiting his/her turn.
This also happened to me. My mothers wedding ring was sold to Super Pawn on First and I was able to identify; they told me to call and make a report to the police, then come back with the case number. Not having a cell phone at the time, I went home to place the call. When I called the police, the officer said they couldn't take it over the phone and for me to go back to the pawn shop and call from there (the pawn shop didn't tell me that is what I needed to do). When I returned, they claimed they didn't have it any more (even though the first woman I talked to said it was back in the office). They also have a distribution type set-up where they take in items (no longer pawn because they outright buy them), then send the items to a different store (making it harder for victims to identify items). Pawn shops are just legal fencing operations and the police and legislature and not vested in stopping it.
"My neighborhood activist friends—who've been f***ed by the powers-that-be so many times that they've taken to carrying condoms to City Council meetings—say that there is a fundamental matter of scale here, one that ensures profit for some, and misery for others. I sympathize, considering the history of such matters, including, most recently, a dastardly bait-and-switch by the city clerk, who handed the activists flawed petitions and then disqualified the same when they were returned filled with the signatures of thousands of citizens intent on shining the bright light of democracy on the matter."
I agree with you in that government serving the people should be a priority.
I don't agree with your use of profanity; many people of all ages, under 18 included, read the Tucson Weekly. Journalistic standards and all those other ethics we want everyone else to adhere to should be observed, even in opinion pieces.
We stayed at a "local" hotel for a semi "stay-cation" and received a $10 per night resort fee tacked on. This hotel was not a resort by ANY stretch of the imagination. Not sure what the "resort" fees include or if it's a tax placed by local government on hotels above a certain room charge. I've always thought of a resort as offering spa, golf, horseback riding or other services that a regular hotel does not.
