We used to stop in to grab coffee on our way to work quite a lot. Owner was nice, but so chatty that it kind of got on our nerves...so we didn't go in as much. The last time we did stop in, she must have been in a bad mood, because when we placed our coffee orders she said something to the effect of "It's going to be awhile because I'm cooking these orders" in a snippy voice. Okay.....fine.....sorry to have bothered you. And we haven't been back since.
Speaking as a mom, my perfect mother's day wouldn't include going out to a fancy place.
It WOULD include my kid cleaning the house, washing the dishes and the clothes, then leaving for several hours so I could enjoy my nice clean house alone. Upon his return, he'd make me his great scrambled eggs for dinner, then clean the kitchen again.
Oh, and a bar of good quality dark chocolate would be nice too.
I don't know if Bookmans counts as media, but they have a decent Twitter feed for their Tucson stores. Even better, their community rep has her own Twitter feed, and is good about keeping us in the loop about Food Truck Fridays and other Bookmans events, as well as non-Bookmans events around town.
We tried this place because of this menu, and we were happy. The only things we didn't like was the overabundance of mint in the veggie spring roll, and having to ask for chopsticks.
Thanks for the update on Jenny and Chris. Although I saw the news blurb about Jenny a week or so ago, it's good to have something longer.
I was one of those Mountain fans who was left out in the cold and bewildered. But before Jenny & Chris got the boot, I thought something was up when they got rid of Astrologer Dawn's segment. But when J&C were thrown out and the format changed, I bought a Pandora One subscription and dumped local radio.
Welcome back Rebecca!
Currently, we've got hardy plants (aloe vera, yucca, mesquite, prickly pear) and they were all fine. However, it was warm enough that my 13-year old insisted he didn't need a jacket or hat, but cold enough that we had to scrape ice on the rear window of the car. :)
I'd been a loyal listener of 92.9 for quite some time. I was really happy when Chris came on board--he was a fellow nerd, and brought a geeky perspective to the show. It was nice to have a solidly local show that was actually invested in Tucson. It's so sad to see Clear Channel dismantle it in favor of some generic programming. I'll always be thankful to Chris for introducing me to the music of Mumford & Sons and Local Natives. I wish both Jennie and Chris the best and hope they land on their feet.
