Re: “Best Movie Theater

This is dumb. I don't see Booger from Revenge of the Nerds visiting The Roadhouse.

Re: “Best Musical Instrument Store

I have always loved the Chicago Store. I do miss the old, much bigger location, though. It was a real Tucson institution. Phil and Joe Levkowitz started my loyalty 'way back in time and my loyalty continues with Mark. The eastside store has many large photographs from the old days that really make me nostalgic and remind me that this is still the Chicago Store. Long live the Chicago Store!

Re: “Best Art Classes

I have been thinking about taking art classes. I think I need a better creative outlet in my life. Art can be so therapeutic and fun at the same time!

Re: “Staff Pick: Best Art Exhibitions

Etherton Gallery is one of the best treasures in Tucson. We eagerly await each of their exhibitions. Truly a world class gallery.

Re: “Best Art Classes

What is with the negative comment at the end? This is pretty rude to say something so positive and end with a negative feedback. Pretty upset that the writer decided to do this.

Re: “Best Local Actor

Would love to be notified about events via email. Is there a way do this?

Re: “Best Local Actor

Had the pleasure of working on stage with Joe many years ago. He's a master at what he does, and a thoroughly nice person, too.

Re: “Best Local Actor

Love Joe Cooper and he deserves to be recognized as one of the funniest actors in Tucson. A very funny guy with a great sense of humor. He would probably find this recognition very funny since he hasn't acted at the Gaslight in over a year. That's right, the best actor in Tucson didn't grace any Tucson stage in 2015. It must be a very Tucson thing to get an award for being the best at something you didn't even show up for.

Re: “Best Art Classes

Really? You had to add that snarky comment at the end? All of the employees at Pima have been working so hard for the last couple of years to restore our great institution, and this is the thanks we get? What is it about you hacks that makes you unable to focus on one of our many positives for just a moment? I don't see this kind of poor treatment for any of the other "Best Of" winners.

Re: “Best Musical Instrument Store

'Grounded in the past'? True, if the past means the 40 yr old dust on overpriced by 3 times instruments, abysmal customer service and a generally rundown -going out of business sale- atmosphere. They are voted 'best of' because they are somehow surviving? They sure as hell aren't a real music store and haven't been for the 20 years I have lived here.
Want the real deal? Try Rainbow or Instrumental. Both modern customer oriented business'

Re: “Best Movie Theater

Why does the Loft seem to be hemorrhaging staff? How many new hires have they had in the last year or two and how many have stuck. Seems like some sort of mismanagement is going on.

Re: “Best Movie Theater

Loft also features beer/wine/pizza options and added a new on-site theater last year--huzzah!

Re: “Best Live Music Venue

I am a big fan of a terrific group out of Austin, TX------Hot Club of Cowtown. I THINK they have played Tucson in the past.

It's primarily a three piece "hot jazz and western swing" band: guitar, fiddle, bass-----all three unbelievably good.

I just saw their tour dates, and when I asked, via FB comment, if they would ever come to Tucson, they immediately replied they would love a gig there in January.

I figured you would be the best source to ask to spread this news and/or find them a venue.

Can you work on this? Or can you advise me what to do next? (I live primarily in New England where we discovered them at a festival. We come to Tucson for the winter.)

This is an amazing group!
