Re: “Hacienda del Sol

The food is fantastic. Unlike anything you can get anywhere in Tucson. We never cease to be surprised by the appetizers and delighted by the entrees. There is a great selection of wine. It is not inexpensive but the food is unforgettable. We love to get appetizers and drinks in the bar when out on a date night or when the budget requires.

Not to be missed - go for a horseback ride at the stables and then pop in the bar for a drink to relax afterwards. What a wonderful place - nothing like their cactus garden and historic property, great riding stable and knockout food. It truly is a gem.

Re: “CrossFit Works

The community is awesome. Even if the owners are a little off setting at first they are great people and have built a great gym community. The trainers are very skilled but also friendly, and the other gym members are insanely supportive.

Re: “Health South

I was a patient in this facility, and I have to say this is one of the best places out there. They have a wonderful, and caring staff! They really are cargivers and if it wasn't for them I would not be where I am today.
Thank you, Health South...Kudos to you!!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

A very well-kept secret! What a jewel. Most unique place for wine and wine tastings. Nice to know you are getting a good value (everything is under $15, but has to "pass mustard" to be in the shop) - even without the wine tastings! Highly recommend CataVinos!!

Great independent bookstore with friendly, knowledgeable staff! you'll find not only new bestsellers but local authors' works from small presses, used books, a fun selection of cards, shirts, jewelry and "schtuff" for unique gifts. Truly a Tucson Gem!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Tucson's greatest little niche for wine! Great place to find affordable wines that you like (and not just the labels) ... and meet new friends, bonding over palates! Great place to take those out-of-town guests too, always a great theme tasting each week.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

A great place to shop for delicious and affordable wine. Yvonne and her staff search the marketplace for those rare and up-and-coming wines to stock in the store and keep things fresh and interesting. Cata Vinos is out in front of the pack while the big box stores still lag behind the Tucson wine scene. Plus the wines are less than $15.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

My partner and I love to start our weekends off at Cata Vinos for the Thrusday or Friday night wine tasting. Yvonne (owner) always has great wines selected for the tastings and we usually pick up a bottle or six from the tasting to take home and enjoy. It's a warm, friendly place were we can get together at the end of the week and relax or meet friends and catch up over delicious, very reasonably priced wines. Even though we live in Vail, we just have to get our regular Cata Vinos fix...it's definitely worth the trip.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

I HIGHLY recommend Catavinos and its owner Yvonne Foucher. Catavinos is a nice little bodega on the East side of town. It has a wonderful variety of foreign and domestic wines and a ceiling price, in the store, of $15.99. Catavinos offers a fine atomosphere for shopping, tasting, and learning about wines. Yvonne is a VERY knowledgeable and friendly proprietor who always has a smile and a tip on the latest tasty addition to her bodega. We live more than 20 miles from Catavinos, don't get there as often as we'd like, but still stop in to stock up whenever we're in the neighborhood. Despite not seeing us as often as her regulars, Yvonne remembers us, our tastes in wine, and greets us warmly. Don't take my word for it. I urge you to try Catavinos for yourself and note why it is a delightful difference on the landscape of Tucson wine stores!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

At the top of my list for a place to get together with friends and get to meet others. The price is right at under $15 per bottle.

Re: “Lucky Strike Bowling Center

Lucky Strike gave my friends the best time of their lives! We push to go every day of Winter Break! Everyone loved it! I even won 2 stuffed animals on the crane machine.

Re: “Eckankar Center

I love this church. A place where I can get great tools for helping me with the challenges in my life and outside of the box answers for my concerns. Also I love the fact that this is about my direct link with God and the Holy Spirit, and my unique way. So wonderful!

Re: “Eckankar Center

Very friendly atmosphere where people share their Love for God. An extensive library of books to borrow. A place where people don't "push" their beliefs on others and yet are open to share their experiences.

Re: “Bon

This place is a treat to behold. Whether you bring something home or not, both of their locations are sources of inspiration, and it goes without saying that the ladies who run Bon are quite inspiring and beautiful themselves! One of my favorite places to go when I can't seem to get out of a rut. Thank you Bon!
