Re: “Presidio San Agustín de Tucsón

Regarding review from 04/09/2014 on Living History Days, "No mention of the Apaches?" 1) Talk to docents and any of the historical interpreters, look at posted info and books in the shop; 2) Yes, the Tucson Weekly staff could post a bit more; 3) Other mention and historical interpretation depend on having more volunteers do more work-- we are full up and many cover other sites and events as well--but could use more people; perhaps some descendants of "Manzo" Apache might serve--or others with serious interest--let us know.

Re: “Harkins Tucson Spectrum 18

I hated this place so much I never went back.

I had to run some errands and, as it happened, got to the theater 20 minutes early. Not knowing better I went inside expecting to spend a few minutes in quiet contemplation. Unbelievably, full-screen TV commercials were screaming at the audience. I walked the halls to avoid hearing loss until the movie was ready to start and then sat through 15 minutes of previews. When the movie finally started the sound volume was about as loud as I could stand and the sound coming from the next theater was loud enough to follow the story there, too.

Re: “Margarita Bay

I have been a regular patron of Margarita Bay for almost 10 years. First and foremost, this is one of the best, if not the best location in Tucson to sign karaoke. Karaoke is available every evening, and each of the KJs (there are 3 spread across each week) knows what they are doing, and is very consistent in maintaining the "rotation" of singers, including judiciously mixing in new arrivals throughout the evening. If you have come to sing, you will get your chance. Depending on the night and the number of karaoke singers before you (and note that if you are a new arrival you do get inserted to the rotation immediately after the most immediately prior arrivals have had their first opportunity) you will get to sing as soon as is possible. Bar offers a wide variety of beverage from a good mix of draft and bottled bear, to other liquors and mixed drinks to a selection of better wines by the glass or bottle. Bartenders are expert at their craft, and without exception know how to maintain a crowd. With all of the above considered, consistently my favorite feature is the the wide mix and background of the crowd. Without exception, when you walk into the "Bay" you leave the outside world behind, and are there to enjoy an evening with a great collection of friends and acquaintences who are there for the same reason you are, to have a great evening, and for many to sing a song or two. I am a great fan of the Bay and expect to be for many years to come.

Re: “Thirsty's Neighborhood Grill

Thirsty" had the best Karaoke in town on Thursdays from 9:00 pm to 2:00 AM with Ynot Karaoke and some great DJ's.
I was very sorry to see Karaoke discontinued over a year ago now it seems.
Their food was always good. I especially recommend their soups and the shoe-string fries. I don't know if they have the same cook. If they do, you can always get a good meal.

Re: “Sky Bar

Apparently, don't ever go there on Thursday. We tried tonight but there was someone playing about the worst thing to ever claim to be music about 5 times too loud. We ran away quick enough thank god. You'd think the fact that there wasn't one person at this usually busy bar, except those willing to huddle on the patio with hands clenched to ears, would raise a few flags with management. Too bad. Usually this is a great place, except when certain bartenders at working. But that's a story for you to discover for yourself. Good luck.

Re: “Mauricio Fregoso Salon

If you are a blonde, Mauricio is your man!! He is hella talented when it comes to color. Plus, he goes the extra mile to correct your color the right way not just half a$$. He wants you looking good and feeling confident when you leave his salon. Also, having extensions… He saved me money. My previous stylist, (at a totally different salon), told me I could not reuse them. Mauricio took one look and said, "of course you can!" Then went on to properly educate me about extensions. It’s rare to find a stylist who will not try to take advantage. Mauricio is a true gem and my hair will be forever thankful.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

This place was NOT good. We had about 24 members of the USS ARIZONA PEARL HARBOR SURVIVOR ASSOCIATION observing the December 7 anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. We did have one survivor with us (only 7 are still alive). The "show" was surreal and corny. Most of us pushed full plates of food back, uneaten. For this our group payed $1000.
This is my opinion and not necessarily the position of our association. I gave it one star because there was not a zero star option.

Re: “Fred's Arena Bar and Steakhouse

Fred's is a long drive from Tucson, off Sierrita Mountain Rd. and not so easy to find, but worth the effort. It's nothing fancy - just an old-school steakhouse with good food and a great, out-in-the-country atmosphere. The beef is the best thing to order on the menu. Fred's has a roping arena and also stores a lot of the rolling stock used in the Rodeo Parade. We have been going to Fred's for over 30 years, even though we no longer live in Tucson. It's a taste of what Tucson was like before the population explosion.
