Re: “Vaudeville

All 3 DJs play vinyl-only obscurities from the 70's & 80's: Disco, Post-Punk, Coldwave, Synthpop, Electro, Italo, Early Industrial & Goth, 80's Detroit Techno & Chicago House. A veritable smorgasbord of synthetic weirdness to please the kiddies. Dancing is encouraged.

Re: “Famous Sam's E. Golf Links

Can the person who handles the bands at this location please, please hire someone who can play different types of music. I have lived 2 miles from you for ten years and never seen or heard anything but R&R bands in your place, enough already...Just Will

Re: “November Bar and Cabaret

Flyznest really missed out by not being adventurous enough to go to the VIP room. That’s one of the best things about this bar. I had seen the bikini sign occasionally while driving by, but never had the time to stop in. Then one night I wanted to go out and remembered the bikini sign. I’m glad I stopped in before reading flyznest’s review. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in. It has a relaxed no pressure atmosphere. In the other clubs around town, they kick you out if you don’t buy a drink within the first few minutes. I did buy a few drinks after a while (without any pressure from within) and they were very reasonably priced. The girls are very friendly and came up to chat with me right away. In the other clubs, you could be there for over an hours without getting noticed. When asked if I wanted a dance, I thought, what the heck, give it a try. I’m glad I did. The girls dance way better than anything you’ll get at the big clubs around town. When flyznest said they were generally fairly skilled go-go dancers, he wasn’t kidding. I’ve been back several times now, and plan to go back more. I won’t waist my time at the big clubs anymore, now that I’ve found the November Cabaret. 1-13-2010

Re: “The Bashful Bandit

Thunderous karaoke sound system, large song selection with the best versions, friendly, attentive sound operators and of course the most awesome bartender is just the begining on Mondays at the Bashful Bandit 3686 E. Speepway. The theme is Rite of Passage. Guys, see if you can make the punch bag machine go over 700 points. That is the required minimum for manhood status. Ladies, get the croud to make some noise while working the pole to achieve womanhood status.

Re: “Famous Sam's E. Golf Links

Dang. You guys are harsh! I don't see you up there playing, nor posting your photos for comments.
This town is so full of negative people. And you two proved it. I make one little comment and you rag on them. Remember what Thumper said!

Re: “November Bar and Cabaret

if you are a dive connoisseur then this is a must see. this is perhaps the best dive tucson has to offer. I went last night for my first time. I quickly learned that the best seats in the house face away from the stage... let me explain.

The bar is fairly complete and they have 2 pool tables that are in decent shape. The decor is very 70's... cheap paneling, amber glass covered light fixtures, booth seating, and concrete floors.... in the back corner there is a stage... The whole bar is well lit except for this corner so its almost like its not there... in fact there are few convenient places to sit where you can see the stage without turning.. The mens room smelled slightly worse than the los reales landfill and the odor spilled out into the bar every time anyone opened the door....(note... don't sit near the bathroom)

There were 5 girls working.... one was the bartender/owner... she wasn't dancing nor was she in a bikini or anything so I won't count her(incidentally she was by far the best looking). of the remaining 4, 1 was obviously pregnant, 1 was obese, 1 was wearing lots of makeup and sunglasses to hide her age... and the last one was decent looking but stayed outside in the smoking area the whole time and never came in to dance. The girls don't get topless on the stage, and I was not adventurous enough to go to VIP so I don't know what happens in there. Occasionally a girl would go up to the stage and dance... and they were generally fairly skilled gogo dancers.. but I once or twice had to question their overall motivation. At one point the girl with sunglasses went to sleep in one of the booths.

the patrons were a very blue collar crowd... well.. crowd is a lil bit of an overstatement... there were only maybe 15 customers(on a friday night at prime time). The average age was around 30. Nobody was mouthing off which was fairly relaxing after going to the traditional college haunts for the last few years.. I certainly wouldn't go in there lookin for trouble but I didn't feel the slightest bit unsafe.

Honestly... I had fun and will go back... its a dive bar for true dive bar fans... without the girls... without the bathroom.... without the crappy seating... it would just be another neighborhood bar.

Re: “Famous Sam's E. Golf Links

had the misfortune of eating lunch here this afternoon. the waiter service was plain awful! waited about 25 minutes for a rank tasting ruben and cold fries. to add insult to injury I had to get up and ask the bartender if my food was ready because my waitress was no where to be found. trust me! even if my plate had arrived much sooner the food would've tasted any better. warmer but not better. this place might be ok if you want to have a beer or two and watch one of those crappy bands that frequent this place but food, not!!

Re: “O'Malley's

To RyanG111 - Your review sounds more like a personal vendetta played through slanderous words than anything that resembles an intelligent review. There are things about this band I don't like either, but that's my personal opinion. I am adult enough to be able to speak of their professional musicianship and kitschy approach to the 80's look and sound - therefore - in this realm, they're dead on.
Grow up, man.

Re: “O'Malley's

I think this band rocks! They play the best 80s music and it's fun and entertaining...

Re: “Margarita Bay

I've been there many times, never left without buying at least three drinks, heck, even ordered food from them every now and then... They have a two drink minimum for karaoke singers, and I was still on my first one. I rarely drink, so I usually order soda. First, when I got there, there were 4 others sitting at the bar, none of them requiring anything, and the bartender was moving around the bar. I realise she had things to do, but after making eye contact with her a few times and speaking up a couple, I still stood there for almost ten minutes before she served me. Then, when I got up to sing my second song with 1/2 of my drink still there, Tammy, the karaoke host, gave me the mic, but before she would start the song, she called me back over to her. "Have you ordered your second drink yet?" she asked. I told her I wasn't done with my first one yet, but yes, I would be ordering a second. Her reply: "Well, technically, I'm not even allowed to let you sing until you've had at least two drinks." Affronted, I assured her that I would be ordering my second, then she finally let me sing. When I was done, I went back to the bar to finish my soda, but the bartender had dumped it out! I guess that's the way they treat people there... Especially if you're not a big money maker for them because you mostly just drink soda like I do. Not to mention the way that, even though my karaoke slip was the third up at the beginning of the night, I mysteriously wound up being 11th on the list... and skipped a few times to allow HER FRIENDS extra turns. I recommend going someplace else in the neighborhood, such as Driftwood, Fenderskirts, or Al J's, all down the street and much better.

Re: “O'Malley's

I think this band is awful! It's like Karaoke. Now they have this screeching horse face singer too! Dopey costumes. It's not a real band. O'malley's should get some good bands.

Re: “The Flycatcher

$5 jack 'n coke. In front of me: a tuba, xylophone and singer in top hat creating what they call "Doom Polka." To the left: a muscular back extending outward from the wall like 3-D is cupping a nude woman whose face is rounded to the size of a dramatic mask. Downward: An almost finished jack 'n coke. To my right: A smoking section patio open up to the music with a mural of fire and breasts.
Plush deserves five stars slapped on its ass.

Re: “O'Malley's

The club was friendly and a mixed crowd. Went to the show May 30th. Beyond The Firewall was one of the best bands I have seen for a long time. The have a sound that is real rock, not the screaming stuff all other bands are doing now day.
