Re: “The Fathead Shop

just recently went to fatheads and ordered a piece custom made. Nothing to say except that they did not honor their work which was flawed (actually so bad designed that it wouldnt work) long story short dont expect anyone there including the owner thats a real asshole.

Re: “The Fathead Shop

BEWARE OF THIS SHADY, MANIPULATIVE, AND IRRESPONSIBLE SHOP!!!!!!!

I would honestly give this shop a -5 if that were an option and here are my reasons:

1. WORST 'CUSTOM' PIECE:
My boyfriend and I purchased a custom piece from this shop as a gift for his father. We called about this order, came in and figured out the details, and really had high hopes for the results. We live across the country and three weeks later, we received the piece and it was the biggest disappointment for paying $140 plus shipping.

- the tinniest bowl that cannot even fit a screen or adequate amount of product
- a skinny stem that almost touches the bottom, which is impossible to clean
- water comes in to your mouth every time you try to hit it
- the choke position is extremely hard to use
- the glass is pitted and dented
- the dimensions were significantly smaller than what was requested

2. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE:
We called this place immediately upon receiving this disappointment. Every person that we talked was extremely disrespectful and gave us the run around. My boyfriend and I tried to talk to the manager, Rachel, and that got us nothing but excuses and placing the blame on us as customers. After waiting 3 days to hear back from the owner, we finally got to talk to Micah and he told us he is going to do absolutely nothing. Seriously, take some responsibility and build some customer rapport. Along with the $200 that we spent there, you would expect some respect. In addition to that we WERE planning on buying another custom piece.

3. OVERPRICED:
The original piece that we were trying to have this custom piece blown after was $40. This is an amazing piece and we cannot find anything like it anywhere, this is why we went custom. For $100 more dollars, I don't feel unreasonable to say I expected MUCH more.

Re: “Old Father Inn

Excuse me for asking..but how is THIS venue considered "Central", when the Rivers Edge is labeled as "Northwest"? I've been in the area pretty much forever, but other more recent arrivals may be missing the boat on a fun time.

Re: “Alfie's Pub

Went there last weekend the drinks were cheap with good service. The pool was only 50 cents and the jukebox was 25 cents. My new go to bar.

Re: “Red Garter Saloon

The best bar that Tucson has to offer. Built on great drinks and pool tables this establishment has been around longer than most Tucsonan's can remember. Thanks to Matt,Tara,Jackie,Russ, and everyone else at The Garter the food and the atmosphere are truly top notch. My home away from home for many years and I still love the juke box. The best juke box in Tucson. Food,drink,or just a good time the Red Garter is the place to go!!!

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

What I liked about the dining and theatrical experience most was the humor. It's a great location and the food was good. No suggestions for improvements as it was all excellent! (Super Sleuth Award prize winner:)

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

i dont know how the actual experience is because we never actually went there, but we had tried to plan an event with a group of friends and had called to set it up for this weekend. once we found out that several of our friends would not be available we called back to cancel our reservations, within 2 hours of setting them mind you, and were told that we would be charged anyway. the person who we talked to was rude and insisted that all reservations are a final sale. that there are no refunds or cancelling allowed. i dont know what i would be refunded for, i havent received anything yet, but they think they are allowed to charge me over $400 because we need to cancel a reservation.

Re: “Fire + Spice

This is a great place to hear very good jazz. The performers are students and you will be stunned to find out how young they are when you hear their music. They are very polished and really know how to swing. The performances are in the outdoor patio by the pool which contains a fire pit. It's a great way to spend an evening.

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

Boondocks does an excellent job of promoting a large diversity of live music. One of the best venues in Tucson for the many genres covers.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

I enjoyed the entire experience. Everyone did an excellent job. Only suggestion would be to have more private tables and a little more elbow room. It's a beautiful location and very central.

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

I think they finally got the stench of cigarette smoke out of there. It took a few years. Not bad bar. Acoustics OK. Lot of room. Also have gotten rid of most of the trouble makers from the old days of Neon Prophet. Kitchen has surprisingly good fare. All in all I think I have to give it 5 stars.

RE: "The Desert Cadillacs"
Tucson's best classic rock band does it again with DANCIN' music from every genre! They added magic to the 11/11/11 grand opening! Tight harmonies, innovative arrangements, classic tunes and awesome instrumentals. I hear they play for private parties, special events, and weddings. When are they comin' back??!!! They're a true HIDDEN GEM in Tucson!!
