Re: “Best Chile Relleno

What is it about the new TW that just can't get the Clinton presidency facts correct? I mean, we all would like to forget about his time in office, but c'mon! This makes 2 for 2 with the Clinton/Mi Nidito mistakes. Shame on you TW.

Re: “Our Ink-Stained Heart

Thanks for the response Chelo!

And yes, I did read yesterday's announcement. It acknowledged the B of T insert being delayed, not the issue it was to be stuffed inside of. If you re-read my original post you will notice that I did not mention anything regarding the insert.

I was hoping to get my weekly NY Times crossword puzzle fix. I am patient enough to wait for the B of T in slaughtered tree form. Even if I change my mind about that, I have the option of viewing it online. Unfortunately I do not have that option regarding my crossword jones. It's good to know that the current issue will probably be there when I go to get one later today.

Thank you for the information. DC

Re: “Best Place to Get Something Framed

I'm afraid the winners are 100 percent reader decided, though we do encourage readers to support local business—in their Best Of voting and otherwise.

Re: “Our Ink-Stained Heart

Az/DC: The printer we used to print Best Of missed their deadline, and the papers are late because we were holding them until we got BoT to insert. Sadly, we're still waiting for them to arrive. We eventually had to send the papers out without Best Of. The papers should have started showing up in racks this morning.

We do have a small number of Best Ofs available at our office. Best Of will (I'm told) be inserted in next week's paper. We're disappointed and we know our readers are, too.

We posted this announcement on the Range yesterday:…

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: “Our Ink-Stained Heart

Why is there no print version available in the places I usually (and not usually) go to get one? I tried Bookmans on Grant, eegee's locations on Campbell & on Tucson Blvd. & the box y'all got at Speedway & Norris. (On the NE corner of Aloft's parking lot.) WTF? Are your distributors on strike?

One might assume this issue is so popular that it has disappeared from these areas already because of popular demand, until they notice several issues of last weeks issue (in all but one location) in the box.

Please respond. DC

Re: “Best Place to Get Something Framed

Michaels us a National Branded Big Box store. Is this not a local contest. Best of contest has become a big disappointment to all who vote and shop at local small businesses. Looking at winners it makes me sad that some of these people were picked when Gem and Mineral show is not a jeweler, it a event , best framing -Michael's should not be in mix. You should really only pick local shops.

Re: “Best Chile Relleno

Uh, President Bill Clinton ate at Mi Nidito in 1999, and sworn into his first term in 1993.

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 Jewelry

As someone with quite a bit of insight said, "It's kind of like voting for Tucson Meet Yourself for best restaurant!" And it's true! Everyone who has previously won has been a shop. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is an event. Reality is that someone with a shop works hard to keep that shop open for us year-round.
Not to denigrate the work it takes to organize a huge event like TGMS, but they are only in town for a certain time, then you have to wait for next year. Or go to the next gem show in another locale. Which kinda ignores the purpose of Best of Tucson. The shop-owners of Tucson deserve better!

Re: “Best Day Spa

I would just love to know how many of the readers who voted for mirival... Have actually been... Or know exactly where it is... Not a place you can just walk off the street to enter... We as consumers should be supporting the little local guys... Not CORPORATIONS... Isn't that what the weekly is all about... Highly dissapointed... I voted for greentoes...

Re: “Best Jewelry

I cannot believe that people picked Tucson Gem & Mineral show when they are not local. All the mom and pop stores and this is what they get, What a shame
