Toby Keith will never have to worry packing seats on a Wednesday night. They can take a few bad months, and stay open. What about local joints that struggle to pay the bills, or give employees hours? Seems to me it's clear who is more deserving of an "alternative weekly's" time and space.
I appreciate that the Tucson Weekly is "writing more about the awesome things...as anyone", but that shouldn't mean that the publication should shrug and say "good enough". If anything, this community needs a stronger voice that advocates for local flavor. And the Tucson Weekly is in the position to be that strong voice; this review shows that this opportunity is squandered.
Out of all the awesome things people in this town are doing with food, you write about what amounts to a Applebees? Thank goodness you are supporting a multi-state restaurant chain. With a million dollar ad budget. If this was a serious alt weekly, you would not have wasted ink on this blow job.
