Re: “Pete and Mac's

Only gave 1 star because giving 0 was not an option.

We had a family gathering recently and since our cat needed thyroid medicine administered twice daily, we decided to board her for the first time since we've lived in the Phoenix area. We elected to use Pete & Macs in Avondale because they were a recommended provider through my husband's office.

Our experience with Pete & Mac's has been an ongoing nightmare. I can truly say I've never dealt with a business so thoroughly and unapologetically incompetent as P&M. It's so over the top that it would almost be like a bad restaurant or movie you love to hate - if it wasn't for the fact that my cat's health was at stake and, in this case, permanently damaged.
So where to start.

There are some more minor issues that bothered me, such as not being able to spell out names correctly after we filled out multiple forms or charging us for a photo disc but then not providing one because they didn't have enough material to make one during nine days of boarding. That was strange to us, and after several phone calls and several weeks, that money was finally refunded.
However, the biggest issue was that when we returned from our trip, our cat was permanently blind.

We had called numerous times while away and were assured that the cat was doing fine. It was obvious from her behavior upon pick-up and her abnormally large pupils that something was amiss. Her behavior was distraught and she didn't seem to recognize us. We rushed her to the vet to find that she had retinal detachment and would never see again. Had we heard about this at the time it occurred, some form of medical intervention might have been possible. We'll never know.

We immediately sought the records but they gave many reasons to not turn them over including claiming that our cat had never been there and they had no record of her or of us - despite the receipts, account numbers and charges that all left a paper trail My vet called and couldn't obtain records either. Two weeks later, we finally received records with minimal information.

The resistance to communicating with us leads us to wonder if they have something to hide; at first our suspicion was that a tranquilizer had been administered without permission, but when the stupor never wore off, that seemed less likely. In retrospect, incompetence in care and inattention to the cats well-being most likely were all that transpired. Still, a nagging thought lingers that, as the vet suggested, retinal blindness often results from facial injuries (being struck, falling, etc.).

The worst part about all of this is that we will never know what happened or what could have been done - again, because of the horrible communication during and after the whole experience.
We're still stunned that they wouldn't notice such a big change physical and behavioral in an animal in their care - and that they wouldn't act to care for her or even inform us of what was happening. How little attention could they have been paying to not at least notice she was distressed?

Our previously spunky, independent cat is now hesitant, needy and trying to learn her way around the apartment by sound and scent. At times she is inconsolable.

We just wanted to share the word about our experience and I would ask anyone who cares about their pet to think very, very seriously before bringing their animal anywhere near this place for the sake of their pets and for the mental and emotional health of the owners.

Re: “Boardwalk Square Shopping Center

Plauged by Skate Boarders and Drug Dealers in the evenings. No Security to prevent it. Police follow people around the parking lot in their cars after dark, hoping for a reason to harass you but do nothing to drive away the Drugdealers, Panhandlers, or Skaters.

Re: “Chop Tops Hair Company

BEWARE!!!! Less than Two Weeks before my wedding they told me they couldn’t do my hair or my bridesmaids hair.... and they did it through an EMAIL!!!
Now--about a week before my wedding --- After I had already spending more than $200 on my pre wedding appointments--
NOW after all that time I spent discussion and emailing the styles about what was suppose to happen on the day of the wedding day...Well --IT”S ALL DOWN THE DRAIN...NOW I have to find someone else to do the wedding hair and makeup... did I mention they cancelled it through EMAIL!
I thought I had a verb agreement with them but that didn’t matter, we even narrowed down a time around 9- or 9:30. I even had another appointment scheduled with them the Monday before my wedding.
If the deposit was so important to them-- then WHY --did they not ask for the deposit during the more an five hours I had spent there during the two separate pre wedding appointments?
Did they get it then? NO!!!....did they hand me paperwork to fill out while I was there ? NO!! They sent it...two weeks before the wedding. Now less than 10 days before my wedding I have to find another hair dresser--I have never been so OUTRAGED! If you are bride beware. They promise a lot take your pre wedding money and but don’t deliver in the end!!!!!

Re: “Sherlock's Underground Coffeehouse & Pub

Nobody's Bidnis wants to thank all of our friends that came out and joined us at Sherlock's Underground last night. We had a great time! I just wanted to give a well deserved shout out to Bill, the owner of Sherlock's. It's located in Liberty, MO at 291 and Brown street next to Price Chopper and Sutherland's Lumber. He's taken this hole in the wall, made it into a BEAUTIFUL place with a GREAT atmosphere and , now, he's recently partnered with Big Willie who's a BAD-ASS back in the kitchen making some of the BEST smoked meats and BBQ I've EVER tasted! Those who know me know I'm a foodie and I don't give high praise easily, especially for BBQ...but WOW! (Wille, are you married? ;-) )

After the first smoked and perfectly seasoned drummie I wanted to sit out and eat all night!! I made sure to order extra to take home and I'm just counting the minutes until lunchtime so I can tear into it.....yum! Other friends tried their smoked turkey sandwich and the "Big Willie" which consisted of TWO buns, pulled pork, beans (to die for) and slaw and both got RAVE reviews. To make it even better..the prices were VERY reasonable. All I can say is Big Willie sure knows how to give out the big "O" when it comes to BBQ! (I'm serious Willie-call me! ;-O )

Sherlock's = Great atmosphere, Hot Blues and FANTASTIC food!! A home run combo in my book. BTW....Bill also takes care of his smokers with a really nice patio with a warm, enclosed area for the winter time. Thanks again Bill for a great evening! You're doing EVERYTHING right. North of the river, it's THE place to go!

Re: “Uptown Arts Bar

This is gem of a spot in a reviving neighborhood. This bar features a wide selection of drinks including an expansive list of cocktails. The food is top-rate and they spare no expense on ingredients from the chips & salsa to the grilled paninis and their specialty pizzas on artisan flat-bread. The back of the club is a wonderful, intimate space used for music, poetry, comedy and just about any other kind of performing art there is. There is a huge emphasis on promoting local talented artists (including the art hanging on the walls). They also have an upstairs bar available for events and the balcony allows you to enjoy a smoke without missing out on the music.

Re: “Rick West Theater

So did Rick write the "Best show in town. Rick rocks!" review? Five stars, you can't be serious. He has always been a wanna be and will always be one. He knows nothing about entertaining and tries to convince others that he has a great career. He has broken all chances of ever working with the upper quality musicians and entertainers and now tries to find inexperienced people who don't know him and convince them he is someone great who is about to make it really big. A great example of no talent.

Re: “Rick West Theater

I know a few people who did work at the Rick West theater and were promised to be paid but never were. He has a long list of this occuring, from wait staff to contracters who all did the work and were never paid. He always wants something for free with the promise that great things will come if they wait but he is so terrible at buisness it never does. He also is a pervert so there's that too.

Re: “Rick West Theater

Might I also add no one I know who has dealt with Rick West has any good to say about him. Local country legends and folks in Branson don't know him, and want to keep it that way.
If he was so damn talented he'd made it already instead of trying to "Get the show off the ground" for the last 5-6 years.

Re: “Rick West Theater

This is a terrible thing and should not even be considered entertainment.
This man is shady and a snake, and has no right telling other musicians how to play.
I earned a CMA award for top musicians and will never work with this man.
