Daren F. from Redding reviewed their last visit on 3/16/2017 and their testimonial is:
Warren is first, simply a fantastic human being. Second, he is a phenomenal mechanic. I brought in my Toyota for regular maintenance, which he performed in about 75 minutes. He then proceeded to give me a great price plus told me that one of my tires had uneven wear which needed to be address immediately. Thoroughly satisfied with the service and will recommend him to anyone who wants their car repaired without issues, price gauging, or headaches. Warren is a great person who operates a fantastic business.

Tuxedo Den Redding

 

 

Springtime in Beautiful Redding California, I can just imagine all the hustle and buzz about weddings getting planned, and School Proms and Graduations Coming up soon! I  asked around about some Local places if I were to Need tuxedos and/or formal wear? Tuxedo Den on Hartnell Ave. Seems to be the place to go! Not only is the store Easy to find but the friendly and helpful staff made it a pleasant and welcoming visit. In meeting with the Shop owner Mr.Austin Benbrook,  He stated that the Business was family started and owned,

“My grandparents started Tuxedo Den in 1962, and I am trying to keep it alive.”

“What makes your business different,” I asked,

“We focus on the tuxedo and suit rentals with retail sales also available.  We want people to feel comfortable with their experience, and I find that if we treat our customers the way we would want to be treated, then we’re more likely to make new friends in the process!  We make it our responsibility to make the entire process from beginning to end as easy and Comfortable as possible for every customer we have the honor of being a part in their special Events. We also are trained tailors for any alterations, and we offer the largest selection of men’s formal wear at the absolute best prices in Redding!”  While talking more with Austin, He mentioned he had learned the Business from working and managing our stores in Redding, Eureka, and Sacramento.

“I learned from my father who learned from his father.”

Teaching Generations of Success, since 1962!

“Our number one service is Tuxedo and suit rentals, and we also carry and sell top of the line suits and tuxedos at very reasonable prices.” The Tuxedo Den is always known for running great specials, Austin mentioned a few right now that I almost couldn’t believe!

PROM- 50$ off full rental. 30$ off week of Prom

PLUS student receives entry to win a 55″4k Ultra HD

Smart t.v.!

WEDDINGS-  All weddings with at Least three complete rentals [Groom +3Groomsmen] Groom gets HIS rental FREE!

*BONUS* The other Members will receive a 50$ discount.

Tuxedo Den Originally Opened in Eureka California by Emil and Bernice Benbrook, Austin’s grandparents.  Over the course of the first 30 years, the family made it their goal to provide expert service in the formal wear business with a smile.  In that period they also managed to expand to over 15 different locations in Northern California.  They have downsized their market base to the original two locations, Eureka and Redding.  Austin stated the reason his Family decided to downsize,  “Was to be in our hometowns and to give our friends and neighbors the attention and detail they deserve!”  “We here at Tuxedo Den make our customer’s overall experience for their wedding, prom or any of their formal wear needs Convenient and Relaxing, all while aiming to make life-long friends in the process.”

World Famous Radio Zoo Show coming to Woody’s Brewery

 CHRIS MIKE & THE ZOO SHOW

With humble beginnings, starting each morning before the sun rose into the sky – in a little, vermin infested, old, rickety building, tucked away on Main Street in Woodland, California – Chris Collins, along with his partner, Mike Reynolds, created entertainment and radio magic.  From this shoe-box of a studio, sitting atop a bank, next-door to the neighborhood watering hole, Collins and Reynolds molded a high-schooler, a local barfly, the over-night FM 102 jock, an auto part salesmen, and rounding out this motley crew – the only woman on the show – a voice talent from LA; into one of the most popular and dynamic morning radio shows to ever hit the Northern California air-waves.themorning-zoo

The public was totally caught unaware as, Chris Collins, the Ringmaster of this band of Zoo critters, pulled crank bits and played pranks on their unsuspecting public. Much beloved bits like: Toss Your Boss and Burn Your Buns, became the bread and butter that had their audience eating out of their hands and craving for more. And Collins and Reynolds delivered them more; by bringing in star guests, like Richard Simmons, or musical legends, such as the Jackson Five – into the homes and lives of their avid listeners.

The Morning Zoo reigned supreme from 1983 until 1992. A host of characters came and went from the studios that started in Woodland and ended up near the fabled – Howe About Arden area of Sacramento. The characters, bits, guests and artists were interchangeable, but the mainstays: Chris Collins and Mike Reynolds stayed and became house-hold names and etched their names into Sacramento Radio history; where they have remained legends to this day.

But their story hasn’t ended; in 2010, Chris Collins and Mike Reynolds, reached out to founding members of the Zoo – Robbie Lipelt and Gary Moore; and also Killer Bee, who joined the madness in 1987; to reunite the Zoo. Helping to bring the reunion together was, Mark McGee, the Program Director of several Chico based radio stations, who lent his support and the studios for the newly formed Chris Mike Zoo show.

Recording began in January of 2010 and has continued to this very day. Through the help of technology, determination, grit, character and insanity – the Chris Mike Zoo show is being heard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via the Internet or through our free cell phone Apps. The show is a worldwide based Entertainment entity. Our new numbers show a      steady increase of the variety of countries, ethnic groups and races that are becoming loyal Chris Mike Zoo fans. Comedy is universal and laughter is the commodity we deal in.

Woody’s Brewing Company to host Chris Mike Zoo show

Woody’s Brewing Co to host Chris Mike Zoo show

In 1983, Chris Collins, along with partner, Mike Reynolds, and a wacky cast of characters created entertainment and radio magic in Northern California that has now extended to a worldwide audience. The Chris Mike Zoo show has captured the imagination of a world-wide audience due to their insane abilities to take perfectly mundane news stories, from around the globe; throw them in the Zoo blender and serve up an irreverent, and often times, off-colored look – at what goes on in our great, big ball of a planet. If you’re tired of the same-ole, same-ole, drop by for a few laughs, great food and even better Brew at Woody’s Brewery. Chances are you might have a wonderful time, but the Chris Mike Zoo show knows, you’ll bust a rib laughing. Woody’s Brewing Company Presents: 1257 Oregon Street Redding, CA 96001 530-768-1034

Famous for hits like “tell it like it is,” “Everybody plays the fool,” and SO much more Beautiful, and soul moving Songs.
Aaron Neville’s Christmas Celebration is at once familiar yet progressive, traditional, prayerful, heartfelt, fun, and sexy.

Redding, CA 96001

We promise: Our programs will be the finest — clean and wholesome — chosen for the entertainment of the entire family — worthy of your good will and loyal support.
Entering the foyer one’s gaze is immediately caught and held by a vast expanse of a mirror, indirect lighting flooding it in a subtle manner; one’s foot sinks in the thick carpet of green with accents of rust, tan, and orange. The ceiling is indeed splendid; a Byzantine grandeur is gone modernistic; a score of blending colors worked into a beautiful whole.
Parking for Cascade Theatre events can be tricky due to the small area, and limited space to Park for vehicles. I know Myself Personally from experience, I have learned that arriving a few minutes early to the event, assures me Convenient Parking.

This is an actual Statement from their site online;
Please use either of the FREE PARKING lots nearby the theater. One is a two level lot located on the corner of Placer & California Streets, and the other located behind the theater on the corner of Sacramento and Pine Streets. PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY BANK PARKING LOTS or STREET PARKING.
