Is Arizona considered Midwest?


Recommended Posts

I love Tucson, but the heat is a deal-breaker for me. I've stayed twice at the Arizona Inn, and had a fabulous meal at the Cafe Terra Cotta several years ago. I see at their web site that they had a big fire on July 5, and will be re-opening next month or so. They are participating in the Tucson Culinary Festival this weekend, but the TCF web site (www.tucsonculinaryfestival.com) is down, so you'll just gave to Google it.

 

One thing missing from Jaymes' wonderfully informative post is that Tucson has spectacular lightning storms. There is even a lightning observatory there. Paul McCartney has a home there, too.

 

I also enjoyed our side trip up into Lemmon Canyon, which is the site of lots of Wild West movies like "How the West Was Won." The hills are covered with those huge, old saguaros. Very beautiful indeed. We took a tram tour. It was lovely, informative, and entertaining.

I'll be in Pheonix all next week. I expect I'll spend most of my time cooped up in extremely long presentations, but is there anywhere I ought to go to eat?   Um...anyone?

I was taken to a bistro (name escapes me) attached to a wine store called the Rum Runner in October 2003. Good wine list, and I had a very good rib eye with great mashed potatoes. Actually the whole

Okay. All booked except for the car rental. I'll fly into Phoenix, pick up a car and drive to the Ventana Canyon in Tucson. I figure a two hour drive through a landscape I've never seen before. A

Lots of lightning and Paul McCartney? I give 20 to 1 that Paul is the next Beatle to go.

Twenty years ago, nobody would have taken the bet Ringo would be the last to go...

Thanks, everyone.

 

The Rose & Crown is a fake old British pub (est. 2007), but is in a genuine old 1900 house, so actually looks convincingly like a British country pub.

 

Bars have sign on door, Firearms Not Allowed. Most of them, anyway. The others, I guess, are like Saturday night Tombstone, 1892.

I think AZ is an open carry state...

 

heh, I was playing poker at a casino in West Virginia the other week and it came out that (the pretext for this would take too long to go into) half the table was concealed carrying. Probably a good thing that no one was caught slipping cards up their sleeves. :)

should I guess you found this place the same way I did? Pizzeria Bianco too packed or too full?

 

I also went to Bianco's sandwich place - which was pretty good. I thought I posted about it?
