Pencil In the Beer Dinner and Head Down To the Co-op, It's Time To Eat Local

If your culinary guilty pleasures include big chain restaurants like Starbucks and Pizza Hut, get it out of your system now because from July 1-14, Food Conspiracy Co-op on Fourth Avenue is challenging Tucson to eat local.

That doesn't just mean hitting up locally owned restaurants, but also stocking the pantry with locally sourced food. So, to make that a little more feasible, the Co-op will be offering discounts on local foods, including Isabella’s Ice Cream, Not So Gringo Salsa, tamales from Tucson Tamale Co., and sandwiches, wraps, granola, brownies, salads, muffins, bagels, and green chili breakfast burritos from the Conspiracy Kitchen. Look for the details of the sales on Facebook and Twitter.

Dick Gase, Food Conspiracy Front End Manager and Floating Head in the Photo Above, is offering some help. Gase will be trying to eat 100% local during the challenge's two week period, and he'll be blogging his way through it on the Co-op's website.

To celebrate the halfway point, there will be a Beer Dinner on Sunday, July 7 at Dragoon Brewing, 1859 W. Grant Rd, catered by the Conspiracy Kitchen. The dinner is limited to 30 people and tickets are available at the Co-op for $45.

I think this is totally doable. Two weeks of eating nothing but Not So Gringo Salsa sounds like heaven to me.
