this restaurant sounds interesting. but I have found some restaurants use herbs or spices to cover the flavor or taste of old food. This restaurant certainly doesn't sound like that kind. I need to try it soon.
no, info on the Monaco couldn't be found.
My mouth is watering after reading that column!
How about the Monaco inn off Wilmot did they get a mention
I love this place. It is one of the places I take out of town visitors.
Way to go Ishmael!!! I'll have to finally stop in
Can you post the application document?
Congrats for being the only local news organization to report on this before the fact. When I heard the news today, I knew I'd read about this someplace recently.
Mrs. Banks was my 4th grade teacher, honorable people the Banks.
Don is currently running a GoFundMe campaign to help support the expansion of his bakery as well as the educational and community oriented aspects of his operations.
Very well deserved! Don Guerra is one of the many, many things that makes this city great. Extraordinary bread. Thank you!
Jack's is a part of the book.
Lead with a picture of Jack's + no mention in the article? When Jack + his wife ran the place it was without doubt the BEST barbecue in several states. Your BEST OF winners wouldn't hold a candle to them. Moved to Texas to retire + I presume moved on to the big Q in the sky by now. Every time I drive by there , I miss them. Damn now my mouth is watering just from the memory! Will try the new Dickey's but prepared to be dissapointed.
BigMatt - the published book is actually 146 pages long not including the index etc. 80 pages was the manuscript.
Dean Short and Hugh Downs "owned" the food business in Tucson and were good friends. High owned the Cactus Corp. which included the Cactus Drive In and the Cactus Bowl.
$22 for an 80 page book? I'll wait for the paperback version. Oh wait, this is the paperback version! I'll find it in a few years at Goodwill. It's not like any of these restaurants will be re-opening anytime soon.
Just what we need, a book about old,closed restaurants. Spot on for Rita!
That's great Rita!
Tucson City Council and the Mayor can certainly help this to move forward passing the changes to the urban agriculture code on December 8th. These changes have been well researched, the public has been involved and it is way beyond time for this to finally pass. How can Tucson say it wants this designation and then not allow more residents to provide themselves with food and eggs?
The Tucson City Council can support this effort by adopting the extremely sensible and well-thought-out amendments to the urban agriculture ordinances next Tuesday.
