I was recently in town for a week of work and ate at Delectables many times. It was perfect. The food was fresh, the wine was exceptional, the service was knowledgeable and friendly. I took friends there for Easter Brunch and it was impeccable. I can't wait to go there again!
I am seeing posts online questioning whether SAAF is willing to associate itself with groups that are primarily LGBT because they have worked to make AIDS services approachable to the rest of the communities by showing that SAAF & AIDS are NOT just Gay issues... How this is handled (or not handled) will determine the health, safety and education of many community members that rely on the Wingspan services... Very hard to absorb and make things "just keep working". The volunteer aspect needs to be seriously organized to make it work. Space to exist is another issue altogether. Fundraising really has been invisible for a long time. I hope something good emerges from this change. I understand why it is happening but am sad to see it go.
She is beautiful and it is a pleasure to see how healthy she appears...
HOWEVER... There is a RABIES NOTICE out for Santa Cruz County... be aware of wildlife spending too much time in your yard!!
Tempest DuJour's Retro Game Night is a great way to survive summer in Tucson... and have a good time doing it!
Delectables has been so many things to me over the years... the place to go for coffee... the first place I had quiche... the place I heard lots of good music... the place I learned about all kinds of cheeses... the place local artists I knew sold their wares... the place I took refuge during Street Fair... the place I met more than one girlfriend... the place I found my wife! With a list like that I can only say that Delectables is still great after 40 years and still putting good stuff out for people to enjoy!!
Francisca was the wife of Lloyd... Lloyd's on 6th Street kept many of us fed through our years at the UA. Charlotte, the waitress, was there over 30 years. I had a couple other friends who helped serving the lunch rush... there was usually a line... and we cried when Lloyd closed the doors. The best enchiladas ever.
Thank you for this well written, wonderful article. I have been trying to explain to someone from somewhere else about the Arizona before and after The Copper Strike. If you were anglo and stood with the miners you were branded a communist. I was proud to stand with people who were working together, so long and hard, to save their way of life. Arizona has never been the same.
And did not occur as a terrorist outsider attack but from an American with an anger management problem bad enough that they threw him out of the Navy. Why did he have the weapons to easily get in there and do this??? He had mental health issues that were know.
