No one loves Tucson or decides to visit here because there are good restaurants to eat at. That's a baseline for liking or visiting any city. Having fine cuisine is awesome and needed but people's affections for the Old Pueblo ARE also based on the "artsy, bohemian, arrested adolescence" of the city.
No one visits Portland, Austin, Kansas City, Philly, NYC, etc. for the sole reason of eating the food offered without taking into account any of the city's unique cultural elements.
Do you not understand that "KEEP TUCSON SHITTY" is meant to evoke your exact sentiment of "work to maintain the grit in Tucson's soul as the changes happen"? The phrasing maybe too colorful for you, but it riffs on "KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD", which is about supporting local businesses which contribute the unique culture and history of the area.
Your false dichotomy of progressives and SHIT heads, created out of ignorance or the need for copy, is pretty SHITTY. Oh, and as a former employee of the Grill, if I'm ever working at a precious little gastropub you come into, I will grind up cockroaches and mix them with my own SHIT and put them on your medium burger you send back because it's too pink. Stay SHITTY David.
I'm 12. What is this?
