Monkey Around

What more could you ask for? You can get a bottle of wine and a plate of French and English artisan cheeses for $20 on Tuesday and Wednesday during July and August at the Monkey Box, 100 N. Stone Ave.; 623-3500.


Gift Certificate Rush

Mark your calendars for noon on July 21 when Tucson Originals offers a limited number of gift certificates from 30 independent restaurants. The last time this happened, the server jammed, and chaos ran amuck before Tucson Originals sold out faster than microwave popcorn. The draw is that you pay $15 but can order $25 worth of food. It all happens at

www.tucsonoriginals.com .
