Sky Bar

The owner of Brooklyn Pizza Company is turning the now-defunct North on 4th at 536 N. Fourth Ave. into an astronomy-themed bar called Sky Bar. Owner Tony Vaccaro said the bar will feature skylights, glass garage doors and a telescope delivering deep-space images to a monitor. The place will also feature projectors throwing images from planetarium software, a full bar and Brooklyn Pizza. Vaccaro said he hopes to have it open by Halloween.


Tucson Meet Yourself

Eat your way around the world at the annual Tucson Meet Yourself festival, from Friday, Oct. 9, through Sunday, Oct. 11, at El Presidio Park (160 W. Alameda St.) and the nearby Jacomé Plaza in front of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library (101 N. Stone Ave.). About 40 ethnic food booths will be featured, along with educational and entertaining exhibits and acts. New to the festival this year is food by the Ghanaian Association of Tucson, the Central Asian Ahiskan Association, and Trinidad and Tobegan Sweets and Desserts. You'll also want to be there when chef Albert Hall of Acacia at St. Philip's takes on chef Ryan Clark of the Dish for the title of TMY Iron Chef at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 10. Admission is free, but don't forget to drop a donation in one of the designated soup pots to keep this gem of a festival going. Visit www.tucsonmeetyourself.org for more information.


Jewish Food Festival

The Tucson Jewish Food Festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 25, at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park (3482 E. River Road). More than a dozen of our town's finest restaurants will handle the food, while amateur contestants battle to make the best stuffed cabbage, challah, chopped liver, Sephardic dish, noodle kugel and strudel. Attendees will also find Irish and Israeli dancers, live music, DJs and other live entertainment. Visit www.jewishfoodfestival.com for more information.


Wine and Beer

The economy may be recovering, but we're still stuck in cheapo mode here at Noshing. With this in mind, we propose Plaza Liquors' (2642 N. Campbell Ave.) free wine-tastings from 4 to 6 p.m., every Wednesday; and free beer-tastings from 4 to 6 p.m., most Thursdays. Manager Emilie Thomson suggests calling the store at 327-0452 to check what libations will be featured.
