Those of you who love to find our lovingly hand-crafted issues of Tucson Weekly at your local, neighborhood Circle K will notice that you'll actually have a problem with that starting next week.
AZ Weekly is a free, Phoenix-based magazine that covers exactly what you'd expect: Phoenix events. Which, as I'm sure you're thinking, is exactly what denizens of Southern Arizona can't get enough of.
Furthermore, as Tucson Weekly editor Dan Gibson mentions in this week's "Editor's Note," AZ Weekly whores out their editorial coverage to the highest bidder—so if you're looking for objective entertainment coverage, you might want to take their articles with a grain of salt.
So what this means for you, the loyal Tucson Weekly reader, is that it might be just a bit harder for you to get your weekly, dead-tree fix of "Danehy," "The Skinny" and "Ask a Mexican!" But we've got a solution:
Heading to that page will take you to an interactive map we've set up to help you find issues of Tucson Weekly at our red boxes all over town — and while you're there, you may want to consider patronizing some of those establishments for supporting local journalism. It's a win for everyone involved!
Still, that leaves us the little matter of our issue with Circle K...and honestly, we figure we're not the only people in town who have issues with the corner store chain.
Thus, if you've got beef with Circle K, feel free to Tweet with the #CircleKProblems hashtag. We'll be doing so throughout the day, for as long as we damn well please.
Let it out, Tucson. We have:
Got 99 @tucsonweekly issues, but Circle K ain't got none. #CircleKProblems
