Listen Daily Star, we've gotta talk.

We're fine with you jinxing baseball teams (and we're cool about chatting baseball with you on Twitter), but we're drawing the line on this "food" thing you guys keep doing.

It was funny when y'all were into Subway, and it was getting a little old when you were celebrating Panda Express, but today's Pizza Hut article is just lame (plus, the photo is blurry as f—k). When there are countless restaurants around town doing great things and serving up great food, it's a disservice to keep throwing bones to the big, national places.

So we're taking it upon ourselves to look at local specials, from local restaurants — and if they're serving locally grown ingredients in their food, so much the better.

Take the Surly Wench Pub, for example. They recently opened up the Surly Wench Kitchen and expanded their menu beyond typical (if exceptionally tasty) pub fare, creating tasty dishes such as today's special, chicken mole tacos.

Yep, they're serving up two chicken mole tacos and mixed potatoes with spiced cucumbers for $6 — see that picture to the side there? Yeah, that looks tasty as HELL.

On top of that, the Wench is running happy hour specials all day 'til 9 p.m. And after then, whiskeys are $2.

It seems like that's only the tip of the Wench-berg, too: all of the herbs used in their dishes are grown in the Surly Wench Garden, and I have it on good authority from their kitchen manager that they're using local products whenever possible — those tortillas with the chicken mole tacos are from Anita Street Market, for instance.

So for a good time and some good eats, head to the Surly Wench Pub at 424 N. Fourth Ave. — they'll take care of you, Tucson.
