Head Down to Tucson Meet Yourself

Why don't they rename it to Tucson Eat Yourself?

It's been too long since I attended Tucson Meet Yourself.

I attended Tucson Meet Yourself for the first time when I was a sophomore at Tucson High School. I remember my first time at TMY was a bit overwhelming and a culture shock. I never realized how much diversity and food was in Tucson. Today's experience was no different. The festivities started at 10 a.m. and it didn't talk long to get busy. There was a line at almost every food stand, and there's something for every foodie.

For some reason my family didn't like going downtown or attending these kinds of events. My mother and I met for lunch today. She got some tasty fried rice from LAO, and I finally tried Frankie's for the first time. During lunch I asked my mom why didn't she ever take me and my sister to TMY and she replied with, "now you're old enough to appreciate it. You're welcome."

My biggest piece of advice to you is to bring bottled water, pop and sun screen. I paid $3 for a bottle soda, but it's going to a good cause. I know better for the rest of the weekend.

El Presidio Park,  160 W Alameda St.

Jacome Plaza (Joel D. Valdez Main Library), 101 N Stone Ave.
