Quick Bites: Wine Sounds Just Fine

Posted By on Wed, Aug 23, 2017 at 1:41 PM

Beat the Heat Sangria & Salsa Festival. If you’re wondering what more a Southern Arizona resident could really ask for besides salsa and sangria, get this: the event is held in an ice hockey rink, with full blast AC. Not to mention there will be paella, empanadas, artisan vendors and live Spanish guitar. Parents who have been spending weekends buying back-to-school supplies deserve a treat, summer lovers watching their favorite season fade away deserve a treat, and, well, even if you don’t deserve a treat, you’re probably going to want to treat yourself anyway. 3 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26. Tucson Convention Center, 260 S Church Ave. $45.

Rose Wine Pairings Dinner. Wildflower American Cuisine hosts this four-courser with food prepared by Executive Chef Kevin Handt and wine pairings selected by Regan Jasper.

Wildflower American Cuisine, 7037 N. Oracle Road. $50.
