Kingfisher is piling Tucson residents into the family station wagon for its 24th annual Kingfisher Road Trip, which features signature food and drinks from different U.S. regions. Today kicks off the fourth leg of the road trip, which takes guests “Back East” on a culinary journey that runs through Aug. 3.

If your Southwest sensibilities are hesitant about jumping right into a plate of lobster, ease your taste buds east with an appetizer, like the tempura fried soft shell crab, with sticky rice, Napa cabbage slaw and Kung Pao sauce ($13).

Once you are ready for the Maine course, you can dive into several options, including grilled sea scallops over tomato-olive-caper orzo with artichoke-spinach pesto and roasted green beans ($27).

To satisfy your sweet tooth, dig into the apple-cranberry crumb cake or the “Wicked Good” ice cream sandwich for dessert ($8 and $7.50).

The whole experience can be complemented by the drinks offered at the Back East event, like the Fancy Basil Rickey, with Bombay Sapphire, orange juice, orange, basil, lime, simple syrup and soda, all on the rocks, so that you can feel like you’re at Plymouth Rock yourself ($10.50).
