Been Missing Tucson

Various personal and work obligations kept me outside of Tucson almost as much as I was in Tucson through July and August. Therefore, I am very happy to be spending virtually the entire month of September in town.

Here are a few things I'm looking forward to doing now that I will be home for a while (barring anything unforeseen):

• Enjoying downtown. Thanks to a mix of old (Hotel Congress, the Rialto Theatre) and new (Playground, Scott and Co., etc.), downtown has become my favorite part of town. (This was not always the case, folks.) I know for sure I'll be spending some major time there in September—including the night of the TAMMIES show, at the Rialto on Sept. 5.

• Enjoying good Mexican food. It's a cliché to fawn over Tucson's Mexican food, I know, but I am fawning anyway. I'll be eating plenty of carne seca cheese crisps from El Charro Café, chile verde from Taco Giro, and Sonoran hot dogs from the van/cart in the Food City parking lot at 22nd Street and Country Club Road.

• Enjoying Reid Park. The weather is (maybe ... hopefully) starting to cool down, and I plan on spending plenty of time walking and jogging through the beautiful urban oasis that is Reid Park. After all, I need to work off the calories from those cheese crisps, chile verde plates and Sonoran dogs.

• Enjoying working with the folks at Weekly World Central. I will be spending plenty of time with my co-workers—including the awesome new interns who have started over the last two weeks. It's a busy time of year—and I am excited about it.

Ah, Tucson. It's good to be home.

  • Nine Years Later

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine years since those gunshots rang out on a clear Saturday morning in Tucson, taking six lives and forever changing many others. This week, associate editor Jeff Gardner writes about how the friends of the youngest victim of the shooting, 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, are honoring her in the year she would have graduated high school.
