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.
