Thai One On

Bangkok Café opened last week at the former Cali Restaurant (previously Kirin Restaurant) location at 2511 E. Speedway Blvd. Owned by local businessman Adej Chotichuti, Bangkok Café specializes in traditional Thai cuisine and spirits for international and American palates. They're open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 323-6555.

Highs and Loews

From 5 p.m. every Thursday, the Cascade Lounge at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort offers women wearing high heels a discount. Just say you're wearing 4-inch heels, and get $4 off your drink. I recently read an article about a stripper in Las Vegas who wore 7.5-inch heels ... I wonder if she would get money back. For the rest of us, there are $5 cocktails and any three tapas for $9, plus live music and occasional live broadcasts by Star 97.5, at 7000 N. Resort Drive; 299-2020.

November's Fish Fry

You gotta love someone who takes time to write a sincere note about her employer and the best fish fry in Tucson. The 2-year-old November Bar 'n' Grill--owned by Rosalinda M. Largent, aka BeBe--serves an all-you-can-eat Friday fish fry with coleslaw, fries and tartar sauce available from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for $5.99 at 4001 N. Romero Road; 407-9622.

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse

Coming sooner than later to Paloma Village Center (diagonally across from La Encantada at Skyline Drive and Campbell Avenue), the upscale chain debuts in mid- to late August. We drove by recently and can testify that work has begun at the location.

Seeing the Light

According to research analysts at Mintel International Group, beers that are low in calories or carbohydrates accounted for 45 percent of the U.S. beer market in 2003, racking up sales of $40 billion. Light beer sales are set to surpass regular beer in 2005.
