Giving Back

Looks Bar and Grill (in the former Gus & Andy's location at 2000 N. Oracle Road) will feed 200 people during a complimentary Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings at 2, 4 and 6 p.m. Looks is the first restaurant/sports bar endeavor for the Pavon and Zanzucchi families, who also own Curves Cabaret and Raiders Reef Exotic Dancing.

Ocean View

According to John and Sharon Davis, owners of the newly opened Paco's Tropical Café, theirs is the only place in Tucson with beachside seating and an ocean view. Former owners of La Fuente, the Davises wanted to exercise their playful let's-only-be-open-for-breakfast-and-lunch side. Monday through Saturday, breakfast is served from 6-11 a.m., with lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Sunday brunch is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 5819 N. Oracle Road (formerly Bray's), 293-0137.

Coming Soon

Around mid-January 2005, Kingfisher will open Bluefin Seafood Bistro in the former Millie's Pancake Haus at the Casa Adobes Plaza, on the southwest corner of Ina and Oracle roads.
