Don't Cry For Me Argentina

Every Wednesday night at Hacienda Del Sol's Grill or its patio-inspired Terraza, specially selected wines from the Mendoza wine region in Argentina will be $6 a glass. Add an Argentina sampler plate, and you just might feel like dancing the tango to the parking lot at 5601 N. Hacienda Del Sol Road; 529-3500.

Basil, Tomato and Garlic Festival

On Thursday, July 20, the Tubac Farmers' Market sets the stage for cooking demonstrations, organic produce, wine and cheese pairings at the Nob Hill Gourmet Market and live jazz provided by Joe Bourne and Matt Mitchell from 5 to 8 p.m., at exit 34 off Interstate 19. After exiting, go east to the Frontage Road, then north to Plaza de Anza (south of the Village of Tubac).

Lazy Saturday Wine Afternoon

Join Slow Food Tucson on Aug. 5 at 58 Degrees and Holding Co. (located at 5340 E. Broadway Blvd.) for a wine tasting and Mediterranean buffet featuring artisan cheese, roasted vegetables with hummus, and Moroccan-style chicken served with couscous, paired with French, Italian and Portuguese wine. Kathleen Carter, sommelier, will discuss the wines' origin and how to taste and pair wine. RSVP with a check payable to Slow Food Tucson. Mail to Barry Infuso, 7166 E. Chorro Circle, Tucson, AZ, 85715; for questions, call 290-1355. The cost is $25 members; $30 nonmembers.


Olivia's Courtyard Café on Broadway Boulevard and Abygail's Bakery and Café at St. Philip's Plaza recently closed. Both initially opened to positive reviews. Olivia's made delicious pastries and omelets, while Abygail's pies brought raves. What went wrong? An astute foodservice observer said that people should not open a restaurant just because they know how to cook, and more importantly, they should hire experienced help--not resentful family members. We hate to see promising entrepreneurs fail.
