Tucson Originals Reaches Out

Tucson's Krispy Kreme locations closed last week. If you are a former Krispy Kreme employee who's looking for another job, contact Mitch Levy, owner of Cuvee World Bistro and vice president of Tucson Originals, an organization comprised of local independent restaurants that gives back to the community. Call 881-7577 or check the Web site www. tucsonoriginals.com for job opportunities.


Coming Soon: The Auld Dubliner

Opening soon, Tucson's Auld Dubliner is No. 4 in a budding chain of authentic Irish pubs owned and operated by a team of young entre-pub-neurs. The interior was built in Ireland and imported to 800 E. University Blvd. The menu will feature appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, Irish fare and entrées like lamb chops, steak and salmon, to go along with imported beers and a full bar.

Closed: Nonie

Last week, Nonie closed again. In March 2005, long-time owners Chris and Suzi Leonard sold Nonie to two Sonoran shrimp farmers who sold it to Mike Dixon and Vivian Stanchfield in November 2005. That's just too much turnover in so little time. Though Nonie sported a recent new sign, its menu was muddled. Maybe the second and third owners relied on Nonie's popularity and didn't try hard enough? Maybe there can only be one Nonie because part of the charm was the people who owned it? Maybe the next occupant has to find their own niche, name and really do their homework?


60 Years of Tradition

Macayo's will give away a three-day cruise for two, including airfare, to the person who has the most memorable moment that took place at a Macayo's restaurant during its 60 years in business. The call for entries runs until Oct. 10. To submit a story, go to any Macayo's location (7360 N. Oracle Road and 7040 E. Broadway Blvd.) or www.macayo.com. The winner will be announced Oct. 19 at a VIP event in Phoenix.
