Noshing Around

New: Wild West Hot Sauce Company

The inspiration to open a hot-sauce store came to Dena and Alan Rupp while on a school field trip to Seaport Village in San Diego. The locally owned store, which sells mostly Arizona salsas and sauces, opened last week in Trail Dust Town, near the Pinnacle Peak Restaurant at 6541 E. Tanque Verde Road; 971-3663. The shop is open daily from 4:30 to 9 p.m.

New: My Big Fat Greek Restaurant

A second Tucson location opened two weeks ago at 7131 E. Broadway Blvd., at Kolb Road. The first restaurant opened in the Phoenix area, and there are now 11 in Arizona, with plans to expand into New Mexico, Texas and Nevada. The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m.; 722-6000.

Coming Soon: Local Harvest Marketplace

The green grocer on Speedway Boulevard, just east of Alvernon Way, will have a juice bar and sell local fruits and vegetables.


OK Corral, located at 7710 E Wrightstown Road, has closed.
