Quick Bites 


SAVOR Southern Arizona Food & Wine Festival. We all know Tucson has an expansive, delicious and unique food history, but why just talk about it when you can taste it? The SAVOR Southern Arizona Food & Wine Festival at the Tucson Botanical Gardens combines everything you could hope for: heritage foods and ingredients, local wines, local craft beers, and samples from our city's best restaurants. Come hungry, leave full (in every sense). 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2. 2150 N. Alvernon Way. $79.

Expecto Bar Crawl. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is coming to Tucson, so you know what that means: drink! This bar crawl includes drink specials during the crawl, no cover at participating locations, and the first 50 guests get a commemorative koozie. Participating locations include the Playground Bar & Lounge and more. Just one question: Is it considered appropriation if you didn't actually read the books? 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2. 278 E. Congress St. $10 to $20. 21+
