Quick Bites


Southern Italy Wine Dinner. So you might not be able to travel the Southern coast of Italy whenever you want, but with this event at Maynard's Market & Kitchen, you'll get to try the area's food and wine—and really, what else do you need? There are three courses that include smoked eggplant, bluebeard durum cavatelli, grilled apricot and plenty of wine. 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24. 400 N. Toole Ave. $78. Purchase tickets online.

Sangria & Salsa Festival. Wait a minute, we just finished up with the Margarita Festival, and now we already have a sangria and salsa fest? Tucson really is great! Beat the heat by heading down to the Tucson Convention Center and trying the 35 different sangrias and assorted cocktails, beers, rum and tequila. Plus, there will be plenty of chips and salsa to boot. And if that's not enough, there's also plenty of salsa music too. 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25. 260 S. Church Ave. $25. Purchase tickets online.

Sabbar Shrine 2018 Corn Fest. What food festivals doesn't Tucson have?? Our local Sabbar Shrine Center is cooking up both a barbeque bonanza AND a corn fest. Either way, you'll be getting some good, hearty cooking for these summer afternoons. 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25. 450 S. Tucson Blvd.

'90s Bar Crawl. This is a throwback combined with something new as well. Since I'm assuming most of those reveling in '90s nostalgia were at most about 15 when the decade ended, you finally get to know what it was like to go to a bar in the '90s! Participating bars include Maloney's, Series19, Funky Monkey and more. A ticket gets you drink specials, photo booth use and access to the after party. Throw on your favorite tracksuit, bump some Big Beat, and get to partying. 5 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25. 213 N. Fourth Ave. From $15.

Chipotle Percentage Night. Listen, you and I both know you're going to be eating at Chipotle sometime soon anyhow. So why not use your burrito date for a good cause and support Tucson High Badger Volleyball? Tell the cashier you're supporting the cause to make sure that 33 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Tucson High School Girls Volleyball Booster Club. Now that's a burrito (or bowl) worth binging! 4 to 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 27. 1202 W. Irvington Road.

"A Seat at the Table" at The Coronet. This summer series is a five-course meal of some of the finest dishes to be found in Tucson: bruleed stone fruit, roasted snails, black truffle, Egyptian fava beans, hot chili lamb, pistachio orange biancomangiare, and so much more. Now that's class. Email sally@cafecoronet.com to book your seat. 7 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28. 402 E. Ninth St. $70.

Ladies Night at Cobra Arcade Bar. Peach, Samus, Bayonetta, Yuna: what do all these names have in common? (Other than the fact that you'd probably disappoint your parents by recognizing them.) They're all badass video game heroines! And Cobra Arcade Bar is celebrating ladies both digital and analog by giving out free tokens to ladies all night. And not just this Wednesday, but every Wednesday! Now all that money you're saving on gaming can go into game fuel (alcohol). 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29. 63 E. Congress. No cover charge. 21+.

Teacher Happy Hour at Dillinger Brewing. The teachers of the world could use a break, and luckily for them Dillinger Brewing Company is offering $4 pints and $10 growler fills. And as an added bonus, happy hour is more like happy hour-s, as this deal lasts all evening. 2 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30. 3895 N. Oracle Road.
