Cheap Thrills

ART TALK: Whether you're planning a trip to the Old World, have already been and have no idea what you did while you were there, or consider yourself doomed to spend the rest of your life scorched and landlocked, you can live vicariously through lecturer Jennie Powell as she presents a free slide lecture, Touring the Great Museums of Europe, at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, January 4, at the Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N. Main Ave. Call 624-2333 for information.

QUESTION AUTHORITY CONTEST: There's nothing we appreciate more than broad-based swipes at the powers that be, than encouraging our readers to take a sidelong glance at the unexamined life. So when this strange fax came through with the banner headline "Question Authority Poster Contest" plastered above a 1930s cartoon of a cop scooping a college graduate's brains into the garbage, we knew it was time to break out the Crayolas. There are no guidelines, no restrictions and entries will not be returned. They will, however, be posted on the Net, and cash prizes will be awarded (somewhere in the neighborhood of $50). Send a thematically relevant poster of any size, shape and material to: Question Authority, P.O. Box 1776, 2509 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson, Arizona 85719. If the ambiguity is too much, call 712-1937 for information. Deadline is March 15.

FOOD CONSPIRACY THEORY: Join Food Conspiracy Co-op Member Services Director, Robert Oser, to get the scoop on Fresh Herbs in Tucson Markets. He'll tell you where to buy, what's available, and how to use fresh (as opposed to dry) herbs for healthful cooking. The free Tucson Herbal Coalition lecture begins at 7:30 p.m. Monday, January 8, at the Zenith Center, 330 E. Seventh St. The newly formed Herbal Coalition offers monthly lectures on the history and practical uses of herbs native to the Southwest. Call 883-0377 for information.
