READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP: Blue Willow Restaurant, Bakery and Poster Gallery, 2616 N. Campbell Ave.

CLUE IN: Tucson has no lack of strenuous hikes, heart-in-your-mouth climbs, and endurance-testing slogs into the desert. But for those seeking a less arduous outdoor adventure, we recommend the Casbah Tea House, 628 N. Fourth Ave. Sink into oversize cushions under an immense Middle-Eastern style tent, and you might think you've rubbed a magic lamp and been transported into a sultan's palace. True, if you wish to be fanned you have to bring your own palm fronds and servants; but the tasty organic food more than makes up for this oversight. So next time your hiking buddy calls you at 4 a.m., turn off the ringer and enjoy an outdoor expedition of a more civilized sort.
