Persian Room Fine Dining in Tucson, AZ
 
My husband and I recently celebrated a closing with client friends at the Persian Room Fine Dining located on 9290 N Thornydale Road, Ste. 100, Tucson, AZ 85742  520-744-1414
I must admit that I'm a sucker for atmosphere.  I'm not one of those wild about entering one large noisy room with little or no privacy for eating.  Right away I liked that this one was set up in an L shape, and that there was plenty of decor and room dividers to help diners feel a little more intimate.
They had a friendly hostess at the door … (2 comments)

things to do in tucson: El Presidio Bed and Breakfast near Downtown Tucson, AZ - 04/15/16 02:41 AM

My husband and I were enchanted to visit the El Presidio Inn, Bed and Breakfast near downtown Tucson in early June. We had decided to share a "staycation" since I'm pretty busy at work, and this way we could get away and relax, while further discovering our own backyard.
  
It was immediately apparent why this B&B would belong to Trip Advisor's Hall of Fame.  Before we even arrived, we received this lovely email confirmation:  
Dear Rocco and Cara, Thank you very much for your 2-night reservation in the Gate House, arriving April 1st,Friday, and departing April 3rd.  I hope you will feel completely at … (2 comments)

The Largest "Snake" in Tucson

You all perhaps know of the ample presence of snakes in Tucson and the Arizona desert.  But have you seen the largest snake of all? 
Nearby Tucson residents can enjoy the experience of walking and bicycling though the innards of a 280 feet long diamondback rattlesnake...bridge. The snake is a pedestrian bridge over Broadway Boulevard.
In 1997, the concept for the design came from Tucson artist Simon Donovan.  It was completed in 2002.

The snake's eyes originally lit up at night, and the tail contains a motion sensor that triggers an amplified rattling sound -- perfect … (10 comments)

Dominicks Real Italian Restaurant in NW Tucson/Marana
I was happy to share a review of Dominicks Real Italian Restaurant on Yelp and thought, well, why not just share!  I love passing on good news.
http://www.yelp.com/biz/dominicks-real-italian-tucson?hrid=UK6l3SIH25uURFg-rJEDcw
Locally owned, Dominicks is proud of their store-made products and deserts, and I think it shows.  The place is almost always full, lunch is a busy time, and prices are competitive.  As a lover of most things Italian (after all, my Husband's name is Rocco Man - Q - So) we tend to gravitate towards a saucy restaurant!
Amazingly, we're not ones to order out pizza, … (3 comments)

Enjoying Agustin Kitchen in Tucson, AZ
I had the opportunity to visit Agustin Kitchen this past weekend - a place I've been planning to dine for a long, long time.
Home to the chef who won Iron Chef Tucson, like three times, I was curious to see if I would like the offered fare.  Their menu changes seasonally, so that's cool, and there were plenty of menu choices that weren't "standard" but also not scary like squid ink or sweetbreads or something.  (Yes, I watch lots of cooking shows)
We were greeted warmly and seated immediately, although we were early for … (3 comments)

Homemade Tortillas In Tucson, AZ

To share a little history, a tortilla is a thin flatbread made from corn or wheat flour. It is made with an unleavened, water based dough, which is then pressed and cooked. Tortillas are a staple ingredient in tacos, burritos, fajitas, and enchiladas.

Tucson's Mt. Lemmon in Winter 2014
With Tucson's dreamy weather this past week, it's hard to comprehend the frigid, snow-laden, chill-inducing weather going on in other parts of the country.  My sympathies to all of you!
Yesterday was my husband's birthday, and since it was in the 70's, we thought a picnic and hike up Mt. Lemmon might be really fun.

Mt. Lemmon is a fascinating place in winter months.  It really is true that on certain days,  you can be skiing at the summit, and then come down to swim in your Tucson-area pool later that afternoon.
