Another "Where is this?" contest!

Day #2
With just one guess so far it's clear that I need to provide a little more info to help you all identify "Where is this?"  OK - this mystery place is south of Prince, east of Campbell, and north of Grant. Post questions for me and I will do my best to answer them! Good luck.

OK, contestants, start your engines! It's another "Where is this?" contest. Frequent visitors to this site know that the first person to identify this location wins a "fabulous" TDP t-shirt. I am looking forward to your guesses and good luck!

Throwback Thursday ~ Tucson 3 years ago

The outdoor concerts at Udall Park featuring the Arizona Symphonic Winds are wonderful! You can enjoy one for the next three Saturdays at 7pm.  Free!

Here's the post from 2012:
Throughout the year the Arizona Symphonic Winds (an amazing volunteer group of musicians) perform concerts around the area. For their summer Saturday night "Concert Under the Stars" series they play in Udall Park. Here is a photo of music lovers settling in to enjoy the performance.

Tucson's Wild West History ~

Tucson's rich Wild West history is still evident in the abundant selection of steakhouses around town. El Corral is a very popular dining spot with residents, snowbirds, and tourists.  And it has a really great neon sign!

Tucson Dog Lovers are Everywhere!

Not only is this driver sporting a Dachshund license plate, do check out their decal, too - "Get Low!"

Tucson's European flair ~

One of the many things I loved about living in New York was the abundance of flower sellers. Every few blocks you will pass flowers displayed in buckets outside of greengrocers. Here in Tucson one of the nicest place to find flowers and lovely gift plants is Trader Joe's. All year round they offer flowers, plants, and herbs to brighten your day.

Blue skies as far as you can see ~

If you are in elementary school I bet your list of things you need to have fun is pretty short - a field to run around on, a basketball court to practice your hoop shot, a batting cage, and a jumping castle. And picnic food, of course! My neighborhood grade school hosted a play day for kids with all of those fun things. Looks like the sky goes on forever....

French Tucson ~

Tucson has a vibrant Francophone and Francophile community and they can gather each month to enjoy a French film hosted by the Alliance Francaise Tucson. The Alliance is a nonprofit organization that teaches classes, conducts conversation sessions/practice, and hosts special events to promote French culture in Tucson. The films run the gamut from comedy to drama and there is always a session afterward where attendees can talk about the film (in French and in English).
