Eye popping hopper!

Can you imagine a grasshopper that is any more vibrant than this fellow? He is practically neon!

Throwback - WAY BACK - Thursday!

Here's a post from Oct 8, 2009 that shows a vintage poster from the 1800's advertising "An Arizona Cowboy," playing in the the Big Tent Theatre. All good fun at Tucson's beloved Trail Dust Town, the little themed western town where you can stroll around, sit in the charming gazebo, and maybe see a shoot out gunfight! Some things stay the same - happily!

Looks like the all American Cowboy hero is about to save the damsel in distress on her runaway horse. This poster advertises "An American Cowboy, a Play of the Golden West." Perhaps this is a replica of a real traveling play poster or perhaps this is just part of the themed ambiance at Trail Dust Town.

Expecting E.T. to phone home?

I have absolutely no idea what I was looking at here! Yes, it's obviously some kind of antenna but it is like nothing I have ever seen. And it is not mounted on a police vehicle -- it is affixed to a Lincoln Town Car! Anyone want to guess what the driver is listening to? Sounds from space?

Tucson's newest hot Hop Spot!

If you love beer there is a new place in town that you must try! It's Tucson Hop Shop tucked into the Metal Arts Village at Dodge near Ft Lowell. Dave Zugerman (top photo with one of the shop's beer masters) has created a space with a classic indoor bar as well as an outdoor beer garden.

Dog friendly & kid friendly, this is a wonderful place to while away a few hours! And you will learn a LOT about their custom brews. They are passionate about their creations and are happy to talk to you about the nuances of taste. Cheers!
