Tucson - Home of the World's Biggest Chianti Bottle

This is definitely a Tucson landmark ~ a 35' tall cement wine bottle! Commissioned in the 1970's, the concrete and rebar bottle was created by artist Michael Kautza and was originally designed to advertise an Italian restaurant. Cool fact - it's stoppered with a real cork!

The Boondocks Lounge with its remarkable purple and green 3-D sign is a friendly place and a good bar for live music. When you hear someone tell you, "You can't miss it," believe it.
