A gas station at the corner of Houghton and Speedway is sometimes an open air market of sorts. Here you can get gas for your car and also pick up a retro metal lawn chair or two, a milkcan, or a decorative windmill. Convenience store indeed!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
