The Loft Cinema, the Royale shows foreign and classic films and serves beer, wine, and food so you can drink and dine while you enjoy a film. I have to say that the sculpture has to be the biggest fly I have ever seen! Don't know the story about it so if you do, please share!

Bisbee Ghost Tour will verify. This stencil might be a stop on the tour or just be a sentiment by a Bisbee resident.

Here is "Stairway #3" in the annual climb event. Bisbee, AZ is an old mining town near Tucson. After the boom, Bisbee transformed itself into a quirky and interesting Old West artisan community. Each year the town hosts the Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb, a unique fitness challenge that uses the town's many winding streets and steep stairways to create a fun event. This year it will be held in October. Click on the link for more info or to register for it! "The Climb" provides many astounding views of the town and the surrounding mountains. Climb on!

Silver King Hotel. It claims it has Arizona's smallest bar and yes, the bar is tiny! Cute place and pet friendly.

Copper Queen Hotel. Here's a shot of the lobby decorated with period furniture. The construction started in 1898 and was finished in 1902. For a time Bisbee was the biggest city between St Louis and San Francisco!

Shady Dell Trailer Hotel in Bisbee, AZ. I love this mural! It looks like a giant vintage postcard that someone may have mailed in the 1950's. "Wish you were here!"

Reid Park Zoo had a fun Friday night party where all kinds of cool things were taking place around the grounds. The stilt dancers were mesmerizing, the lions were lounging, and this male peacock is looking a bit pensive, wouldn't you say (gorgeous, though!)?

Alliance Francaise's new digs. The Alliance recently moved from their Alvernon location to a big space in the Junior League building on River Rd near Campbell. Here French chanteuse Elisabeth Blin entertained the guests with French songs. Wonderful party!

OK - for those of you who regularly visit the site you know what this means! The first person to identify where this Indian is located wins a "fabulous" TDP t-shirt or mousepad! Tucson was, after all, the Wild West, so it's no surprise to see a cigar store Indian. But WHERE is he, that's the question! Good luck!
