Bison Witches is a popular, nontraditional bar on 4th Avenue. It's a bar, yes, but it serves way better than average bar food. In fact, the soups (served in bread bowls) are amazing! This little place has a very easy going vibe.
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. (:
