Did you know that the amazing Mexican heroic meal, the chimichanga ("chimi"), was invented in Tucson? Yes, it's true! The original owner of El Charro was making a midnight snack and the burrito landed in hot oil. A legend was born! Read more about it here where the LA Times raves about it! YUM!
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. (:
