Throwback Thursday ~ Boot Still Stands

17 AUGUST 2011

Tucson's big boot ~

This 17' tall boot was formerly the landmark sculpture that denoted a famous old Tucson restaurant, The Tack Room. It began as the restaurant for a dude ranch and eventually was recognized as Tucson's first five-star restaurant. Sadly for resident gourmets and tourists alike, The Tack Room closed in 2003. The property is now a gated residential community. 


  1. Really glad The Boot didn't get the.....well...you know (somebody's got to say it)..."the boot", just for a fancy housing development :)
