Best of Tucson winner: Best Romantic Setting and Best Trainspotting

7 p.m. FRIDAY

Please join us for a no-host dinner at the Grill. This is a Zolondz/Tyning/Jimenez favorite for several reasons, the biggest being the TATER TOTS. It is diner-style food: cheap, greasy, sassy and there’s a pie case. Are you convinced yet? Entreés range from $5-$15.

If you’re looking for something fun to do while you’re in town, here are some suggestions:

Browse the shops on 4th Ave. It is a short walk or trolley ride away from the Hotel Congress, and a short cab or car ride from other area hotels. Our favorite shops include Pop Cycle (handmade art and functional goods using recycled items) and Tucson Thrift Shop (A cool costume and vintage shop that’s Bobby’s go-to place for sunglasses)

List of shops

Shop for crazy novelty toys or locally-made art and jewelry. This strip mall is a favorite due to the amazing Yikes! toy store. Many an afternoon has been spent filling our baskets with novelties and fun things like a condiment gun or mustache collections. Stop by Bohemia next door for cool art, jewelry and fun things made by area residents.

Map and directions

See desert plants at the Tucson Botanical Garden. A beautiful and historical oasis in the heart of Tucson, Tucson Botanical Gardens is a place of beauty inspiration and education about the natural world. There are 16 different gardens within the grounds representing a variety of gardening traditions and botanical themes. Here you can see various kinds of desert plants including cacti and flowering shrubbery. Birds and Butterflies are in abundance amongst the foliage and there is plenty of shade. A visit here of an hour or 2 is definitely worth the time if you’re into horticulture, nature, or just looking for a pleasant place to visit.
