New: Elvira’s Crosses the Border
Since 1927 Elvira’s Restaurant in Nogales, Mexico enjoyed the patronage of primarily tourists. That ended recently as tourists are simply afraid to cross the border and Nogales’ businesses are closing their doors. That’s when the family who runs Elvira’s decided to move north across the border and open in Tubac at the encouragement of long time customers. Now you can enjoy Elvira’s famous food at La Entrada de Tubac, 2221 E Frontage Rd, Bldg A, Tubac, (520) 398-9421 (A/o 4/3 Elivira’s is not open. It’s waiting for their liquor license.)
White Wednesday – April 1
Join photographer Beth Jonquil at CataVinos as she shows off her craft which adorns the walls and sample six white wines for $10 or $8 with bottle of wine purchase. It’s Beth’s birthday (no fooling). She hopes you show up with acoustical instruments to serenade her and the public is invited for birthday cake too. CataVinos is located at 3063 N. Alvernon Way.
