  1. I’m actually attending two other food-related events this weekend. It is truly amazing how packed Tucson and the region is with places to have some good times.

    The Village of Elgin Winery is hosting their Blessing of the Vine Festival. Lots of food and sample tastings of Arizona’s best wines. http://www.elginwines.com/

    The Tucson Roller Derby, Humane Society and Barrio Brewery are hosting their Tails & Ales Dog Wash. Get your dog microchipped and washed your dog while you watch a ping pong tournament and enjoy a Sonoran hot dog. http://www.tucsonrollerderby.com/events.php?id=89
