It's been fun, but....

Well, the time has come to move on. That's it. Adios. Buh-bye.

I've packed up and moved all of the stuff here over to

Please head over that way for my latest ramblings, musings, etc. If you are one of the people kind enough to follow my blog here, you can subscribe to my posts over there.

If you have any questions, just leave me a comment here or there and I'll get back to you!

My thanks to everyone who's been stopping by.


Coming Soon!

When I decided that I was going to start compiling information for various things (New Year's Eve, Happy Hours, etc.), I didn't think it through as much as I should have. It turns out that those particular things would work a whole lot better with multiple pages. Can you do multiple pages in Blogger? Why no, you can't!

So I'm packing up and moving over to WordPress. I've been messing with the CSS trying to get the look to be pretty similar to what I've got going here, but that's still going to be something of a work in progress.

If you'd like, you can preview the new site at If you have any feedback, I'd love to hear it. If you have any feedback that comes with the necessary CSS code to make it work I'd love to hear that even more!


Marketplace at Acacia

I recently received an email from Marketplace at Acacia with 2 for $20 dinner specials that include dessert. These looked pretty dang good to me, especially considering they're coming from the good folks at Acacia. If it's coming from Chef Albert Hall (no relation, btw), you can be pretty sure it's going to be good.

Besides the dinners, they do breakfast featuring freshly-baked danishes & other pastries Arbuckle coffee. They also do catering and are willing to help out with your holiday needs.

They're located in St. Phillip's Plaza, on the southeast corner of River & Campbell. The Marketplace is open 7am-6pm M-Sat, and 7am-3pm on Sundays. If you have questions, you can call them at 520-323-0124.

Lococo's Pizza

I like Lococo's Pizzeria, and I've got some pretty good reasons for it:
  • They've got great super-thin crust pizza. I mean, it's really thin. Like tortilla thin. But it's crispy and stands up to their hearty sauce. The cheese actually has flavor and texture, unlike many of the chain places. It's cheap, too. A 16" cheese pie is $12.95. If you want a double crust, add a dollar.
  • They've got the cheapest beer imaginable. A 48oz pitcher of Bud/Bud Light will set you back $4.00. Bud too swanky for you? A bottle or can of PBR will set you back $1.25. Still too rich for your blood? A can of Old Style can be had for a buck.
  • They're just nice folks. It's a family-run place, and they seem to genuinely want their customers to leave happy.
When you add on free delivery (not to my house, but still), live music on Friday & Saturday (9pm until whenever on Friday and 7-9pm Saturday), and a pretty broad menu, I think you've got yourself a winner.

Lococo's is in the Bashas' Plaza at Thornydale & Cortaro. They're open 11am-9pm Sun-Thurs, Friday 11am until they're not open anymore, and Saturday 11am - 10pm. Got questions? Visit or give them a call at 520-744-7136.
