Dishing It Out

Popular topics of conversation around the Tucson Lifestyle office tend to focus on the tastiest offerings at our favorite restaurants. Because April is traditionally the month we recognize culinary achievements at eateries around the city, we decided to publicize some of the top menu items (as chosen by our staff) at 10 local spots. We are betting if you try these delicious dishes you’ll discover new favorites, too! See the mouth-watering story by Sarah Burton beginning on page 64.

It may seem like it was only yesterday, but MIXfm went on the air 30 years ago this year. For many of us, this station’s deep and ever-developing playlist is the soundtrack of our lives — at home, work and in the car. Executive Editor Scott Barker sat down with three much-loved MIX on-air personalities, and two invaluable guys behind the scenes, to hear their fun remembrances and anecdotes from their careers in radio. Tune in to the article, which commences on page 80.

This is the ideal time of year to get out and explore our city, and a perfect way to do that is to attend some or all of the fabulous fundraisers and sensational celebrations taking place. We’ve focused on eight of them — Hearts & Horses Gala, Laugh ’til It Hurts, Puttin’ on the Dog, Sculpture Month Show & Sale, Silver & Turquoise Ball, Baile de las Flores, Rincon Rotary’s 10th Annual Taste of Chocolate, and The EVENT. Check out the details, starting on page 72.

And as you head out on your jaunts, be sure to take good care of your skin! Elena Acoba spoke with local experts to find out how to keep looking your best. Page 88 is where you will find their advice.
