East Tucson’s  Zona 78 will show off the classier potential in tailgating with their Tailgate Wine Dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, October 16.

The Italian kitchen’s own Paul Leathers will fire up the grill and smoke for courses to pair with hand-picked wines.

Salmon, airline chicken breast, and short ribs aren’t typical for tailgating, but who’s complaining?

Four wine-paired courses, plus dessert, is $45 plus tax and gratuity.

To make a reservation, call (520) 296-7878. Seating is limited, so call soon.
