While most food and drink lovers can can sip and munch away at will, those with Type 1 diabetes aren’t so lucky.

On March 23, join a handful of restaurants, mixologists, and judges for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) benefit, Sip, Savor & Celebrate.

Enjoy food from restaurants such as Reilly Craft Pizza & Drink, Reforma, and The Living Room, while eight mixologists compete for the 2018 “Mix Madness” crown. The competition features judges Isabella Joffroy from Yelp, On The Menu Live’s Matt Russell, and Tucson Foodie founder Adam Lehrman.

The event also features Borderlands Brewing, Dillinger Brewing, and New Belgium Brewing.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding Type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle and there is nothing one can do to prevent it. Presently, there is no cure.

Tickets for the event are $125 and can be purchased at

Adam Lehrman started Tucson Foodie in late 2008 as a way to track his search for the best food Tucson had to offer.

    WELL. In July of 2017. it was discovered that I got type 2 diabetes, By the end of the July month. I was given a prescription for the Metformin, I stated with the some diet and followed it completely for several weeks but was unable to get my blood sugar below 140, Without results to how for my hard work. I really panicked and called my doctor. His response?? Deal with it yourself, I started to feel that something wasn’t right and do my own research, Then I found Lisa’s great blog (google ” How I freed myself from diabetes ” ) .. I read it from cover to cover and I started with the diet and by the next week. my blood sugar was 100, Since then. I get a fasting reading between the mid 70s and 80s, My doctor was very surprised at the results that. the next week. he took me off the Metformin drug, I lost 16 pounds in my first month and lost more than 3+ inches off my waist and I’m able to work out twice a day while still having lots of energy. The truth is that we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods..
