Rooftop Dinner Summer Series: Agave Four-Course Pairing Experience with HUB Restaurant (MENU)

Beautiful views accompanied with savory dishes

Events are becoming apparent once again in Tucson, and a lot of them are selling out faster than expected — a sense of excitement is brewing in the culinary community.

After an incredibly quick sellout of its first event, HUB Restaurant & Creamery is hosting the second installment of its Rooftop Dinner Summer Series at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 15.
