Foodie Events: Tapas, wine tastings, DJ parties & more on Thursday, June 16

Hi everyone! My name is Adilene Ibarra (she/her/hers), but I go by Addie. I’ve lived in Tucson my entire life, though I’ve been to four out of the seven continents in search of adventure and good food and drinks. I’m incredibly excited to be part of the Tucson Foodie team as the Event Foodie.

Moving forward, it’s my plan to deliver a robust calendar of events — think easy-to-view and most of all, comprehensive. In addition to that, we’ll be rounding up events that we think you’ll find interesting. Starting with this week.

There are quite a few events happening this Thursday, June 16, that we wanted to put on your radar. So, without further ado, let me introduce this week’s suggestions:

Every Thursday at 8 p.m., DJs (who are owners of local vinyl stores) will be taking turns spinning records at The Delta.

There’s no specific genre, just cool vintage vinyl jams, and the funky sounds will be paired with local drafts, wine, and spirits. Oh, and make sure to drink local because they’ll be offering half-off deals on all local/regional alcohol.

For more information, follow The Delta on Facebook
