Happy first week of summer!
As the temperatures continue to climb, so does the desire for air-conditioned events. We get it. Without further ado, here’s this week’s event suggestions that won’t break a sweat.
URAMAKI SUSHI MAKING CLASS WITH ANTSY NANCY

‘KEEP TUCSON VINYL’ AT THE DELTA
Thursday, June 23 at 8 p.m.
WEEKLY DJ SETS EVERY THURSDAY
If you haven’t heard, someone attempted to start a fire at The Delta earlier this week. They could use your support now more than ever as they suffered damages.
Every Thursday, 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.
