A new month brings new things to do! You’re in for a treat this week: Tucson Foodie is presenting not one, but two events.

Join us for a Summer Cocktail Party at Obon and sample 15+ cocktails and different libations. If you’re looking for something a bit more wholesome, our first-ever Vegan Night is taking place on Saturday at Owls Club. Westbound turns five on Doughnut Day (Friday), and like always, there’s some yoga to help undo all the eating/drinking you may have done.

Don’t forget, you can always check out our Things to Do section on the website to check out what’s going on any day of the week.
