The Best Laid Plans

Due to technical difficulties yesterday’s On The Menu…..Live with Matt Russell did not air.

Anyway, here is what was going to be on the menu:

We were going to discuss the passing of Pat Connors and all that he did for Tucson at his many years at Pastiche. The Tucson community misses him and will always have great memories of a truly, nice guy,

Three Canyon Beer and Wine Garden was the setting. Located on Sabino Canyon Road near Snyder opened only one week ago. We were going to talk about the enormous number of libations that can be found at Three Canyon and about their future plans. They have a real cool “garden” area in the back and food trucks are on site daily.

Then the folks from Sentinel Peak Brewing Company were going to call in to talk about The Third Annual North Tucson Firefighters Association (NTFFA) BBQ Challenge that will be held on Saturday April 8, 2017 at Steam Pump Ranch in Oro Valley. Firefighter and police teams will compete in a friendly cook-off featuring BBQ, smoked meats and side dishes. Tickets are $10 (5 tickets for food and drink). Sentinel Peak beers will be part of the event and the money raised will support Foster and Adoptive Council of Tucson (FACT), a local entity that assists agencies that work with adoptive and foster care.

Then I was going to talk about my new book, ‘Historic Restaurants of Tucson’ and about the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation’s Tastes of the Tack Room dinner that will be held at Maynard’s on 4/7/17, where I will be signing and selling ‘Lost Restaurants of Tucson’.

It was a shame that we couldn’t air yesterday, but I had fun anyway and look forward to being on the show in the near future.
