The Farmers’ Market at Maynards is every Saturday from 8am – 12pm! With 20+ vendors from the Tucson and surrounding area, this new Farmers’ Market location provides residents who live in or near downtown a weekly opportunity to enjoy shopping for fresh, local products without the long drive to St. Philip’s Plaza.
Three nearby garages, three large lots, and on-street parking availability will provide visitors to the Farmers’ Market with plenty of parking options.
While shopping and socializing in the shade of the mesquite trees at Maynards on Saturday morning sounds perfectly heavenly, what if you can’t make it every weekend? Not to worry – Maynards Market now carries even more of your favorite Farmers’ Market vendor goods, including fresh produce, flowers, organic meats, local cheeses, gift items, an expanded wine and beer selection, and so much more all week long!
Got Puzzles??? Check out the Jigsaw Puzzle Exchange at the Main Library. Bring puzzles to trade for puzzles from the display. Parking is free on Saturdays, Sundays, evenings, or less than one hour.
This event is free. July 1-31, 2012 — Mon-Wed 9-8, Thu 9-6, Fri 9-5, Sat 10-5, Sun 1-5. For more information, call Info Line at 791-4010 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s the night of a gala awards dinner at the Hotel Congress, and the who’s who of the town have filled Copper Hall. Suddenly The Ghost Wranglers burst through the door, interrupting the dinner to prove once and for all that there are ghosts in the Hotel Congress. And right in the middle of the chaos… another murder.
Acting troupe Murder Mayhem presents the second act of the murder mystery dinner theater. As a continuation of Part One, which happened in May, In Search of Dillinger’s Ghost takes place at Hotel Congress on Friday, July 20 with an encore performance on Saturday, July 21. Cocktails begin at 6:30pm, with dinner and the show at 7pm.
The evening is full of surprises – including an appearance by John Dillinger’s ghost who feels compelled to help solve the mystery in order to prevent any more murders from happening.
The audience will take part in the investigation by looking for clues – a prize will be given to the audience member who correctly guesses the murderer.
The evening will be enhanced with a three-course menu by the chefs at Cup Café:
Roasted Tomato Gazpacho, Cilantro & Goat Cheese
Herb Marinated Airline Chicken Breast, Roasted Fennel and Olive Ragout, Shiitake Mushroom and Corn Risotto, Sauteed Squash, and Grilled Jalapeno Cornbread
Broiled Portabella Mushroom, Wilted Greens, Savory Leek Bread Pudding, Roasted Red Pepper and Brie Sauce
Homemade Buttermilk Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake with Mint and Whipped Cream
Tickets are $45/person, tax and gratuity additional. Purchase tickets online at www.hotelcongress.com or contact Nora Jean Miller by e-mail at email@example.com.

The second play in Jem Street’s trilogy on American manners and mores, “Hope” tells the story of Joe Chandler, a successful businessman who is being courted to run for the House of Representatives. In one difficult night in a Tennessee hotel room, Joe must determine whether his history, his mistakes and his regrets are political liabilities. With an infamously racist father, a brief affair, a problematic business record, and of course he “inhaled,” Joe must ask himself the irony-tinged question: am I a good enough person to be a politician?
This is a full-length play and the performance dates are Friday and Saturday July 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th at 7:30 PM and Sunday July 22nd at 2:30 PM.

Chicago emcee Show You Suck, is putting his mark on the music world, one skateboarder at a time with his mad hooks, slick rhymes and thought provoking lyrics. Straight from the hood, but you’d never guess it with his board toting, fashion conscious personality and nack for 80s and 90s pop culture.

The Reverend Horton Heat is perhaps the most popular psychobilly artist of all time, his recognition only rivaled only by the esteem generated by the genre’s founders, the Cramps. The Reverend (as both the three-man band and its guitar-playing frontman were known) built a strong cult following during the ’90s through constant touring, manic showmanship, and a twisted sense of humor. The latter was nothing new in the world of psychobilly, of course, and Heat’s music certainly kept the trashy aesthetic of his spiritual forebears.
