Welcome to

Takes on Tucson!

All towns and cities have an aura, a “vibe,” which is the palpable expression of its people, places, practices, and venues.

Our writers have been charged with going out and personally experiencing – albeit briefly – the subject they’re writing about. It’s hoped that they can then “tell the story” of their Tucson-based experience in a manner that is engaging to people like you and me.
