tucson arizona cactus desert
Touring a lot with White Mystery means getting to know cities around the world. Tucson, Arizona is one of my favorite places and here’s a couple travel tips for your next visit:
  • Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson (MOMA) awesome contemporary art museum near downtown located in a renovated firehouse. Ask for Jocko, and tell him Miss Alex White sent you! http://www.moca-tucson.org
  • Hotel Congress definitely a cool place to catch bands, eat dinner, or stay overnight in a quaint, historic, incredibly haunted room. http://hotelcongress.com/
  • Colonial Frontiers my cousin’s warehouse contains architectural antiquities from all around the world— like giant doors from Burma, pottery from Guinea, and Indian jewelry. Again, tell ’em Alex White sent you and explore the whole block for more unique shopping. http://www.colonialfrontiers.com/
  • Pappoule’s authentic Greek food made by Chicagoans in the great desert— it’s a free standing restaurant near the Foothills Mall. Try the gyros, Greek salad, baklava, and put a lemon wedge in your fountain coke. http://www.pappoules.com/
  • Penca this is a friend’s restaurant downtown— imagine Longman & Eagle blended with Tucson cowboy Mexican cuisine. Great cocktails and a modern twist on tacos for dinner, with a very cool interior. http://www.pencarestaurante.com/

    Hotel Congress is indeed a cool place. I’d like to add The Shelter to your list. One of my favorite divey kitschy lounges ever. First stepped into The Shelter in the mid-90’s and was very happy to see it alive & kicking on a trip to Tucson in 2012. http://thesheltercocktaillounge.com/
