    North Tucson's Tohono Chul Park provides one of the most stunning desert botanical spectacles in all of the Southwest and, within the park, this quaint tearoom offers a memorable dining-in-the-desert experience. Set amidst the lushness of centuries-old cactus and succulents, the brick building houses a slightly feminine looking (it is a tea room, after all) but not frou-frou cafe. You can also dine out in the splendid natural surroundings on a courtyard patio. The menu can't begin to compete with the setting, but it includes a good selection of breakfast items, quiches, salads, soups, sandwiches and a few hot entree specials.

    »Putney's

    Here's one of the most popular sports bars in Tucson, run by an ex-school teacher who in 1978 decided his real calling was to sell pastrami.

Other than watching athletic games on TV, clients pass their time playing video games or doing karaoke. The kitchen offers all-American fare, from tuna melt sandwiches to chili cheeseburgers.
