OK Tucson, it’s Friday afternoon… do you know what you’re doing this weekend?  No matter how you answered that question, we have a strong suggestion for you – check out the Tucson Bacon, Blues & Brews on Saturday being hosted by Brother John’s and the great, local Tucson food group, Tucson Originals.

Tucson Originals & Brother John’s Host Bacon, Blues, & Brews August 13

https://tucsonfoodie.com/2016/08/09/tucson-originals-brother-johns-host-bacon-blues-brews-august-13/Tucson Originals, the well-known organization of many locally owned restaurants throughout Tucson, is teaming with Brother John’s Beer, Bourbon, & BBQ to host Bacon, Blues, & Brews.

The event will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, August 13 at Brother John’s, 1801 N. Stone Avenue.

As you can imagine, the event will feature everything bacon related, a blues band, and of course, beer.

Now if you happen to be a vegetarian, a teetotaler, or the blues just isn’t you’re groove… that’s OK, we’ll still talk to you ;0)

Not only that, but we’ll even give you some other options for things to do around the Old Pueblo over the weekend and beyond.  Hey, we’re equal opportunity Tucson lovers / share-ers (I don’t think that’s a real word, but we’ll “share” it with you anyway!)

http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2016/08/11/the-weekly-list-32-things-to-do-in-tucson-in-the-next-seven-daysReturn of the Mermaids: Celebrate the monsoon with this annual festival and parade. Dress up and join the mermaids as they make their way through 4th Avenue and Downtown Tucson. Families are welcome at this multi-venue event, but mermaids are known to get “a little racier” as the evening goes on, so parental discretion is advised. Follow the link for details on where to find your favorite under the sea activities, including: the mermaid pageant, the kids costume contest, a dinglehopper workshop, and the SURFBROADS. Noon-2 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 13.

The Princess Bride: Is there a better way to come down from a stressful week of work than watching a classically charming movie? Inconceivable! Join the good folks at the Loft for an evening of battling Rodents of Unusual Size, humiliations galore and, of course, popcorn. Showings: 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 12-13, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 14 at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway. $6, $5 for Loft members. The Loft also brings you John Water’s legendary Multiple Maniacs starting Friday, Aug. 12. Mondo Monday will feature Ghost Town (also shot at Old Tucson Studios) on Monday, Aug. 15.  . read more at tucsonweekly.com

Personally speaking, I think The Princess Bride is one of the greatest movies of all time, whether you’re a kid or an adult. If you (or your kids) haven’t seen it, definitely keep this in mind.  Or, if you HAVE seen it and you don’t agree, that’s fine to.  But why not share your choice of the best movie for both adults and kids to watch together?

Whatever you decide, we hope you have a fantastic weekend Tucson!
