Whether you’re looking for a date or just to hang out with someone new, Tucson is a great place to meet singles. However, it can be hard to know where to start.
If you’re single and are tired of playing the dating app games, try some of these tips to break into the local Tucson singles scene. Hopefully you’ll have fun and meet someone new!
1. El Charro Cafe
If you’re looking for a deliciously authentic Mexican food experience, head to El Charro Cafe in downtown Tucson. Founded in 1922, this historic Mexican restaurant is known for its traditional Sonoran-style cuisine.
It’s been named one of America’s top 50 restaurants by Nation’s Restaurant News, and its food is a must-try for any visitor to Tucson. Whether you’re craving classic tacos or a more authentic take on chimichangas, you won’t be disappointed with the food at El Charro Cafe.
The El Charro family is well-known for their passion for food and the hospitality they offer customers. Monica Flin started the business in 1922, and her daughter Carlotta Flores continues to run the company today. She and her family have opened several other restaurant concepts, but have stayed true to the traditions of the original El Charro Cafe.
2. The Shelter
The Shelter is a dark psychological drama about a man whose self-loathing has pushed him to the edge of insanity. The film is written and directed by John Fallon and stars Michael Pare.
The story centers around a man named Thomas (Michael Pare) who has been living on the streets for years. After a night on the town, Thomas decides to find some shelter in a large house that appears empty and inviting.
It seems like a great idea at first, until he wakes up the next morning and finds he has no way out. The house won’t let him leave and he is seemingly locked in by an invisible force.
Despite not being a horror movie, The Shelter is still an unsettling-at-times psychological drama that will hold you by the throat with stark claustrophobia. It is also a brilliant debut from writer-director John Fallon and a captivating showcase for Michael Pare as he owns the screen almost single-handedly.
3. Taco Bell
Tucson is home to many mouthwatering Mexican restaurants. Some are family-owned, while others are newer.
While some of the best Mexican food is in downtown Tucson, there are a few hidden gems that can be found throughout southern Tucson. This is especially true for those looking for some traditional Mexican food, such as tacos and guacamole.
One such restaurant is Taco Bell, which has a few locations throughout the city. It’s a popular restaurant for college students, as it has a large selection of savory dishes and fast service.
The restaurant also offers a taco subscription, which costs $10 a month and guarantees the holder a free taco every day for 30 days. The pass includes seven of the chain’s options, such as crunchy or soft Taco Supremes, Spicy Potato Soft Tacos, and Doritos Locos Tacos.
The trio of Maya Rizk, Ari Dettman and Rylande Dodge formed YUM in 2016, bringing a modern funk twist to the Tucson scene. YUM is known for their eclectic sound and can be seen on stages at Club Congress and Solar Culture.
It’s a great place to catch a live show or just hang out and drink local craft beers. They offer a variety of flights, including $3 drafts.
Aside from being a good place to meet new people, YUM is also known for their delicious brunch options, especially the huevos rancheros. They have a great outdoor patio and serve breakfast all day long.
If you’re looking for a quality restaurant that serves food with a modern flare, then YUM is a must-try. The menu changes daily, but you can count on delicious fusion dishes and a great atmosphere.
