Longtime Tucson Restaurant Closing

Grab Casa Sanchez food one last time.Daniel Lloyd Blunk-Fernandez/Unsplash. There have been a number of favorite restaurants that just haven’t made it through this past year and the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants, in general, run very thin margins, depending on a steady flow of customers to meet payroll needs. Due to the extensive forced shutdowns, many restaurants were not able to withstand the financial impact and, in the end, either closed their doors or never re-opened.

Whether you hail from the deep South or you just occasionally crave a low country boil, you’ve probably discovered there aren’t many options available here in Tucson. The city itself is fantastic for food lovers of Southwestern and Mexican offerings, but for traditional Southern food, outside of BBQ, there aren’t many options.

Mommy-Daughter Spa Opening in Tucson Mall

Relax during your next mall visitAlan Caishan/Unsplash. There’s just something about the mall food court and just a trip to the mall in general. Perhaps there’s more nostalgia in it than anything else, but for many throughout the area, visiting the Tucson Mall, shopping, and grabbing something to eat brings back feelings of childhood when hanging with friends at the mall was the “cool” thing to do. Back when everything a teenager needed was at the mall, including the movie theater.

To-Go Cocktails Now Legal in Tucson

Over this past year, both local and state governments have made special exceptions and tweaked old laws to help out the food and drink industry. Because for the majority of 2020 restaurants were not allowed to provide in-person dining, and even when patio and interior dining became an option restaurants were not allowed past minimum capacity. However, in order to help with the significant loss of this revenue one particular emergency law that went into effect was a “to-go” cocktail law. This law made it possible for establishments, especially bars without any food menu, to sell cocktails to patrons in sealed containers.
