Modern Streetcar Construction on Congress St. Is No Reason To Avoid Downtown Food & Fun!by Jim Gressinger on Apr. 20, 2012, under Day/Weekend Adventures, Downtown Tucson, Fairs & Festivals, Things To Do In Tucson, Things To Do With The Kidz, Upcoming Local Events
Most Tucson locals know that portions of Congress Street downtown will be closed for the next several months in order to install track and other equipment for our new streetcar. What many don’t realize is that getting around the construction is easy and there is no reason to avoid our downtown restaurants and other points of interest, such as the Fox Theater.
Which reminds me, the next 2nd Saturday downtown food & entertainment is May 12th starting around 5:30 PM and partying until 10:30. These are family-friendly events and lots of good food and music. Most downtown restaurants are open during construction, including my favorites: Maynard’s Market & Kitchen, Cup Cafe’, Janos Downtown Kitchen, and Hub Cafe’.
