Pasco Kitchen & Lounge + The Scratchboard Art of Paul Hopmanby Jim Gressinger on Aug. 10, 2012, under Downtown Tucson, Restaurant Reviews, Southern Arizona Art
I had the good fortune to do lunch at Pasco Kitchen & Lounge at Main Gate Square the other day. I won’t do a review here & now. It was just lunch, albeit a tasty one. And I had the good fortune to meet their bartender, Nick. I intend to return and have him practice his mixology on me next time.
Of course University Blvd. is totally torn up as workman lay track for the coming Modern Streetcar.
Clearly all the shops & restaurants along the route are suffering disproportionately compared to the rest of us who will ultimately benefit from this project. Out of simple fairness, I have determined to dine somewhere along the construction route at least once a week just to support the merchants.
That isn’t quite as altruistic as it may sound. If we don’t patronize them now, some, perhaps many, won’t be there when the project is completed. And that would leave us all the poorer.
Paul Hopman: Scratchboard Artist
On a completely different subject, Paul Hopman creates amazing animal portraits. I just made a short video featuring his scratchboard art wherein he illustrates how his beautiful animal images are created.
