Fun Things in Tucson: Spanish Colonial Foods, Desert Museum Summer Evening and the Muppets at the Loft

Another warm 100-plus weekend in Tucson, but can the monsoons be far away?  So here is a hot day, cool evening and air conditioned list of options for your Tucson weekend.

Cool (relatively speaking) Summer Saturday Evening at the Desert Museum: Native American Culture Night

The Summer Saturday Evenings series continues at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum tonight.  This week is  Native American night.  Native American communities are deeply connected to our land and have a great appreciation and knowledge of the plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert region. Enjoy a very special evening of learning about the Sonoran Desert from Native American neighbors as they share traditional ecological knowledge, cultural traditions, stories, cultural performances and food.  For more information, click the link:  Desert Museum Summer Saturday Night

Stay Even Cooler with Movies at Tucson's Cool Loft Cinema

And if the pre-monsoon Tucson heat has totally driven you to inside activities, there is the The Muppet Movie Sing-A-Long, a totally “gonzo” interactive screening of the one-and-only original Muppet Movie, featuring onscreen lyrics to all the film’s classic songs like “The Rainbow Connection,” “Movin’ Right Along,” “Can You Picture That?” and more! And if the Muppets are not your cup of tea, there are some other great flicks showing there as well in air conditioned comfort.  And the snack bar serves wine and local beers!   The Muppets kick off at 7pm tonight.  Here is a link to the Loft for more information on the Muppets Movie and their other current offerings.
