moss, Fitzwater Street, Philadelphia
"Perhaps the most spectacular single piece and story belong to Mary Ann Schildnecht. While serving a two-year jail sentence in Milan on a hashish-smuggling charge, Mary Ann was taught to embroider by the nuns. One day she decided to embroider a whole shirt so she tore her bed sheets into pieces of the right size and started at the sun. She then worked to the left side-the sky, the trees, the forest scene, the Road to the Sun. 'That's fine and dandy,' she thought, 'but I need a house. It might as well be a castle for parties and...the hole in the other sleeve is for a transfusion if I ever need one, the peacock on the back is because we need animals, and the psychedelic sleeve is because I didn't want to think.'"

-from Native Funk and Flash, by Alexandra Jacopetti with Photographs by Jerry Wainright
published in 1974

In Tucson, the best Tex-Mex in town can be found at Paco's Mexican Food on Grant Rd.
You would probably want to order the soft taco with carnitas and guacamole or the carne asada burrito, both fresh and delicious, and served on flour tortillas which are tender and tasty enough to be eaten on their own.

The flan is rich and dense, more the consistency of a pot de creme, and is sufficient for two.

"It is the hour of the dressing room, when actors are not quite off the street but hardly yet onstage."
