Tubac Art Festival

Yesterday was a beautiful day to mosey around the Tubac Art Festival. It got up to 80 degrees with just brilliant sunshine (oh it's great to live where it's warm in the winter). Tubac is a small tourist town about 60 miles south of Tucson where they close off the whole town to set up approx. 100 booths for people to display their creative wears. It's always fun to walk around and see how creative people can be, there are always many unusual creations. They even have a free shuttle to get around.

After spending about 2 1/2 hours seeing all the wonderful art works, Jim is in line to get a big bag of Kettle Corn to take home.
 One happy camper!
 On our way home, we stopped at the Silver Saddle Steak House where Jim has always wanted to try since they opened back in 1980, but was never on that side of town (south by I10) close to dinnertime. We were quite surprised when we drove up at 4:45pm that the parking lot was already full and there was a waiting list. (Being open for 35 years - it must be good)
After a beer at the bar, we finally was seated after a 20 minute wait. Jim ordered a Mesquite Open Pit Steak.
 Here's the open pit where they do all the grilling.
 Jim's steak came out great, you really can't see it in this picture, but the grill marks are perfect.
 I had to taste their famous prime rib and it came out great also - not too fatty. Of course the meals came with cowboy beans.

The food was fabulous and we would definitely return whenever we are on that side of town again. When we left, the place was just packed with people waiting out the door. I'm glad we went early. We headed home to enjoy our dessert - Kettle Corn!
