Upcoming Events

What: G.U.T. Block Party on Broadway
When: Sunday, October 1st from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: Carriage House parking lot, corner of Broadway & Arizona Avenue

Throughout the summer, G.U.T. (Gastronomic Union of Tucson) has put on a series of sell-out dinners with various themes of whole hog preparation. As you may know by now, G.U.T. is a collaboration of over 30+ local chefs and food professionals whose goal is to bring together the culinary community; just an all-around great group of people that like to feed and educate others. Their events are a blast, and this one happens to be kid-friendly (yay!).

Four G.U.T. chefs will each prepare a whole hog in their own culinary style:

  • Matt Cable from Fresco Pizza will smoke his hog.
  • Chef Michael Elefante from Mama Louisa’s will fix his “Porcetta” style.
  • Chef Obie from the Mountain Oyster Club will offer a Caja China (box roasted) preparation.
  • Chef Gary Hickey from Charro Steak will cook his on a spit over a mesquite fire.

Twenty local chefs will prepare side dishes and dessert and to wash it all down there will be beer samples from Barrio Brewing, Crooked Tooth, Dillinger Brewing, and Pueblo Vida.

Your ticket includes as much food as you can eat, four beer samples, and the guarantee that you won’t have to make dinner on Sunday.

Tickets are $40.00 for adults and $12.50 for kids under 15.  Kids get all they can eat for $12.50. Tickets are going fast, so don’t wait too long to buy yours.

Tickets can be purchased  here.

A percentage of the proceeds from the Block Party on Broadway will go to TEDxTucson.

See you there!
