Did you know that the word Pub is actually short for Public House? We were thinking of doing some serious pubbing this weekend, and our journey took us to Union Public House – the venue for this exciting broadcast. This week’s celebrity co-host was Rita Connelly, food writer for the Tucson Weekly and founder of the Well-Fed Foodie. Rita reported on things making food news this week, and shared some of her recent culinary and cocktail adventures. We then sat down with Laura Adams of the Tucson Coffee Crawl who helped us to map out our own crawls around Tucson’s leading cups of joe. Union’s owner Grant Krueger joined us for a discussion about the bar scene at his place, which includes the iconic Copper Cup and Punch Bowl drinks. Our featured guest was Union’s Chef Jack Tate, who has now jumped to the top of our list of favorite local chefs. We love everything this guy is about, and his artistry is celebratory. On your next visit to Union, ask for the duck confit risotto with spicy coppa, fresh sage, orange twist and pecorino romano cheese. Or maybe you’d like the braised short rib on a blanket of liquid corn bread! #FoodBliss
