The 93rd annual La Fiesta de los Vaqueros, known to locals  as the Tucson Rodeo, was in spur-clinking swing this week, which meant that we stepped into our boots, saddled up, and went straight to the Horseshoe Grill for this weekend’s show!

Kevin Bedient, Matt Russell, Chef Andy Romero & Dan Gibson

Our celebrity co-host was Dan Gibson of Visit Tucson, who shared some of the stories that people were telling about the Tucson food scene these days. We also spoke about the new Arizona Wine Collective which just opened at St. Philip’s Plaza. Kevin Bedient of the Horseshoe Grill sat with us as well to talk about what was making news behind his bar, and the Shoe’s executive chef Andy Romero revealed some of the delicious items on his new menu.

Pork belly burnt ends? Yes!

The smoked pork belly burnt ends and the monstrous pit master sandwich were off the hook. Giddy up!
