Cheers for Birds & Beer!

by Erin Olmstead

Tucson Audubon’s Happy Hour tradition is a casual monthly get-together and a fun way for visitors and locals alike to get acquainted with the birding community here in Tucson.  Every third Thursday, we gather at Sky Bar on 4th Avenue to share bird pics and stories over pizza and drinks. 
Sky Bar is a solar-powered café by day, astronomy bar by night and the friendly staff love hosting our group.  Owner and green-biz whiz Tony Vaccaro, generously donates yummy solar-powered pizza from Brooklyn Pizza Company, voted Best in Tucson, right next door.  Thanks, Tony!
All birders and bird photographers are invited to join the fun – just stop by!  Our 'flock' takes over the far left corner of the bar between 5 and 7pm.  If you’d like to share photos from your birding adventures in Arizona (or further afield) on the big screen please bring them to Birds & Beer on a USB stick or disk, or add them to Tucson Audubon’s Flickr group ahead of time.  When you arrive, be sure to check in with Tucson Audubon staffers Erin Olmstead or Kara Kaczmarzyk to get your pizza coupon and let us know if you’ve got pics to show.  Hope to see you there!
Don’t let the 4th Avenue construction/disruption deter you from good times (and good eats) to be had this summer!  Sky Bar’s free covered customer parking at the corner of 4th Avenue and 5th Street is easily accessible.  The current best approach is to 3rd Avenue to 5th Street.  

National Small Business Week is coming up – please consider Tucson Audubon’s Birds & Business Alliance members when you need the services of a local business.  Because they support Tucson Audubon, you know these businesses have our natural environment in mind and so have a broader, more progressive approach to running their business. Wield your consumer purchase power toward a vibrant Tucson where people and wildlife thrive!
