  1. Was again at this MSA Annex last night, with people listening to music in their courtyard, drinking (presumably alcohol), eating from Solid Grindz food truck (Samoan/Hawaiian food). Check it out again today for final weekend festivities, along with music at the original Mercado. Lots of folks using Sun Link streetcar last night to visit this new venue out west.

  2. Wow, dropped by this new MSA Annex and didn’t realize it is a new shopping venue in metal barge-like containers of 14 (or so) upscale shops and soon to be restaurants in a cluster right next to the 2nd to the last stop at the Mercado. Mariachi music and Mayor Jonathan Rothschild were there for the grand opening, along with lots of curious Tucsonans. Music and food trucks all weekend to discover this new shopping opportunity. Check it out.
