Recent transplant to Tucson. Originally from Portland—no, the other Portland (in Maine, silly!). I like late-night conversations, thought-provoking literature, not falling off my bike on 4th Ave, and cooking dinner for friends.

FYI: There is no sponsored content on the Zócalo Hannah blog. That's not my style.

I went to eegees. Then to Mt. Lemmon. Then to the Tanque Verde Swap Meet where I took no pictures (for some inexplicable reason), but where I got to practice my Spanish (and Arabic!) and buy: tons of candy (mostly tamarind and/or chile flavored, of course, with a healthy dose of mango tossed in), a jar […]

What are you gonna be for Halloween? I’m gonna be Jasmine. Cuz she’s a badass and blue is a pretty color and her feet are a women’s size three, just like mine. Also it will be fun to confuse everyone because they’ll be all, “But you’re wicked blonde and you don’t look like Jasmine at […]

I caught Jacks sitting in Café Passé on a beautiful, late summer afternoon. You can’t see it very well in this photo, but she was wearing a rad hxc vintage shirt. I loved the contrast of that shirt with her soft leather maryjanes and those beautiful ochre jeans (I have a thing for colored jeans […]

I have my vices, but I like to think of myself as a relatively healthy eater. I mean—and let’s be honest with each other here—to eat “relatively” healthily isn’t that difficult these days if the bar is set at an all-American diet of processed meat and cheese, corn-based products of all kinds, and sugar sweet […]

This past Tuesday, the venue Topaz hosted band Dream Salon (of the Pacific Northwest) and rounded out the night with performances by locals Ohioan, Sam Christopher, and Death Moth Family Band. Pictures below (in no particular order, sorry—and I’m also sorry that I’m such a shitty photographer). Also, check out the exclusive mix posted on Topaz’s […]

I try not to shy away from eating out solo, especially when a reticence to do so might stand in the way of me enjoying some damn good food. The other day I had an hour to kill before work, so I headed up the street to have lunch at Maya Quetzal, a spot I’d […]

A seriously delicious prickly pear-black iced tea. I wish I were richer; I would’ve bought a larger size! But at $1.75, the 12 oz. was pricey enough for me (refills are 50¢). At least I know my money’s support a radical* local business. Next time I come in here I want to drop some of […]

“Hiatus? So soon!?” you (=my already-devoted followers, aka my parents; hi, guys!) ask. “From the looks of that picture, it seems like you’ve just been stuffing your face on junk food and drinking an ungodly number of Miller High Lifes, Miss Zócalo Hannah,” you continue (sorry, Mom & Dad, it definitely wasn’t me who drank […]

Tiffany Rose. I spotted Tiffany Rose outside of Epic Café and had to ask — where are you headed? She looked so fly. Lo and behold, she was headed to work. I loved the details of her outfit: the giant hoops through big gauges, neon-bright nails, and, of course, the fact that she was biking.
