‘The Glass Menagerie’ comes to Repertory “I had no idea how we were going to do this, because one of the main elements of the play is a fire escape,” “The Glass Menagerie,” written by legendary Luttschwager said. “A lot happens on the fire escape.

ASHLEY REID The last thing you want to do on a night of Netflix marathoning is leave your warm bed in search of food. But by this point in the school year, most of us aren’t as excited about eating Domino’s or Jimmy John’s (again) as we were back in August. Here are five more places to try that deliver straight to your door:

Eat-a-Pita Weekend delivery hours: Friday, Saturday 10:30– 2:30 a.m.; Sunday 10:30-1:30 a.m. Pitas galore! As you can gather from its catchy name, Eat-a-Pita delivers handcrafted pitas filled with tasty ingredients to your door in under half an hour. While the restaurant is known for pita creations like the chicken caesar pita (get excited, it comes covered in bacon), it also offers salads, chips, chocolate chip cookies and hummus.

Mama’s Hawaiian Bar-B-Cue Every day until 3 a.m. Transform your living space into a tropical paradise by ordering some tasty Hawaiian food and putting on your swimsuit (totally normal for Arizona students, right?). This barbecue joint has wings, teriyaki, salads, burgers, sandwiches and a variety of fish dishes. The desserts include pineapple upside down cake and guava cake, which sounds fantastic. The prices are student-friendly with plates starting around $6.

Tucson Cookie Co. Friday, Saturday 5 p.m.–3 a.m.;

Sunday 5 p.m.–midnight Have you ever dreamt of having freshly baked cookies without having to turn on your oven (or is that just me)? Regardless, there is a real company in town that will bake cookies and deliver them straight to you— they’ll even bring you milk and ice cream to complete the ensemble. Cookies are ready within 1520 minutes of placing your order. Dreams do come true.

Szechuan Omei Friday, Saturday until 9:30 p.m; Sunday until 9 p.m. In the world of Tucson Chinese food delivery, Szechuan Omei reigns. Chow mein, lo mein, chop suey and fried rice are just a few things on the extremely long menu. Delivery time is about 45-60 minutes, so order at least one show in advance so you’re entertained while waiting for your food.

Cheba Hut Friday–Saturday until 3 a.m., Sunday until midnight To be quite frank, I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about ordering food from a restaurant that names the size of its subs after marijuana-related terms, but judging is wrong. These are the best sandwiches ever. Not only does Cheba Hut have outrageously great subs, it also has Rice Krispies bars and brownies. And no, not special brownies.

WILDCAT WEEKEND • 5 What’s your favorite drink to make? Probably a Bloody Mary. It gets boring just pouring beers all day long. I like making mixed drinks. Old fashioneds are really fun too.

H e y, Barkeep!

So opposite side of the spectrum, what is your least favorite drink to make? It depends on the day, but sometimes a mojito kind of sucks to make. Something that’s muddled, but that’s only when I’m super busy. So do you make your old fashioneds muddled? Oh yeah, but it’s not as much strength that goes into it. Your hand kind of hurts after a while when you’re making a mojito, but it depends on the day. How long have you been at Che’s Lounge? Three, maybe four months. Is that how long you’ve been bartending? No, I’ve been bartending for two years. Would you say Che’s Lounge is known for anything in particular? Che’s is known for PBRs, High Life, really good Bloody Mary’s, awesome people and good music.

Is there a most strange, weird event you’ve seen go down at the bar? There’s fights and stuff that happen that still kind of weird me out a little bit, just because I’m newer to the bar scene. I used to work at a restaurant for awhile, so that kind of throws me off still. Why can’t I think of anything weird? People are just weird sometimes. If as a customer I want to piss you off as a bartender, what do I do? Piss me off? Ah, OK. The number one way to piss me off is to sexually harass me in any way, shape or form. Any little thing. That’s the fastest way to piss me off. If I want to make your job as easy as possible, what do I do? Just be nice. Tip well if you got your beer in a timely manner and I wasn’t being bitchy to you. Just be cool. That’s all. Is there a drinking trend you’d like to see go away? Maybe asking, “what’s your cheapest drink?” That happens a lot. What else is lame?

Let’s taco ’bout new restaurant


Cali Nash

ormally, a blend of coffee, pork and butternut squash wouldn’t be someone’s first choice for taco ingredients, but new restaurant Gio Taco makes it work. Now a member of the ever-expanding downtown Tucson, Gio Taco embodies the unique spirit that the other storefronts lining Congress Street and Broadway Boulevard have come to be known for. Gio Taco was founded with a no-rules approach. It isn’t trying to Americanize or modernize Mexican cuisine, and it doesn’t have a cookie-cutter consumer in mind. Instead of attempting to compete with the countless other Mexican restaurants in Tucson, it wants to provide customers with a new dining experience. Gio Taco, which opened last month, has an upbeat, informal atmosphere. Owner Brian Metzger said his goal was to create a casual dining restaurant with full service that is less expensive and more fun than other eateries, but with food that is “at the same level, if not better.” The space is large and open with vibrant pink wallpaper lining the back wall where the bar is located — think modern interpretations of Mexican patterns meet graphic design. You order at the counter and sit and relax until a waiter brings your food. Despite the restaurant’s relaxed atmosphere, Metzger was clear about one thing: Each taco must have four items or less. This idea forced staff to carefully consider what ingredients would go into each dish. “If there’s only going to be four items on Steve Nguyen/ The Daily Wildcat a taco, and they can be any four items that Gio Taco, a new restaurant downtown, serves a variety of different tacos, including The Tarheel and Duck Mole. Owner Brian Metzger said that despite the restaurant’s casual, modyou want, they’d better be damn good,” ern atmosphere, there is a strict rule that each taco can have no more than four ingredients — coffee, pork belly, butternut squash and more are all fair game.

Standout student performers go solo Winners of UA Concerto Competition will get time in the spotlight at 41st Annual President’s Concert this weekend


Kevin Reagan

revor Barroero will fulfill a childhood dream this Sunday. He is performing as a soloist on the stage of Centennial Hall. An opportunity that few music students will ever get, performing on the grand stage is one of the perks of winning the annual University of Arizona Concerto Competition at the School of Music. The winners are awarded the chance to select a piece of music and showcase it with the accompaniment of a 40 member orchestra. Barroero, a sophomore percussionist, is among the four winners of this year’s competition, along with Natalia Duarte, Humberto Borboa and Jinny Huh. They will each perform at the 41st Annual President’s Concert on Sunday at 3 p.m. “It’ll be nice to be in front of the orchestra,” Barroero said. “I’m so used to performing in the back.” Barroero will be performing his piece on a marimba, a xylophonelike instrument that has deep cultural roots in Latin America. Barroero was first introduced to the marimba in elementary school. He describes the instrument as having two sides: one that controls the tone of the music and one that keeps the rhythm of the beat. “There are so many options in

said. “I am excited to play music and I’m sure it will be a good musical experience.” Another artist who will take the stage this weekend is Bluetech, otherwise known as Evan Bartholomew. He describes his music as “space hop.” “There is definitely a strong psychedelic element there,” he said, “but I like space hop.” He has toured internationally for over a decade, hitting faraway places such as Israel, Australia, Eastern and Western Europe and has played for diverse audiences — including the Prime Minister of Croatia.

Emmanuel Séjourné, “Concerto for Marimba and Strings.” The material performed by all four soloists will range from Russian opera to Mexican pop. The President’s Concert will also feature a performance of Mozart’s overture to “Die Zauberflöte” by the School of Music’s Arizona Symphony Orchestra.

“Everyone in the audience will find something they enjoy,” Barroero said. Barroero is also the winner of another Concerto Competition with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and will be performing with the ensemble in May. Borboa, another of the Concerto Competition winners, said he is

particularly looking forward to seeing how the audience will react to the sharp contrast between the two pieces he’ll be performing. He hopes that his voice will correctly interpret the full range of emotions embedded in the text of his material. The tenor from Mexico has spent months preparing for the performance, even seeking help from instructors in Department of Russian and Slavic Studies in mirroring the tough dialect for his piece from the opera, “Eugene Onegin.” Even though he performs in concerts on a weekly basis at various Tucson venues, Borboa said that he still gets nervous before going onstage. He expects this Sunday’s performance to rouse the same amount of adrenaline, especially since he’ll be accompanied by a full orchestra. “If we can learn how to accompany each other,” Borboa said, “then that’s when the magic happens.” General admission to the concert is $10, or $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased through the College of Fine Arts box office.

Despite touring anywhere between four to six months out of the year, he’s looking forward to his latest gig in Tucson. “I’ve never played at Gem and Jam,” he said. “I’m excited.” Though the two words “gem” and “jam” have come to define the festival, White is seeking to create an experience that appeals to as wide an audience as possible. “I sort of just wanted to bring in more than just the music and more than just the gems,” White said. “I wanted to make it as diverse as possible.”

Leno says good night to ‘Tonight Show’ MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE LOS ANGELES — It’s the end for “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” After 22 years, the 63-yearold host is leaving NBC’s latenight talk show and handing over the reins to Jimmy Fallon. The Los Angeles Times recently spoke with Leno backstage at “Tonight” about his departure, his thoughts on comedy and what he’ll do next. You’ve said that leaving “Tonight” now feels “about right.” But I can’t imagine you’re happy. Leno: I’m not unhappy. This is a great franchise, and you like to keep it No. 1. I’m real proud we’ve been able to keep it No. 1. You know, there are people who like you and people who don’t

like you. “You suck, you stink.” Whatever it is. But like baseball scores, like football scores, at the end here’s the results: We’ve kept the show No. 1 for 20 years straight. And we’ve won every demographic group, all this kind of stuff. And eventually you hit diminishing returns. Look, if NBC didn’t have Jimmy Fallon in the wings, would I be here a little longer? Probably. But you know, he’s really good. I really like him. He’s a true couple of generations away from me. When I see him do his musical numbers and stuff, I say, “I can’t do that. That music is not my music.” He also plays games on the show, like “Egg Russian Roulette.” It is a different show. But I

think he’s closer to what Johnny [Carson] was when he started. So what are you going to do? I’ve always been a stand-up comedian that had a day job. This is my day job. I’ve always been on the road every single weekend and the week too since I got this job. So I’m back on the road. We leave here on the 6th. The 7th I’m in Sarasota. The 8th I’m in Clearwater. The 9th I’m in Naples, Fla. The 10th I’m in Miami. It’s what you have to do if you want to do comedy. You can’t take a year off and come back. No one’s ever taken time off as a comedian and come back and been better. It doesn’t work that way. It atrophies. You have to do it all the time.

lifestyle Let the games begin friday, february 7, 2014 • page 12 TWITTER.COM/WILDCATARTS

Five reasons why you should watch the 2014 Winter Olympics events in Sochi that don’t just have to do with sports Ashley Reid With the Sochi XXII Olympic Winter Games opening ceremony airing tonight, we’re already enthused over the trending Twitter hashtag “SochiProblems” and obsessing over the athletes participating in snowy sporting events. Besides the fact that the Olympics are a monumental event celebrated worldwide, there are many reasons why you should jump on the Winter Olympics enthusiast bandwagon.


Sochi is kind of crazy

No seriously, it is. This makes the Olympics not just about sports, but a multitude of things. The politics are complicated, there are a plethora of poor stray dogs running around and the amenities are not exactly luxurious. Journalists covering the games arrived in the Russian town a few days ago to find their hotels without doorknobs but with pink water and toilets that don’t flush. For similarly comedic/sad/crazy Olympicrelated events, scroll through the search results for Sochi on Twitter. Stacy St. Clair of the Chicago Tribune tweeted on Monday, “My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, ‘do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous.’ #Sochi2014.” Athletes, reporters and spectators beware.


Country pride

Even if you’re not exactly into sports, supporting your favorite countries is entertaining. While every nation has its issues and conflicts, the Olympics are the one time where all people unite to celebrate where they came from in the name of athletics. This opens up more opportunities to deck ourselves out in red, white and blue and sing the national anthem even louder than usual.


Winter sports are just as cool as the summer events

Summer games seem to be the gold standard when it comes to the Olympics — soccer, track and field and gymnastics usually come to mind. But having an entire set of games completely devoted to winter sports is awesome. It’s

Mcclatchy tribune

not all figure skating comparable to scenes from “Frozen” (although I really hope that someone incorporates “Let It Go” into one of their numbers). Winter games are really intense. We’re talking incredible, athletic accomplishments that take place in excruciating weather conditions. Sledding down a slope feet-first at 95 mph is no joke. Here’s to you and your incredibly dangerous sporting activity, luge participants.


The traditional aspect

This is the 22nd Winter Olympic games, which means each event is laced with pride, history and a rich sense of institution. The first “International Winter Sports Week” organized by the International Olympic Committee took place in the Alps in

Chamonix, France with 258 athletes. This year’s Olympic Games will have 2,800 athletes competing in nearly 100 events. It’s pretty amazing to think how far the games have come since their establishment in 1924.


The participating athletes represent more than sports

Have you seen that recent Guinness commercial? It tells the story of biathlete twin sisters who trained for the Olympics. One became too sick to compete and was eliminated during tryouts, so her sister made the cut and gave up her spot so the other could compete. It’s completely emotional and beautiful — especially for a beer commercial. The Olympics are so much more than

skiing and sports. They’re about passion, determination and dedication. A multitude of inspirational stories come out of the Olympic games, and this makes the events completely worth watching.

Arizona fights back to quiet the quack JAMES KELLEY After splitting his pants, Arizona men’s basketball head coach Sean Miller said he opted for “Plan B” — a T-shirt and sweat pants. Despite trailing most of the game, the No. 2 Wildcats (22-1, 9-1 Pac-12) beat Oregon 67-65 in their own version of a “Plan B.” Thursday’s game was Arizona’s first game this season without sophomore forward Brandon Ashley in the starting rotation. “It’s a lot easier to split your pants … after a win than a loss,” Miller said. He said it is not realistic to expect a team to work together for five months and to “magically insert players” and still be “that good.” “It will take some time,” Miller said, “and I believe, given that time, we will improve.” Arizona trailed by as many as seven points before pulling ahead in the last two minutes. “I consider that the image of our team,” junior guard Nick Johnson said. “We battled through adversity.” Much of the focus was on the fallen starter, Ashley. Before the game he received a standing ovation and the ZonaZoo section was chanting his name. He was also featured prominently in the pregame video on the video board, and his picture even appeared on the tickets. “I believe this was our best victory of the season based on how the game went, what the game means and playing without Brandon,” Miller said. Johnson had a game-high 18 points, which included making five of six free throws in the final minute. Oregon (15-7, 3-7), on the other hand, missed three of four free throws in the final minute. Junior guard T.J. McConnell, who visited Arizona when he was a player at Duquesne University, said the ZonaZoo is the best student section in the country and very distracting during free throws. “Playing in McKale is such an honor for a team, for a player, that you don’t ever want to lose,” Miller

said. “Tonight it was like a group effort of our crowd and our team. We were all resilient in the building, trying to will ourselves.” McConnell had six points on 2-of-9 shooting, but hit a 3-pointer to give Arizona a 62-60 lead with 1:32 left. Oregon out-rebounded Arizona 40-35, but the Wildcats had the edge in offensive rebounds, 15-13. “What looked different was when Oregon missed,” Miller said. “We weren’t as sure about getting the defensive rebound.” The “Plan B” starter, freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. He also had two blocks and a steal in a season-high 34 minutes of play. Hollis-Jefferson said he told Ashley that he would try to get as many rebounds as he could. “I did that and it felt good,” Hollis-Jefferson said. The UA shot 40 percent from the field, while the Ducks shot 42.6 percent. The — Sean Miller, Wildcats shot 54.3 percent head coach from the free throw line. Freshman forward Aaron Gordon had six points and eight rebounds, but was 2-for-11 from the free throw line. “I’m going to stay true to what I believe,” Miller said. “Aaron Gordon is a better free throw shooter than he is showing, and I believe he is going to hit his stride.” Sophomore center Kaleb Tarczewski had 12 points and seven rebounds and was 4-for-5 from the free throw line. Arizona had 32 points in the paint compared to 24 for Oregon, but the Ducks had the edge in bench points, 23-11. Miller was critical of Hollis-Jefferson for some defensive lapses, but said he expects the freshman to get better. “Rondae will grow over the next couple of weeks with more opportunity,” Miller said.

Beavers’Oregon defensive dam could hold Cats State had a rough start to the season but is now off to its best Pac-12 Conference start since 1998-99

game advantage over Oregon State in the all-time series and have beaten the Beavers in each of the last five contests. Before that, however, Oregon State had taken three from Arizona ­ — defeating the UA in both matches of 2010 and the first matchup of 2011.

evan rosenfeld Oregon State infiltrates McKale Center on Sunday night with its best conference start in 15 years. The UA should not take this game lightly, as just last week the Beavers swept the Los Angeles schools at home, which included a 71-67 win over UCLA on Sunday. Since starting conference play with a 0-2 record, Oregon State has worked its way back into the middle of the Pac-12. Going into this week’s games, Oregon State held a 5-4 record in conference matches — the first time since 1999 that the Beavers finished above .500 in their first nine conference contests. As of late, the Beavers have found a rhythm on offense. OSU is one of the hottest shooting teams in the Pac-12, and heading into its trip to Arizona is one of the best shooting teams in the conference. Oregon State’s Roberto Nelson, Eric Moreland and Hallice Cooke are some of the best conference shooters, and will be a offensive threat on Sunday. Freshman guard Cooke hasn’t had the hype that Arizona freshmen Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson have had, but Cooke has quietly emerged as one of the best freshmen in the conference, despite not being a starter or

Who to watch out for:

Roberto Nelson — senior guard — #55 — 6-foot-4; 198 pounds Nelson is a sharp-shooting, scoring machine. The Santa Barbara, Calif., native recently became the sixth Beaver to score 1,500 points in his career. Nelson scored 20-plus points in six straight contests this season and has scored double digits in more than 36 games this season.

receiving many minutes at the beginning of the season. Collier and Moreland were suspended to start the season. Collier missed only the season opener while Moreland sat out the Beaver’s first 12 games for breaking team rules. The two big

men’s presence was missed as the Beavers lost their first game to Coppin State and four of their first 12 games. It took some time for Moreland to find a role in a rotation but since returning, he has clearly been one of the best players

on the team. An established rebounder coming into his junior season, he has become one of the best in the country. Without Moreland, the Beavers would be well behind Arizona in the conference standings. The Wildcats hold a 56-20

Prior to their game Thursday at ASU, Nelson, Collier and center Angus Brandt had combined to average 48.6 points per game — the highest total by three teammates in the Pac-12.

Wildcat chat: Softball’s journalist roberto payne

& Q

Arizona softball opens its season today with the start of a three-game series against Southern Mississippi. The Wildcats host the Golden Eagles today at Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium at 6 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m. The games will be streamed live on Newfound depth and the return of redshirt senior pitcher Kenzie Fowler from injury should jumpstart the Wildcats. Fowler said she is excited to finally get back on the field after having to medical redshirt last season and answered some questions about herself and this year’s squad.


As a senior, what kind of leadership role are you going to undertake this year? There are five seniors, me being obviously the oldest. From us seniors, and combining with the juniors, we have a good core of upperclassmen that have been there before … and can lead the new girls.

Why did you become a journalism major and how has that shaped your interactions with the media? I kind of became a journalism major because I gave so many interviews my freshman year when we were at the [Women’s College] World Series. I thought all the sports

journalism was really interesting. It’s weird being on both sides, but it’s been a cool major. Have you given any thought to what you want to do after softball is over? Hopefully a career in sports media. Whether it’s in front of the camera, behind the camera … there’s a lot of options I have. I think I want to do too many things, so I need to kind of focus it down to one thing. But it is coming; softball will end at some point. Hopefully not too soon.

Arizona vs. Oregon State Oregon State had a nice home victory over UCLA last week. The Beavers have to be feeling pretty confident. The Wildcats and their defense will bring them back to reality. Arizona’s defense is a lot better than the Bruins, even without Brandon Ashley. It’ll be close until the second half.

Arizona vs. Oregon State The two games against the Oregon Schools (Oregon and Oregon State) are vital to see what kind of team Arizona is without Brandon Ashley. The Fighting Craig Robinsons’ victory over UCLA last week is promising, but the Beavers won’t get the same result against the Wildcats. Arizona 70, Oregon State 58

jumping, I think I have to go with the American Anders Johnson. Three reasons why: He’s American with a Europeansounding first name, he shares a first name with a character in “Workaholics” and most importantly he’s from New York, where it snows, so I’m pretty confident he has at least practiced. Anders Johnson (United States) Ladies Slopestyle snowboarding This one is easy. In Ladies Slopestyle you have to go with Kjersti Østgaard Buaas of Norway. She’s 32 years old with only a Bronze Medal from the 2006 Winter Olympics to her name — it’s her time. By the way, she also won that Bronze Medal a week after breaking her leg. What a monster. But more importantly, she has the coolest name. I’m not sure how to pronounce any part of it, and that “Ø” in her middle name, bossy. Kjersti Østgaard Buaas (Norway)

Men’s Normal Hill Individual ski jump Fair warning: In no way am I an expert on some of the events at the Winter Olympics. The men’s normal hill individual ski jump is one of the few events that I’ve actually heard of. Simon Ammann of Switzerland heads to Sochi as the favorite for the event and is my pick to win. Simon Ammann (Switzerland) Ladies Slopestyle snowboarding The women’s snowboarding slopestyle final takes place Sunday and should be a competitive event. Anna Gasser of Austria and Jamie Anderson of the United States posted great scores during the qualification heats. I wouldn’t be surprised if either won the event. I’m picking Anderson to win one for the good ole USA. Jamie Anderson (United States)

Men’s Normal Hill Individual ski jump Nicholas Alexander seems to know what he’s doing when it comes to ski jumping. I mean, he’s from America, so why wouldn’t he, right? If I had money I would bet lots of it towards his success during the normal hill ski jumping event. Nicholas Alexander (United States)

Arizona vs. Oregon State Oregon State didn’t beat Arizona last season, and I’m positive it won’t beat them Arizona season, either, especially because Arizona’s playing at home. After the loss against Cal, its team should be pretty pumped up to get back to a winning streak. Arizona 80, Oregon State 74

Ladies Slopestyle snowboarding I’m rooting for one of the youngest American athletes in the Olympics this year, Ty Walker. She’s a 16-year-old Olympian who previously left a field hockey career to follow her snowboarding dreams. I don’t even know this girl and I already think she’s the coolest ever.
