Student council brings back ball

VOLUME 107 • ISSUE 137

BREAKING BREAD The Rev. Bart Hutcherson will leave his post as head pastor of the Newman Center after 10 years



BY JORDAN FOWLER The Daily Wildcat

Engineering students will be putting down the books and putting on masks for a night. The UA’s Engineering Student Council is holding a ball for the first time since the 1990s on May 10, according to Ari Auerbach, a chemical engineering sophomore and the social outreach chair for the ESC . The ball, which will be held at the Arizona Historical Society, is masquerade-themed and will be open to all students, said Ericka Tucker, a mining engineering sophomore. There will be food, dancing and photos, and guests 21 and over can purchase a wristband to gain access to the open bar. The ball is supposed to be a fun social event that will give everyone a chance to relax, Auerbach said. “The whole goal of Engineering Student Council is to give engineers an opportunity to do something social,” Auerbach said. “We do so much studying that … we deserve a night off.” ESC had some trouble finding a place to hold the ball due to limited funds, Tucker said. ESC is not funded by the College of Engineering, so the main fundraiser for the event was the Engineering Career Fair. ESC decided to hold the event at the Arizona Historical Society, which gave it a great deal because it is affiliated with the UA, Tucker said. The ball, which used to be an annual event for ESC, stopped being held when the council lost momentum back in the 1990s, according to Auerbach. This is the first year that ESC has made a big comeback on campus, Auerbach added. While in the past, members of ESC seemed to join just to include it on their résumé, this year saw more motivated people join ESC with a legitimate interest in making it better, he said. The ball is entirely run by ESC . The DJ is a member of the Freshman Engineering Council and the photographer is the


We do so much studying that ... we deserve a night off.

for other UA students’ start-up companies, such as NoteBowl. The current layout is being developed by Jenny Wendt, a UA alumna. Rao said Wendt is working to help make the app look better for the soft launch this week. Rao said that his background in MIS has really helped throughout the process. Rao also credits the Eller College of Management for helping motivate him in all the classes he’s taken. “Being in a business environment and hearing about start ups and companies [that] succeed and fail, it’s just nice to get an input from the business background,” Rao said. Francisco Almada, a pre-business freshman, said he agrees that Eller helps prepare prospective entrepreneurs through specific classes. “How you finish with school can directly determine if you will succeed in starting your own business,” Almada said. “The struggle won’t necessarily be starting it, but whether or you are able to make money and able to pay off your student loans.” Almada said he also hopes to eventually start a web app. Other departments around the UA are also helping students develop web apps. The School of Journalism has classes on multimedia and entrepreneurial web apps taught by Mike McKisson, an assistant professor of journalism. McKisson said the entrepreneurial class teaches students to start thinking about opportunities in the news marketplace, and using their skills to possibly create a company rather than working for a traditional newspaper. The mobile web app classes teach students in-depth programming, encoding and how to launch their own websites. “What I find often is that students get bogged down with classes that some of their creations go by [the] wayside because of next semester,” McKisson said. “My goal is to give them skills so they can do it again.” Before graduation, Rao said, his goal is to obtain 1,500 users on Channel Links. “I have really high hopes to pursue this,” Rao said. “I’ve gone through a lot of trouble doing this, I wouldn’t have intentions of doing it if I knew it was going nowhere.” McKisson said there are very few business successes that happen overnight. In reality, he said, companies have to work very hard at first without money in order to succeed. He advises enterprising students to talk to as many people as they can and utilize all available resources. “It’s not something that’s easy, but for a person with the right mindset and drive, starting their own company is great,” McKisson said. “There is no better time for young people to start their own companies.”

THE REV. BARTHOLOMEW Hutcherson baptizes Desmond Ondoua, a UA psychology student, during Easter Vigil Service at St. Thomas More Catholic Newman Center on Saturday evening.



Michael Fritz, a geosciences junior, has worked with Hutcherson on the leadership team at the Newman Center for the past three years and said he has enjoyed learning and working alongside him. “He always has energy, always is thinking of the students, and puts them number one,” Fritz said. During his time at the Newman Center, Hutcherson said, he worked constantly to connect to as many different groups at the university as he could. He has participated in several social justice programs, connecting students with diverse backgrounds and beliefs. “He gives ideas to build the community and make it stronger,” said Rachel Carnicle, a biology

After visiting his family in Alabama for a few months, Hutcherson said he will travel to Israel for four months to study scripture, and continue on to Spain, where he plans to study Spanish for six months. While in Spain, Hutcherson will walk the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage, from the Pyrenees Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean. “There will never be enough words to thank him for the role he has played in my life or in those of other Newman parishioners,” Webb said. “We won’t be the same without him.”

For finals, earlier is not better BY brittany rudolph The Daily Wildcat


inals week. Are there any other words in the English language that, when strung together, have the power to cause so much stress? As difficult as it might be to believe, finals will be here in just a few short weeks. Exams are lurking right around the corner. No one likes having to look up the UA finals schedule. We don’t enjoy acknowledging that despite the summer vacation weather, we have some hoops to jump through before the semester concludes. However, despite the unpleasant realization that we do indeed have to take final exams, there’s one glimmer of light in the darkness: The finals schedule itself. The tests are unavoidable, but at least the way the university runs finals week provides more time to study. However, this year, I’m not so lucky. I have three finals on May 1. Finals week officially begins on May 9. What’s going on here? Professors sometimes hold finals early in order to make students’ lives easier, but doing so only makes the week before finals more hectic. Professors’ deviation from this schedule can cause a lot of unnecessary, unintended stress. At the UA, we have a classic case of the road to hell being paved with good intentions. Professors hold final exams early with a kind idea in mind. By giving the exams to us before the ever-ominous finals week, professors think they can help us avoid days crammed with multiple tests. Perhaps holding early tests sometimes goes well, but when multiple professors have the same idea, such plans fail. Students are still overloaded with work, the work just happens to be given much earlier, without the added benefit of having finished classes. Students always run the risk of having multiple tests close together during finals week itself, but when that happens, we have more time to prepare. Even if all of a student’s exams were given on the very first day of finals week, we would still have Reading Day to study. Unquestionably, part of college is learning time-management skills and how to balance multiple obligations at one time. However, courses put so much emphasis on final exams that these tests often have the power to determine over one-third of our final grades. As a result, we need all the help we can get when it comes to finals. Adhering to the university-wide finals schedule seems to be the best move. That way, if a student does happen to have more than three exams in one day, university final exam policy at least allows the student the opportunity to take the fourth on a different day. This policy only applies to finals week, so it’s important that the tests be offered then. The Office of the Registrar sets the finals schedule well in advance. It enables students to immediately know when their finals will be held, as early as a semester before the exam is actually given. Thus, students can plan in advance. The information is clear and easy to find. However, the schedule is rendered pointless when professors don’t follow it. The same should be true for other types of finals. Finals are not always administered in the form of a classic test, complete with a scantron and number two pencil. Instead, we’re often required to write papers and do special projects. Different forms of finals provide diverse opportunities to showcase knowledge, but they should all have to comply with the finals schedule, regardless of type. We need the extra days provided during the designated finals week in order to perfect whatever projects we might have. Requiring students to both take and turn in finals early is tempting, but simply sticking with what the university already has planned is easiest and fairest for all. Conformity doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.

Going off the grid: Escaping society won’t save the planet engineer new ways to make clean energy affordable to those who can’t drop out of society to pursue a personal ideology that confuses selfishness with concern for the environment. There are plenty of people making a difference on behalf of the environment who haven’t felt the urge to drop off the face of the earth. Can you imagine if someone like Elon Musk, CEO and mastermind behind Tesla Motors, decided to live off the grid instead of working toward a social revolution? Musk is making a huge impact on the way we think about cars and the automotive industry, something he absolutely could only have accomplished as a part of society. It might be tempting to turn to the idea of off-grid living, because it does offer an interesting alternative to the rat race we all feel caught up in sometimes. However, my interest in such an alternative lifestyle dwindled when I realized that my goal in life was not to make a self-satisfied claim about my carbon footprint, but to make a tangible impact in some way or another. That’s not something that can be accomplished by living an off-the-grid lifestyle. Withdrawing from society to chase a selfish ideology isn’t the way to change the environmental disaster we’ve gotten ourselves into. We have a collective problem that needs a collective voice to remedy it, not a fragmented, self-righteous counter-culture.

The more you know about sexuality’s different facets, the more you will be precaution[ed] about who you are having sexual encounters with, you’ll ask the right questions and be firm, and you’ll know how to make a relationship work and stay healthy whether your partner has an STD or if both of you have an STD. Communication and education are the perfect duo. In reminds me of this website I found called PositiveSingles. I thought it was very progressive to create a space for people

with STD’s where they can feel that they still have a shot at love and even create friendships. It’s easy to give up on a social life when you feel that people will be quick on judging you when you inform them that you have an STD or treat you strangely. There is nothing better than being understood and not feeling like you’re the black sheep. — Sam From “Campaign cash poor substitute for free speech” (by Eric Klump, April 17) People might think they’re being for equality by limiting campaign budgets, but in reality, they’re limiting the free speech of the citizen and the individual right to support whatever cause

they want. That freedom is up to the individual. Eric, you pointed it out yourself that they earned it and spend it whatever you want. The problem with the left-wing is that they don’t care about campaign donations, as long as it’s to their cause. People like them preach tolerance and equality, but when in reality they’re absent-minded elitists that wouldn’t know. Eric, get a grip on reality. The fact is that 14 of the top 25 political contributors are labor unions. It’s funny how the Left likes the idea of flag-burning, funeral protests, and desecrating holy objects but somehow think it’s offensive (for them) to ban campaign donations that hurt, not help, their side. Stop whining and raise your own money! Free speech is free speech. Though it can be perceived as immoral, it definitely shouldn’t be illegal. What’s the legal difference between financially supporting a political campaign

and a campaign that stops breast cancer? On face, it’s just two different subject topics. There is nothing unlawful about that. This piece in the Daily Wildcat doesn’t actually argue about the influence of money so much, but makes an attack on where the money lands. The reason why campaign finance reform is such a hot topic for Democrats is mainly because campaign finance was where Republicans typically had the advantage. In addition, the author fails to recognize that by lifting such an infringement on such liberties, the government loses out because it doesn’t have leverage against corporations and businesses. Overall, I think such a sophomoric piece (and its associated argument) needs to recognize the big picture of the decision and stop thinking that it’s going to hurt everyone when in reality liberates them. — FreeThinker

Three amigos

A UA student was diverted through the Dean of Students Office for smoking marijuana on the west side of Arizona Stadium on April 12. A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the stadium at around 1:30 a.m. after receiving a report that people were smoking marijuana on picnic benches there. As the officer identified the three students, he could smell burnt marijuana and noticed a joint lying on the ground. The officer placed the joint on the table as another officer interviewed the three students. After confirming that they knew what diversion was, the three students were diverted to the Dean of Students for possession of marijuana.


Buddy system

A UA student was diverted for minor in possession of alcohol on April 12. A UAPD officer went to the Biological Sciences West building at 5:13 p.m. after receiving a report that someone in the area appeared highly intoxicated. The officer found the reported person on the north side of Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. He was staggering heavily and was unable to walk in a straight line. The officer instructed the student to sit down on the sidewalk and assisted him. The student rolled backward into a bush as he tried to stand up, and the officer helped him to an upright position. The student’s eyes appeared red and watery, his lips were dry and his speech was very slurred. When asked if he had been drinking, the student said he had only had a few beers. Medical personnel came to evaluate the intoxicated student and said he was fine to go back to his room in Coronado Residence Hall if a friend could come to take him and watch over him for the night. A friend came and escorted him to his room, and a Dean of Students Office referral was completed for the intoxicated student.

rizona baseball’s road trip to Los Angeles this weekend was an opportunity for the team to continue their upward trajectory. The Wildcats, who had previously won five of their past six games, came to USC’s Dedeaux Field with momentum but returned to Tucson licking their wounds after being swept by the Trojans . Arizona’s bats fell silent against USC starters Wyatt Strahan and Bob Wheatley on Thursday and Saturday, resulting in shutouts. Strahan outdueled Wildcat ace James Farris and pitched a complete game — limiting Arizona to just five hits while striking out eight. Strahan only allowed one hit after the fourth inning. On Saturday, Wheatley put in seven strong innings of work and allowed Arizona just two hits. Although Arizona’s pitching was respectable and did all it could to match up with the Trojans, Arizona’s inability to convert two-out hits played a large factor in its demise. The Wildcats were outscored 8-4 on the weekend after putting up nine runs the weekend before. On Friday night, Arizona’s offense struggled, going 1-for10 with runners on base and stranding 16 base runners over the weekend. USC, on the other hand, scored three runs in two-out situations and went 6-for-17 with runners on base on Friday. Timely hitting, a skill that has been absent for most of the season, continued to elude the Wildcats as the Trojans outhit them 28-12 over the series. Even though the UA was able to set the table, execution was the kiss of death, and simply put, the main reason for the series loss was that Arizona couldn’t finish. Thursday and Saturday’s games were pitchers’ duels, with one inning determining the outcome of the game.

Wildcats earn senior day upsets BY MATT WALL

The Daily Wildcat

No. 31 Arizona women’s tennis upset archrival No. 22 ASU 4-2 on senior day at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center on Saturday. The Wildcats finished the season undefeated at home, a proud accomplishment for seniors Lacey Smyth, Akilah James, Kim Stubbe and Susan Mc Rann. “We look forward to this match all season, and to end it the way that we did was such an amazing feeling,” Smyth said. “We lost to them last year, so to get some revenge on our home court on Senior Day, you can’t ask for anything else.” The Sun Devils took the doubles point quickly, forcing the Wildcats to fight back in singles. “We started off with doubles just a little bit shaky and didn’t really go after our chances,” Stubbe said. “As soon as we were down, we didn’t let it affect us, and we just kicked butt in singles.” In singles matches, Stubbe defeated No. 51 Desirae Krawczyk 6-3, 6-2, and sophomore Shayne Austin defeated Ebony Panoho 6-3, 6-2. Once No. 74 freshman Lauren Marker fell to Kassidy Jump 3-6, 3-6, all three remaining matches went into third-set tiebreakers. Coming out on top were No. 58 Lacey Smyth and junior Laura Oldham, who were able to secure the victory for the Wildcats as their matches finished 4-6, 6-1, 7-6 (7-3) and 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, respectively. “I did not know that [my match] was the match point for the whole match,” Smyth said. “Having everybody there really calmed my nerves because I got more confidence, and being able to close that out and have everyone come running over was incredible.” For Smyth, it was her fourth win over a ranked player at the No. 1 spot this season. However, the Wildcats’ strength over other teams has come from the players at the five and six positions. “Winning at five and six has really been all the difference for us,” head coach Vicky Maes said. “To be undefeated and to beat ASU in this kind of

way, I couldn’t be more thrilled.” The win narrowed the Sun Devils’ lead in the Territorial Cup, a competition between the schools’ athletic departments, to 7.5 to 7. The men’s team upset No. 53 Utah 4-1 on Friday on its senior day. The match marked the last time that seniors Dominic Bermudez, Kieren Thompson and Mario Urquidi will play at Robson. Starting off fast on doubles, Urquidi and Thompson defeated Ben Tasevac and Devin Lane 8-2. Junior Sumeet Shinde and sophomore Naoki Takeda defeated Slim Hanza and Cedric Willems 8-5, clinching the doubles point for the Wildcats. Arizona fought hard in singles, clinching every

match except for the No. 6 position, when Matt Cowley defeated Robin Chou 6-4, 6-3. “This was huge,” head coach Tad Berkowitz said in a press release. “The guys have been through so much this year, but they’ve continued to fight. They never give up, and it showed today. Utah is a good team.” Up next, the both teams will head to Ojai, Calif., to compete in the Pac-12 Championships. The men will face Utah in the first round.

track & field

UA shines on West, East coasts BY luke della

The Daily Wildcat

This past weekend, the Arizona Wildcats’ track and field teams split up to compete in the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif., and the LSU Alumni Gold in Baton Rouge, La. Despite being on opposite sides of the country, both the No. 19 Wildcats men’s and No. 10 women’s teams had overall strong weekends. Most notably, senior Nick Ross won the high jump in Louisiana with a season-best clearance of 7-5, while on the West Coast, junior Elvin Kibet ran a personal best of 32:40.22 in the women’s 10K. “I thought we competed extremely well,” head coach Fred Harvey said in a press release following Arizona’s day at LSU’s Bernie Moore Track Stadium. “I always want to see how our team reacts coming to a place like this and competes against this level of competition. Everybody was really steady, which means a lot at this level.” Ross’ jump is the second-highest and Kibet’s time is the second-fastest in the country this year. With the Pac-12 Championships and NCAA Championships quickly approaching, the positive results from this weekend are confidence boosters for the two athletes. “It gives me confidence at those bars around 7-5, so that going into the NCAA Championships, I’ll be ready for those 7-7 and 7-8 bars,” Ross said. “Overall, I felt good; the track was really fast and really springy.” Ross, though, is still shooting for higher marks. His jump this weekend, which came on his first

Arizona redshirt junior Elvin Kibet ran a personalbest time of 32:40.22 in the women’s 10K “invitational elite section” at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif. Her time was the second best in Wildcat history, No. 2 in the country, best in the west region and No. 1 in the Pac-12 this year.

attempt, was his second-highest jump of all time. He added that following the competition, his goal is to jump 7-7 by the end of the season. Kibet’s time was a personal best and was just nine seconds off of the Arizona record. The fast time was a slight surprise to the redshirt junior, who has been battling injuries.

“I didn’t think I could run that fast today,” Kibet said. “My plan was just to stay with the leading pack and see what I can do. I am so happy to be injury free and healthy, and I am not taking that for granted. I definitely appreciate it.” Back in Louisiana, five other Wildcats had personal-best marks. Sophomore Nnenya Hailey clocked a personal-best time of 57.07 in the 400-meter hurdles, and sophomore Morgan Struble ran a 59.33 also in the 400 hurdles in section “B.” In the men’s shot put, freshman Aaron Castle took second place with a personal-best toss of 60-5.75. In the men’s hammer throw, Jordan Young took first with a personal-best of 224-0. The throw is also the third-farthest in school history. On the women’s side, sophomore Gia Trevisan clocked a person-best time of 55.99 in the women’s 400-meter race. The time was good enough for sixth place in section “B.” Finally senior Amber Passalaqua had a personal best in the 100-meter hurdles. Her time of 13.98 was fast enough for eighth place in section “B.” Passalaqua, a heptathlete, also long jumped this weekend. Her mark of 19-0.75 is the second-best all-conditions mark of her career. The jump got her third place in the open section. “I’m feeling pretty confident,” Passalaqua said. “I still feel like I have more left in me, so I’m hoping at our dual meet, I can get a couple more personal bests to prepare myself for the next heptathlon.” — Follow Luke Della @LukeDella

column from page 6

On Saturday, no runs were scored until the home half of the seventh inning, when USC pushed across two after consecutive singles and a two-out double opened the floodgates. Arizona was unable to retaliate. Wildcat runners never made it past first base, and USC silenced any threats from Arizona, allowing no hits in six at-bats with runners on base. The Wildcats’ rotation looked better than usual, however, with senior Farris and sophomore Tyger Talley both putting in quality starts despite suffering losses. Farris nearly matched Strahan and went eight innings strong with six strikeouts on Thursday, while Talley threw six innings of scoreless ball before allowing two Trojans to cross the plate in the seventh on Saturday. With tough series coming up against ASU, Oregon and Stanford, the Wildcats will need to pull themselves together if they want to earn a postseason spot. Currently, if Arizona drops another series, any hopes of the playoffs will likely end, and the Wildcats will have to look toward next year to achieve their goal of playing baseball in June. — Follow Evan Rosenfeld @EvanRosenfeld17

sand volleyball

Arizona loses a couple close matches in LA BY tyler keckeisen The Daily Wildcat

Arizona sand volleyball ended its threematch losing streak with a 3-2 win over Cal Poly in the morning match at the Pac12 Invitational in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday. However, the Wildcats fell 3-2 to No. 8 Loyola Marymount and 3-2 to ASU in later matches. “I like how we competed,” head coach Steve Walker said. “Regardless of the score, the effort was there, as they stayed composed throughout the afternoon. We just couldn’t come through down the stretch in some key points of our matches.” Freshmen Madison Witt and McKenna Witt, at the No. 1 team position, clinched the victory for the Wildcats against the Mustangs by defeating Katie Conroy and Jennifer Keddy, 21-17, 21-17. Arizona (7-10) dropped its first two

matches to Loyola Marymount, but came back and tied the last match at 2-2 with wins from juniors Madi Kingdon and Ronni Lewis, and juniors Taylor Arizobal and Allie Cook. Loyola Marymount is in its third season, and Walker praised how well the LMU coaches have developed their players. Walker said the Lions don’t have a lot of sand-only players. “They have really hit their strides as a sand program now,” Walker said. “The coaches have dedicated almost their entire spring of getting their indoor players or crossover players prepared for this season of finding their rhythm. They were playing some exceptional volleyball, and we pushed them to the brink in today’s matchup and came up short.” The match against ASU came down to a final three-set match again. The Sun Devils’ No. 1 duo of Bianca Arellano and Bethany Jorgensen won 27-25, 25-27, 15-11 against

the Witt twins. Arizona is 1-1 against its rivals this season. Walker said the Wildcats were too impatient and had too many fatal errors. “Being aggressive at times when we shouldn’t have been with our shot-making hurt us the most,” Walker said. “We can compete with any mid-level team at this point of the season, just knocking on the door of the programs that are ranked and established still gives us trouble. At critical junctures of the play, we cannot just … revert to some of the problems we had earlier in the year.” Arizona finished Sunday on a high note. Kingdon and Lewis made it to the finals of the Pairs Tournament, before losing to USC’s top-seeded duo, Kirby Burnham and Sara Hughes, 21-12, 21-17. Courtesy of Arizona athletics

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships Take a stand against sexual violence at Take Back The Night. 4/22 • 4:30-8pm • Women’s Plaza


I think that I enjoy sex less when I’m under stress, which seems to have negative repercussions. Usually I feel tired or more anxious about the stress I was trying to avoid in the first place, and end up functioning worse. Is this normal?

A. Although other sexual health issues may grab more headlines, the effect of stress on sex is a very common concern that almost everyone faces at some point. As an unavoidable fact of life, stress takes a toll on us both emotionally and physically. And while it’s far from the only thing stress affects, few things are as uniquely sensitive to our emotional and physical balance as sex. We all know that some amount of stress is normal, but when stress begins to pile up, it can create a negative cycle that takes away our desire for sex as well as the enjoyment we derive from it. In this cycle, anxiety from other areas negatively impacts our sex lives, and feeling “sexless” in turn reinforces that anxiety. To further compound the issue, frustrations about

sexual performance in the midst of this stress tends to make matters worse. The best way to deal with these concerns is to target the sources of stress, instead of hoping that sex itself might serve as a way out. Be honest with the fact that you don’t feel sexual at the moment. By effectively addressing the factors that create stress, you will find that those emotions will come back in due time. Keep in mind that remedies for stress are all around you. Adequate sleep, plenty of exercise, a healthy diet, and time management are all good places to start. If relationship or family matters are contributing to stress, or if you just want someone to talk to, a counselor can help.

Proper provides very happy hour BY Tatiana Tomich

The Daily Wildcat

Proper Tucson, one of downtown’s newest eateries, recently added an element to its already-unique dining experience that gives patrons one more reason to stop in and try some delectable “bites.” Its newly opened patio seating area features an outdoor bar, giving the restaurant an airy, open feel and creating an opportunity for guests to enjoy the springtime weather. “It adds a whole new element,” said Kim Bower, Proper Tucson’s general manager. “It’s super inviting.” A seat in the afternoon sunshine and a very reasonably priced happy hour are what attracted a group of students the Monday following the patio’s opening. During “bites,” Proper Tucson’s name for its happy hour from 3-5 p.m. and 10 p.m.-midnight, all cocktails, craft beers and wines are $2 off, as is everything on a designated menu. The restaurant’s selection of beers and wines are all sourced locally, and all of its liquors are from small distilleries and/or infused in house. Katya Heffner, a visitor from Los Angeles, ordered the “Porch Tea” as recommended by the bartender. This specialty cocktail is crafted from house-made black teainfused vodka, citrus and simple syrup, with a rosemary garnish. “It was refreshing and really one of a kind,” Heffner said. The bartender crafted a specialty drink off the menu for Heffner’s companion, Heidi Jaenicke, a senior studying journalism and Spanish. Jaenicke said she liked Arnold Palmers and voila! In front of her appeared an Arnold Palmer look-alike — except with a little more bite. “It was delicious,” Jaenicke said. “It was just like an alcoholic Arnold Palmer. The perfect combination of zesty, sweet and alcoholic-y.”

Sammi Sefton, bartender at Proper Tucson, makes “Porch Tea” on Thursday at the restaurant downtown. The cocktail is made with house-infused black tea-infused vodka, citrus, rosemary and simple syrup. Proper Tucson’s happy hour, called “bites,” takes place from 3-5 p.m. and 10 p.m.-midnight every day.

The two ordered food off of the “bites” menu to take advantage of the happy-hour deal. Both started off with salads: One with the “Proper Salad,” a nice combination of greens, vinaigrette and tiny pieces of sweet and tangy bee pollen, the other with the “Baby Kale” salad, comprised of kale, farro, parmesan, almonds and a thick lemon-garlic vinaigrette. The winner between the two was definitely the “Proper Salad,” but both were said to be good. “We try to highlight our local vendors,” Bower said about the fresh, and sometimes unusual

ingredients that make up each item on the menu. “Everything we have is based from farms around town.” Heffner rounded out her meal by ordering the ricotta gnocchi, a dish that Bower recommended, saying that it is one of the most popular. “It was really good,” Heffner said. “It wasn’t too rich, but was still filling.” Made with oyster mushrooms, arugula, creme fraiche and lemon oil, the potato pasta comes off of the restaurant’s “small plate” menu. However, Bower said the

dish is big enough to be “a meal in itself.” The idea behind the menu, especially the “small plates” section, is that people can order a few different items and share so that they are able to have a wide sampling of what Proper has to offer. Another popular item on the menu is the risotto, Bower said, which changes every day depending on what ingredients are in season and what is in stock. The main concept that drives Proper is keeping everything on the menu local, fresh and sustainable, so

that all of the profit supports the local economy. It was Jaenicke’s second time at Proper and she said the laidback, casual environment, along with the great food and reasonable prices, will keep her coming back. Proper is a nice addition to downtown’s new “up and coming” vibe, adding to the line of restaurants down Congress Street with quality food, craft cocktails and a modern, yet comfortable feel. — Follow Tatiana Tomich @xoTatianaTom

hen the men from indie-rock band Bombay Bicycle Club stepped on Club Congress’ stage Friday night with guitars in hand, the venue sold out, all standing audience members hollered and clapped with excitement. There was a moment directly preceding the headlining act’s appearance on stage that concert enthusiasts might well recognize, when anticipation filled the art-decorated rock club. The four men, all 24 or under, opened with the upbeat song “It’s Alright Now,” the second track from their most recent album, So Long, See You Tomorrow. Each member wore a simple black button-up shirt, initially appearing as silhouettes against the yellow and red flashing stage lights. The night did not lack energy, due to the band’s passionate playing. Frontman Jack Steadman took center stage, rocking a redstrapped guitar. To his right, guitarist/vocalist Jamie MacColl danced or jumped about onstage. Bassist Ed Nash’s shoulder-length hair whipped around between the blinking of strobe lights. Drummer Suren de Saram may have been the least visible onstage between the fog and lights, but his tempo was the cause of the audience’s clapping hands. When the band welcomed to the stage backing vocalist Liz Lawrence, who is touring with Bombay Bicycle Club, the harmonies took on an even deeper emotional quality. After Lawrence’s introduction, the band

began with the harmony-rich song “Home By Now.” In one of the most moving moments of the night, Steadman stepped away from the microphone at the song’s end and the audience collectively continued, echoing the lyrics. Audience members’ heads nodded and swayed just as much to the electric songs from the band’s recent fourth album as to some of its older material. When Steadman repeated lyrics from “Evening/Morning,” a song off Bombay Bicycle Club’s 2009 album, the audience’s appreciation was evident as people clapped and sung along. As Bombay Bicycle Club seemed to finish its set, cheering turned to chanting for one more song. After a few moments, the band returned to stage with blue lights and drums pounding, Steadman greeting the enthusiasm of the audience by saying, “This is definitely the friendliest city we’ve been to in a while.” Steadman wrote and produced all the songs on Bombay Bicycle Club’s most recent album. After the show, he took a few minutes from the group with vinyl or T-shirts in hand to be signed, speaking in his British accent about how important it was for the band to enjoy the performance, especially in a city they’ve never before visited. “I think the audience can tell we’re having a good time on stage,” Steadman said. “Hopefully that’s infectious.” — Follow Chelsey Wade @DailyWildcat
