When an uneven distribution of mosh pits causes the Earth's axis to flip Antarctica-over-Alaska, breakfast will become the frumpy finale of the day instead of its roaring opener. Enjoy breakfast's treasured time slot while you still can with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of breakfast fare at Sky Bar on North 4th Avenue.
Harnessing the powerful particles from the sun's generous rays, Sky Bar whips up simple breakfast fare in a laidback café fueled entirely by solar energy. Famished foodies can order up a breakfast calzone filled with potatoes, eggs, and cheese with an optional helping of bacon and sausage to steady minds after nightmares about being eaten by a giant, pancake-stuffed stromboli ($4). Caffeine enthusiasts can select from an array of hot java beverages, including coffee ($1), espresso ($1), latte ($1.50), and mocha ($1.50). Patrons can use the free wireless Internet to play hooky from work while sipping on a berry smoothie ($4) and snacking on a crumbly scone ($1.50).
- Tucson’s only astronomy-themed drinking venue, is a coffee shop by day, a planetarium by evening and a swank lounge by night. – Andi Berlin, Metromix
Consecrated to the cosmos, Sky Bar is a solar-powered café in the daytime and an astronomy-themed bar by night. The café's solar installation uses 323 solar panels to eschew the consumption of fossil fuels and help keep the planet healthy. At night, the focus turns to celestial bodies other than our own, as images from the bar's rooftop telescope are projected inside to create a cosmic ambiance. On open-mic nights, local and traveling musicians take the stage under the auspices of host DJ Odious, whose vinyl collection includes a 7-inch cut from Saturn's rings.
