Casbah Teahouse, 64th restaurant to close in Tucson
The vegetarian Casbah Teahouse had operated for 14 years on Tucson's artsy-craftsy 4th Avenue. I was back there on a vacation visit when I took this photo on Feb. 24; my plan to have lunch at the Casbah was obviously scuttled, as the windows were plastered with legal notices from the landlord that had apparently just gone up. I don't know if the count of restaurant closings is accurate, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is.
