As Irene Messina would say, this came in too late for inclusion in the print issue (which is a mere 184 pages this week).
My name is Carsten Nielsen. I am the new owner of the former Best Western Executive Inn. We are now called the Executive Inn & Suites of Tucson.
The reason for this e-mail is that we are having an event on Friday, Sept. 28, 2007. Local DJ Alan Michaels is going to be hosting a "Kick Back With Cool' happy hour featuring a lot of golden oldies. We are new to Tucson (bought the hotel in January). In our research we discovered that the Drachman, Oracle and Stone Area was a very hip and happening place back in the '50s, '60s and '70s.
The city is trying to revitalize the area with the "Rio Nuevo" project, and we are doing our part to get people into the area. We have done numerous renovations to the hotel, and believe we have a beautiful property.
So, there ya go. The Executive Inn and Suites is located at 333 W. Drachman St.
