Countdown dinner - Wisdom's Cafe

CBC participants -

The countdown dinner is often the most exciting part of the day!  Teams will each have a chance to tell exciting events that happened as well as any notable bird sightings.  Having a warm place with good food is crucial to this end of the day activity which is why I am happy to announce that Wisdom's Cafe has graciously offered to host our count-off dinner this season!  If you've never been here before I can highly recommend!  It's delicious authentic Mexican cuisine at its finest!

Check out their website for the menu.

They are located 3 miles south of Tubac and 1500 feet north of the Tumacacori Mission, on the east side of the road. Take the Tumacacori/Carmen exit and head north on the east side frontage road. This exit is just 9 minutes south of the Amado Exit for those covering the west side of the circle and escaping via Arivaca Road rather than the Ruby Road exit on I-19.

The restaurant opens at 5:00p.m. so you can arrive anytime after that.  I will try my best to arrive by 6:00p.m. shortly after which I will begin the count-off.
