Experience Tucson's exotic flavors! Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, Tucson Meet Yourself Folklore and Tucson Weekly invite the public to support local nonprofits and ethnic eateries.
Tucsonans have an opportunity to travel to the Mediterranean, Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and other exotic cultures... through their taste buds.
Culture is cooking on the city's culinary scene, and now foodies can eat up the ethnic diversity, sometimes hidden, throughout town with Tucson's CHOW CARD.
Tucson's 2012 CHOW CARD serves two meals for the price of one at more than 15 locally owned, authentically ethnic and culturally diverse restaurants.
The card, in partnership with Tucson Weekly, is valid through Oct. 31, 2012 and benefits the efforts of two local nonprofit organizations that have worked to preserve cultural encounters for the community.
Chow cards are $20 per card, and proceeds support the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance and Tucson Meet Yourself Folklife Festival.
Cardholders can savor the flavors of India, Mexico, China, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Greece and the Mediterranean, Thailand, Peru, Jamaica and Vietnam.

About the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance
Organization History The Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance (SAACA) grew out of the Greater Oro Valley Arts Council (GOVAC), an organization established in 1997 to provide artistic and cultural opportunities for residents of northwest Tucson. GOVAC eventually became one of the largest arts organizations in the region. In 2009, owing to its success, the group expanded its mission to include creation of partnerships with business, governments, and communities throughout Southern Arizona that would encourage innovative, creative cultural expression in the arts for years to come.
