What we're about

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS GROUP, PLEASE MESSAGE THE ORGANIZER PRIOR TO APPLYING FOR MEMBERSHIP

THIS GROUP WILL TAKE YOU AROUND THE WORLD!

“WORLDLY FRIENDS IN TUCSON” is a group of individuals with vast, interesting and colorful worldly experiences. Each member brings in many fascinating stories. During our Meet-Up’s, we will look forward to exchanging those stories, and sharing exciting life events over a toast, a laugh, a tale…

THIS IS NOT A TRAVEL, EXPAT OR INTERNATIONAL THEME GROUP

WE DO, HOWEVER, SEEK WELL TRAVELED, EDUCATED, SOPHISTICATED MEMBERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, WHO APPRECIATE LUXURY AND REFINED THINGS IN THEIR LIFESTYLE, AND ENJOY TALKING ABOUT THEM!
Thus, individuals in search of "worldly things", as opposed to "spiritual things". Something beyond hitchhiking, thorn jeans, backpacking, street food and hostels!

OUR MEMBER PROFILE:

WORLDLY FRIENDS IN TUCSON admits adults over 40 years of age
Have you gone to different continents, blended among the crowds and tried different cuisines…watched a Flamenco Show in Seville and listened to an Italian Opera in Milan before you strolled to the Louvre…Did you snorkel off Bora Bora? Did you try to make a reservation at a Michelin star restaurant 4 months in advance? Did you dress up in other than shorts and sneakers when you got there and, how was the food?

Yes? Then, welcome to the group WORLDLY FRIEND, and you can tell us what else you did

GOING NORTH!

At NORTH ITALIA every day there is a new delicious favorite made from scratch, like the Chef’s daily pizzas, waiting to be discovered and devoured.

A tempting assortment of wines, beer, and house-made cocktails give you endless ways to treat yourself.

From the moment you walk through the doors, to your last scoops of budino at the end of a satisfying meal, you’ll know you’re in good hands.

So, let's go to North Italia, sit back and savor every bite, sip, and moment.

FACCIAMO UNA BELLA SERATA TUTTI INSIEME!

Buon giorno a tutti!

Italians know what is important in life: cooking, food and family. They know that this recipe is what makes life sweet and at Tavolino, we work every day to bring this tradition to you.

The chef, Massimo Tenino, was born in Italy. His home, San Remo, is a coastal town located in northwest Italy between Nice and Genoa. As a child his days were focused on food, his family sat down for lunch and dinner every day to eat and talk about their day. It was during this time that Massimo first developed his love for cooking, food, and family. Massimo’s grandmother was a wonderful cook and it was she who inspired his passion for food and fresh simple ingredients.
