I was lucky to find a perfect celebration for my birthday this year. I just discovered my local beer garden, Tucson Hop Shop.  I am not a big beer drinker but am enthusiastic about supporting local business and local craft products, including beer.  This classy yet casual spot is perfect for our neighborhood, located in the Metal Arts Village, a space for metal artists’ studios.  The Hop Shop has developed a following and has instigated new events that bring the community together for fun.  My big birthday gift this year (besides Medicare) is a visit from two Swiss ladies on vacation.  I have been enjoying showing them around town because they are really open to culture and ready to party. The SyncHOPation event not only happened on my birthday but was walking distance from home.

Spiritual Gangster is a team that teaches yoga classes around the city in pop up locations.  I have never seen yoga with a DJ before, and now I am a complete fan of the idea.  I have taught and taken plenty of yoga classes, with and without music.  To have a creative DJ work the class is another level of wonderment.  The other aspect of the pop up that can be very popular is beer. The participants in the class at the Hop Shop were presented with a pint of beer when they turned in their class tickets.  The $5 fee for both yoga and beer is a screaming deal.

My visitors and I had a fine time meeting people, drinking beer and dancing.  The art studios were open, the parking lot was blocked off for the event, and the crowd was in a very good mood.  Pizza and popcorn food trucks were serving delicious snacks.  We enjoyed both with our beverages.  My friend Steffi took the yoga class while Pia and I watched from a table on the patio.  We toured the studios, did some dancing to the DJ, then walked home. There could not have been a better way to celebrate.  If you like beer I highly recommend a visit to the Tucson Hop Shop.  It is the perfect place for a party.
