A cold beer at the end of a hot day is the perfect cure for Tucson's summertime blues.

 Make that a free beer and you can almost erase the sting of today's punishing 109-degree heat.

 And free is what you will find at Ghini's French Caffe from 5 to 7 today, when chef-owner Coralie Satta hosts a free craft beer sampling event. There will be six craft beers to sample at the French restaurant, 1803 E. Prince Road, at North Campbell Avenue.

  You also can grab dinner tonight until 9. Friday is the only day that the cafe serves dinner and hosts happy hour from 3 to 9 p.m.
