Italian Deli sets the stage for murder

We’ll take a side of murder and intrigue with our braciola and shrimp scampi.

And that’s what you will get this weekend when Tony’s Italian Deli at 6219 E. 22nd St. stages a dinner-theater event, “Fuhgedaboudit: A Murder Mystery Dinner Show.”

This is one of those gangster tales spread over three acts with Godfather Don Don DonLeone and his slimy, crooked cohorts. In the end, the audience gets to decide who is the evildoer.

The cost is $25 and performances are at 7 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday Reservations are recommended; 747-0070.

Mexican restaurant replaces Krazee Chef

What was supposed to be a summer hiatus has turned into forever for The Krazee Chef, a short-lived burgers and wings joint at 1012 E. Sixth St. that closed back in April.

The space is now home to Mr. Antojo, a Mexican restaurant.

Mr. Antojo specializes in burritos, Sonoran hot dogs, carmelos and tortas, with prices running $3 to $7. On its Facebook page, Mr. Antojo boasts having Tucson’s best Sonoran hot dog. It’s open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

No one answered the restaurant’s phone on Monday for additional comment.

Krazee Chef owner Daniel Ortiz said back in April that he was closing his then four-month-old venture for a couple months to make some much-need plumbing repairs. At the time, he hinted he might delay reopening the restaurant until University of Arizona classes resumed this fall. School has been back in session about a month.
