FREE Hugs In Green Valley Arizona

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

 

 

Every day I am reminded why Green Valley, Arizona is such a wonderfully unique place to live and today was no exception.  Today's Green Valley News headline read:  Free Hugs! They Are Giving Them Away At La Posada.  Staring on Monday October 15 from 9-11 you can get your free hug at Posada Java and, according to the article, can continue to get them for as long as there are people willing to be hugged.

We all know that a hug has the power to make us feel better even on the worst day but did you know that it comes with some surprising health benefits as well? 

Hugging reduces the risk of heart diseases.  High blood pressure is one of the main risk factors for heart disease. Studies have also shown that hugging lowers blood pressure and with it reduces the risk of heart diseases. For people with weak hearts or high blood pressure, this one is probably the most important one from all the health benefits of hugging.

Hugging relieves stress and makes you feel calmer.  Several studies have shown that hugging makes you happier (what a surprise!). Hugs increase the level of hormone called oxytocin. This hormone is a trigger for bonding and caring responses. This hormone makes you feel calmer and less anxious.

The Free Hugs Campaign is a is phenomenon that is taking the world by storm.   Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, a man whose sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten their lives.  He knew, that sometimes all we really need is a hug. 

When Green Valley, AZ resident Skip Roush read an article about Free Hugs he passed it on to his wife who he knew would run with it.  When his wife Mary passed away unexpectedly in August, Skip felt the need to act on her behalf.  He is one of 30 volunteers who will be donning green "free hug" aprons and giving free hugs along with "I've Been Hugged" stickers at Posada Java in Green Valley Valley Arizona.

Who knows, you may decide that what's even better than a cup of java in the morning at Posada Java is the free hug...a potentially life saving embrace is yours for the asking!

Canela Bistro In Sonoita Arizona

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

Arizona's Centennial Celebration

#7 of 100 Things To See & Do In Arizona

Canela Bistro in Sonita

Nestled in the grasslands and oak hills of Southeast Arizona in one of the small towns that dot the landscape is Canela Bistro.  Located within the Mountain Empire Region and Southeaster Arizona Wine Country in the quaint town of Sonoita, Arizona, it has quickly become a destination restaurant for locals and tourist alike. 

Canela Bistro’s sun-drenched brick facade quickly gives way to the comfort and beauty found within. “The restaurant's ambiance just whispers of the Southwest...it has a comfortable, laid-back feel ” (Arizona Daily Star) Native plants, richly colored textiles, pottery and artwork are tastefully displayed throughout the restaurant. In addition to the cozy main dining room and the lush garden patio, a private dining room may be available upon request.

But the real story is in the food that is served.  Inspired by food archaeologist, Gary Nabhan, the owner of Canel Bistro, John Hall, left Seattle and returned to the place he grew up and opened Canela Bistro.  Hall and his partner, Joy Vargo, committed themselves to using locally sourced ingredients when they opened in 2005. Vargo said Nabhan taught the couple how to forage for prickly-pear fruit, mesquite beans and yucca flour.

Take the scenic drive to Sonoita and enjoy Southwestern cuisine created from locally produced food and wine that is guaranteed to please even the most discriminating taste buds.  Canela Bistro’s Menus are also Food-Allergy, Vegetarian, Vegan and Kid Friendly.  Whether you’re just treating yourself to a great meal or celebrating a special occasion, the owners and staff at Canela Bistro know exactly how to make your experience a memorable one.
