A Sparkly Pump and Reilly’s Craft Pizza

Last weekend I wanted to try a new restaurant and I had heard good things about REILLYs Craft Pizza downtown Tucson.  I also heard it was a funeral home and this intrigued me. As it turns out it this is a true statement and was a funeral home originally that was in operation from 1908-1990.reilly3

The 3,200-square-foot space retains much of the history of the funeral home, from the refinished original wood floors to the salvaged elevator gear repurposed in a glass table. Broken bits of plates and cups recovered from an excavation on the property were incorporated into the “W” and “M” signs on the restrooms; wood from the former chapel and offices was used to adorn a wall in the bar area.

The menu offers modern Italian food in a casual urban setting. Artisan hand-made pizzas, pastas, and salads as well as craft drinks .

The atmosphere had a fun vibe and was energetic- something I was craving that night after standing in high heeled sandals all day working with clients and feeling exhausted.   I was excited to wear a new pair of shoes I had just purchased at Dillard’s which sounds idiotic since I just said how tired I was and to conquer and break in a new pair of shoes?. CRAZY!!!!!!

I normally would agree with you but my new pair of Cole Haan/Nike Air Sparkly Pumps were like walking in slippers.  They were so comfortable I honestly couldn’t believe it myself after standing all day in the sandals.  The added excitement was that I held out since early November when I first saw the shoes at Dillard’s.  The price originally was $186.00 and after a few markdowns  I scored with an additional 30% off paying $70.00 for them. Buillja!!!  I paired them with my white jeans and a black tank.

The shoes made the outfit no question about that and I even got a few compliments at Reilly’s!!

  2. They must have been very happy to see you walking in there! Nice shoes and they are comfortable! As for your pizzas, what can I say – because I am slobbering. I love a good pizza and do like to make them at home. Will take a tip from your blog and try the lavash. Can’t wait to try Reilly’s when we get back to Tucson.
