No Comments Dining, Local Upcoming Events, Nearby Things To Do, Shopping, Retail, and Dining

We are so excited for fall to begin and not just because of the gorgeous weather, but because there are so many delicious food festivals to look forward to!   Here’s a taste of what’s to come:

Scottsdale kick’s off the season in September with our personal favorite, Arizona Restaurant Week, where food lovers can savor a three-course meal at some of the most noteworthy restaurants in town for only $20 to $40 per person.  There are over 200 participating restaurants this year and only nine days to try them all… decisions, decisions!

The Annual Arizona Taco Festival is a spicy competition in October where everyone from name chefs to my friend’s neighbor’s aunt will be competing for the best taco of the year — and a $7500 prize.  We take our tacos seriously here in Arizona.

Comments Off Nearby Things To Do, Shopping, Retail, and Dining

Finally, someone opened a new concept at one of the best restaurant/bar locations in Old Town Scottsdale. This sounds like a fun happening new concept, I’m excited to check it out. I imagine out of town visitors are going to appreciate having this as a fun option for nightlife or a place to grab a bite before a spring training game. The Scottsdale Vacation Rental condo is just an 8 minute drive from the Firehouse!
