PHX – The Cocktails

It’s always a lotta’ cocktails and happy hours when I spend time in PHX.  Maybe you saw me post these to Facebook as we consumed, but if not, here’s a rundown: Hmm, seeing them all together makes me realize I must have been going thru a pink theme!  lol

PHX – Postino Wine Cafe

Of course I always visit my FAVE PHX stomping ground, Postino’s, in the Arcadia area.  I cannot leave PHX without getting my mouth around their famous bruschetta…I literally crave it from the moment I book a flight and plan my trip.  Never mind their $5/glass happy hour wine list, which is great in and of [...]

PHX – Beckett’s Table

The boys had been singing the praises of Beckett’s Table for months, so it was certainly first on the list when I arrived.  And it did not disappoint!  Our waitress, Tracy, was amazing – and from the UK – loved her.  Justin Beckett even came out to our table to check on us…I’m still kicking [...]

I’m in PHX!

So you know I’m excited, because I’m hanging with my boys Mark and David right now, and as an added bonus, Ben and David are here as well.  They’re combining a family trip during my time out here, so we’ll be hanging out and having some fun. M&D have got some new restaurants to take [...]

PHX-Postino Wine Café

Sat: On my last day in PHX we went to my FAVE place in all of Central PHX, Postino Wine Café, known simply as ‘Post’.  Postino’s is a wine bar, with 2 large roll-up Overhead doors that open up one whole wall of the space!  It’s an old post office (get it, post office and [...]

PHX-St. Francis

Thurs: We had a late dinner @ the new St. Francis restaurant. It was a really neat concept, a restaurant built around a wood fire oven, mostly constructed of raw materials like sheet metal & rough timber, contrasted by large, sleek removable glass windows & a roll-up see-thru Overhead door that let the outside in.  The [...]

PHX-FEZ

Thurs: Spent the afternoon @ FEZ, our fave spot 4 martinis & harissa spiced french fries-the inspiration for my harissa roasted potatoes a few posts down. ) Cherry bomb & pomegranate martini’s…mmm!

PHX-Bertha’s Cafe

Thurs: In PHX visiting the boys. I got in late last night, narrowly avoiding the 6 inches of snow Dallas is getting today!!! We went to Bertha’s Cafe for lunch & I had the salami/pesto/goat cheese sandwich w/ arugula & sun dried tomatoes on ciabatta…so yummy!

Yee-haw!

Watch out boys, there’s a new gal in town! And she’s loaded down w/ some new playlists w/ some mighty fine songs. And she’s bringin her boys 5 gigs of that music on her handy-dandy thumb drive when she saddles up for PHX tomorrow! Yippe-ki-yi-yay! Translation: finally got all my music in one place (moved [...]
