Maximum Strength Design

Noticed something a little funky happening in our neck of the woods lately: old buildings, many of which have been sitting vacant for quite some time, are getting a shot of new energy – but not by someone you might expect. Starbucks, it seems, has an interest in preserving old buildings. They’ve done a fine […]

Loco for Locale

Seriously, it’s impossible to even type these words without getting that mouthwatering feeling. We’re talking about La Piazza Locale — a place that makes seriously impressive pizza.

A Parish of Pastor

We’re not the first to say it: the name’s a little weird. Taco Guild. Wait, huh? Wha? Guild? Tacos and Guilds? Huh? Then again, we thought that about the enchilada joint across the street (Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup) but now that we’re regulars over there, Gadzooks is part of our regular parlance. Seems the corner […]

This is how pilgrims roll

There’s someone out there reading this who just realized Thanksgiving is Thursday. Someone with no plans, no nuthin’. Well that doesn’t mean you’ve got no turkey because Sapporo’s given’ you the bird, Asian-style. While lots of multi-course, turkey dinner places are all booked up, Sapporo in Scottsdale is the perfect place to get your turkey […]

Everybody Must Get Stonehouse

In some ways, you’ve got to be mentally prepared before stepping foot in La Grande Orange. It’s a barrage of noise, sights, people, more noise, stuff to buy, girls who don’t do yoga but wear yoga clothes, more noise, and a line that requires your attention if you intend on keeping your place in it.

He Caymus, he saw, he conquered

Maybe life ain’t so bad after all. See, earlier this year, we were picturing life in AZ without the iconic Sportsman’s Fine Wine & Spirits occupying the spot next to Tarbell’s restaurant at 32nd Street and Camelback. Sportsman’s closed over the summer and we were sad, as were thousands of others. But then news came […]

MercBar: A Classic Redux

Hey, remember MercBar? Of course you do. It’s part of our DNA as residents of PHX. In an age of “concepts” and “gastropubs” and “cocktail culture,” Merc remains, at its core, “just a bar.” It’s open 365 days a week, it’s dark, it’s sexy, it’s just a good room for drinkin’. But like any place […]

When we say “Half Moon Sports Grill,” what do you picture? That strange building on Highland, just west of 24th Street, that you see as you drive by but most likely don’t pop in? That’s cool, because even the owners knew it was time for an update after over 10 years in biz. But a […]
