She Forks PHX Event // 90's Party at Joe's Midnight Run
On January 24th, She Forks PHX hosted a 90's party at Joe's Midnight Run. The night was complete with Fresh Prince goodie bags filled with snap bracelets, choker necklaces, warheads, and Airheads, and a Straight Outta Kitchen Menu items like Phat Desserts. Centerpieces included 90's memorabilia including VHS tapes such as "10 Things I Hate About You" and classic Britney Spears and NSYNC cd's. Bob Mayo, owner of Joe's Midnight Run spoke about the origins of Joe's, back when it was a drive thru liquor store. Everyone was enthralled when he spoke about how Joe's has no stoves and no ovens - everything is cooked in a wood fired grill - how amazing! Taryn Jeffries, recipient of Food Writer of the Year by the Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame spoke about evoking emotions in your food writing and how your own experience is what sets you apart. And of course, the food of the night was impeccable. The huge Notorious B.I.G. sliders (mini compared to the regular size!) stole the show, as well as the Phat Desserts. What a blast to the past, celebrating the 90's!
We visited JOJO COFFEEHOUSE on a Sunday afternoon, and the energy was buzzing— a live acoustic player was strumming and singing, and caffeinated patrons shared dishes, while having weekend chats and conversations. While JOJO’s is a coffeehouse, they offer other awesome items such as breakfast, bruschetta boards, and mimosa flights worth trying.
Last weekend I had a lovely girls’ trip to Tucson. Located only an hour and a half to two hours from Phoenix, this little sister city has a lot to offer.
As an art lover, it was easy to fall in love with The FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel. Complete with its own art gallery and drag, nude painting titled, “That COSMOPOLITAN Person” in the entryway, I knew i would have a great time at the hotel.
Simple, but sophisticated is the style that AC Hotel Phoenix Biltmore resonates, and it certainly delighted and surprised us with the perfect escape.
Last night, I had the pleasure of a cocktail tasting at Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails. As a rum lover, I started off the night with “Hogo Made Me Do It”
Last night we went to Squid Ink Sushi. We’re familiar with Squid Ink – to say the least. A few years ago this, was one of the original dates spots my now-husband took me to, and asked me to be his girlfriend! So, admittedly, we have a soft spot for Downtown Phoenix and sushi combined, and this is one of our regular go-to spots. Last night did not disappoint.
Last night I went to Pita Jungle for the first time! I heard lots of good things from my friends about how fresh and healthy Pita Jungle was, so I was so excited to try it.
