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!
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.
One thing about food blogging is that I’m always busy. Recently, I got to try several Verizon products, which has helped me save time on my busy lifestyle!
Overall, it was a wonderful night filled with wonderful flavors! I would visit the Royal Palms again for their romantic, exotic ambience and delightful dishes.
Arizona Taco Festival rocked! We tried almost 20 tacos (omg I am still full!) ,but I have no regrets!
Taste of Biltmore was a blast! Not only did the event raise money for charity, but it brought together over 30+ restaurants in the community.
Surrounded by art and great music, I danced around the room tasting exciting brunch food and enjoying the mimosa and Bloody Mary bar.
On my last visit home, I finally decided it was time for a change. On this trip, we visited the artsy neighborhood of Fishtown!
