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!
I set out with one goal in mind when getting to Mountain Shadows – escape. Even though Mountain Shadows is a mere 20 minute drive from my home, it truly is an oasis, and a perfect getaway without having to get very far away, tucked into Paradise Valley.
Hotel Valley Ho is truly a destination resort. Founded in the 1950’s, the hotel still retains the classic splendor of a celebrity escape, with a mid-century, modernist aesthetic permeating throughout the hotel.
On Friday, August 10th, a special luncheon was planned to celebrate the Grand Opening of Angels Trumpet Ale House. We were all given cute bags of hops, and kicked off the luncheon with delicious wings and golden ales.
We were greeted with skyscraper views from the 10th floor, a perfect view of my favorite downtown Phoenix mural- Nevercrew’s bear mural (a new, Phoenician street art staple), delicious macarons, and champagne!
The room itself gave off artistic vibes, from the mid-century furniture: an eclectic purple chair, colorful pillows, to a fully stocked bar – not with mini alcohol bottles but large bottles of Maker’s Mark, Patron, and more.
The lobster is flown in fresh from Canada, and wow'ed all of us. The Keg treated us to a night of delicious dining and hospitality.
I drank Huss Brewing Brews, ate delicious appetizers, mingled with like-minded boss babes, and had a blast.
