The goal of Get Your PHX is to show up, en masse, to support those who pioneer new restaurants, stores, bars and event spaces. We want to provide them a boost as they put their sweat, tears and wealth on the line to make life great downtown. Plus, we want to provide a chance for you to meet others like you, who want to get the most out of Phoenix.
Thanks again to everybody at the Indie ArtHouse. Joseph and the gang showed us a great time. Thanks also to The Bikini Lounge for offering drink specials and thanks to food truck Hey Joe for providing tasty comestibles. We raised a little money to benefit Free Arts of Arizona, and bought some great local original art.
I’m particularly excited about the June Get Your PHX because I’ve been wanting to do a wine pairing for a looooong time. Thanks to Virginia Senior over at Urban Beans, we will have special presentation from a professional wine sommelier who will guide us in how to pair wines with different types of food. Watch for an announcement soon about who our celebrity sommelier will be.
How better to start the summer than by refining your knowledge of which wine to pair with which meat, cheese, chocolate or desert?
With this knowledge you can impress your friends at the next 4th of July back yard barbeque: “No, really I think these Hebrew National Hot dogs would be best with an Albert Mann, cremant d’Alsace, brut.”
To round out my wine pairing dream team, Lisa Reinhardt of The Wei of Chocolate will provide the chocolate for the wine pairing. Have you ever had their citrus infused dark chocolate? I can’t wait to try this out! This is going to be a real treat.
Virginia at Urban Beans is completing a major expansion. She has a liquor license now, so she is serving all new meals: Sunday brunch with her famous French toast from 9am to 1pm are $15.95 and include an entree, scones, coffee and a cocktail. She is also doing special 5-course dinners, coming soon and she is expanding her desert menu.
Everything she is doing is based on a Eurocafe model of a seamless integration of coffee, food and wine.
Here’s the best part: the wine pairing is regularly a $15 deal and you are going to get it for FREE! So, join us, won’t you?
Keep an eye on our Facebook Fan Page for updates. As you know, there are always surprises.
