Exploring Arizona: Going local

Supporting local businesses and events is important to the fiance and I. And there's no shortage of either in Phoenix.

It seems like the past few weekends have been full of local fare and festivities. Some of the highlights have included celebrating Arizona Beer Week at Sun Up Brewing Company (our most fave local establishment), buying fresh salsa, organic flax crackers and other yumminess from the Phoenix Public Market, people watching at the m7 Street Fair and supporting our Cougs at their road games in Tempe and Tucson. 

Even though we've lived here for a year now, there are still so many places to check out, and the Phoenix Art Museum, Pizzeria Bianco, Schnepf Farms, Revolver Records, La Grande Orange and the Arizona Science Center top the list.

Next time you're trying to pick a restaurant, bar or event, skip the chains. You may just find out a little more about your city.
