The highs and lows of parenting and real estate.

Things To Do! – Beta

I’m adding a new feature to this site (one of many new things to come), and I haven’t had a chance to get all of the details properly worked out for a formal unveiling; but rather than put it off indefinitely until I manage to squeeze 26 or 27 hours out of every day and am able to get it together the way I want, I’ve decided to start this out with a little test version, or ‘beta’, if you will.

I’m going to have a couple of guest bloggers on my site once or twice a week. The first one will be Amanda, who is one of my very best girlfriends and who always has her finger on the pulse of the East Valley community, with a column we’re calling (right this very second, until I can think of something more creative) Things To Do:

My favorite pick of the week: letting your pup run around on Chase Field! Read on…

*ArtFest of Scottsdale – Love it!

*Fetch on the Field – Let your dogs run around the Diamondbacks field!! It’s a giant baseball dog park! $10 for 2 humans and a dog, $5 each extra. All proceeds to Animal Control and the Humane Society

Restaurant of the Week:

Lucille’s BBQ – I don’t know how I missed this one, everyone else seems to already know about it. This chain opened a location at Tempe Marketplace. We went there on a whim this weekend and it was SO good. Real southern-style BBQ. Fried green tomatoes, grits, and amazing BBQ. Highly recommend, and I’ll be running back there soon. :-)

Hike of the Week: West Fork of Oak Creek One of my favorite AZ hikes, and it’s perfect this time of year. Easy 3 miles.
Thanks, Panda!

  2. Welcome (back) to the Arizona blog-o-sphere! Great list — and having grown up in Flagstaff, my personal favorite is the West Fork of Oak Creek hike… Don’t miss it if you haven’t done it!
