Just before school gets out and the weather is too warm to be anywhere but the pool, we think you deserve a night out. So we have rounded up some of our favorite, unique date night spots that we think you’ll enjoy (and maybe even wish you had thought of sooner)!
Happy Hour History Tour at the Arizona Biltmore
Be ready to impress your date with your Arizona history knowledge at the Happy Hour History Tour at the Valley’s beloved Arizona Biltmore Resort. Sip champagne or one of the resort’s signature Tequila Sunrises while learning about the highlights of the resorts’ history — from presidential visits to prohibition era parties.
Coffee Tasting at Press Coffee
Saturday coffee run gets a whole new spin. Taking place at various Press Coffee locations weekly on Saturday mornings, these hands-on cupping sessions provide java lovers a chance to sample four distinct coffees while learning about the journey from seed to cup.
Swing Dancing at The Duce
Take them for a swing – literally, with swing dancing lessons. Every Tuesday night from 7 to 8 p.m., The Duce offers free swing lessons during the South Central Swing Nite. By the way, The Duce also has great food and signature cocktails!
Phoenix Art Museum
When the weather starts to get warm, talk a walk – inside! Every Wednesday night you can stroll through the Phoenix Art Museum for free. Take in the new exhibits and one-of-a-kind art for an artsy date night.
Peace at Japanese Friendship Garden
Explore the downtown oasis known as the Japanese Friendship Garden. The walkable pathways wind through a lush green landscape peppered with plants native to Japan, koi-filled ponds, and cultural sculptures. Keep in mind that the garden is intended to be a space of harmony. Ahhh, so this is what the sound of a no-kids screaming zone sounds like? We feel peaceful already. . .

Calling All Foodies! Check Out These New Restaurants in Central Phoenix
Springtime means lots of things in Phoenix: spring training, amazing weather and eating as many meals as possible outside because we all know the heat will arrive soon! Here are some great new restaurants to check out not only for their food but for their great patios!
Little Miss BBQ Sunnyslope
Although Little Miss BBQ opened its first Valley restaurant in 2014, this location is a new and much anticipated addition to Cen Pho. With the original being hailed by none other than Texas Monthly’s barbecue editor Daniel Vaugh as a “Texas style barbecue joint, just a couple states too far west” this new location lives up to the high standards. Long lines for the mouthwatering brisket made a second location a must and Sunnyslope was a perfect choice. The addition of local beers and cocktails, including a tempting Peached Whiskey Sour that can be consumed while waiting, take this place to the next level.
8901 N 7th St.
Across The Pond
Sushi, signature cocktails, and an amazing patio? Yes, please! Located in the space right across from their first valley restaurant, Clever Koi, owners Joshua James and Nick Campisano have delivered a menu highlighted by pristine nigiri and rolls paired with an earthy house-brewed soy sauce. Reviews praise the cocktails just as much as the sushi with special mentions of master mixologist Gavin and legendary sushi chef Alvaro Salinas.
4236 N Central Ave Ste 101
The next big thing is taking the vegan community by storm! Verdura is a plant-based eatery with a 70’s and 80’s music theme. Your favorite comfort foods have been reimagined with a healthy spin and the owners promise it’s so good you won’t miss the meat. The setting is casual and comfortable, and the drink menu is great. Enjoy favorites like London Calling (fish and chips), Yo Mama’s Bucatini and The Ritz (street tacos), all with a vegan flair. Another plus: the patio is dog friendly.
5555 N 7th St
And finally for dessert:
Scoupwell’s Dough Bar
Skip dinner and head straight for dessert! The Scoopers/owners of Scoupwell’s are on a mission to bring happiness to others, one scoop of dough at a time! This dough bar features scratch-made, unbaked gourmet cookie dough that is totally safe to eat raw. Some favorite dough flavors are Ginger Snap, Peanut Butter Explosion, Oatmeal M&M, and Cake Batter. Vegan and gluten free choices are also available. Don’t forget the sprinkles!
Uptown Plaza, 100 E Camelback Road, Unit 164
Which new restaurants will you be checking out? We would love to hear your reviews!
As spring gets into full swing, it’s time to plan your next getaway! But what do you do about sweet Fido at home? Do you leave them with a trusted sitter or take them on the trip? Here are a few things to consider before making this decision and also some travel tips.
First, no matter how near or far, or if you travel by plane or car, it’s important to make sure your pet is microchipped for identification and wears a collar and tag imprinted with your name, phone number and any relevant contact information. It is also a good idea for your pet’s collar to include a temporary travel tag with your cell phone, and/or phone number of those you may be traveling with. Make sure their vaccinations are up to date and pack a copy of their most recent one, along with their license info.
Traveling can be highly stressful for your pets. To help them be as comfortable as possible, there are a few must haves for their crate. With any mode of travel, the crate needs to be well ventilated and large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down and turn around in. Pack a favorite toy, blanket or pillow to give your pet a sense of familiarity and comfort.
Do you love the open road? This could be a great opportunity to explore with your fur baby and with just a little planning and prep, your road trip can be a success! First, make sure your pet is comfortable in the car. Start by taking short drives to get them used to it. A crate is a good idea even in a car, but make sure it’s secure so it doesn’t slide or shift. Just like traveling with kids, pack for all of the ‘what if’ scenarios for your pet. Bring toys, food, a bowl, leash, a waste scoop, plastic bags, grooming supplies, medication and first-aid, and any travel documents. It is also a good idea to find and book pet friendly hotels along your route BEFORE you leave.
Are you planning to fly? Check with your airline or travel agency for pet requirements and definitely try to book a one-way flight. There will be less take off and landing stress on your pup and will also decrease time they spend on the loud tarmac. In addition to the above tips, your pet crate should also be USDA approved for air travel and lined with some type of bedding—shredded paper or towels—to absorb accidents. Pack food on the outside of the crate, in case airline workers need to feed your pup on layovers.
Most of all, make sure you and your pet are comfortable and prepared for whichever trip route you take. Many families travel with their pets and there are more pet friendly hotels, parks and restaurant patios than ever! Remember to take lots of photos and enjoy your vacation!
Where will you and your pet be headed this year?
NEW GOALS. NEW HORIZONS.
2019 is officially underway and we couldn’t be more excited about the future, both individually and as a team. We have lots of exciting things on the horizon and we are full of passion and determination to make this our best year yet.
However, before we get started, we thought we’d take a step back and reflect on the previous year and what we were most thankful for in 2018. That post can be found here: 2018 Counting our Blessings.
Now, on to the good stuff. Here are a few of our team’s personal and professional goals. The great thing about sharing them on such a public platform is that it puts our hopes and dreams out into the universe and gives us more motivation to achieve them! So, without further adue …
OUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS:
» Reconnect with old friends who I have lost touch with over the years.
» Be more in the now. Try not to get interrupted and spend more quality, one on one time with each of my kids every day.
» To remain focused on our new venture as a group and help to continue our success. It’s an exciting time!
» I am also determined to eat more healthy food and exercise!
» Place more focus on my personal health and wellness by attempting to run my first half marathon this January at the Rock N Roll Marathon!
» Dad goals! Be the best father and husband that I can be.
» Celebrate more of the little moments and enjoy my first year of marriage with my soon to be wife, Brooklyn.
» Organize and schedule more. No more flying by the seat of my pants and letting things fall through the cracks.
» Paying more attention to what is important on a daily basis. Let the little things go.
» Learning to be a healthier me, both body and mind. Eating healthy, exercising, maybe try yoga.
How about you? Did you make resolutions? How are they going so far? We’d love to know. Let us know in the comments below.
From our family to yours, wishing you much success and happiness in 2019.
