Tempting Tempe

A quick weekend trip to Tempe to take in the sights and sounds of the Festival of the Arts was a perfect get away (but not very far away) for us last weekend.  I found a great Air bnb apartment in the perfect location for walking to the action.  We discovered new places to drink and dine, and purchased a few pieces of original jewelry at an artist’s booth.  My parter Bob is a big beer fan, so we sat for a while overlooking the fair on the balcony of the famous landmark Gordon Biersch Brewery.  The beer is okay.  The view is fabulous.

Our favorite new spot for food drinks and a lively crowd is Culinary Dropout.  We enjoyed wonderful service in a very jovial atmosphere there before we went to the fair.  The menu was innovative bistro style food.  It was tempting to eat all our meals there, but we wanted to do some investigating into other places.  Tempe is full of bars and food offering of all kinds. If there is nothing you like to eat or drink there, you are just too picky.

The Arts Festival turned the town into a large outdoor party with plenty of opportunity to people watch.  We had such a good time we may just make a habit of visiting Tempe. There is much to discover.

This looks yummy.. especially the array of beers. Chain restaurants often don’t live up to their beer hype but the cocktail menu + appetizers looked great. I love the wall art.
