Astor House
Backgammon and board games at Astor House

In keeping with the goal of throwing one special community event every month, Astor House is throwing a backgammon tournament this Saturday at 4 p.m. Only 16 spots are available and interested participants are encouraged to call 602-687-9775 or email to reserve a spot. For those looking to share a meal or some cocktails over less competitive activities, Astor House will also be providing a variety of board games for guests to play on a first come, first serve basis.

Spirits of the Season in Downtown Phoenix

Because nothing pairs better with the holiday season than a good cocktail, Downtown Phoenix has invited more than 15 urban bars and restaurants including Province, The Duce, and Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails to create their own take on seasonal-inspired concoctions in a 6 week competition they call Spirits of the Season.

Though the competition ended Thursday, December 20, these signature drinks will be available through December 31. Unsure where to start? We suggest visiting District American Kitchen & Wine Bar for the Santa's Bellini - a light and progressive take on holiday drinking with handmade cranberry compote, simple syrup, Frangelico Hazelnut Liquor, Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wine and a garnish of fresh mint. For a full list of participating businesses and their holiday cocktails, visit Downtown Phoenix online.
