Five Things to Eat and Drink this Weekend in Metro Phoenix
Arizona Cocktail Week
Cocktail Week (yes, it's the same time as Beer Week. You can read all about the celebration battle here) is kicking off the festivities with a Cocktail Carnival, happening this Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. on the lawn at the Hotel Valley Ho. The carnival will feature: local and national bartending talent; liquor samples from top name brand ambassadors; pop-up shops and signature beverages from a selection of bars around the country; live music from Colorado-based band Bonnie and the Beard; a food court with booze-infused cotton candy; prizes, games, and more.
VIP ticket holders will be able to access to the evening's Beam and BBQ on the Balcony, an exclusive carnival event featuring savory meats and Jim Beam cocktails. For more information about the carnival, a full listing of the week's events, or to purchase tickets, visit Arizona Cocktail Week online.
