|Fancy plates complete with wine holder at AZ Dine & Wine.|
If you enjoy the North Scottsdale scene be sure to hit the 2nd annual AZ Wine & Dine (Formerly Forks & Corks) on April 4 at Scottsdale Quarter. The first annual event under the news was well received last year, and with a great local focus it features food from Arizona's premier chefs, restaurants, resorts, fine wines and craft beer. The outdoor features jazz bands and according to their website, the event " is designed to raise the awareness of the quality of life benefits that Arizona's tourism industry provides its residents and a portion of the proceeds benefit the educational efforts of the Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association." Not exactly a charity, but a good cause all the same. Word is wine from Young's Market, Fire Mountain and the "bigs" like Alliance beverage. Tickets are $75 in advance and $100 the day of the event. (Slightly higher than before.) The website AZWineAndDine.com has more information.
