Five Things to Eat and Drink this Weekend in Metro Phoenix
Looking for something to put in your mouth this weekend? We've got you covered. Check out what's on our plate.
Sweet Republic Ice Cream (Facebook)
With Lee's Cream Liqueur now closed and St. Paddy's day only 48 hours away, where are Phoenix locals expected to get their ice cream drink on? Why, Sweet Republic, of course. The artisan ice cream shop has churned up some special St. Patrick's Day flavors, including Jameson Irish Cream, Chocolate Guinness, and Rum Raisin (all right, that last one isn't exactly Irish, but it's got alcohol in it, and that's really what matters). Stop by Sweet Republic's shop in Scottsdale or call your local Whole Foods to see if it's in stock.
Pig & Pickle
Pig & Pickle is going Pink today to benefit the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. This five-course charity dinner (plus hors d'oeurves) will feature live music and a silent auction, all to benefit a cause near and dear to the restaurant as well as remember a late friend of Pig & Pickle chef Keenan Bosworth. Tickets are $125 and can be purchased in person or over the phone at 480-990-1407. For more information, visit the Pig & Pickle Facebook event.
