Top 5 Places to Eat and Drink This Week in Metro Phoenix
World of Beer
www.facebook.com/wobgilbert The second location of World of Beer in the Valley opens this week.
Get ready Gilbert-ites because you're getting a new watering hole with more than 500 bottles of beer, 60 rotating taps and 2,900 square feet of beer-centric boozing. Of course we're talking about World of Beer Gilbert, the third location of the national chain to open in Arizona. The craft beer tavern has its grand opening planned for today and will host an exclusive Facebook party tomorrow for those who "like" their page. World of Beer in Gilbert will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily and offers happy hour Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with $1 off all draft beers.
Tuesday, December 17
As much as we try to pretend the holidays are about family and love and giving and stuff, we have to admit food ranks pretty high on our Christmas priorities list. In fact, we believe so strongly in the connection between the holidays and food that we'll be back for a second year of Eating Christmas, Chow Bella's holiday reading event. Local creatives and New Times writers will read their food-themed holiday stories at Crescent Ballroom this Tuesday at 7 p.m. Admission to the reading is free, and canned donations will be accepted to benefit St. Mary's Food Bank. And of course -- since we expect to make you hungry -- food will be available from Crescent Ballroom's Cocina 10.
