At the end of last week, I got two e-mails. One announced 2015 Arizona Cocktail Week, the other 2015 Arizona Beer Week. I should be excited. But I'm just kind of annoyed because both take place February 14 to 21. No big surprise, as that's happened the past few years without fail, and yet I really don't understand why this must be the case.
Evie Carpenter February 14-21 is going to be a very busy time for you if you like cocktails and beer.
While the upcoming festival season is looking bright, the competition between events is frustrating in a town that would be better served by the two culinary events building each other up and reinforcing the state's beverage culture, rather than forcing people to pick which is worth the time and money.
