Categories: Seasonal

D-backs

If you've been to an Arizona Diamondbacks game in the last few years, you know just how excited people get for free tacos.

Any time the D-backs would score six runs or more (which didn't happen all that often, due to the team's recent lack of offense), you could pick up a large drink from any participating Taco Bell and get three free crunchy tacos the next day within the given (early evening) time frame.

5 Delicious Things To Do With a Surplus of Arizona Citrus

Zaida Dedolph
Keep citrus season fresh by taking some inspiration from our favorite local chefs and bartenders.
Every year when the citrus comes in, we think we'll never be able to get enough of the sweet, tart fruit. Oranges fresh off the tree. Meyer lemon everything. Bruleed grapefruit. But then citrus season keeps on keepin' on, and suddenly we're out of ideas. Folks with fruit trees begin to give away garbage bags full of lemons and oranges, and "free citrus" signs pop up all over the city.

If you're sick of making lemons into lemonade, take some fresh ideas from some of our favorite local restaurants.

Taco Guild
With St. Patrick's Day less than a week away, it's time to think about where you'll be sipping on green beer for the evening. While some places are offering more standard Irish dishes, there are a few options for those who don't want corned beef and cabbage, too.

Taco Guild
When:
March 17
Cost: 17 cents per taco
Yep, you read the cost right. On St. Patrick's Day, you'll be able to get Taco Guild's special green taco for less than a quarter. The taco consists of corned beef, chipotle mashed potatoes, and bacon all wrapped up in a green tortilla. Of course, if the taco makes you thirsty, they'll also have green beer, but theirs will be made by Cartel in Tempe.

Polish Pączki, a special type of donut.
If you've never heard of pączki, then you're probably not from Chicago or Detroit, cities where Fat Tuesday also means Pączki Day. The Polish doughnut is something like a berliner or a bismark, but is traditionally made with an even richer dough. In cities with a large Polish population, they're kind of a big deal -- especially on Pączki Day.

Unfortunately for ex-Midwesterners, they're relatively hard to find in town. The good new is we know where you can get your fix.

These traditionally round cakes are available around town now through Mardi Gras, which falls this year on Tuesday, February 17. But if you want in on the baby-searching action, you'd better act fast and get your order in ASAP.
