AZ Bloggers - 2

It looks like we are looking at October 7th to get together, speak up if we need to reconsider the date.

Suggestions for venue so far are:

  • George & Dragon - Central & Indian School
  • Sonoran Brewing Company - 10426 E Jomax, Scottsdale
  • Sonora Brewhouse - 3rd St & Camelback
  • Spaghetti Company - Central & McDowell
  • Duck and Decanter at 18th St. and Camelback
  • Sam's Cafe at Arizona Center
Any other thoughts/suggestions/concerns?

To the four or five of you who actually read this blog, please tell the other AZ bloggers you know about this. I would love to have a bigger turnout than my readership alone will get me.

Oh yeah, and you out of staters are welcome, too - come on over.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Macker gave us a shout out on his radio show tonight, over at Wide Awakes Radio Thanks Macker, it was fun listening to your views instead of just reading them. I have to give you the big thumbs up, too, for pronouncing my last name wouldn't believe how that has been butchered most of my life (there was a decade there that I had a married name that got butchered)

I was just thinking about this. I have a couple suggestions that have patios: Duck and Decanter at 18th St. and Camelback; Sam's Cafe at Arizona Center.

I thought about Cibo House at 5th Ave. and Fillmore, but it gets crowded when the weather is nice. I still wanted to plug it just in case anyone has a date and needs a place to go. Here's a review:

You're going to get a blurb on my radio show this evening. Listen from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM Saturday, September 2nd. It'll be in the fourth segment, starting at approximately 6:45 PM. It's at Wide Awakes Radio!

Is the Arizona Center suffering from the same construction related traffic woes as the rest of downtown?

I like Duck & Decanter, though no G&Ts for SAJU....

Cool, Macker - it'll be like my 15 seconds of fame (things go faster nowadays)

I'm putting the date on the calendar. I would appreciate some place not too smoky and easy access for my power wheelchair!

It's not too bad getting to AZ Center, as long as you don't drive down Central to get there.

I'm off to Flagstaff. Have a great weekend!

I was thinking the Sonoran Brewing Company at 3rd St. & Camelback

Ooh, sorry - I thought that was a different restaurant. I'll fix it

The beergeek in me always enjoys Sonoran, but I'll be happy with where ever the group decides.

What does the Spaghetti Company have to recommend it? I've never been there.

Posted by: Special Agent Johnny Utah at September 3, 2006 08:24 PM

Spaghetti Company: Great food, good bar, friendly service, group accommodations, central Phoenix location....

Then again, I am partial to pasta :-)
