"Phoenix Has No Culture!" Oh Really??

Ok, so it's not quite like New York, Austin TX, or San Francisco. But tonight you can experience the more unusual side of Phoenix during the Art Detour. This article will introduce you to the artist/real estate mini-mogul who got the whole thing started back in the 90's.

Of course, man and woman do not live on funky art alone. I don't know if this place is still open (yes, I know....Bad Blogger! Bad, bad, bad!!), but if it's not, you could always try one of the places in this article. The desserts at My Florist Cafe are to die for, and if you used to watch a '70's sitcom called "Alice", the outside of Pat's will look strangely familiar....(they changed the sign a bit in the opening credits to say "Mel's").

None of the cool, interesting people are going to happy hour tonight. Why should you?

    Why is it that Indian restaurants seem to go out of business almost as soon as they open? We occasionally have them here, but they seem to switch out with a couple of unappetizing Mexican places.

    P.S. Your third link sends readers to the same story about the Indian place again. I'm intrigued to hear what other lovely things have sprung up in Phoenix since I left.

    Oops! Thanks for pointing that out, Scone! Corrected the link.

    I sympathize with you there. Nothing worse than finding a cool restaurant, only to have it replaced next week by something mediocre!
