Mark your calendars, foodies. On Thursday, April 4, the second annual AZ Wine & Dine, hosted by the Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association, takes place at Scottsdale Quarter.
AZ Wine & Dine will feature 20 booths offering culinary samples from the Valley’s leading restaurants as well as fine wines and craft beers. Participating restaurants include deseo, Prado, Province, Frank & Albert’s, Sol Cocina, Proof, Different Pointe of View, Brio Tuscan Grill and many others. To round out the event, AZ Wine & Dine-goers can enjoy live music from the Shining Star Band and a silent auction with amazing deals on vacation getaways and gift certificates from Scottsdale Quarter’s selection of shops.
“It is important for us to produce a culinary event where local foodies and business executives can be a tourist in their own town, enjoying samples from top resorts and restaurants in a fun and festive atmosphere,” says Arizona Lodging & Tourism President and CEO, Debbie Johnson. “AZ Wine & Dine’s inaugural year sold out, so it’s clear that the Valley’s finest chefs combined with this venue is a recipe for success.” Proceeds from the 21-and-older culinary event benefits the educational efforts of the Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association.
Tickets are $75 in advance; $100 day of the event. www.azwineanddine.com.
