College football is a BIG deal in my household. My husband looks forward to the start of the season every September (it starts this week), and I look forward to any excuse to indulge in a cold glass of beer and some chicken wings. Scottsdale’s Spotted Donkey Cantina is now dishing up an even better way to take in those Saturday college football games with the debut of its Donkey Wraps & Drafts menu. For only $9, diners can pop in on game day (Saturdays) and order a delish wrap and a beer. But what about the game? There are four flat-screen TVs at Spotted Donkey Cantina on which to enjoy them.
