From chocolate-drizzled popcorn to a stunning Mother Earth-approved salad bowl to a brand new pop-up park in Phoenix that allows locals to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and a stress-free lunch house, here are four of our favorites this month.
Featuring mirror-polished stainless steel and earthy bamboo, the Kontra Bowl ($180) is much more than a handsome salad bowl—it’s a tabletop sculpture. (Plus, it would make the perfect Earth Day gift for your eco-loving pal.) http://www.momastore.org/.
Sealed with a Spoon
Think Ben or Jerry could be your Mr. Right? The next time you’re proclaiming your adoration of Cherry Garcia, make sure to involve the adorable Big Love ice cream bowl and spoon ($56). http://www.alessi-shop.com/.
The Great Outdoors
Instead of seeking respite in the nearest fast food joint during your hurried lunch hour, Phoenix’s CityScape invites those nearby to sit and stay a while at the limited-time Pop Up Park. Pack a lunch or grab something to go at one of CityScape’s many restaurants and enjoy live music, play Frisbee or a board game or just relax on a lawn chair or blanket (everything but the food is provided by the Pop Up Park). The park takes place weekdays through the spring (as weather permits) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. http://www.cityscapephoenix.com/.
Whether it’s the main course at an all-night chick flick fest or a sweet and sophisticated favor for wedding guests, the white chocolate-drizzled Gourmet Signature Popcorn ($15) is dearly beloved by all who eat it. http://sweet-marys.com/.
