Continuing the series I started last month, How to Be Successful on Instagram, I want to start with a confession and then talk about the basics that anyone who uses the app more than casually should be trying to stick to.
I was looking forward to visiting Texas for the weekend during Spring wildflower season, but I was really happy to say yes when I found out that also on the trip would be my friend Christine of the fantastic blog, C’est Christine. I visited Texas a number of times during college in Arkansas, when a friend’s parents were so welcoming as to give us an open invitation down to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. But I’d never done more than drive by Austin. Yet every year, living in NYC, I hear about how amazing it is from all the people returning from SXSW. Another great resource for me before visiting, was the show Best Bars in America on Esquire Network. When they visited Austin, the episode was filled with fun, great stories, interesting locals and above all: great craft beer and artisan cocktails. I couldn’t wait to discover Austin for myself.
Incredulity seems to be a common reaction when I tell people how amazing Scottsdale, Arizona is. Especially as a food town. But it is. Amazing. Especially for those people, like myself, who like to celebrate life and all its beauty by dining and drinking.
In order to support my case, I decided to compile as complete a list as possible of all the best places to fill one’s belly in the greater Scottsdale (sometimes Phoenix) area. Of course, I haven’t yet been everywhere, but I will confess I made the title for SEO purposes primarily and since I love Scottsdale so much, I do plan to add to this list with future trips!
I love movies! Dante and I love movies! Not a week goes by that we’re not watching some movie. So almost any news to do with movies, gets me excited, and when United Airlines invited me to the Tribeca Film Festival for a screening of the movie Anesthesia, I couldn’t resist the chance to see a movie and learn more about United’s commitment to independent film.
