Local Rock Stars

September 16th

Live in Phoenix and love ice cream? Me too. If you are in the neighborhood, consider a new shop that my friends just opened: Sweet Republic. They are an incredible duo with an even sweeter love story. You can read the details, or just swing through for a scoop and ask them about it. They specialize in odd flavors, including bacon. Adam, did you read that? Ice cream AND bacon. It might be your version of heaven.

Phoenicians itching for something cultural and fabulous to do this weekend should consider the Eye Lounge downtown on Friday. Sam — you writing this down? As our resident weekend activity coordinator for sweet things to do in central Phoenix, this certainly needs to be added to the agenda. My friend Eliza is opening her new exhibit of photographs and they are stunning. You won’t regret stopping in to see her great work. And when in the neighborhood, Conspire Coffee Shop has a rad collection of vintage T-shirts.

Have a scoop and get the scoop for me. I’m off to the Lone Star state for some family time.

  6. Have a fabulous time with your family Kelli! David loves bacon, need to get him to your neck of the woods and taste that bacon ice cream — perhaps I should try and make some myself. We’ve had garlic ice cream so bacon can’t be all that bad. πŸ™‚ Have a safe trip. Hugs!

  7. Enjoy your time away!

  8. Consider it done. But I need to clarify: did I just get relegated to the level of party planner? It’s a noble cause, yes, but I hope that our relationship means more to you than that!
