If you know me, you know how much I love my job. One benefit of my job is working in an awesome office with a lot of really good friends. The office that I work out of is called the Tempe Tower and is located at 1400 E Southern Avenue in Tempe. While we enjoy working hard, we do enjoy having a little bit of fun once in a while.
This past week, I noticed that a new place opened up in the building next door to us, a place called Spokes on Southern. Naturally, I wanted to see what they were all about. Spokes has a good looking menu of burgers, salads and sandwiches, and they are an “Ale House” which certainly sounds like fun. The building is nice, they have space for private parties, there is an awesome patio and the people seem cool. In doing a little more research about the place, I learned that Spokes on Southern is a “sibling” to Boulders on Broadway which is a Tempe favorite, as well.
Spokes on Southern is in the same building that used to be Sneakers Sports Grill, Streets of New York and the old Uptown Brewery. While these places didn’t make the location work, I have a feeling the people behind Spokes can do very well here. The place really does have a cool feel to it. Their commitment to good food and good beer with a theme that works well in Tempe should be a great fit for the area.
Spokes is a locally owned business which I think is always a plus. In checking them out, I easily found their Facebook and Twitter pages and also found that they are a place where people can “Mealmatch” to help people less fortunate than us. Seriously, these guys are cool.

I’ve been known to ride my bike to the office once in a while, and I think the whole “bike theme” they have going on at Spokes on Southern is something that I’ll enjoy. It is going to be fun having them as a neighbor.
