Hot Dog! It’s Almost Time To Play Ball

It seems like we’ve been hearing a lot of Chicago talk around here lately. Two of the big stories have to do with the new Portillo’s Hot Dogs coming to town and the shiny new Cubs spring training home that has just opened near the Mesa and Tempe boarders. While Portillo’s is new to the Valley, we’ve enjoyed having the Cubs train in Mesa for many years. The new stadium […]

Tempe Tower Welcomes Spokes On Southern

Cool Flag Day Celebration

Flag Day: It is a time to celebrate the adoption of the flag of the United States. In our neighborhood, there is a cool group of Scouts that comes by to help people celebrate the day, as well as six other holidays each year. Memorial Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day, Labor Day, Flag Day and Presidents Day. I love the way these holidays are celebrated in our “Camelot Corner” neighborhood in Tempe. […]

I hear an Echo…

Welcome to Echo Coffee in Scottsdale, AZ. The sweet sound of success. Some people hear it, some don’t. If you listen closely, you will hear my good friend Steve Belt talking about what a coffee shop should be. To be clear, I have no idea what it takes to make a great Scottsdale coffee shop but I have no doubt in my mind that Steve knows. You see, for several […]

Time for Nick’s Annual Turkey Drive

Once again, it’s time for our annual turkey drive! On Sunday Nov. 23rd , I will be delivering turkeys to help the Phoenix Rescue Mission feed the homeless on Thanksgiving Day. I believe that many people have a desire to help others this time of year but find it difficult to do so because our lives are so busy. This year, the need is sure to be great! If you […]
