Man, are we bored. We called a friend and they were bored, too. Summer cobwebs? Shake off those doldrums with the Urban Wine Walk.
The event features 12 participating bars and restaurants, all with specially priced wine tastings and piquant fare, located along the city's light-rail route. Jump aboard the train bound for Maizie's Café & Bistro, 4750 North Central Avenue, where artisan pizza and a sweet German Mosel Riesling are waiting. Then hop back on to pursue the spicy cherry and chocolate notes of a Matchbook Tempranillo, paired with tomato basil bruschetta, at Steve's Greenhouse Grill, 139 East Adams Street. Or head to Caffe Boa, 398 South Mill Avenue in Tempe, which will have crusty breads and Crnko Jarenincan (a wonderful Solvenian blend) waiting for you.
