3 Best Things to Eat and Drink This Weekend in Metro Phoenix
Riverwalk Wine and Food Festival
Saturday, May 23
If you think Rawhide is just for tourists and little kids, it’s time to rethink what you know about the Western "town." This Saturday, Rawhide will host food trucks and wine tasting, along with a beer garden and a craft fair for the Riverwalk Wine & Food Festival. Attendees can expect live musical entertainment, and local food artisans will be located along the bank of the Riverwalk. The event runs 5 to 10 p.m. General admission is $15, or $30 for two attendees plus five drink-tasting tickets. Visit the Rawhide website or the Riverwalk Wine & Food Festival Facebook event page for more information.
Gourmedd Cooking Classes for the Cannabis Enthusiast
Saturday, May 23
Gourmedd, a Phoenix-based medible company, wants to help you step up your edibles game from pedestrian brownies to everyday gourmet. Taught in an Old Town Scottsdale private home, the first class — called The Fundamentals: Medicate Anything! — covers all the basics including three different methods to infuse any food your heart desires. The $80 fee includes instruction as well as samples of the edibles and other refreshments. Attendees will also create a recipe book and take home a goodie bag. You can register for the class, which is only open to those with a medical marijuana card, online.

Del Frisco’s Grille Pre-Memorial Day Patio Party
Sunday, May 24
Memorial Day may be the unofficial start of summer everywhere else in the country, but in the Valley of the Sun, it signifies the end of patio-dining season. Make the most of the last few days we have before the triple-digits hit this Sunday at Del Frisco’s Grille. The restaurant will kick off summer (or say farewell to spring) at their pre-Memorial Day party, during which diners can pair a cheeseburger and beer for $14, or a brat and beer for only $10 while enjoying Del Frisco’s expansive patio. Food specials run from 3 to 7 p.m. with live music playing all day.
