  • Take a Visual Journey Through AZ Wine Merchants, Baratin, and Bodega
    AZ Wine Merchants, Baratin, and Bodega offer a cozy respite from the mid-day rush in the maze of turquoise that is Old Town Scottsdale. The trifecta presents customers the option to find a new local wine, dine in (or out on the soon-to-come patio), or pick up something fresh (and most likely...

  • Glen Campbell, Comerica Theatre, 2/18/12
    Going in, there was a fear that Glen Campbell's Goodbye Tour concert would devolve into little more than a nostalgia act. That Campbell, struggling with the early onset of Alzheimer's disease, would duly try his best to work through carefully guarded and pre-arranged songs with the minimum...

  • Lenny Kravitz with Raphael Saadiq @ Comerica Theatre
    The baby-making music was full-speed ahead at Lenny Kravitz's show Sunday night at Comerica Theatre. Clearly, the crowd was disgustingly excited, everyone on their feet before Kravitz even took the stage. He easily proved that he's still the same rock 'n' roll sex symbol he's been for so many...
