An A'Fare to Remember

“You always know you're at the right party when it feels like The Riddler is about to attack,” 30 Rock character Avery Jessup once said.

We have good reason to believe that the 12th Annual Best of Phoenix A’Fare will be exactly that type of party: Full of fascinating, well-dressed guests, striking art, and a pitch-perfect soundtrack.

Celebrating the Valley’s underground, the New Times-sponsored soiree will take place at the former Borders location in Biltmore Fashion Park.

Over 30 eateries -- including Café Martha, Fairytale Brownies, and Zoe’s Kitchen -- will serve up samples, while multiple full bars pour libations.

Mr. P-Body will spin throughout the evening, and Glendale’s Ink Therapy Tattoo Company and Jim Covarrubias will create live art.

Cocktail attire is required. Attendees must be 21 or older.
