Arizona Cocktail Week 2014 Ups the Ante for Culinary Events in Metro Phoenix

If you chose to devote your time to Beer Week events this past weekend rather than taking advantage of the impressive lineup of seminars and mixers put on by Cocktail Week, you messed up and we're sorry.

There are several days left before Cocktail Week comes to a close, so you still have time to right your wrongs, but last weekend's events, mostly held at Hotel Valley Ho, were an exciting mix of informative, passionate, historical, fun, and delicious that pretty much knocked our socks off.
