Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?

AZ Restaurant Week
The week we have all been waiting for is finally here. Tomorrow is the start of Arizona Restaurant Week, your opportunity to check out that one place you have been just dying to eat at. More than 100 Valley restaurants will be showcasing their culinary skills by offering a special three course prix-fixe menu through September 26th. The meals will run you $29 or $39 each plus tax and gratuity. Assume you're buying your own drinks too, although we did spot a couple deals that included a drink. Click here for the full list of participating restaurants and to make reservations.

Free Shakes (The Good Kind)
September is National Shake Month (milkshakes, not the kind that kill babies) and what better way to celebrate then with a free mini milkshake. Whataburgers across the Valley will be giving out 4 ounce mini milkshakes from 12 to 4 p.m. Sunday, September 19th. Take your pick of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla but you must eat inside the restaurant, no cheating by going through the drive thru!

Monkey Bread
Monkey Bread, or Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread as it was always called in our house, has been a long- time classic breakfast favorite. The problem with this deliciously gooey treat is that making it also takes a long time. If you love making breads from scratch, we're sure this recipe is worth every hour. If you want to take a shortcut, skip the first half of the recipe and head to your local grocery store instead. Grab a couple loves of frozen bread dough, thaw overnight, and be ready to roll come Saturday morning.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
