Fall means the thundering return of the Phoenix New Times' Best of Phoenix A'Fare. This year's shindig, to be held in The Van Buren at 401 West Van Buren Street, will be the 19th annual. The festivities go down soon – from 8 to 11 p.m. on October 13, which is, yes, a Saturday.
And that's good, because you'll be feeling walloped after this one. Your $45 admission gets you 12 drink tickets — that's a full dozen drinks of beer, wine, or cocktails. Tickets are on sale now.
Admission, of course, also gets you food.
A formidable lineup of favorite vendors will be serving the good stuff at this year's event. Among the dozens of great options will be Bosa Donuts, Freak Brothers Pizza, High & Rye, Kiss Pollos Estillo Sinaloa, Yucca Tap Room, Raspados Solaris, SoSoba, and many more.
