Happy Fourth of July! 
Just a few more hours and it's three day weekend time! Sunday and Monday night Cave Creek's Big Earls Greasy Eats is celebrating the fourth with their very own "Parking Lot Picnic Party". Bring you lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy all-American food favorites, ice cold beer and signature cocktails. Plus, you'll have great seats for catching the fireworks displays. The party starts at 7 p.m. and continues into the wee hours  with live music and even a late night menu.  Admission is free, but drinks and eats will cost you. 


Since you should have a little extra time this weekend to get up and make breakfast, we thought we would share this recipe for Red Velvet Pancakes. Top with whipped cream and blue berries and you have yourself one patriotic morning. Enjoy!

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.
