There are so many fabulous restaurants along the light rail route in Metro Phoenix that it's hard to pick just one. So don't! Visit them all at the first-ever Phoenix Urban Wine Walk from 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday, April 24) at select restaurants on the light rail route.
It's sort of like a progressive dinner, where couples or groups parade from one place in the neighborhood to the next enjoying food and wine at each stop.
The wine walk strictly features small wine samples and mini-noshes -- nature's way (ok, Phoenix's way) of making sure you don't overindulge.
The "walk" route runs along the light rail from the Camelback Corridor all the way to Mill Avenue in Tempe, so you won't actually have to do any walking with all that wine and food sloshing around in your belly. Obviously, this event is 21-and-over only.

Each participating restaurant is offering a different special with three wines to choose from; for example, $3.50 for three 1 oz. glasses of Arizona Stronghold Vineyards Tazi, Dos Cabezas Red and Keeling Schaefer Grenache at the Phoenix Public Market or $2 for a 2 oz. wine sample plus chips & salsa at Macayo's Depot in Tempe. We're especially digging the deals at Steve's Greenhouse Grill ($2 wine, fruit and cheese sample plate) and Maizie's, where you can nab the orgasmic Wingless Buffalo Dip and a small glass of Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay for $3. Yum!
No tickets, codes or secret handshakes required. Just tell your waiter you're on the wine walk, and he'll offer you the special. For a complete list of participants and a wine checklist to bring on your walk, visit the Wine Walk website.
