Check, Please! Arizona Festival: Classic Valley Restaurants and Celebrity Chef Entertainment

Food lovers and fans of Channel 8's most popular program crowded into downtown Phoenix's CityScape for the second annual Check, Please! Arizona Festival on Sunday. The event featured 30 local restaurants, wine and beer, food samples, and plenty of entertainment from some of Arizona's top chefs. The sold out festival was a definite success with plenty of food and booze (full disclosure: Chow Bella was a co-sponsor), though we do have a few suggestions for next year.
