Phoenix may not be LA or New York City, but we've got our fair share of celebs. Aging rocker Alice Cooper and basketball great Amar'e Stoudemire both own downtown restaurants. Actor Leslie Nielsen and former boxing champ Mike Tyson call the Valley home. And, despite his near-move to the San Francisco 49ers in 2009, we've still got three-time Super Bowl quarterback and author Kurt Warner in the Cardinals' lineup.
Maybe our blossoming culinary scene kept him here. (Of course the $15 million signing bonus probably didn't hurt, either.)
On Friday Flight Night, nab four Tablas Creek Vineyards wine samples for $12. And every Saturday from 6-10 p.m., Geordie's at the Wrigley will offer tequila tastings featuring Sol de Mexico tequila crafted from blue-weber agaves grown at the distillery's private estate in Jalisco, Mexico.
