Five Things to Eat and Drink This Week in Metro Phoenix

Just because the weekend is over doesn't mean you have to starve. Here's what we've got on the books this week.

An Intro to Gin: How to Approach, Understand & Appreciate Gin

This summer El Chorro in Scottsdale is offering classes to teach even the most mixology-challenged how to understand and enjoy different types of liquors. The well-known restaurant will kick off the series 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, with a course called "An Intro to Gin: How to Approach, Understand & Appreciate Gin." Participants will have personal instruction about cocktail making from El Chorro beverage manager Alec van Dobben. They'll also get a bar-side meal prepared by chef Charles Kassels, including jumbo shirmp cocktail with cucumber radish salad. The class costs $55 a person.
