Lisa G. Fundraiser, Brazilian Day, and More This Weekend In Metro Phoenix

Looking for something to put in your mouth this weekend? Here are a few things we have on our plate including a fundraiser for food community member Lisa Guingo, who recently was diagnosed with lung cancer, and a Greek cooking class with Denise Clayton of Denise Is Cooking. Don't forget this weekend is your last chance to vote for the best flavor in Gelato Spot's chef flavor competition. And mark your calendars for our New Times Best of A'Fare. Tickets are on sale now.

Fundraiser for Lisa Giungo at Union at the Biltmore Friday, September 6

When the food community heard early last month that restaurateur, chef, and businesswoman Lisa Giungo had been diagnosed with lung cancer, support poured out to help her beat the aggressive disease. This Friday, Union at the Biltmore Fashion Park will host its own fundraising event in Lisa G.'s honor. From 6 to 8 p.m., 20 percent of all sales will go to Lisa -- there will also be raffles, prizes and music. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased online and you can also make cash donations through the event website.
