Paper, Not Plastic: Do You Have Your Copy of Quick PHX Yet?

Yeah, yeah, we're all about the smartphone these days, but sometimes don't you dream about putting down that iPhone and flipping through something real, something paper? Something you can rustle, turn the pages down on, tear pictures from and stick them on a real bulletin board? (Sorry, Pinterest.)

You're in luck. This week Phoenix New Times published Quick PHX, our annual pocket guide to all things downtown. This issue is devoted to paper -- we're featuring paper artists; shops where you can pick up paper supplies; events that require a ticket purchase; and food wrapped to go. We've also got the scoop on the best coffee shops, craft beer bars and Mexican food in downtown and central Phoenix -- and more.

You can see all the content online here, or better yet, grab an actual copy of Quick PHX when you're out and about this weekend. Or email me ([email protected]) and I'll pop one in the mail. The real mail. Because who doesn't love getting mail?
