Pea Sprouts in Lung, Desert Beer Gardens and Oatmeal Cream Pies in Today's Eater Digest

Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?

Desert Botanical Beer Garden
Friday September 24, ditch the little ones and put your drinking shoes on. The Desert Botanical Gardens will be hosting a night of beer and music with their Beer Garden event. Stroll through the gardens while sampling craft beers from Arizona breweries or rock out to one of five different live music acts. Tickets for the event are $50 for members and $55 for non-members. Save $5 is you purchase yours before September 10th, a good idea since these events tend to sell out. A German inspired dinner will be available for an additional $25. This event is 21+.

Body Gardens
Ron Sveden got the shock of his life when he went to the doctor prepared to be diagnosed with lung cancer and ended up much positive news. It wasn't cancer at all, just a pesky little pea seedling! Doctors speculate that while Sveden was eating raw peas, one must have accidentally gone down the wrong tube and was then lodged in his lung where the little guy decided it would make a nice home and take root. Get the full story here

Oatmeal Cream Heaven
Unlike Karly, the author of blog Buns in My Oven, we don't know how we would have survived K-12 without Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies. Make your own batch of pretty as a picture homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies, and ditch the little plastic wrapped ones.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
