Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Looking for a way to walk off all those eats from the Phoenix Food Truck Festival? Why not peek into some cool spaces nearby courtesy of the First Annual Evans Churchill Interesting Interiors Tour -- after all, the home of Valley legend and Barrio Cafe chef and owner Silvana Salcido Esparza is on the list.

"It's a Sears Catalog home," Esparza tells me, "and from 1912 with a basement. Of course, there's original art on the walls and a mural by Lalo Cota, Angel Diaz, and Nomas in my kitchen."

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, October 22, the casa-curious can tour the interior of Esparza's home and a dozen other urban properties, including residences ranging from renovated Territorial Craftsman bungalows to new in-fill urban loft apartments, in the Evans Churchill Neighborhood in Downtown Phoenix for ten bucks, with proceeds going to the Evans Churchill Community Association.

Get your tickets in advance here or the day of the tour at MADE Art Boutique and the Phoenix Public Market.

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.
