SHINE: Your Pocket Guide to Scottsdale

Once a year, New Times puts the spotlight on Scottsdale in SHINE, our annual pocket guide. As usual, the 2012 edition includes many of our favorite spots to drink, dine, shop, party, and get a culture fix.

This issue features some pretty amazing food & drink.

In the issue, Chow Bella contributor Dominique Chatterjee highlights must-visit restaurants (including Distrito and Brat Haus) and don't-miss watering holes (The Mint and Kazimierz). And our favorite funny girl, Laurie Notaro, quizzes pastry chef Country Velador and mixologist Richie Moe about their shopping habits.
