Don't miss your chance to hang out with the cool people at the 12th Annual Best of Phoenix A'Fare. This year, we will be transforming the ol' Borders book store at the Biltmore Fashion Park into party central and you're invited to join in the fun. Saturday, October 8th join Phoenix New Times, several hundred of your closest friends, and more than 35 Valley restaurants for an evening of food, music, and of course, plenty of booze. Sample food from Baby Kay's and Sprinkles Cupcakes (to name just a couple) and cocktails from Sailor Jerry's, Stoli, wine from One Hope Wine, and beer from Budweiser and Stella. Music, dancing, pretty people — all the making for a super awesome party. Tickets are $35 per person and this event is 21+. Proceeds will benefit the Arts & Business Council of Greater Phoenix.

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.
