Wine, Beer, Music, Food
It's fundraising season and the fun-raising continues this weekend in Peoria at the 2nd Annual Vistancia Music & Wine Festival. Enjoy a full day of local Arizona music while sampling dozens of wines this Saturday, November 5th at the Vistanca Village Mountain Vista Community Center. Join Bitter Creek Winery, Jerome Vineyards, Southern Wine & Spirits, the Del Fava Family winery and many more to raise funds for the Fighter Country Partnership which supports and honors Air Force personal and their families during hard times. Rock Bottom Brewing and Sonoran Brewing will be there with craft beer samples and Cruz Tequila and Mexican Moonshine will be passing out the tequila. Eats will be provided by Squid Ink Sushi, Verde Grill, Johnny's BBQ, and a bunch more of your favorite local vendors. Tickets are $25 for general admission and an additional $15 to participate in the wine tasting. Click here to purchase tickets. 

Learn Chinese

Tired of trying to find great Chinese food? Maybe it's time to learn to make it yourself. Bobby over at BlogChef.net shares her Orange-Sesame, Cashew, Black Pepper, and General Tso's chicken recipes plus recipes and instructions for egg rolls and even crab puffs. It's a total Chinese food feast! It might not be as easy as take out but we're going to bet it tastes better then anything that comes out of a box.
