Top 5 Things to Eat and Drink This Weekend in Metro Phoenix

Food City Tamale Festival Saturday, December 14

On the hunt for homemade tamales? Yeah, we don't blame you for not wanting to make them on your own. It's a pretty time consuming project. But this weekend some of the best tamale-makers in the state will be showing off their tamales at the Food City Tamale Festival. The two-day event will begin this Saturday at 10 a.m. and runs until 6 p.m. Between 1st and 5th Avenues on Washington Street in downtown Phoenix, members of various faith-based groups will sell thousands of tamales, made in commercial kitchens. Tamales will be sold both in both single orders and by the dozen.
