Top 5 Things to Eat This Weekend in Metro Phoenix

Festival season continues this weekend with the fourth annual Arizona Taco Festival but if you're looking for something a little more celebrity-driven, may we suggest catching some of the region's best chefs as they tour the Valley on Saturday? And if you're planning on heading to Tempe at all, we've got a handful of dining suggestions worth your consideration.

Lunch and Learn Friday, October 18

This Friday, the 12th season of Sanctuary on Camleback Mountain's Lunch and Learn series kicks off with a four-course dinner event and several special guests. At 6 p.m. diners can join local chefs Mark Tarbell and Lee Hillson for the evening, as well as The Food Network's Andrew Schecter, who created the hit show Restaurant: Impossible. In addition to the wine paired dinner attendees will be invited to check out the new Jade Bar, to enjoy live musical performances from Dillon Dixon, Billy Austin, and Matthew Randall. The event costs $125 per person and reservations can be made by calling 480-948-2100.
