Food Truck Extravaganza 
Hey Scottsdale -- this is what you're doing for lunch today. Whole Foods Market Raintree is teaming up with the Phoenix Street Food Coalition for their second Food Truck Day. All of your food truck favorites will be hangin' out in the parking lot from 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.. Short leash Hot Dogs, Phoenix Cheesesteak Co., Bella Strada, Carte Blanche Tacos, Beet Street, Torched Goodness, Jamburritos, and, of course, Sweet Republic will all be there peddling their gourmet food truck goods. If you haven't tried Sweet Republic's artisan ice cream, we suggest you get your rear-end to the Whole Foods parking lot today and do so. 

Need a cool healthy treats for the kiddos? Try this super-easy kid-pleasing idea -- Grape-sicles! Just take plump red (or green) grapes, pop them onto a skewer, stick 'em in the freezer for a couple hours and BAM, Grape-sicles.  A perfect alternative to the standard sugar-sicle and great for those of you on that crazy HCG diet.

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.
