If you're craving a juicy hamburger but don't want to deal with kiddie playgrounds and cartoon characters, check out this week's Meal Ticket dining newsletter for info on a late-night date place where burgers are king. We'll also have the scoop on a back to school party for grown-ups and one of the only places in town where you can sink your feet into the sand while sipping a fruity drink with an unbrella in it.

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.
