Every once in a while, we like to put the spotlight on some fellow local writers and mom-and-pop publications. Whether it’s a super-snarky food blogger, a passionate preservationist, or just a well-crafted design journal, these people all add a little bit of fun to the Valley of the Sun. Now, we’ve discovered a new gem that offers a little taste of all of the above.
Meet Locallilly.com, a daily arts, food and lifestyle journal that’s utterly abloom with the best local businesses, culture and events around Arizona. Looking to upgrade your morning joe, check out Lilly’s list of top neighborhood baristas. Or skip the Super WalMart and savor some fresh-plucked goodness with Lilly’s guide to local groceries and farmers markets. Then wash it all down with our favorite category, Beer, Wine & Good Times.
Even cooler, those culture cultivators at Local Lilly want to sow some local love by offering Scoop readers free tix to the Tony award-winning Broadway Musical, Fiddler on the Roof. Hosted at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed, Gammage Auditorium in Tempe on March 30, why not make a night of it, Lilly says with dinner and drinks beforehand? (They recommend House of Tricks, Canteen and La Bocca as nearby favorites.)
So wanna win? Simply write “Local Lilly” in the comments board below. We’re giving away a total four tix (two winners plus one guest each). Good luck and enjoy the grow.
