DLT is a big fan of the Spartan Race which is coming to town February 9th and 10th. This year’s race supports two great charities, Green Beret Foundation and Creekside Outreach. Both are military based and help veterans. The wave will be geared towards secondary students (age 13-18) and will establish roots in Arizona for our High School Program. Their Reebok Spartan Race High School Program includes the teen only heat called the Reebok Spartan Race High School Challenge (HSC) and the ultimate goal to make this sport recognized in the United States, Australia, Europe, etc.
Normally the HSC is $30-$40. The charity 10:30am heat in Arizona will be a FREE HSC. A waiver must be signed by each racer.Parents, school faculty, and other adults are also welcome to run during this charity heat. However, they must pay the insurance fee. Both students and adults must register through spartan race, which is ultimately through active.com.The code for students is AZHS. The code for adults is AZHS14. Spartan Race will donate to the above charities for every racer that crosses the finish line.
We wish Amare Stoudemire never left town. Well he was back last night (out of uniform due to injury) and after his team took down the Suns with a buzzer beating hoop he rolled in his old watering hole MercBar in the Esplanade. At least he had something to celebrate, we just wish Sarver would figure out what he’s doing with our own team.
The DLT office loves this product and so does Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels. Pictured here is the latest flavor, natural orange, to join the company’s shot line up along with their fizzy powders, that come in orange, pink lemonade and acai.
We have to figure that anyone that pays as much attention to what they put into their bodies as Jillian knows how to energize properly. It’s natural, it taste good, and it makes us feel great. And we’re told its coming to a Sprout’s stores in Arizona next month. Thanks Sprout’s. [EBOOST Store]
Custom one-of-a-kind organic modern sanctuary on 2.2 acres. Architect Will Bruder designed The Platt Residence using an abundance of contemporary materials, including steel, glass, copper and desert masonry. Bruder, a well-known architect who designed the world-famous Phoenix Burton Barr Central library and apprenticed under Paolo Soleri, won the Arizona Institute of Architects’s and Sunset Magazine’s AZ Home Of The Year in 1989 with The Platt Residence. This is a beautiful example of Bruder’s philosophy “Make the ordinary extraordinary”. Upon arriving at the residence, the scenic location will captivate you, with mountain views and a rural setting, even though you are only minutes from shopping, restaurants and the 101 & I-17 freeway. You’ll find a newly constructed detached 30’ x 28’ extended garage, which blends with the landscape and offers 3 modern re-purposed metal and glass garage doors (all with openers), built-in cabinetry and a dutch access door. Serene desert landscaping in the front yard was designed by Thomas Park at Xerophytic Designs Inc. and includes gabion walls, stabilized granite walkways, native plants and a garden fountain.

This impeccable Modernist home is a residence of museum-like quality that celebrates the juxtaposition of Nature and Machine like perhaps no other in the State. Spanning eighty feet across the lot and over a lush native arroyo, the home becomes a “Living Bridge” that allows the occupants to enjoy a unique connection to the beauty of the Sonoran Desert. »READ MORE
“Il Bosco is tiny. It’s charming. It’s friendly. It’s delicious. It’s everything you want in that sneaky little winner of a pizza joint. But it’s also got Forrest working the floor just about every day and night. He’s truly one of the nicest guys you’ll meet in this biz and he makes everyone feel welcome. And, he’s done some longtime research on every recipe.”
Turn up the volume and listen to “Take Care” in a way you’ve never heard.
Since 1996, when owner John McDonald opened his swanky Phoenix lounge MercBar, known for its chic ambience and cocktail collection, he has seen other restaurants and hot spots at the Camelback Esplanade open with a bang and shutter with a whimper.
And while others have suggested McDonald change his original business model, the native Phoenician credited the Merc Bar’s success to his refusal to give in to trends such as gimmicky deals, massive discounts and becoming a nightclub.
“We’ve never tried to chase the business,” McDonald said. “We’ve ridden several waves of up and down, but we’re a straightforward, simple business. We stuck to our guns.”
Today marks the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Almost 3,000 people gave their lives over a decade ago. Today, we and the rest of the country honor them. Whether you’re at work or at home, take a moment of silence and think of the family and friends who have lost loved ones. Think of the thousands of service men and women who have put their own lives on the line since then. Think of the fire fighters and police who charged into those buildings, without hesitation. Think of the passengers aboard the United flight 93 and their strength for fighting back. Today, let’s forget about the waging political war on Capitol Hill. Let’s forget petty squabbles and unimportant things. Let’s remember that we are all Americans and we’re pretty damn proud of that.
Some of latest trends around town have been neon. Neon colors everywhere. Whether it’s jeans or nails, bright colors are dominating this summer. So what’s the next step in this craze? Neon hair, of course but with a twist: hair chalking. It’s exactly what it sounds like, chalk for the hair.
With hair chalking, you can complement any outfit with streaks of color. The best part about hair chalking is that there is no commitment. Unlike other hair dying options, it’s not permanent and comes out with a simple shampoo, which means your hair’s color can change at the same pace as your outfit.
Mane Attraction, the salon behind the chalking, offers a shampoo, blow-dry and chalking as part of a special package.
Even in this fledgling economy, it seems that Old Town Scottsdale has no trouble expanding in the face of adversity….by this we mean no trouble expanding our waistlines, of course. From the men who brought you Zinc Bistro and The Mission, two of the city’s most successful and raved about restaurants by locals and critics alike, comes The House, a brand new eatery that has taken over somewhat of a historic property on Main Street. When we first heard the news, we squealed like Augustus Gloop in a chocolate factory and practically set up camp outside the decided location next to Grazie Pizzeria. But like all good things, we’ve had to wait for the charming abode to get a makeover and for all the elements to come together. Well, that wait is almost over according to this recent article by EaterAZ that actually takes readers inside the new restaurant whilst under construction. We’re already in love from the looks of it, but will obviously review in time just to make sure. Check out the video on their website and start counting down the days.
It may be 110 degrees everyday but at least we do not have sharks.
Starbucks Coffee Company has found a way to harness the goodness in unroasted coffee beans. It’s perplexing. What will they think of next?
Remember last year when they teased us with those delicious “Refreshers” only to take them away under the guise that we were a “test market” and they might be back. Might be? Well, they are. And good thing too, as it is not polite or smart to take away someone’s morning beverage. The crazy part? Although they look and taste like tea, they are actually caffeinated coffee drinks. Now that’s science.
Not only did these tasty summer beverages launch (again) today, but on Friday you can stop by any Starbucks for a free tall Berry Hibiscus or Cool Lime refresher from 12 to 3 p.m.

4th of July weekend usually means big blockbusters to rake in the crowds and the dough for all those looking to make the most of a day without work, but since our fine country’s birthday fell on a Wednesday this year and put a wedge in many a beach vacation, the great cinematic unveiling felt more like a trickle of might-sees than the usual release of anticipation-building films. If you’re curious, check out our list of the latest flicks to hit theaters in hopes to help you figure out what to see or not to see (because isn’t that always the question?)
The Amazing Spider-man – We had pretty strong feelings about this remake after first hearing about it, and for legitimate reasons. Toby isn’t dead yet, he isn’t even in an old age home talking about his glory days as a superhero or even telling his kids about the good old days (because he doesn’t have any) and Kirsten Dunst is still a bankable box-office hottie, so why the rush to pump out a new installment of the franchise while our generation still remembers all the details of the old one? We couldn’t tell you, but we can tell you that watching Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield be adorable on every red carpet and talk show the past few weeks has kind of warmed our frigid, frigid hearts to the idea. A new story, a new cast and that new fangled 3D technology puts The Amazing Spider-man in the “see” column for a regular summer weekend. »READ MORE
