Our Cup Runneth Over

So who’s ready to drink? In case you didn’t find something to tickle your fancy in our earlier St. Paddy’s Day party guide, here are two more quick-hit can’t-misses. Celebrate Chicago-style in the heart of North Scottsdale at West Addison’s St. Patrick’s Day Block Party. Housed inside Market Street in DC Ranch (who knew there were still places open up there) watch all the March Madness inside, or spill out onto the outdoor plaza filled with festive green fountains, live music and traditional Irish foods.

Meanwhile, over in Tempe, Robbie Fox’s Public House started pouring Guinness out of 6 beer trucks at 6 am this morning. Meanwhile, AZ rockers The Brazen Heads and The Celtic Cowboys take the stage starting at 6 pm. Oh, and the bar is located on Mill Avenue at 6th Street. We’re sensing a theme here.

Good luck and be safe out there everybody.

St. Paddy’s Day Savior

Don’t wanna star in Sheriff Joe’s stupid new Reality TV show? Get your drunk ass self home safely (and freely) with Valley-based Discount Cab, who is offering patrons a “Free Ride Back” St. Patrick’s Day. Don’t be like one of the 18,000 Arizona drivers cited for DUIs last year, and simply order up a cab while you’re out and about this evening/tomorrow morning. Then call again in the morning, and they’ll send over one of these (surprisingly clean, not smell) green machines to drive you back to your car the next day free of charge, no questions asked.

Slap Me I’m Irish

So we’re all for going green, especially on St. Paddy’s Day, but this is ridiculous. Meet Dave Rittinger, an artist, blossoming fashion designer and amateur model, who’s designed an entire line out of leaves. Not faux leaves, or leaf-printed fabric. But leaves, like the kind you’d pick up in your yard. You know, if we didn’t live in a desert.

Hey Dave, the Jolly Green Giant called, he wants his tunic back.


Pies, Nut Fries & Green Beer

For 90 years, Rock Springs Café has been a welcoming watering hole for travelers along Old Black Canyon Road (now the I-17 highway). Perched atop a rocky plateau some 40 miles north of the Valley, Rock Springs started as a general store for gold miners seeking their fortune in the nearby Bradshaw Mountains. Today, however, Rock Springs Café is known throughout the West for its awesome house-made pies, ranging from traditional favs such as banana cream and rhubarb crumb, to more exotic offerings such as Jack Daniels pecan and Tennessee lemon.

And this Thursday, March 17, the Rock Springs Cafe will be rolling out the kegs for its annual Saint Patty’s Day festivities, hosted on a scenic outdoor party pavilion overlooking the restaurant’s namesake creek. Can’t make it up on a weekday? Well, you’re in luck pardner, cause Rock Springs is also home to a mouth-watering monthly BBQ, featuring live country-western music and one traditional Western delicacy that you won’t find on too many menus.
