Adding to Arcadia’s growing list of neighborhood bars, The Little Woody is now open where The Great Mistake Escape used to serve. If you haven’t been in, The Little Woody’s name seems a bit strange for the new hotspot. But a quick step inside the back entrance of the unassuming bar on Indian School, tells the story. »READ MORE

Red Hot Robot Blasts Off for New Location

May 5, 2011 | 10:32 AM | Local | By Staff

Recently, Valley geeks were crushed to hear that Red Hot Robot, the Tokyo-tastic home for everything Anime and Sci-Fi is shuttering, was shuttering its sleek storefront inside Central Phoenix’s popular Medlock Plaza mini mall. (Located at Central and Camelback, Medlock’s also home to the charming Frances Boutique, the indie record shop Stinkweeds and the cotton candy-colored Smeeks sweets shop.)

But fear not Red Hot Robot fans, the store has simply moved into a new space at the even-hipper corner that is 16th St. and Bethany Home.


Mmm, Beer

February 18, 2011 | 6:07 AM | Bars | By Alanna Watson

Although we’ve barely recovered from our Super Bowl/Phoenix Open hangovers, it’s time to hydrate in preparation for the first-ever Arizona Beer Week. With more than 160 events happening across our fine state including the 11th annual Strong Beer Festival on February 19, it will be pretty hard to avoid (but, in all honesty, why would you want to?). Might as well jump on the beer-chuggin’ band wagon and plan out your upcomming seven days of hops, heads and hangovers. Get the full schedule on their website here.

Hello Scoopers. “Enough of the nostalgic architecture posts,” you say. Give us something savory, piping hot and insider-only. Well try this one on for size. We’ve learned that a certain famed Valley food-dude is quietly constructing a new restaurant in the heart of the Arcadia/PV/Biltmore areas.


[Updated] Morning Mystery Solved

We knew it! Turns out this prime location will be turned into a new restaurant by a famed Valley food-dude. Check today’s Scoop Factory for all the savory deets!

So this is a picture of the now-former car wash at 40th Street and Camelback. Positioned on the Arcadia/PV border, it’s in the heart of the always-hopping LGO/Postino/Vig/The Grind restaurant row. Plus it features million dollar views of Camelback. All of which makes us wonder if this isn’t going to be a chic new eatery. We’re burning up the phone lines to see what we can confirm, but we wanted to throw it out there. Anybody got the inside Scoop?
