Tailgating is fine and dandy — and definitely fun if you’ve got the time — but if like us you’ve got five things to do before kickoff and no time for packing the cooler, here are five places to grab a bite before or after the big game.
The first debate between gubernatorial candidates Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal was what I expected it to be. Their positions on education and jobs are quite well known. Both spoke well, dressed alike and were pleasant. It was what was to be expected.

Five hundred years ago there was a group of Christians living in Europe known as the Anabaptists. These are not to be confused with today’s Baptists, though the groups do share points of common history. The name Anabaptist was not so much a description as it was a condemnation.
It took all of two seconds for me to lose any enthusiasm for the “Expendables 3,” and an additional three seconds to realize how stupid the additional two-plus more hours of screen time would be. It came from on-screen text to inform the audience the train they’re seeing on screen is an “armored prison transport,” which is made quite clear once star Sylvester Stallone and his compatriots start shooting the heck out of that thing. What that reveals is a supercilious attitude of the audience's ability to decipher the action on screen – a habit the filmmakers fall back on repeatedly – and an overarching inability to do something interesting with staid material.
We love recipes that are quick, simple and taste like a million bucks, so it comes as no surprise that we’re dying to try this übereasy cocktail from Tilted Kilt in Tempe.
As the Valley’s fight against the summer heat enters its final leg, another battle has begun — the Gelato Wars. Throughout August, 10 Valley chefs are competing to find the next best flavor of Italian ice cream — and customers get to be the judge.

It’s summertime! Time for beer, brats, baseball and the beach. It’s also time to be sure that your kids AND dogs are safe around water. For many Valley residents, most homes come equipped with a swimming pool. It’s important that your dog learn how to get out of the pool if they fall in.
The questions were about improving Arizona's economy.
Here we are, deep in the Here we are, deep in the dog days of another summer. School is out, vacation days are being cashed in, and picnic baskets are being packed. Barbecues are firing, pools are splashing, and ice cream trucks are rolling. Meanwhile, thousands, yea millions, are taking to the great American highway.

Every American knows that the Fourth of July is Independence Day. If we’re honest though, the first thing that comes to mind is, “Sweet, I get a day off work.” We plan our social calendar with pool parties, barbecued burgers and homemade ice cream.
As somebody who spends a whole lot of time thinking about grilling, I love that so many Americans celebrate the Fourth of July by busting out the grill.
