Mother Bunch Brewing

March 18th, 2018

I chose to go to Mother Bunch Brewing, simply because the name reminds me of the band Mother Love Bone, this week to indulge in their craft beer. Approaching this old brick building attached to a Cheeba Hut I didn’t know what to expect, from a sports bar type feel to a hipster run establishment. Inside it was neither. The vibe was very relaxed with the classic music of Tom Petty’s Free Falling and the Eagles Hotel California lightly playing. There are two small TV’s playing March Madness games, families and strictly beer drinkers encompassing the area. One wall displayed a mural painted... Read More

Haus Murphy’s

March 6th, 2018

Guten tag! Aaaand that’s about all the German I know. Why is this relevant? Because I am reviewing Haus Murphy’s this week, located in historic Old Town Glendale. The first thing you should know is Haus Murphy’s serves primarily German food, and I am sure that what comes to mind when I say that is sausage. Yes. They do serve a lot of sausages, but it is more than that! Before coming here, I didn’t know there were so many ways to prepare sausages, so I am only going to go over a few of the sort of ways they serve them at Haus Murphy’s. I am going to start with my favorite, The Big Smokey... Read More

The Film Bar

February 19th, 2018

  Ah yes, I am supposed to be reviewing the Film Bar this week! The Film Bar is this nice and chill little place on North 2nd St between Garfield and McKinley in Downtown Phoenix. It’s primarily a wine bar with a super relaxing atmosphere making it a great place to go if you aren’t much into the usual noise and chaos of your typical bar. I am one of those people that prefers watching movies in theatres than just streaming them on Netflix. There is something almost therapeutic about going to see a movie the old-fashioned way. Or maybe that’s just the wine talking? However, as the name... Read More

The Duce

February 12th, 2018

I was not planning on writing about The Duce today, but I was so attracted by the curious place that I could not help myself. Upon entering the large building on 525 S Central Ave, my attention was first drawn to a full-sized boxing ring right in the middle of the restaurant. Walking up to one of the bartenders, I asked what sort of place the Duce was. His response was a scratch of his head and stating, “That’s a hell of a question…” I am still not quite sure what the Duce is, but I will do my best to explain. From what I understand, it is a bar/restaurant/community center/clothing store/gym/music... Read More

The Arrowhead Grill

November 11th, 2017

People don’t look at me and go, “Now that is a guy that looks like he knows a thing or two about fine dining!” I accept that. But with that said, the Arrowhead Grill at 8280 W. Union Hills Dr. is one of the best steakhouses I have ever been to. I felt a bit out of place wearing a black Motörhead t-shirt and jeans (thank goodness there is no dress code) but that first bite of steak made the awkwardness more than worth it. The quality of this cut of meat was undeniable as the juices from each bite into that New York strip delighted my taste buds. Furthermore, it was cooked to perfection and... Read More

Carly’s Bistro

October 28th, 2017

Nestled next to a small park and a tattoo shop (that I highly recommend. I get all my ink done there) is a little bistro called Carly’s. It is a restaurant that I have been frequenting for quite a good number of years now and I can honestly say that not once has it disappointed me. The first thing you may notice about Carly’s Bistro is that it appears to be very “artsy” so to speak. Colorful modern paintings decorate the wall, sketches are etched into wooden table tops, and a large mural of a lounging woman with a bottle of wine in hand hangs above the bar. Luckily, the... Read More

The Cobra Arcade Bar

October 14th, 2017

Some things were just meant to go together. Peanut butter and jelly, movies and popcorn, etc. And one of my personal favorites is videogames and alcohol. Enter the Cobra Arcade Bar on 2nd street in the always active Downtown Phoenix area. As you may have guessed, the establishment caters to gamers of all ages (so long as they are over 21) and sport many cabinet games that are sure to sound familiar to most such as Galaga, Dig Dug and the ever frustrating Battletoads. But they make sure to stock the place with some fresher titles as well such as the new Tekken and Mortal Kombat sequals. All in all,... Read More
