It’s been awhile since I blogged about anything food related – but here’s a quick one!
I am now writing an email news letter, called SWBN Hop Tips!,  for Brewing News is a group of regional newspapers focused on, you guessed it – brewing news. Check out the site, find your region and see what is happening the world of beer.

The Southwest Brewing News is published bi-monthly, but the Hop Tips newsletter goes out every two weeks, to keep you up to date. So, if you know of a beer or brewing-related event in the Southwest, please drop me a line either here, or at

I’ll make sure the event gets marked on the calendar, and into the newsletter!

Ah yes – yet another restaurant discovery for me. This one came to my girlfriend’s attention via a recommendation from a friend of a friend, rather than our usual Food Network network!

We hit this place up around 6pm on a Tuesday, which is a good night to go, as all bottles of wine are 1/2 off. In addition, if you get there before 7pm – apps and beers are on “happy hour” special. That means beer runs around 4 bucks, and apps are 1/2 off. The place starts to pack them in right around 7ish, so getting there early is nice.

Since it’s located in North Scottsdale – it is tucked away in the corner of an upscale strip mall, anchored by a Fry’s Signature store. That’s par for the course in that territory.

The food leans toward Cajun, although there are some hints of the Southwest on the menu also. Continue Reading Jasper’s Peak Bistro – Cajun Food in Scottsdale…
