Mark Tarbell is a legend around the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. He has been for a long time. For the last couple of years, that legend has grown since he stomped Cat Cora on Iron Chef America.

I haven’t been in his place, Tarbell’s in quite some time…perhaps 7 years. Two events made me decide to head back out there and see what was up nowadays. The first one was the fact that my girlfriend and best friends were itching to head on down and battle the crowd at Pizza Bianco to see if it deserved the accolades it was receiving. The second was a Twitter message announcing a replay of that famed Iron Chef episode on the Food Network. I figured, we better strike before the iron gets too hot again with a bunch of FN groupies heading down there. (Those two things plus the fact that 1/2 the reviews from people on Citysearch said bad things about the staff and management at Pizza Bianco were enough for me to singly swing the tide and put Pizza Bianco off until another day).

So…we ventured to the Biltmore area…and a look of despair fell across the faces of my cohorts as I had them pull into a strip mall. The fact that Sportsman’s Fine Wines was in that strip mall didn’t seem to offer them too much hope… Continue Reading Dinner @ an Iron Chef Victor’s…

Currently, I am a flickrholic. It’s a disease, really. It has caused me to spend way too much money on camera gear. However, I am hoping to turn this latest hobby into a profession. Perhaps this blog will allow me to do that, by networking with other photographers. If you are a photographer in the Phoenix area, and would like to get together – drop me a line! If you are a model in the area, and want some shots for your portfolio, perhaps we can work out a trade.
