Eight’s Check, Please! Arizona Festival at CityScape

The most popular locally produced TV show on Eight, Arizona PBS takes over CityScape in downtown Phoenix Sun., April 28, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., for a live food event aptly called Eight’s Check, Please! Arizona Festival.

Eight, in collaboration with R Entertainment Company, will transform CityScape into an exploration of Arizona’s independent restaurant scene – from five-star dining establishments to tucked-away cafes. The event will showcase cuisine from at least 36 of 117 independently owned Arizona restaurants previously featured on the show.

In its third season, the Emmy Award-winning series Check, Please! Arizona features favorite local restaurants as nominated by viewers. Those viewers come in studio to share commentary about their favorite dining spot and exchange opinions with fellow guests who experience each other’s favorite place as well.

Chef Demonstrations, Panel Discussions. TV Auditions.

Among event highlights are cooking demonstrations, panel discussions and the chance to audition for a spot on Check, Please! Arizona. Producers seek congenial fans who are passionate about their favorite local restaurant, articulate about food and honest about their dining-out experiences. Cameras will be present to tape the auditions.

For the camera-shy guest or those who simply avoid the limelight, a diverse array of culinary offerings will be featured by the participating indie restaurants, as well as samples of fine wine and craft beer, all included in the ticket price. A James Beard Award-winners’ panel hosted by James Beard Award-winner Robert McGrath is planned, as well as talks on locally sourced foods, fine wine and craft beers. In addition, a cooking demonstration stage will be in full gear, featuring at least four independent chefs.

Independent restaurants participating include:

Tarbell’s

Tuck Shop

LON’s at the Hermosa

Phoenix City Grille

Haus Murphy’s German Restaurant

Vogue Bistro

MacAlpines

Flancer’s

Pittsburgh Willy’s Gourmet Hot Dogs

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012

JAMIE Loves in March…

Spring!

I am so excited that spring is here! One of my favorite things about March is Spring Break. Unfortunately, I am always super busy with work in March and therefore cannot go anywhere too far. Lucky for me, I live in one of the best cities, full of activities, amazing hotels, spas, restaurants, shopping and more. So this month I will be taking a “staycation” where I will relax here in Scottsdale. I will be staying at one of my favorite hotels, golfing at one of my favorite courses, and eating at one of my favorite restaurants.

The Royal Palms

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012There are so many amazing resorts from which to choose; this month I will be staying at The Royal Palms. For one, I love the location; it’s right on the base of Camelback Mountain, so the views are breathtaking. Secondly, I love the intimate setting of the resort; you feel at home here. And lastly, I cannot deny a great spa! A massage and facial is just what I need on my “staycation.”

Desert Botanical Garden

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012One of my favorite places to visit in Arizona is the Desert Botanical Garden, and springtime is the best time to visit the gardens — the wild flowers are blooming, and the cacti are so green! In collaboration with Ballet Arizona, the Desert Botanical Gardens brings Topia. The dancers perform with the backdrop of the red rocks as the sun sets. This event goes from March 2-March 26th, so get your tickets now on the Desert Botanical Garden website.

Tarbell’s

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012There are so many talented chefs living in Arizona; one of my favorites is Mark Tarbell and his restaurant Tarbell’s. I love the atmosphere and the people there. Not to mention, the food is super tasty; one of my personal favorite dishes is the grilled organic salmon. This plate with a good glass of wine and great company, there is no better way to enjoy my “staycation.”

Love,
Jamie
