DEEPER DIVE: Ranking Arizona: Top 10 resorts for 2023
The Sip + Shop Summer Market Series is back for 2023, featuring local chefs, purveyors, and some of the hotel’s favorite wines and spirits. Plus, new for 2023, celebrity chef dinners will be held in conjunction with each event. The indoor market events will be held on June 17, July 15, and Aug. 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Sands and are free to attend. Each guest will receive a wristband for six tastings of wine, beer, and spirits and a 20% off voucher to use at ZuZu within 30 days. There will be live music as well as food by top local chefs and sweets from Pastry Chef Maria Arenas available for purchase. The celebrity chef dinners will be held on June 17, July 14, and Aug. 18 at 6 p.m. in Sands. Executive Chef Russell LaCasce and the guest chef will collaborate on a three-course menu with perfectly paired wines, featuring Lindsay Autry on June 17, Robert Irvine on July 14, and Rene Andrade and Beau MacMillan on Aug. 18. Each dinner includes a meet-and-greet reception with the chefs, and the cost is $199-$299 depending on the date selected (including tax and gratuity). Tickets are required for both the market events and the chef dinners, and can be purchased at hotelvalleyho.com.
Enjoy a colorful stay in Old Town Scottsdale this summer, including the perfect welcome amenity — a festive bottle of Prosecco and a ‘Welcome to Arizona’ treat featuring a house-made chocolate cactus. You’ll also get a shareable “Show Stopper” Shake of the month, $100 food-and-drink credit to use at the OH Pool (cheers!), and 20% off poolside daybeds and cabanas with code HOTGIRLHVH. Book between now and Sept. 3 and stay by Sept. 5. Visit hotelvalleyho.com for full details and restrictions.
ZuZu’s iconic "Show Stopper" Shake is a beautifully crafted, over-the-top delight with house-made ingredients piled on top. In June, try the Happy Shake, a chocolate milkshake topped with a burger-shaped chocolate macaron, French fries, cake pop chicken nuggets, red and yellow sprinkles, and whipped cream. The shake is $20, and $1 of each shake sold will go to Phoenix Pride. Visit ZuZu daily between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. to try the “Show Stopper” Shake; a new flavor is featured every month.
