Eight’s Check, Please! Arizona Festival
PHOENIX (Jan. 14, 2014) – Eight’s Check, Please! Arizona Festival delivers once again, touting a restaurant lineup featuring culinary hotspots such as Tarbell’s, Durant’s, Citizen Public House, Cowboy Ciao and Centurion, among others. More than 30 restaurants transform CityScape for a second year into a culinary showcase of Arizona’s favorite independent restaurants, plus wineries and craft breweries, closing down Central Avenue in the heart of downtown Phoenix.
Based on the most popular locally produced TV show on Eight, Arizona PBS, Eight and R Entertainment Company deliver an exploration of Arizona’s independent restaurant scene, dishing out cuisine from five-star dining establishments to tucked away cafes.
Similar to the event’s first year, the second annual Check, Please! Arizona Festival promises a lineup of discussions, cooking demonstrations and celebrity chef participants to inform and entertain. For example, last year’s inaugural event featured a rare panel discussion of Arizona’s James Beard Award winners, among other sessions.
