We had the privilege of being invited to the “Family and Friends” event at the NEW eegee’s in the shopping center, in the SE corner of Orange Grove and Oracle today. Great food and a wonderful friendly staff. Some of our “Arizona Photographer” photos are displayed inside, so stop on in and enjoy great food and service, and interesting photos.
We had the privilege of dining at the historic Skyline Country Club in Tucson’s Catalina Foothills. The cuisine was prepared by award-winning chef, Chef Issa Moussa and his staff, and was absolutely delicious. The city views were spectacular, and the atmosphere was relaxing.

Their last day open at their St. Philips location was Thursday, January 13th. They opened the new Acacia just yesterday on Friday, January 14th. They are now located at Gallery Row, 3001 E. Skyline Drive. Find them on the Northeast corner of Skyline and Campbell.
New digs, new menu, same quality food and drink. We had the mahi-mahi tacos with a roasted jalapeno pepper, and calamari tonight. Both were excellent. They have the best view in Tucson, overlooking the city lights from nearly 3000 feet above sea level in the Catalina Foothills.

The Waste Management PHOENIX OPEN Golf Tournament comes to town this next week. The tournament is held at the Scottsdale TPC, which is basically kitty-corner to the Kierland Golf Course, pictured here. The Westin Kierland Resort and Spa is a great place to stay when visiting Scottsdale. Close to great golf and great shopping.
We were just up there over the weekend and the weather was spectacular, and the stores and Scottsdale restaurants were packed. The Phoenix Open is a great place to watch golf, and even if you have no interest in golf, it is a great place to get exercise walking and people watch. And don’t forget the wild 16th hole, if you go.
