If you're eating and drinking, it might as well be good

Top Food & Drinks In the Phoenix Area

If you ever find yourself in the Phoenix, Tempe, or Scottsdale area there are a few places you need to eat at and a few you should consider just going for the atmosphere!

1. Fuzzy Taco

If you're looking for tacos, burritos, and a cheap beer you've come to the right place. Fuzzy Taco has a good sized menu with even better-sized beer. A PBR in a giant glass with cost you $2 and a Miller Lite is only $3. The burrito bowl was a hefty size and the queso needed to be smothered all over noodles in my opinion- cheesy and a little spicy which was perfect. To top of the meal you shouldn't forget a freshly poured green tea shot to get you feeling refreshed.

2. Cindy's Arizona Cafe

Located only one mile from Hohokam Stadium, home of the Oakland A's, this diner was interesting, to say the least. My friend and I walked into the owner saying someone walked out on him that morning and the gentlemen at the table next to us were retelling stories of his old girlfriends and he had more ladies than I could count on my fingers and toes... Aside from that, the food was amazing. The bacon was crispy, the waffle was crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and the eggs were cooked to diner perfection. If you're looking for a place with great breakfast food, this is it.

3. Pedal Haus Brewery

Pedal Haus Brewery is a place you should absolutely hit up for the atmosphere. This outdoor bar has corn hole and ping pong tables which is an absolute yes for me. The vibe is cool with string lights all around and outdoor fire pits with seating for big groups. The food at this place was mediocre. The only options for your burger are medium or well done which was disappointing for the girl who likes her burgers basically mooing on the plate. The second time we went I got a Margherita pizza which honestly, was better than the burger and it's not a pizza joint. Needless to say, this location is a must for the atmosphere 100% and the beer selection is on point.

4. Slickables

Is there anything better than cookies and ice cream? These fresh baked cookies held a giant scoop of ice cream and were the perfect treat after a long day in the sun. You can choose from a variety of cookie and ice cream options so there is surely a winning combination for everyone.

5. The Baked Bear

The Baked Bear is one of the tiniest spots I've ever seen but man do they pack a punch in their deserts! This one is a scoop of their classic bear tracks ice cream sandwiched between a warm glazed donut. If that doesn't get your stomach growling I don't know what will. You'll down this ice cream sandwich in no time at all.

6. Fat Tuesday's

Let's talk about some classic NOLA styled drinks for a second. This place was hoppin' for Sunday Funday and the drinks were just as wild. You can choose from a variety of flavors for these frozen alcoholic slushies. 10/10 would recommend the blue raspberry and the banana as shown here.

7. Creamistry

Ice cream is where it's at in the Phoenix area. Creamistry takes a plain or flavored base and then adds your favorite toppings. Seen here is a cake batter base with brownie chunks in it. After they mix up your base they use liquid nitrogen to make the liquid a creamy texture that is perfect for scooping.


Low-quality picture for a high-quality bar. This bar has buckets that you can get any drink you want in. They have their house suggestions but you can rock out with a beer, mixed drink, or hey, you want water in your bucket, you get water. The atmosphere at CASA is incredibly fun and the indoor dance floor is not for the faint of heart. So if you're looking to get down with your bad self-head to CASA, grab a bucket and get your dance on!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
