FUN THINGS TO DO IN OLD TOWN SCOTTSDALE THIS SUMMER

We all know what happens when the snowbirds start flying north for the summer in Scottsdale but many of us stay behind for the cool weather 😊. But just because it is summer doesn’t mean there are not still plenty of great things to do if you know where to look. And here are a few of my favorites…

HARKINS THEATRE’S TUESDAY NIGHT CLASSICS (TNC)

Do you love the experience of going to the movies but just can’t seem to find a good “new” movie to watch at the theaters? Or are the prices of new movies putting you off? Well, Harkins might have your answer. Along with the opening of Harkin’s beautiful new movie theater at Fashion Square Mall, you can now watch many of your blockbuster hits of yester years for only $5. That’s right – only $5! Starting in May, every Tuesday night at 7pm Harkins will offer these classics for you to enjoy and here is a schedule of the upcoming showings: https://www.harkins.com/movies/tuesday_night_classics

RECOMMENDED RESTAURANT: DIEGO POPS

One of the great things about summers in Scottsdale are the happy hour specials and some are simply better than others!  If you haven’t yet had the chance to try out Diego Pop’s which is located on Scottsdale Road just south of E Stetson Drive and The Montauk, you may want to add it to your list! It may look a little different with its art-deco in design but don’t let that fool you – the food is excellent! We were made aware of this restaurant by a local friend who told us that the happy hour and food was awesome – and they were right! Each night they offer a happy hour menu from 3-6pm that includes a bowl of their $3 Chicken Tortilla Soup which my husband describes as “the best soup I have ever had.” For more information on Diego Pops visit their website at: http://diegopops.com/

FASHION SQUARE MALL UPDATE: NEW APPLE STORE COMING!

As you know, we have been publishing updates about all the construction and improvements happening at the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. If you have driven by the old Barney’s store, you have likely seen a large hole where the store once stood. This is to make way for a new Apple Store that is sure to provide a well-trafficked and popular anchor to the mall. Using their famous glass-house design architecture, the new 15-17,000 square foot multi-level store is expected to open in late 2018 although that date could slip. We will keep you posted as we learn more…
