My Life Is Average Monday: Best of Phoenix A'fare

Luck plays a funny role in our lives. It was a friend of a friend who first introduced this event to me. There was a lot of maneuvering in order to get a good deal and after tickets were secured, the friends  who had introduced me to this event backed out. 

But basically, this was one big party. It took place at the Science Center and boasted free alcohol and food from over 60 local restaurants. The tickets were about 13 dollars. That's even less than an usual adult ticket to the science center, not to mention all the free drinks and food! It was a formal event too, with music, entertainment and dressing up. 

I tried a lot of interesting foods. To the left, some kind of open face mini-sandwich. The the right, a maple bacon doughnut. 

It was an incredible amount of fun trying to eat through three floors of the Science Center, drinking, and playing with all the fun science equipment that they left out!

Do you try to go to gatherings like this one?

    1. The no-reply function is more useful if you have all your comments sent to your email, which I don't. That's why I'm not using the feature right now. Sorry for the inconvenience!

  11. This looks like so much fun Aki! I love sampling food. We don't have events like this, unless I'm completely unaware of it. That's probably more likely.
