How The Arizona Taco Festival Failed

I was pretty excited to attend the sixth annual Arizona Taco Festival this weekend. But, I was sadly disappointed. Not only did it pour on us, which never happens in Arizona, but also the entire event was so poorly organized. First, we had to park so far away. We could have parked closer but there were so many cars and people that it really wasn’t worth it. The walk was sort of nice though bec[...]

Review: Roku’s Customer Support

I decided to get a Roku about a year ago. I wanted to be able to watch shows that I missed on Hulu and be able to binge watch shows and movies on Netflix. I have some friends who have a Roku and have been very pleased with it. Roku has a handful of different devices to stream entertainment straight to your television. Users have access to over 2,500 channels like Netflix, Hulu and so much more.[...]

Fall Television is Finally Back

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but I LOVE it. Maybe it is because everything smells and taste like pumpkin or because the weather is finally starting to cool down and I can whip out my favorite boots and hoodies. But I think a lot of it has to do with all of the great television shows that are on in the fall. Sometimes my favorite shows don’t come back or they come back better tha[...]

Delicious Fox Restaurants Take Over

Phoenix is home to the Fox Restaurant Concepts headquarters owned by Sam Fox. Fox has gone on to create 15 progressive and unique dining concepts in seven different states. But lucky for Phoenix residents, they have the chance to experience all of them. There are a number of restaurants to choose from, but these happen to be my favorite from Fox Restaurant Concepts.

Colbert Nails His Late Show Debut

I have to admit that I was a little weary of Stephen Colbert taking over The Late Show. I am a big fan of Colbert and loved The Colbert Report. So I was afraid Colbert would change his ways, but I am happy to see that he is the same Stephen Colbert we all know and love. Over 6.6 million viewers tuned into the debut of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. David Letterman was the host of the show from[...]

Have you Seen Straight Outta Compton?

It has been a couple of weeks since Straight Outta Compton hit theaters, but I finally had a chance to see the film and I was very impressed. I had heard that the movie was extraordinary and the best movie of the summer, but I did have my doubts. After walking out of the theater, I agree, it was phenomenal and might even be the best movies of the YEAR. The movie takes viewers on a journey throug[...]

Anyone Else Obsessed With Orange Is The New Black?

I know I am a little late to the party, but I just started watching Orange Is The New Black a few days ago. I am only on season 2, but I can’t stop watching it. The Netflix series premiered in July of 2013 and became an overnight sensation. If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you start watching it. It just released the 3rd season in June and I am excited to know that the fourth season is sched[...]

My All-Time Favorite Las Vegas Hotels

Growing up in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, I didn’t live far from Las Vegas. I have been to Sin City hundreds of times. There is so much fantastic shopping and events, but the best part of Las Vegas is the glamorous hotels. I have been fortunate enough to stay at various hotels, but these happen to be my favorite on the Las Vegas Strip. Venetian The Venetian is probably my absolute favorite h[...]

Magic Mike XXL Delivers a Big Package

I saw Magic Mike XXL last night and let me tell you, it was everything I had hoped for. It was such a fun movie to see with a girlfriend and we laughed until our faces hurt. There were a lot of funny parts and it was more entertaining than I thought it would be. The first Magic Mike came out in 2012, but I didn’t see it until last year. I never wanted to see it because I thought it was just going[...]
