McFate Brewing Co. has two brewpubs in Scottsdale—their Blood Orange Wheat is damn refreshing in the desert heat. The O.H.S.O. Brewery & Distillery (short for Outrageous Homebrewer’s Social Outpost) has three craft beer bars in Arcadia, Scottsdale, and Paradise Valley.
February is a good time to take advantage of the outdoors in Arizona. Hiking Camelback Mountain is a right of passage, but if you want to experience Sonoran beauty with a little less rigor, the Desert Botanical Garden is the place for you.
