We spent the weekend in Scottsdale, AZ and had a blast. It was a last minute trip we decided to take because we had a Southwest flight that was about to expire. We didn't get there until late Friday night. There was a passenger on the plane that was a VERY frequent flyer. He had a ton of drink tickets and he bought everyone on the plane a drink if they wanted!

We stayed at the Camelback Inn Marriot Resort. Jackie was able to get us a sweet deal there. It was so nice.

Saturday morning we went to Old Town Scottsdale. There was a parade, farmers market and a festival going on with live music and street food. There are a lot of cute shops and great restaurants here. So much fun!
Saturday afternoon Brett played golf at The Phonecian. It was a beautiful course with great views. He played with a local who was a member and had a really good time with him. We actually ran into him and his wife downtown while we were eating lunch on Sunday afternoon. Small world!

After golf we went to a resort The Sanctuary for a drink and to watch the sunset. Brett has a co-resident from Scottsdale that gave us all of these great suggestions on where to go.
That is candied bacon in my drink. I don't know what else was in it but it was really good! Brett had a Moscow Mule. Never heard of it but we loved the glass it came in. We learned that this drink always comes in those copper glasses.

We had dinner at a place called FnB. It was all fresh, locally grown food and it was cooked right in front of you. Delicious food and entertaining.

We didn't call in time to get a massage, but had breakfast and hung out by the spa pool Sunday morning.

We loved it there and will go back one day if we get the chance!
