Like you really need an excuse to eat cookies while listening to carolers……… BUT, just in case, how’s this? If you happen to be wrapping up your last minute holiday shopping in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, why not stop by The Saguaro Hotel and enjoy some old-fashioned caroling, homemade cookies and Iron Chef Jose Garces’ special blend of coffee.
Talk about the perfect pick-me-up! And the coffee has to be good…it’s Iron Chef-quality java!!
Of course, if you’re in the mood for a lil’ something extra, head over to Old Town Whiskey at the hotel for “spiked” hot chocolate and make-your-own s’mores by the fire on the patio.
