Join us for November’s 7th on 7th Party and enter to win Coronado’s First Annual Dessert Contest! Do you have a tried and true “knock-out” recipe that you think your friends and neighbors will enjoy? Then bring it along for a fun evening of judging and sampling of all kinds of mouth-watering desserts. Prizes will be awarded to the winner and runners up, and the winning recipe will be published in the Coronado Dispatch. If you can’t bring a dessert, then show up with your sweet tooth — neighbors will also have the chance to vote for the “Coronado’s Favorite.” MacAlpine’s Soda Fountain, 2303 N. 7th St., is where all of the fun will take place. The contest rules are simple… Bring enough to share and let us know if it has nuts (for those that may have allergies). Judging begins at 6:30 p.m., so make sure your dessert reaches us in time! Judges include Councilman Michael Nowakowski; Danielle Librera, Chef & Owner, Sweet Pea Bakery; and MacAlpine’s very own Monica!
On July 29, find out what’s happening in south downtown Phoenix, otherwise known as SoDo. Sponsored by SKY Marketing & Urban Affair, the informal discussion will be led by Lyle Plocher featuring several SoDo businesses such as Brickhouse, Royal Coffee Bar, Sweet Pea Bakery, Coach & Willie’s, Cooperstown, The Ruby Room, and El Portal. And food is involved: burger, fries, and beverage special for $5.
- Date: Tuesday, July 29
- Time: 5:30-7:30 p.m.
- Place: The Brickhouse, 1 E. Jackson St., Phoenix AZ
