Am thrilled for @aaron_chamberlin and his partners @artegennaro and Suny Santana in the opening of Taco Chelo on Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix. Run, don’t walk, for the tacos and a margarita (or two)! Open 3/9! #tacos #tacochelo

The wrap of Topgolf’s Chef Showdown with celebrity chef Scott Conant is on my IG story now. A competition between each Topgolf venue across the globe, Chef Showdown features 8 Topgolf chefs competing head to head to have their original dish featured on the upcoming spring menu. Cat Colaizzi from Virginia Beach won season 2 with her zesty Mediterranean Meatballs which will be on the spring menus in all 41 Topgolf locations. #chefshowdown #topgolf #scottconant

Who remembers when Miracle Mile Deli was in Park Central Mall? They are now on 16th Street south of Camelback and still serving up valley favorites. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, you can get their Corned Beef and Cabbage with Potatoes and Rye Bread from March 12 to 18 for $12. I also tried Matzo Ball Soup their for the first time, and it was just what the doctor ordered! Many thanks to @miraclemiledeli and Josh Garcia! #cornedbeefandcabbage #stpatricksday #miraclemiledeli #hosted
